Friday Ark #60

Friday Ark Template

We'll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and....?

We will add your post to the list if you do one of the following:

  • Leave a comment or trackback to this post,
  • Use the Carnival Submission Form,
  • Email Modulator or
  • Our extensive staff finds it during our weekly search of the web
Of course, if our staff goes on strike then we will link only those posts someone tells us about.

Visit each border and come back regularly Friday-Sunday to visit new boarders. And do link to the Friday Ark whether you use trackbacks or not.

New: All Ark boarders are invited to shout out at the Friday Ark Frapper Map.

Dog folks: remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Dogs hosted by Mickey's Musings.

Cat folks:
remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Cats which goes up every Sunday and the 86th edition will be hosted this week by Curiouser and Curiouser. There are more weekly cats at eatstuff's Weekend Cat Blogging which has many participants who may not be familiar to Ark or Carnival participants.

Bird folks: I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers is published every 2 weeks. Send your links for the 10th edition to Mike. The 10th edition is up and hosted by Thomasburg Walks.

New for the spineless: Circus of the Spineless. A monthly celebration of Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Worms and most anything else that wiggles. The second edition is up at Snails Tales.

Arkive editions of the Friday Ark.

Update: We wish Clare of eatstuff a speedy recovery from her cat bites.

For other current carnivals check out The Conservative Cat's Carnival Page and The TTLB Uber Carnival

Note for Haloscan Users: Haloscan started (the end of July) rejecting trackbacks if they were submitted "too rapidly" by the same host. I don't know what the timer is but it is long enough so that it was very difficult to ping everyone that is using Haloscan for trackbacks. I'm sure that they are doing this to try to hold back the tide of trackback spam but it makes the service pretty useless for carnival type posts. Perhaps you can contact them and urge some different solution. Update: Typepad appears to be doing the same thing. Everytime I update the Ark it appears the timers are reset and the long list of MT autogenerated pings fail. Yecchhhh....

Cat blogging at Prophet or Madman ...

Today you can see the difference between Milo and Otis and then catch them in cute little napping poses.

Friday Bug Blogging ...

(How appropriate that a blog called Prophet or Madman would show a praying mantis?)

I finally got my post up this morning. Here's Willie in nap-mode. Lucky kitty.

Hmmm.... my bug blog post made it, but not my earlier cat blogging post. And although I got two "success" messages from Haloscan, my cat blog trackbacks didn't show up either.

So ... I'd better point out my cat pictures again. :)

Here is the difference between Milo and Otis, and a couple of cute napping shots.

Lyle is ready for the next fun-filled round of whack-a-mole

Semi OT: Steve, I don't know what's going on, but my trackbacks through Haloscan to the Ark don't seem to be getting through, even when I get a "success" report.

Here are a great set of pictures of Monarch Flycatchers, (Monarchidae), combined with a great essay about the speciation of these birds across the islands of the South Pacific Ocean and back again!

Birds in the News is finally available! It features a lovely picture of the Pied Monarch Flycatcher, Myiagra freycineti, a native of the South Pacific Islands. This bird is one that provided new data about speciation patterns that helped to shake up the world of evolutionary biologists and biogeographers.

Incidentally, my previous link was rejected as spam. I also have another story about birds in science that you might like to link to. This story tells how the monarch flycatchers (Monarchidae) reveal that evolution and speciation on the islands of the south pacific are not a one-way street! Two really great pictures of two species of these birds are included, and you can get the wallpaper size of these pictures for your desktop by clicking on the images!

How about some American chameleons aka anoles? I'm not sure if the photos are appearing clearly enough, though: Trackback URL:
