This is a pure bismuth crystal. The heaviest element that is not radioactive (ok technically it is but it’s half life is like 9 orders of magnitude older than the universe so it really doesn’t count.) Probably my favourite crystal structure, even if you forget the colour. Surprisingly, bismuth is also super-not-toxic. You can actually eat the stuff and it’s often in indigestion remedies. Fascinating element, all round.
Imagine your own sunshine.
Pom-Pom Crab (Lybia Tessalatta)
The pom pom crab forms symbiotic relationships with some species of sea anemones. When threatened, the crab waves its highly toxic “pom poms” at the predator. The anemones in return get more exposure to food particles.

Whenever we do something silly, lame, or overly cutesy, we call each other a Dwebble. It started out as dweeb but… I like this lots better :P
Say it in llama. I’m not kidding. Click here.

I’ve gained some recently! So, to the new guys, welcome and thank you! And to the veterans, thanks for stickin’ around for so long XD
Well, I’ve got some great news! I’m going back to work on Monday! How exciting! I have beaten my illness and shed my Swadloon blanket! I think. I hope? However, that also means that I won’t be able to post as much as I have been… but I’ll still try to get at least one doodle or something in a day! Hope that’s alright… ‘cos I can’t do anything about it XD
Anyway, I love you all!
