What Creature Made this House for Himself?
I just read a mind-boggling article from American Scientist, "The Magazine of Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society," for March-April 2008. It was a book review of Mike Hansell's Built By Animals: The Natural History of Animal Architecture written by biology professor and author J. Scott Turner. This photo accompanied the article. It is a house built by a non-human organism, carried around by that creature for its protection. Tell me what created this. After I get some responses, I'll reveal the answer--you will be agog.
