Friday Ark #69

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. Time permitting we will continue boardings until the Carnival of the Cats goes up on Sunday.

Do link to the Friday Ark whether you use trackbacks or not.

Visit each border and come back regularly Friday-Sunday to visit new boarders.

Extra, Extra: All Ark boarders are invited to shout out at the Friday Ark Frapper Map. (46 shouts as of 01/12)

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 95th edition will be hosted this week by Niobium. 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. The 14th edition edition is up and hosted by Bird Brained Stories.

New for the spineless: Circus of the Spineless. A monthly celebration of Insects, Arachnids, Molluscs, Crustaceans, Worms and most anything else that wiggles. The fourth edition is up at bootstrap analysis. The 5th edition is scheduled for January 31 and will be hosted by Pharyngula.

NB: Tiny is in trouble. All our best to Sissy and Family! Update: Tiny is coming home.

Update 6:31 PM CST: Traveling - no more updates until sometime Saturday.

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....

We experience summer rain, and Sasha, more so that Taffy, is affected by the weather. Perhaps humidity is the factor I am ignoring.

Aloysius presents Purrs in fact and in litterary theory

That's "hemichordates".

I've also got a post up with a firefly squid.

"Some Pig", "Terrific", "Radiant", "Humble".

I guess "Radiant" is most appropriate in this case.

The link to the current Carnival of Cats has the visible text "Niobum" but the link is for last weeks Carnival at pages turned. (I was wondering why so many people were visiting last week's funfest.)

Here is the Foundling in Ecstasy"
