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.

Protect Your Home From Dragons

Dragon-Proofing Tips: With hungry dragons on the loose in northern Colorado, it’s a good time to review a few safety tips to dragon-proof your home.

Don’t leave food out for birds, squirrels, cats, or other animals, including Imaginaries, that might attract a dragon. Leaving out a small amount of water is okay, but place the water source away from the house if possible.

Don’t put your trash out until the morning of pick-up. Dragons are like bears, they’ll eat anything.

Keep your pets inside at night, and lock up any livestock you have in a secure pen. Dragons like dogs and cats as well as they like chickens, pigs, ducks, and goats.

Have your hose hooked up and accessible in case a dragon sets anything around your house on fire. Move flammable materials, such as a woodpile, away from the sides of your home, and trim overhanging branches that could drop embers onto your roof.

Be careful about taking candy, gum, cookies, or any other sweets outside. Don’t leave them lying around. Dragons love sweets.

Finally remember, always remember, if you think there is a dragon in your neighborhood, always carry a pocketful of string cheese. You can never be too careful. - YARROW, an Iranigami fan
