Found this 10 weirdest newly discovered animals link on the NPR site. It seems like the buggers get weirder and weirder as the humans discover them. The rarest are probably just perceived at first as strange and unusual; but imagine what it was like to have seen a rhinoceros for the first time. The Europeans thought it was some kind of unicorn :P
Useless without pix, I know. I hate when these articles pop up without images of which to properly make fun. More vampire fans getting married in England.
I don't know a single vampire who has ever expressed an interest in a human themed wedding.
I guess humans have such a case of monster-envy that they're trying to find any way they can to associate themselves with us monsters. Now there's 'proof' that a full moon has a werewolf effect on people.
Cave spiders. Male on the left. Female on the right.
BBC Earth News. Sounds like the set up for a horror movie: Ten years ago archaeologists explored a cave, and accidentally brought back cave spiders in their equipment. The spiders made themselves at home in a nearby house. Now, they have to go back to the cave.
Like me, they don't like light, so I'm guessing they'll be much better off.
I must be losing a step. I had to find this floating around on Betty Bones' blog through my sister, DeMonica. I've posted finds about this guy, Juan Cabana before. Early on I didn't realize he's an artist, but now I really admire what he does. He's moved on from hoaxes, and is creating taxidermy creatures that never existed… at least as far as YOU know.
