WM, 33, enjoys long walks along the beach...

... to see 50-tonne whale carcases.

Reposting a December 2006 pair of posts, about globsters, whale falls, bone-eating snot-flowers, wood falls, and sea daisys, because of Saloonperfume's post about the Chilean Blob

Word of the Day : Globster - Large, gelatinous, organic masses that occasionally turn up on beaches. They're quite often claimed to be evidence of zogging huge octopuses, but the less romantic fact is that they're most likely the decomposing skin and blubber from a long-dead whale.

Black Widow Snail??

WTF are you doing up there?

I'm kidding about the name but it was a wtf moment on my patio the other night when I looked up at the lantern and saw a snail sitting in a Black Widow web. He was a fat little thing too, that web was pretty strong. The widow did not bother to try to eat the snail. The snail blundered about the web the rest of the night wreaking havoc and then the next morning was on his way down the wall headed to my garden, to wreak havoc of a different kind.
