Me and my friend painted two portal murals at school.
All babies are small compared to their parents, but there is something particularly awesome about the size difference between this proud mama Galápagos Tortoise and her tiny new hatchlings, who emerged from their shells back in January 2014 at Australia’s Taronga Western Plains Zoo. This zoo became the first in Australia to successfully breed Galápagos Tortoises when RJ, the slightly larger baby you see standing between the wee hatchlings and parent, hatched three years ago.
One of the longest-living vertebrates, Galápagos Tortoises can live for over 100 years in the wild and reach weights of around 880 pounds (400 kg) and lenghths of up to 5 feet (1.5 m). They are found only on the Galápagos archipelago, west of continental Ecuador.
Head over to ZooBorns for additional photos and to learn more about Galápagos Tortoises.
i was outside eating a cookie and a saw about 5 ants just roaming around on top of the steps and i noticed there was only one ant that wasn’t holding anything like the other 4 where holding dorito bits or something and the ant seemed sad it wasn’t even going in the same pace as the other ants so i put a cookie crumb next to him and he picked it up and started running as fast as the other ants and i think i made that little ants day
Ah, Satinette Pigeon Harpy. I took forever trying to get a good silhouette that matched the real bird, but he didn’t look enough like a cute loaf of bread, so I drew another pose, but the silhouette wasn’t as strong so now you get two.
It’s because of Coelasquid and her cute pigeons that I made a beefy Satinette harpy. Also maybe I want to draw more beefy guys.
I said “oh my goodness” out loud when I saw this.
