Rhabdophis tigrinus - Venomous/Poisonous Colubrid of Asia.
Poisonous snakes poisonous snakes poisonous snakes!!
Stealing Mark’s thunder to explain that these snakes are both poisonous AND venomous due to the fact that they absorb toxins (bufadienolides) from amphibian prey into a specialized gland along their neck. (You can see the raised gland in some of the photos.) This means that predators who bite into the snake get a nasty toxic surprise. However, these snakes also produce their own injectable venom- they just tend to use it for hunting rather than defense.

I finished this weeks ago for a comics anthology some cool people at my school put together. Chris Kindred asked me to contribute something because he is super nice.
I definitely learned a lot from this project!
Instead of becoming jealous concerning a friend, acquaintance, or simply someone you may watch or admire, use that energy to fuel your own inspiration! Feel it out and redirect the negativity into something positive, make it FLOW!
This is great advice for fellow artists, but can easily be translated into any field.

this is that shit you reblog every single time you see it on your dash. this man is a beast.
Large chain pet stores, like Petco and Petsmart, are notorious for neglect and abuse of the animals they sell. People especially look over animals that are not cats or dogs. People think “Oh its just a fish” or see reptiles and birds as display items. These stores sell the animals as a commodity.
I personally have gone and talked to someone about their ball pythons because they had no water, humidity under 15 degrees and no shelter for the two little wrinkly pythons. And I have seen and heard stories about employees who do their best and inform costumers about the animals. Take time and research the animal you want and if you can afford it and care for it properly and find a someone/or group who sell healthy animals.
