OCEAN CONSERVATION POST

My first of several videos from the Ocean Conservation Group. I did some editing but the idea is to support this very important cause, I will post more information not only about ocean but other issues to Save Our Earth. Even that only God can really do this, but as individuals it feels good to do something for our own home and home for our animals and our nature.

WORLD OF ANIMALS-SPIDERS

Spider Bites: All You Need To Know

Many people are afraid of spiders even though we know that the majority of them are quite harmless. Most of them can’t even bite humans and if they can, in most cases it’s quite harmless. However, those of us who are scared of them just can’t help but be freaked out at the sight of a spider. And it makes sense. They look creepy. Those little round bodies surrounded by 8 long legs – it’s not a pretty sight. But the first step to fixing a problem is to admit that you have it. So if you’re afraid of spiders, just admit it. After that, all you can do is learn more about them. Today we’re going to talk about spider bites.

What Do Spider Bites Look Like?

Most spider bites look like any common bug bite – it’s just a little red bump. In the majority of cases that’s the worst, it will get. You might get a little bit of itchiness and maybe some swelling. Unless you’ve been bitten by some highly venomous spider in Australia.

How To Treat Spider Bites?

Most spider bites are harmless and don’t require any treatment. Even if you do experience something like nausea and muscle cramps – in most cases these symptoms will pass on their own and won’t require any treatment apart from disinfecting the bite. However, if you see massive swelling and blistering you should go do the hospital to receive treatment.

What To Do For Spider Bites?

Since you don’t really need any special treatment for spider bites you can just treat the symptoms. You can elevate the limb that’s been bitten to make the swelling go down. Putting an ice-pack on the bite site might help lessen the pain. You can also take an antihistamine to help relieve the itching.

How Long Do Spider Bites Last?

The reaction to a spider bite like pain or itchiness and swelling usually doesn’t last more than 2 days. And the bite itself will heal in a week. Unless you’ve been bitten by the brown recluse, in which case the skin at the center of the bite can turn blue and forms an ulcer. That can take months to fully heal.

How To Get Rid Of Spider Bites?

You can’t really get rid of a spider bite. If it’s a harmless spider that bit you, it will be hardly noticeable, to begin with, and if it’s a venomous one you just have to wait for the symptoms to go away and the wound to heal. But the good news is that spiders are really unlikely to bite and the vast majority of them are literally unable to puncture your skin.

How Long Do Spider Bites Take To Heal?

As we’ve mentioned above the healing time varies on the kind of spider. Most will heal within a couple of days or a week maximum. Others, more venomous ones can take a couple of weeks to a couple of months. It also depends on your reaction. If you’re allergic it might take longer for the wound to heal.

What To Do With Spider Bites?

If it doesn’t look like a venomous spider and the bite doesn’t cause you any breathing problems – just leave it be, it’ll heal on its own. You can just apply antibacterial ointment for good measure. If the bite is causing a severe reaction like muscle cramps, chest pain and fever – it’s best to go to a hospital so you can be given the treatment you might require.

AMAZING ANIMALS

10 Amazingly Cute Albino Animals

Albinism is a genetic condition where animals (or people) are born without pigment (color) in their bodies. Skin coloring happens because of melanin, and animals with albinism don’t produce enough (or any) melanin — making their skin and/or scales completely white. Sometimes that makes them look like ghosts, but sometimes it makes them look very cool and unusual. Here are 10 amazing and cute albino animals.

 

THERE ANIMALS THAT NOT ONLY CAN BE BEAUTIFUL BUT DIFFERENT, BECAUSE OF GENERIC OR ABNORMAL REASONS THEY JUST UNIQUE AND HERE ARE 10 OF THEM

Onya-Birri the Koala
Onya-Birri was born in 1977 in the San Diego zoo, which caused quite the hubbub at the time. Onya-Birri has a significantly cooler name than Snowdrop and Snowflake. His name means “ghost boy” in the Aborigine language. Although it is possible for any animal to be born with albinism, just like the panda at the beginning of this article — Onya-Birri is the only albino koala that has been seen.

“Jackie” Jackdaw
For a while, many people who saw this bird were convinced that it’s just a seagull. However, upon closer inspection it was discovered that this was actually a jackdaw bird with albinism. He was spotted in South Wales and named “Jackie” by the locals and by the scientists who studied him.

Claude the Alligator
Claude the Alligator is my personal favorite famous animal with albinism. Of the 10 creatures on this list, Claude looks (by far) the coolest. Claude was born on September 15, 1995. He’s 23 now. He is an “exhibit” at the California Academy of Sciences where he has been living for nearly 20 years. His chances of surviving in the wild were slim because it was nearly impossible for him to blend in with his environment.

Panda
The big news this month is that an albino panda has been spotted! This is the first albino panda to ever have been spotted in the wild, and it made the news on nearly every TV channel and website around the web.
Known for their black and white coloring, panda bears are adorable, chunky creatures. You would think that an albino panda would look like a white polar bear, but as you can see — it’s actually pretty clear from the shape and size of the animal that it’s definitely a panda. As of now it’s still unclear whether any more albino pandas exist in the wild, but chances are slim because panda populations worldwide have been on the decline.

Pinky the Dolphin
Pinky the dolphin is a Louisiana bottlenose dolphin with albinism. Unlike most other animals on this list — this albino animal is pink! Although his albinism is no different from other animals on this list, Pinky is special because his skin is rather thin, and there are thousands of little capillaries under it. The fact that they’re so close to the surface of Pinky’s melanin-free skin makes them visible, giving the dolphin this majestic pink color.
Pinky the Dolphin was first discovered nearly 12 years ago. Since then there have been rumors that Pinky has produced offspring who also have albinism, however whether Pinky has any kids has not yet been officially confirmed.

White Giraffes
Giraffes generally look somewhat weird with their long necks and skin legs. Add albinism into the mix and you get yourself a truly special creature! The white giraffe pictured above still has visible spots, however several other giraffes with albinism have been spotted over the years who have completely white skin with no signs of coloring whatsoever.

Moby Dick
The famous Sperm Whale from Herman Melville’s famous novel was white. This means that the famous Sperm Whale from Moby Dick was likely a whale with albinism. The fact that this giant whale was white is what made him special and was, in a way, the cause of the novel’s protagonist’s obsession with catching the creature.
Even though Moby Dick was a fictional whale, he was based on a real albino sperm whale that was named Mocha Dick. Mocha Dick was killed in 1838. His body was 70 feet long.
