Here's an article I found about different ancient creatures.  It's really cool with pictures.  I like the purple frog  :roll:

WH000T!!! The Mantis Shrimp is awesome, I liked the Horseshoe Crab, too. I bet that's where Pokemon got the idea for some of their creatures. xD

It was cool because when I went to the beach for Thanksgiving I found a horseshoe crab shell the size of my head and took it home.  It's really cool to know they haven't changed much and that I was holding a totally ancient creature :-D

My head really isn't that big *<:)

I saw a bigger one.  It was pretty sweet 8-)

Anyone up for the purple frog?  I want one.

But it would have to stay buried in dirt all the time, I'd never get to cuddle with it. :cry:

Nice article, Dae. I loved that playtpus.
You know, it's funny...I myself am quite interested in taxidermy, and more specifically "rogue" taxidermy (read: making weird s**t from dead animals), and most of the more famous rogue taxidermists consider the fellows who first preserved a platypus specimen as the fathers of rogue taxidermy, because the animal is just so weird it looks like God took all the spare parts and threw them together. :laugh:
