The final installment of the Lonesome Snails of Hawaii features the main players (besides us) that have taken the entire population of endemic snails nearly out of existence. Back in the day, people brought the giant African snails (Achatina fulica) to the Hawaiian islands as food. Then they became pests, too many eating crops. So what did we humans do to try and curb the giants' numbers? We brought in the speedy (speedy for snails, anyway), voracious predatory snail called the rosy wolfsnail (Euglandina rosea) which they thought would eat the African giants. But they decided to eat everything instead, including pretty much all of the native species of snails on the Hawaiian islands (and other islands as well). And by the way, the introduced rats and chameleons aren't helping the "jewels of the forest, either."
Luckily, YOU can help right the wrongs of human folly!

Part 2 in the Lonesome Snails of Hawaii features the little Newcombia cumingi, a snail that looks so much like the plant it lives on, it confuses itself.
They give live birth and have a lifespan between 10-20 years. Their shells are the color and texture of the trunks and branches of their native host trees. They’re often
found hanging out on small branches and twigs. Their shell shape, color and their behavior are likely a camouflage against predators.
The native snails of Hawaii are disappearing possibly faster than any group of animals on the planet. Check yesterday's post for more info on the people who are trying to save them. 🐌🐌🐌🐌🐌🐌🐌

Here's part 1 of the series I'm making with the help of conservation hero David Sischo @dsischo — the guy who's saving the native snails of Hawaii.
Laminella sanguinea cats its beautiful shell with sticky mucous that winds up collecting dirt from the forest. It's believed that the debris acts as a camouflage to protect the snail from flightless birds that used to stalk the woods (before they went extinct). This is what David has to say about it: The Hawaiian Islands was host to a spectacular radiation of land snails with over 750 species found nowhere else in the world. Unfortunately, introduced predators such as rats, rosy wolf snails, and Jacksons chameleons have wreaked havoc on this fauna. Around half of these species have vanished already, and approximately 100 additional species will likely go extinct within the next decade without intervention. To learn more about the conservation efforts of the Hawaii Snail Extinction Prevention Program, check out this article and documentary from the Atlantic Magazine.

I was hoping to avoid making a comic about the fires in Brazil (I'm good at avoiding things), but so many people asked me to make one so I did. Plus, these things are just not letting up.
Under the new Bolsonaro regime, where there are more relaxed fines for Amazon land gobbling by farmers, around 40% more of the rainforest has been burned to be turned into pasture when compared to last year (beef cows gotta eat). Apparently, to make matters worse, if you illegally burn land, get caught and fined, your profits for selling the land are MUCH higher than the government fines anyway. In other words, the Amazon is toast.
Perhaps the small, local Seattle business, Amazon.com, should consider throwing some of its tax-free billions toward saving its namesake, hmm? Just sayin'. Looking for ways to help out (besides being angry at Jeff Bezos and not buying from Amazon.com)? Check out

September 7 is Vulture Awareness Day!

Did you know that vultures have special enzymes in their digestive systems that break down diseases like cholera, anthrax, botulism and rabies?
In Africa, vulture populations have plummeted. One of the reasons is that poachers poison the birds after they make a kill. This makes it harder for authorities to track their activities. It makes it easier for them to get diseases, however.

What's your favorite bird? Any vulture fans out there?

Are you aware of my shop? (link in bio)

Traces of moon snails can be found all over the world. Ever see a shell with a perfectly round hole close to the hinge? Well, that's the work of a moon snail's drill-like radula, which carves into a bivalve's shell to suck out all its guts.
If you've ever been on the shoreline at low tide and noticed weird-looking grey circles that look like broken toilet plungers, that's the work of a moon snail as well. It's an egg case crusted with sand.
The mother rolls upside-down, lays about 500,000 eggs in a gooey blob. When she rolls back over, the "collar" of sand forms around egg case. 6 weeks later, you've got more mini drills sliding around the ocean.
So, don't ever drop your plungers on the beach unless you want to make these gastropods upset. And who would want to do that?

