Zoologist

Happy Earth Day everyone. Remember this year we march for science, so wherever you are, however you can, please get involved. Science serves us all, it protects our air and water, preserves our planet, saves lives, creates new industries, puts food on our tables, educates the next generation, and safeguards our future. We all have a voice and we can only bring about change if we band together to use it.

Dian Fossey loved gorillas so much, she dedicated her life to the study and preservation of them. In 1966 she went to live in the African jungle in order to get close to them, learn their behaviors and befriend them, while fighting off poachers who hunted them. She published articles to gain attention and support for gorilla conservation. In 1985, when she was 54 years old, Dian was found murdered in her jungle cabin. The mystery of her death was never fully resolved.

Zoologists: spiders have eight legs

Pokemon: how’s this

Zoologists: no… eight legs

Pokemon: OH sorry our mistake, how about this one

Zoologists: this is not difficult, spiders have eight legs and that clearly has four

Pokemon: damn you right okay we’ll try again, give us a few years

Pokemon: how’s this

Okay, so I feel like contributing to the Humans Are Weird section and it’s just, humans and predators get along? Like, we have mutual beneficial relationships and companionship with animals that, in theory, we should be fighting with. 

Like, we have cats and dogs as pets, some people have wolves, we see lions and tigers and think they’re cute, hell, zoologists have been raising Big Cats for years, not to mention the stories about people care taking bears. 

And if Jurassic World became a thing, you can bet your ass someone would Chris Pratt a set of pack dinos

So like, imagine that theres a race of aliens who are, by genetic script, predatory, and vicious and every alien system are like “Theres no chance at establishing peace with them, it’s impossible.” But then humans come and we stumble across a wounded one like 

“this species ?? Is adorable ?” And all the other aliens are like 

“No, human Mike, it is a vicious predator! It’s bet to just avoid the quadrant where theyre from and destroy any that come too close.” 

“You want to kill him, but he’s just a wittle cutie!” 

“ … Human Mike, stand back!” And of course the humans rally around it and force the other aliens out and slowly feed/build up trust with the species and we form a bound with them and Aliens are like ???? 

Evetually humans teach the aliens how to respond to the species and while they’re still pretty dangerous if they’re hungry and you shouldn’t turn your back on them, there’s still like, relative trust between the species. 

HEY EVERYBODY LISTEN UP

IM SORRY FOR THE CAPS IM JUST REALLY EXCITED

I SAW THIS POST EARLIER TODAY AND I JUST WANTED TO EXPAND ON IT AS A QUEER ZOOLOGIST WHO LOVES SUPERHEROS AND THEIR MUTATIONS BECAUSE I’M SUPER EXCITED ABOUT IT

THAT TODOROKI HAS BILATERAL CHIMERISM MAKES A TON OF SENSE SINCE HIS TWO HALVES LITERALLY HAVE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ABILITIES

THIS MUTATION DOESNT OCCUR IN MAMMALS BUT TONS OF CHARACTERS HAVE ANIMAL QUIRKS IN THIS SHOW SO IT’S NOT OUT OF THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY IN THIS UNIVERSE

MORE EXAMPLES:

THE THING IS THO

BILATERAL CHIMERISM HAPPENS MORE OFTEN THAN THIS BUT IT IS VISIBLE IN THIS THESE SPECIES BECAUSE THE MALES AND FEMALES HAVE MAJOR SEXUAL DIMORPHISM AND THESE ANIMALS ARE LITERALLY HALF FEMALE HALF MALE

THIS ALSO MAKES SENSE FOR TODOROKI BECAUSE HIS ABILITIES DIDN’T MIX, HE LITERALLY HALF HAS THE POWER OF HIS MOTHER AND HALF THE POWER OF HIS FATHER, SAME WITH THEIR HAIR COLOURS

CONCLUSION:

IF TODOROKI DOES IN FACT HAVE BILATERAL CHIMERISM

HE IS INTERSEX

thank for your time

Fun Fact of The Day: This dolphin here is actually using the puffer fish as a drug to induce a trance-like state. The skin of the puffer fish, in small amounts, is known to produce a narcotic effect. The behavior was captured by an award winning wildlife documentary producer, John Downer, and a zoologist, Rob Pilley, who states “Young dolphins are purposely experimenting with something we know to be intoxicating. After chewing it gently and passing it around, they began acting most peculiarly, hanging around with their noses at the surface as if fascinated by their own reflection.”

Glaucus atlanticus is a species of small blue sea slugs. These sea slugs are pelagic: with the aid of a gas-filled sac in its stomach they are able to float upside down on the surface tension of the water, where they are carried along by the winds and ocean currents. They are found in temperate and tropical waters such as South Africa, European waters, the east coast of Australia and Mozambique.
