A Kitsune is a mythical Japanese fox, it has the ability to grow more than one tail. The oldest and most powerful having up to as many as 9 tails. Once a mythical kitsune grows a 9th tail it also acquires untold wisdom and the ability to hear and see all that is happening in the world. Its red coat then turns to an enchanting shade of silver or gold.

@the_dmc_daniel posted to Instagram: Badgers mating occurs year-round, predominantly between February and May. But did you know that after mating, a process known as delayed implantation occurs? This means the cubs will not be born until January or February, regardless of when mating took place.  How very organised!

@the_dmc_daniel posted to Instagram: In the book titled ‘Johnathan Livingston Seagull’.  There is a common seagull who leaves the screeching life of the flock and evolves towards seagull godliness.

@the_dmc_daniel posted to Instagram: The dragonfly is one of the oldest insects on record - their relative species “meganeura” even appears in fossils! 🦖  In many tales, dragonflies represent wisdom, adaptation, insight, and transformation, though there’s some disagreement about whether this creature brings good or bad association.

@the_dmc_daniel posted to Instagram: Why do foxes have a reputation for crafty, behaviour?   They are part of the Canidae family, which means they're related to wolves, jackals, and dogs. But unlike their relatives, foxes are not pack animals. When raising their young, they live in small families—called a "leash of foxes" or a "skulk of foxes"—in underground burrows. Otherwise, they hunt and sleep alone.  The Cambridge Dictionary describes skulk: to hide or move around as if trying not to be see Arte Folk, Fox Eat, Animal Teeth
