"It's A Squirrely Problem"-- when I looked outside yesterday I saw an animal that I have hoped to get a photo of for years-- it was this Black Squirrel. In over 20 years this is only the second time that I have seen one on my property. But it is not a rare species; it is an Eastern Gray Squirrel with a genetic defect. The same is true of the White Squirrel; they too are Eastern Gray Squirrels with a genetic mix-up. The Black ones are melanistic and the white ones are leucistic. In the cases of my photos here these are not totally black nor totally white. Yesterday's visitor only had one gene for blackness, so it is black with some brown. In the White Squirrel photos they are not albino or pure white with pink eyes, but mostly white with some gray/black (hence the term leucistic). As you can imagine, a black squirrel in the winter and a white squirrel in the summer are squirrely problems. #squirrel #squirrels #squirrely #blacksquirrel #whitesquirrel #mammals #mammalsofinstagram #rodent #rodents #easterngraysquirrel #melanistic #leucistic #wildlifeofinstagram #wildlifephotographic

Great having Orca in the harbour this morning making their way to Opua for breakfast. Stingray on the menu.
You don’t see this everyday! Two triple whale breaches caught on camera. One by a man in Nova Scotia, and the second by a woman on a whale-watching tour off the coast of Provincetown, Massachusetts

PHOTO 1: why do humans drink water out of plastic bottles and not out of natural water sources like other animals? #logic #mammals
PHOTO 2: why do humans install light fixtures but still sit and study in the dark? very odd #isntitdark
PHOTO 3: why do humans sit in common hangout areas to try and get quiet time and studying done? they better not get mad when people come through talking and socializing #notquiethours #freedomofspeech
PHOTO 4: why do humans turn on artificial light to do homework when they have a window open allowing natural light to come through? #overkill
Coopers hawk judging me from high up lol
We haven’t talked about Nilla in some time so let’s talk about her. I rescued Nilla along with two Ferrets a few months ago. Nilla lived with the Ferrets all of her life. Nilla is 1 1/2 years old. I decided against changing her life and taking her away from the ferrets because they bonded together. THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN AND ITS NOT OKAY FOR THIS TO HAPPEN. FERRETS NORMALLY KILL RATS. But I personally watched them while in process of trying to get another rat and realized, she is actually happy this way. (again his should have never been this way in the first place though) She is very attached to the Ferrets and the Ferrets are very attached to her. They all sleep together and play together. Her and the Ferrets have had 5 previous owners before me. And this will be their final home. Nilla has unfortunately grow a small tumor very quickly... this is extremely common for rats. And most rats die this way. This was very sad for me to learn but her finally days, weeks, months, maybe even another year will be spent with her Ferret family and us. Rats are wonderful smart creatures and if you’re ever wondering about getting one, you should. But please only get specifically pet rats and try to go to an actual pet rat breeder. Feeder rodents aren’t bred to last a long life. This is probably what Nilla is. .

What the Whale! Effing Whale mate! These and many more puns kept popping in my flabbergasted head when I witnessed these monstrous mammals in their natural habitat! This one is a #humpbackwhale
