I had a great time. I went walking around a big city and window shopped and people watched and all that, and I got to eat lots of cheese cake... <3 I love cheese cake.
And then I went and saw Thor 2, then on Monday I went to Knott's Berry Farm (amusement park similar to disneyland and really fun).
So yeah I had fun.
November 13th, 2013 04:35 PMCruxWell, of course!
It was your birthday and all.
So, d'you have a good time?
November 12th, 2013 04:35 PMBrynjolfThanks :D
Sorry I'm late. I was doing stuff on my birthday.
November 10th, 2013 01:50 AMCruxGuh! Sorry, I thought I replied! D:
Happy Birthday! =D
October 27th, 2013 04:04 PMBrynjolfKomodos, tegus, crocs, monitors... All those sort of freak me out. :(
I do like them. They're very interesting/cool/fun to interact with, but I mean I wouldn't go picking one up or petting it. I'd be too afraid of being bitten.
If I'm afraid of getting bit by a tiny bearded dragon or chameleon, then I'm scared of a big animal.
Chams and beardies and other "harmless" insectivore reptiles have teeth but they're so small usually you cannot feel it.
Their bites usually feel like this thing on your finger at the most. They can draw blood but rarely
October 26th, 2013 06:22 PMCruxAwh, then you don't like Komodo Dragons?
But, but, those are some of the coolest ones. D:
October 22nd, 2013 05:39 PMBrynjolfThat's cool. I can compare it to chameleons wanting a vertical cage rather than living in a bearded dragon cage (big no no).
Yes I love reptiles. They're one of my favorite things.
I only like the insectivores/herbivores though. Carnivorous reptiles freak me out.
October 22nd, 2013 12:40 PMCruxHm, more or less.
The closest that A.dorsata has come to being domesticated was when the vietnamese started using rafters to lure bees in, which has become far, far less common now. You see, the Giant Honey Bee usually makes their nests high up, in exposed places. Tree tops, on top of building, even high up cliff walls, in the case of the Himalayan Honey Bee (A.dorsata laboriosa), so man-made bee hives won't really work for them.
Ahahaha, well, good! Too many people assume that all bees are these evil things that'll sting you as soon as look at ya.
Okay, I'm sure my bee talk is boring you... So, you like reptiles? You've often mentioned them! =D
October 13th, 2013 06:35 PMBrynjolfAhahaha, no problem? :p
Yes you really love bees. o.o
What classifies a bee as "domesticated"? The bees that have been "trained" to live in man made hives?
I like bumble bees because they're so fluffy and cute :)
October 12th, 2013 05:45 PMCruxSeriously, thank you. ;-;
I really wish I could interact with Apis Dorsata, since they are one of my favorite types of Honey Bee, they"re the only type of Honey Bee that has never been domesticated!
Apis dorsata laboriosa, might (and I stess that might), be similar enough to Apis Dorsata to cross breed, but there really hasn't been much gene flow between the two for a hell of a long time. In fact, it's a rather debated topic on whether A.Dorsata laboriosa should even be considered a subspecies of A. Dorsata anymore. (I say yes!)
As you can tell, I like bees...
and putting scientific names in italics...
Do you like bees, Insomniac? =D
October 8th, 2013 03:11 PMBrynjolfI don't mind large words. If I don't know what one means I can just easily look it up, you'll never know anyway ;)
October 7th, 2013 09:06 PMCruxOh, derp, yeah, I know that.
I just wrote it one way, deleted it, re-wrote it, and evidently failed when re-typing it.
I was trying to avoid using 3-inch words, since I've been complained to about it before. xI
October 7th, 2013 07:34 PMBrynjolfWell, you see, take the family Chamaeleonidae. The different genuses can't mate, they're too different. From family to genus, from genus to species, the differences would be too great to breed different species.
Take Chamaeleo calyptratus and Furcifer pardalis.
Both Chamaeleonidae, but different genus (chamaeleo/furcifer) and different species (calyptratus/pardalis).
Technically just because they're in the same family doesn't mean you can breed them.
BUT if they were the same genus, possibly they're similar enough to mate! Take Furcifer oustaleti (Malagasy giant chameleon) and Furcifer pardalis (panther chameleon) for example. Both are similar enough to each other to mate.
Bees I assume is the same issue.
October 7th, 2013 05:59 PMCruxOh, okay.
You should make a timespan gallery of it!
Awh, but that's no fun! Where's your sense of biological adventure?
October 7th, 2013 05:53 PMBrynjolfI would just collect rollie pollies, earthworms, snails, and possibly attempt to use fungal spores already growing on something.
I would breed just regular honey bees and then release them once old enough to fly
