The festive season has been and gone and now it’s time to take down the decorations and get on with some science! I hope everyone had a good time, 2011 was certainly a year to remember but man have I got plans for number 12! What did everyone do for New Year’s Eve? I went to a fancy dress party in my best Hoff costume, but it seems I wasn’t the only one to have that idea. My crab homies have finally decided to come out of their shells and introduce themselves to the world, and boy do they love Baywatch.
You might think that a crustacean with a chest wig is pretty wacky, but you ain’t seen nothing yet. Check out this list of the craziest critters of 2011 including the terrifying zombie ants which my buddies at BioMed Central risked their brains to warn the world about! In all seriousness though I’m kinda disappointed not to feature in that list myself. A turtle that can write – and do science – surely that’s wackier than a one eyed shark!
So I mentioned in my last post that I was interviewed by AnimalGarden for a Panton Discussion. If you don’t know what a Panton Discussion is then check out December’s entry. Before Christmas there was only a sneak peak, but now you can see the full video and learn about the turtley awesome things that I do. Here’s a big shout to Peter and the AnimalGarden crew for giving me my big break. Finally the recognition I deserve!
Inspired by my new celebrity status I’m almost ready to grace the world with my first ever YouTube video on my brand new channel. There’s a hint in my interview as to what’s coming – see if you can guess what it is.
Right I’m off to chat to my agent and fraternize with the stars, peace out!
