Tiny Blob Monsters In Elizabeth’s Backyard!!!!

They’re COMING FOR US!

The TINY BLOB MONSTERS!

Elizabeth M-G’s already come face to, er, face with these mysterious visitors from far, far, away. “I was moving some plants around on my porch yesterday when I noticed these weird blobby things on a small leaf. Cute tiny blob monsters?? After a little online searching, these “creatures” turned out to be the eggs of a Leaf-footed Bug, probably the species [Say like Cliff Clavin: Ed.] Acanthocephala Terminalis, which I see around my Connecticut yard pretty frequently. Weird and cute!”

“The second photo shows the eggs from a different angle, where you can actually just make out the baby bugs folded up inside. Again… weird, and cute?? I think so…maybe.”

AA Batteries Not Required

This…is a Piglet Squid.

Now, this Jolly Little Blorp is rarely seen, or so says The Telegraph, so get a good look while ya can. And get this: “This squid species has light producing organs to help it navigate the depths.”

(So they’re their own flashlight!!)

Well, It Has To Be A Squnk

(Squirrel + Skunk = Squnk. Isn’t that the right spelling? Who knows, we’re makin’ this stuff up as we go.)

Ever seen anyone like thees? This little girl/guy was spotted in San Jose CA., and she’s/he’s called a “Piebald” sqwerl. Ah, let’s trot out The Big W for that one.

A Piebald or Pied Animal is one that has a spotting pattern of large unpigmented, usually white, areas of hair, feathers, or scales and normally pigmented patches, generally black. The colour of the animal’s skin underneath its coat is also pigmented under the dark patches and unpigmented under the white patches. Animals with this pattern may include horses, dogs, birds, cats, pigs, and cattle, as well as snakes such as the ball python. [+ SQUIRRELS. -Ed.]

A Caterpillar That Looks Like…Hello Kitty?

[THIS IS A CUTE OVERLOAD MAXIMUM REDONK ALERT! REPEAT: THIS IS A CUTE OVERLOAD MAXIMUM REDONK ALERT!]

This one was spotted on DesignTaxi.com and The Featured Creature, then tracked to a few sites with languages that Ihavenoideawhattheyaresaying. This will eventually become a Chinese Bush Brown butterfly.

(My wife says there’s also a Grumpy Cat vibe here, and I think she’s right.)
