The slow loris in Indonesia is in serious danger of extinction and the greatest threat to its survival is the illegal trade in wildlife. Its huge brown eyes and soft fur make this small nocturnal primate highly prized as a pet and the victim of an online craze created by videos on YouTube. Thousands of slow lorises are poached from the wild and illegally sold on the street or in animal markets.

International Animal Rescue runs the only slow loris rescue and rehabilitation center in Indonesia.

this is a picture of one of my bluegills in my 150 gallon tank. there is no photoshop going on here, it’s my fish close to the surface and he is reflecting off it. the best way to take pictures of a fish in a tank with  a phone is to put the phone against the glass and then take the picture.

notice his fin rot on the tail fin…i don’t know where that came from, all the bluegills got it, the goldfish in the same tank didn’t. strange.
