  1. Hello there, that sounds like a cold place to spend an entire life cycle :) Brrrrr not for me thank you very much! Nice looking site btw

  2. Very nice looking blog, comments a little hard to read because they are different colours, so maybe see if you can sort that in the Themes section.

    Your blog seems like an interesting area and if you follow this through should be a nicely focussed blog. For a single species description, I like to see detailed information about the species, focussed along a question such as what do they contribute to the ecosystem?, why are they important? and so on.

    Great stuff.
