There's no such thing as islamophobia. There is nothing irrational about a fear of islam. In virtually EVERY muslim country, women are grossly mistreated and minorities are oppressed. It is irrational NOT to fear islam.

Islamophobia is real. Muslims are real people and they’re having their human and civil rights violated by bigots like you, just for what they believe in.

Meet Ozymandias, our endangered Burmese Mountain Tortoise (Manouria emys)! Reaching weights of upto 100lbs, this unusual critter is the fourth largest tortoise species on Earth!

They are also among the most primitive extant tortoises on the planet based on morphological and molecular studies.

We are proud to be the caretaker of two Burmese Mountain Tortoises and we intend to help in Canada’s captive breeding of this species at risk. Come visit Ozy at the Prehistoria Natural History Centre in Toronto! We are open Friday-Sunday (12-6pm) at 1193 Weston rd (Weston & Eglinton).
