They don’t just *look* amazing, they *are* amazing: we’re talking about the macro- and mega-fauna that are arguably least like ourselves on this whole planet. They are aliens among us. :-)

Biology research just got awesomer. Nice pics, the land scape shots of the station remind me of growing up on Georgian Bay.
