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

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.
