What's Gumby Reading?

"While parking lots are not the best parts of the road habitat, the occasional presence of one of a commonly flattened urban animal provides a unique opportunity for the relatively safe, close-up examination of specimens when they do occur."

Flattened Fauna: A Field Guide to Common Animals of Roads, Streets, and Highways, Roger Knutson
