I do understand that some Camels do eat meat also but that Camels basicly swallow there food whole!! Some have very sharp teeth for shreding meats..etc.

What are the pellets made from, that are being fed to the Camel? Are they like alfalfa pellets or similar product for Camel instead of Rabits or Horses and such?

Is it the inside of a camels mouth??

OH, YOU CLEVER GIRL!
I almost gave it to you when you went through the analysis and figured out it was a herbivore tooth. Congratulations!



Well,  I'll be dipped in dog doo!! It pays to pay attention in school!!! YAYYYYYYY!! Whats my Prize JIM BOB!!

It really is cute!! Did you take the picture yourself Jim Bob? Do you all have a zoo or park you can go see these guys in.

 We had a camel once years ago at our zoo and my brother got into a mess taunting the thing and was too close and it peed all over him.. I can barely remember the incident, I was very young, my mom screamed then backed up with us girls then she laughed like crazy because my brother was soaked and so mad.. It was his second time being targeted by an animal with waste products. The first was when he was teasing the chimpanzee Bill, Bill had taken all he was going to from my brother and my cousin, and he reached down grabbed a fist full of dung and nailed him with it as if he were a trained coached pitcher. The aim was pure perfection.. You would have thought he would have learned, but NO!!!!! LOL Not him!! hee hee hee!

Alas, I did not take it myself. I stole it from some copyrighted place on the internet. I got it a couple of years ago and saw it again. It was too much to resist.

My friend, Dick Butkis, you know the football guy  [?]  whom I have never met but whose name is perfect for this, are freezing off worse than a brass monkey's in the elements. It is 28 F, snowing with 1/2 inch ice on the ground and about 2/3rds of the weather models say this will persist for the next 4 or 5 days. Will I ever find Willie again in this weather?????? (My friend Willie, that is).

LOL LOL,

Yeperoos, It's been quite cold here also. Unusually so for where I am.. It has been 25 to 28 degress in the early hours although night before last was warmer but still frozen solid by morning... I gave in and bought a tiny tiny space heater, energy efficient and all. I could no longer take the cold.. My foot warmer was only keeping my toes warm.. LOL I hope your friend doesn't loose his way or freeze to DEATH!!! LOL

Science Guy- your serpentine logic never ceases to amaze me!  This Velvet Rattlesnake (not sure why they call them rattlesnakes if they have no rattles) had a hissy-fit when I disturbed his nap.  Lucky for me he was somewhat visible.

 Yes, I was thinking it could be a tree burrough, Our redwood trees produce some beautifull redwood burroughs. but the color would be different for redwood.. Do other trees produce burroughs like the Redwoods?

Karen-you're too quick.  Paper cones are beautiful works of nature- as long as you don't get too close!

It looks like a deers eye with it's beautiful lashes!

By the way what kind of wasps or bees built that nst that one is quite beautiful I have removed similar nests from my houseThey like to attach them under the overhand.. And they build them incredibly fast.. One morning I went out and saw this mud like dried substance on the overhand and thought it was a couple mud daubers or others birds building a nes, I went to work and come home and it was about six inches down.. I was fascinated.. By the same time the next day it was completed, but it was huge and hung way down I would guess it to have been18 inches wide circumferance and about 25 inches long or so.. Ver much like that one except not with the beautiful whipped look. Very nice .. what part of the country are those from??

Not an eye or lashes, but it is animal.
I always called them bald hornets- this nest was in central Alabama.  I ran across it while doing some geological work for a client.  (I could only wish I was in Alabama now- we haven't been north of the freezing mark for almost a month).

OK Bass, knowing you, you were prospecting in New Guinea or the other country on the island, perhaps even northern Australia - for gold - and came across a bower bird or Bird of Paradise or some other named avian creature. 

Again, it could just be a clean pot bellied pig.

Duh, duh, duh, ......
