    I've had ~~ I'm absolutely fearless when it comes to animals, and especially bugs. Spiders, worms, bees, I'm ok with anything. I pick up all the little things that make my classmates shriek, and throw them outside - catch and release, that's my motto. The property I lived on...

    Caretakers

    We humans were put here on Earth to be the caretakers of Nature and animals and all that live and breathe. I feel all in all, that we humans have done a great harm to our land and animals. We... most humans,  don't give it a second thought ... about what is best for...

    I found this little friend on the back steps

    when I was letting my dogs in early this morning. Cicadas are so beautiful, and they always make me think of my mom. She was also a nature lover, and I feel blessed that she instilled this in me and my sisters. I remember her showing us the intricate and delicate wings of the...

    Ribbon Eel..... Ummm Lovely...

    This is a ribbon eel, and it has a pretty unique life cycle.Each individual starts out black and male, and when they mature they turn bright blue and yellow and develop female sex organs. They start producing eggs once they reach around 1.3 metres long

    The moment you feel really down,

    wondering if there's a way out of this mess and hoping for some sign from someone, and at that moment a morning dove flies down and lands within a foot from you and just chills for a bit before taking of again. Thanks God! You are amazing

    Baby sea turtles are the bravest animals alive,

    they have to struggle and fight to get to the sea before the sun baked there tiny unprotected body, they have to survive vicious birds to get to the ocean, once they make it in the ocean they have to fend for themselves to reach maturity. We humans are a lazy, spoiled species
