Januz Miralles: Digital and Painting Work
In his cryptic and elusive works, visual artist Januz Miralles from the Philippines, explores the beauty and fragileness of the female body by fusing photography, drawing and painting. These photo manipulations, in a monochromatic range of color with occasional dashes of red, sport an unexpected handmade element to their digital images. While the artist and his techniques seem to be as enigmatic as his works, he doesn’t fail to awake emotions in both his strong imagery and their viewers.
Wow, check out this great photo of nothing but carpeted stairs.

Dwarf Caiman - Paleosuchus palpebrosus
Also named Cuvier’s Smooth-fronted Caiman, Paleosuchus palpebrosus (Crocodylia - Alligatoridae) is a small, South American caiman, found near rivers and inundated savanna areas. This species is the smallest of the family. Males grow to about 1.3-1.5 meters, while the females grow to 1.2 meters.
Paleosuchus palpebrosus is a social species with diverse and interesting behaviors. Like most crocodilians, they can convey social messages through sounds, postures, movements, smells, and touch. Although most crocodilians are somewhat social, P. palpebrosus are typically found alone or in pairs.
Systematic studies of adults indicate that there are dominance hierarchies within groups. The most hostile and aggressive individuals appear to be the most dominant. These individuals control access to mates, nest sites, food, and living space. Dominance is asserted and maintained by social signals and displays.
