Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.
look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon
And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.
And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.
I honestly feel like I’d be more active if I made Dys an OC blog (since I did personally in drawings transfer him from homestuck to OC with a legit basic bio)
I’m mean for the most part I’m not even active on here, i try to be but it just kind of loses. Not even the people I follow/follow me are active they either are on an unannounced Hiatus/forgotten, or are literally just not active anymore. The fact I’M not in a hiatus is amazing. And like I’m not even the only one who has done that, but it’s not cause it’s a fad or anything I (and so many others) legit just have lost interest with homestuck even before this pause (which I forgot we were even on a pause)
like I love the characters but the story…it’s like….wtf is even going on anymore.
idk…I’m bored and it’s like late and just….hmmmlateight unnecessary thinking
i’ve literally considered making an RP blog for my khajiit skyrim character
