RE: Species of the Day
I might as well post this one earlier today, so that SOMEBODY won't beat me to it. Dodgy


Today's Species:

Desmodus Rotundus (Common Vampire Bat)

The common vampire bat is native to South America, and as its name implies, it feeds on the blood of animals.



Oh, sorry! I know it's fruit and not blood, but I just couldn't resist Big Grin:



Ironically, the real bats would feed on horses, and by extension ponies.

Why all the creepy crawlies? Sadcryface Now I'm going to have crazy dreams again.

The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

Suck it up be a man. That and you need to know the real animal world, not the cute fuzzy one.

RE: Species of the Day
Oh, oh, me, me! I have one.

I was in a plant nursery a few days ago, and I saw these gorgeous animals I could not name. They were flying around and fluttering very fast; they looked like hummingbirds and flew like hummingbirds. I excitedly pointed them out to all the people in the nursery. Next thing you know everyone is putting in what they thought they were and many began chasing them around with cameras. Most thought they were hummingbirds.

I said I thought they were some kind of moth, but that seemed wrong because it was bright daylight out, and none of us were acquainted with moth activity during the day.

When I got home, I Googled "hummingbird moth," and sure enough there they were--dozens of images.

The coolest part of all this was seeing people excited to experience something none of us were acquainted with.

My best guess is that they arrived in chrysalis stage on some particular plant in the nursery and emerged just in time for us.
