In Bird and Moon, field naturalist Rosemary Mosco has found a way to tap into the quirky minds of biologists through cartoon. Perhaps it is a close circle of initiates who would rank owl pellets above wedding photos (see below), or who take the time to digest the nomenclatural origins of electric eels or horny toads (“Not a toad. Only thinks of you as a friend”: see Animals with Misleading Names). Fortunately, Mosco is one of those initiates who sees the humor in the natural sciences and is willing to poke it with a stick. You can see more of Mosco’s work here.
