white tipped tail

Cute alert! A baby mule deer tries catching a snowflake on its tongue at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Colorado. Mule deer are named for their oversized ears that resemble a mule’s ears. Compared to its cousin, the white-tailed deer, mule deer are larger in size, and have a black-tipped white tail and white patch on the rump. Photo by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.


Not the best pictures, but here is another poor little kitty that I found hit, this one on the side of the highway; he was an intact male and seemed to be fairly young, probably born this year. I find his colouring really beautiful with the brown tones from the sun bleaching his fur and that precious white tail tip.

 I skinned him out a few days ago and noticed something that I hadn’t seen when I picked him up- a weird tiny deformed toe! All of the bones in that toe are shortened and connect lower on his foot than normal, and the nail is thick and warped (I doubt it could retract.) His name is klavier, and his spirit seems to be calmed by music.


I couldn’t resist… I’m not sorry either… 

I’m not explaining why this happen and why I spent weeks working on this shit post. It just happened, okay? And I kinda wanted to imagine myself being hugged or cuddled by Sasster but whatever… I also forgot to add my blue with white tip tail but lets pretend I didn’t, alright?

This is the longest comic I have made and it’s non other then GenSter as @stealthnerd is calling it now… I guess it’s an official ship now so I guess that means I have an excuse to draw it…??? Maybe??? 

Anyway, I hope you like it, Stealth! I put my heart and soul into it to my surprise… I guess I do love the salty son of a gun… heh heh… 


got a special pup today, a little western grey fo.x with a white tipped tail! i’m not quite sure how rare that trait is, but i’ve only seen it a handful of times myself out of all the greys i’ve seen so it’s unique enough to me that i had to have her haha

she also gave me a chance to test out the skinning gambrel i just got, and man i don’t know why i didn’t get one sooner. i already knew that it’s way easier to skin when you can hang em up but i just never bothered to get one until now. it’s so much better than flopping the body around on a table


I’ve been getting a few messages about the differences between the canines featured on this blog. Though I plan to make detailed pages of each species in the future, here’s a little info on each species.

Side-striped jackals (Canis adustus) are characterized by a white or silver marking running along their sides, as well as a long, white-tipped tail. They’re the larger of the two ‘true jackal’ species, and the most widely distributed of the two. They’re extremely shy creatures and primarily dwells in woodland and scrub areas opposed to their cousins on the open plains. Side-striped jackals eat less meat then their cousins, fruit accounting for nearly 30% of their diet in rural areas.

Black-backed jackals (Canis mesomelas), also known as silver-backed jackals, are the world’s oldest living canine species, dating back to the Pleistocene. Like side-striped jackals, black-backed jackals are monogamous and tend to live in small family groups. Though commonly depicted as scavengers, black backed jackals have been know to hunt larger prey such as impala and springbok. They also display sexual dimorphism, with male black-backed jackals having darker, more graphic saddles than females.

Though commonly referred to as the Golden jackal, Canis aureus is closer related to wolves. They are able to produce fertile hybrids with dogs, gray wolves, and African golden wolves, while the side-striped and black-backs can only breed with their respective species. This small but adaptable canine is found in Africa, Europe, and Asia with many various subspecies. They are commonly depicted in Indian and English folklore, including a golden jackal named Tabaqui from Rudyard Kipling’s, The Jungle Book.

The African golden wolf (Canis anthus) is the newest canine species to have been discovered. Golden wolves exist in a variety of shapes and sizes depending upon their environment, from the stalky Egyptian wolf subspecies, to the lean Serengeti wolf which greatly resembles coyotes and jackals. They were considered an African variation of the golden jackal until 2015, where a series of analyses on the species' DNA demonstrated that it was in fact distinct from the golden jackal.

Lupus Draconis Field Guide

Quick rundown of the LDs: They eat a LOT, anything high-energy, and can digest rotten meat/bone. They hold huge territories alone or in pairs.

They can breathe fire, and use it for aerial, distance, and nighttime communication. The gaseous fuel for their fire comes from digestion.

