Freaky Family

Lobo Lobo: Lobopod

Lobo Lobo: Lobopod

Some more family! Hallucigenia.

(I first read about Hallucigenia in Horseshoe Crabs and Velvet Worms, by Richard Fortey, in which he mentioned that the animal was thusly-named by Simon Conway Morris in 1977.) Tunny has her own way of remembering things though…

Tunny Tardi:

My ou broer,

wat is dit wat daar buite ons grashuisie roer?

Ek vermoed dis ‘n geel gemsbokkomkommer…

Vriend Ferweelwurm:

Nee mosvarkie, moenie wonner,

dit maak jou net dommer

om jou se koppie so te beslommer;

dis net ‘n nagwolf op sy Daliesque gebeen

wat so verskriklik ween!

Bye-Bye Baby Bootless

An empty crib

An empty crib

Oh noes! Has Baby Bootless taken up the life of a rootless, tizzy tumble wheedler? Is the Selaginella lepidophylla bouquet a subtle clue or just the goodbye gift of an errant moss piglet to a toey tunny? Only time will tell…
