Just Don't Say They're Spineless


I don't know what it is, but this trip to DC, I can't stop myself from going to every invertebrate zoo and exhibit--they're loose like a jellyfish!




Don't these look like evil geniuses?
Or genuses?




This is a cuttlefish. It has such good eyesight that it can see you as well as you see it.










I went to the butterfly house at the Smithsonian, where they feed butterflies rotten fruit. You do not want to mess their fruit; the butterflies will kill you.


I saw some other things (art, monuments, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of fireworks) but the invertebrates win this trip! Hurrah for invertebrates! Let's celebrate by not stepping on them today... too often.

I celebrated by eating them; snails taste like peppermint gum, no joke.
