Allow me to introduce you to the Red-eyed Crocodile Skink.
Since these guys were recently discovered (mid to late nineties), there isn’t a whole lot that is known about them, but I’ll share a few facts with you here.
- These guys can grow up to ten inches in length, though the average is more like seven.
- They’re pretty shy and choose to play dead as their defense mechanism.
- Other than geckos, these guys are one of the only lizards that vocalize. Their sound is described as a barking noise when they’re in distress
- Average lifespan is listed at around 6 years
resistance was futile
Update: YOU CAN HAVE ONE AS A PET.

Sex doesn’t alarm me.
Virgin!Sherlock is one of my favourite Sherlocks
because it’s not everyday that we see a character whose virginity isn’t treated like a flaw
Even if he’s not a virgin, the fact that he just eschews sexual discussion makes me really happy because you never get to see characters for whom sex talk makes them uncomfortable.
This. And not be shamed for it, either. Because you do sometimes see characters uncomfortable with sex, but then they’re always the butt of a joke. And while Mycroft does make the “how would you know” comment about sex not alarming Sherlock, that’s basically all we ever hear about it (and to be fair, that’s a rather tit for tat comment after Sherlock’s called Mycroft a queen).

one time my uncle bought a tumbleweed so every time one of his students made a bad joke he could roll it across the classroom
literally nothing ever sounds like a better option than sleep. there are so many books to read, projects to start, stuff to draw, chores to do, people to meet, hobbies to learn, recipes to cook, i could teach myself mandarin fuckin chinese, but i’d rather be unconscious
