Well if EVERYBODY wore aposematic colors then the aposematism would not be effective, eh?

In total contrast to camouflage, these bright patterns help the animals survive. So there are some species that copy the dangerous ones, like the monarch (poisonous) and the viceroy (not poisonous) butterflies. There's also the yellow and black stripey bees (⚠️) and hoverflies (🙂) that I made a comic about a few weeks back.
Or was it months? Does time make sense anymore?

I know a lot of you reading this are scientists—i want to know what you do and where you're from. I'll be waiting down in the comments.

Now let's talk about time—this frightening year is almost done, so why not get a new calendar? I just made one! You should get it and flip through all the months with a different endangered species.
And while you're shopping, visit my merch store at Threadless to see what's new.

Mom's ultimate sacrifice or is she just fed up?

Stegodyphus lineatus, aka the desert spider, that lives in Europe and Central Asia, vomits highly nutritious food for her babies until she can't anymore. Then they eat her.
Talk about home cookin'!

What's a favorite food that your family prepared for you while you were growing up? I hope it wasn't puke! Let me know where you're from and what you've liked in the comments.

You probably knew it was coming...

Here's a comic representing the "K" portion of the r/K selection theory. This is when parents invest lots of time into their offsprings' development. The theory states that the energy spent on rearing young comes from the fact that the likelihood of reaching adulthood is high. Common species are humans, bears, whales and eagles.
Because they're worth it.

What kind of pets do you have? Are you a r or K-type pet owner?

🗓Toss 2020 in the garbage and enjoy 2021 with the @underdonecomics Endangered Species Wall Calendar. Or buy something in the shop!

Quality or quantity?
That’s the r-K theory of selection—some organisms have a lot of offspring because their life sucks and they don’t live very long—so they have a huge quantity of kids (that’s the r-selection theory).
Common creatures that are r-selectors include rabbits, crabs, mice and bacteria.

K-theory creatures include whales, Eagles, elephants and humans—we invest a lot of time and energy into our kids.
What do you think the K-strategist book should be called?

Whew! 2020 is winding down. While nobody can guarantee a better year next year, I can offer you something to look forward to—this wall calendar!
Spend some time with endangered animals as the months flap by. It's now available from MagCloud!

A portion of the profits will go to the @zsledgeofexistence program, which gives a shred of hope to some really weird and highly endangered critters.

Order now and you'll probably get it in time for the holidays (but remember, it's still 2020)!

“That is the president of the United States. That is the most powerful person in the world,” he added. “We see him like an obese turtle on his back flailing in the hot sun, realizing his time is over, but he just hasn’t accepted it and he wants to take everybody down with him, including this country.”
—Anderson Cooper

Even though it's an amazing quote, and theOatmeal guy drew a beautiful comic about it, I can't help but feel bad for the turtles.

So I'm reposting this, for the sake of the turtles.

I apologise to many of you and I also say you're welcome to those who appreciate this joke.
It's been swirling around in my brain for months like a grain of sand that grew into a grotesque pearl.

Do you eat salad before or after your main course? I mean it makes sense to eat it after since it pushes the food through, right?

Have you seen my threadless shop recently? It's grown a lot, check it out! Link in bio. And I've got a new merch announcement coming soon!

Take a break from all areas of this stinky country and smell the hoatzin.

What a perfect bird with which  to start off November. Meet hoatzin, the bird that smells like manure.

If you get a chance and can wade though all the political slop, look up pictures of hoatzin chicks. They have dinosaur claws! 

So if you're ever in South America and let one rip, you know what to blame it on!

Tell me where you're from and what's your favorite bird. I need a destraction. Bigly!

🦇New Bat Week Comic!🦇

It's commonly known that insects and flowers have evolved together to maximize pollination—but I just found out that lots of plants have evolved crazy ways to attract bats.
Apparently the vine in this comic grows fairly spread out throughout the forests of Cuba.
Bats have much bigger pollination ranges than insects—so a bat is the perfect pollinator for these widespread vines.
Scientists tested the echo of specialized leaves that sit above the flowers (which sit above the sweet nectar bucket). It turns out that bats learned to recognize the vines with the satellite dish-like leaf is a beacon of great flavor. The pollen gets all over the fuzzy bat sides and off it goes to find more vines.

