Averaging 12”-16” tall. The dik-dik.
I must own all the dik-diks!

Who wouldn’t want a 12” dik-dik?

It is easy for us humans to forget that we live on what is possibly the greatest planet our solar system has to offer: Earth. (Jupiter is also cool, but only because it’s got that crazy red eye storm thingie that’s been going on for like a trillion years) While trying to grok the myriad mysteries of deep space, we are all too quick to forget that our natural world is full of its own unique mysteries. As the Romans said “To know thyself is to know God”. And as God said “If I see one more ad for The Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes I’ll come down there and fucking split Humanity in two with my omnipotent God-boner.” He really said that. It’s in The Bible.

But I digress.

There is a lot about the natural world that I’ll bet you didn’t know. Even the most familiar of animals have secrets that are known to very few. I, however, do a lot of reading on the subject, and have traveled the world over to become one with nature. I have been accepted into numerous tribes and animal groups and have learned secrets that no one else knows. Today, lucky reader, I will share those secrets with you.

The most important thing to remember is this: In the animal world, nothing is as it seems.

Very informative.

Turtle… on a roomba.

Now see, that’s just good use of the technology right there.

"Do you know why we pulled you over? Yes, your driving has been a bit erratic. Please step off the Roomba, sir. Thank you. I’ll need to see your license and registration…WE’VE GOT A RUNNER!!"

Axolotl - Ink and Marker, 2011 by Patrick Redman on Flickr.

‘How boring is it that children’s bestiaries always have cats and dogs and zebras? I thought I’d go ahead and create my own abecedarian bestiary using more interesting animals. Also, I wanted to try out some Copic markers. Always an ulterior motive!’

My wife: “Is that a band?” and, after having it explained to her, “It’s very cute, but it looks like it should be a heavy metal [album] cover.” She may have a point.
