I'm sure you read the articles about it, but in ca 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?

Wouldn't Batman's sneaky, shadowy abilities fit better if he named himself Catman?

A friend of mine told me that there's really nothing NOT funny about Batman. Is that why he's so appealing? He sure takes himself seriously. But how serious can you be to wear that? Just curious.

I LOVE bats. There's nothing not amazing about them. I used to love Batman, until I started to think about Batman. I guess Lego Batman is pretty good.

Oystercatchers aren't listed as endangered but they're highly sensitive to coastal development and habitat loss.

😬if you've just seen this comic it's because I mistakenly wrote that the birds eat gastropods, not bivalves—both of which are molluscs. Thanks to @gleas_the_beast for catching it!

Do you like eating molluscs like clams, mussels, oysters and scallops? As far as eating animals are concerned, they seem to be the best ones for human consumption. Their farmed beds filter the water and help their environment. Of course what they filter might be an issue. But like I always say, what doesn't kill you gives you diarrhea, right?

Who says humans have no impact on their environment? Well, the naturalist Georg Steller, who explored Alaska, thought so. In those days, people hadn't realized the concept of extinction, let alone humans having the power to cause it. ⁣

In under 3 decades, the gentle sea cows that Steller observed protecting each other and seemingly mourning the deaths of herd members, were wiped off the face of the Earth. ⁣
⁣
Even though Georg found them to be delicious, some scientists aren't sure humans actually hunted them to extinction. Some scientists are suggesting that the overhunting of sea otters led to the demise of the sea cows. It's a simple formula: sea otters eat sea urchins, sea otters are hunted almost out of existence, overpopulation of sea urchins means they eat too much kelp, kelp is the main food source of the sea cows. No kelp = no sea cows!⁣

Living on islands in the Indian and South Pacific oceans, coconut crabs are as big as arthropods can get on land. And since they get up to about 1 meter (3.3 feet)—they get pretty stinkin' big.

Can Opener Day is right meow.

Take a close look at the face of the cat on the right. When I made this comic last year I tried to make it look creepy. Did I succeed? Does everything I draw look creepy?

Apparently Can Openers didn't come around until 50 years after people started canning food, thus making this an important holiday. Because, if you think about it, these days without can openers, we'd be just like the cats in this situation.
Apparently people used to use a hammer and chisel to cut around the top of the can.
What's the bigger mess: bloody people or spilled can goods?

Even though it's Shark Week—I can't ignore World Lizard Day!

Did you know until around 10 years ago, people thought the largest lizard in the world killed its prey by using a mixture of rancid bacteria in its mouth? It was thought the Komodo dragon would bite, then infect what it was going to eat.

Well, now it's known that the dragons use venom glands in their mouths to poison their food in order to disable it. The scientists were flabbergasted, wondering how they missed this adaptation for so long!

So it goes with science—the only thing constant is change. We're all witnessing that through our pandemic, eh?

(If you're looking for sharks, you can pretend there's one swimming off Komodo island is the background.)

Here's an old shark comic for you all. I'm not sure this would ever happen. But did you know that makos are the fastest sharks in the ocean? Imagine how fast they'd go with a bitey eel on their tailfin.

There are three kinds of thresher sharks: common, bigeye and pelagic.
My question to you is what kind of shark would you want to be?
-Toothy, like great whites and such
-filter feeder, like whale or basking
-Carpet, like Billabong
-Thresher for a tail-whip
-Rays, manta, stingray
-Or something else?

I guess it was only a matter of time before I made I guess it was only a matter of time before I made a comic about one of these frogs. I mean, come on!

Full-frontal Factoids:
Living exclusively in the troubled waters of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia and Peru, these highly endangered frogs dive deeper than any known frog.
Their baggy skin helps them absorb oxygen like a gill (no word on it shriveling up in colder water).

The frog's numbers are decreasing drastically. Its population has declined about 80% in the last 15-20 years! The reasons for its decline is because people eat too many of them! And so do introduced trout. And, of course, the enormous lake has plenty of pollution.

They’re also caught for traditional “medicine” but this, apparently, is a new thing. No records are found of them in markets 100 years ago. Perhaps they’re used as tea bags 😉?

Would you rather be a reptile or an amphibian?

As far as scientists know, the orca, short-finned pilot whale, beluga and narwhal (plus most recently false killer whales) are the only animals to go through menopause. Most every other healthy creature can reproduce until the day it dies.

It's believed the reason for this is because the grandmas are the leaders of the pods. They live with a couple generations of their offspring. They know where the food is, how to get it and when to get it. 

Of course, none of the whales live together in the wild—but if they did—I think once a week they'd resolve their issues after 20 minutes over dessert!

Sharks can go through an estimated 50,000  teeth in a lifetime. They’ve got a conveyor belt of sharpness in their mouths.

Evidence suggests that in the ocean's depths, sperm whales slurp up squid whole with their powerful tongues.

I'm assuming that most of you who are reading this I'm assuming that most of you who are reading this are humans—so if, like the crested gecko—you perform autotomy, your limbs won't grow back either.

