  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Before J. M. Barrie introduced us to the charmingly cranky and vindictive Tinker Bell, fairies had traditionally been cast as vicious scoundrels hell-bent on stealing your kids and tearing up that lawn you paid so much money for. Today the fairy is a decidedly more whimsical, endearing creature, and nowhere is it more legendary than in the deserts of Argentina.

Aww...that is such a cutie.
I never suspected such a creature existed; since it's carapace is not fully attached to its body does that mean it can be shed in an emergency? Sort of like how some lizards shedding part of its tail to elude predators?

Wow! Incredible. Never heard of it! It is a cute little thing (albeit with crazy claws).
