You might know me from my other blog (b3lugas) or you might not, but this is where I post personal stuff, rants, or any text posts about my life, so enjoy!
I'm a sophomore in college and an Animal Behavior major! I love to talk so ask me questions here
The people on the floor above me are fucking banging around with all of their might like hello, have some courtesy for the two floors below you.
I wrote a tiny lil article on finding sustainable seafood. I was originally hoping the site would be a little less pro-cap-in-your-face and a little more mature.
Yeah no kidding, it’s so hard to take some people seriously when they are so hardcore pro-cap that they refuse to acknowledge the negative aspects of captivity. Yes it actually has its downsides. If you never recognize them, they’ll never improve and ultimately the animals lose.
My homework this week is to learn how to tell the capuchin monkeys in our lab apart.
I was told that African Dwarf Frogs only live for 2 years but I’ve had mine for 4 years now and I know that they should live at least a few more years but what the heck why would you tell someone to expect them to only live that long?
The vet said my cat is the second oldest cat she’s ever seen. He will be 16 in two weeks.
Jane Goodall is coming to speak at my school next month and I feel like I should ask her a question during the Q&A section but I have no idea what I would say
This whole Katina pregnancy rumor just brings me back to the days when people were saying Kiska was pregnant with twins after Ike’s move. People will say anything.
Getting my tattoo tomorrow! So excited!
Wait, so Seaworld is spending $10 million on the new habitats and $10 on wild research projects, right? When that number first came out I thought that wasn’t all that much as it cost $12 million to build Shamu Stadium at SWC in 1986 but I just found out Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago’s free zoo, is…
They’re also expanding the sea lion and dolphin habitats in San Antonio too but I agree that they could definitely do a lot more considering the amount of money they have.
Right but as far as I’m aware that’s not a part of “the Blue World Project” but rather something San Antonio is doing by itself and thus isn’t included in the grand total.
Yeah haha that was my point, that they are putting more of their money into other exhibits, not just that $10 million for the BWP and that they could definitely do more with it if they wanted to
No, all we can do is speculate. Kshamenk also has flatter, or more curled up flukes so there’s a possibility that it may have something to do with tank size and shape. Physically, they are using the downward stroke of their flukes with more force than the up-stroke, bending them upward.
They were like that when she was born:) not really sure if there’s a cause but that’s all i know about her flukes
Killer whale flukes at birth are naturally very flexible anyways so that they can be born without hurting their mothers but usually they stiffen up and as the whale gets older and swims more, the up-stroke bends the edges of the flukes down. Not sure why some captive whales are bent up though
