    The elusive and rare ceiling cone!! *pictures*

    While working in Grand Rapids this past Wednesday, something above me caught my eye. Is that what I think it is?!

    A ceiling cone?!

    A close up.

    I thought of PT right away of course... LOL! I was so tempted to get a ladder and pluck him down.

    OMG it's soooo cute. I've never seen one quite like it. I wonder if it was part of a pack and wandered off by itself.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    LOL! I did a search on PT the other day for something TOTALLY unrelated to cones and came across the cone thread. Ever since then I can't look at cones in quite the same way! One took out my front bumper last year and I had a battle royale trying to get CalTrans to repay my insurance deductible. Yup, I appealed it all through the state's system and came back with nada. Oh well. I guess it was a case of conus interruptus -- my car was in the shop for about two weeks!

    Riding my bike somewhere...

    I'm so jealous of you... Maybe this species of cone is related to the bat?

    Very Rare Breed Indeed!!!!!
    Glad you let it be!!!!
    They can be Very Protective of their surroundings!!!!
    I Believe They,Like their cousin,The Bat....are nocturnal!!!
    You did notice that it was Fast Asleep,while protecting that smoke detector!!!
    We could report your find to
    American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Conus Stalagmitus!!!!!!!
    They will want to know his whereabouts,They will probably approach him in daylight..(while he sleeps) and attach a small transmitter,This does not hurt the Conus Stalagmitus,He barely feels it....They will want to follow him to learn more of his Food intake,His Mating Ritual,Etc.
    Kim,You've made quite the Discovery....1-800-Sav-a- Cone is their number!!!
    You Should Be SO PROUD!!!!
    Please Keep Us Updated!!!!!!
