Why are there no flightless bats?

I discussed this in a lot more detail in my article on the pekapeka (a bat from New Zealand that spends about half its time on the ground), but in general, here are the reasons:

1. Compared to other flighted animal groups like birds and insects, bats are relatively new on the scene evolutionarily. They evolved flight about 52 million years ago. Compare that to birds, which have had about 150 million years to get comfortable with flying- only a few have ever lost it in that time.

2. Flying is a powerful antipredator defense and allows bats to get at resources they wouldn’t normally get, like flying insects and high-hanging flowers and fruit. This means there is currently strong evolutionary pressure for bats to retain flight in most parts of the world. One example where there was not was New Zealand (until recently). Even then, the pekapeka and its relatives retained the ability to fly.

3. Compared to birds, bats may simply be too specialized for flight to go back to being completely terrestrial. All living bats have modified hindlimbs and pelvises for flight, because their legs actually make up part of their wings.

It may be difficult to tell from that picture, but a bat’s hind legs are rotated at 90-180 degrees (depending on the species) around from where an ordinary mammal’s would be. In other words, their knees point backwards.

(This is different from a pterosaur, by the way- pterosaurs had wing membranes that attached to their hind limbs as well, but retained forward-pointing knees.)

This makes walking on the ground very difficult for them, and is related to why they roost upside-down. (In fact, some species of bats CAN’T walk on the ground at all!) Even when bats have regained the ability to be good walkers, like the vampire bat has, the style of locomotion is very different from all other living animals, like so:

It’s not a BAD way to get around, but energetically, it’s not as efficient as regular quadrupedal walking.

So, for a bat to “de-specialize” from flight completely might require extreme evolutionary pressures that don’t exist on earth right now. Not that I don’t think they could do it- but a flightless bat would end up looking really, really weird, compared to the mammals we’re used to.

Scrabble Jr.’s internet debut!!!

While many an internet friend has already met this spectacular little danger noodle, I have yet to put her on tumblr or within the realms of Snakeblr. This is Scrabble, my little 7 week old Western Hognose. 

This little glorified worm has the spunkiest personality of any legless chordate I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Named after the illustrious @scrabblezard, Scrabble Jr. has already won the hearts of many a reptile lover with her curiosity and pizazz. 

I’m pretty sure I picked the best little snek in existence. 

It’s a stupid fluffy parody I drew in RUN era(hence the hairstyle) and after a long struggle I just gave up the translation hahahaha. It was 1000 days anniversary and now It’s 3rd year anniversary!
I can’t write so it’s not a fanfic but just notes of random ideas.
Very special thanks to dear @art-blisters for helping me translate all text!!TOT You’re my angel FOR REAL.

…the basic law, the inherent tendency of each individual, is toward that total transformation of himself from the limited entity that he believes himself to be, to that which he really is in essence, i.e. a transcosmic, extra-terrestrial and - ultimately - ultra-dimensional /absence/.

Dragons

A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that appears in almost all cultures around the world.

Dragons In Slavic Mythology 

  • East Slavic Dragons have three heads, green, walk on hind legs and spit fire.
  • South Slavic Dragons have a division on what they call them, but basically they are the same creature. They are considered intelligent and wise, possess superhuman strength and are proficient in magic. Aside from breathing fire, they are also known to lust over women with whom it can produce offspring. In Bulgarian and Serbian folklore, these dragons were seen as defenders of crops and fighting against a specific demon – Ala, whom they shoot with lightening.
  • Their abilities vary depending on location. Some believe the east slavic dragons can re-grow their heads if chopped off. They exhale fire, which is dangerous to anyone in the way. Their enormous size makes them just as deadly.

Behind the legend of the downfall of medieval Serbia, lie fairy-tales about a good dragon who failed to save his people from the hands of the malevolent Ala, or Azdaha.

Thus, the Ottoman conquest and the famous Kosovo Battle of 1389 resulted in a battle not only fought by people, but by dragons as well.

According to oral tradition, the participants of the bloody battle became semi-gods, mythical creatures whose dragon origins often appear in folk tales and epic poems.

Serbian cultural expert Sreten Petrovic, through his books, has attempted to prove the existence of a dragons “pantheon” in Serbian medieval culture, called the “Jastrebacki panteon”.

