”…blah blah blah-” ”…blah blah-” //
”-JAY!-” //
”-blah blah blah… ”-blah blah…”

Pöllösarjikset loppuvat nyt tältä erää, katsellaan seuraavalla kenttäkaudella josko tekisin lisää.
This is the last owl comic for now, let’s see after the next field season if I’ll make more.

”Eeek!” ”I’ve got the female!” //
”Everything ready?” ”We’re ready.” //
”420 grams…” ”Copy that.” //
”Now, let’s place a temperature logger under the skin of her belly.” ”Let’s do it.” //
”But… this one ALREADY HAS a logger!” ”She must be one of those two females we gave a logger two years ago! //
”Well, look at that! I thought she’d be dead since we haven’t seen her in a long time!” ”Hey!” //
”Today I got a grant AND found an old logger! This day will stay in my personal history records!”

”Oh, how nice, there’s a documentary about plants in the TV today.” //
”It has such a lovely name, too: ’From roses to water lilies'” //
”Actually…” //
”…water lilies, even though they are dicotyledons, are a very primitive group of plants…” //
”…unlike roses that belong to a more developed group called Rosopsida. A more fitting name would therefore be…” //
”…’From water lilies to roses’.” //
”Leave me alone.” ”What?!”

”In here live two otters, one of them is just swimming…” ”Is it a girl or a boy?” ”Cute!” //
”This one’s a boy.” ”How do you know if an otter is a girl or a boy?” ”Uhm…” //
”How am I going to explain this so that a four-year-old understands? I’m a biologist and a zoo guide, I can’t lie to her!” //
”Well, you know that human boys have willy and girls don’t, right?” ”Yes.” //
”Good, so, the same goes for otters: boy otters have a willy and girl otters don’t.” ”Okay.” //
”Nailed it!”
