Wow, your choice for ..insect of the day.. leaves me flabbergasted. I did not know about this creature and hope I never see one here in the states. Great job on both the poem and the notes.

    Thank you Melissa for your review, yes I think if I saw this guy I would be very frightened, he is a bit like an alien from outer space! Or something prehistoric, Love Dolly x

A very well-written rhyming poem about the Giant Georgian Speekle who lives deep down in the ocean and can survive for long periods without food. There are probably more creatures no one discovered yet.

Dolly,

How intriguing! I had to go and look up more information - I was baffled that something like this could be found so near to me. YIKES!

Your poem describes them well, while entertaining us with the masterful internal rhyming you are so good at.

Thanks!

How interesting! So it's another Lazarus species - once thought to be extinct but really alive? Wow - to live without food for 5 years? Thank you for sharing about this - it looks like a giant pill bug (wood louse).

This ode to the Giant Georgian Speekle, makes me think that one of these might be mistaken for an giant cockroach. There is a legend of one in South Carolina being shot with a pistol.

I don't think I would like it if one of these followed me home! They might be harmless, but I am not fond of things with six legs. Amazing that they can live without food for 5 years! I get hungry after 5 hours...

A cute poem for this oddity. I've never heard of it and am totally unlikely to see one - i wonder how on earth it came to be following a man in Georgia. You'd think it would die when it surfaced.
It looks like a huge Aussie slater - woodlouse sort of thingy... another isopod.

A true denizen of the deep. This one doesn't bite so it is no small wonder he doesn't east for days on end. Since he lives five and a half thousand feet down, I think I am unlikely to come face to face with him. Looks like a giant woodlouse to me, rolling himself into a ball defensively too.

    These are such odd creatures that I just had to write about them, I am scraping the bottom of the insect barrel now as I think I?ve written about most of them! So I am turning every stone to find something different! Thank you for your review, love Dolly x

This guy is sure an ugly beast, but then we judge by human standards, probably God doesn't share in that opinion. This is a very interesting bug, so well done with this one Dolly, a marvellously written post, my friend, blessings Roy

Fascinating! I have the first line of my return limerick ready to go, just need to wake up my muse to help finish it...
'There once was a Speekle named George"
An entertaining entry to the Rhymed Poem contest with clever use of internal rhyme throughout. I wish you all good luck.

    Thank you for your review Tony, I didn?t enter this in a contest, but maybe I should have? Glad this has sparked off your muse for a Limerick! You may use my image for it if you want, I don?t mind, I shall look out for your Limerick, love Dolly x
