A very unusual genetic color variation in white-tailed deer — rarer even than albinism — produces all-black offspring in that species which are known as “melanistic” or “melanic” deer.
Let’s be friends
a little less common name is called ‘photoshop’
um… no melanistic deer are very real. melanistic animals are very real. what do you think a black panther is? is just a melanistic jaguar or leopard.
trust me i was obsessed with genetic mutations in coat patterns of animals. melanism and piebald patterns and color points and all that good stuff. those pics are real.

TOES HAVE CURLED THIS IS NOT A DRILL
One of my best friends in high school - back when dirt was young - was a jouster. She would be fully helmed until the final joust. When she won, she would remove her helm.
The sound was heard throughout the realm.
I could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life
My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.
I need to remember this for uniforms.
Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!
THIS IS GONNA COME IN HANDY SO MUCH
the worst thing you can say to someone is ‘you’re too sensitive’ because that’s basically saying ‘you feel things more deeply and fully than i do and this inconveniences me because now i have to be more mindful of my own actions’
you’re not too sensitive, the world is just callous and stubborn. sensitivity doesn’t make you weak and callousness doesn’t make you strong.
