Hermaphrodites and MORE!!!

My vacation was excellent, and there are many pictures to share. Tonight I'm too tired, so I'm giving you a slightly blurry picture of the hermaphrodite that I rescued during a six-hour hike yesterday. I probably should have set him/her down on something brown so that the picture would have shown up better.

Not having ever encountered a banana slug before, my friend Ru emailed me this link that I thought was rather amusing... particularly the paragraph about the sexual practices of banana slugs.

Today's vocabulary word: apophallation

OUCH! I'll bet they don't do THAT again!

Ah, the sheer magic of the world wide web. All this information just yearning to be disseminated.

I will NEVER forget THAT would be a good one for a kid's spelling bee...can you imagine?

"Country of origin and definition please?"

But I thought the 12 hours of varied positions sounded pretty good...right up until the apophallation.

And until now.....I thought the worst part about being a slug was making sure the bartender didn't salt the rim of your margarita.

Great post:)
