rare fur-covered beasts 12/9/2012

this mammal is called okapi. it lives in the rainforests of congo. it's tongue is blue-black and so long that it can wash it's eyes with it. there is a tar-like substance leaking from the hooves that helps to communicate with other okapis in the same area.
together with rae mariz i'm working on a book about mammals. it's overwhelming to do research and find out about bats as big as bumlebees, pink milk sweating hedgehogs and blind moles covered with iridescent fur.

dear friends of nature,
a team of explorers has lately discovered an ecological niche where a huge amont of strange creatures has found an island position to rest. what these six scientists have detected is so special and so rare that they instantly wrote a guideline through the breathtaking place of nature listing the endemic beings - microscopic or monstrous, dangerous or chummily.

this kooky book (with 900 colored images) will be offered for free to all visitors of the dockville-festival in hamburg because the spot where the ecological recess is located is straight beside the festival area!
