Entry Date 2/17/2021: Since the early 1900s, there were rumors of a hidden continent that was cut off from the rest of the world. This uncharted land, known as Carkayous, was said to reside off the coast of the Galapagos Islands. At the time, indigenous explorers told tales of strange, never before seen creatures that could only survive in the continent’s delicate ecosystems. They spoke of blue fauna, burning forests, and mountain ranges that stretched across the horizon. As the years passed, knowledge of Carkayous was lost to time. Sounds crazy, right? But, stranger things have happened. In 2009, artist Jesse Smith and his friends traveled to Ecuador for a tattoo convention. In their travels, they met a man who claimed that Carkayous really did exist and that he knew how to get there. In exchange for one of Jesse's iconic tattoos, the man offered to take the crew. Skeptical but intrigued, Jesse agreed, and the rest is history.
Entry Date 2/17/2021: Bunny Bird: The Butterfly Eater was first discovered in a 2013 expedition to the Durken Forest of Carkayous. Jesse stumbled across the erratic species while they were in the middle of a butterfly feeding frenzy. He quickly documented the experience in his journal and wrote, "With an obsession for Butterfly guts, the Bunny Bird spends every hour of every day in search of its next fix. It's typically not until they run across a Butterfly Bat that they realize how dangerous their obsession really is."

Entry Date 2/8/2021: The Eye Infested Interleukin was discovered in 2013 while Jesse was exploring Carkayous's largest mountain range. In an excerpt from Jesse’s diary, he writes, "The Eye Infested Interleukin spends most of its day floating around the Shinokey Mountains waiting for Tweaker Ticks to fly by so that he can fill his tummy. The Canopy creature of the interleukin generates eyes so fast that it eventually engulfs the Buoyant creature which inevitably suffocates it until it can no longer float, leaving the Canopy destined to end up on the ground as a pile of eyeballs."

"Butterfly Eared Bunny" from Durken Forrest. Although it's really not too scary this particular bunny spreads his ears in hopes to make him look larger so that any suspecting predators think twice before eating him. It's kinda cute watching these super harmless creatures attempt to be scary especially when you stumble across a little group of them at once.
