Wooooah!

I've seen tadpoles munch on eggs before but this is just crazy looking!

Wow! Almost a year since my last post. Since I probably only have two (high guess) readers I guess it doesn't matter.

I mean, really, what's the point of a blog that just posts links to other blogs. I should just start emailing links around.

edit:
Some great photos of frog and spider together here: http://www.anura.it/photography/spider-frog
Also some photos of young tarantulas co-feeding on another species of frog. Crazy!

Lungworms are good! (...hackhackcoughswallow)

I'm a big fan of parasites since reading Parasite Rex by Carl Zimmer. I'm also a fan of invasive species (ok, not so much a fan, but I enjoy reading about them) since Kim Todd's Tinkering With Eden. This little piece of news contains both.
in case you're new to the whole Cane toad saga

Speaking of frogs...






Picture by Mark a.ka. Pigface on dendroboard.

I've had this picture on my work desktop for about a week. I can't stop looking at it.
I might have to pick some of these up for my own collection.
