there’s a baby seagull stuck in our garden!! its mumma-bird was on the roof yelling down as it tried to fly up there (probably seagull-speak to the effect of “bleddy flap harder you cretin!”) but it kept getting itself tangled in the trellis. now it’s sat on the picnic table and its mumma is just dropping stuff down for it to eat. i still have a grudge against seagulls but this is pretty cute
my cat has only recently discovered hedgehogs, and after the sun sets she’s always sat up at the top of the garden staring into the bushes waiting for her lil hedgehog friends to come out to play. so cute
Over 30 species of non-avian dinosaurs have been confirmed to have feathers, either from direct fossilized evidence of feathers, or other indicators, such as quill knobs. Up until now, all of those dinosaurs were confirmed to be carnivorous theropods, like Velociraptor and the ancestors of birds. However, fossilized remains of a new type of herbivorous dinosaur indicate that all dinosaurs may have had feathers.
