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.

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.

Learn About Imaginaries in Your Area: One of the best things we can do for Imaginaries is to learn about those that live in our own area.

I live in New England, not far from the ocean, so the Imaginaries I’ve studied are woodland dwellers and ocean animals. Nonny, who wrote the article about hertz, lives in the Southwestern United States, and knows tons about desert creatures. And then there’s Gwyneach, the Iranigami Annalist from the U.K. If I ever want to know anything about unicorns or gryphons, I ask her, because she really knows her stuff about them.

Different Imaginaries need our support in different ways. Silkies want to return to the sea. Dragons need to be fed cheese, especially if they’re growing too fast or getting too hot. Hidebehinds should be avoided, because they’re dangerous. And squonks desire only to be left entirely alone.

If you want to truly help the Imaginaries of this world, learn what you can about the ones who live near you. The more we know about them, the better prepared we are to help preserve, protect and defend these Imaginaries when we find traces and signs of their whereabouts. - BUG, Field Agent, Iranigami
