electricmegaloo Holy #vegan goodness! Vanilla bean ice cream sundae covered in hot fudge, cookie dough, and chocolate sprinkles served on a chocolate brownie! Just another sad, deprived vegan over here. 15h

electricmegaloo A little "opportunistic capturing" as I walk along a trail at San Felasco State Park. I am having fun at the annual fall migration bird count! 1d

electricmegaloo On October 2--World Day for Farmed Animals--I will be attending a peaceful demonstration outside of the University of Florida slaughterhouse, where kind and gentle souls endure indescribable suffering at the hands of selfishness and greed.

I will never forget the moments I shared with this sweet animal. I received so much validation that day, and in his memory I will continue to fight.

  •   alexismarita What happened to this guy? 2d
  •   electricmegaloo He was at my uni's beef teaching unit in the spring and was likely sent to slaughter on campus since then. I just visit the cows and show them some love every once in a while. @alexismarita 2d
  •   alexismarita Omg that's terrible. What the hell is a beef teaching unit?! :-o 2d
  •   electricmegaloo Yeah, I noticed fewer cows in the fields toward the end of summer. I would assume students learn the different varieties of cows, how to raise them and then slaughter? Not too sure. There's also a swine teaching unit next door. @alexismarita 2d
  •   alexismarita That's horrible. 2d
  •   monicavictoria Truly heartbreaking 2d
  •   xtina0499 Aww I love this photo! 2d

electricmegaloo It's great to be a Florida Gator!! 🐊🐊🐊 #justkidding 5d
  •   jaimesundquist Blah This is exactly why I just can't go through with anything veterinary related for a degree. 5d
  •   electricmegaloo Yeah, I don't know if it is worth pursuing or not. I'm never going to intentionally harm/kill an animal to obtain my DVM, so I need to look into which school's curriculum, if any, will work for me before I waste my time/money/effort in undergrad. I'd loooove to be a wildlife veterinarian but I can't justify bringing suffering to an animal to get there. I wonder if the few unethical, outdated practices in vet school will change any time soon? @jaimesundquist 5d
  •   jaimesundquist @electricmegaloo - I would LOVE the hear of them changing their ways, but I just don't see that happening anytime soon :( It's so irritating to me. I don't understand why it is even legal for them to do it in anything other than an ethical way! I'm in the same boat though - I refuse to involve myself in that. Which is unfortunate for the industry and the practices who really do care about their patients because now they're missing out on genuine individuals who would have otherwise loved to put their passions to work. 5d
  •   electricmegaloo I may just complete my pre-veterinary coursework and come back to it if/when some graduate schools change their approach to veterinary education. I'm not suffering through Chemistry 2 right now for nothing... @jaimesundquist 5d
  •   jaimesundquist @electricmegaloo - Haha that's what I'm dreading with this Biology major that I'm planning on starting in the Spring...me, math, and science don't get along too well! 5d

electricmegaloo I'm becoming a pro at preparing monkey diets! This was the afternoon diet for 14 of our 25 diabetic monkeys: carrots, cucumber, bell peppers, jicama, tomato, avocado, peanuts, soaked "biscuits" and a small scoop of soup we make (broccoli, onions, squash, eggplant, etc). We have well over 100 monkeys, so we go through a lot of food! 🍐 7d

electricmegaloo You really have to be aware of your surroundings here at the sanctuary because there are monkeys EVERYWHERE and they have been known to steal things like hats and glasses from people. Once a monkey has something, it's theirs forever. Sneaky, sneaky... 7d
  •   electricmegaloo I saw a monkey playing with a hat today. It was actually kind of adorable. 7d

electricmegaloo I found a freaking adorable little frog on @joeyknifes' Jeep after we dropped off Moe at PetSmart and we were both squealing but then the super animal heroine in me kicked in and I was like "WE HAVE TO TAKE HIM BACK HOME." 1w

electricmegaloo I just spent a couple of hours creating scent stations and setting camera traps with the hope of surveying carnivores in the area! This was for my Wildlife Techniques class, and we will be retrieving our data and looking at our scent station substrate in a week to see if we caught any carnivores (like raccoons and opossums) sniffing around. Here is one of my cameras pointed toward a scent station with sardines. 1w

electricmegaloo Unlock Hope is a partner of Think Humanity, an organization that runs a hostel in Hoima, Uganda for young refugee girls from all across Africa, many of whom are orphaned. Unlock Hope helps to cover every expense necessary for these girls as they pursue an education, including healthcare, food, housing, books and toiletries. Access to education is so, so important for women, especially in impoverished regions. The cycle of poverty will never be broken if women are not granted a proper education. I am more than happy to support @unlockhope and share their message on my campus. #unlockhope 1w
