Cat-sized rats and fanged frogs. Freaky.

GOOD MORNING! Want to start your day as freaked out as I am????

Well OK then! Here's a link to an article found this morning on sync.... about new species found living in a volcano... that had not been disturbed by humans in several thousands of years... and they found all these new species of parrots and spiders and lizards and rats in there! Spiders that can drop a net on you like freakin' Spider-Man! Tiny parrots only 9 cm tall! Are they making this up?? NOPE!

Giant rats, tiny parrots found in 'lost world'

Oh my gosh I hope this link works. Very, very cool stuff. If not, then go do a search for "Papua, New Guinea", or "40 new species in volcano".

It boggles the mind.

OMG, it's the ROUSes from Princess Bride!! I wish they'd shown a picture of the fanged frog though!

As big as a house cat??????? OMG!!!! I don't want to run into one of those. I've always loved frogs, but I might have to change my mind if they showed up with fangs.

I love the name of your blog. It sounds like me in the mornings.

Your crop of apples and all of your hard work with the granola bars is fabulous. I could find at least 100 uses for apples.

I haven't read this article, but it sure sounds intriguing. There is so much about this world that we don't even could take an eternity to find it all out. WOW!! I'm so glad you found me again, thanks for stopping by. Hope all is well =)