Can you give me an example of your favorite co-evolution? I love these stories.

By the way, in the cartoon there's a Leach's single leaf bat, also known as Greater Antillean long-tongued (long-named) bat feeding off the Marcgravia evenia vine.

Hey, the last week in October is Bat Week. So I'll be posting bat comics until Halloween.

Like this one from last year:
Pallid bats are biggish for bats and range from Western Canada to Central Mexico.
To find food, they use their giant ears to listen for critters creeping on the ground.
Sadly, noise pollution is hurting their ability to hunt.

Do you have any odd bat facts to share? Please do so in the comments!

Hi everybody!
My shop at Threadless put up a competition for best illustration with the theme of "snowglobe."
Naturally, I made an image that fits the @underdonecomics style.
It would be great if you visited this link and ranked it (high, hopefully).

I'll also put it in my story so you can swipe up!

Thank you all!

Oh happy Hagfish Day!
What's not to love?
They have a super ability to secrete slime out of pours in their bodies and fill up buckets and buckets in seconds! (Hence the Slimer costume).
They can twist their bodies into knots in order to get leverage, while biting off a hunk of scavenged flesh!
There's so much more.

Here's my annual hagfish story:
In 2017, they filled Highway 101 in Oregon up with slime. Imagine, you're driving along one of the most beautiful roads in the world, a truck turns over and suddenly your car is covered in these wriggly suckers!
I was actually stuck in that traffic (but a mile or two north of where it happened).
Later that day, I was at the @oregoncoastaquarium staring down a small tank filled with a few of the slime eels—hagfish and me were meant to be, I guess.

Due to overfishing in Asia, certain haggies are considered endangered. people have to get their delicious sticky monsters from Oregon.

Did you see the article about the baby two-headed shark that popped up as bycatch off the coast of India?

Well it happened and the first time I made a comic about 2-headed sharks was way back in 2016. Here's the old write-up:

Two-headed sharks are popping up every once in a while in labs and by fishermen. Nobody knows why they have this genetic anomaly—is it due to overfishing which creates a low gene pool? Toxic chemicals in the water? One thing is for sure, though, unlike these two makos, they are never found surviving outside the embryonic stage. How would they make up their minds?

Now let me ask you—would you want any extra body parts? An extra ear on your backside to hear your farts better, maybe?

Oh we owe so much to the horseshoe crab. I remember seeing them doze their way up the Jersey Shore when I was a kid. They're harmless, they look angry, and nowadays they have a right to be.

They've been scooting along the sand for no less than 440 MILLION YEARS (that's a while, like pre-dinosaur, pre-permian extinction) and now they're endangered.

BUT—they're endangered for a good reason! Their blue, copper-based blood has some chemicals in it that forms oozy walls around bacteria. So in 1970, scientists used it to form LAL, which is a substance that detects bacterial infections around medicines in labs. Before that, people who tested drugs had to inject lab bunnies with their pharmaceuticals to see if anything was contaminated.
Now people harvest about 600,000 horseshoe crabs a year, tap their blood and return them to the sea—some of which actually survive the process!
Because of their sacrificial blood, the IUCN has put these ancient creatures on their list of vulnerable species.

❓⏰What other articles do you think are in the Coastal Times? Let me know in the comments! (I'll go first).

Finally—a non-cephalopod comic!

Some points of interest about the spotted salamander:

🟡 they have been known to live for more than 30 years!
🟡 when the atmosphere is right (good weather for them) the salamanders migrate to the vernal pool in which they were born and mate—sometimes hundreds of thousands can be seen at the same time.
🟡 their eggs can have a symbiotic relationship with the green alga Oophila amblystomatis. Since the salamander eggs are coated with a thick jelly, they can't breathe, so the algae farts out oxygen for the eggs while they're developing into tadpoles!

What's your favorite amphibian?

Alright ONE more comic about cephalopods, because after all, October 9 is Nautilus Night.

