As promised, here’s the final version of the 2 page spread. I hope the text comes through large enough to be readable! If not, you can always check it out on my deviantart (where it is slightly better).
I’m sorry again that this has taken so long—and thanks to all the wonderful supporters who’ve liked and reblogged my Pern fanart so far. <3
My schedule doesn’t look like it will be thinning out in the near future, but I’m not going to let that stop me (just, maybe slow me down a bit.) More Pern to come!

This is General Dacon, Princess Amira’s bodyguard and commander of Sakhmet City’s army. Probably the coolest looking Tonu character I’ve ever seen on Neopets. Had a lot of fun drawing this dude.

I've had my budgie for about 2 months now. She's fairly comfortable around me but, understandably, still tends to be very skittish. Her nails are getting pretty sharp. I bought a little clipper for budgie nails and everything, but I have no idea how to clip them!! She's so fidgety, I'm afraid of hurting her on accident. Do her nails even need to be clipped?? Thank you!

Hi,

You’ve got a couple options; I don’t recommend trying to clip the nails yourself if you’re nervous or uncomfortable. Most avian vets offer nail trim services pretty cheap, and they are usually glad to show you how it can be properly done. Some use a dremel instead of clippers, but again, they can probably show you how to do it by yourself or with an “assistant.”

There’s loads of “pedi-perches” out there which help keep the nails shorter. Some are edible! Placing them in high-traffic parts of the cage (areas your bird walks around on often) will help ensure the nails are getting worked on. 

Nails and beaks tend to grow faster when the bird’s on an all-seed diet, so getting the bird on a balanced diet (if you haven’t done so already) can help slow growth.

Obviously, you don’t want the nails to grow so long they impair the bird’s ability to move, and the longer the nail grows, the longer the quick (blood vessel in them) will grow. This will make it harder to cut the nail short without getting some blood. 

Pet stores sometimes offer nail trims, but I would hesitate to take them up on this. Only go this route if it’s a store that specializes in birds.

Just thought I would add that if you get a sand perch, don’t get the ones that are entirely covered in sand.  One’s completely covered in sand can cause foot irritation as well as infection.  There are ones which are only sanded on the sides which should be used instead or cement perches are a good route to go as well!

REblogging on my own blog, because sandpaper perches are nonononononononono! Those “covers” they sell for dowel rods are nonos, also.

Posting once again! If you can donate as little as a dollar, please do! Please help this young man go to undergraduate education so he can become a vet!

Aaaand here’s all ten Ohio Biomes spreads, sunrise to sunset!  I’m not sure I can put into words how much I learned from this experience- from crash courses in texture rendering to communicating with printers -but I’m delighted to have been a part of it. And thank you all for the touching feedback over the past two weeks- it’s been a joy. :)

I’ll post some updates to this blog when the free educator’s/standalone edition of this magazine is printed and distributed- I need to work out a few kinks regarding regional orders and the like.  Again, thank you for the kind words, all!

These are so gorgeous and fun!

As a life-long Ohioan, they also feel very much like Home.

Ah yes, lovely representations of Ohio!

Please donate or reblog to spread awareness! Shevaun is a young man on the island of St. Kitt’s who’d like to become a vet one day, but to do so, he needs to get enough money to attend undergraduate classes!

unfollowed somone because they didnt like birds im not fucking around today

This is how I decide if you’re a good person or not and how I choose my friends.

Once, while on St. Kitt’s, I had to choose between two potential housemates. I was fostering a cockatiel at the time and told them both I had a bird, and they had to be OK with that. The first person to respond said, “I like birds,” and I was encouraged, but then he followed up with “but parrots are mean,” and he did not get the spot, end of story.
