Upon hearing that there is an animal called a "water bear" or "moss piglet", you might imagine it to be quite cute and adorable - something like a baby harp seal that lives beside forest streams. You would be wrong. Seriously, are scientists just allowed to name animals whatever the hell they want?!
When I discover a new form of highly venomous scorpion, I'm naming it the "velvet-earred snuggle bunny"

I have managed to get lost at night in Grizzly Bear country during the breeding season. We were miles off course. We finally were able to locate our position on a map when we came across a memorial to a hiker killed by a Grizzly Bear two years before. There was a beautiful sunset, though.
