The short-snouted seahorse, Hippocampus hippocampus, is endemic to the Mediterranean Sea and parts of the North Atlantic. It is found in shallow muddy waters or rocky areas, in estuaries or inshore amongst seaweed and seagrasses, clinging by the tail or swimming upright. Many of the habitats of this species have been degraded by humans, and animals located in the habitat are vulnerable to incidental capture in other fisheries.

Oh look I doodled Renamon. This is how it looks like in my eyes, period.
No boobs, sorry, but I find all that “Digimon pr0n” thing disgusting to say the least. Personal opinion right here.
Elrond - By Jesper Ejsing (2012)
”The face of Elrond was ageless, neither old nor young, though in it was written the memory of many things both glad and sorrowful. His hair was dark as the shadows of twilight, and upon it was set a circlet of silver; his eyes were grey as a clear evening, and in them was a light like the light of stars. Venerable he seemed as a king crowned with many winters, and yet hale as a tried warrior in the fulness of his strength. He was the Lord of Rivendell and mighty among both Elves and Men.”

Flying snakes — for real. Above, moments from biologist Jake Socha’s TEDxVirginiaTech talk on the aerodynamics behind the flight of the Chrysopelea snake species, a type of snake that doesn’t need to board a plane with Samuel L. Jackson to get airborne.
Socha explains how snakes turn themselves into gliders through some very unique techniques, including flattening their bodies to transform their shape into a wing, undulating constantly to create stability in their motions, and launching themselves into the air by pushing away from tree branches.

Zuko: Uncle. I know you must have mixed feelings about seeing me. But I want you to know…
[he begins to cry]
Zuko:: I am so, so sorry, Uncle. I am so sorry and ashamed of what I did. I don’t know how I can ever make it up to you, but I…
[Iroh turns and pulls him into a fierce hug]
Zuko[bewildered] How can you forgive me so easily? I thought you would be furious with me!
Iroh [crying] I was never angry with you. I was sad, because I was afraid you’d lost your way.
Zuko: I did lose my way.
Iroh: [leaning back to look at him] But you found it again. And you did it by yourself. And I am so happy you found your way here.
Zuko: It wasn’t hard, Uncle. You have a pretty strong scent.
