Their intelligence. Elephants understand that ivory is the reason they’re being killed. There are very, very few big bulls with big ivory left in the world, and the two or three still in Tsavo have become nocturnal. I’ve seen a bull with big tusks by the road turn his back, trying to hide the ivory.

What’s the biggest misconception people have about elephants?

I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.

Yadriel & Maria appreciation post ✿◕‿◕✿

HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.

But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.

this was actually really important to me because there are tons of reasons for a person being fairly non-verbal. i really liked the portrayal of this relationship because she knows he doesn’t like to talk and it’s not really portrayed as problem for her, it’s not a problem for their relationship, she accepts him for who he is. but she knows that babies need communication for development and he cares about his baby so much that he makes such an effort to do it even though it doesn’t come naturally to him. and it’s so natural in that last scene, it’s so clear he does it all the time and i just really liked this part.

appreciate brown eyes more bc the people with brown eyes are grown up forcing to believe fuckin blue and green and grey are beautiful and either detest or get incredibly happy when someone compliments their eye color stop letting this happen

there are people with brown eyes reblogging this and theyre talking about still being sad with their eye color and this is exactly why we need hype about brown eyes

I’m awake at 3:43am extremely unsettled from probably the creepiest nightmare I’ve had in a long while.

I was on an educational trip in the dream, like I am right now in oxford, but it was located somewhere in the US at my professor’s cottage. It was the same professor as I have right now, she’s the sweetest person and so kind.

And then we find out that she’s a cannibal and murderer and all the previous classes all died mysteriously on a weekend trip they took and we were next. She for some reason, with her husband, taught us for the whole month we were there and at the end would kill us off one by one in a room and then cut us up for their freezer.

And I would have one On one conversations with her (in my dream) and I literally asked her “do you like killing?” Or something like that, and she openly goes “oh yeah, I’ve done hundreds by now, it’s exhilarating,” In that really sweet voice she has.

The entire time I was holding my breath, figuring out a way to contact my parents or USC and tell them to send help but I just somehow couldn’t and I was just choking on fear and anxiety.

Urgh. Gonna take a while to fall back asleep

Today was so much fun!! London is actually pretty okay