August 31st is Eat Outside Day!
One of the most often misunderstood things about spiders is that they're like vampires that suck the guts out of their prey. The truth is, spiders need to barf digestive juices on their victims before eating them. Then they munch away on the half-digested mass of puke and flesh. So what's a creature, like the diving bell spider, to do if it lives all its life underwater? How can it vomit on things before it eats it? Once it catches its prey, the spider will drag its meal into its air bubble, which is a special web that holds an air pocket.
Amazingly, scientists have found out that the bubble really never needs to be refilled with air, it actually lets carbon dioxide out and takes oxygen in from the pond water, acting as an inorganic gill. The spiders would never need to have more air added to it, but nitrogen leaks out of the bubble, which makes it shrink. So once in a while, spidey has to attach air from the surface to its butt and bring it over to its bubble-web diving bell.
In other words, they're forced to always get takeout—let somebody you like to get takeout with know about the spider's dining habits!
Be sure to visit the shop for the big sale!

There's so much to say about the plight of the African painted dogs. Their habitat is disappearing, they get caught in traps that are set for other animals, their vast habitats are fragmented and shrinking—in other words, they're going extinct.
If you'd like to know more about them, and hear from one of the people who's dedicated his life to saving these pups, give a listen to the latest episode of the @allcreaturespodcast.
Do you have any funny dog stories? I once lived briefly with a pug who stole sandwiches and was self-scooping, if you know what I mean!

Did you hear about the waterbears on the moon? Apparently, the Israeli craft that crashed onto the lunar surface a while ago had a dvd-sized disk with tardigrades taped to it!
I'm not saying they'll evolve to something like in the comic up there or nothin'!
In case you don't know:
Tardigrades, or water bears or moss pigs, are the heartiest lifeforms on Earth. Scientists have discovered their hundred-year-old dried out bodies and reanimated them in a drop of water. What's more is, they've survived the complete vacuum of space and harmful radiation. It's been recently discovered that a protein called Dsup (short for "damage suppressor") sticks to the organism's DNA which acts as a radiation shield.
As you can see, this Genetically Modified Giant Tardigrade will not be easily destroyed, despite having a sneaky kid in his pen. 🌊🐻🌊🐻🌊🐻🌊🐻

The American paddlefish has been swimming around for about 200 million years in the fossil record. Nowadays, they're listed as vulnerable on the endangered species list—mainly because of habitat loss. But thanks to a LOT of effort, their numbers are kind of not plummeting. Their close relatives, the Chinese paddlefish, however, are pretty much extinct.
As you can see, I think the fish's profile look a lot like the profile of a pelican!
Did you know pelicans almost went extinct? The insecticide DDT that was used to kill pests washed into waterways, was infested by fish, which the pelis ate. The chemical made many kinds of fish-eating birds' eggshells too weak to develop. Once DDT was banned, the birds recovered.
So there's a story about how humans CAN affect the world in a negative➖and a positive➕way.
Do you think the pelican should eat the paddlefish?

Here's the original "Dont Drop this Thing in the Ocean" comic from 2016. It's still an old favorite of mine, which is why I keep coming back to the scene like I did for yesterday's comic.
And it's #sharkweek so you know, sharks.
Original caption:
Because basking sharks have hundreds of teeny-weeny teeth and they really want to try something besides krill.
Anybody have any ideas for what NOT to accidentally drop in the ocean?

Do you know what some of the most genetically unique and critically endangered animals are? According to the @zsledgeofexistence , They're the sawfish! So what you don't want to do is drop a chainsaw in the water, which might confuse them. More importantly, you don't want to irresponsibly eat fish. Use apps like @seafoodwatch and eat food responsibly, because bicatch is the biggest killer of these strange creatures that reside in the shark family.
So what's the deal with the saw? Well, their rostrum, or snout, has a bunch of electroreceptors called ampullae of Lorenzini, which detects prey and is a great term to enunciate. The teeth that line the thing are for defense or attack.
Questions for you:
Do you recall the sorry person in the comic dropping something else in the water? Do you recall what happened?
Are there other things that should definitely NOT be dropped into an ocean? For instance, a koosh ball near sea urchins?

The goblin shark and frilled shark are both deep sea dwellers. The goblin probably uses its pointy snout to help it detect prey in the darkness. Once it finds something to eat, it'll snap its jaws, which extend further and quicker than any shark.
The frilled shark uses its eel-like body to lunge at prey like a snake, catching food with its odd needle teeth.
Both of these sharks are caught as bycatch, as fisheries trawl the ocean depths, looking for other fish. Can you spot other bycatch species in the net with the snapper harvest?
Please consider using resources like @seafoodwatch before consuming food from the ocean!

