The curved nails on it's two-toed feet feel very weird.

I’m Parke! I’m an astrophysicist currently working as a postdoc with Evgenya Shkolnik at ASU. I conduct research on planetary systems where the host star is smaller than the Sun, focusing on the ultraviolet light these stars emit and its volatility. I also fly planes, rock climb, run, and regularly disappear into the backcountry. I love feeling overawed, be it through imagining the cosmos, soaring in an ocean of air, clinging to the face of a mountain, or being engulfed in a vast wilderness.
