Strange Little Animal

Anything that doesn't fit into the other three catagories

Postby amazincc » June 14th, 2008, 5:10 am

I just took the dogs out to go potty. It's dark out, quiet... I see this strange furry-looking animal on my neighbors steps. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Sort of spread-eagled, tail straight up, just sitting there.
I kicked the banister a few times but it wouldn't move. I have a suspicion that it's some sort of rabid flying monkey-squirrel. :|
I took pics w/out the flash - I don't want that thing to jump at me.

I finally scurried past it VERY quickly, almost strangling the dogs in my hurry to get down the stairs.
When we came back, I figured it had ample time to move, and I let the dogs off their leashes to run upstairs, but - CRAP! - at the last second I saw that it was still sitting in the same spot! And before I could call them back Mick had happily pounced on it. :sad2: :cry:



To scientists everywhere this furry little beast is known as a madidus puter palma folium.


The dogs are still slapping their knees and howling w/laughter. :nono:

without looking up the Latin, I'm guessing it is a leaf?

Wet rotting palm leaf. And it DID look positively menacing AND dangerous in the dark. AND rabid. :oops:

There WAS a tail. :shock:


It's called a stem in scientific circles.

lmao

I shouldn't laugh though. When I went to Puerto Rico last year, my dad and I were walking around at his job and we saw this THING on the wall outside. It was probably 12-16" long, and since it was dark out it looked like some kind of gigantic flying creature - bat, abnormally large insect, SOMETHING. So we're tip-toeing around it, trying to get close to get a picture without it flying at us. One of his co-workers comes by and says, with a completely straight face (to his credit!), "it's a fish tail." My, we felt like asses. But it was funny!

Here is the bat/flying insect/fish tail from hell.

That would've scared the crap out of me! :shock:




Jessica called the police last year while I was in NY, because we had a big bat in our kitchen. When they finally showed up they caught it w/my kitchen colander... it was a moth that had cast a HUGE shadow on the wall. LMAO
