I assume he’s in more of a defensive stance, but I do like this gif.
Signal boosting these pendants for a friend of mine. She makes these with the shed from her lizards and they are very pretty, though hard to photograph with a phone. I just wanted to help give her some exposure. She doesn’t have an etsy (all those fees) so if you are interested Ill link to her fb page and the album I swiped these pictures from. If you send her a message, just shoot me one too so I tell her to check her others folder. I think these are awesome and I know there is a market out there for them.
You can visit the original album with the prices here
*Edit* not even sure which 5 tags would be the best to get this seen, but for now I put it in the pagan tag because honestly, I thought there would be a few of you who would like it.

The toddler was just 3 years old and 5 feet (1.5 meters) long when it wandered into a river near Alberta, Canada, and drowned about 70 million years ago. The beast was so well-preserved that some of its skin left impressions in the nearby rock.

A baby crocodile’s gender is determined by the temperature of its egg and the depth at which they are buried.

Hibernating Turtles Aren’t Dead to the World
by Helen Fields
Like many freshwater turtles, the slider Trachemys scripta can spend the whole winter resting at the bottom of a cold lake with no oxygen. Are they totally comatose, or do they keep a bit of a light on in their brains? To find out, researchers inserted electrodes into anesthetized turtles’ heads. The reptiles’ neurons responded to light and vibration—even when the turtles were deprived of oxygen, the group reports online today in Biology Letters.
The team also placed nonanesthetized turtles in cold, oxygen-free water in a dark lab for 2 weeks, to make them think it was winter. When the researchers turned on the lights, the turtles started moving around in their tanks. Warming the water had the same effect. (Oxygen and vibration didn’t.) The team concludes that the turtles aren’t actually comatose in winter; they’re waiting for signs of spring in a state of “slow vigilance.”
