    @Bharat Kumar: Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) is here http://eol.org/pages/584643/ . There is a fair amount of information on the Nepenthes page for pitcher plants: http://eol.org/pages/60885/. A collection of insectivorous plants is a great idea!

    @Peggy Eppig: Hi Peggy, thanks for leaving me the message. I've asked the head of our content group, Dr. Cyndy Parr, to open a dialog with you about becoming a curator. But I'd also like to learn more about your work - any chance we could set up a phone call some time in the new year?

    Hi Bob, I'm starting my PhD research with a life history of Bombus terricola that you currently curate. I am very interested in the open access capability of EOL as both a researcher and potential contributor for this rapdily declining species. How can I get more involved with EOL? I am also a contributor to Discover Life. Bee well! Peggy

    Another stunning capture with the chance to see the colour changes in this frog.The colours do help the frog to fit into it's background.

    Hi Bob - thanks! Couple more in the next paragraphs still to do ;-) With the Gigas link, I guess what's needed is some way of overriding the auto-formation of EOL links; there are plenty of other cases where it could occur, one that comes to mind is 'cotyledon', which is a genus in the family Crassulaceae, as well as seed-leaves of plants.

    Hi Bob - Alces alces gigas http://eol.org/data_objects/19218658 - could you re-do this in proper measurements, please?: An adult male moose stands 2 metres tall at the shoulder, is 2.6-2.8 m long from head to rump, and can weigh as much as 700 kg (females can reach 600 kg). Moose have long legs, a huge muscular hump on its back just beyond the head, big ears, and no tail. Its long snout is decorated underneath with a flap of skin called the “dewlap”, a structure used to release scent during the rut. ....etc. My inclination otherwise is to untrust it as incomprehensible archaic imperialist gibberish ;-) The EOL software has also put a non-relevant link into "Gigas", maybe needs some work-around to delink that? Thanks!

    Hi Bob, I'm not sure who gets it, but I just sent a second note to error@eol.org about a browser issue I'm having. I use multiple browsers and I'm finding that I can only access eol _at all_ (even the front page) with one browser at a time. Not one instance of a browser, but one "Brand" - I'm using Chrome here, but my Safari only gets the oops page. Last week, the opposite was true. :( I thought the product guy should hear about it, in case that doesn't go to you. :)
