- A quartet of Risbecia tryoni nudibranchs show the beginnings of trailing behavior, in which the animals follow one another’s slime trails, each hot on the tail of the next.

we want to be able to go about our day without constantly being on guard for casual abuse, degradation, and shitty behavior hurled our way

we’re angry because we fully believe that you can do better
