animal pics

Recently I saw an armadillo for the first time ever!

THRILLED to finally meet one. So I took some pics of him/her and the surrounding animals in the zoo.

Crikey, it’s a croc. (Or possibly an alligator)

Very angry meerkat:

Less angry meerkat:

A vulture friend

PILES of terrapins!

And a whole buncha phone photos, not as HD as the ones taken with the professional camera but still good to have!

Toppled Statues

I found this incredibly striking image on Reddit yesterday. (Today the whole site is down, incidentally.) I think the photo belongs to the Toronto Star. I can’t stop looking at it, it’s stunning.

Not so long ago British folks also toppled one statue of a terrible man, whose name I shall not bother to mention. At the moment it’s in a Bristol museum, in much the same condition as it was when knocked off its pedestal:

And I love that. I think it’s the perfect way to display these statues: no longer towering over citizens and also covered in statements about what kind of person the subject was. Perfect! After all if a statue can be preserved for the sake of history, why shouldn’t the same apply to protests against that statue?
