…and this is what maceration looks like when you don’t remove the skin and flesh.
went out in the woods with these guys and found a nice moss patch to take pictures!
Dead animal warning!
Picked up a juvenile gull from the middle of the road this morning, not long after being hit. Poor beautiful baby. I also moved a fox off the road, one of this year’s little ones - she wasn’t in good shape, but I wish I could have bought her with me back to the woods. I may return for her later this week. Every Sunday seems to bring another road victim my way.
I have a thing for large gulls, and this baby is gorgeous and precious :(
Jonesy died a few nights ago </3 Missing that little ball of fur and sass, I wish I could’ve been there.
Been doodling Spinosaurus again after the new findings came out. Also since every goddamn article and video about Spinosaurus has to compare it to T. rex, have a comparison between my rex and spino. The legs are a bit bigger than NatGeo’s version after what Scott Hartman came out with. Also thought it would be neat if the sail sort of mimicked the look of river debris and dead branches so it could camouflage itself as such when trundling along through the water.
I just visited my professor’s honey bee hive yesterday! It was quite eventful, the queen made an appearance, a yellow jacket was caught trying to steal honey and was killed by workers, and i (unfortunately) found a worker with parasitic mite.
I LOVE bee suits they make me feel like an astronaut plus i can hold bees so its just a great thing all around
Mr. Bones, again. Radical Raptors. He looks and sounds like a feathered dragon and thinks Dennis Robson is his Mommy. Love this guy!
The Rose of Jericho [VIDEO] is a species of desert moss that has the amazing ability to ‘resurrect’ itself after bouts of extreme dehydration lasting months or even years. After just a few hours of exposure to moisture the plants burst to life, uncurling from a tight ball of dry leaves to a green flower-like shape. Videographer Sean Steininger shot this timelapse of several plants as he exposed them to water.
i got several pieces of good advice today, so i wrote them down.
That second one!