Desert: Large size, short fur, big soaring wings. Extra plating to reflect sunlight. They search from the air for prey in burrows, then dig.


Forest: Small, fox-size, short wings. They live/hunt in packs, and have white-tipped tails to signal each other. Can climb trees to eat eggs.


Arctic: Large and flightless. Their small wings fold underneath a heavy mantle of fur. Primarily scavengers, they share kills with bears.


Swamp: Medium size, shaggy sloth-like fur. They use their wings to make themselves buoyant and wait in the water for prey to come close.


Cenote Diver: They fly from cenote to cenote and fish in the water. Long necks and long faces for lunging. The only LDs that can hover.


Coastal: They dig out burrows on/in cliffs. Small body, largest wings, they ride air currents and skim for fish. Pelican-like throat pouch.


Domestic: A very high-class pet, but expensive and impractical. Imagine if you had a cat the size of a dog. They knock -everything- over.

Our Little Family

AO3 Link: Our Little Family

Gabriel hummed softly as he fixed breakfast for himself and his mate. His tail flicked slowly and his ears twisted towards the stairwell where he could just faintly pick up Jack’s purr from their cubs’ bedroom. He smiled as he picked the tray up, heading up the stairs to where his hungry mate was waiting.

Muddler Minnow step by step

Don Gapen invented this legendary pattern for the Nipigon river in Canada. It was supposed to imitate Cockatush minnow which is a sculpin and called a “muddler” in parts of Wisconsin. The muddler wasn’t supposed to be that type of firm and clinically cut that we like today but rather sparse and long. Customers seemed to prefer the look of the shorter cut tighter heads and the fly evolved accordingly. You might want to try it with a more original head too for fishing as it will have a very different type of movement and sinking rate. The version tied above is just according to my personal preferences, cut to a symmetrical cone and packed pretty dense but not too dense to still keep it soft.

Hook: #2-10 3X Streamer hook.
Tail: Mottled Brown Turkey wing.
Rib: Oval Gold tinsel.
Body: Flat Gold tinsel.
Wing: Natural white tip Squirrel tail and Mottled brown Turkey wing slips on top.
Head: Natural Deer hair muddler style. Stack the tips of the first bunch to form a neat collar.



So I arrived home close to midnight, and lo and behold EVERYONE WAS HAVIN THEIR BABIES RIGHT NOW

Socks and Chiapas made a grey little BOY with white feet, tail tip, and brown eyes. I named him Friheten.

Cortadito’s baby is a brown BOY with black feet, one black ear, a black tipped tail and brown alley cat eyes - which I’m not actually very fond of right now, but we will see… I named him Pike.

Pernod’s baby of her true love, is a little grey BOY with dark grey socks, a white chest patch, a white tail tip, and blue alley cat eyes. Hrm. Well I named him Ace.

Lastly, Macchiato’s baby is a little grey BOY like his father, with blue eyes and white socks. I named him after one of my favorite guitarists Rowland and I would have kept with the coffee-absinthe themes but I wasn’t expecting so many boys and the other names I had in mind didn’t fit.

The mothers and fathers are all fascinated with each others babies, hissing a lot as well, out of protection I guess; and I brought Yukon out as well, to be a butch surrogate mama! I kinda am thinking of breeding her with Skiftebo, just to see if I can get a dark persian baby. But I’ll wait on that, because I have so many BABIES ALREADY

But I’m so happy, they’re all so adorable!!!!

I just noticed something. A normal vulpix is orange/red which is the lower flame temps and Ninetales is yellow/cream with a little orange which resembles higher flame temps.
A shiny Vulpix is yellow and orange which is hotter than orange and red and the shiny version of ninetales is silver/white with blue-tipped tails and blue and white are the hottest temps - immeasurably, unimaginably hot.

RAVENPAW is a small, sleek, skinny, jet-black tom with a tiny white dash on his chest, a long, thin, white-tipped tail, a torn ear, and amber eyes.

• He still believes in StarClan, even though he is a loner

• Ravenpaw and Barley are a very committed couple

• His littermate is Dustpelt, though Dustpelt did everything he could to deny that he was related to Ravenpaw
