zoologists think that the giraffe’s pattern is for camouflage. Many
people have reported mistaking a giraffe for an old dead tree. When the
tree walked away, they realized that it was a giraffe. | photo by Shannon Greer
“We aren’t alone!” Marcus interrupted standing still, Abby looked up in surprise and would’ve nearly given a cry of fear if he hadn’t gripped her arm, for before them just coming out of the trees, taller than a giraffe; was a dinosaur. It looked like a cross between a raptor and Tyrannosaurus rex. The creature noticed the two humans standing in its way and opened its mouth in a snarl, showing gleaming rows of sharp teeth. Marcus stood a little in front of Abby protectively and she gripped his arm, terrified. “Don’t move,” he whispered, “maybe..” he didn’t finish what he was going to say for then the great beast suddenly let out a roar which gave them the reason to throw all caution to the winds and turned and ran for their lives. The dinosaur was after them and Marcus and Abby fled as fast as their legs could carry them. Ducking and dodging as they ran, the creature narrowly missed Marcus as it lunged forward but he jumped out of the way. “Look,” cried Abby, “Ahead!” Right a head, about a stones throw away, they noticed a gnarly tree with thick branches, there wasn’t much time and no other place they could run. With all his will power Marcus ran to it and jumped up grabbing the first branch of the tree and hauled himself up. Being naturally tall it was easy to swing up and over to climb, but poor Abby had the harder time of it, being the smaller of the two of getting up the tree. She had gotten no further then the second branch when the dinosaur was on them. “Marcus, help!” She screamed, he looked down from where he’d been climbing up not far above her and saw Abby’s pale face and frightened brown eyes looking at him. Shimmying downwards, Marcus was able to reach her and grabbed her hand so she was able to pull herself upwards further up the tree. The dinosaur was roaring so loudly it felt like the whole forest shook. The two got to a branch which was about fifteen feet from the ground, Abby with her back against the tree trunk and Marcus in front of her so they were sandwiched in and clung to each other for dear life.
I was repotting my succulents into slightly bigger pots because I was concerned for how cramped the post they came in were, and of course decided to do this at 7 in the evening when it was becoming dusk. And of course I decided to do this outside while not wearing shoes. So I ended up stepping on a twig shed by our thorn tree X’D which sounds lame until you realise this is a giraffe thorn tree;
I pulled it out but damn if my foot is not killing me right now D’X
Word to the wise; if you have a big-ass African thorn tree in your garden… don’t go walking around in the dark without shoes on.
Finished up some pokemon variants I attempted a while back but then abandoned for a while, but here’s some Pansage variants mixed with Nidoran, comes in two colour variations; Purple Haze and Blue Dream and then another mixed with Mawile known as the Bug Trap.
Also some sketches of a Scraggy/Scrafty variant [it’s head plant is based on an echeveria] and a Girafarig variant [based the head plant on a giraffe trees leaves a bit]
You will soon be almost a big boy growing soooo taller upper even bigger than trees, way past giant giraffes and even upper bigger than massive buildings! I think you will grow upper so big your head will hit the sky!
