Cat Nap

Tammy who volunteers at the Wildlife Learning Center brings us Boomer the Siberian Lynx who, like most cats, enjoys a good cat nap! She says that cats have a special way of saying hello: “One way cats, both large and small, say hello I like you is to give a head butt. I have gotten a couple of them from Boomer! I think I get a headache every time, he butts so hard:) I am not complaining though, how many people get to have a Siberian Lynx give them a head butt?!”

Master of Disguise

This isn’t actually a wasp – it’s really a moth! Mark says it’s a Texas Wasp Moth (Horama panthalon) which came to his balcony in Saint Martin. Apparently, the moth mimics a wasp that is also found on the island! Pretty clever.

Pot bellies on Iguanas!

Eva, a biology major at McGill University in Canada came across some very cool creatures while vacationing on a secluded island in the Bahamas. These are Northern Bahamian Rock Iguanas and with only 5,000 individuals remaining in the wild these critically endangered reptiles are a pretty rare site. Though, Eva does note that they seemed to be doing quite well on the secluded island, judging from their sagging pot bellies!

Heads up!

Katja claims that this Honeycomb Moray Eel isn’t giving us the stink eye but I’m really not too convinced!

Uncoordinated, but so Cute.

Allison’s horse Duncan is absolutely adorable, though she says he isn’t the most coordinated of horses. She says, “He’s really just a big rambunctious puppy dog.” Careful with that puppy Allison 🙂

Happy Voting!!
