Oregon is so goddamn pretty, so I stole this dude out of the gallery for a short walk. 

The Giant Pacific Rockbeast is native to Pacific Northwest coastal regions, although smaller variants have made it further south.

Rockbeasts burrow into naturally formed rock crevices when they are little, and dissolve the rock from inside as they grow. They are generally able to find a rock that will accommodate their predicted adult size. The ones that do not will usually die when they eventually dissolve the last of the available rock, and expose themselves to external elements. This rockbeast is lucky to have found a rock that fits him so snugly.

While they primarily prefer to stay near water, they often venture out to forested areas on cold and rainy days. They thrive on a diet of small bugs.

(If you’d like to adopt this dude, he is still available as part of the Dubious Beasts:Symbiosis show, at Archimedes Gallery)

Reblogging some old stuff(on queue) because I’m in the desert building a haunted house! :) This dude is from my May show with Leslie. He’s still available!

Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)

The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.

If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

Why is this so f*cking terrifying?

Some of the Fall garden seedlings are starting to emerge. Now, if the weather will only cooperate.
