Because I've not checked in in forever now seems like the PERFECT time to share a pic

this is my little vermin (codenames: Roman, "Lil' Ro Ro")



(fellow rat lovers do not despair: his lonesome status is only temporary. He was adopted from some friends and is now on the tail end of clearing up a bout of myco, which our vet recommended before we get him some companions. In the meantime, because I am a useless lump he does at least get to enjoy my company all day every day)

and here he is with a ladybug hat:

So I was cleaning my fish tank the other day, and when I catch one of the catfish, moving it out of the tank into a tub of water while I clean the tank, it started making sounds! I was awed, non fish I ever had in 20 years ever made a peep, here this one was croaking, almost like a frog. I looked it up, it's apparently common on several species of catfish, it seem that they can vibrate their bony fins, the body amplifying the sound and it comes out sounding like a frog, more over it seems to be deliberate, as studies have found that some specimens display a preference for producing these vocalisations with either their right fin or their left
So those novelty singing fish you see in stores, aren't just some random thing, they are probably based on these types of catfish, you knew?
