This is Beau, an African tortoise someone dumped at Maymont. He hung out on the patio of a local restaurant this evening and everyone chipped in for his care. Poor little guy was suffering from malnutrition and his shell is all “pyramided.” He’s only about a year and a half and now, with proper care, he’ll live to be 150.
In light of the awful tortoise incident dominating the news recently, here is a story of good people and much brighter future for Beau the tortoise <3
my mom has been a cop for over 20 years and she is the one who constantly warns me about police aggression and young male cops and told me that if you’re ever alone on a rural road and a cop throws their lights on to put on your four ways and drive to the next gas station before stopping because so many cops are scum and it’s not worth the chance of getting hurt. the fact that SHE feels the need to tell me this shit scares me to death
the world is incredible. there are girls in this world, and there are also dogs. you can put melted cheese on any type of potato. sometimes flowers grow even when nobody is there to water them. right now on this same planet where we live there are people who are in love with each other kissing each other on the nose. emotions and colours are both things that exist. everything is so great
We found this little garter snake in the garden while we were mulching! I think it probably would have preferred to stay in the garden, but I relocated it to the edge of the woods because we were using some sharp tools to spread the mulch and I didn’t want it to get hurt.
(It has a bit of mulch in its mouth, that’s why it looks a bit funny.)
Thank you for not harming this precious little guy (or gal)!
If you don’t believe me go to tumblr user mothbug and look at her tagged/anonymous to find the ask that prompted this post where someone said exactly that.
"Most girls that like snakes and weird animals are ugly" pardon me while I put my snake on my face to demonstrate the several fucks that none of us give
Allow me to join you with my snake scarf and lack of fucks
I don’t think I’d have a face left if I did what you guys were doing, but I want to play anyway.
don’t give even one tiny little fuck
NEIGH HOY MENOY
