WTF, Nature? is a blog about natural oddities. Kinda like Cute Overload, but with a different adjective.

Wow, I never realized that earwigs had wings, and beautiful ones at that.

We are not really quite as cool as we think we are.

Just be careful. Nature can have a 'not safe for work' sense of humor.

That's a very cool group. Thanks for the link. I'm also enjoying the pile-on on the lone creationist there.

next time you're being eaten by a shark, be sure to check inside its nostrils for interesting leech species

Linked from the site:

". . . a young, adult male Antarctic fur seal, in good condition, attempting to copulate with an adult king penguin of unknown sex.
. . .
The penguin flapped its flippers and attempted to stand and escape - but to no avail.
. . .
The penguin did not appear to have been injured by the seal, the scientists report."

Just deeply, deeply humiliated.
