I’ve modified a couple of posts. First off, National Geographic weighed in on How Mistletoe Became Everyone’s Favorite Parasite. You can read about it by clicking the link, or by checking out the addendum to What’s Mistletoe?
There’s a couple of updates about Water Bears as well, as it turns out they are both more and less weird than I thought. They probably aren’t rampaging DNA thieves, but they do secrete glass. Check out those links, or read the update to Pangolins and Water Bears, Oh My!
Happy Holidays, everyone!
