A few interesting things I’ve come across recently:
Via the Houston Museum of Natural Science, an interesting article on the dietary habits of postman butterflies. The short answer: They eat pollen, in addition to nectar, which has some intriguing implications.
Vanished, a new alternate reality game based at the Smithsonian and a number of affiliate museums around the country. It looks massively cool—although it’s only for kids.
Via BoingBoing, a speech by National Geographic photographer Mark Moffett about his adventures photographing the world’s most poisonous frog. It involves alcohol, open sores, and a male stripper.
