ANOTHER ANATOMY POST! Only three vertebrate groups have successfully evolved flight: Birds, Bats, and Pterosaurs, which are NOT dinosaurs, and are an extremely diverse group of reptiles! Pterodactyl is not the only one. However, birds ARE dinosaurs. Avian dinosaurs!

Wings are not some extra structure you tack on to a creature and somehow the arms go away— they ARE arms. Think about that when you are designing creatures with wings and also giving them arms. That means your creature has six limbs.

Next anatomy post: The anatomy and evolution of DRAGONS. If you guys have any requests, feel free to send them in!

WE HAVE OFFICIALLY OPENED OUR RAT HAMMOCKS ETSY SITE! WE WILL BE ADDING SOOOOOO MUCH MORE, SO KEEP CHECKING BACK!

SO FAR WE HAVE 5 HAMMOCKS POSTED, AND WE WILL BE POSTING MORE VERY SOON!

Also note that we do have a few more patterns that you haven’t seen yet, and we also can’t promise that we will always have the same patterns! So get them while you can!

They are all handmade with love and care, and in a non-smoking environment so there’s no nasty chemicals!

Not the best pictures I know, but this is one of my boys! His name is Beau and he’s such a cuddle bug. Down at the bottom he and his brother Ishmael are all snuggled up :) I’m hoping to get pictures of my other two boys up soon!

The rats love getting the grain mix! I give it to them as a yummy treat every once in a while.

GomDoRi looks super happy about the food. His ears also look like he could fly away with them.
