You sound just like someone who works for people who carry out this practice and I have even seen zoos label these animals as ‘siberian tigers’ or ‘albino tigers’. There is a lot more inbreeding than outcrossing and everyone knows it. >Because of the
There are some beautiful okapis in London Zoo! And their enclosure is often very peaceful as everyone is preoccupied with the giraffes and zebras next door:)
My aunt has one of these. Instead of being a crazy cat lady, she’s a crazy chicken lady. Has ’em as pets. She said that she felt bad eating chicken in front of them so she’s cut it out of her diet. I forget
typically poisonous animals will be brightly colored or have some distinct type of markings. Many poisonous animals will also have some sort of way to deliver their poison, like spines or big glands. This one seems poisonous since it’s kind of a bright yellow,
[Here are some sobering statistics](http://www.fathersrights.org/statistics). The point of the post was to raise similarities between the two cultures. Most people are offended when humans are compared to animals. I’m not. There is much to learn from doing so. Let’s take the Cheetah life and
Thanks for that, you miserable, disgusting, reposting, karmawhoring sack of shit. What a horrid, pathetic human being you are. I hope great harm comes to you or someone you care about in the near future. A wife or girlfriend perhaps? Maybe even a child?
Monterey bay aquarium! I took a [photo at the same tank](https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/erika_k_harada/14871067423/) Such a great place 🙂 Edit: lol formatting
>African elephants are the heaviest land mammals, with males weighing 10,000 to 13,000 pounds, and bearing tusks that can weigh up to 100 pounds each. Both males and females use their tusks for digging and stripping bark off trees. Males also use their tusks
Looks like an enactment of the old saying *”Does a bear shit in the woods?”*.
I was on the research side, and it sounds like you’re more on husbandry, so mine will be slightly different: **Employees:** The people there are awesome. Pretty fun, take their jobs seriously. It’s a great environment overall if you take it seriously and work
Played some owl calls while looking for ground nesting warblers this summer for a little bit, a few of these guys (probably a nesting pair) came around to check it out. I’d never seen an owl in the wild before, they’re pretty cool. The
From the [relevant wikipedia article](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poecilotheria_metallica): “There has never been a recorded human death from its bite; however this species is considered to have a medically significant bite, with venom that may cause intense pain, judging from the experience of keepers bitten by other spiders
Great shot. I was in the Masai Mara and Serengeti a couple years ago and captured some similar shots of cheetah cubs with their mother: * (https://www.flickr.com/photos/pbhattphotography/7956529368/) * (https://www.flickr.com/photos/pbhattphotography/7956511692/) * (https://www.flickr.com/photos/pbhattphotography/7956517368/) * (https://www.flickr.com/photos/pbhattphotography/7965225858/) (you can almost distinguish a smile on the cubs face here)
I love Bluefin tuna! I watched a documentary on them a while ago and they sometimes swim so fast they overheat and literally cook themselves to death. They’re silly.
Add 2 million years and you get [“Godamnit!”](http://scienceblogs.com/lifelines/wp-content/blogs.dir/336/files/2012/04/i-7604d9153c3a389cc78e90136e508b44-Reticulated-Giraffe-thumb-400×296-64196.jpg)
I went into a cage with one once. My friend questioned my decision to incite its predatory instincts by waving a peacock feather around.
He had a certain *je ne sais quoi* that you would never see in a common North-American fox.
They bark at anything that is different, including satellites passing overhead. They dig, that’s how the Pyrenees mountains were formed. They wander/patrol a self selected territory up to several sq kms. They make most decisions for themselves, so off leash walks in new urban

That is incredible. What astounding colors. The artist is Kyle McBurnie. He won in the [underwater photography category for amateur photographers](http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/06/pictures/130609-photography-contest-underwater-ocean-science/)
I saw something recently like this at our zoo – from afar. They are gorgeous.
Thats perfectly fine. You can just credit me as Jesselexow (if you want, thats my ig username–not a professional but have had the opportunity to take some pretty photos recently, feel free to check them out). But honestly it’s not necessary, especially if it
Beautiful photo. I wish I had the skills to replace that little red fox with [this one](http://hilobrow.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/foxx-redd-3.jpg).
Since this got way more upvotes than I expected, here’s a few more of the same animal (the first one is my personal favorite): * http://i.imgur.com/qdMbm.jpg * http://i.imgur.com/VNUvJ.jpg * http://i.imgur.com/HvyF0.jpg
