First scientifically authentic (albeit fabricated) paper on #wookiee genetics. #chewbaccaFTW

In which we compare the common Wookiee with a newly discovered cave dwelling (pseudo albino) Wookiee species, and note a number of interesting gene expression differences.

“Photographer and conservationist Bryant Austin captures some truly breathtaking shots of whales as a reminder of their beauty and existence in the vast oceans. The photographer manages to get full body shots of them, a feat that so few are able to achieve with such high quality, while revealing remarkable details of these aquatic mammoths. Browsing through his collection, one feels like they can actually reach out and touch the giant creatures, feeling the texture of their skin while examining the breadth of their bodies.”

This lizard would totally win a “look like a dragon” contest.

Or at least a very striking looking Armadillo Girdled Lizard (Cordylus cataphractus).

Who needs Pokemon cards, when you can get free CEPHALOPODA cards!

And these are just 10 of close to 500 different free biodiversity cards on the website, which are also playable as a game!

phylocephalopoda

If you want to print them out, go to Phylogame.org/cephalopoda, and click “print” (on the left sidebar). Then click on page “2″ (near the top) and click “print” again. If you want to include card backs with these printouts, then download the card back (the link is on the left sidebar), flip your card printouts and print the back on the other side.

Even the domestic cat (Felis silvestris catus) can be Lord of the Savannah!

(Note that even though these images are digitally manipulated, they’re still awesome)
