It’s a pity that “Avatar: The last Airbender” never got a live action film.

Get to know me meme: 1/10 FAVORITE MOVIES: “TRAINSPOTTING”
"People think it’s all about misery and desperation and death and all that shite, which is not to be ignored. But what they forget is the pleasure of it. Otherwise we wouldn’t do it. After all, we’re not fucking stupid. At least, we’re not that fucking stupid. Take the best orgasm you ever had, multiply it by a thousand and you’re still nowhere near it. When you’re on junk you have only one worry: scoring. When you’re off it you are suddenly obliged to worry about all sorts of other shite. Got no money: can’t get pissed. Got money: drinking too much. Can’t get a bird: no chance of a ride. Got a bird: too much hassle. You have to worry about bills, about food, about some football team that never fucking wins, about human relationships and all the things that really don’t matter when you’ve got a sincere and truthful junk habit."

I haven’t posted much recently due to BIG EXCITING LIFE CHANGES, so I figured I owed you guys something. :)
I'm confused to how the U.S. Migratory Bird Act causes any problems if you find the birds already deceased. Is that illegal?
Everyone who can please take some time and report this to Florida fish and wildlife commissions (FWC) This guy killed a protected eastern indigo (drymarchon couperi) in the state of Florida. Which can lead to him serving jail time. Conservation can’t work if we got idiots like him killing indigos. The website to report him is http://m.myfwc.com/contact/wildlife-alert/ Or google FWC report.myakka Florida. Manatee county
This, is heartbreaking.
My name is Wesley James. I live in Sarasota Florida and have been hiking Myakka State Park for as long as I’ve had legs.
I have, in 23 years, never ONCE seen a single wild indigo snake. They are not only my most favorite animal in Florida but among some of the most rare animals in the US.
The eastern indigo is critically endangered living almost exclusively in burrows of the also protected and also declining gopher tortoise(Gopherus polyphemus) which has had much of its habitat destroyed due to urban development. They are a harmless but large black colubrid, the largest in the US in fact, and often killed because of their imposing size. Anyone who has spent time with these animals knows however that they are quite docile and not inclined to bite at all. These animals are in extreme decline from all fronts due to a number of causes and unfortunately among them people who intentionally kill them. This, this akin to intentionally killing a rhino or Andean condor in terms of both rarity and ecological significance and it gets worse…
Judging from the size of this animal it’s likely to be a female. What this man has done is not only killed one single endangered animal but taken a whole possible generation of offspring. Females of snakes are not only important for birthing new generations but often much less common than males. In populations of certain species the ratio can be 10 to 1 and in extreme cases (certain garters) 100+ to 1. Taking a female out of the wild could prove potentially fatal to an entire local population.
Please, even if you are not fond of snakes, if you love animals understand that what this person has done is terrible, illegal, and damages both this species and the environment that it lives in. I love these animals, I love them with all my heart and the fact that this makes it that much less likely to see one hurts like losing a friend. I have several contacts in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission and will be reporting this but if you could please share to spread awareness about this species I would be extremely grateful.
Thank you. -Wes.
