Post Mythwood Museum - Fish
Arrr! Here be the fishies, matey!

File comment: While barbel steeds have many of the same features as carp, they're a bit less exciting to my mind. For example, both have whiskers, wot? Yet the barbel steed's are just a hair shorter... It's rather like a fan doing an imitation of his or her favorite actor, or something to that effect.

File comment: This round little fish may look like a mild-mannered goby at first... but it's actually quite aggressive. The freshwater goby is known for its tendancy to try to eat anything that will fit in its mouth... Rather shocking, really. I'm quite glad this little piggy's mouth is nowhere near owl-sized, eh wot?

File comment: ...Hoo, tell me, have you ever had occasion to see the teeth of a carp? They're positioned far back in the mouth and can bite through seashells! I daresay you shouldn't go sticking your finger into a carp's mouth, wot? That is a mighty chomp!

File comment: ...ah, hoo, the seabass, in some parts of the world, these fish have a different name as juveniles. They change names once they mature, eh wot? What's more, these names can differ from region to region... It's almost as if the sea bass is some sort of secret agent, wot?

File comment: Horse mackerel are not at all related to horses... Rather obvious, I should think... It's quite a strange name, given how many fish are related to this one, like yellow tail, and amberjack.

File comment: Most fishermen think of dace as a bit of a nuisance because they interfere with catching more desired fish. This fish cares not... During spawning season, the dace dons a bright orange stripe across it's belly! Even nuisance fish get the urge to dress up and strut a bit, eh wot?

File comment: By the by... Just so you know, eyes on a dab are positioned on the right, but on the left on a flounder. When young, these fish are shaped like ordinary fish, but... As they mature, they start becoming flatter in preparation for adulthood! What professionalism! You can tell this is a very responsible fish, wot?

File comment: As its flashy coloration suggests, the zebra turkeyfish is poisonous. In other worlds, it's trying to tell you, "Touch me and you're sure to be right sorry my fine friend!" Its slow, deliberate swimming style also suggests that this is one fish not to mess with!

File comment: It's quite common for enthusiasts to keep bitterlings in the same tank as tropical fish, eh wot? Indeed, once upon a time, this fish was a popular choice for the private fishing ponds of the rich!

File comment: The black bass sports tremendous strength for its size, making it a popular catch in sport fishing. The bass is so popular that there are even fishermen who specialize exclusively in catching bass, eh wot? There are concerns about the effect of fishing on its habitat... but even so, this fish remains a favorite.

File comment: Ah, yes, hoo, the octopus. Did you know the blood of the octopus is actually colored blue? With its eight legs and predilection for spewing ink... you'd think people would be repulsed by it. And yet, perhaps due to its fetching shape, the octopus remains one of the most loved sea creatures.

File comment: Olive flounders are masters of self-transformation... who, I'm told, can grow to almost 40 inches long. That's like some kind of underwater bath mat! It's a good thing you caught this one while it's still young!

File comment: Did you know the most popular bait used for rainbow trout fishing is a few salmon eggs? Rather horrific when you remember that rainbow trout and salmon are related... Blech.

File comment: Hoo, magnificent! Fine job, snapping up a red snapper! ... Hoo now? You didn't find that uproariously funny? In any case, right near the gills of this fish is a bone that actually looks just like the fish itself... Some cultures believe keeping one of thse on you brings good luck. Good luck is a snap! Hoo!

File comment: yellow perch have spiny dorsal fins that make them look rather tough. Here's an interesting tidbit: as fry, these fish will hide amongst water plants by standing on their heads! It stands to reason that a tough fish like this one must be clever from the day it's born...

File comment: The pale chub is a freshwater fish. During its spawning season, it turns a vivid blue, wot wot? Rather fascinating how a fish normally so plain can put forth such an effort when love is on the line... Perhaps I might stand to adopt that fish philosophy myself, and quite soon!

Post Mythwood Museum - Bugs
Here is the bug exhibit... watch out, some bite!

File comment: Monarch butterflies are quite colorful, aren't they? ...As it happens, the colors indicate they're poisonous! I certainly start to feel queasy when I look at one. Though that happens with all bugs...

File comment: Ah, hoo... indeed. Crickets do have a lovely chirp, I must grudgingly admit. Still that black body, those long feelers... How do people love these when they resemble... THOSE? I bet one couldn't even tell the difference between a cricket and a cockroach in the dark of night...

File comment: As both mole crickets and moles dig holes, it's said many parts of their bodies evolved on similar paths... But the mole is nowhere near as off-putting as this bug... How could they be? Moles don't have antennae.

Post Mythwood Museum - Gyroids
Oh, boy... this is the place for those creepy little dancing things that only a strange bird could love... I'm not sure you'll find me here often.
