Blunthead Tree Snake (Imantodes cenchoa)

The blunthead tree snake grows to an average length of 800mm. Their pupils are very distinct from other snakes. They have vertical slits for pupils which allow for the snake to look down. This evolutionary trait is what give the blunthead tree snake such an advantage over other snakes. Their eyes make up approximately 26% of its head. Blunthead tree snakes are arboreal, meaning living in or often found in trees. They are most often found in low vegetation such as coffee trees or bromeliads. These snakes prefer much cooler and moist areas such as wet forests and rainforests. Blunthead tree snakes are found primarily in Central America. The blunthead tree snakes are nocturnal. They feed mostly on small lizards, frogs, and other reptile eggs. Because the female blunthead tree snakes tend to have larger heads, they are capable of preying on larger reptiles and amphibians.photo credits: wiki, Kristiina Ovaska, stock-clip

I made these three tiny PS1-themed zines to give away during GX2 in mid-July. I sold them online shortly after for $1 a 3-pack, and then sold out of them completely at San Francisco Zine Fest last weekend, so now I’m putting them online, here you go.

These are single-sheet zines, quick and painless, drawn in like two days, and Rookie has a good single-sheet zine tutorial if you want to give it a shot.

Thanks everyone who said kind words about them at GX2, thanks everyone who bought a copy, thanks Brian Crecente for writing about them on Polygon, thanks thanks thanks.

Did you know GX is returning next year? The GX3 kickstarter has a little over a week left to go, support them!

Finally, this is my 100th post on this tumblr. Thank you for following me.

I spilled some milk, and I was turning back to wipe it up when this guy came crawling across the counter for a sip. I didn’t know spiders drink! lol

Since he has no pinkies, he’s holding a leg up to be a civilized little spider.

…Aaaand half an hour-ish later, Mr. Spider was found asleep in his milk. He was all relaxed-looking but sprang up and ran off when dad poked him awake. XD

That’s adorable

Oddly enough, I had once left half finished plate of cereals in milk in the open and when I later got back to it, i found a daddy-long-legs in it… I thought it was dead until it poked the plate and it ran off!

Check out the awesomely long tails on these roosters! These regal specimens are Onagadori or “Long-tailed” chickens. They’re a breed of chicken from the Kōchi Prefecture of Japan who evolved from common domestic chickens who mated with Green Junglefowl. Also known as the ‘most honorable fowl’ in Japan, they’ve been carefully bred over the centuries to achieve their spectacular tails, which grow to lengths of 12 to 27 feet. It takes these chickens at least three years to molt. Onagadori breeders take tremendous pride in their chickens and provide special hutches with perches well above the ground, which helps keep their tails clean and in good condition.

If Rapunzel had been a chicken, she probably would’ve looked a lot like one of these awesome birds. These extraordinarily fancy fowl have Special Natural Monument status in Japan, which means they’re considered to be living monuments of Japanese culture and, as a protected breed, it’s illegal to take their eggs out of the country.
