This is really important. Besides the fact that small animals can become stuck in gum larger ones often choke on it or have their mouths obstructed by it.
Humans may be able to pass gum through our systems but most small birds, reptiles, and mammals can’t. Gum looks and smells a lot like food to other animals and it can mean their demise if they try to swallow it.
It only takes a few seconds to wrap your gum up and put it somewhere responsible, you could just save a life.
I never would have thought gum of all things could fuck up a hummingbird. Guess it isn’t just gross- for the wrong critter it’s dangerous.
Why the hell can’t people just throw their trash in the proper receptacle?
I had a terrible time sleeping last night. For some reason I was just super awake no matter how late it got. It didn’t help that I also remembered a weird dream I had a while ago. In the dream I was in my grandfather’s woods and I was walking back to the house. There was something watching me, though, and I knew there was something watching me. It only moved when I couldn’t see it. Every time I looked away or a tree blocked my view of the creature it would get closer to me. Towards the end of the dream I was still in the woods staring down the creature that was, give or take, 10 feet away from me. I have no idea what it was or what it looked like. All I remember are the huge round eyes that never blinked.
Here are the answers for this guessing game! I’ve already contacted the individual that came the closest to getting them all right so they’ll be getting some goodies soon.
Most of these are pretty obscure but you guys all did a great job! Thanks for playing! I’ll have more guessing games soon and I’m creeping up on a big number of followers so I’ll be having a big giveaway to celebrate that too! :)
I didn’t play officially because I forgot to post my guesses but I got a lot of these right (woo!). Mostly I’m reblogging this now because those alpaca toes. ;;
Probably the worst part of owning, admiring, and caring for snakes is that telling anyone that you do opens this doorway for snake related “stories”.
Almost all of them focusing on the death, harm and, fear of snakes.
I do my best to educate others and teach them what…
Snake stories! Once I was with a friend at a herp shop they worked at and I was allowed to handle all of the albino animals (I have a weakness for them) and I had the tiniest corn snake, just the cutest, and it crawled up my jacket and onto my neck before just resting there. Or so I thought.
It had its mouth open as big as it would go, chewing on the back of my neck. I only know this because my friend came up behind me and asked “Are you okay?” So that’s the time a snake about as big as a pencil tried to eat me.
I was at the store getting really excited about all the cute Halloween stuff and there were spider lights and now Moose has to suffer the indignity of spider lights.
I had a dream that I was fighting with two opossums over a dead turtle in knee high grass.
Anyone else find the maceration tag impossible to browse because it’s flooded with posts about these two singer chicks? Apparently the fans mashed their names together or something and came up with “maceration.” Brilliant. Thanks.
