seems like most desert bridges and culverts always have graffiti. doesn't matter how far out you think you are, an artist was there too. take a look sometime. surveyed a lot of bridges for bats n birds, but this is the first octopus i've worked with.
It's Mollusk Monday! Did you know: a natural pearl begins its life inside an oyster's shell when an intruder, such as a grain of sand or bit of floating food, slips in between one of the two shells of the oyster. In order to protect itself from irritation, the oyster will quickly begin covering the uninvited visitor with layers of nacre — the mineral substance that fashions the mollusk's shells. Layer upon layer of nacre, also known as mother-of-pearl, coat the grain of sand until the iridescent gem is formed.
