I saw some pretty cool stuff today. 20 Caterpillars linked head to bum to form a chain about a metre and a bit long. At first glance I thought it was a thin snake but then I realised it was actually way cooler. Yes snakes are cool.

Next up we found two piles of white river pebbles under a tree. In between them was a pile of sticks. It's a Bower bird nest, the male Bower bird collects pretty things and lays them in front of his nests to attract lady Bower birds, then when she is suitably impressed by his pretty things she enters his bed of sticks and they get their groove on. Awesome.
