|Think about it. When you eat a piece of meat, you literally eat a corpse, a dead animal. I’m not saying this to “disgust” you or to convince you of anything, just calling things with their names. We have been using the word “meat” long enough to make us forget it is a dead animal. This animal was alive before, and it was raised, and killed, not in awesome ways. --Laura Marie |
Now, when I eat, honestly, I am so much happier to tell myself that this meal didn’t cause any murder, does not contain any blood, cruelty, and that nobody is dead for my palate. It is honestly one of the best feelings in the world. --Laura Marie

—A quote borrowed from a friend
This was requested by my aunt. Enjoy.
Australia (and Australasia) only has about 1,500 species of birds (fewer than most other continents), but what this continent lacks in numbers is made up for by its birds' exceptional beauty and amazing behaviour !
Australia has three species of birds collectively known as "ratites".
- Southern Cassowary - a stocky and flightless; this large jungle-dwelling bird, that has black, hair-like feathers, a helmeted head (casque), a bright face and distinctive neck wattles. They are aggressive and must be approached with care; rare in Australia .
North Island Brown Kiwi
- North Island Brown Kiwi - Fairly large ground birds that are active at night (nocturnal). It is a shaggy, pear-looking bird that walks alone at night alone or in pairs . It has poor eyesight but its sense of smell is good and its nostrils are placed at the end of its bill .
- Magpie Goose - A large black-and-white goose that inhabits tropical marshes, rivers, and lakes. It is distinctively tall, having unusually long legs as well as a upright posture .