🌀
It's fun to compare nautiluses and argonaut octopuses. They kind of look similar, based on the shapes of their shells, but thats about where the similarities end (besides the overall alien-looking cephalopodiness).
People have known for a while that the argonaut octopus (aka paper nautilus) develops its paper-thin, translucent shell to use as an egg case.
What they didn't know until recently is that the argonauts squirt air into their shells in order to remain buoyant at certain levels in the open ocean.
Nautilus shells, though, help the animal maintain their buoyancy by osmosis in their many chambers. Nautilus shells are also built for protection. They're well camouflaged (white on the bottom for looking up and darker on top for looking down).
While female argonauts hold on to their shells with their suckers, true nautiluses live inside theirs and can't leave. They're the only existing cephalopods which always live inside their shell.
You could say they're the turtle of the cephalopod world, but I don't know why you would.

Come out of your shell and buy something in the shop—or become a patron!

Octopus Week Day 7 (NEW ONE):

Seriously, these things have been evolving (albeit slowly) for hundreds of millions of years to become magical hiding wizards. Once in a while, though, one will go off the deep end and become the farkaktapus.
Feh! That's just a bobbemeintze.

What's your favorite Yiddish word? 

1 more day of octopuses until World Octopus Day (finally).

Octopus Week Day 6:

Just about every squid has 8 arms and 2 elongated tentacles trailing from its body. For some reason, the family called the armhook squids only have 8 arms and no tentacles. What's up with that? Clearly octopuses don't care.

Are you getting sick of OCTOPUSES yet? I am! New comic coming soon!

Octopus Week Day 5:
Most octopus species die right after they pass their genes on to the next generation. Males die almost as soon as they release their sperm to a female (if he's not eaten by his potential mate first). The females keep living until their broods hatch, then they die.
Scientists have discovered, though, that the clumsily-named Larger Pacific Striped Octopus (LPSO) breaks almost all the octo-rules. Not only does the male survive after mating, the female is able to have multiple clutches of eggs throughout her lifetime. What's more, LPSOs sometimes live together without cannibalizing each other—which is amazing, when you remember just how mean and solitary most octopuses are.
When you consider this, I'd guess the teenage LPSOs are quite a handful.

Octopus Week Day 4: (NEW ONE)
Groupers find fish that hide in the cracks and crevices of the ocean floor. They'll signal to a neighborhood octopus, who then sticks her extremely flexible arms and suckers into the hard to reach spots, hoping to flush out the hiding fish. As seen on Blue Planet II, sometimes the octo gets the prize, sometimes the grouper gets it. Either way, the octopus always seems annoyed to be helping another creature. But hey, they're hungry.

Octopus Week Day 3 — How would a blind octopus do?

Cephalopods only have 1 light receptor in their retina, making them pretty much only able to see black and white. Scientists have puzzled for decades how these animals can change their skin to blend into their backgrounds so well—and more so—how they can take the risk of making themselves visible to their potential mates if they can't even see colors.
Well, apparently they can see colors, just not the way we do. A team of scientists are theorizing that their odd pupils, which can be W, U or dumbbell-shaped, let light in from many directions. This enables them to see colors. The researchers also believe that this kind of color reception takes up a lot of brainpower—a lot more than our circular pupils need—so that may be one of the reasons cephalopods became the most intelligent invertebrates.

Octopus Week Day 2 — A Classic Love Story

This is one of my all-time faves. If you've seen it, share it!

The male and female blanket octopus have the largest size differential between sexes of any animal (not including microscopic life). If a male ever finds a female in the open ocean, the male will fill up his hectocotylus (a modified arm) with sperm, rip it off and hand it to her, then he'll die. The female will continue her pelagic life and collect more hectocotyluses in her mantle. When she's finally ready to have kids, she'll take the sperm sacks and squirt them over her eggs.

Did you know there are two schools of thought regarding Bigfoot existence?

✨"Woo" folks believe that the elusive hairy thing lives on a different plane of existence—able to cloak itself or transfer from one dimension to another. Which, of course, is why it's so elusive.

🦍"Apers" use "science" to prove that it's just an extremely sneaky giant primate walking around the planet.

So aper or woo—what are you?

I've gotta say, I've sat through live presentations of "evidence" of both of these arguments and walked out less convinced than when I walked in!
However, no matter how you feel about the thing, bigfoots evoke a sense of mystery and wonder like nothing else. Maybe when I run into one it'll change my mind!

Check out my new experiment @loneliest_ape to see a daily Bigfoot sketch for all of October & beyond!
Woo woo!

