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.

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.

Flying Dragon?

Query: I really thought I saw a flying dragon. It wasn’t so large that it covered the sky, but it was larger than any winged creature I’ve ever seen before in my life. It also did not fly very well, almost as if it was staggering through the sky. Is this possible?

Answer: Dragons are almost never seen these days, but given that you are located in the Rocky Mountains, it is entirely possible that a flying dragon is exactly what you saw.

A number of Imaginaries were recently turned loose just prior to a raid on a private zoo located in the American West (see Field Notes). Since that time, dragon-sightings have been on the increase as far north as Montana and as far south as New Mexico.

Thank you for reporting the sighting, and for giving us its location. Please continue to keep your eyes out for unusual activity, as our agents are now attempting to locate and recover the freed Imaginaries before they harm themselves or others.
