Regrann from @octonation - #InCaseYouMissedIt- It took chainsaw artist Jeffrey Michael Samudosky 6 months of work to carve this 7 foot tall 14 foot long single piece of coastal redwood into a massive octopus! We were told by attendees of the AWFS17 convention that no photos do the detailing justice! What do you think nation?

Regrann from @dswt - We are extremely excited and very proud to soon be releasing "The Unsung Heroes" — a beautiful book that shares the hidden stories of bravery behind the rescue of orphaned elephants. Filled with stunning images and quotes from rescuers, “The Unsung Heroes” celebrates the ordinary men and women throughout Kenya who have gone out of their way to help elephant in need.
We will be sharing more details closer to its launch, and in the meantime offer you this glimpse into what awaits within the book’s 200 pages.

This is just a peek at “The Unsung Heroes” — to watch the full book trailer, or to register your interest in the book (and be among the first to order the book in advance of its release), visit:

Regrann from @octonation - 😱 Octopuses have a rough tongue like a cat! 👅 🐈
Using their parrot like beak, octopus are able to drill open and inject a toxic venom that not only paralyzes, but contains enzymes that liquifies & aids them in digesting their food. They also have a tongue-like organ called the radula! Covered with rows of tiny teeth, it pushes bite size pieces of food down the octopuses throat.

Regrann from @a_lallie_ - A politician has campaigned to allow this #cow to live, which is amazing but has admitted that he’s not #vegetarian or #vegan. He just thinks this particular cow deserves to live. However ALL #animals want to live. ALL animals value their lives. No animal wants to be KILLED in a #slaughterhouse for people’s forgettable snacks. Please #MakeTheConnection all as #PeaceBeginsOnYourPlate 💚🐮🌱 .
_
The article is below. You’ll notice that they keep referring to the cow as ‘it’ instead of she. Please never do this as words hold the power to demean, objectify and subjugate. Animals are someone, not something.
_
Story: A cow has been living alone on an island after staging a miraculous escape on its way to a slaughterhouse. The animal made its bid for safety after it refused to get into a lorry taking it to be killed for meat. Instead it rammed a metal fence before making a dash for the nearby Lake Nysa, south Poland.
_
After the cow’s owner, Mr Lukasz, attempted to get it back to the farm, the cow broke one of his worker’s arms, entered the water and swam to one of the islands in the middle of the lake. Mr Lukasz said he even saw it dive underwater on its way. When firefighters used a boat to get to the island, the cow swam about 50 metres to a neighbouring peninsula.
_
Despite the farmer considering having it shot dead, politician Pawel Kukiz, raised the animal's plight asking for the “hero cow” to be saved from death. “She escaped heroically and infiltrated the island in the middle of the lake, where it remains today,” Mr Kukiz said.
_
"I am not a vegetarian, but fortitude and the will to fight for this cow's life is invaluable. Therefore, I decided to do everything to cause the cow to be delivered to a safe place and in the second stage, as a reward for her attitude, give her a guarantee of a long-term retirement and natural death” - #regrann

Regrann from @naturemama77 - @Regrann from @fightforelephants - If You Love Elephants, Don't Ever Ride Them. Here's Why.

Elephant riding is on almost everyone’s travel bucket list. We all love elephants, so why wouldn’t we want to ride one as the ultimate Thailand experience?
Just before you jump on, here are the seven dirty secrets you need to know…

1. Wild elephants won’t let humans ride them: All wild animals need to be trained before they will perform for humans. But elephant training is particularly brutal.
The ancient tradition is called the Phajaan. It translates as ‘the breaking of the spirit.’

2. They have to be trained as babies: Calves are so young when they enter the Phajaan they’re still suckling from their mothers.
Mothers and calves need to be forcibly separated. They’ll cry out for each other for weeks, but they will never be reunited.

3. There’s a reason it’s nicknamed ‘The Crush’: A key part of the Phajaan is a tiny pen. Calves are tied in tightly. Fixed in a standing position. They are unable to walk, sit, lie down or move in anyway.
They will remain here for up to a week. Starved of food and sleep.

4. Torture will continue until the spirit breaks: th e pen alone is not enough to break an elephant’s wild spirit.
They will be beaten, burned and stabbed. Any object can be turned into a weapon. Bullhooks and a bamboo stick with a nail through it are popular choices. Targeting the most sensitive areas.

5. Not all babies spirits can be broken: Half of the calves who go into the Phajaan can’t survive it.

6. Bullhooks are key to controlling elephants: Discrete jabs in a sensitive areas is a sharp reminder of the Phajaan. Just having one in sight of an elephant is an intimidating threat.

7. Elephant backs aren’t strong enough to carry humans: Horses have rounded vertebrae joints. The elephant gaps along their spine makes carrying weight painful.
Some argue elephant’s necks are strong enough to support one person. But the weight of a bench and multiple tourists on their back is crippling.

Love her...Regrann from @agirlhasnopresident - Wrong. Damn. Kids. I can’t remember the last time I was this hopeful for the future. #Repost @time ・・・
A rally held on Feb. 17, days after a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla., drew a crowd of thousands and prompted impassioned pleas for gun control. The rally was held in Fort Lauderdale, about 25 miles from Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people died in Wednesday’s shooting. Emma Gonzalez, a student at the high school, directly addressed President Trump and other lawmakers in her speech: "If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a terrible tragedy and how it should never have happened and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it, I’m going to happily ask him how much money he received from the National Rifle Association," Gonzalez said.

Please remember that no zoo in the world can ever replace the natural habitats of these animals. They shouldn’t have to live in misery because of our curiosity. They don't belong to us and they are not ours to confine in zoos. @thedodo - #regrann - #regrann

@Regranned from @octonation - Wait for the color change... 😍
⚠️ HOW does the Octopus create instant 3-D camouflage on it’s skin? 📚 Under their skin, octopuses have a network of finely controlled muscles that can create fine bumps, high ridges and even spikey horns that they could instantly shift to match their surroundings.
📊These strange muscle structures are called hydrostats (think of make shift bones that consist of pressurized water)—this is how octopus arms can create a “elbow” in any place & begin walking along the sea floor. If you are still kinda confused think of how we humans stretch out our tongues & are able to move them in many directions. 👅
🐙 but UNLIKE our tongues, Octopuses have THREE dedicated types of muscles that control their incredible on-call skin protrusions (referred to as papillae, pah-pill-ee)
🔴↔️One set are shaped in concentric circles to lift the skin vertically away from the body.
↕️ Another set pulls this form together, to determine the shape—whether it will be a round bump or tall spike.
⏮️And a third group seems to pull the raised section back toward the surface, spreading out its base.
🐙💨 As the researchers wrote, this "retraction is important for quickly smoothing the skin for reduced drag during swimming, particularly for escape."

@Regranned from @robisrael - Saw the beautiful painting of President Obama by @kehindewiley and was inspired to do the inverse #donaldtrump version. I figured if a presidential portrait was made of this crappy president he would be surrounded by #fastfood garbage, plopped on his golden throne, about to stuff his bloated fat face with a #bigmac while trolling the world on his twitter account. Say what you want but Obama’s was an inspirational person and his painting shows it. #Trump is the complete opposite. His portrait will be a black velvet painting that you would find in a rundown mall.
