Alrighty, my turn!
  • I am a member of the Mollusca Phylum
  • My ink was used in the color 'Sepia'

Oh I know! It's a cuttle fish! I remember seeing this video a year ago! :D
It's amazing how they can manipulate the colours of their surroundings despite their limited colour vision range :?

Alright, here's a reptile.

I am the last of my subspecies but NOT the last of my kind
I am capable of giving children a ride on my back
I am vegetarian and a giant. I can swim short distances but need to rush out ASAP should I drift too far. Despite my weight, I can speed walk in a way that people would think I'm actually running.
I am in my late 90s but my kind can live for over 140 years
Attempts have been made to save my subspecies but all future generations of mine will be mixed with other subspecies of my kind from different islands
I am very often called "Lonesome" by researchers even though I live with two females and will be integrated with more of my kind from other neighbour islands in the future.

- My species are one of the most diverse of all animals
- I have opening in both ends of my body
- There will be enhabitents of my species in almost every ecosystem as well as the highest to the lowest elevations.
- My species reprecent most of all the living creatures on the ocean bottom
- I am slender and small, although some of my more annoying family members can be quite big
- My species normally have either three or six lips and - Specially my canivour family have teeth, though others have a sharp stylet, that in some of my family is hollow and can be used to suck out liquids from my food.
- I have no stomach, but I produce enzymes to break down my food

What kind of being am I/my species?

We had terrible trouble many year's back with Nematodes as they were killing all the worm's and slug's. The giant Tiger slug is now a rarety here in Argyll.

Anyhoo. One of my absolute faverite creatures.



I come from Indonesia,
I am an omnivore and live in the forrest.
I have skin like a hippo, legs like a deer and a face like a pig.
My indoneasian name means "pig-deer"
Scientist's still debate which group I belong to.
I am famous because my Cainine teeth grow out through the top of my head !!!

- I am also the smallest of my species.
- I live a solitary life and am nocturnal.
- I am also very unsociable, but will defend myself fiercely if cornered.

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

Yes, it's beautifull and quite rare now I believe. It only lives in a few countries at South Africa. I don't look on Google when I'm guessing but I will go and have a look now as it's a while since I read up in them.

Lucas, I think the black-footed cat numbers are dwindling down quite fast and only a handful are in captivity. Though, according to Wikipedia, scientists have been able to reproduce unrelated black-footed kittens via IVF in both a domestic cat (as a surrogate) and in a captive female. That was also pretty recent too, so I suppose the outlook is a little bit better.
