I just joined this community a few days ago after browsing LJ while bored at work. This is my first post. It's one of the saddest articles I've come across, about a lonely whale whose vocalizations don't match up to any other whales in the ocean.

Here's the article:

The rich man's stick insect, better known as the various leaf-mimicking arthropods and frogs, have adapted to their natural leaf and leaf-litter habitats in a really awesome way. Their exoskeletons - or skin, for the frogs - resemble fresh, fallen, and dead leaves, winning them the gold medal in the Camouflage Olympics.

Original article is HERE. Just a warning: although they're all .jpg's, they are all fairly big images.

Some copypasta for the linkophobes.Collapse )
