feelgood story for today:
there's a nonprofit group that trains gambian giant pouched rats to detect landmines.
they can sniff out the TNT with the precision of a dog, and they don't weigh enough to set off the mines. their handlers raise and train them from infancy; they've cleared over 13,000 mines in Tanzania, Mozambique, Angola, and Cambodia.

can i just say i'm feeling real drunk and soppy and that my friends are a fucking extraordinary bunch BOOST IF YOU LOVE YOUR FRIENDS

Sometimes wild elephants will wander onto a farmer’s property to munch. the farmer will protect their crop with force and elephants end up hurt or dead

However, elephants are super scared of bees. conservationists use this fact to help protect them

By building bee hives along the property line, the elephants are scared away from the farmland without being seriously hurt. Plus, the farmer gets some income from the hives and the world gets more bees! 🐝

the cleveland zoo got a new baby rhino, and it's both adorable and ridiculous

one of my favorite animals is the jerboa, a kind of rodent that is well adapted to living in desert environments. they are less than six inches long (excluding tail) and no more than a few ounces.

they are quick and nippy little guys, and jump and run in a zig zag fashion to escape predators. if startled, they can jump up to ten feet in length

they do not live well in captivity, but one day I hope to see one in person. I think they look like mini kangaroos!

my roommate is cooking dinner and it smells so good
