Maybe someday Hunson will pose for the photo I’m after, but it clearly won’t be any time soon. 

Ughhh I loooove Phoebe. I have a male spider and he doesn't have anything on her. She's so damn gorgeous.

Do you hear that, Phoebe? You’re a gorgeous lady.

After seeing some “dragon”-like skulls going around Tumblr, let me introduce the skull of a Gila Monster. 

Their skulls are quite beautiful and almost fantastical in appearance.

photos by jeff cremer of orange julia and sulfur yellow butterflies drinking the salty tears of a tracajá turtle in the peruvian amazon. sodium is a scarce resource in the western amazon, where there is little mineral content to rain water, so the butterflies have learned to get it where they can. luckily for the butterflies, the turtles don’t much mind, despite deriving no reciprocal benefit themselves.

Feeling sorta bummed out the past few days, so clearly it’s time to cheer myself up with some photos and a blitz of layers set to screen.

1. Cole, in blue. Both babies are pretty chill but Cole even moreso, and he napped on my hand yesterday. If he keeps this up he’s destined to become a top snugglesaurus.

2. Justice, sitting near the front for food drop tonight

3. Rosalind, also in blue, will probably eat anyway like a chowhound moocher

4. An anole and a bebe spiny lizard facing off by my work window. The new house could be nicknamed Lizard Haven. I’ve stumbled over nearly stepping on an anole, two different types of skinks and a gecko so far. Ridiculous.

Things were busy last week, so this is delayed, but on July 9th Cheshire turned six. The baby pic is her at about 4 months old.
