As a naturalist, I wish that I had... [Dr. Seuss tribute]

Cyborg eyes that can zoom like my laptop, from the eagle in the sky to that supermacro is it an insect or ??

For many years I have longed to have a prehensile tail. Oh the productivity boost!

That said, I have had other ‘longings’ and if I had to choose one, it would probably be a forked tail like a Swallow-tailed Kite, or Barn Swallow; or the Marvelous Spatuletail (hummingbird).

The prehensile tail I envision as a utilitarian tool; the other, more for show (what with being ground-based). Now, to have a forked prehensile tail…whew!.. but that only exists in a Dr. Seuss novel somewhere I suppose.
