What Is This?

This is just a place for me to link to things that inspire, amuse, or otherwise jog my brain. Whether or not they are intellectual is another story.

Thanks!
For everyone asking about how much money keepers make - there’s some helpful perspective for you.

"Little Hands" - felt pen and india ink wash
I think I need to call this one. As previously mentioned the ink wash was a little more unwieldy than I’m used to, but I think I enjoy the final result. Sort of a prequel to Inktober, a month-long challenge starting its second year tomorrow.
Full-view for detail! I resized this one a little larger than most.

talonzi said: It is actually for a Ring-necked Pheasant study and what the potential food sources might be for their chicks. But it is hard to remember that when I'm identifying them. It's actually kind of fun to get more well-rounded so I am not just limited to birds (even though they are the coolest).

Birds are the coolest :) but at least it’s bird related! That’s a total win!

aquanite said: Hey!! Do you work at the place that that video was taken at? LOL I found it on Vine after finding that sea lion one and I just. died. All of those were just incredible haha. I'm so jealous, I wish we had marine animals at my place [i don't officially work there YET but after my internship I'm going on to be a subkeeper c:] our higher ups just want to keep our collection mostly terrestrial. Noooo :(

Oh God I just now saw this, I’m sorry!! I dont work at this one but I’m up the coast! Marine animals are great, but I equally love working with rhinos.. I wish the two were compatible :) so internship worked out too be paid!! Huzzah!!

Happy October!
This week’s kitten for adoption is Ozone!  The trick er, treat he wants this Halloween is a loving new home!
Want to adopt? Here’s how:
Like and Reblog, and Comment on the weeks question:  Rumor has it that Flaky O’s wants to branch out into pet treats AND they’ve asked us to help with community research! (As you know, one of the many duties of an animal welfare worker is to taste test what goes into our charges meals for palatability.) What flavors would your pets want?  Peanut Butter? White Fly? Cool Ranch?  Let us know!
You don’t have to follow to adopt, but a new kitten will be made available each week through Halloween, so you might want to…
Adopter will be notified via their Ask box
I’ll announce the adopter and post the next kitten for adoption on Oct 20th
Adopter will receive their new pet and adoption certificate as well as instructions on completing the bloodstone promise. Submitting pics is highly encouraged!!
Our budget will allow one adoption out of the US, so this is open to all until an out of the US adoption occurs.
Eep! We had an out of US adoption, so now adoptions are open to just the US.
(The Night Vale SPCA is a community service to citizens of Night Vale - no adoption fees are necessary or accepted. I believe the peoples of Tumblr call it a ‘giveaway’.)

Mouse tartar, shoe jerky and the bitter taste of regret… I don’t know which I’m enjoying more — the flavor suggestions or finding out that some of you harbor alien parasites as shmoopy snuggle buddies. :)  The notes this week may be my favorites…

My StrexPet is a fan of spiderwolf legs, especially as it is reminiscent of the bitter tears of those losers from Desert Bluffs. Other favored tastes include JP oranges (artificial only, we don’t want to blink out of existence), tanned deer skin, and bloody Portobello mushroom. As long as there are no wheat or wheat byproducts, we’ll all be just fine.
