Trying out Destiny ala sneaking onto the ps4 when my brother isn’t around. Fun so far, though I’m still really boggled on having to chose between ‘male’ and ‘female’ for the ROBOT RACE, like is that necessary. I tried making an androgynous female only to find that boobs are mandatory.
Why. Why the boobs.
I just wanted a cool lookin robot not built explicitly like a dude.

Challenge you to draw a ripple/current/crackle durgin

That is a lot of patterning lol. But hm okay throw a pic of one at me and I’ll consider it for when I’ve got time/the mood to doodle again?

I was curious, I often think of sharks as instinct-driven. Is there any evidence of learning or distinct individual behavior?

Wow, I have no idea how I didn’t see this until now! Sorry about that!

This is actually a really, really interesting question. Scientists had, for a really, really long time, basically assumed that sharks were mindless, instinctual killing machines.

However, in the 1950s, Eugenie Clark, my favorite scientist ever, did some experiments where she actually trained lemon sharks to respond to a stimulus. Basically, the sharks learned to press a target and ring a bell in order to get food.

This awesome lady also trained nurse sharks to distinguish between different colored targets to get food.

There have also been studies that have shown scalloped hammerheads, which travel in large schools, actually have pretty complex social structures! There are established hierarchies based on size and gender.

There was even a recent study that suggested that sharks have “friends”- that is, other sharks that they prefer to spend time with! AND that sharks are actually able to learn behaviors from the sharks they spend a lot of time with! (This study is actually really, really cool, and you can read an article about it here!)

So, yeah. Sharks don’t really have “thoughts” or “feelings” like humans do, but they’re definitely way smarter than most people think! They sort of do have different personalities (some tend to be more aggressive, some individuals more mellow, some more adventurous, more social, etc).

Of course, they are really driven by their instincts, but then, so is everything. But that definitely doesn’t mean they aren’t smart, or capable of some really amazing behaviors!!

And yet here’s another reason I love sharks. I believe that any animal is able to make choices through their instincts, this doesn’t mean they actually think, but maybe there is something out there we don’t know. And sharks are no exeption. There is yet too much to learn about them and this type of behavior always surprises me.

that feel when photoshop crashes right when you realize ‘hmm wow i’ve been working on this for two hours, better save’

I’ve barely read anything on FR lore so I don’t know what the whole exalting thing is really about but I like to imagine that my clan is running basically a sacrificial chop shop with how often I snap up and exalt dragons
