Just Cool: Ninja Slug Fires Love Darts To Get Mates In The Mood

The World Wildlife Fund is hailing the discovery of more than 123 exotic new species in the biodiverse rainforest of the ‘Heart of Borneo’. Among them are an enormous stick insect measuring almost 2-feet-long, a lungless frog, and the incredible “Ninja Slug”.

Actually, perhaps they should just call him “Cupid”.

Scientists have discovered that this unusual invertebrate uses chalky “love darts”, made of calcium carbonate, in courtship. The tiny harpoons pierce and inject hormone into mates, and may increase the chances of reproduction. Also of interest: The slug sports a tail that’s three times the length of its head, which it wraps around its 1.6-inch-long (4 cm) body when inactive as if like a cat.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
