Today, on #TheMisplacedMenagerie -

We report the exotic (for #India) apple #snail, #Pomacea diffusa, also known as the spike topped apple snail, from the #Mumbai region, as part of our ongoing studies on #urbanwildlife, and the #ecology of introduced species, in #India, Mumbai.
The study was officially published in the 'ELA Journal of Forestry and Wildlife' - a peer reviewed #science journal, which is also the official journal of the #Maharashtra State #Forest Department.

Spiked Topped Apple Snails in #Mumbai (and other parts of #India) are the direct result of the #aquarium trade - either as accidental, or deliberate releases from home aquaria.

Time for another #TetZoocryptomegathread, in which we examine the backstory to a photo or film said to depict a cryptid, or monster. This time, we’re not looking at a photo claimed to be of a live animal BUT at photos which depict a very dead one: a rotted carcass, in fact…
I am of course talking about the ZUIYO-MARU CARCASS: the large, decomposed body of a sea creature, ‘captured’ by accident in the nets of the Japanese fishing vessel the Zuiyo-maru on April 25th 1977 while they were about 48km off the east coast of Christchurch, New Zealand…
The name ‘Zuiyo-maru’ has been written in several ways in the literature (as ‘Zuiyomaru’ or ‘Zuiyo Maru’, for example). I’m here going to follow the style used in the 1978 report on the carcass (Zuiyo-maru). And the Zuiyo-maru carcass will be called the ZMC from hereon!

Last week in #zoology my class went over #amphibians & I was struggling to design a remote lab that they could enjoy & do easily.

Wound up going with a frog call analysis activity using #RavenLite and am ☺️happy☺️ to see how well they did at identifying the 🐸 spp calling!
Also, this comment about a student's lab assignment #frog bombing her partner's #Zoom call 😂 Image
Y'all....I am currently grading these lab assessments and the comments are making my day. #amphibians for the win! Image

Grading #zoology student lab worksheets. They had to search through digital museum collections for images of #Echinoderms & draw representatives of major clades.

Really enjoying some of this artwork in the age of #COVID19 & #onlinelearning Image
Seriously, some of these are great! Image
Others...maybe not so much haha Image

The #zoology #bioblitz continues! It’s going well!

In a student email this morning: “being a psychology major this is my first bio blitz...this has to be the most fun I have had all semester...I am terrible at catching the specimens it has been a really great experience.”
And earlier in the week a team came by my office:

“We’re looking for #mollusks but aren’t sure where to find them.” 😂

I sent them to flip logs for slugs and look in ditches and ponds for snails.
The teams have 1 more day to add to their #animal #biodiversity collections (photos, no actual specimens collected).

#FutureIsBigger, you never know what will happen. No education is useless. Listen to your parents, they may not be wrong. Future is worth exploring. God got your back even when you think you got nothing.

Azeez came out with 9 As in his #SSCE and he wanted to be a Doctor. Smart, intelligent and well bred from a humble home. However this hope was truncated at the University of Ibadan, he was offered #Zoology.

"Just start with that", said the father.

Azeez set another target for himself, "I must jam this JAMB again and this time, I will not show mercy", he said as he promised his father that he must be a Doctor.

He believed himself, he knew he could do it.

He walked into JAMB hall the following year, very confident like
