Expiscor (22 July 2013)

Expiscor is back! Here are some discoveries from the past week. I hope you enjoy!

  • Over on unpopular science, a nice write-up on peacock spiders. Yeah, these little critters are just awesome.
  • I know you are ready for it… a spider photo! This one, an amazing photo of a trapdoor spider by Matt Bertone (thanks Matt, for permission to post here!)

  • And the tweet of the week goes to Lab & Field – commentary on being a post-doc and multitasking!

  • In honour of the completion of this year’s tour de France, here are some amusing quotes from one of the more colourful riders, Jens Voigt. e.g., Having things organized is for small-minded people. Genius controls chaos
  • And to finish, I agree with Bug Girl: this is one of the nerdiest Entomology videos out there. Wow.

One thought on “Expiscor (22 July 2013)

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    tell someone!
