They often prey on animals 2x, 3x, 4x+ their size. One of their main forms of locomotion is hopping, & in combination with their elongated shape, just heightens the adorable factor. NPS photo

The Latke Jay and the Antifa Loggerhead Shrike are currently tied for top seller on my Redbubble store, which makes me very happy for some reason.

reminder to anyone outside MB stanning our premier because he cried on camera that he preceded those tears with blatant anti-Indigenous racism, he’s a misogynist & has been fighting unions, educators and healthcare workers for years.

Strewn across a darkling plain Shocked quartz do yet witness; The buried truth does yet proclaim The cosmos' firey kiss

There is a star show Both above and below, Shining in the sky So impossibly high, And deep underground Waiting to be found. Though they share a name All Stars are not the same.

Learned recently that the USask Museum of Natural Sciences' Triceratops and Stegosaurus mounts were displayed in geology classrooms for decades before their move to the museum!

Today's is out of this world! Inspired by the new "Alien Worlds" series, we want you to write a short poem about fossils and space. This can be about fossil stars, asteroid impacts, or any topic related to palaeontology and astronomy. Far out!

The quilled artwork for this poem is by . In "Ballad of the Ichthyosaurus," special attention is given to "the eye that is plated with bone." This is called a sclerotic ring and can be clearly seen in this artwork.

The poem mentions that Ichythosaurus "…dined, as a rule, on each other," suggesting that they were cannibalistic. This was a common misconception in the Victorian era, but the fossils they thought were cannibals were actually pregnant!

May Kendall makes light of these concepts, however they must not be ignored or written off as outdated humour. This type of scientific justification for white supremacy has real-life consequences. We need to learn about scientific racism in the past so we can fight it today.
