The Largest fish that ever lived.
Leedsichthys was a giant fish that would have dwarfed every other animal in the sea, but it was a gentle giant that lived on the tiny shrimps, jellyfish and small fish that make up plankton. It would have swum slowly through the upper waters of the ocean, taking mouthfuls of plankton-rich water and sieving them through the giant mesh-plates at the back of its mouth. Its feeding habits were similar to the modern blue whale, which also survives on nothing but plankton.
Below is a size chart of its size compared to other large sea animals that were very large back then too.
to get an idea of how big this is keep in mind megalodons ate whales
IT LOOKS SO EXCITED
Reminder that community involvement correlates to increased depression in trans women.
In other words: people hate trans women so much that community involvement wears us down. Communities that regenerate and heal trans women are outliers. Trans women that get enough social esteem in other communities to make those communities good for them are against the grain.
This is true even though social interaction and acceptance is, for many people, a basic need.
Communities (any community) fail trans women so utterly that it is less depressing to go without community involvement than to try to involve yourself in one.
Wow that’s depressing
This is terrifying. We just hope that TBC manages to be one of those outliers.
It’ll take a lot more than hope to fix this, even in one space.
