Wreathed Hornbill_12


According to Wikipedia, the wreathed hornbill is found in forests from far north-eastern India and Bhutan, east and south through mainland Southeast Asia and the Greater Sundas in Indonesia, except Sulawesi.


Something bad must have happened in Sulawesi a long time ago so no one goes there anymore.

Red Panda_3


As it turns out, despite being herbivores (or, as humans say “vegan”), red pandas will attack animals.


These two “played” together until the chipmunk stopped moving, stuck in the fence.


I reported it to the keepers because many zoos have a policy whereby any animal that dies on zoo grounds requires an autopsy to make sure that any animal that came into contact with it wasn’t exposed to something nasty.


Sorry, not all the stories can be fun ones.

Hang there, my verse, in witness of my love:

With thy chaste eye, from thy pale sphere above

He hath much land, and fertile: let a beast be lord of beasts, and his crib shall stand at the king’s mess: ’tis a chough; but, as I say, spacious in the possession of dirt.

Geoffrey's Tamarin (Saguinus geoffroyi)_16


Sometimes the only way to deal with the monkey on your back is to take care of it until it grows up and leaves on its own.

Eurasian Harvest Mouse (Micromys minutus)_3


Getting a bit annoyed at people conflating short tempers, the inability to clearly articulate one’s thoughts, petty sniping, transparent media manipulation, racist beliefs, misogyny, poor business practices, drug use, and sexual assault with the the colour orange.


Some can’t choose how they look.
