A snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus) peers through the underbrush. I’ve followed these animals’ tracks many times, but it took me years to find one in the flesh. They mostly feed at night, and they’re camouflage experts, changing to white in the winter and brown in the summer. With snow coming later and later due to climate change, these hares are finding themselves woefully overdressed.

Cotswold Wildlife Park Keeper Hand-rears The “Skunk of The Air”

This striking Tawny Frogmouth chick is being hand-reared by Bird keeper Jade Stott at Cotswold Wildlife Park. She took on the role of surrogate mother to the beautiful baby bird when, unfortunately, the breeding adults didn’t prove to be the most capable of parents. To give it the greatest chance of survival, the Bird section decided to hand-rear the chick.

More fun on the DF bug tracker

wearedevo:

The new version of Dwarf Fortress has brought with it many [terrifying], [inevitable] bugs. Some of them read like headlines from a surreal, Dwarfish tabloid newspaper.

  • Manager climbs a tree instead of going to office when management jobs are assigned.

  • Dwarf passes over stream. Perpetually wants to handle a large animal.

  • Large influx of babies from multiple civilizations.

  • New dwarves take impact damage on arrival. One died.

  • Dwarf likes to consume Unknown Leaves.

  • Lungfish may be able to phase through walls.

  • Macedwarf continually spits on a sleeping priest.

  • Vampire mayor revealed by statue.

  • Military Units strip from their uniforms when given orders to kill.

  • More vomit thrown up than possible.
