hello i am nj, this is my art blog, you'll probably see posts about my snake here and there as well
oh my god the mother robin’s babies hatched and she is SO AGGRESSIVE
she will literally attack anybody who even walks out of my front door
if I try and look out of the window to spy on her nest she pecks the glass and puffs herself up what a mean mamma
Anonymous asked: Did Zeus died?
just watched wolf children: ame and yuki and idk i guess i didnt take away from it a lot of what tumblr did
it was animated well but kind of lacks a lot of heart in comparison to the animated movie giants of japan like mayazaki (i mean it was really good but idk it just felt like it was missing something, this is totally an opinion, of course…)… it didnt seem very deep and didn’t make me emotional at all
it was good, id probably watch it again, but it wasnt like
idk i guess i just didnt feel some of the character development was deep enough, each character seemed pretty independent of one another so it was hard to care about them as a “family unit” which made it hard to care when they eventually split up
ehhhh overall i was pretty hype and now im disappointed, it doesnt seem like a finished movie
ALSO i hated the way they chose to develop the kids, yuki was so full of life in the beginning and at the end she was pretty fucking bland, ame just grew up to be an asshole instead of how he was caring and shy in the beginning i know people change but yeesh why did they make them so lifeless
gosh zeus has lost weight
oh my GOd
ruffresia asked: speaking of reptiles i was wondering something. opinions seem to vary about whether reptiles can get emotionally attached/love their owner, etc. i read that reptiles don't have the portion of the brain that handles emotions (like dogs or cats do) but other people say they do notice signs of affection. so i was wondering what your opinion was on that or experience with zeus?
I’m not 100% sure that reptiles can show like, affection affection, but I think they can be very comfortable with certain people, and maybe even grow to “like” them as much as a reptile possibly can… I am skeptical how much some snakes like ball pythons can love people (I feel like if I gave Zeus the chance to leave, I’d never see him again haha), but lots of lizards like Tegus are actually quite smart and seem to actually grow quite attached to their owner.
In short, I guess I don’t buy into either side- I think they have more capacity to “love” than some people give them credit for, but I don’t think a reptile might have the capacity to form some bonds that mammalian pack animals do.
As for Zeus, he definitely shows me signs that he trusts me- when I let other people hold him, he usually tries to crane his neck and get back onto me, he seems to enjoy being rubbed around his head by me, etc., but like I said, if I gave him the chance to leave, I don’t think he would think twice about hitting the road, haha
assuming money, space, and availability were no issue, my dream reptile list would definitely include (but not limited to)…
- blood python (best pythons ahh)
- burmese python
please tell me your reptile dreams i want to hear them!!
wait is it ending how was I not told
it seems like it is but you know kishimoto he could drag it on for another 70 years if he felt like it
