    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

    I wonder if when we're talking baby talk to cats

    if we're actually speaking in their cat language. Like, right before a cat just freaks out and starts tearing **** up, maybe it's because someone was baby talking to them, and imitating their meow, and they accidentally, unwittingly said, 'yo cat, yo mama so fat she split into...

    I miss those days as a kid

    where every day was an adventure in my back yard or my best friends woods. Some of my favorite memories were exploring the woods pretending to be explorers or running from monsters. Her cats and dogs were lions and wolves protecting us. Sticks were swords and tree forts were...

    Noreast Naturwe Boy

    When I was growing up, I lived in an area where wild life was every where. from The hawks and eagles durring the day to owls hooting at night. It was like a orchestra of nature all around me and I found that keeping my window open at night, they would lull me to sleep with...
