True, but Wikipedia is good for quick reference, and it has reference links and sources at the bottom of the page. I like to think of Wikipedia as a springboard. And until Noah starts accepting other websites as reference links, it's what we have to work with right now.

What an interesting link Latimeria! LOVED the picture of the beautiful spotted salamander, too.

Totally feel you on that vibe, Mitch. We do also connect with Encyclopedia of Life, which is a more legit reference source.

Just a thought ;)

I have a photo somewhere of an egg mass, you can see the algal cells inside. I'm not a big fan of Wikipedia, if folks want to know more I would recommend picking up a legitimate book.

I used to have one as a pet, found a bunch of larva while camping Upstate NY in an almost-dry baking vernal pool, within a day the others had died. I took them home (the ones I caught earlier) and all but 1 lived, had the adult for 2 years then it got sick and died.

Too cool! I just read this article yesterday, and it's too interesting not to share: Also, you might think about adding the Wikipedia page as a reference link for this spotting.
