(Mother Nature Network)   A clutch of snakes with tentacles growing out of their heads were hatched at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. right before the election. Somebody break out the Bible and tell me what this means   (mnn.com) divider line 81

FTFA: The ... species ... is not endangered, but researchers say it's poorly understood.

So we're back to the racist, homophobic white males again?

FTA: The creatures, referred to as Erpeton tentaculatus in the scientific community, are relatively small, growing to about 20-35 inches (50-90 centimeters) in length, and they're the only snakes with two short tentacles on their snouts, which allow the reptiles to sense vibrations from fish that swim by.

If I were swimming and a 2-3 foot snake with farking tentacles swam by me, I wouldn't think it was "relatively small."

OK, we've seen the snakies with barbules like catfish.

Many of us have seen pics of Asian lung...which are traditionally depicted with barbules like catfish.

I still insist that this means we're soon going to have a big scalybutt mofo as CEO of BMW and another having his own talk show :D...not the end of the world, just the magical cycle resetting, that's all :D

Alternatively, if you believed the old stories of why Korean dragons only have four toes and Japanese dragons only three, maybe the poor things just ran out of piggies with distance :D

/still, very very neat looking things and I hope that the zoo breeding programs do well with them
//were they not relatively new to scientific study/herpeculture I'd want a moustached snaky like this
///as it is, I will be happily spending the weekend playing Shadowrun so this is relevant to my interests

Obviously a Tzeentch cult is active in Washington. Better call the inquisition.

Snakes with tentacles are from Asia? Someone get Rick Romero on this.

I just wanted to take an opportunity to point out how cool it is that we have all these awesome names for groups of animals. Some of my favorites:

Gaggle. Shrewdness, Murder, Intrusion, Parliament... and of course... Sloth.

/And yes... I know a "clutch" is baby snakes.

I know how to get us out of this!

Klaatu! Barada! Nickolodean!

Are they gone now?

If they were to put miniature pants on their heads, would they be retarded?

FTA: Apparently, their nervous systems allow them to predict where a fish prey will end up when startled.

So if these snakes eat all the predictable fish, will that mean that we end up with edgy, unpredictable fish?
 
2012-11-09 05:56:43 AM  
But how do they taste? Recipes needed.

I love old engravings (etchings?) like that. Where is that from? Mostly because I'm curious why the two guys referenced by the L are just laying there like they're indifferent with whatever the fark that thing is raging behind them.

from Southeast Asia

Figures. Do they have anything in Asia that isn't weird, scary and wanting to destroy the world?
 
2012-11-09 06:27:27 AM  
OMG, they are so CUTE!
 
2012-11-09 06:39:39 AM  
I thought the headline said testicles, and I know for a fact it would have meant that Obama had negotiated a deal between the gays and Satan to break into our homes and convert us all into fairies by making us drink liters of their sulfuric semen over the course of months.

But it said tentacles, so it means they'll brainwash us by jamming cocks into every hole in our skull to baste our brains directly with their lewd lotion.

I am disappointed. Thought when it said tentacles that we had a mini-gorgon look happening. This, it more like HORNS than tentacles. :(

I would be too busy screaming to take an accurate measurement.

The Kitab al Azif would probably be a superior reference.
