  1. Who makes this stuff up? I've been thinking about baby ticks lately: NYMPHs, which I thought were beautiful wood spirits, like forest mermaids.

  5. That was educational. I knew some of those, but not all of them. We called them piglets, too!

  6. Very interesting 13! The baby alpaca is adorable! And, though I knew piglets were stoats, I think it's an English term. Nymphs are usually water born larval like forms that transform into adults and are similar to a moth or butterfly larval stage.
