A Koala reflecting on his sins, his triumphs, and the inevitability of death.
This actually strikes me as incredibly profound. And adorable.
Like, this is something you can really do while casually eating an apple.
Man my posts have been lacking, I need to follow new blogs. Any suggestions for fitness ?
I don’t even remember where I found this gif, but it’s fucking hilarious
i hope that cool skateboard lizards is still a thing and would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that crocodilians & co. are reptiles
it Absolutely is still a thing
hey heres a cool bug
its called the spiny flower mantis - a variety of flower mantis that lives in sub-saharan africa, and grows up around 4-5 inches in length
like most mantids they go through several stages, changing their appearance gradually with each molt - from the black bodies of the newly hatched, to the thorny raised abdomen of the nymph below
until finally arriving at adulthood, where the both the females (which are slightly larger) and males feed off of moths and other insects that cant distinguish them from the flowers and foliage they live near and get their name from
but the real thing i wanna mention is their defense mechanism - when these insects are startled, they flare up their absolutely gorgeous wingspots in an attempt to scare off whatever dumb thing tried to eat this cactus bug
apparently the reaction depends on the temperment of the individual insect - breeders have reported that some of them are pretty calm, but others flash the spots at every little motion that freaks em out. i probably would too if i had giant eyes painted on my back and everything was a thousand goddamn times larger than i was
just a pretty damn cool bug overall
