Look at that elk’s butt! How could it not be a state mammal? It’s just screaming “Follow me to Utah! It’s so pretty here!” As of trundles through a patch of the state flower—the sego lily. 

And yes I added some bees, because it’s Utah.

Follow @underdonecomics to see which state is next🤔

This and all the other states I’ve made so far (7) are up in the shop! Just go to the link in my bio or linktr.ee/underdonecomics

I think about dung beetles a lot. Or maybe I don’t think about them enough. What do you think?

Follow @underdonecomics for more or less crappy content, depending on how you look at it 💩

One thing I do know is that we’d be up to our armpits in a lot more crap if those things didn’t have a taste for waste.

I THINK the animals in this comic are trying to tell you September 20th is National Voter Registration Day.
They’re also telling you to follow @underdonecomics

Besides registering to vote today, you can get this on a shirt, sticker, or whatever else you think might help convince people to vote for the sake of our feathered, shelled, denticulated or scaled friends!

Just visit the link in my bio and go to the GOOD CAUSES tab to get the merch!

It’s weaving it’s way through NM’s flower, the yucca.

MEEP MEEP! This guy is now available in my merch shop—and you can get it along with everything else—for 20% off if you use code:

This week’s State that I’m in project is Arizona!
Nope, the critter isn’t a raccoon (although it’s a relative) it’s the ringtail and it’s CAREFULLY monkeying around a saguaro cactus—the flower of which is a symbol of Arizona.
[how bad was that run-on sentence?]

Well, here in the US, Labor Day weekend symbolizes the end of the summer. 

So not many more warm trips to swim in the ocean—unlike harlequin ducks—who spend their lives getting crushed by waves. 

A reader once suggested the duck say "Pathetic" instead of what I originally wrote. Who remembers what the duck in this comic originally said?

Oh AND—summer might pretty much be done BUT the Labor Day sale in the shop still isn't over!

Ride the Wind Day is a thing.
So here’s a little old comic about a bird that wishes it could.
THOUGHT EXPERIMENT: if you could shrink down and use any bird as a form of transportation, which would it be?
Follow @underdonecomics for more bird-brained things like this.

Keep these comics from going extinct —visit the link in my bio and get something in the shop!

The creatively-named Inaccessible Island, which sits in the Southern Atlantic, halfway between South America and Africa, is one of the most isolated rocks in the world. But there's a flightless bird that lives there(?)! Around 100 years ago, scientists used to think that land masses connected the continents to this island, which allowed a shy little bird to walk over to Inaccessible Island. 
Thanks to DNA testing, however, researchers have figured out that about 1.5 million years ago, Atlantisia rogersi flew around 2,000 miles to the island. Their origin was probably South America, where closely related species of rails currently live. 
Since flying takes up a lot of energy, and there are no predators on the island, these rails stuck to the ground, acting like rodents.

It must be hard being a blind octopus.
But if you’ve got some good theme music by @vernzaborowski, life isn’t so bad, right?

Follow @underdonecomics for more cartoons from the strange natural world!

〰〰Did you know that octopuses are colorblind? According Berkeley scientists, the weird pupils of cephalopods bring light into the eye from many directions, which spreads out the colors and allows the creatures to determine color, even though they are technically colorblind.

Since it’s dark, at least where I am, I figured I’d share this bioluminescent comic with you.

🔊Be sure to turn up the volume—once again I've had the opportunity to collaborate with @vernzaborowski—how 'bout that?!?

Follow @underdonecomics to see what we make next🏗

Unlike fireflies, the lesser-known headlight beetle don't usually flash their lights. They remain glowing constantly, but may gain intensity when agitated (but don't we all). Headlight beetles are a kind of click beetle—fireflies are not part of that group = Convergent evolution, baby!

What happens when somebody discovers that marine isopods pollinate algae?
It gets a new @underdonecomics comic, that’s what!

Scientists found that red seaweed, Gracilaria gracilis, gets the help of little crustaceans that attach male gametes, or spermatia to their bodies while feeding around the algae.
The gametes lack flexible flagella to propel themselves through the water—without the isopod “pollination” would be quite difficult for the seaweed.

I’m return, the little crustacean critters get food and shelter in the algae. Along with a chip on their shoulder from all the attention land pollinators get.

Scientists think this puts animal/plant(ish) relationships back hundreds of millions of years 😯 

Here’s a succinct article about it, if you care:

🔊There’s so much important news to unpack here!

First off, put on some headphones and listen to the strange groove composed by my brilliant and old, old friend @vernzaborowski (like, early elementary school friends) and heed the important warning! 

Pterosaur sightings are on the rise! They seem to be centered in North Carolina but people claim to see them all over the US. What does this mean for cars and heads? We will only know as we get more information.

For now, all I can say is follow @underdonecomics and I’ll report more information if there is ever any hard evidence.
You also might want to follow @loneliest_ape to see more of my little sketches of Bigfoot. Not that living pterosaurs are cryptids or anything.

Here’s your Shark Week finale.

The chimeras, or ghost sharks are becoming my favorite of the shark-like things (elasmobranchs). You can see these particular ones (Australian ghost sharks, aka elephant fish) at the @montereybayaquarium in their amazing new deep sea section. Have you been to that place recently? It’s worth it. Plus @friendsoftheelephantseal bunk up on the beach just down the road!

