I want to apologize for being MIA. I know all nine (9) of you have been wondering where I am and when I'm going to start vandalizing property. Well, the town of Woodbine was rocked this week by the loss of a dear friend and neighbor, and honestly it's been hard to find the motivation to do much of anything. You will be missed, Jacob "Slappy" Buck. The world may never know how much wood you could've chucked, but I'll let them know it was a whole fuckuva lot. It was a whole fuckuva LOT, WORLD!
I've had a strange work week. I intend to actually workout (starting...soon) the three days a week I'm off.. Tue, Wed and Sat. That should resume (aka: start) next week. I did make some type of progress in that I deleted every picture and many porn applications off my phone to make room for cool new low resolution photos.. or, if I'm lucky, a 2 second time lapse video that shakes violently and leaves you wondering if I know how time lapse videos work.
This newfound tabula rasa that is my lowest grade iPhone is partly the reason for the beaver pic. Other reasons I can think of off the top of my head? Don't text and drive.. this poor guy is part of a keystone species and without him the ecosystem in which he resided will be suffering for decades to come. I'm not asking you to swerve off the road to avoid smashin' a beave.. but come on, he's the size of a Labrador, I think you could see him coming if you were paying attention.
Also.. bullying is dumb and you're emotionally dumb if you're a bully. I may or may not have been called a beaver as a child/adult. And see, now you know it's dumb, 'cause I grew up to look like one of People Magazines "Sexiest Men in Alternate Universes." I congratulate anyone who's read this far for having a couple minutes to utterly waste. I will start working out on Tuesday and maybe I'll even post about it. #keystonespecies#pornoappsfordays#smashinbeaves#ninefollowers#imadeit
Elephant populations have decreased drastically in the past two centuries! There are only two remaining species of elephants in the wild. The African elephant, located in Africa, and the Asian elephants, in parts of Asia. The main reasons for their decrease is due to loss of habitat and poaching. African habitats have declined by 50% , and of the Asian habitats only 15% of the original range remains. Another posing threat to Elephants are poachers. Elephants are known for their beautiful ivory tusks and are hunted and killed for them. This is why they are protected under the Endangered Species Act, making poaching or damaging their remaining habitats illegal. It is important to conserve our species and their habitats because they play vital roles in their ecosystems 🔑 🐘 📸: @elephantsanctuary #wildlife#stoppoaching#ivoryforelephants#conservation#protectendangeredspecies#endangeredspecies#endangeredspeciesact#humanityforconservation#keystonespecies#asianelephants#africanelephant#asia#africa
"We have doomed the wolf not for what it is, but for what we deliberately and mistakenly perceive it to be –the mythologized epitome of a savage ruthless killer – which is, in reality, no more than a reflected image of ourself." -Farley Mowat
The new administration is keen on stripping protections from wolves and other vulnerable animals, harking back to the senseless days when humans hunted them to near extinction in the U.S. @defendersofwildlife are among organizations that can help keep you informed on what you can do about legislative attacks on wildlife.
Sometimes, I find exactly what I'm listening for. Today, it was the audible switch in animals, from play to panic, when a puma pads beneath them.
This is a scene from the Corcovado National Park, one of the most biodiverse places on the planet, where big cats like jaguars, pumas, ocelots, and marcays roam wild. Among the three-toed sloths, tapirs, white-faced capuchins, howlers, silky anteaters, spider monkeys, coatis, scarlet macaws, and hundreds of other birds and butterflies, I heard the jungle scream and watched a puma slink through the bushes non-plussed. And it might have been one of the coolest things I've experienced in my life.
