Dolphins, Birds, and Prehistoric Things.
Hello! My name is Morgan, and I am an animal biology undergrad from Green Bay. I reblog a variety of different animals, but I have a particular fondness for cetaceans, birds, and anything that is extinct. Feel free to send me an ask if you have any questions! Background image by Cryptovolans.

Dinosaur Island is an upcoming family movie about a young teenage boy who finds himself stranded in a strange land with artifacts, people, and animals from throughout time. This means, of course, there are dinosaurs, and they are colorful and feathered — including the T. rex.

The newly released trailer projects a bit of a Land of the Lost or Mysterious Island vibe, with sly references to Jurassic Park and even Godzilla mixed in. And the dinosaurs really look good. Check out the official trailer below:

San Juan 7/16 set - with Maya again (actually got to meet him and his naturalist Jeanie, the “TMZ of the Southern Resident world” lol), best watch so far. There was a crazy amount of activity - slapping, breaching, rolling and rushing around. We were ‘mugged’ by the orcas several times during the excursion. Mostly L and K-pod members again, with the exception of Mike.

Orcas featured are Mike J26 (second row), Nigel L95 (sixth row), and Surprise L86 and possibly Pooka L106.

#animals#mammals#cetaceans#love the eyepatch on the first one

Fur

Imagine walking out on a lovely day and stepping into a painful trap that cuts through your skin, and through bone

then imagine being terrified, so then a human comes along and takes you, probes you analy with a electric probe, electrocuting you so you’re stunned, then starts beating and skinning you alive

Just imagine that before you buy fur! its nasty, inhumane and for our vanity. just buy fake fur! its kinder and no harm done to poor animals. 

ITS ANIMAL ABUSE 

Wait what? If you really believe any of that rubbish then it shows just how ignorant about fur production you really are.

Why on earth would anyone need to electrocute, beat AND skin an animal alive? Killing an animal is a very simple and easy process when you know what you’re doing. You know how trapped animals are typically killed? A bullet to the brain or vitals. Quick, clean and the animal is rendered instantly dead. Traps also don’t cut through skin or break bones. If they do then it is an illegal poachers trap. Modern traps have been specially designed so that they do not harm the animal in any way, with special features such as padded jaws and swivels in the chain that allow the animal to twist and turn freely. Here is a trapper demonstrating how leg-hold traps work. You’ll find trappers will often test the traps out on themselves to ensure they wont cause harm. 

As for skinning alive, it does not happen. Period.

#thank you!#it's one thing to be against fur/trapping but seriously#STOP SPREADING MISINFORMATION it just makes you look stupid

New design set! My first collection of “Paleontology Fanciers” designs is available for purchase - prints, stationery, shirts, kids’ clothes, and stickers. If they do well, have a few other cool ideas as well.
