that's a gorgeous photo, has a weird feel to it, kinda like old paleoart maybe? it's strange seeing new world monkeys faces, just that little bit more different from us than old world monkey faces. great shot, amazing lighting and colours.

Hey there I hope someone could help me with identifying what these little green balls on my rocket salad are. They’re about 1-2mm and darkish green in colour. Picture attached. I live in Austria if that helps.

Update. Seems like 2 or 3 of them still hang out in a tight space of the roof window. I wonder why, I image that queen left and these are stragglers? Kind of feel bad about them.... I wonder how long will they stay there, will they just starve?

I'm going to post a platypus in this thread every day until all of /an/ wants to snuggle a puggle.

>Sirocco's preference for head-mating and resistance to massage techniques has made it difficult to collect his semen. Scientists who work with him designed an "ejaculation helmet" for volunteers to wear while he attempted to mate with their heads. The dimpled, rubber headgear was ineffective due to the duration of the kakapo's mating period and was later donated to the Te Papa museum in Wellington.

spent some time in mojave, saw a lot of hares
what struck me was their eyes, they constantly look terrified
and it occurred to me how a very likely (most likely?) death for them is to be caught and consumed alive by a being that has zero sense of its suffering
and further, that this is how many beings (most beings) are killed

These threads always give me the fucking willies. Most people have no clue how incredibly brutal the natural world is; people point to torture and cannibalism and shit among humans and go "wow, how horrible" but being impaled while slowly eaten alive by something the size of a tree or being swallowed whole or being liquefied from the inside out or having eggs laid in you a la Alien is so much worse than anything that humans do to each other.

Typically its too much stress. Ideally they get used to their new digs for a week or so, but if it ate then probably alright

>they spend most of their time with their brain on powersave mode because they are autistic vegan carnivores
What if someone took a baby panda and raised it on a diet typical of other bears? Would it be normal and act like any other bear, and teach its offspring to eat meat too and enhance the panda species?

Thousands of nuclei, which makes it multicellular if you ask me.
>>
>>3453607
But only one cell wall which makes it single-celled.
Break the wall, whole organism dies.
