Appreciating the subtle and not so subtle physical differences between individuals or subspecies of animals. I'm not an expert, just a person who likes to troll through the internet to find interesting looking animals. Feel free to point out any mistakes. I am not accepting requests at the moment. I do not claim to own any pictures, and will try to link back to the source.

How to behave when confronted by a livestock guardian dog.

Very interesting, and check out the piebald brown bear with a nifty white collar! Ahhh I’m in love!
Reblogging this from my personal to add that the piebald bear pops up at 4:05, and I am still in love with it, such a cutie! And if anyone can gif that bear, I’d be very grateful!

this part?!

That was fast, thank you so much! Look at that cutie oh boy, it makes me so sad when I see pics or videos of funky colored animals and they are not acknowledged or tagged for their unique looks. Makes it difficult to find them in searches D: .

Three breeder male Banana Ball Pythons showing some of the different variation that can be found in the morph. Like I’ve said before, there really isn’t a high or low quality Banana, each one is an absolutely stunning animal in its own right.

Truly the Holy Grail of the BP world.

Just curious how the dog ear post was coming along? Not trying to rush or be a bug! I was just suddenly reminded about it while researching into windhounds for an art project, and was like wow this breed has so many ear variations, I don't even. When you have it finished it'll be a really neat thing to look at all the variations we've bred into dog ears alone, but also a cool fast ref for artist!

Unfortunately all the work I had done for it is in my laptop, which is too busted to use :c. I have to wait until I can find work and afford another laptop. I am so sorry for keeping you guys waiting, I’m so eager to make proper posts again :c. It’ll be working on immediately once I do get a working computer!

I finally finished it. @_@

Click through to the dA link for the full-size image, a much more detailed description of each color, where it occurs and links to images of each color.

I just stumbled upon this blog five minutes ago and I'm already in love! You cover so many different species of animals, some I've never heard of before--thanks for introducing me to them C: I can't get over all of the pretty snakes <3

Thank you so much, and I am so so sorry that I am still on hiatus! I really want to make so many posts, I promise you all I will spoil you as soon as I am in a more stable situation and am able to buy a laptop!

HumanaePortraits Match People of Different Ethnicities With Their Pantone Color

Brazilian fine art photographer Angelica Dass‘ series Humanae identifies portrait subjects from around the world using the Pantone color system. Using an 11×11 pixel swatch from her subjects’ faces, Dass matches them to corresponding Pantone colors, creating an abundant and unique catalog of skin tones that reflects the world’s diversity beyond the categorizations we have long been confined to. We recently asked her more about the ongoing project.

I adore these clean, simple graphics showing what goes in multi gene morphs on this blog. I highly recommend checking it out!

American Mink (Mustela vison) Patterns

  1. A colorful wild brown, with a dark brown face, shoulders, and limbs. It’s white chin marking extends down it’s neck in a narrow stripe. [x]
  2. This black crystal looks like the mink equivalent of the silver morph in red foxes. It’s black coat is ticked with white guard hairs, especially on it’s back and head, and has the trademark white chin. [x]
  3. Labeled royal silver, this dark mink has white undersides and extensive areas of white ticking. [x]
  4. A black and white mink. [x]
  5. A gorgeous black cross, it’s blue-grey body with a black dorsal stripe, black crown with white blaze, and white undersides and face. [x]
  6. Many colors come in the cross pattern, like this sapphire cross. It has a dark grey patch on it’s head, dorsal stripe, and a more even ticked coat than the black cross. [x]
  7. Jaguar mink, the term jaguar seems to be used for pied minks with high amounts of white. It’s head, shoulders, and forelimbs are white, with brown spotting along it’s back, and a nearly solid tail tipped in white. [x]
  8. This flashy spotted has the upper areas of it’s face and tail black, with spotting along it’s back. [x]
  9. Labeled as black crystal, I can’t be sure if this is the accurate term for this lovely mink. Pure white, aside from a black, ferret-like mask, an ermine-like, black tipped tail, and paws with black uppersides. [x]
  10. Marked as gletcher, this white mink is freckled with a light dusting of black on it’s  tail, body, and face. [x]
