Limpkin Cloned!

Cheri Beats the Scots!

Although the Scots have claimed a first in cloning a sheep, I have definite proof that Cheri has not only succeeded in cloning an animal, she has actually brought one back from extinction. Her first attempt was not too successful, producing a grapefruit-eating, rock-smashing specimen, but further cloning attempts were so good that many individuals were actually released into the wilds of Limpkin World.

And one of them even ate real limpkin food!

This Limpkin says, "No grapefruits for me!"

Whooping Cranes in Florida

I was fortunate to have Cheri bring me to a place where captive-bred whooping cranes had been released. Although not "countable," these were magnificent birds and I truly enjoyed seeing them. Sheer grace and elegance. Whooping CranePair of Whooping Cranes in Kissimee, Florida
