Hey guys!

So this is more of a short update than anything else but well, how often is it we come across freaks in nature? Anyway, I want you to take a close look at the following creature;

Not quite a caterpillar, not quite a butterfly... not even a chrysalis but a freakish mix of both. Yes, what you see here is one of those sad moments where mother nature chooses to naturally weed out the weak. I'm not sure what caused it, but somewhere during its transformation, the hormones the caterpillar produces as it transforms from one stage of its life to another was cut off resulting in a half-way transformation; an amalgam of sorts of all three of those creatures. It's really a piteous sight to behold because I really don't think a chrysalid as deformed as this will ever make it... it's even exposed on some parts. To make matters worse, though most of it is chrysalid, it seems to have its caterpillar mind still somewhere inside of it as it keeps wriggling about in the most unsightly fashion. I shudder to think what an existence would be like... not very pleasant I suppose. Anyway, Ray has taken quite a liking to the poor thing and he's even named the little guy Mutie. Well, I'm sorry to be cynical but... try not to get too attached, Ray!!! Mutie might not be with us on the mortal coil for much longer.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
