Hummingbird Clearwing Moth (Hemaris thysbe)
This Hummingbird moth is in the family Sphingidae, the Hawk moths or Sphinx moths. It’s a large family – about 1,450 species! 
As its name implies, this species, as well as other species of hummingbird moths, are known for how fast they fly and their ability to move quickly from side to side when they hover. This ability may have evolved to deal with ambush predators that wait in flowers. Clearwing Hummingbird moths are found in every region of the country.

I saw some of these for the first time the other day and could have sworn they were actual humming birds!

I’m so proud watching this horse today. This boy is the first horse I ever trained from the beginning. His owner came to my trainer begging for help after numerous professionals had called him “untrainable.” Last summer I took him to a show and got 6 blue ribbons with him.

Timmy is so majestic I dont even know what to do sometimes

I love that his name is Timmy. 
Like I feel like it should be Thor, or Gandalf, or Hercules. But nope. It’s Timmy.

Stumbled upon this little guy this afternoon

I don’t have my glasses on and I thought this was a raw chicken breast in the forest.


I have 20:20 vision and I thought the same thing

Tolk loves his new sphagnum substrate! So nice and soft, as well as humid! You learn so much on Tumblr, always be open to accept advice from those around you! Other people have amazing experience that you can learn from :)

Why haven’t I tried this with Zeus yet!?? It makes so much sense

Ohh my goodness it would work so well with Zeus! I can’t believe I didn’t do it earlier, so cheap, easy to clean and holds humidity like a boss!

I think my only concern would be that Zeus is such a stupid eater that he’d swallow some. But I guess I could always remove it before eating.

i love how there is no comments on this everyone just gets the reference

No. No, I don’t get the reference. 300 thousand people have reblogged this without a word, without so much as a tag, because apparently we all get the reference. I fucking don’t. This has passed by my dashboard hundreds of fucking times and nobody ever asks what the fuck it is.
I’m officially terming this post a conspiracy. 300000 people could not just know what this is. You’re all reblogging this to fit in, or because you know it messes with people, or because you’re the fucking Matrix. You’re the Matrix, aren’t you? You’re all a bunch of Mr Smiths living in a world of green code. Well fuck you all and fuck your stupid post. I’m off to save fucking Zion.
Fuck this.

I have a serious question.

wecanmakeitthroughthefire:

After much research I’m a little stuck. Can female leopards be housed together? There’s so much conflicting information I don’t know which to believe?

They can but it’s not advised. They aren’t “social” animals and don’t care about “having a buddy to keep them company.” They much prefer to be alone because tank mates can cause stress. I’ve successfully kept two together without conflict but you have to take a lot of precautions to do so. You need at least three hides per gecko, with two on the warm side. You need to feed them separately and in enclosures different from their home tank to make sure each gecko is getting the proper nutrition and to eliminate the possibility of food time accidents. You need to be really OCD about checking on them and doing full body exams every day. Accidents can happen and a gecko could mistake a moving tail for a mealworm. Also, be diligent about checking poop for any signs of stress or illness. And if you see any signs of illness you have to treat both geckos since you can’t be sure which gecko is sick. And if you can see that one is sick you have to assume the other is too since they’re in the same enclosure. All my geckos are in their own enclosures now because it was just so much easier and safer for my pets to be kept apart. The only thing that housing together is beneficial for is that it saves space. That’s it.

TLDR: It can be done but it’s really not worth all the trouble and risk. In the long run it’s actually more work to keep two together than it is to have two separate tanks.

My poor lost child…she’s got a warm moist bed of peat moss in that cave with her bro  (speaking of bro there’s his stubby little tail nub in the background)

She’s probably been kicked out, geckos can be territorial. If she had her own tank then I bet she’d be much happier!**Side note: you’re also asking for eggs by housing a male with a female! If you’re prepared for this make sure you feed them separately because a pregnant mommy will need different dietary needs than the male

leopard gecko supplement dusting question. again.

yulon:

ok. I’ve been using Calcium with NO D3 every other feeding and then using Reptivite WITH D3 twice a week for the past week with Finn. Now I just saw something that I need to use Calcuim WITH D3 but then also use Reptitive WITH D3 twice a week?

Is what I’m doing wrong and do I need to go buy…

Honestly I just use Repashys Calcium Plus at ever feeding, and then leave a bottle cap of calcium W/O D3 in the viv. RCP is a true all-in-one, and I use it at every feeding. It works wonders.
