ok, this person does some choice aliens. Go check this person out, seriously.
As someone trying to design a bushel of aliens for a setting, Zarnala makes me want to build a shrine in their name and leave them sacrifices for inspiration.
These jellyfish (Mastigias sp.) inhabit a saltwater lake, and are effectively cut off from the sea. They have lost the ability to sting, and obtain all or most of their nutrition from symbiotic algae living within their tissues. (Palau, Micronesia) by David Hall
Fun fact: Cheetahs only attack prey that runs
jesus that is good to know.
Yup, that’s the point you just stay still and let it do whatever the fuck it wants that doesn’t involved you getting eaten.
REALLY FUN FACT for big cats cheetahs are fucking docile as shit
my grandfather ran a cheetah sanctuary in south africa and he’d just lie with them and sleep among them and they’d rub against him and chirp at him they’re big fucking babies
Another Fun Fact: Cheetahs are incredibly nervous animals. One of the (many) reason’s they’re going extinct is that cheetahs are so sensitive and nervous, some of them are literally too nervous to breed. Others will breed, but stress themselves out so much, they’ll lose their cubs.
So zoos with breeding programs had to figure out how to make cheetahs comfortable enough to first of all, get laid and secondly - not spazz themselves into miscarrying.
So what’d they do?
They gave the cheetah’s their very own Service Dogs!
The dogs make them feel safe, protected and secure!
