represent: a group exhibition

spaghetti-hiccup  asked:

I was wondering what you thought wimpod was based on? I personally think it's based on a horseshoe crab. What do you think?

I don’t think horseshoe crab personally

Exhibit A: Horseshoe Crab

Exhibit B: Wimpod

Note that the HS crab only has two dorsal segments, no outwards antennae, and a single non branched tail. 

The following are the candidates that I think are more likely. 

Exhibit C: The Silverfish 

Note the antennae, the colour, the multiple pronged tail, and multiple body segments. They are also known to be very skittish and will run away from light and when uncovered (WITH GREAT SPEED, I’ve seen one before) - similar to the described behavior of wimpod. The order that silverfish belongs to has remained pretty much unchanged since the dawn of the insects in the Devonian period 420-360 million years ago, and obviously since insects, like all animals, had their origins from water, this could represent the water typing. 

Exhibit D: The Trilobite

Extinct group of marine arthropods. In life they would have had antennae. Note the crescent head shield, the multiple body segments, and the fact that some had branched tails. Marine - good for water typing. 

Exhibit E: The Tadpole Shrimp

An ancient freshwater crustacean (that’s still alive today). Notice the large crescent head piece, multiple body segments, branched tail and antennae. (Again freshwater - good for water typing)

And last but not definitely not least…

Exhibit F: The Wharf Roach

It’s an isopod (so extra points for the name) has 4 tail branches. Also, note the body segments, and the antennae. It lives on rocky coasts and in harbours, just above the high water mark - so again, good for water typing. Plus, if you lift a rock with any underneath, they sure do scatter away ASAP


Monday Morning: First day of school (Part 4-final)

Teacher: “Good morning class and welcome to the first day of school! Hope you had a good rest, because now it’s time to work! I’ll be your teacher this year, I’m Mr. Darien Gibs but you can call me Darien”.

Elena: “He’s… pretty…”

Emilia: “Elena!!! Shhh he’s going to hear you”.

Elena: “Well… alright then”.

Emilia: “Hahaahah”.

Elena: “Ahahaha”.

Mr. Darien: “Would you two like to share something with the class?”

Emilia: “No teacher, we’re okay”.

Mr. Darien: “Alright, who would like to prepare the chart? Today we’re going to start with a fun and interesting topic”.

Pierre: “Me me me me me! Me Mr. Gibs! Me!”

Mr. Darien: “Uhhhmmmm… Sandy, would you like to help with the chart?”

Sandy: “Of course teacher”.

Mr. Darien: “I see you Pierre, please … do me a favor, would you be so kind to go and ask the next door’s teacher for some chalks… we’re in need of some green ones”.

Pierre: “Okay!”

Mr. Darien: “As I was saying … Dinosaurs… they first appeared during the Triassic period, 231.4 million years ago, and were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years, from the beginning of the Jurassic until the end of the Cretaceous. Although the word dinosaur means “terrible lizard”, the name is somewhat misleading, as dinosaurs are not lizards. Instead, they represent a separate group of reptiles that, like many extinct forms, did not exhibit characteristics traditionally seen as reptilian….”

… . .

Emilia: “Yeah tots, we should totally go out together some time!”

Elena: “Hahaha”.

Sandy: “Hahah”.

Elena: “Can we invite Darien too?”

Emilia: “Elenaaa haha”.

Sandy: “Hahaha”.

Nelson: “And then they went like… ARRRRGGGHHHHHHHH!! *stomp stomp stomp*”

Pierre: “Are you sureeeee??? No waaay!”
