tumblrs message system is a bit like messenger pigeons only they’re chickens and you just kind of throw them in the direction of the recipient and hope they find their way

My tombstone will read: died like he lived, surrounded by flesh eating insects and dead bodies

Found this tiny jewel bug in my shoe just now. His skin was SO SOFT OH MY GOODNESS what a cute. Didn’t seem to mind being gently handled either.

What a cutie to find in your shoe!

SEAGULLS ARE FUCKED UP!

Many species of gull are actually predatory! Looks like it might be a Great Black-backed Gull which do actively hunt other animals and will even kill things like young sheep by pecking their eyes out. Never underestimate gulls, they are highly intelligent and are far more than mere fish eaters and scavengers!

Here’s some more videos of gull predation;
Gull eats duckling
Gull attacks and kills pigeon
Great Black-backed Gull killing a Laughing Gull
Great Black-backed Gull killing a Goldeneye
Gull eats sparrow  
Gull catches and eats 5 live bats

Yup it’s a Great Black-backed Gull (Larus marinus), largest gull in the world~

Went to the Ashdown Forest Ranger Centre today to discover tons of taxidermy pieces, furs and skulls! Here they had a variety of deer skulls, a cow skull, antlers, rat, badger, heron and squirrel skulls along with a muntjac pelivs, nests and loads of other cool things.
They also had full body taxidermy pieces of hawks, woodcocks, fallow deer and squirrels

Ashdown!!! That’s so close to me! That’s awesome. Been a long time since I went there, this room looks cool. :3 I am long overdue a visit!

Is this the Ashdown Forest in East Sussex?

workworn-hands:

Some more anomalies from the last Thames Bone Hunt - these appear to be chicken bones with spurs? 

It brings to mind such wonderful images of Cockfighting in medieval London. 

They’re so awesome!

Ooooooooooooooh

The infrastructure bill seeks to reclassify extinct species as non-native, and prevent them from returning.

Can any more destructive and regressive measures be crammed into one piece of legislation? Already, the infrastructure bill, which, as time goes by, has ever less to do with infrastructure, looks like one of those US monstrosities into which a random collection of demands by corporate lobbyists are shoved, in the hope that no one notices…