The barnacle goose (Branta leucopsis) lives during the winter months in Scotland and Ireland. It's a small, non-assuming goose with a weird history. Since it breeds in the remote arctic circle, nobody knew where they came from, until sometime in the 12th century, when Gerald of Wales swore he saw one pop out of a goose barnacle that was attached to an old log or something. 
This was debated for centuries—and for a while if you were Catholic you could eat it on Fridays, since it was considered a fish!

The forth Saturday in September is International Rabbit Day!

I’ve wanted to make a comic about scavenging bunnies for a while. No, not like a vulture scavenging a roadkill bunny, but bunnies scavenging carcasses for meat. Look it up on NatGeo and you can see a video of the ruthless rabbits. “It is the rabbit! It’s got big pointy teeth!”

What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten? Mine's probably muskrat.

I'm sure you read the articles about it, but in case you didn't, here's a quick summary:
Ever wonder why there are fish swimming around in ponds or lakes that seem to be disconnected to anywhere that a fish might be able to swim from? Wellsir, Hungarian scientists were wondering too (along with countless people who've wondered through the centuries). They decided to feed some carp eggs mallards to see what would happens on the backend.
It turns out that around 0.02% of the eggs survived the digestive journey and were still viable.
So there you have it, waterfowl spreading life to seemingly unspreadable places.
Are you like me? Are you reminded of how comets might have spread life to planets throughout the cosmos? 

Wasn't there a Star Trek TNG episode about that, but instead of comets, the spreaders were an ancient humanoid species of some sort, selfishly spreading their own seeds?
Remember that?

Video games are a gas for excitement for Production X. Ever since video games encompass a huge number of digital resources, there are particular games that require particular software or a device to operate.Nintendo, Play Boy, Xbox, as well as PlayStation are a few examples of apparatus and prerequisites that people must possess to play matches. However, one must admit, no one is actually capable of buying all these devices.

Taking these constraints in mind, this guide will explain how to play GameBoy Advance games on the PC.

What’s GBA?

It is a product belonging to the Game Boy family line, and most of us would remember it as the purple coloured console used to play a number of 32-bit video games as a kid. With the progress of video game consoles and the wide range of games offered in the current market, GBA was discontinued in 2010, since Nintendo has started manufacturing more advanced products.

How to Play GBA Games on PC? An emulator is a software or a hardware, which is installed into a computer to act in a special way.

Within PCs, an emulator makes the computer act like a different computer or device. By downloading GBA emulator on the PC, while playing with the game, the computer will act as though it is a GameBoy Advance and thus, will encourage GBA games or ROMs.

Many emulators are available which can be downloaded in the PC to play GBA games. An individual can find Game Boy Advance emulators on site. 

Make certain to confirm the kind or type of applications before downloading, depending on the hardware and software ability of your PC. Click the Download button and the emulator will start downloading. Once the emulator was downloaded, click Run to start the setup installation. Following the emulator was installed, activate the software. The application of the emulator may also be observed on the background of their PC. To start any GBA game, one wants to click on the emulator software to trigger it.

Step 2 — Download GBA ROMs

ROMs are used to store data within a computer device. GBA ROMs are essentially like a software bundle of the entire game which can be played on almost any PC, given that a GBA Emulator is currently downloaded within the computer.

One can simply find GameBoy Advance ROMs on Website. It’s a website where ROMs could be downloaded of several consoles over the PC in order that games of those particular consoles could be performed directly on the computer. Since GBA games are widely in demand even now, the ROM can be easily downloaded from the mentioned web site.

ROMs can even be found on Website along with a lot of other matches of GBA. It’s one of the most well-known and trusted website for downloading the ROMs and GBA games. In addition to GBA games, an individual can also find a variety of games, which initially belong to other consoles. The games and ROM can be downloaded free of charge, with no risk of virus or malware.

Downloading GBA ROMs

  • Visit Roms-Download and then Choose the game from a huge variety of catalogues inside the website.
  • While selecting the match, be sure to check the score as well as the amount of downloads of the particular game. This gives an idea about the authentication and even prevalence of the game.
  • Choose the game and then click on the Download button.
  • The ROM will start downloading, and once it’s done, click Run to install the game on your PC.
