On average, eastern cottontails will have 3-4 litters a year, with 3-8 offspring per litter. While they generally start breeding at one year, some are ready as early as 2-3 months old. In just 5 years a single pair of eastern cottontails can have 350,000 descendants!

Tunicates belong to phylum Urochordata, which is closely related to phylum Chordata - which includes all of the vertebrates! That means these little goo balls are more closely related to vertebrates, like us, than they are to most other invertebrates.

Mason bees bellyflop onto flowers to collect pollen, which gets all over their little bodies. When visiting flowers this brings their pollination percentage up to 95%, destroying the honeybees who have a dismal 5% pollination percentage.

How stunning is this New England aster (Aster novae-angliae)? These are one of my favorite wildflowers.

I and my colleagues will be at Rose City Comic Con September 23! We are giving a panel talk about super hero powers and how they match their animal/plant analogs! If you're in the area come say hello. :)
