CLYDE. WHAT. ARE YOU OKAY? WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?
More than 20,000 species of plants and animals around the world are currently under threat of extinction, and hundreds vanish each year. We don’t always know the exact time of extinction, but for the Pinta Island giant tortoise, the date was June 24, 2012.
On that day, Lonesome George—the Galapagos Island tortoise now on display at the American Museum of Natural History, and the last known member of his species—died of natural causes. With him, his species, Chelonoidis abingdoni, vanished.
Over the last two years, Wildlife Preservations taxidermy experts have worked closely with Museum scientists to preserve Lonesome George as he appeared in life—down to a missing toenail on his left front foot.
I really need to go and see Lonesome George. 8|
Imagine this: You’re sitting in your animation history class. Your professor says that your classmate who sits two empty seats away from you is going to show his animation. Joy!
Then, projected ten feet tall in glorious HD, is an autobiographical piece about his life problems and his manic pixie dream girl purple skunk girlfriend. Complete with fade to black sex. And masturbation scene.
Imagine that and you will know a fraction of my pain.
oh my god
Fox nearly complete!
Fixed up his ears, eyes, nose, lips up so that everything looks smooth. I also clay the feet and sew up the body over the last few days. He’s basically 90% complete now, leaving the finishing work left which I’ll do next week once he’s dried enough. I’ve have had a blast working on this fox and really like how he’s been coming along. Also noticed he is quite a lean and skinny fox, believe because he wasn’t a “prime” fox and that he came from one of the southwestern states.
Waiting to here back from my commissioner about possibly taking him with me to the trapper’s convention I’m going to on the 5th. I rather show off my regular taxidermy work but since a soft mount is more convenient for me to bring that I want to bring him if its okay with his owner.

I feel like I, and many other tumblr users, are pretty much experiment 625 from Lilo and Stitch
he literally has all of the same powers as stitch
He had potential to do something great. He saw what Stitch and all the other experiments were doing, but he was just like
you know what sounds good
Do you have any pictures of dogs running so fast they look like they're hover-crafts? Love your blog by the way, totally brightens my day!
Miley: “Dad I have something for Tanners bug collection”
my uncle: “that’s great”
Miley: “it’s a bird”
my uncle: “no its not”
They let it go and it flew away just fine, so we’re wondering how she caught it.
she caught another bird.
update: she caught a squirrel today
She is gonna rule the world one day with this power
