1. Both predators and prey animals use camouflage to their advantage.

Prey animals blend in with the background, so hungry predators pass right by them.

🧵 Start of a thread with some amazing videos on #Camouflage.

I like this one. 🙂

2. But predators use camouflage too.

The striated frogfish (Antennarius striatus) walks the seafloor right up to its unsuspecting prey.

It has a prognathous mouth that launches an attack on prey in as fast as 6 milliseconds.

Today, on #TheMisplacedMenagerie -

We report the exotic (for #India) apple #snail, #Pomacea diffusa, also known as the spike topped apple snail, from the #Mumbai region, as part of our ongoing studies on #urbanwildlife, and the #ecology of introduced species, in #India, Mumbai.
The study was officially published in the 'ELA Journal of Forestry and Wildlife' - a peer reviewed #science journal, which is also the official journal of the #Maharashtra State #Forest Department.

Link to paper: researchgate.net/publication/35…

Spiked Topped Apple Snails in #Mumbai (and other parts of #India) are the direct result of the #aquarium trade - either as accidental, or deliberate releases from home aquaria.

Field trips help children connect with the real world & erase #classroom boredom. These trips contribute to their understanding of the world, broaden their perspectives and make learning new concepts fun.
Given the constraints of conducting physical field trips in the current environment, we at #NuttysDen conducted a virtual tour of our premises, for the students of @pathfinders_ps
There have been multiple studies that highlight the positive impact that #pets have on the mental & physical development of #children - children that grow up with pets tend to have higher self esteem, develop better congnitive and social skills.

ST GILES, ABBOT - SEPTEMBER 1

~thread~
1. St Giles lived in the 7th century. Originally from Greece,he went to France to live in a cave as a hermit. He was sustained by prayer and the milk of a deer. One day the Gothic king Wamba pursued St Giles’ animal companion #StGiles #pets Image
2. as part of his hunting expedition. The deer fled towards St Giles’ cave, and thus the king’s arrow aimed at the deer hit St Giles instead. As compensation, King Wamba gave St Giles a piece of land in the Provence, on which St Giles founded a monastery.
PRAYER:

Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that the revered intercession of StGiles
may bring us heavenly aid,
just as his wonderful life
is an example of humility for all.
Through our Lord Jesus..

St Giles is one of the #FourteenHolyHelpers and patron against contagious diseases.

Oh hey, the new site is up, which means it's time for A Thread about Gatsby (1/??)
Starting around August 2019, I was hired as a contractor to work on setting up translations of the Gatsby docs. In June 2020, my contract was cancelled, the translations still not integrated into the site, and the project postponed indefinitely (2/??)
This thread will serve as a post-mortem on that project, what went wrong, as well as a catalogue of my issues with gatsby the Company, including worker mistreatment, incompetent leadership, and hypocrisy regarding diversity and inclusion. (3/??)

AN OPEN LETTER #HELP #Editor #Director
We are living in traumatic times but the #Covid19 hasn’t just had terrible consequences for humans there is also the consequences to our #Pets in the U.K. in particular in relation to the thousands of missing and stolen #Pets in the U.K.
I am one of thousands of #Volunteers who help via Social Media to reunite Found Pets and raise awareness of the #Missing and #Stolen. In the last month 170 Pets have been reported missing or stolen and that is just on one U.K. database #DogLostUK.
As Volunteers working 24/7 we alert groups around the U.K. There are groups for specific areas for Missing and Stolen Pets, there are groups for specific areas for Found Pets. There are also National Groups for Missing, Stolen and Found. There are groups set up by Volunteers

The death of the #highstreet is not universally applicable. Empty shop fronts range from 5% to circa 30%.

Future of the high street may lie in more residential and entertainment space in the centre of towns, alongside #retail.

Jack Tindale, #retail expert from @Policy_Connect
We need to re-imagine the #highstreet. #Pet businesses can offer a tactile #shopping opportunity that isn't open to other commercial entities

THREAD: Of all the things our family has had to deal with during #coronavirus #quarantine, the one thing that never crossed my mind was how we would deal with a dying pet. Now that we’ve been through the experience, I thought I’d share our story. (1/N)
We’d been very lucky with our dog Brady, a Newfoundland we’d adopted when he was 2. Newfies have a typical lifespan of 8-10 years, so we were as surprised as anyone else as he passed his 10th birthday, and then his 11th, without major health issues. (2/N) #pets #quarantine
When he was 6 and 7, he needed knee surgery, but he fully recovered and was in great shape - until last Saturday. (3/N) #pets #quarantine

We are experiencing a serious pandemic that is currently impacting our communities, districts, States, and Nations. It's times like these where people all around us are in need and have limited paths help.

As a community leader, this is where I plead with everyone to check in on those around you. Make sure we are all prepared with extra food, medications, and necessities for a full quarantine. Remember to include pets and home goods.

Where many of us have prepared for the long term, many didn't have the resources to prepare fully enough. Call those you know, help who you can. If you find anyone who is in need and can't find help, don't hesitate to contact anyone from our campaign.

We're issuing a precautionary seasonal recreational use health advisory for Lake Billy Chinook due to recurring cyanobacterial (harmful algal) blooms that routinely develop in the lake: bit.ly/2X6847W #SummerSafety #WaterSafety
Tests done at Lake Billy Chinook since 2015 show that blooms in the lake consistently produce cyanotoxins over our recreational use health guideline values for people and #pets. #SummerSafety #WaterSafety
As a result, OHA and local partners determined that a 2019 seasonal advisory for the lake is the best option. At this time, we're reminding the public of the steps to take to reduce exposure to the blooms and cyanotoxins that may be present throughout the season.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
#RandomThoughts
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

In honor of #NationalPetDay this thread shows some of the cool findings on #Children and #pets especially #dogs from our research lab @UF
First up: when kids are in a new stressful situation, having their #Dog with them makes them feel less #stress doi.org/10.1111/sode.1…
#Children who call their #Dog over to be petted have lower levels of the #stress sensitive hormone cortisol than children who don't call their dog or children whose dogs hover around them anyway doi.org/10.1111/sode.1…
What leads some #Children to pet their #dogs more than other kids? The results may or may not surprise you...
