White People with Dreads: A field guide
An impostor. Like the carausius morosus, which changes its pigmentation to disguise itself from predators, this false WPD has arranged her hair in a dread-like fashion--possibly in order to attract a mate.
A fascinating example of WPDs in varying stages of metamorphosis. While the specimen on the right has reached a larval stage of development, the one on the left is yet a pupae. Oh, young WPD, how you'll grow and change!
It's a little-known fact that WPDs can use their dreads as a form of antennae, which they employ for many different biological functions. This WPD looks nonchalant, but her left dread, as if by its own accord, appears to be seeking food.
A mainstay of the closely related subspecies People With Mullets (PWMs), the "business in the front/party in the back" strategy is less commonly employed by WPDs.
