  1. Nice beetle, Ernst! I got a good laugh when creating the species record because Google kept redirecting me to "Catasaurus" rather than "Catasarcus". Apparently, some people shave their cats to look like a Stegosaurus hence the term "Catasaurus".

    1. That's funny. Forgot the species name but some 2 weeks ago I did a Google image search for a binomial name, which differs only a single character from some very specific female anatomy. Google assumed I was searching for the latter, was shocked to see image results. Posted 11 months ago

        1. Lol, found it again. The ear wig "Labia minor". Try searching for that in Google Image search. Posted 11 months ago
          1. Oh, eww. Gross. We have parental controls on our desktop, so I didn't expect any images to pop up. But, they sure did. I guess anatomy is acceptable. Posted 11 months ago
