I learned yesterday that when you see a bee on the ground that isn’t moving, it’s not necessarily dead, it’s probably just dead tired from carrying lots of pollen and needs re-energising. So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way. Bizarrely, this exact thing happened today! I found a knackered bee, mixed up some sugar water, gave it a drink and watched it guzzle and guzzle then suddenly come back to life. It was amazing! Thank you patrick, it was an excellent tip that i’ll never forget and will continue to pass on to others!
boost this because look bEES ARE DYING AND WE REALLY NEED TO HELP THEM!!!!!!
Help them, sweetlings!
Rare golden tabby tiger, I’m sure you can have fun with this one…..there is no subspecies of tiger with that name. XD my guess is normal & white Bengal mix?
Golden tabby tigers are actually a color mutation of the Amur subspecies! Nevertheless, golden tabbies, along with white tigers, are ALL severely inbred; due to the severe inbreeding needed to produce color mutated tigers, they are all unhealthy and suffer from a myriad of health problems including (but not limited to) spinal deformities, cleft palates, club feet, mental impairments, defective organs, immune deficiencies, hip dysplasia, and bulging eyes. Clearly, the breeding of these anomalies for our own aesthetic is not worth the suffering they have to go through every day. These animals should NEVER be glorified or romanticized as that only encourages the cruelty. (Contrary to the belief of some, neither the internet nor media is harmless; glorification of these animals perpetuates the cruel breeding of them.)
Golden tabbies and white tigers serve no conservation purpose AT ALL. You will not find a responsible facility breeding for recessive traits as this means they can only do so by inbreeding. Organizations that accredit zoos (AZA, EAZA, BIAZA) specifically state that member facilities may NOT breed for recessive traits as they do absolutely nothing for conservation. There are only 3000 tigers left in the wild for reasons like the exploitation and inbreeding of captive tigers. Tigers need all the conservation efforts they can get, and breeding for mutations is not one of them. Boycott zoos that breed for color mutations as they’re breeding solely for exploitation, not conservation.
Shame on OP for getting over 17k people to glorify golden tabby tigers.
