I have a website!
Call me Koryos. I study biology and psychology and I write novels. Right now my goals are to a) go to grad school and b) get published.
My blog is like 85% animal science and 15% video games with a smattering of kvetchy text posts so I hope you're ok with that. And I also like... write fiction... occasionally.
I KNOW I WROTE THAT CAT POST BUT I CAN'T DIAGNOSE YOUR CAT'S BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS PLEASE TALK TO A VET I AM NOT A VET
MOONY IS AN AXOLOTL AND IT ALSO SAYS WHAT HE IS AT THE TOP OF THAT POST QUIT ASKIN ME WHAT HE IS
I'm writing a webnovel called Darkeye! Scroll down to the bottom of the sidebar for the link to my website!
It’s frustrating to see people constantly term animal behaviors as showing “dominance” when the better word might be “confidence.” Dominance is a relationship, not a character trait; not all confident actions imply that a dominance relationship exists (especially when you’re observing two animals that have JUST MET).
Equally frustrating is the constant assertion that each behavior always has ONE meaning, without paying attention to context or anything else. Humans can smile in friendly or seductive or aggressive ways; humans can shake their fists in triumph or rage; humans can run out of fear or excitement. Animal behaviors can also have multiple meanings. Context, people. Context and familiarity with the animal and then knowledge of the behavior.
I know some people wanted hardcover versions of Darkeye but while I might be able to get softcover versions priced like $15/book through POD services the hardcover versions would be like $40 each soOoOoOooo…
(Those are pretty generous estimates, too. Volume 1 might end up exceeding 400 pages by the looks of things.)
I won’t deny that I did briefly fantasize about Mhumhi and Vimbo meeting a society of talking lions in the desert but no, the virus only affects canids.
Thank you so much, goshhhh, you all are making me want to start on the next webnovel right away… but no I shall persevere and EDIT for at least like a month.
Thank you. Thank you to everyone!! I’m gettin all goopy over here good lord I gotta go
