I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.

Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.

ANOTHER ANATOMY POST! Only three vertebrate groups have successfully evolved flight: Birds, Bats, and Pterosaurs, which are NOT dinosaurs, and are an extremely diverse group of reptiles! Pterodactyl is not the only one. However, birds ARE dinosaurs. Avian dinosaurs!

Wings are not some extra structure you tack on to a creature and somehow the arms go away— they ARE arms. Think about that when you are designing creatures with wings and also giving them arms. That means your creature has six limbs.

Next anatomy post: The anatomy and evolution of DRAGONS. If you guys have any requests, feel free to send them in!

Yes! Thank you! I spent a summer identifying fossils in S.Africa, and The *best part* was discovering that all mammals have the same bone parts, just all different sizes due to evolution. SCIENCE!

WIPs and steps for an artwork done for http://pokerole-project.tumblr.com/ because I felt I could do something from their list as a challenge and as relax between commissions. I chose ‘an injured pokemon that barely can keep on fighting’, with Nidorino, later Bisharp and Charmeleon, in mind. It ended with Amaura as you can see. 

The original idea was more landscape-ish, but the picture was getting shorter and shorter as I realised the size. Also I didn’t add cast shadow from the ice cloud because artistic licence. Note: in this version I included watermark.

Like 98% were done in GIMP, only the bottom left corner and the ice cloud was painted in SAI, which was then edited and finished in GIMP.

Reblog if you think that snakes should be treated better!

Yea snakes are way cuter then cats. like their cute killer instincts.



Contrary to animal rights propaganda and media hype, the greatest invasive species predator threat to wildlife in the Everglades is the feral cat, not the Burmese python. (x)

A lot can be said on this subject but I will leave my thoughts on it to just this: BOTH are carnivores and have “killer instincts” or they would not hunt and be able to survive. Cats kill loads of birds, rodents and reptiles. (x) (x) Native snakes are actually very important to the ecosystem while feral and “outdoor” cats are detrimental to it. One’s worth should not be weighed by how “cute” you perceive it to be.

It instead teaches cruelty and disregard for life, as well as indicates your own need to be taught a lesson in responsibility.
This article is otherwise known as: Fish and Children
I thought this picture, however, should be passed around as it is the most confusing and awful thing I see in how modern society treats small animals.
This will talk about the role of children in the lives of small and large pets and how modern society treats small pets as opposed to small pets, as well as the consequences therein. Most of this is under the cut.

Relevant for reptiles as well.
