beautifulsnakes: Mangrove Snake (Boiga dendrophila), SE Asia
* Many rear-fanged venomous snakes have venom intended for cold blooded prey, and have what would be considered mild venom (as far as it affects humans). This species, however, has a fairly potent venom, forward pointing rear fangs, and is known to be rather aggressive in its own defense. This is not a snake to be trifled with. - Paxon

Pygmy Sea Horse
One of the world’s smallest seahorses, the Pygmy Seahorse (Hippocampus bargibanti), is no bigger than your pinky finger. These tiny animals are masters of disguise, using a strategy of blending into their surrounding environment to survive.

I remember walking past this wall and seeing the side of a decaying building. Now it’s an impressive work of art. A group of large murals have been popping up along the High Line in recent weeks and they’re all very well done. This one is the most colourful that I’ve seen so far. It’s a much more pleasant image to look at rather than another billboard with an advertisement for something I have no interest in.
