  1. these are absolutely stunning. Some, like that spider, look like the sort of thing I'd give a wide berth, but still beautiful...

  2. Those are incredibly interesting (except maybe the snake). The difference in creatures among the continents is truly amazing.

  4. Such an interesting Thursday 13. The aye aye is my favorite little lemur. I remember the Pochard from old stories. I hope it is going to make it.
