    It's the demon spawn of Twisted Crank and a hairy legged hippie chick.

    That said, I can't believe that you're in Moab and, instead of riding, you're sitting in your hotel room posting photos on mtbr! Save some good rides for me!!!

    Looks like a trillobyte or something. ODD. Rubber mold maybe?
    How long are you guys down there?

    A crew of us are heading down from Boise tonight. We will be at Barletts at about noon tomorrow (man it feels great to type that).

    We will be at the Lazy Lizard if you need some spud love.

    Dang you Gary

    I just wasted about an hour trying to find something on the internet, no luck other than one picture of the same animal with no name attached.

    Looks like some kind of flounderfish or a suckerfish.

    The original photo looked very similar to something one of my nephews was raising in a fish tank, before which I don't think I've ever seen one before. They're definitely neat for the kids.

    You can thank EVOLUTION for this. That's right: E-VOL-U-TION. Evil-ution. The devil's spawn. Give those lil slime demons about 3 hundred million years and those lil feckers will be hucking sh!t in the foothills. Wait a sec, there ain't no sh!t to huck in the foothills. That, and Idaho will be a primordial sea again anyway.

    Me? I gotta go feed the cockroaches. I got an army of little hissers that can kick those slimers buttz.

    If this ain't an endorsement for MTBReview, I don't know what is. Mountain biking and biology all on one easy to access web site.

    How about "Team Triops" jerseys?

    I can't be the only one to chuckle at your every post! Seriously I roll when I read your material, free comedy. I know when a thread says "Last Post: Twisted Crank" I can count on it being a laugh-in. Let's party.

    Reincarnate

    Is it the reincarnate of Helen Chenoweth? Was she forced back in time do to swallowing Ravinscroft primordial oooz. I wonder if her head stone reads, “Now she swims with Salmon.”

    Helen didn't swallow. She spit. Not a good girl at all.

    Ding ding!

    We have a winner. Mr. Bob, PM me to collect. Tadpole shrimp (triops longicaudatus) are primitive branchiopod crustaceans that face extreme conditions in ephemeral desert pools. Basically they are shrimp that live in the dry pools on Slickrock. Once it rains and the pools fill up, it's orgy time (sometimes the pools only last for a day).. at least, until the pools dry up again...
    Amazing to think that crustaceans can survive in Slickrock...

    Dude - that is the primary ingredient in bagoong. Throw in some onions, olive oil, and garlic and you gots some good eating.

    Actually the amazing thing is that people encourage Twisted and I to run through the forest with loopers and hand tools.

    Who won the spackle race at Gardiner? Was it cornastrophic?

    With only a short period of time in which to mate the Asian wonder and the blonde bombshell threw themselves into the muck for some mad mud puppy love. In the heat of beastly monkey love, several crustacean (triops) where thrown from the cesspool of passion. When it was heard, “unhand me wench, I need my camera finger to entertain those poor smucks quagmired at work.”

    Gary where’s the beef – more real bike porno.
