I was stung by a very large wasp yesterday.  The red spot is still spreading, 24 hours later.  I doesn’t exactly tickle either.

The Mata Mata Turtle

Found mostly in South America. Its shell resembles bark, and its head resembles fallen leaves, making it an expernt at camouflage. It is also an expert at looking like my nightmares.

That’s not a turtle, it is an elder dragon. Respect it or all will suffer.

I don’t know where the fucking eyes are

They also have a vacuum built into their skulls.  This turtle is, essentially, Charybdis.

Menace or merely misunderstood? Despite appearances, the monkeyface-eel isn’t a true eel—and it definitely doesn’t act like one. This reclusive fish seldom travels more than 15 feet from its home, and mostly eats algae.Learn more(Photo: Charlene Boarts)

I’ve always liked these, just because they’re so different looking.  I actually think they’re kinda cute.
