So I found this caterpillar on my way to class

We’re bros

oddity-txt:

I named him chicken nugget

oddity-txt:

Aaaa he’s turning a duller color… I hope he’s alright

oddity-txt:

So apparently chicken nugget is a spicebush swallowtail and they turn yellow before they pupate. He was making little silk things everywhere Bruh this caterpie is going to evolve to metapod today my boy isn’t messing around

oddity-txt:

update hes entirely yellow now

oddity-txt:

imageimage

i made him a tube room

hes crawlin all over the place checking it out

oddity-txt:

its happening

oddity-txt:

False alarm he moved a bit
This guy

oddity-txt:

??? caterpie doesnt evolve into kakuna

oddity-txt:

whats he doing

oddity-txt:

its happening part 2 For Real This Time

oddity-txt:

chicken nugget using those advanced tactics balancing my man doesnt do anything halfway

oddity-txt:

i put on some tunez for him so he can get into the metamorphazone

oddity-txt:

sorry for keeping you all in suspense but chicken nugget is doing fine and he has a cool hat now

hes been chillin like this for a couple days 

oddity-txt:

hes been in cocoon for 10 days now
🎉🐛🎉


rebecca-lotto-mage-of-breath:

let me know how he’s doing soon

oddity-txt:

HES BUSTIN OUT

oddity-txt:

im going to sleep, chicken nugget is snoozin and ill check up on him as soon as i wake up

hope he doesnt party too hard 

🐛 💤 💤 

oddity-txt:

hes gone goth hes in his emoteen stage

oddity-txt:

CHICKEN NUGGET IS A CHICKEN WING NOW BABY WE HAVE LIFTOFF!!!!!

oddity-txt:

hes’s in a bigger container than the one in the pic now but im gonna let my home boy find his way in the world after he gets used to his wings a little bit

A High Stellar Velocity Dispersion and ~100 Globular Clusters for the Ultra Diffuse Galaxy Dragonfly 44
by Pieter van Dokkum, Roberto Abraham, et al.
http://arxiv.org/abs/1606.06291v1 (20 Jun 2016)


Recently a population of large, very low surface brightness, spheroidal galaxies was identified in the Coma cluster. The apparent survival of these Ultra Diffuse Galaxies (UDGs) in a rich cluster suggests that they have very high masses. Here we present the stellar kinematics of Dragonfly 44, one of the largest Coma UDGs, using a 33.5 hr integration with DEIMOS on the Keck II telescope. We find a velocity dispersion of 47 km/s, which implies a dynamical mass of M_dyn=0.7x10^10 M_sun within its deprojected half-light radius of r_1/2=4.6 kpc. The mass-to-light ratio is M/L=48 M_sun/L_sun, and the dark matter fraction is 98 percent within the half-light radius. The high mass of Dragonfly 44 is accompanied by a large globular cluster population. From deep Gemini imaging taken in 0.4" seeing we infer that Dragonfly 44 has 94 globular clusters, similar to the counts for other galaxies in this mass range. Our results add to other recent evidence that many UDGs are "failed" galaxies, with the sizes, dark matter content, and globular cluster systems of much more luminous objects. We estimate the total dark halo mass of Dragonfly 44 by comparing the amount of dark matter within r=4.6 kpc to enclosed mass profiles of NFW halos. The enclosed mass suggests a total mass of ~10^12 M_sun, similar to the mass of the Milky Way. The existence of nearly-dark objects with this mass was unexpected, as galaxy formation was thought to be maximally-efficient in this regime.