Crested geckos will shed their tails if they're stressed in the wild (the wilds of New Caledonia is where they're from). In case you don't know, lots of animals, most famously lizards and salamanders, can drop their tails, which distracts predators and allows for escape. These limbs usually grow back but not so for created and some other geckos. I think it has something to do with their prehensile tail.

And as long as we're here, New Caledonia is also home to what's believed to be the smartest crows in the world—the New Caledonian Crow. So how wouldn't it know what the gecko's talking about?

Do you think autotomy is a conscious decision made by animals? If so, what's a phrase the animals under attack would say whilst dropping a limb? Put your ideas in the comments.

If you had a trunk for a nose what would be the fi If you had a trunk for a nose what would be the first thing you'd do with it? Id probably drink a beer while typing.

Some notes on the sengi:
Until 1997, the elephant shrews were dumped into the shrew category because they look and act like speedy shrews with elephant trunks. But after some genetic analysis, they were put into a new group, the afrotheria, which contains elephants, aardvarks, golden moles, hyraxes and some others. It's a great group, you should check them out.

It was also at this time that someone suggested we call them sengis, from the Bantu language.

Despite being one of the fastest small mammals on Earth, habitat loss and hunting have severely shrunk this creature's population.

If you had a trunk for a nose what would be the first thing you'd do with it? Id probably drink a beer while typing.

Some notes on the sengi:
Until 1997, the elephant shrews were dumped into the shrew category because they look and act like speedy shrews with elephant trunks. But after some genetic analysis, they were put into a new group, the afrotheria, which contains elephants, aardvarks, golden moles, hyraxes and some others. It's a great group, you should check them out.

It was also at this time that someone suggested we call them sengis, from the Bantu language.

Despite being one of the fastest small mammals on Earth, habitat loss and hunting have severely shrunk this creature's population.

I can't think of a more perfect book for kids than I can't think of a more perfect book for kids than Charlotte's Web. There's one thing that always bothered me about it, though. I truly think that if I visited Wilbur's farm, I'd exclaim, "Doesn't anybody give a shit about the spider that can write?" Maybe it's just me. Maybe people really despise spiders that much. What do you think?

Don't get me wrong, I really love this book. I obviously still think about it. So much so that I drew this comic in Garth Williams's style since he was the original illustrator.

June 28th is International Body Piercing Day! Her June 28th is International Body Piercing Day!

Here's an old comic I did that's completely relevant to the holiday.

Do you have any piercings? Does anybody know? Tell me about it!

Beaked whales are the last frontier for whale studies. They spend most of their lives in the deep, deep sea, making them difficult subjects to learn about. In fact, the Cuvier's beaked whale is the deepest diving mammal known. Scientists are just starting to learn about the behavior of these awesome creatures by shooting tracking devices into their flesh when they surface. I have a hunch, though, that only the cool whales surface long enough to get tagged—because it's fashionable #😎
Tag a cool, fashionable friend.

Lumpsuckers are little fish with sticky bottoms. T Lumpsuckers are little fish with sticky bottoms. They stick to rocks when the water gets rough. Well they're not really sticky, they use their modified pelvic fins to grip onto the sea bottom. They mainly live in colder, northern oceans and eat little bits of plants and animals.

I'm not sure they stick to each other, ever, but if they did, it'd be so 2020, right?

Let's end Father's Day with an old comic that I always think about this time of year. It features a 7-legged (!?!) Five-spotted hawkmoth and its larva, aka the tomato hornworm.

Insects have such crazy lifecycles—imagine one day being a wiggly, voracious maggot, spinning a sleeping bag out of your body, and then taking a nap. Next thing you know, you're completely different. Maybe you've got huge wings or you're the baby-making machine of a colony of millions!
I guess the point is, sometimes our parental figures seems completely different than us, but we always carry a part of them with us as we go from lifetime to lifetime in our own lives.

Theast I counted, I think I've lived 7 or 8 different lifetimes in my life so far. 2020 being the weirdest, of course.

Happy Father's Day from the animal kingdom!

One of the more interesting fathers that I've learned about is the plucky guillemot, a bird of the far north. Here's its story:

After a few weeks in the nest, guillemot dads "escort" their offspring off a sheer cliff face (the babies glide/fly hundreds of feet down to the water).
Back at the nest, the moms, who are exausted from feeding their chicks, stay back at the tiny nest site with thousands of other mothers in the colony.
Down at the sea, the dads feed their young while they chicks wait patiently at the surface.

These birds are much more at home in the water than in the air.

Guillemots can dive hundreds of meters. Imagine being in a deep sea exploration vessel and seeing a bird flying by!

Would you rather pilot an undersea explorer or fly a plane?

Which is your favorite name for this giant salaman Which is your favorite name for this giant salamander? -snot otter
-lasagna lizard
-devil dog
-mud-devil
-grampus
-Allegheny alligator
-mud dog
-water dog
-spotted water gecko
-leverian water newt
-hellbender

Or make up your own! Here’s one: side-breathing stream slipper. See those wrinkles on the salamander’s side? Those act as gills!

It’s a true shame that these slimy creatures’ numbers are dwindling fast, due to the usual habitat loss, poaching, over harvesting and pollution. There are some efforts being made to reintroduce the river loogies back to their native ranges. We’ll see how that goes!

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.
