Behold the porcupette
Max's offspring is insanely adorable. Happy Monday!
Exciting and adorable news! A baby porcupine is called a porcupette. It's just fun to say -- even more so because we'll now get to say it a lot! A porcupette was born at our Wieland Wil‎dlife Home Friday night to prehensile-tailed porcupine Quinn. Mom and baby, who weighs 407 grams and is about the size of a guinea pig, are doing fine!

Take a break from cat pics and talking about Voldemort, and check out my project where Kelly, the African elephant at +Zoo Atlanta, paints music. Yes! Using a +Makey Makey, a paintbrush also becomes a drum, piano and more.

I hope to expand on creating new digital objects in order to improve the lives of animals for my thesis, so more to come!

May panda be with you...
Yang Yang makes his debut at the Vatican!
We would know those ears anywhere ... even in Rome!
Yang Yang was one of 15 animals projected onto the Vatican on Tuesday thanks to the fantastic endangered species photography of Joel Sartore. #ZAPandas

Work on what you love
(But also know that lack of data could mean a problematic and difficult data visualization project.) I started this project over a few times, but this data is accurate and up-to-date. Check out the data visualization at goo.gl/QAcbvv.

Thanks to my old Zoo Atlanta panda research superstar friend Sarah Bexell, RedList, and the Red Panda Network for their data and support!

All the cereal to you!
RIP Max, my one and only porcupine friend. We worked together on this hangout- so many cereal crumbs! https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/ciqgh0jrplk3t2utctlebr82kh4
Another interesting looking animal from Central and South America...

Meet Max, the prehensile-tailed porcupine. Who in our humble opinion may be one of the cutest arboreal-nocturnal-vegetarian rodents around ...
