quick video put together to look at the shed skin and the freshly moulted chilean rose tarantula (Grammostola rosea) the video isn’t very long so i couldn’t put much information on it but i will make a better tarantula video with proper information on it another day ^_^ (by palegothicangel)
shallwesmile-deactivated2013041 asked: Hey! I came across your blog when I was doing some online research on the wildlife education and media course as I'm thinking about doing it next year, was just wondering wether you'd reccommend it/what it's like etc? Cool stuff btw :)
some bits were fun some bits i didn’t enjoy but it depends where you’re coming from, media or science background ect as to what you’ll like. if you’re going to go off and do a final year it’ll be educationally worth it. as it gives you a good grounding in the overviews of the 3 topics, but not quite enough on it’s own to be employable. some of it was very fun for me, like learning filming and it gives you a chance to do work experience at places like zoos (you have to hunt these down yourself but the teachers are in general lovely and will always help you out) i found there wasn’t enough media but like i said it aims to give you an overview of everything so there’s a lot to fit in to 2 years. it’s a lot of work, as with all courses, but although i’m apathetic at the moment as i have only a month left, i’d do it again. i’ve met a lot of cool people, cornwall is a strange place to live but i love it. the first year is a lot of biology, fun but a lot to remember, the second you move on to avian marine etc you get to do an event… look at my you tube as there are a couple of videos of our trips and dissection etc ^_^ feel free to e-mail me if you have any specific questions.
hi there ^_^ i have a steatoda nobilis or false widow that lives in my kitchen. i think that is what it is? my spider id is hit and miss, i’m good at the obvious ones, if anyone has a definitive identification it would be appreciated. i gave it a meal worm so i could film it, i live in mid cornwall by the coast, it’s just under 2cm (by palegothicangel)
