Allow me to introduce you to the Red-eyed Crocodile Skink. Since these guys were recently discovered (mid to late nineties), there isn’t a whole lot that is known about them, but I’ll share a few facts with you here.
These guys can grow up to ten inches in length, though the average is more like seven.
They’re pretty shy and choose to play dead as their defense mechanism.
Other than geckos, these guys are one of the only lizards that vocalize. Their sound is described as a barking noise when they’re in distress
We call ships ‘she.’ We call our war machines ‘women.’ We compare women to black widows and vipers. And you’re going to tell me it’s not ‘lady-like’ to scream, to take up space, to fight and demand respect and do whatever the hell I want. You’ve looked at nuclear bombs and been so in awe that you could only name them after women. Don’t try to down-play my power.
I want to frame this and put it next to my computer.
