Bird sits on a Capybara.
Against my immediate assumption, it appears to be legitimate. I’d say I was surprised, but then again this blog exists for a reason.

Onwards noble steed.

Giant girdled lizard (Cordylus giganteus), the sungazer, largest of the spiny lizards. This species is considered vulnerable by the IUCN, its numbers threatened by habitat loss and a high demand in the exotic pet trade. They are ovoviviparous - giving ‘live’ birth to one or two young only once every 2-3 years. They also breathe fire (citation needed). (at The Field Museum)

This is my model from Gloria Nusse’s forensic reconstruction workshop. We learned how to make depth markers on certain landmarks on the skull, and where the muscles attach.There are average measurements for different types of people.

Your first time is NOT supposed to hurt

You are NOT supposed to bleed

If you bleed, that is NOT your hymen being ‘popped’, it is a tear due to lack of sexual arousal and natural lubrication.

This is all a MYTH perpetrated by men so they don’t have to make sure you are comfortable and sufficiently aroused enough before you have sex with them. It is an excuse to disregard and hurt you.

I just really want women to know this.

wait…. really?

yes really

Where are people getting this information from?

Brief thesis update!

I scanned a specimen yesterday that was collected in 1917!!! Other than some scales flaking off, it is in great condition for something that is almost 100 years old. This is a Common Slug Eater (Duberria lutrix lutrix) endemic to Africa. Interestingly, this is one of several genera outside of Madagascar that are in the same subfamily as most of the Malagasy Lamprophiid snakes. We’ll see how this guy’s CT scan turns out!
