She is very much her name, and looks like I will be able to get many photos of her over time. Patience is a rescue from a shelter, new to our home. She is so mellow and feminine, a nice touch to our home with two dogs and another old cat, all boys. She must have been raised with dogs, for she likes these and even goes up to them to rub her head on them.

Did you know they have to scrape the poo out of intestines before they can turn them into hotdogs and sausages? (Never mind that the "meat" they put in it is slaughterhouse waste, and even if it was grade A, would be CORPSE BITS.) And then the penis comparison. I mean come on, people, how is this appetizing?? Oy. If I wasn't vegan already, this might have done it.

Nice About Endangered Animals photos

A few nice about endangered animals images I found:


Snow Leopard
about endangered animals
Image by Rob_Brooks
Uncia uncia (Panthera uncia) Twycross Zoo 27DEC10

Estimates suggest that there are between 3,500 and 7,000 Snow Leopards left in the wild. Accurate counts are difficult because they are elusive and inhabit harsh and remote habitat so are rarely seen. Of this estimate there are about 600 animals in zoos around the world.

Snow leopards live throughout the mountains of Central Asia in Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. It is thought China contains around 60% of all snow leopard habitat but unfortunately they have already disappeared from some areas including parts of Mongolia.

Snow Leopards are listed in C.I.T.E.S. (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) which makes it illegal to transport any whole Snow Leopard or body part across international borders.

The Snow Leopard Trust works with governments in Snow Leopard countries to strengthen conservation policies and programs. Most importantly, the Trust works with local communities and herders on reducing conflict between people and Snow Leopards.

There are many ways you can help save these amazing cats. One of the best ways is just by raising awareness about the plight of the Snow Leopard. You can also get involved by becoming a member of the Snow Leopard Trust, donating money towards conservation work, or volunteering your time. To find out more, please visit www.snowleopard.org

Nice Wildlife Animals photos

A few nice wildlife animals images I found:




Lion Park, Gauteng
wildlife animals
Image by George M. Groutas
The Lion Park was first established in November 1966 by the world famous Chipperfields Circus. It is conveniently situated in the middle of the Gauteng-Tshwane complex and the climate is typical of the Highveld and thus ideal for indigenous Highveld fauna. Hence, most of the indigenous animals that are seen at the Lion Park are quite at home.

The Lion Park is neither a game reserve nor a zoo. It has been split into two areas – one area for the herbivores such as zebra, giraffe, and various plains antelope and other grass-eating animals, and the other area for the carnivores. The herbivores roam freely around the area and visitors are able to view the animals at close proximity at any time.

Cool Names For Animals images

Check out these names for animals images:



Slovakia, Malé Karpaty Mts.
names for animals
Image by Peter Fenďa
Geometridae or the geometer moths - the name "Geometridae" ultimately derives from Latin geometra from Greek γεωμέτρης ("geometer, earth-measurer"). This refers to the means of locomotion of the larvae or caterpillars, which lack the prolegs of other Lepidopteran caterpillars in the middle portion of the body, with only two or three pairs at each end. Equipped with appendages at both ends of the body, a caterpillar will clasp with its front legs and draw up the hind end, then clasp with the hind end (prolegs) and reach out for a new front attachment - creating the impression that it is measuring its journey

it is very easy, in africa, to wax nostalgic over a mighty wilderness never seen. at lake nakuru, in particular, the fourth biggest city in kenya is never far away and quite often in sight.

aided by images of 'animal planet,' 'national geographic' and 'the lion king' my mind wanders into the realms of imagination... where africa is a vast wilderness with no great inland cities, farmed small holdings, nomadic pasturalists and animals free to roam...

the encroachment of urbanisation (and all that comes with it) makes me wonder... is development always such a good thing?

* it is easy for me to wonder this from the freedom of a priveleged background. i wonder if i would feel the same had i grown up under different circumstances.

