Other hikers warned us that there was a #RattleSnake on the trail. We thought we passed it until we found it eating another #snake. Luckily it was busy having its meal… but the 2nd time we hiked back from Little Yosemite it crossed into the other side of the trail where I didn’t see it. Thanks Naisa for pushing me out of way! U pretty much almost saved my life :P 😵💥 // LittleYosemite #HikingSanctuary #nature #outdoors #hiking #Sunol @mariel_alyssa @walasian (at Little Yosemite)

Actually this is a very good example of ophiphagism in the wild. And this is not a rattlesnake eating another snake, but rather this is a king snake eating a rattlesnake.

It’s sad to see another snake get killed and eaten but this is completely natural. Kingsnakes love to chow down on other snakes and they are nonvenomous.Kings are amazing.

I may look into antidepressants in the near future because it’s becoming more difficult for me to become self-motivated and focused recently.

But in other news!
…I forgot what I was going to say.

So what are your thoughts on sites like BHB Reptiles, since you are against Petco and the like.

snake-time:

We, as reptile enthusiasts, promote the captive breeding programs of businesses like BHB Reptiles, mostly because it takes a large stress off of the wild populations of many species. The difference between snake breeders and chain pet stores is that the breeders are highly specialized. Where as the knowledge of the chains is very basic.

We also see that the breeders like Bryan are extremely passionate about what they do, even if it is a business. Chains stores solely care about profit, buying cheap wholesale (low quality, sometimes wild caught) animals and selling with huge mark up. Its also a known business plan to sell animals as a hook for future business. Generally, they’ll sell you the animal without any forethought, just so you can come back and buy the supplies. Chains don’t do much to help the reptile keeping hobby.

Basically, chain pet stores and reptile breeders aren’t even in the same league. There is no use in comparing them.

So, real talk for a second guys

If you ever accidentally call 911, DON’T HANG UP.  Stay on the line and tell the calltaker that you accidentally dialed.  When you hang up, we either have to call you back or send out police which takes up valuable resources and wastes money.  A simple “It was an accident” is all we need and everyone goes about their life much better

this is tru

i know because i prank called 911 when i was 5

REALLY just wanna take this chance to remind the people who follow me to not kill/trap opossums if they’re in your yard, and do not call animal control! Seriously.

  1. Opossums are literally 100% BIOLOGICALLY INCAPABLE of carrying rabies. Their body temperature is too cool to incubate it properly.
  2. Opossums are actually quite gentle and NOCTURNAL, so if they’re roaming, they’ve probably gotten lost, been injured, and are looking for a place to hide.
  3. Young opossums tend to try to climb into garbage cans when they’re starving. This is because THEY ARE LITERALLY STARVING. Don’t fucking shoot them or hit them with things because you wanna be some fucking macho top-of-the-food-chain cocksucker.
  4. Mama possums are amazing mothers and if you encounter an “aggressive” opossum, it’s probably because she’s got babies hanging off her nipple and she’s freaking out. They’re clumsy. Sometimes they don’t hear you coming and  you catch each other off guard.
  5. Wanna lure an opossum off of your property? You can set up a box with some greens and cat kibble in it, hide it well, and lure them out that way. They’re actually quite harmless and keep other predators away. they eat lotsa gross stuff.
  6. Opossum mamas who get hit by cars often still have their helpless babies attached to them. Possums get a bad rep and people say they are “the dumbest animal”, but they are incredible creatures who have been around since the days of fucking dinosaurs so treat them well, okay?

Aww!!!
