Something I used to do back before I got a real job…

Artist knew the difference between male and female plumages in American Robins and didn’t feel the need to over-explain that. I’d say that counts.

Some of the Jake Likes Onions strips, e.g., https://twitter.com/jakelikesonions/status/920694819126759436?lang=en

I think that’s https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/42048-Canis-lupus and either another wolf or one of the larger mustelids.

the thread following that comic is almost as funny as the comic itself! @choess

Homo sapiens for both, but I assume we can ignore those!

I still love The Far Side. There are way too many good ones to pick a favorite.

Which species(s) are involved here?

Liv’s Tails from the Field is really relatable. Also I’ve done field work with the artist.

I like to use this one as my final “Questions?” slide when I give presentations, another excellent contribution from Rosemary Mosco/Bird and Moon. I also recommend her book, Birding Is My Favorite Video Game

I have this one on the wall in my office:

He’s back. After a 24 year hiatus, Gary Larson has returned, with a web presence of the Far Side.
# All in the Phylum, comic collection

Way back in the last century, when I was studying biology, the Far Side was one of the favourite pre digital shares among classmates.

Article that brought me to that web site: The Far Side comic makes a beautifully weird return

This one is pretty funny. This is the comic called Shaaark! It is one of my favorites and is pretty silly. This one is one of the funniest. I think these come out of Australia. The author is named Phil and he pokes fun at our antics but in a shark’s world. This one is pretty silly.
