i do NOT post to the USA. not only would it be incredibly stressful for the snails to travel so far it is also illegal. the snails would inevitably be checked in customs (a parcel with air holes isn’t going to just pass by unnoticed) and then not only would i be in trouble but the snails also destroyed. i absolutely will not do it
if you really love these creatures respect that you are not able to have them. it is selfish to try to obtain them illegally
taumpy-tears said: I just ran over a raccoon :( I drove back to inspect the body and I put it in a garbage bag, I've been wanting to get into taxidermy and I perform dissections as a hobby. If I do want to preserve the pelt or part of the skeleton, I wouldn't really know where to start, except asking you for advice. My only problem right now is that I don't have access to freezer big enough to accommodate a raccoon corpse. Help me!!!
oh, poor raccoon
tbh unless i now tell you a step by step guide of what to do (which im not) i cant be of much more help while you dont have a freezer. im also not sure how i feel about the idea of you doing dissections as a ‘hobby’. it kind of feels a little disrespectful to me. i guess as you cant freeze the body cut it up and learn from it if you want to but at least bury the body or leave it in a wood or something
if you really actually want to learn about taxidermy i would do some field work instead of decide to dive in head first with the first dead thing that comes your way. im sure im coming across snappy or bitchy or something but this kind of thing really pisses me off. you killed something and now instead of doing the work yourself and really trying to learn you just asked a stranger. i spent a long time learning how to do taxidermy with no help at all and im not about to spend all that effort just telling random people what they should be doing.
im going to do a themed snail photoshoot next week to try and gain some interest for the babies. what i want to know is what what you guys like to see?
snails at the park?
snails on a ghost train?
snails attack a city?
snails having a picnic?
snail in outer space?
the possibilities are endless! suggestions welcome, let me know what you think! <3 <3 <3
feeling soft and blue
i was reminded of the little one the other day then earlier i thought i felt him run over my foot. it still hurts me so much, i dont think it will ever stop
there were huge sprawling concrete basements under the buildings like the bottom level of a multistory carpark. from above they will flood them from one small opening, a large heavy grate with a huge metal bolt that sunk like a plug into the ground. during the war they would feed all the children into it and leave them there to die. some would survive months endlessly searching in the darkness, occasionally bumping into the bodies of others. people above would use the small opening as a toilet until the waters became a stagnant sewer.
when we found it we decided to open the hatch to see if there were any survivors. a rope was lowered down then we pulled up one lone young boy. he looked about 6 or 7, his eyes had become discolored and turned a milky white. when he looked at you he looked through you. his body was autonomous but his mind had totally gone

slinky bath time!
(note- ferrets dont need regular bathing and should only have one if they really need it)
Anonymous said: just wondering, how do you know if snails are having sex? Like me and my friend have four snails and two of them have these white things on them and now they are pretty much on each other. I was just wondering if you knew.
honestly can you please google it as that i would do just to answer your question. i am not a guru of snails but just one person that happens to be in receipt of three massive broods and all i want to do is find them homes. i dont mean to be rude but i have so many snail messages a day now that this whole snail thing is like a full time job and i am already reaching my maximum stress capacity. sorry
please if anyone wants to talk snails message me on this account-
i don’t know where nostalgia molds into reality but i hear the song i wanted played at my funeral and for a second i am back there in that empty room aching to be fucked and taken from the nowhere land between childhood and adulthood like i ever felt anything else i was active within myself when i was very young and i went to bed early so i could obsess over sadistic fantasies while my reality contained a dark fucking shadow where i couldn’t move breathe or eat in the places that used to be familiar to me but now were the dry stringy ends of tobacco and shaky hands and Sudoku and the daily mail cross word with your gin and tonics and your endless fucking perverted friends that would look at me like a penetrative force until i was raped over and over again by your revolting little eyes
