A trip with your Ravenclaw guide through the universe. With stops for superheroes, history, Doctor Who, Disney, Percy Jackson, Harry Potter (and Pottermore), Homestuck, Pemberly Digital Productions, Sherlock, Star Wars, Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings, Supernatural, animation, art, anime, the actual universe, and whatever else might catch my fancy.
Also considering visiting: The ass-kicking Dr. Tran to my Narrator. She's a REAL AMERICAN.
Teeth rows of a tiger shark (Galeocerdo cuvier). Often times the teeth of a shark are the only evidence of that species’ existence in the fossil record - their cartilaginous skeletons fail to preserve with the same frequency. These teeth, however, are not bone - they’re modified placoid plates; in other words, scales.
The goal of #SmallPetRespect is to encourage current and potential owners of small pets to become more educated on the animals they care for.
By tweeting facts and advice, we’ll destroy some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding the smallest of our companions.
When it comes to animals like birds (particularly budgies and cockatiels), small mammals, rodents, reptiles, fish (bettas need special mention), amphibians, arachnids, etc, many are picked up on a whim without proper prior research. Many of these animals are cheaply obtained at chain pet stores.
To make matters worse, many enclosures, tanks, cages, and habitats sold in pet stores are not suitable for the animals they are marketed for.
Many animals wind up mistreated due to ignorance and a prevailing attitude that such pets are disposable. It’s time to change that.
