Animal work tends to attract a high proportion of sadistic psychotics, on the one hand, and sentimental incompetents on the other.

The A24s when they were Kelsey(A24), Schooner(A64), Magin(A71), and Toba(A78). The four of them are hunting salmon along Hanson Island by utilizing the rocky shore. At 1:15 is Kelsey in the center with Schooner and Magin to her right. 

The dorsal in the photo heading belongs to Magin.

New species of bat found, Niumbaha superba, and it’s adorable.

Oh wow! I’m glad people are as excited about animals as I am. Here’s some additional photos. Fun fact: this bat is so different from others that a new genus was created!

Sorry I’ve been gone on vacation. The Everglades is truly beautiful. It is devastating how little of it is left, its a place filled with such biodiversity :)

you sit down to watch the lion king with me. i point out that leafcutter ants do not live in africa within the first five minutes. you begin to realize that you have made a horrible mistake. i continue to point out every usage of a tiger’s roar in place of a lion’s. you are at the door, but it is locked.

"Lolita can’t be moved to a sea pen, she don’t like changes, it’ll cause her stress. She should be moved to SeaWorld."

Except that Lolita’s immune system has never been exposed to the bacteria of the water in a seapen. In addition, Lolita has never…

Also at seaworld she would be exposed to all the fucked up habits the seaworld orcas have to help them cope. I wouldn’t want Toki to fuck up her teeth and have no chance of release.

She also hasn’t been exposed to any orcas who don’t speak her dialect so that alone would be stressful. The only possible park to move her to is San Diego because Corky is there, and that park is already overcrowded. 

Also I’ve read many times before that Lolita’s tank has water pumped directly from the Ocean, and has a poor filtration system. She is exposed to all sorts of stuff found in the Ocean, so she could probably handle a sea pen. It was actually really concerning when the BP oil spill happened, because there was a risk of oil getting into the tanks at the Seaquarium.
