It finally happened.
After almost two years of you guys suggesting a subscription website or kickstarter we finally joined Patreon.
As many of you already know my end goal is always to educate and help animals in the process. Through our Patreon page we can not only give you a more personal inside look at what caring for exotics is like, but also raise money to help animals. Currently we’ll be raising money to help care for our foster pups until they’re adopted.
Through Patreon we’ll be able to post more detailed information about the care of each one of the animals housed here, including the sugar gliders and reptiles, as well any new animals we take in. We’ll also be offering gift packages, hosting giveaways, sending out post cards, doing Q&A’s, and much more.
Patreon is a monthly subscription page that offers different rewards for being a sponsor!
To kick off our page, tomorrow is Juniper’s 3rd birthday and we’ll be posting birthday party shenanigans through out the day. Click the link in our bio if you’d like to join us!
Did you know today is National Hippo Day? Hippos (Hippopotamus amphibious) are the one of the largest living land animals in the world, weighing up to 3,200 kilograms (7,055 pounds). When born, calves can weigh nearly 100 pounds! These large herbivores are native to eastern and sub-saharan Africa where they inhabit rivers and lakes; they can hold their breath underwater for as long as five minutes. They also have one of the strongest bites in the animal kingdom.

Far from being ‘stupid’, sheep are intelligent and thoughtful animals, able to recognise one another and the faces of people, even if they have been absent from their lives for a number of years. Research has also shown they have good spatial understanding, can map out their surroundings mentally and may be able to plan ahead. One researcher said: ‘in our tests they performed at a level very similar to monkeys and humans in the initial learning tasks’.7 Quite simply, if we don’t understand them, it may well be that we’re the ones lacking intelligence.

My sweet bbs 🐁💌🐁
Newt misses Skink, but Skinkers is in a better place now 🦋
Haven’t posted in a while; so here is a photo of my sweet bb’s before Skink passed away. They were always playing & snuggling together. 💞
(Newt is the model boi; Skink was always super bashful of the camera)
