Bats, Blobfish and More: Creepy, Weird Animals for Halloween

0 Written by: | Friday, Oct 31, 2014 9:00am

This column, That Nature Show, is about the nature right under your nose: in our backyards, playgrounds and parks! Stop and look around, you’ll be amazed at what surrounds you. 

Velllcome, friendos, to That Nature Show’s Halloween edition. Bwhahahahaha. Today we’re going to be glad that after Friday we can take our banana and calavera costumes off, go back to being our selves — suburban mothers of two, poetry slammers, hipsters, lacrosse dads, wearers of designer boots, purchasers of pour-overs, because the world’s weirdest animals never can. For as long as it lives the warthog will be a warthog. It doesn’t get to play around.

The aye-aye (below) will always be a aye-aye. It can never get out of its wacky vampire-bat-ish clown suit.  See how surprised-Gremlin it looks? Like, I’m stuck in this pop-up Halloween store cheap made-in-China costume? Are you serious? What the %^&?

Interestingly, aye-ayes are primates, and so related to us, and the only place they live is on the island of Madagascar.  All I can say about that is, thank G-d, all we have in Baltimore is rats.
