I think it is very courageous of you to re-open the contentious pig/buffalo debate.
hm. true. I actually think of it as "Tree Pig" but I already had enough animals for the letter 'T'.
the dragon, with the confusion b/w real and fantastic juxtoposes really well with the crow, with the confusion b/w still and motion
Where's the Unicorn, Sally?
Thanks Anthony. I'm partial to Queen Ant and Yosemite Toad myself (but they're new).
Tom Moody made a nice edit to the volox gif here, simplifying the sequence and removing the spinning of the cell.
I still remember learning about volvoxes for the first time--seventh grade science, Mr. Hardy.
I remember seeing them under the microscope in grade 9. Can't remember the teacher's name. I thought they were very sci-fi.
It blew my mind, and still does, that organisms could live in a colony that is a perfect sphere.
It also has the best name of any life form.
It blew my mind that things could be so spherical, and move around in 3d volumetric spaces, when their world was squished together between two glass slides. Like a reverse version of Flatland.
I like 'em all.
