looks like they do in the animes

Does a tiny sea creature hold the key to heart regeneration?

When Mark Martindale decided to trace the evolutionary origin of muscle cells, like the ones that form our hearts, he looked in an unlikely place: the genes of animals without hearts or muscles.

In a new study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the University of Florida scientist and colleagues found genes known to form hearts cells in humans and other animals in the gut of a muscle-less and heartless sea anemone. But the sea anemone isn’t just any sea creature. It has superpower-like abilities: Cut it into many pieces and each piece will regenerate into a new animal.

you seen the mlp movie trailer yet? 👀

i have now that you told me about it!

it looks pretty good! the visuals are like, fantastic. exactly what i was hoping for. i’m not sure if it’s actually totally hand drawn traditional animation, but if it’s still done in flash style they sure fooled me, it’s EXTREMELY fluid. and it seems like they’re going for a mix of hand painted and cgi backgrounds a la late era 2d disney films. it’s beautiful

hard to judge the writing from the trailer, though. trailers for animated films for kids are never really the best representations of the final films, i guess. they never have the best jokes and tend to make everything look very fast-paced and frantic. it looks like it’ll be pretty good though! i’m looking forward to it for sure

(also it does that thing every movie trailer on youtube HAS to do now where it opens with five seconds from the climax of the trailer so i was very confused to hear pinkie pie screaming as soon as i played the video)

i think it’s funny that people are getting their panties in a twist over others laughing about the fucking menace that is the ova’s art style.

yes, it is more reflective of araki’s recent style. no one’s arguing that. the point is, it does not look good animated. davidpro didn’t have to mash these two styles together the way they did, but they did, because they feel they gotta stick to accuracy above all else…. even, apparently, at sacrifice to character design. koichi looks horrifying, okuyasu looks…. not great, but they could have found a way to make it more like araki’s style without mangling them both.

Marines Ch45 Preview

It’s half finished, I’m sorry I’m so slow at writing recently

“While you’re here, Ri-flower, do you have any specific dietary requirements?" 

"Zaa, I’m allergic to peppers, but that’s the only thing I know of that’ll cause an upset. It’s not like it’s a life or death allergy, but I would end up spending the night clinging to the toilet… or the railings, I guess." 

"Do not worry, my beautiful anemone, no peppers shall pass by your lips upon my watch!" 

Grinning, Riskua finishes off the last bite of her sandwich, pillowing her chin on one hand as her elbow rests upon the table. 

"Also, I’m not a big fan of fish." 

Sanji’s look of momentary horror is a picture and Riskua wishes she could say she was joking. Meat, be it from animals or Sea Kings was exceptional stuff. But regular old fish? 

Well, she’d stomach it, but it’s not exactly a flavour she enjoys. 

“Then it’s clearly not been cooked right for you.” 

The unspoken undertone of ‘I’ll fix that’ sit heavy in the air between them.

What Would A Kim Possible Reboot Look Like? The Cast Weighs In
Christy Carlson Romano, Will Friedle, and Tahj Mowry speak to MTV News in honor of the Disney cartoon’s 15th anniversary
By Stacey Grant

There’s so much great stuff in this article but I’m not gonna quote the entire thing except this:

But what would a Kim Possible reboot actually look like?

When asked separately, all three actors said that it should pick up right where the series ended — with Kim and Ron in college. Because it’s an animated series, Kim Possible can do this, unlike recent live-action reboots like Raven’s Home and Girl Meets World, which had to pick up years later and turn their lead characters into parents in their thirties.

I was about to take a picture of a peacock but it jumped at me and chased ( I just walked quickly) for a good 10 minutes. I really wanted that photo but It was hell bent on trying to kill me... :( Why do all good looking animals have killer instincts :(

A wild peacock?!? I’ve only seen them at the zoo! You’ll have to bring bird seed or something with you next time to distract it long enough for you to get a photo. It seems like it should be more afraid of you and fly away than wanting to chase you, at least you didn’t die from being attacked by a peacock :p

Ya must be so happy cuz your blog is purple and Kakashi's new jutsu is purple 😂

Dude, I was ecstatic when I read Kakashi Hiden and learned of the Purple Lightning so I’m like ecstatic + wild flails now that I’ve seen it in animated form! So purple, plus Kakashi… I loooooooooooove it!

Still think seeing his use of it in Hiden will be more awesome, tho!

anonymous asked:

will you ever make/post more idle animations or even just poses of your taako 3d model? i really really like how it looks its super cool... makes me wanna learn how to make them

i’m planning to do idle animations for most low poly models of the same aesthetic in the future! but i could definitely try and do a few more idle animations for my Taako since he’s already rigged! i find them weirdly soothing to look at haha

poshtearex  asked:

Tell them their sword looks awesome

{[SAY]: [”Your sword looks awesome]}

To break the tension you decide to let Gestalt know how much you like their claymore.

