This is so unbelievably lame I have to share to get the word out. If you see someone trying to sell this or displaying it in their collection let me know. This happened to good friends of mine πŸ‘‰ @pandorasboxmilford “See this? This is a six limbed pig that was delivered yesterday and stolen yesterday from the mail room hallway outside our shop. A police report has been filed and we aren’t happy. So yeah if anyone around here tries to sell this, please contact the Milford police and/or us with their info. Thanks!”

I’m rather disturbed to read about what this turtle farm does with their turtles and the mass quantities shipped to China to do so, but happy to hear this little two-headed snapping turtle may be spared the same horrid fate.

An Arkansas biologist calls a newborn two-headed snapping turtle rare, but he says turtle mutations are becoming more common. According to Jonesboro Sun, a North East Arkansas Turtle Farm employee discovered the common snapper last week in a group of 30,000 that are being shipped to China. NEA specializes in the production of several species of turtlesβ€”common snapper turtles, spiny soft shell turtlesβ€”that are native to the area. They are typically sold for research or education, but the Arkansas farm would like to find a home for the baby two-headed turtle, which will likely sell to a collector. Memphis Zoo reptiles and amphibians curator Steve Reichling says these mutations usually occur when twins don’t fully separate during embryogenesis. “We do see them from time to time. It’s something that happens rarely,” he said. Although, Reichling says he does not have any data that could confirm or deny the increase in these mutations. NEA farm owner Marcus Balch told the Sun the turtle is exceptional and one of a kind, despite it’s not the first with an abnormality. A hatchling with one neck and two heads was found at NEA, but it died at birth. Additionally, other turtles have been born with too many legs or no tails.

Bilum Bag with Animal Bones - This bag is characteristic of string bags, called bilum bags, commonly found in Papua New Guinea. These bags are used by both men and women and are made in many different sizes. The purposes for the bags range from carrying babies and belongings to catching fish. Some bags have ceremonial significance and may symbolize a person in mourning or a person who is coming of age. How a bag is constructed depends on its purpose, and different looping techniques can indicate the intended use of a bag. This particular bilum bag also has pig bones attached to the outside and dried plant materials inside. We believe the bag may have been purchased in the 1980s.

The purpose of this particular bag is currently a mystery. A tag identifies it as a medicine bag used in curing ceremonies. Other scholars believe that it may have been used as “hunting magic,” and brought on hunts to bring the hunter good luck. Pigs are a valuable source of food as well as a source of prestige, which is why attaching pig bones to a bilum may be associated with magical power. The size and shape of the loops look similar to the looping technique called “naamba men,” a decorative technique from the Central Highlands. Bags made with this type of looping are generally used to carry personal belongings. For several reasons, our bag was probably not used to carry personal belongings: it is filled with plant material that falls out of the loops when the bag is moved, it is sewn shut, and there are cumbersome bones all around the outside. To help solve this mystery, Professor Janet Keller, Curator of the Spurlock’s Oceanic exhibit, plans on doing further research while on sabbatical in Papua New Guinea next year.

BONELUST PERSONAL COLLECTION: New addition to my skull collection. The slate black Townsend mole (Scapanus townsendii), is the largest mole species in North America, at a total length of 8 to 9 inches.

It is found in open lowland and wooded areas with moist soils along the Pacific coast from southwestern British Columbia to northwestern California. This animal’s total range in Canada is estimated to be 20 kmΒ² (7.7 sq mi). Townsend’s mole is classified as Least Concern by the IUCN, however in Canada it is considered an endangered species.

Its front paws are broad and spade-shaped, specialized for digging; the rear paws are smaller. It has 44 teeth. Its ears are not visible and it has small eyes. It is similar in appearance to the smaller coast mole. This mole spends most of its time underground, foraging in shallow burrows for earthworms, small invertebrates and plant material. It is active year round.

This animal is mainly solitary except during mating in late winter. The female has a litter of two to four young in a deep underground burrow. More - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scapanus_townsendii#cite_note-SAR-3
