Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet" and "Endangered Edens."

An orange slime worm beats an orange slime ball every time!

Marty’s photo of the day #2341: Yesterday, I posted a photo of a gorgeous orange caterpillar that I photographed on the island of Borneo. In response, Cheryl Bruso commented: “Oh man beautiful picture but every time I see orange I think of . . . well, you know. Do slugs and leaches come in the color orange too?”

Since I’m here to serve, I do take requests. Cheryl, this photo from the Amazon Rainforest is for you!

And hey, you gotta admit: even though this creature (the scientist I was with called it a “slime worm”) may spark thoughts of the slime ball in the White House, it is the better looking of the two and would be the odds-on favorite in a head-to-head IQ test contest.
