Awesome sk8eycat!

I have a birds group too!

So many groups -- so little time!

Felaine is rereading one of Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Darkover" novels. I seem to do this almost every year when the weather gets hot...the stories can sometimes be depressing, but in July and August I like reading about a planet where "summer" is the season when it "only" snows at night.

Wildlife: Rabbithorns (antlered rabbits), and "Banshee Birds" (impossibly large flightless, sightless predatory birds. Sort of like Rick Warren.)

Here's a picture of a new reef fish found - read about the discovery in my discussion.

Steph, I wanted to reword my comment and got distracted and forgot to come back to it. Dallas' comment aroused my curiosity and I looked up the word "amelanosis" and that took me on a nice long road of discovery. I don't have time now to redo it, but thanks for asking. I shall be back with what I want to say. 

In the meantime, thanks Dallas for this information.

Anyone have any wildlife stories to share?
