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.

Let Our Agents Do The Work of Agents

July 18, 2012: Several non-agents have contacted me recently, asking if they can join in the search-and-rescue work performed by the agents of Iranigami. This work includes everything from relocation of Imaginaries from inhospitable environments, to recovering Imaginaries from the hands of poachers and smugglers involved in the illegal trade of rare animals.

These enemies of Iranigami are dangerous people, and we want no harm to come to you. So thank you for your offer of help, but if you should sight an Imaginary, please do NOT attempt a rescue on your own. Instead, contact us, and we will send trained agents immediately.

The greatest immediate threat to the Imaginaries lies in the careless destruction of their habitats. This is the area in which you, the non-agents, can help us the most, by identifying any Imaginaries who live in your region, and helping us to preserve the environments in which they live.

We encourage you to study the You Can Help portion of this website, especially the series of articles Agent Bug is going to write over the next few months. Everything we do to help preserve the environment helps the Imaginaries, directly or indirectly, and your actions are all appreciated.

We also encourage you to continue the work of reporting any sightings of Imaginaries to us, so that our archivists can maintain current migration and habitat information on the Imaginaries.

Your highly valued work in these areas frees up our trained agents to pursue more specialized activities such as our search-and rescue missions.

And for this, we thank you.

-Xax, 236th Keeper of Iranigami
