Odd New Creatures

As I was preparing some teaching information I came across the book at right with the two fish and Jesus and Darwin insided. Note the lower fish with leg buds.

A photo in our local newspaper led me to the article, More Than 100 New Species Discovered In Hawaiian Islands along with this curious photo of a yet-to be named crab.

Today's lesson is the classification of organisms into those familiar high school categories like kingdom, phylum, order.

I find it fascinating each time I read of something newly discovered in our world and I am eager to await yet new adventures around every corner.
