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.

Preventing Forest Fires

Be A Friend To Smokey: We can all help prevent forest fires. Here are some of the things that can cause a fire:

* unattended debris burning * sparks or fires from power equipment or cars * cigarette ashes * unattended campfires * fireworks * ashes from a fireplace or barbecue * playing with matches * building a fire too close to the trees *

Here are some other things to do to help:

If you’re a part of a campfire or cooking fire activity, make sure that the fire is completely doused, cool to the touch, and buried before you leave the area.

NEVER light an outside fire in an area during a fire ban. Even old ashes can start a fire.

Report any smoke or unattended fires you see, and follow all safety tips for preventing forest fires.

Please, please, PLEASE help keep our forests safe for the Imaginaries! - BEAR, Senior Field Agent, Iranigami
