Enthralled by organisms in the Sonoran Desert~

Big on cactus feeding coreids and cultivating low-desert native plants that aren't commonly avalible.

Ask my reasoning for IDs if you're really curious, or check my journal posts to see if I've mentioned the subject before.

"Camera“ I use is my junk iPhone, as my camera is wonky and glitchy. All photos in situ unless otherwise shown.

I am Muslim, and believe in the inherent sentience and value of all plants and animals, which means that I don't kill unless it is non-native, actively harming me, medically significant (and needed for someone's research), or is suffering in a way that will only lead to death. I do NOT collect for the sake of collecting. I get sad thinking about killing animals just minding their own, because what right do I have to extinguish any harmless life from existance? They all want to live, and I want to let live, so it works out.

I'd be happy to aid anyone with any projects they're working on, so feel free to send me a message telling what exactally you're working on, a bit about yourself, and how exactaly I can help you out~

I speak English, une bonne quantité de français, 和我的中文还不错(我希望~)。我想跟中国的野生动物生物学家成为朋友,所以喜欢索诺兰动物的人应该跟我聊天~
