Seriously though I feel bad when my friends try to cheer me up and it doesn’t work. Like I’m just staring back like “you and me both are sick of this, promise if I were able to banish this shitty feeling I would.”
IDK IF YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS WEBSITE YET, BUT I DON’T EVEN CARE IF YOU DO.
CHARAHUB BASICALLY ALLOWS YOU TO MAKE A DIRECTORY OF ALL YOUR OCS.

It lets you store 100 characters (you gain 2 extra slots whenever someone…
When people tell me they look up to me I don’t know whether to feel flattered about it or to pity their poor choice in role models.
Everyone you idolize wakes up scared to be themselves sometimes.
Uromastyx likes her belly rubbed
this is a fucking lizard getting her belly rubbed if you don’t think that’s the cutest shit then get out of my blog
LOOK AT ITS LIL ARMS FLAPPING AWWWWWWWW
This animal is not happy! ): This is a panic/defence mechanism, this is probably really freaking the poor thing out. i’ve seen multiple reblogs of this post informing people of that, so I thought I’d let you know.
This is a Uromastyx, their defence mechanism is to INFLATE their bodies and move them as if they were “belly dancing” as they release air through their mouths letting a “haaaaaaaaaaaah” kind of sound until you leave them alone. If you don’t they’ll HIT you with their spiky tail.
This Uromastyx is exposing its belly on their own will, what it’s doing first is smell the hand to see if it’s someone they know. Since it is (remember the belly is the most vulnerable part of their body) and knows the person won’t harm them, it exposes the belly for the rubs.
And I talk from experience, I have an Uromastyx Acanthinura. It took me forever to get mine to trust me enough to allow me pet him and let me pick him up (and then teach him that my mum (he used to react aggressively towards her presence just by smelling her hand) that my mum was to be trusted).
TDLR; the Uromastyx in the gif trusts their owner and allows the owner to rub the belly, that isn’t how Uromastyx defend themselves
I get so happy when people with actual facts, knowledge, and experience explain things to those who do more talking than understanding.
I’m so fucking elated that this lizard IS actually enjoying tummy tickles. I’ve gone my entire life being sad because people kept saying this was a discomfort display. I’m so happy that the lizard is happy. I’m so happy.
The only animals who expose their softest, most vulnerable parts as a threat display/defense mechanism while also basically immobilizing themselves are usually poisonous animals or close mimics of poisonous animals, and Uromastyx is neither.
Usually such a display is also colorful.
But yeah how fucking cute is it that a little lizard will sniff your hand to make sure you’re the right giant
The idea that reptiles are dumb and emotionless is far too ingrained even among hobbyists and scientific professionals.
did anyone else think it was really weird and uncomfortable that kristoff had conversations with himself by impersonating his reindeer
Isn’t that what pets are for?
People who think this is weird probably don’t have pets.
I was more bothered by the fact that the only thing keeping him from letting Anna go off alone and possibly die was cause he wanted a new sled.
Like I dunno did that not freak anyone else out? It made his character seem highly materialistic and selfish.
A quick sketch for a friend.
