Dillard wryly notes her penchant for details, information, facts, ideas-- "trivia" perhaps. She loves strange and bizarre facts-- all a part of the intricacy which is the subject of this chapter.
On page 138 Dillard mentions three strange creatures-"-hagfish, platypuses, lizard like pangolins." Use the Internet to research a "strange creature" either real or imaginary.
