Weird Nature Vol 2

Our Fast & Loose Weird Nature Series is coming at you this week with the second of its kind in volume two. Things get weirder and stranger by the day as Doug takes to his Moleskin in a bid to bring some oddballs from the world we live straight to a phone or screen near you. The descriptions of the specimens have been taken from our Mr Four Fingers Instagram account – I love the language Doug uses to describe them, and supported by fast and loose style, it really adds a lot of character.

MAGGOT – LARVA OF BLUE BOTTLE FLY

Death stare, ‘mon then big yin, under the scrutinizing gaze of a microscope. Looks like a juvenile Tusken Raider

SAIGA ANTELOPE

This animal looks like some some crazy star wars creature in a jazz band . Unfortunately this java critically endangered antelope foubd only in Russia and Kazakhstan. It’s oversized, flexible nose structure helps filter out dust kicked up by herd and heats up cold winter air before it enters the lungs.

SATANIC LEAF-TAILED GECKO

Devils in the detail. This nocturnal reptile can be found only in Madagascar with a leaf like tail which it can voluntarily discard to trick predators
