a ferocious beast
i will reblog these everytime i see them because she is just such a precious little ball of predatory fury
This is a Klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus), a small species of antelope. They primarily live in mountainous areas, and it’s hooves are designed like that to allow it to stand on even the tiniest outcrop of rock.
its on its widdle tippy toes
the underside of their hooves is also quite rubbery and allows for better grip— it’s reported they can land safely on rock as wide as a dime.
also they mate for life and always stay by their mate. one will keep watch while another eats and are generally the cutest little things
i’m so upset
I just realized that the reason ghosts say Boo! is because it’s a latin verb
they’re literally saying ‘I alarm/I am alarming/I do alarm!!
if it comes from the latin word, they’re actually saying “I’M YELLING!” which is even cuter
do they speak latin because it’s a dead language
This whole post is golden from beginning to end
Reminds me I should brush up my latin in case Ghost wants to say hi…