Hey! I'm back—happy Shark Week!
Great whites are ambush hunters. They like to eat big things like sea lions and catch them from below. So sometimes they'll break the surface while they're speeding from the depths as they crunch down on an animal. I'm sure they'll show it on Shark Week, which starts tonight. Or just Google it—it really is spectacular.

I've always thought of the Galapagos's marine iguanas as being the coolest lizards. With their flat tails for swimming, long claws for gripping slimy rocks, teeth made for scraping delicious seaweed and nostrils built for launching extra salt from their bodies, they are the best. The bigger ones can swim for a while under the cool water, looking for the best algae to eat—while the smaller ones graze in the intertidal zone. When they're not dining, they hang out on the rocks and sun their dark bodies, firing salt boogers from their faces. 👉10 points to anybody who knows the original line and origin that the marine iguana's saying. If you don't know check out my Instagram story. 🌊Which would you rather live with—a land or marine iguana? Do you live close enough to the sea to keep a marine Iggy happy?

Did you know that July 12 is #DifferentColoredEyesDay ? People used to think that some folks who had heterochromia (different colored eyes in the same head) were werewolves. Well you can't see it in the comic, but the wolfwere has heterochromia too (just in the opposite eyes 😉). What animal would you like to turn into? Bonus question if you're playing along—if a full moon🌕 turns people into werewolves, what would turn you into your animal? I'll think of one in the comments. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌕🌕🌕🌕🌕

Here you go—a new one for Plastic Free July. Remember: many animals can't tell the difference between plastic bags and jellyfish. Many sea turtles eat many kinds of jellies as a main food source. Unfortunately, lots of our garbage that's used for less than 15 minutes, gets caught in our waterways and can severely injure animals.
Soooo reduce your single use plastics! 🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢

Here's one more comic for #cephalopodweek —and it's romantic, isn't it?
Bobtail squids are kind of like a cross between a cuttlefish and regular squid. They're shaped like cuttlefish and they move like cuttlefish, but they don't have a cuttlebone. The most remarkable thing about them, though, is their symbiotic use of a bioluminescent bacteria Aliivibrio fischeri—which lives in an organ inside the bobtail's mantle, where it's fed sugars and other chemicals. When it comes out to hunt at night, the cephalopod uses the light-emitting bacteria to simulate the moonlight, thus making it nearly invisible to creatures (like the dwarf moray eels) as they look up at the shimmery surface of the water.

Have you ever looked into the squiggly pupils of a cuttlefish, or any other cephalopods, in an aquarium or in the wild? They definitely seem to be judging you from hundreds of millions of years of survival. 🐙🦑🐙🦑🐙🦑🐙🦑🐙🦑🐙🦑

If you watch closely, whenever spiders feel like they're about to do anything risky, they'll attach a line of webbing to make sure they're safe.
Well not only did this youngster forget his dragline, it lives in an alternate universe where it has to endure dad jokes!

June 16 is World Sea Turtle Day and I have a story for you!
When I was on the island of Kauai in Hawaii, I saw a bunch of sea turtles laying around on the beach. (Well first I saw some rocks, and then heard a lifeguard yell at me to stay away from the animals. I looked around and noticed that the rocks were in fact green sea turtles.) At the time, I thought like all sea turtles, only the females go out of the water to lay their eggs, otherwise they spend their lives in the ocean—they were nesting. After some research, it turns out that like lots of humans in Hawaii, the sea turtles that live around the islands also like to lay on the beach. The northwestern islands of the Hawaii is one of the only places on earth where marine turtles just chill on the sand. Or rather, warm on the sand—since it's believed they're doing it for thermoregulation.
Oh and also there's more chickens roaming free on Kawaii than you can shake a pineapple at. 🐓🐢🐓🐢🐓🐢🐓🐢🐓🐢

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!

May 20 is World Bee Day. Since bees have such a rough go these days, what with insecticides, habitat loss and other factors like a weird fungal infection, I figured I would post this old classic of a bee antagonizing an inflated frigate bird. Go bee!
