YAY!!! I cannot believe it, but I have reached a phenomenal 50,000 followers (now 55,555)! That’s 49,500 more than I ever hoped to have, hehe, and to celebrate and say thank you for your unbelievable support, I want to give a little something back.


There will be three lucky winners who will each win one of these prizes…

1ST PRIZE:
The large Oh-Totoro (grey) plushie.

2ND PRIZE:
The medium Chu-Totoro (blue) plushie.

3RD PRIZE:
The small Chibi-Totoro (white) plushie.

All three of these plushies are genuine Japanese merchandise and feature the official “Approved by Studio Ghibli” sticker, so are very high quality! ^___^


HOW TO ENTER:

1. You must be following oh-totoro
     - I will check this after making the draw and redraw if necessary.
2. You must reblog this post.
     - Each reblog counts as an entry. You may reblog once per day.
3. You must be willing to give me your postal address.
     - Well, this should be obvious.
4. A photo of each winner with their prize would be greatly appreciated so I can reblog it to oh-totoro, but this is not a requirement.


DATE OF DRAW:

Thursday 31st July 2014 (and will be announced a week later)

I will contact the three winners on this date and give them 48 hours to respond to my Ask. If I don’t receive a response, I will nudge up those who have responded and redraw the lowest prize. This will also be the case if Asks are not enabled. Make sure your Asks are enabled!


WHO CAN ENTER:

Anybody can enter. I will post to any country. So don’t miss out!

Good luck! x

Sea Creature that looks exactly like a rock with guts.
Pyura chilensis is a creature that not only looks like a rock, but is also completely immobile like one too. It eats by sucking in water and filtering out micro-organisms. Its blood also produces a   rare element called vanadium. 
It is born male, but becomes hermaphroditic at puberty. It also eproduces by tossing clouds of sperm and eggs into the surrounding water and hoping they knock together.
Another fun fact about this creature is that it is consumed. Locals of Chile or Peru (thats where it is found) eat it raw or in stews. They say it tastes “soapy” and "bitter" 

Yet another fun fact. This creature is a tunicate, which means it’s in the phylum chordata, which means, it’s related to animals with back bones. Tunicates are thought to be at the base of the evolutionary branch that lead to whales, tigers, crocodiles, eagles, and humans.
Yes, millions of years ago, your ancestor could have quite possibly looked like a rock with guts.
