prismatic-bell: jenniferrpovey: herdjewsis: im sorry how the fuck big are those things My question from this, assuming it’s true, is not ‘how big are those things’ but ‘how smart are those things’ They are engaging in behavior that benefits the ecosystem in which they live, but which has no immediate, obvious direct benefit to them. That implies at least some ability to grasp a future benefit. Which means that we’re probably looking at an intelligence in the ballpark of great apes other than man, elephants, and crows. I know very little about wombats and have never seen one, but are there any Aussies out there who can direct me to resources that go past the basic “they live in groups this size and eat this.” Have we even done research into wombat intelligence? They don’t appear to have an extended lifespan, so my initial guess would have been to put them about with horses but if this is true… (As a note, it does appear that the wombat in the picture is a particularly large specimen). With that said, they ARE a lot bigger than I realized.Here’s Steve Irwin with one.: prismatic-bell: jenniferrpovey: herdjewsis: im sorry how the fuck big are those things My question from this, assuming it’s true, is not ‘how big are those things’ but ‘how smart are those things’ They are engaging in behavior that benefits the ecosystem in which they live, but which has no immediate, obvious direct benefit to them.

This rib broke only a few days before she died. The cloudy area is the break just starting to heal. The speckles of pink in the chest muscle here is calcified muscle tissue. This arises from dietary issues, such as too much calcium or lack of vitamin A, among others. Broken and healed ribs. Each tiny bulge is a separate break. ANATOMIKA Rib Fractures are VERY common in captive chameleons. They mostly result from picking up the animal wrong Additionally, well meaning owners often pick up chameleons as though picking up a guinea pig, or other small animal. By placing a hand under the animal's stomach and supporting it, thus breaking ribs due to the chameleon's unique anatomy. They can also occur from falls. Captive chameleons are prone to calcium imbalances which exacer- bates these types of injuries.
