On the heels of what was another successful educational event at the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center here in Baton Rouge, it literally *KILLS ME* to see this posted by Kevin McCurley of NERD in response to what is now a HUGE threat to Zoos, Aquariums, and individuals like myself and my fiance who have dedicated our personal and professional lives to showing children and adults the wonders of the reptile world through safe educational outlets. THIS is why it is so important to pay close attention to what you say, what you post, and how you portray your animals! From Kevin:
“So soon?” Jheselbraum casts a look at at dimension 46’/, where Mabel Pines reaches to shake the hand of the monster they defeated only a year or so ago. “I would have expected at least a few more centuries.”
“I’m sure you know that time is relative.” The is a tone of amusement in the Ancient’s words. “It has been a lot longer than that.”
The Oracle takes that in, watching the events in Stanford’s home dimension play out, and hums in amusement, “‘A different form’,” she repeats to herself, “You couldn’t resist the irony, could you?”
The Axolotl chuckles, “Rather fitting, considering the many times humanity was deceived by him.”
Can you draw some funny Bubbline pics of Princess Bubblegum and Marceline wearing different fake animal noses each on their faces like a pig snout, an elephant trunk, a duck bill and other fake animal noses?
Hannibal’s route across the Alps been confirmed by geologists?
The Punic wars between Rome and Carthage (a Phoenician city in modern day North Africa) for dominance over the Mediterranean were the dominant theme of Roman history during its middle Republican era, and the greatest story to come down to the present day is that of Hannibal’s 15 year invasion of Italy commencing in 217BCE. He marched across Gaul from Carthaginian Spain and crossed the Alps with his entire host, including cavalry and the famed 37 war elephants, and while he won battles and lost a war (against Scipio Africanus in 202BCE, though Cathage’s final defeat and annihilation wasn’t until the end of the 3rd Punic war in 146BCE), his feat was honoured by his foes for centuries and remains on of History’s legends of great military feats.
For the first six months of my veganism, I just could not let go of zoos. I had loved them since I was a child, every school project I did in primary school was about our local zoo and the animals whose lives I followed intensely. I knew their names, how many children they had and where they had come from. Accepting zoos as the terrible places they are was one of the most bitter things I have ever had to do. And the following is the essay that finally convinced me. I have yet to see it argued as beautifully and convincingly as this, it is well worth a read.