Follow @underdonecomics and you’ll see something other than sharks tomorrow🤓

As Shark Weeks swims on, let’s take a look at the huge huge megamouth.
🧿🟰🧿
They’ve been found to be 27’ (9m) long—but they were only discovered in the 1970s. Makes you wonder what else is down there!
There’s a lot of weird things about this shark, but what stood out to me (clearly) was that white band that pops out when it extends its jaw as it gulps its food.
There was a lot of thought that the band was bioluminescent, like so many other sharks that hunt in the gloom, but I saw a paper that says it’s not. It might just glow because of all the glowy food it eats!
This comic was requested by a reader last year during shark week and I produced it a couple days later. Any requests for sharks out there? Maybe I can make one for you. (Still trying to come up with something for the elephant ghost shark.)

Keep these comics shining!

Oh, hello, it's Shark Week. I'll just post a shark comic a day all week.
So follow @underdonecomics because that's what we do during Shark Week—we look at sharks.
They're animals that need to have water flowing over their gills to breathe, so quit dumping diapers in the ocean! (Diapers of course are metaphors for all the plastic pollution—most of which is dumped by big companies who pretend to care).

What do you think is in that diaper? 1 or 2? 3?

Back from a longass road-trip—follow @underdonecomics for more!

Hummingbirds are everywhere—even when you can’t see them, you can usually hear their angry squeaks. I think of them as ornery little things that can stare down the biggest jerks around.

How much is a spindrel? Well whatever the amount is, hummingbirds use spiderwebs as part of their nests. The cup-shaped nest grows along with their bean-sized eggs and chicks.

What's your favorite backyardimal?

Be a fine feathered friend and buy something in the shop.

Hummingbirds are everywhere—even when you can’t see them, you can usually hear their angry squeaks. I think of them as ornery little things that can stare down the biggest jerks around.

How much is a spindrel? Well whatever the amount is, hummingbirds use spiderwebs as part of their nests. The cup-shaped nest grows along with their bean-sized eggs and chicks.

What's your favorite backyardimal?

Be a fine feathered friend and buy something in the shop.

It’s the ultimate fancy goldfish. A goldfish inside the bubble-eyes goldfish. How far can humanity manipulate nature?

Have any ideas for even fancier goldfish?

Follow @underdonecomics and maybe we can take it even further.
If you REALLY want to keep these comics from going extinct, check out the link in my bio and try out the new GoogleTenor Thanks thing! Thanks!

Here’s something I’m going to do: a #SundayReel —this one is about two pals from way back before the dinosaurs in the Permian period. It’s a dragonfly and a dimetrodon. I’m positive that’s how they both used to look. 
Follow @underdonecomics to see where these weekly animations go
🏃‍♂️💨
Would you like to see these Permian Pals on a shirt?

June first is both #DinosaurDay and #InternationalChildrensDay.
Here’s a little reminder not to go Mesozoic on your kids!
Fight-or-flight response is what happens when we are stressed out and we react to the stress as if it's going to do us harm.
We lose our connection to our frontal lobes and essentially lose our sense of self.
In other words, we're reacting the way a reptile would to a situation. 
Meditation, healthy eating and exercise are some ways that can keep the reptile-mind away.
Little rugrats certainly don't need to feel the brunt of your dinosaur roars, they have enough problems maintaining mammalian minds themselves.

Follow @underdonecomics which is usually less mindfulness-based and more biologically-fun-based comics.
And keep these cartoons from going extinct!
Visit the shop where you can get merch with this Dino design on it! Better yet, not only is there a big sale going on, many of the items donate directly to mental health and/or environmental charities!

Get this—there's a new feature on Tenor.com (google's gif search) called Thank with Google.
Here's the weird part—they (Google) asked ME :-o to help test it!

You can find the Thank with Google button next to all my gifs on Tenor.com (linked in my bio).
As a Google paid early tester, I'm participating in the pilot program for Thank with Google on Tenor which allows you to purchase a virtual sticker and directly show how you feel about the stuff I do.
Every time you send a paid sticker to me (there's a WIDE range of options for costs—including $0), you can add a personal message.
Feel free to send angry messages—I can take it (hopefully you’ll spend big bucks for those!) which will translate into direct revenue to support my work.
Hope to see you over on Tenor!

May 22 is International Day for Biological Diversity.
Follow @underdonecomics to keep these comics from going extinct!

What’s your favorite ocean critter?

Here’s one of my favorite biodiversity stories:
Kelp hosts a huge amount of biodiversity within its green, leafy, oceanic forests.
Sea urchins like to eat the holdfasts of kelp, which is the part that connects the root to rocks or other things on the seafloor.
But what if nobody's around to eat the urchins? Then, of course, the urchins eat all the kelp. The result is the biodiversity of an area goes down the toilet 🚽
Sunflower seastars are one of the animals that dine on urchins—but there aren't many of those left. They're dying out from a wasting disease which is most likely caused by warming ocean temperatures, which of course, is most likely caused by us human people.

Thanks again to @themarinedetective for her oceanic knowledge!

Keep these comics alive! Go to the link in my bio and see how you can get stuff in the shop and support wildlife at the same time!
