Still a work in progress. This needs some changes on certain species and adding new ones. However we wanted to share it here.

A small guide of the Common Birds of Almeida. Enjoy

Bats are pollinators too, you know. Pteropus samoensis or Samoan flying fox. illustration by Titian Peale, from John Cassin’s Mammalogy and Ornithology. Atlas (1858) 
From eol.org:

All flying foxes of the genus Pteropus play an important role as pollinators and seed dispersers. Brooke (2001) describes this well: “Particularly on small isolated islands with low biodiversity, flying foxes play an important role in maintaining forests by enabling seed and pollen dispersal. Loss of valuable flying fox populations may have a cascading effect on native forest ecosystems.” Without flying fox species such as P. samoensis the dominant trees of these native forests would have a hard time regenerating and the genetic flow between different populations of each individual tree species would be greatly reduced (Banack, 1998).

Three idiots make a boat.

Love these idiots. Well..no offence to Brian, I barely know him but definitely the other two. 

And I guess I’ve heard enough “Brian eats crazy shit” stories to have some affection for the guy. 

I wasn’t into the whole album but this track is a beautiful stand-out of atmospheric sex.