It must be an important sword if it has a name and if it has been passed down throughout Gestalt’s family.


What Should We Do Now?

More Watertribe Lance
Also avatar Lance this time because we talked about this with friends and we are lance trash we wondered what kind of pet Lance would have if he was the avatar… Like Aang has Appa and Korra has Naga.

And we ended up with a Peacock-Lion because it just suits him perfectly

(also it was supposed to be Keith’s pet -bc yeah it’s definitely more a firenation-ish beast- but things happened ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) i’ll write headcanons someday lmao)


last episode in the anime made me think about todoroki’s past,,, this is the corniest thing ive  drawn in a while

PSA for turtle lovers

So PETA has recently posted an article about helping turtles across the road. While this sounds great, the article is loaded with nasty images of turtles who have been crushed by cars. The images are close-up, gory, and overall terrible to look at. So, for those of you out there who don’t want to see that, I’m making a post with happy pictures instead:

So turtles are amazing. I mean, look at that face

And often times during the warm months you will see turtles on the roadway just trying to get where they’re going. Unlike this little guy who’s already found the perfect spot

If you see a turtle in the road. The best thing to do is put on your hazard lights and safely pull over. watch for other cars as you examine the situation. Most turtles you come across aren’t super aggressive, so if you go to pick them up, the only thing they’ll do is this

if the turtle isn’t a snapping turtle or other aggressive turtle, simply pick it up like a hamburger to reduce the risk of injuring it, and take it to the side of the road that it’s trying to get to.

If it is a snapping turtle like this guy

or another kind of more agressive turtle, keep your distance. try to find a stick or something else you can goad it into focusing on. If you’re lucky, it will keep trying to attack the stick and you can “kite” it across the road. If not, call animal control and wait until they arrive. They’re trained to handle the situation.

In either case DO NOT take and wild turtles or tortoises home. I realize that they are incredible adorable

but you can seriously disrupt their environment and the overall population by keeping wild animals as pets. If you are looking for a pet reptile, it’s best to adopt from a shelter, or if you can’t find one, find a breeder that raises their reptiles ethically.

In addition, do not take them to a different area either, even if it’s a nearby lake in town. You could be taking it too far away from it’s home, lessening it’s chance of survival. Only take it to where it was already going.

Thank you all for reading, please share to help spread the word. Images I posted are not mine, with the exception of the sulcata tortoise hiding in the grass (That’s my shy boy).

out of all the live action disney remakes, the lion king is the one that’s pissing me off the most. i mean. this is a movie that’s entirely about talking animals. which means that there’s no fucking way this is going to be a ‘live-action’ film. it’s not a cinderella, a beauty and the beast, a mulan, or even a jungle book. they all had fantastical elements that had to be animated, but they still starred real-life actors in real sets that could actually do a live-action performance. lion king, on the other hand, will have to be entirely animated. so it will just be the exact same fucking animated movie except the animation will make the lions and hyenas look hyper-realistic, i guess. how very necessary. hooray.


“This mah squad, better move aside boy”

Instead of studying for my test, I doodle my predictions for the ep “The new Crystal Gems” while I was listening lots of We Bare Bares songs so yall better listen to this song while seing this thingie

On the topic of betta fish:

Hi, I live in Thailand (once called “Siam”).

It seems like there is a big, popular understanding about where you’ll find wild “Siamese fighting fish” aka “betta fish” in Thailand.

Apparently, the common North American (and European?) idea is that you’ll find beta fish in places like this:

I can understand this misconception, especially if you’ve never experienced what our monsoon seasons are like, nor have ever seen a rice field before… among many other things.
The fact is, you’ll never see betta fish in such tiny bodies of water. I have seen tadpoles in small puddles like these… and, in shallow gutters/”khlongs”, I have even found little guppies and fresh water crabs. But try as I might (and I have really tried), I have not once found a single betta fish in these kinds of environments.

Betta fish naturally occur in these kinds of environments:

Yes, the water can be shallow (knee-deep), but the territory is often wide, vast, and dense with soft, vertical growing foliage. The water is not stagnant like in a puddle, nor is it barren with wide open space. In this environment, a wild betta fish has many hiding opportunities.

I can only assume that betta fish do not naturally occur in small puddles (be it in the jungle or otherwise), or within Khlongs/gutters–because it is not an optimal environment for them and they cannot survive it. 
Please note that I do not, nor have ever raised betta fish. I have only looked to admire them in the wild and these are my observations. 

As someone who raises a variety of wild/’exotic’ animals, I have found it critical to the animals health and behavior–to recreate their natural environment as closely as possible, while omitting natural dangers from the set-up. 
Doing so will allow your animal to exhibit its full range of natural behaviors, and exist optimally. For you, this means being able to watch your animal preform behaviors and show off colors you might never have had the chance to see, otherwise.
I my opinion, this is much more rewarding than spending time, energy, and emotions into trying to defend a tiny, barren, and stagnant fishbowl set up.
