Have you ever seen a baby horseshoe Crab (Limulus sp.) before? They are tiny little things, that within a few weeks will grow so much every time they molt (change the exoskeleton), measuring up to 60cm in length, plus the female can lay up to 60,000 eggs at once.

THE SKUNK WANTS TO BE PICKED UP IM CRYING
In his five short weeks of life, Orbit hasn’t met many other owls.
So he isn’t at all worried that his new best friend doesn’t hoot back.
The orphaned chick is perfectly content in the company of the stuffed bird perched next to him and is never far from his side.
Orbit, a common barn owl, was given the toy by Lyndsey Wood, his carer at Folly Farm, near Narberth in West Wales.
She said: ‘A friend suggested that I find something like a toy owl to stop Orbit feeling lonely.
‘I thought he might try to eat it, but he just cuddles up to it and goes to sleep.’
OH MY GOD
Oh no this is as sad as it is cute.
