    We have these around here. They are apparently 'social' and get along well in groups. I saw a mess of them chowing down on a deer carcass out back. Ahhhh, the revolting beauty of the Cycle of Life. Please don't s**t that all over my truck ....

    Lithops, commonly known as “living stones,” are plants native to the dry climates of Southern Africa. They look just like a couple of pebbles, and this camouflage prevents hungry, thirsty animals from gobbling them up during a drought.
