Who says there aren't? Granted, you'd need exactly 96 people to make a grid square qualify as a dodecahedron, but it can be done.

I don't think that's a snake. I think it's the bushy-tailed tree rat being sneaky. See, Megan, I *told* you not to feed those things.

Not really. Water doesn't need to be very deep to totally obscure any unevenness in the landscape it's flowing over, and the fact that it's flowing tends to suppress any waves.

I've been thinking, they can't be on the seashore. Even in a secluded bay, there would be at least ripples in the water, if not outright waves. So the water has to be a lake; but what lake has that much sand on its shores? Most lakes I've ever met had dirt/mud on their shores, not sand.