Botanic Gardens - Resident Grey Squirrel

Check out these animals that are extinct images:


Botanic Gardens - Resident Grey Squirrel
animals that are extinct
Image by infomatique
There are two types of squirrels in Ireland, the red squirrel and the grey squirrel. The red squirrel is native to Ireland while the grey squirrel is native to North America.

The red squirrel (Sciurus Vulgaris) belongs to a large group of mammals called rodents (Rodentia), which includes rats and mice. They can vary hugely in all shades of red and brown to almost black, and their bushy tail at 20cm is nearly as long as their body. This tail helps them to balance as they climb and jump through trees.

A red squirrel is only half the size of a grey squirrel, and the long ear tufts are found only in red squirrels.

Their home (called a drey) is like a large bird’s nest lined with moss and twigs. Baby squirrels (kits) are born between February and August. There may be two litters in a year, with up to six kits in a litter. Few squirrels live beyond six years, due to starvation, disease, predation, or human interference with their habitat.
They do not hibernate, but rely in winter on buried nuts and small seeds.

The grey squirrel is also a rodent. Rodents are one of the most successful groups of mammals, with 1700 species. Most rodents are small, and all have strong sharp front teeth (incisors) which grow throughout the animal’s life. So rodents have to gnaw constantly at their food, which helps keep their teeth at the right length.

The grey squirrel is a good bit larger than a red squirrel. Measuring up to 48cm from nose to tip of tail, and about half a kilogram in weight, there is little difference between males & females. The thick coat is greyish-brown, with a slight reddish tinge in summer. The tail is grey, very long and bushy. The ear tufts are also much less visible than on the red squirrel.


The Grey Squirrel, introduced into Ireland , from North America remains the greatest single threat to current red squirrel populations. Competition from the grey squirrels generally result in the displacement of red squirrels from broadleaved habitat within 15 years.

In Ireland, the current population originates from a few individuals that were introduced into Castleforbes Estate, Co Longford in 1911.

Fortunately, dispersal of grey squirrels in Ireland has been slower than that experienced in England and Wales. This may be attributed to the existence of much smaller areas of broadleaved habitat, and fewer mature hedgerows which act as corridors along which the grey squirrels can travel. Both squirrels compete largely for the same food in a broadleaved woodland. Grey squirrels hold an advantage where food is limited, due to their ability to consume unripe food such as hazelnuts in October. The red squirrel, however, can only ingest ripened nuts, and therefore it is more likely to suffer from food shortages over the winter months. Red squirrel densities tend to be lower than greys, particularly where food shortages exist. This may be a direct result of lower breeding rates when the prevailing conditions are unfavourable. Where food supplies are plentiful, red squirrels appear to breed at similar densities to greys.

Red squirrels are one of the oldest native Irish species, in that they pre-date human history and were common at the end of the ice age when forests covered most of the landscape. However, it is widely believed that the red squirrel became extinct in Ireland in the early 1700's. Tree cover in this period had dwindled from 80% of the land area which occurred after the last ice age 10,000 years ago, to below 2% of the land area. Fragmentation of the remaining broadleaved habitat was probably one of the main reasons for the red squirrel's disappearance. The red squirrel was re-established at ten sites throughout Ireland, between 1815 and 1856, and these were derived from squirrel populations in England. They did very well and became common again in woodlands. However, in recent years, competition from the grey squirrel has pushed them once more down the road towards extinction.
There are 250,000-300,000 grey squirrels in Ireland, but only 50,000-100,000 red squirrels: the red squirrel is disappearing by 1% every year.

Dogs seem to hear lots of things in the still of the night. A lot of barking goes on outside, but whenever we've looked out to see what all the commotion is about, we can see and hear nothing. Yet the dogs do bark a lot at night. I've never seen the movie, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", but I know I'm safe from such horrors, as long as the guardians of our castle are on guard. Still, we have way too many dogs!

If you are thinking about getting a pet - please get one from a shelter or rescue organization. These animals really need homes and the longer they are in the shelter the less likely they are to get adopted.

All of these wonderful dogs and cats are available for adoption at the east valley animal shelter.....go get one....or two
