y'all should know that one of the reasons why seats are empty at sens games is because ottawa is a government town and the phoenix pay system implemented by the government of canada fucked up to the point where some employees haven’t been payed in 18 months and most of us still aren’t entirely sure when/if our next pay check will come in so spending hundreds of dollars on tickets to a hockey game (no matter how much most people love the team) just isn’t a good idea right now

(Also I got a shitton of art on it already so I mean it would b a lil bonus I suppose)
How do you like keeping arboreals as opposed to ground living snakes? Is it a lot harder?
I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily harder; it just has its own set of challenges. Arboreal snakes tend to have different issues come up regarding husbandry and enrichment–for example, when I rescued my Amazon tree boa, the guy who abandoned her said she would never perch and that’s why he didn’t want her (along with the horrible mite infestation she came with).
It turned out she just didn’t like the perches he was providing her and once I gave her something that allowed her more points of contact, she started perching during the day a lot more. Animals seldom do things for no reason and part of being a good keeper is trying to troubleshoot these problems from the animal’s perspective.
Arboreal snakes also tend to behave a little differently in regards to handling. In my experience they tend to be more alert and high strung (this doesn’t necessarily mean aggressive, it might just mean you need to pay more attention to where your fingers are moving around when you handle them to avoid startling them). Treating mites on arboreals can be a bigger ordeal since I’ve found that they’re more susceptible to getting stressed by the bathing process.
I practice what I call “husbandry handling” with my ATB because she’s a slightly nervous animal who prefers not to be handled often–however, I need to be able to do it with as little fuss and stress as possible in case she ever got sick or injured and needed hands-on medical treatment. This basically means I take her out on a regular basis and practice touching gently all over her body in the ways I might need to in order to provide medical assistance, but try to make it as stress-free and short as possible. She prefers to be a hands-off pet, and that’s fine! She’s still pretty chill for an ATB and I’m grateful she’s tolerant of husbandry handling.
Holly, on the other hand, is very laid back and doesn’t mind being handled. I’ve met CBB chondros that were much more nervous and didn’t like handling at all, so this seems to be a matter of individual temperament. She had an infected tooth last year from hitting the tongs and I was able to get in her mouth to treat it with relatively little fuss and stress for her.
This got a lot longer than I meant it to, so I guess the TL;DR version is that keeping arboreals is definitely different, but not necessarily harder if you have the experience and resources to do it properly. I’ve only kept chondros and Amazon tree boas though as far as arboreals go so that’s about all I can speak for.
finally got a chance to work at this yet again!! im not very happy with the background and a couple other things, but i think i can safely call this done and put it away! i may tweak some stuff in the future, but for now this is it! @therealjacksepticeye ‘s playthrough of this game was way too good to resist drawing a piece for it!
I'm!! So!! Conflicted??? The feligette in your universe has such great build-up so far but bridom is so cute/pure?? My multishipper heart is torn towards which endgame I'd like to see pan out more. OTL
Lately in quickplay when I’ve been playing Mercy, I’ve been making sure to wave at enemy Genjis when I can.
All last night, I did this, and I was so so pleased to hear the enemy Genjis in different matches wave hello back. Even spared my life a few times (not that I’m trying to seduce enemy Genjis to spare my life, mind you, I understand it’s a star-crossed lovers sort of situation).
Of course this doesn’t work with every Genji player, and I don’t expect it to. But it’s so fun to be in the middle of a teamfight, wave hello to a Genji, and hear “Hello!” Greetings.“ “Yo!” Makes my shipper heart soar :’)
I’m not anti-overwatch. I just really hate blizzard kiss-asses who decided that it’s okay for them to bully a much smaller community AND company.
Blizzard is one of the top gaming companies with thousands of workers. Gearbox has like 300 or something. They only have a small dedicated following. Everyone else who buys their games just insults them and treats them like shit to get them to release the next game. Every post they make on social media is littered with unnecessary vile behavior.
Next time you unnecessarily compare Battleborn and Overwatch by beating up Battleborn for no fucking reason, just remember that you’re also contributing to the actual bullying that people participate in when it comes to people who are working on the game.
