In light of the recent maps 'n' monsters shows, this Slate article will be of interest:

Several of those critters were used for the intro to the video game Colonization.

That map was awesome. Thanks for that. I just wish I could move into the map on a work-study.

What is it with trees and animals in the middle ages? I guess the line was blurry to them. Fish, dolphin, plant, sea anemone, lamb of tatary. But, I mean... they never saw fish fruit, why assume the fish came from fruit when they weren't looking? Why not assume... ah, forget it. Maybe it was more fun the other way.

No nessie tho... I thought for sure there would be nessie, but there is just this guy sitting there where she should be.
