i am sick of people mistreating their hermit crabs so this is a PSA about how you should be looking after your crabs and the standard you should hold yourself up to, anything less is animal abuse. hermit crabs are not first-time pets you can just stick in a bowl and laugh at for 2 weeks until it dies. hermit crabs are complicated and very sensitive creatures! they require a lot of work, maybe even more so than some reptiles and snakes. if you are thinking about getting a hermit crab please consider all of this information beforehand.

THAT IS FUCKING TERRIFYING WHY DO PEOPLE FIND THAT BEAUTIFUL?! THERE’S A BIG FUCKING GAPING HOLE IN THE MOTHERFUCKIN OCEAN AND WATER IS DISAPPEARING INTO IT WHERE DOES IT GO?!
*Under The Sea starts playing*
Anyone know where this is?
This is off the Island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean! And actually it’s not really a waterfall, it’s the underwater sediment/minerals and sand that is being swept off the continental shelf into the epipelagic waters by some pretty strong currents, creating a sort of illusion that the water itself is rushing over into a waterfall. It’s a pretty cool illusion though!
There aren’t ever such things as underwater waterfalls or rivers that are just made out of water since water is technically all the same density (besides fresh and saltwater) and the only thing that separates it would be the salinity and/or the thermocline!
But when water is actually mixed with something denser, such as hydrogen sulfide or perhaps salt water crashing with fresh water, it can actually form underwater rivers such as the one in Mexico!
…. And so it has begun. Tony Abbott has put the Marine Park Suspension into play, with dredging construction already underway to create Australia’s newest shipping highway, Abbott point, better known as the Great Barrier Reef. Completely disregarding the World Heritage Classification or UNESCO protection, Rinehart is removing 3 MILLION cubic meters of the worlds most diverse largest living organism and ecosystem only to build the largest coal export terminal. We are going to lose one of the worlds most truly precious gems to a temporary and damaging “solution”. The Great Barrier Reef will no longer exist because of Abbotts desire for CSG export income. So please reblog and share this to show your support for saving natures gift to the world. Wake UP Australia, and spread the word.
3 million tonnes of mud will be dredged and dumped in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. This will lead to more than 100 million tonnes of greenhouse gases being released into our atmosphere, seriously damaging efforts to tackle climate change. These changes will be irreversible and have extreme consequences on the environment. This is the epitome of corporate greed and monetary gain at the expense of our planet.
god fucking dammit why does he have to do this doesnt he understand ANYTHING jesus im so mad
Abbott is the biggest flog, why is it so god damn difficult for Australia to find a decent prime minister
I really really can’t believe how dumb someone could be let alone our prime minister, and what sores me even more is that we can’t change that for another three years.
This should have HEAPS more notes

‘Brinicle’ Ice Finger of Death - BBC
As sea water freezes to form surface ice, the remaining brine sinks, being much denser and colder than the surrounding water. As it descends, the surrounding water freezes upon contact, creating a ‘brinicle’, a frozen sheath of ice that grows downward towards the sea floor. When it touches the sea floor, it kills anything it touches, encasing them in a tomb of ice.
