Walking Rocks?

Query: When I was in Death Valley earlier this year, I saw some enormous 750-pound rocks that appear to travel across the desert on their own. I remembered your article about rock tortoises, and wondered if that’s what these rocks could be?

Corn of Plenty (Part 4 of 4): A Field Guide by Dr. Midas Welby

Corns of the Air: Air-corns utilize their horns for jousting, playing tic-tac-toe, and spearing food in mid-flight. Air-corns often lurk undetected in trees, wood piles, and rain gutters. When bored, they use their horns to ring the doorbells of unsuspecting humans. When the door begins to open, the air-corn flies away.

Going On Hiatus

December 6, 2014: I am loving college, but I have to admit, I’m overwhelmed.

You Can Help!

Pine Cone Feeders

A Present For Imaginaries: When winter comes, I get concerned about providing extra shelter from the elements for Imaginaries. Recently, I read about people who build wildlife brush shelters out of branches and plants in their yards, and thought this was a great idea.

What Is Iranigami?

April 4, 2012: Iranigami is an underground society of boys and girls who preserve, protect and defend the so-called imaginary creatures of the world. The Imaginaries are real – I have seen many of them myself - but so rarely encountered that most people have ceased to believe in their existence.

Not only are the Imaginaries under increasing pressure to survive in a world of dwindling habitats and increasing pollution, now they are being hunted by greedy poachers, to be sold into the private collections of the wealthy few.

For twelve hundred years, the agents of Iranigami have worked in secret to preserve, protect and defend the lives of the Imaginaries. But we live in dangerous times, and the threat to the Imaginaries is more severe than ever before in history.

The time has come for Iranigami to step out from behind the veil of secrecy, and appeal to you, the public, to help us protect the Imaginaries.

You can help us in three ways: (1) if you see, or think you see, an Imaginary, please let us know so that we can assign a field operative to the case; (2) please help us by engaging in activities that help preserve the habitats of the Imaginaries; (3) if you have information about the trapping, kidnapping, or killing of an Imaginary, please email us at the address given under “Contact Us” immediately. Do not – I repeat, DO NOT – attempt to confront the enemies of Iranigami directly. Tell us what you know, and leave it to one of our trained agents to pursue justice for the Imaginaries.

We are the agents of Iranigami, and this is our website. It’s up to us to save the Imaginaries from extinction. I thank you for your support. – XAX, 236th Keeper of Iranigami
