Meet Sprite, the Sch.noodle! (Sch.nauzer X Po.odle). He’s now fully articulated! He isn’t 100% perfect (scapula a little far back, kneecaps too high, ribs a little wonky) but I’m honestly so proud!! I hope you guys like him. When I get the time ill be adjusting his scapula and bring the legs a bit more forward. He’ll be coming to uni with me in September!! 

The pressures which force young working-class Muslim men into the arms of jihadi recruiters are exactly the same pressures which force young working-class white men into the arms of the supremacist far-right.

Instead of becoming willing dupes in the war between rival elites, we need to join together and take collective action to solve those common economic, social and political issues on the terms of workers as an indivisible whole.

European Hedgehog Skull 

A pretty unusual skull in my opinion. It’s crooked. Not sure if that’s normal or not but my assumption is that its just a little deformed. Hes almost exactly the size of my fox squirrel skull. 

You can see a few sore spots on my hands from trying to skin it. They are a lot more spiky than the little pet hedgehogs.

Ridge - Roadkill to shelf

WARNING !! This post contains photos and descriptions of dead animals, skinned animals, decomposition, maggots, and the general gory details involved with cleaning up bones.

I’ve gotten a couple asks about the methods I use to clean bones, so I thought I’d put together a quick summary of the journey of my female Badger, Ridge, from road to shelf. It’s not really a tutorial, but I have almost kind of written it like one - keep in mind this is just Ridge’s personal cleanup journey, and all the steps she went through while being processed (it’s pretty similar for all my roadkill though) It’s a bit garbled and I haven’t really clarified anything… Hm. Maybe I will put together a proper tutorial in the future. For now, this is Ridge~

The birds! Mostly shorebirds from the beaches. 

Its crazy to think that back when I lived in the US it would be highly illegal to own even a single one of these skulls. I think I’m binge collecting all the birds I find just because I actually CAN now. 

MBTA is such a waste. There should be at least SOME exception for salvaging natural death animals instead of having to have specimens destroyed that could otherwise be valuable for science or education.
