Champ, the dog

I’m told this dog looks like me.

If you don’t know what I look like, you’ll just have to imagine how I must look.

Raptorial moray eel

So I was studying for my ichthyology final which is in… Ten hours… And I came across this awesome video that my professor used in one of his lectures. And I’ve been meaning to see if I could find it online, but I forgot about it until just now. So here it is.

Watch it SHOOT OUT ITS PHARYNGEAL JAWS (secondary jaws in the throat, basically). For the record, before this no one knew pharyngeal jaws were used for capture. It’s just… Awesome!

Mame Shiba

This translation is a little iffy, but you ought to watch this, it is the best thing.

David Attenborough with Manatees

Heck. Yes.

It used to be the BBC didn’t allow embedding of their YouTube videos. BUT NOW THEY DO. And they have a really good video up from David Attenborough’s The Life of Mammals.” (Amazon Link)

David Attenborough. One of my five favorite people. Manatees. One of my five favorite animals. Oh man.

Where am I going to write my opinion that being drowned by a manatee is the cutest way to die? Because it totally is and I want to put weird things in this blog even though the real purpose is to look at pictures and stuff.

Amazon links help the site financially. Supposedly. (I’d put Amazon links to my top three favorite Attenborough series, but The Private Life of Plants has never been released on Region 1 DVD. WHAT THE HECK. The other favorite in my top 3 favorite Attenborough series is Life in the Undergrowth, which is under $20 and it is the BEST EVER OK. This disclaimer thing is far less focused than I intended.

Baby Tamandua

This baby anteater is the greatest thing I have seen in weeks.

I wish I had a scale like that, I might be less reluctant to check my weight.

Via haha.nu!

Caplin Rous, Capybara in the House

Oh man, oh man, oh man. I did not realize capybaras could be kept as pets.

Caplin Rous is a domesticated capybara living in Texas. He’s multi-talented, knowing how to sit, swim, and Twitter.

If that’s not good enough look at him as a baby.

I wish I could put title text on youtube videos because that’s the perfect place for me to hide a terrible line like “everything’s bigger in texas.”

Moose, moose, moose!

Can I keep using Physics as an excuse for not posting? Well, only one more week of it… Hopefully after that I’ll get back to posting. Kento is getting ready for some international travel, so I don’t know when he’ll be back posting. We’ll see.

Anyway, my friend sent me this video, and I just had to post it.

The music selection is odd. I wrote a song about moose once, and those who know what I’m talking about probably hate me now for bringing it up… It probably would have worked a little better for this video, besides the fact that it’s annoying and, well, I wrote it, if you can even call it writing. It’s essentially a line containing 12 words repeated over and over again.
This video is much better than my moose song though. The quality isn’t the best, and the music choice is odd, but how can you go wrong with three moose and a sprinkler?

Skimmers

These Skimmers are an interesting kind of bird. They’re notable for being the only group of birds with a lower mandible that is longer than their upper one. To hunt for fish, they fly just above the water, and open their beaks to skim their lower mandible through the sea. If it hits a fish, the beak snaps shut, it’s got a meal.

Dog, Cat, and Rat

This isn’t the kind of stuff I normally post, but it’s pretty :3

Shar-Peis

I plan to change web hosts today, if anything weird happens, that is probably why! If all goes well, there won’t be a thing to notice but faster page loads!

Edit: I’m sorry for all the trouble this has caused! I have decided to move back. I guess this was another learning experience???
