**Abbott's Sphinx Caterpillar - that "eye" is spooky!
If you're going to be a caterpillar, you better be smart about it. In the case of the Abbott's Sphinx Moth (Sphecodina abbottii) caterpillar, they've discovered that best way to [hopefully] survive their harsher younger years is to have a big eye spot on their butts.
A gigantic, pale, wriggling baby of a Hercules Beetle (Dynastes hercules); the most famous and largest of the rhinoceros beetles. The grubs of this enormous beetle grow up to 4.5 inches (110 mm) in length and weigh up to 120 grams. They spend 1-2 YEARS in this adorable form before transforming into a pupa, molting, and then emerging as an adult (shown below).

Goliath Beetle Grub. These things can get over 10 cm (4 in) long and weigh over 115 grams (4.1 oz). They live in the soil in parts of Africa and are armed with claws at the end of their legs and a strong bite.
what if dragons are descended from mongolian death worms and just the product of growth like giant catepillars turn into moths and butterflies

"Deadlock". Photo: David Maitland / National Geographic Photographer David Maitland won the 2008 Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest with this stunning photo captured in the dead of night in a Belizean rain forst. Aptly titled Deadlock, the photo is of a rare Morelet’s tree frog refusing to be dinner for a cat-eyed snake. It's ON like Donkey Kong!!!

How long do animals live?
Charts, Animal Lifespan, Stuff, Animal Living, Life Span, Long, Infographics, Info Graphics, Design
Mankind currently has a maximum life span of around 120 years but since this chart presents averages & man's lifespan currently hovers around a worldwide average of 66-67 years that would place him just before the pearl mussel and means he is less long lived than whales & way behind the tortoise as far as average lifespan goes.
Slows & steady wins the race :-) Info graphic of the Day: “How long do animals live?” — from David McCandless’s brief look at vintage infographics.
How long do animals live? chart
Animal Lifespan Infographic
"How Long Do Animals Live?" Interesting use of illustrations and timeline. (Though some of them are wrong, the "elk" illustration is actually a moose) The concept is very simple but effective. One thing I think could have been done better design wise was maybe placing the key for the meaning behind the colors of the animals at the top and coordinating the names of the colors to be what they are. Makes you wonder about more animals.
Take a close look at those beautiful designs and patterns. They are simply spectacular which makes the Brahmaea wallichii one of the most intricately patterned moths in the world. At a glance it can be mistaken for a unique species of bird. It can be found India, China, Taiwan, Myanmar and Japan.

spiral spider web on gate. I hate spiders, but this is cool!
Gate with Spider Web. Certain species of spiders can form a web that closely conforms to the Fibonacci spiral. The astonishing thing about this instance is that the spider had ability to identify a Fibonacci spiral in the iron work of the gate so as to use its origin as the origin for its own production of a Fibonacci spiral (its web). Astonishing!

A London artist known only as Slinkachu uses mollusc shells for a series of designs dubbed “Inner City Snail: a slow-moving street art project”.
moving graffiti, or sending messages via snail mail?
Inner city snail - a slow-moving street art project: Graffiti
In 2008 the street artist Slinkachu, known for his creation of tiny tableaux on London streets, embarked on a new project for which he ‘customised' the shells of snails and released them onto London's streets. The snails as mini graffiti tags have been roaming around ever since :-)