This Pantheon was crowned by the Jastrebac Dragon, Zmaj od Jastrepca, and included various heroes from Serbia’s medieval epic poetry.

Many legends and folk tales in Serbia feature these lusty and brave dragons, which defended Serbia’s skies and lands from the Ottomans, and from bad weather as well.

  • The natural habitat of Serbian dragons was typically considered to be on mountaintops, such as Jastrebac near Krusevac, rivers, mountain streams, or the woods. Many of these places still bear the name “Zmajevac”
  • Zmaj’ (meaning dragon) was a title given to the most fierce and powerful warriors in Serbia and other South Slavic countries.

Dragons In Norse Mythology 

Norse mythology, in general, is dark and tragic, like the cold and icy wastelands the Norse traversed. Whether on land or sea, the Vikings were threatened by dragons.

Dragons are a central part of Norse mythology, as are those who battle them.

The Vikings believed in this structure of their universe to be the nine worlds and in the great cosmic tree, Yggdrasil, which held all things together. Norse mythology taught that dragons were under the ground and at the bottom of the ocean.

To the Norse, dragons and serpents were the same creatures and not differentiated. Viking mythology is largely based on tales of the sea as they were seafarers, and dragons were commonly found in many aspects of their lives.

Dragons were often carved on the bows of ships to protect the seafarers. These sea-serpents were symbolic of the Viking prowess, and were used to heighten the berserkers sense of self, and to frighten potential opponents. The dragons on the bows of their ships were also believed to scare away the serpents in the depths of the ocean.

Dragons In South American Mythology 

Close to Mexico City are the pyramids of Teotihuacan.  They are carved with many things – including a dragon called Quetzalcoatl.

Quetzalcoatl was not an evil dragon. He was the ancient cultural hero among the Aztec, the Toltec and other Meso-American peoples.  He taught them how to write and explained agriculture to them.  He introduced the calendar, monotheism, music, dance and so on – in essence he civilised them.

The Maya knew him as Kulkulkan, and the Quiché called him Gucumatz.  The same god appeared in Zuni rituals as Kolowisi and a Hopi ritual named him as Palulukong. All of these have the same meaning: “plumed serpent”.

In his dragon form he ruled the wind, the rain and the fertility of the earth, the cycles of human sustenance. As a celestial and terrestrial being he was man’s magical connection to the mysteries of heaven and the sacred earthly realm.

Quetzalcoatl was an integral part of the creation of each of the worlds/cycles/suns of the Aztecs.  The fifth age was initiated by Quetzalcoatl in 3,113 B.C. and is due to complete its cycle on Dec. 21, 2012.  Just prior to the age of the fifth sun, Quetzalcoatl created man by going to the underworld and retrieving the bones of an earlier human incarnation.  On his return journey he stumbled and fell, breaking the bones, and therefore the resulting people came out in all different shapes and sizes.

When he was driven away by war he promised to return to his people one day. Some accounts have him leaving in a dragon boat or on a raft of serpents.  Some believe he sacrificed his human body and flew off into the sky to become the bright planet we know as Venus

Dragons In Japanese Mythology

Japanese dragons are similar to those of China, but are more serpentine in shape, have only three claws on each foot, and fly less frequently. The reason why they have three toes/claws is because the Japanese believe Eastern dragons originated in their native homeland. Their belief was that when the dragons began to leave Japan, they gained toes. The further the dragons went, the more toes they gained. Which explains why the Chinese and Korean dragons have more toes.

The most familiar type of Japanese dragon is the Tatsu or Ryu, which is a descendant of a primitive three-toed variety of Chinese dragon. Japanese dragons are traditionally associated more with the sea than rain. This is because Japan is less vulnerable to drought-related disasters as compared to China. Therefore they didn’t feel the same need to pray to rain-releasing dragons.

The Ryu originated from Buddhist religion and is one of the four divine beasts from Japanese mythology (the other three being the phoenix, turtle and kirin. Kirin is the Japanese unicorn). It is frequently the emblem of the Emperor or the hero.

The dragon is chief among the ideal creatures of Japan. It is seen carved upon tombs, on temples, dwellings, and shops.

Facility Tour Master-post

Enclosed below is the official tour of my giant-friendly and tiny-friendly facility, Mute Labs!

