My tumblr is about nature (particularly marine life, moths and mycology), body modification and my stupid sense of humour.
I do digital art from time to time which you should totally check out.
Ask me a question? You have my attention.

The Sugar glider, scientifically named Petaurus breviceps (Diprotodonia - Petauridae), is a small, softly-furred possum with a bushy, prehensile tail. Like other gliders, it possesses a thin, furred membrane, known as a ‘patagium’, which stretches from the wrist to the ankle and which can be seen as a wavy line along the body when not in use.
The feet are hand-like, able to grasp branches, aided by an opposable toe on the hindfoot, and the second and third toes of the hindfoot are fused, with a split claw that is used in grooming.
This cute animal is widespread across much of Australia, as well as in Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and on surrounding islands. The species was also introduced to Tasmania in 1835, where it has spread across the island. The sugar glider is a popular species in the pet trade, particularly in the United States.
Sugar glider is an arboreal species, they use the membrane along their body to glide up to 50 metres or more between trees. They are quite agile in the air, using the tail to help control the direction of the glide, and swooping upwards at the last moment to land with precision.

WHY AM I LAUGHING SO HARD WHY IS MY SENSE OF HUMOR THIS TERRIBLE
Nobody makes strawberry chocolate pie the way you do. Wednesday’s my favorite day of the week ‘cause I get to have a slice of it. I think about it as I’m waking up. Could solve all the problems of the world, that pie.
Experts told this artist her dream was impossible. It’s a good thing she didn’t listen.
