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.

Inter-Agency Cooperation

June 9, 2014: The news that a collector of exotic, endangered and Imaginary animals has been stopped is a small victory for those of us who work to preserve, protect and defend the Imaginaries of our world.

Without inter-agency cooperation, this individual may never have been identified. As Imaginary animals have no legal standing in our world, Iranigami relies upon those laws designed to protect exotics and endangered species to help us in our work. Conversely, those who seek to limit the trade in exotics and endangered species often turn to Iranigami for information and assistance.

Why do they need us? Because you, our supporters, give us a vast network of observant eyes and ears everywhere, watching out for evidence of animal abuse on a grassroots level.

We celebrate today that one individual has been stopped, but our work is far from over. We continue to be concerned for the safety and well-being of the Imaginaries that the collector released into the wild shortly before his arrest. And always, for every collector of Imaginaries apprehended, there are a hundred Bogs and Murks (poachers and smugglers) who are still out there, threatening the well-being of Imaginaries everywhere. - XAX, 236th Keeper of Iranigami
