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.

On Being Kind To Imaginaries

December 7, 2012: This is the time of year that we think about being kind to one another. Here at Iranigami, we include all the Imaginaries of the world on our list of creatures that deserve our kindness.

We preserve, protect and defend all of the imaginaries, not just the popular ones. It’s easy enough to feel sympathy for unicorns, or Yule reindeer, or even dragons. But lesser-known Imaginaries – the treesqueaks and splinter cats, the agropelters and hugags, the whirling whimpuses and hidebehinds – are often neglected, and sometimes feared and maligned.

I think it was Mahatma Gandhi who said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man.”

Iranigami is here to help ALL Imaginaries, large and small the dangerous ones and the harmless ones, those whose populations are increasing and those who are critically endangered, creatures famed and creatures unknown.

We thank you for your continued kindness to the Imaginary creatures of the world. Together, we can make the world a better place, not only for the Imaginaries, but for all of us. - XAX, 236th Keeper of Iranigami
