Today on the Twitters…

You might want to look in on the official University of Minnesota Morris twitter account today, where Rob Denton is describing a day in the life of a new biology professor and discussing his weirdly sexual salamanders. Also a good idea: check out the Denton Lab instagram account to see pretty pictures of charismatic animals. I’m not talking about his students, although they are lovely, but all the cuddly slimy vertebrates.

There’s also a PZ Myers instagram account, but it’s just full of spiders. Somehow, people aren’t very appreciative of anything that can be described as “full of spiders”. It’s an injustice.

    As much as I love my field of research, there certainly are times when I wish I had stuck to my childhood dream of being a herpetologist. Those salamanders do look adorable.
