we've talked before about strange creatures from the deepest depths of the ocean and how new species are being discovered everyday (usually in the insect world and usually the newbies are almost too tiny to see...!) but it's happening. and it gives a certain hope or validity to those of us who hold with the idea that there are things out there that we have yet to see, yet to capture. (i don't use this arguement very much myself, i just WANT to believe.)
its amazing what we don't know.
so its funny to me how much we don't know about what we DO know...
the other day i found the picture below posted on yahoo.
now, i had thought that i was fairy well-versed regarding all the creatures in the animal kingdom...
but i have never seen or heard of this thing before!
i mean, if i saw this thing lumbering through the woods or down a path toward me, i would definitely think that it was some kinda cryptid!
apparently, it is a malayan pangolin and it's being busted for smuggling in this picture.
and, in lieu of a "random picture of the week", here's what i'd like to call
"classic cover corner"!
"five for friday"
