Krista C, found the little horseshoe crab on Cedar Key, FL, and she says, “Look at his little Telson!” Krista, what’s a Telson?

Made to Measure

There once was a hero named Pip


Who rode into town on a finger tip.


Listen, all you Ladies and Gents

I’ll rule the world inch by inch

Just as long as I don’t lose my grip!


Carol B. says she released Ms. Teeny McTiniest back into the wild after this photo.

Chapter 23, in Which Our Heroes Find Themselves in Grave Peril

With our compass lost in the blizzard, young Wainwright and I gamely vowed to soldier on as best we could. Shouldering our packs, we inched our way down the treacherous cliffs while I attempted to get our bearings by watching the sun. This, however, proved fruitless, as the sun seemed to dart capriciously across the morning sky. Yet it was not the sun that shifted, but ourselves, and it was then I realized we had become marooned on the dreaded… Index Mountains.


Natalie C. alerted us to this story from Zooborns, about the efforts of Marwell Wildlife Park to prevent the extinction of the tiny Partula snail.

Meanwhile, Back in Wonderland

Whooooo tooka my hookah? Was it YOOOU?


Very curious indeed, Ant and Kat Z. who might like us to think there are some bugs cuter than puppies!

Stay Together, You Kids!

Don’t go crawling off in every direction! Phoebe, don’t lick that, it might be salty! Hannah, stop sliming your sister, I’ve got my eye on you! And I’ve got my other eye on you, Margot — get back up here this instant! (OK, not exactly instant, but soon.)


Karen H. says: “Found these teeny munching ponies in a dalia plant in the garden. Some are so small they are translucent!”

How to Evict a Lizard

Some homes have roaches, this one has lizards. Well, one lizard, anyway — and getting this nimble cutie back outdoors where it belonged required a filing box, a bathtub, a plastic container, and a little bit of luck.

Go-o-lly!

Surprise, surprise, surprise!


Sha-zay-um, Jim!

A Warm Fuzzy Feeling

A valentine from Carolyn P.: “I was looking for a cute picture to put on the Valentine’s Day card I’m making for my boyfriend. My pet name for him is Woolly Bear – like the caterpillar! Soooo… I found this pic of this fuzzy, woolly little bug curled up into a perfect, teensy heart shape in the palm of someone’s hand!”
