African Elephant Plush – Animal Adoptions from World Wildlife Fund

Hey! So, I don’t usually address my followers in any capacity, but this is important. As you may have heard, African elephants ain’t doing so hot right now, and things are only getting worse. It is pretty depressing.

But if you want to help there is an easy and fun way to do just that! WWF sells these “animal adoption kits” at a few different price points, where you give your money towards an animal program of your choice, and in return you receive an adoption certificate and a goofy little stuffed toy. It’s cute, makes a great gift, and goes a long way. WWF is pretty cool, and your money would be put to a good use, so please consider getting one, or even simply donating directly.

Thank you.

King Cheetah.

The king cheetah is a rare mutation of the cheetah characterized by a distinct fur pattern. The cause of this alternative coat pattern was found to be a mutation in the gene for transmembrane aminopeptidase Q, the same gene responsible for the striped ‘mackerel’  versus blotchy ‘classic’ patterning seen in tabby cats. The mutation is recessive and must be inherited from both parents for this pattern to appear, which is one reason why it is so rare.
