I was almost devoured by a wild animal today!
I walked through the garden when I got home and I saw this little guy sliding its way down the wall. It turned its little head when I walked past, so I crouched down to take a good look. I waved my hand around slowly and its eyestalks followed it around, it was the cutest.
I put my finger by the wall nearish the snail to see what it would do. What it did was stick out its eyestalks as far as it could and kind of closely scan the length of my finger. It moved toward it and retracted its eyestalks as it went so they kept the same distance from the finger as it advanced. It was pretty cool. When it got close it touched me with its feelers and it must have decided that I was plant matter, because it then began to eat my finger.
It felt funny. Kind of like being vigorously licked by a miniature cat. Uncomfortably scratchy, but not quite painful… and really adorable. I nudged my finger away from it and it followed and just kept right on scraping at me. So I guess I’m a fairly tasty plant.
For those who don’t know, this is what a snail’s feeding mechanism looks like:
Garden fauna! :D
Taken yesterday: a tasty snack and a very well deserved break.

This is my left ankle, finally getting its shit together after a lot of physical therapy. Noticed a lot of improvement today (:
Commonly known as Weedy Scorpionfish, Popeyed Scorpionfish or the Purple Tassled Rhino Scorpionfish, Rhinopias frondosa (Scorpaenidae) is a spectacular fish, very rare, but once found, can be easily located again as they tend to stay at the same place unless disturbed.
The colors will vary but they’re generally in red, purple, orangish hues. The specimen shown is purple variation.
I wish someone had told me
Blanket statements against cis, straight, white (often male) people used to make me uncomfortable.
I hadn’t thought of it this way.

Some of them look so pissed and then you have a few that are like ‘PUPPIES’
tbh, hearing a privileged person say “we’re not all like that!” is a tip-off that i cannot trust them
if you hear about the suffering of marginalized people and your first instinct is to talk about your hurt feelings, then i know you do not care about anyone besides yourself
