Guys are just so dumb sometimes.
In a utility closet at the back of the Insectarium in St. Louis is evidence of the growing pressure on zoos. Bob Merz, the zoo’s manager for invertebrates, pulls out a clear kitchen container that could be used for the previous night’s leftovers. Instead, it contains layers of moist paper towel covered in snails, each no bigger than a pinkie nail.
“This is their habitat now,” he said.
The partula snail was once native to Pacific islands around Tahiti, but a larger carnivorous snail, introduced to attack other pests destroying crops, has decimated the partula as well. The nooks and crannies of this zoo are filled with similar cases, many of which were begun when a conservation group, scientist or government regulatory agency noticed that the animals were disappearing, and had nowhere else to drop them off. Many are not exhibited and are believed to be among the only members of their species left in the world.
I urge you to read this article. Give back to your local accredited zoos and aquariums. It’s everyday people like us that fuel the income of zoos and aquariums and it’s important that we continue to see their importance.
I’m starting to get worried…
I feel like I’m being lied to.
It sucks when you keep telling me you need to stop talking to me for a while, and yet every time you get drunk (which seems to be happening frequently as of late) you message or text me. I like talking to you, but not like this. If you’re going to say you’ll stop talking to me, you should stick to your guns. It doesn’t make it any easier for me.
People are hurtful sometimes. Maybe it’s not always intentional, but just because they didn’t mean it doesn’t make it feel better.
I feel like there are only a few people that actually care about me right now. I believe their motives are strictly friendly. But aside from them, I feel like some people are merely putting up with me until they don’t have to anymore.
I’m still a person, you guys. I still have feelings. And right now those feelings are incredibly tender. So try to tread softly for a while, if you would. Because life isn’t always a walk in the park and when it’s not, you have to do what you can to deal with that.
Moral of the story: I’m sad and stuff.
How do you make a big ass pimple go away and stop being irritated and annoying? :[
Yeah that bitch Justin in middle school that said he’d rather be sick than go out with me. WELL FUCK YOU JUSTIN BECAUSE GUESS WHAT WHEN I WEAR MAKEUP I’M CUTE
suck it justin
You know how sometimes gifs show up on here of people dancing all crazy in public? I’m just waiting for the day when I see one and start laughing and then I realize that, hey, that’s me in that gif. Oops.
Facebook keeps crashing on me.
Also I’m going to Shedd Aquarium on Tuesday. :’)
I wanna go to Chicago. I want to go to Shedd Aquarium.
I’m so glad that Will and I are on good terms and still care about each other. In the future I hope we can be good friends again, and I know he wants that too. Until then, it’s good that we’re giving each other some space. It’s so sad, but sometimes things just don’t work out and people aren’t meant to be together. I hope he finds everything he wants, truly. He’s a great person and he deserves that.
Time for sleep and a temporary escape.
