I swear I was just looking at that website 3-4 days ago. And then, I joined this site a day or two later (maybe the same day.)
I guess it just goes to show how the brain works, that people of similar interests can have such similar yet wide-spectrumed interests.
Or, you're monitoring my browsing habits, you naughty naughty person.
I'm glad you posted different pictures than were on the site. I had known about most of them, so I hadn't gone digging around to read about them
If I had to pick, I think I'd have to say that my favorite is the Aye-aye. Yes, yes. It shows an amazing, almost Darwinistic transformation with its
highly specialized elongated hooked "finger". I had seen some nature/science show about animals and tools a while back, and they had shown the
Aye-aye, and how its adapted finger was used for digging grubs out of holes in trees. It's kind of a scary looking creature, but so pathetically
frightened looking itself, that you just have to feel sorry for it. But, then- I'm the type of guy that would take a day off of work to drive 2 1/2
hours to the other side of the state, in sweltering heat with the AC turned off, just to bring a baby orphaned bat to an accepting animal shelter.
Thanks for bringing my thought over to these boards. :-) B.T.W. If you get a chance to see Discovery's "Planet Earth" series and haven't yet,
it's fantastic for showing some very strange and wonderful creatures.
