Hawaiian Bobtail Squid | Euprymna scolopes

"The sepiolid is relatively short-lived, just 3-10 months from egg to its semelparous death. Eggs are 2.0 mm in diameter and laid on the undersides of coral ledges in shallow water. Paralarvae grow very fast; Hanlon et al. (1997) found E. scolopes to breed and lay eggs in the laboratory just 2 months after hatching from the egg. Juveniles are frequently found with adults in shallow water. Adults are sometimes trawled offshore in mid-water in depths to 138 fathoms."  x

March 6th, 2015 - Daily Goat #65: Indonesia

The summer came in carrying spring in its mouth
Held it up for everyone to see
This is the time when all our plans and schemes
Melt down into listless anarchy
Historically, anyway, that’s been the case
But this year there’s a new pink sheen on your face

Like the color of a secret flower
That grows tall and moist and incorruptible
In Indonesia
Indonesia

The season tunneled forward, like a moth through grain
Its hunger was an all-consuming, mindless thing
And you slept for twelve to fourteen hours at a stretch
I wondered what the weather in the fall was gonna bring
And then you said you’d dreamt of cowboys that were zombies in disguise
Well, I knew fall was never coming, it was written on your eyes

Like a mist that hangs there in the air
On the mountainside where rare and nameless flowers grow
In Indonesia
Indonesia

White-lipped Island Pitviper - Trimeresurus albolabris insularis 

Trimeresurus albolabris insularis (Viperidae), best known as White-lipped Island Pitviper, is a species distributed mostly throughout the Lesser Sunda Islands of Indonesia (Adonara, Alor, Bali, Flores, Komodo, Lombok, Padar, Rinca, Romang, Roti, Sumba, Sumbawa, Timor, Wetar, Java), and Timor-Leste.

It is a medium-sized, long, thin arboreal, pitviper with triangular head, distinct from neck; adults usually are 40-60 cm long (max. 100 cm). In this subspecies, the lip is not sharply demarcated from the rest of the head.

These are venomous pit vipers, mainly nocturnal, and not aggressive except when disturbed. Venom of this viper is mainly hemotoxic. Bites are common, but there are few reported human deaths.
