Indiana's Indigenous Animals
Are you aware that dozens of different animals call Indiana home? It's true! In fact, many native animals can be found right here in Shelby County. And some of the wilder critters regularly roam the streets and alleys of Shelbyville!

Just consider for a moment how many times you've propped your weary feet up on a weathered wooden porch rail, chugged a cold six-pack of Budweiser, then right before you tumbled into a drunken stupor, a strange furry critter skittered under your upholstered porch recliner then immediately disappeared into the dark murky shadows. And you probably exclaimed, "What in the name of HELL was THAT!?"

I'll bet that's happened to you many more times than you care to admit.

Frustrating isn't it? And sometimes, it can be downright frightening! Because nowadays, you never know what kind of critter may be lurking near your property.

Perhaps it will comfort you to learn that I've created a special spotter's guide to help you identify those scary phantom creatures. This free original "Hoosier Wildlife" document contains 22 depictions of Hoosierland's most commonly sighted indigenous creatures. Click HERE to download a PDF of the full-size original artwork. Then use it as a handy guide when reporting mysterious critter sightings to government officials, law enforcement personnel or the Department of Homeland Security.

Study the artwork and see if you can find all 22 animals hidden in the picture. Also, since the artwork is black & white, you can easily and inexpensively print multiple copies for family and friends. Color the copies with crayons. Or colored pencils. Or colored markers. Or watercolors. You get the idea.

How fun is that? And did I mention it's free!?

Help!! I just saw the "Evil eye" running towards city hall! Someone go help the mayor.

Hahaha just kidding, Scott doesn't need any help - he's only getting what he deserves. He has been playing the reverse of Robin Hood, taking from the poor and giving to the rich! The reason we are giving him the evil eye is because that's all we have left!!!

Where is the Terrible Two Monster in your cartoon?

He eats up all of the twos in town and craps them out like zeroes.

He looks like Messer photographs.
