The spoopiest part of this skeleton bird decoration is the complete lack of knowledge in basic skeletal anatomy
somebody please draw this creature with skin on because i think it would be horrifying because those are basically long fingers
well that was fun
Have fun in your nightmares, kids.
who the fuck sculpted this thing and said yes. this looks so real. and how did the people replicating it not go UM? HOW. IT’S ON THE TAIL TOO. I’M REALLY UPSET.
THEY HAVE THESE HERE TOO
it’s like a weird bird/bat hybrid
Saucy tea weasel found in Ben Than Market in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
submitted by betweenthedimandthedark
the best part about this being a civet displayed with tea and (I’m assuming also) coffee beans is that there’s a super prized coffee that is made from beans that the civet eats and then poops out
and holy crap no one told me you can collect furry animals and fight with them
this is like pokemon
i’m gonna be a pokemon master forget fighting the horde
I found a baby bat and tried to take care of it, it survived three days in a bat house I made and my googling every need of baby bats. They need to be raised by a mother bat because they need that milk. He died and I gave him a funeral. I thought it was only acceptable to kill pretty flowers go rest with him and be with him wherever we go next. All living thing deserves a send off.
Yeah… injured baby wildlife needs to be reared by trained licensed professionals, and even then the prognosis for them isn’t always great.
There are SO many reasons why you should never handle an injured or sick bat, WNS and rabies being chief among them.
Rabies via bat is actually one of the more insidious forms of it because their bites are so TINY you sometimes don’t even realize an animal has bitten you until it’s too late.
Rabies can also have an insanely long incubation period (think months) as it creeps towards your brain. So yeah… if you’ve been fucking around with sick bats you should probably go get a shot like. Now.
OP’s heart was in the right place but I’m surprised none of the info they found said do not touch bats.
Here’s a documentary of Jeanna Giese, the first person known to survive rabies, which she contracted from a bat bite. (She also just got married. Congrats to her!)
lady who buys fish to throw in pool came today :’) fuck off lady
there was a lady who came into our work weekly to buy feeder goldfish and to strike up conversation, I asked what she was feeding (and prepared to suggest other, healthier options)
turns out she was putting the fish in a bucket for her 2-year-old son to ‘play with’
after talking to the manager, we refused to serve her again
so basically chock the animal until it stops.
I’ve had to pull dogs off of each other plenty of times. They aren’t fragile. As “mean” as it is, a quick blocking of airflow will get the dog off.
Usually what I do is grab a handful of scruff instead of collar… All the dogs I’ve had to separate have alligator rolled and I’ve gotten my hands stuck/twisted in collars.
Air horns help too… We used to have them at the dog park for that reason.
Let’s be real, if my dog gets into a situation where I feel he may seriously injure another animal or a person, I will do everything I could to get him off of them. The first thing you want to use is to startle the dogs (like with an air horn) or dumping water on them since the second you put a hand or your body between a dog and their target, you risk getting caught in the crossfire. The most important thing is preventing a situation like this from occurring and I’d hazard to say that most pet dogs don’t get into fights where serious harm is done. Most dogs will back down once things get too serious and most dogs don’t attack people except in rough play. Know your dog and know their breed/genetics and be prepared to intervene before things get out of hand.
Of course, this dog is being taught to do bite work and they have to have amazing self-control to hang on and then release at the cue. I would have liked to see him call the dog off with a toy instead of manhandling him but maybe he did it for the purpose of this demonstration and that’s not how he actually trains the dogs.
