Book of the moment: Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children

This is probably the best book I’ve read in one sitting since JK Rowling’s Harry Potter & Sorcerer’s Stone.

The story is engulfing. The characters are thought out and amazing. the setting is amazing, and the world created is marvelous. I tried to just read a chapter at a time, but ended up reading the whole book. (oh, and there’s pictures…alot of pictures, and the pictures make the book alive)

Animal of the day – 03/25/2016 – The Cone Snail

The deadly geographic cone snail

The animal of the day is the Cone Snail. (Did you know: Oh my goodness, beauty betrays the beast. These wonderfully colored sea snails are predators (other snails eat vegetation, these guys hunt for meat!)

Because all cone snails are venomous and capable of “stinging” humans, live ones should be handled with great care or preferably not at all.

These snails use something similar to a needle to inject their poison into small fishes, but the larger versions can inject enough poison to kill a human (that would be you, unless you’re an alien reading this post. If so I hope ur Superman!)

Turtle vs rabbit vs snail. I’m gonna go with the snail! (assuming this race was underwater)