Just wanted to say that I was blown away by the amount of interest generated from the sneak-peak yesterday!  Really appreciate it, especially considering my inconsistent activity in the community as of late ^^; I’m hopeful that the interest was from the concept itself and not from the…I think, misconception that some people had that the ‘world-building’ involved was linked to this project of mine becoming a video game…cuz it’s not, sad to say >.> Just a fictional community with which to link future g/t fluff shots and innovative ideas ^u^

As always, I’m open to ideas and questions!  Hope y’all enjoy!

Jim Sullivan mysteriously disappeared in March 1975 just outside of New Mexico. His car was later found abandoned but containing money, clothes and his guitar. Also, the motel room he was staying in at the time was searched by police but no clues or traces of evidence that could aid them in their investigation were uncovered. Some believe he may have fallen victim to a killer whilst travelling alone, while others maintain that Jim became the subject of an alien abduction. Strangely enough, he had released an album titled ‘UFO’ in 1969, on which he references highways and extra-terrestrial beings. His whereabouts or fate remain unknown.

Team Adorable

I was chatting with  whatisthisidont-even last night and we decided the ultimate DC Dream Team would actually be Virgil Hawkins (Static Shock), Tim Drake (Robin), Jaime Reyes (Blue Beetle), and Traci 13. 

Hear me out…

Tim Drake: The team leader. The biggest genius nerd-boy ever. Insane intellect and field experience. Former leader of Teen Titans for a bit. Batman’s best detective prodigy. Natural busybody. Knacks for getting in trouble. Shenanigans. Saving the day with everyday smarts and occasional ass-whooping and hacktivist bullshit. In another universe he goes to uni like he wanted to and meets up with a pack of weird genius boys. In true Tim Drake fashion, he forms up a team of genius badassery to… be in a study group basically. They still save the world tho because it’s Tim Drake and its what he does.

Virgil Hawkins: The support. MENSA level genius boy with class A electric meta-human chops. Been fighting street crime since high school. Ran with the Teen Titans for like two minutes before using his brains to do shit like solve problems with technology and stuff. His buddy Gear and him basically engineered their way into the same university think-tank as Tim. Still does super heroing part-time and on the Teen Titans and JLA tag-in roster. Meaning only call him if its fucking serious. Friends with Jaime. They’re lethal as a Blue Beetle/Static team up. 

Jaime Reyes: The team muscle. Regular kind of really smart. Self-taught super heroics and literally classed as one of the most dangerous extra-terrestrial beings on the planet. Low key tho. Only JLA that’s paying attention knows that. Happens to have a hyper-intelligent weapon of mass destruction wired into his his brain and sometimes it screams advanced quantum physics at him until he corrects his professors. Met Virgil during a quick team-up with Teen Titans, met Tim by pointing out his math was wrong on a theoretical physics paper. 

“This is theoretical.”

“It’s still wrong and it’s not theoretical, cabron.” 

Traci 13: The weird-o-factor. Paranormal Detective extraordinaire. Literally, she is a magical detective. She solve magic mysteries. She’s the team’s expert in all things demonic, paranormal, or illogical. She tends to just appear in the middle of things and demand everyone’s attention because some horrible monster is running amok in Shanghai or something. 50% of their adventures are helping Traci fight magic crime. She’s dating Jaime and consults Tim on detective work from time to time. Mostly likely to blow someone up with magic. Constantly in trouble. Loves it. 


TOGETHER THEY FIGHT CRIME… or actually its a slice of life comic where they occasionally journey to hoary nether realms with Traci and talk about how to solve global problems with affordable sustainable technology. 90% of the comic is about Traci building them a floating cottage and trying to convince Jaime to live in it and then battling the monster infesting the shadows under Traci’s bed.

Guest stars: Superboy and the various Robins to poke fun at Tim and eat all his cookies. Gear to scream at Virgil about the robot army he’s building in his basement. Jaime’s whole goddamn family. The various supernatural beings that like Traci and live in her shoes. 

GODS OR ALIENS ?

These sumerian statuettes, from the Temple of Abu, Tel Asmar, c. 2700 - 2600 B.C., Iraq Museum are representations of sumerian gods.
Look at those big black eyes!
And notice that not all of them have the same caracteristics

. Some are normal.
There are also strange looking creatures with no human caracteristics at all.
Now, was this only artistic expression? Why were the sumerian Gods depicted like this? Could they be extra-terrestrial beings?
