More Guam

You have just received photos from Sandy Liberty in Guam. Sandy had told you that among the creatures that wander through her back yard are monitor lizards, and she has now sent photos of one she came across, but wisely did not get too close to. Some reach 6 feet in length.

While in Guam you also saw a coconut crab, the largest land-living arthropod in the world. Here’s one on a garbage can. That’s not trick photography. That’s a real crab. They also wander around in back yards.

Mr. Bill says, “Yeah? So what? Back in the day I wandered around entire continents!”
