quote 2018-05-25 11:00
“You're pressing too hard,” Bradley said in a low voice, from behind him.
Rory looked over his shoulder and was shocked to see him so close that, if he'd had the courage, he could have kissed him. “What?” he asked, not able to think clearly enough to remember what he'd said. Bradley was too close, smelled too good and his lips were just a little too far out of reach.
Unable to control his thoughts or his centre of gravity, he found himself drifting towards Bradley before he could stop it. Those lips curved into a smile, as two hands caught his waist and straightened his stance.
“Careful there, cupcake. You might headbutt your painting,” he mocked, shocking Rory back to reality with that unwanted wake up call.

"If too many documentary films and cartoons about the 1.4-meter (4.5-foot) tall emperor penguins (Aptenodytes forsteri) of Antarctica have colored your perception of penguins, fairy penguins will surprise you, and in a good way. Once they stand up on a beach, their overwhelming cuteness may very well compel you to babble an infantile string of nonsensical monosyllables while dissolving into a puddle of goo. First of all, these are the smallest of penguins, with adults reaching about 30 centimeters (12 inches), one third the height of the Star Wars droid R2D2. Second, their backs are composed of nearly iridescent-blue feathers, their bellies are white, and their cheeks have just a hint of blush, a plumage contrasting with that of the severe black-and-white tuxedo outfits worn by their southernmost relatives.

 

Further adding to their charm, fairy penguins hold their thin black wings out from their sides as they walk with webbed feet, looking as if they are performing a balancing act; which in effect they are, because they would easily topple over at the slightest push. (Please don’t do this, though. Remember: overwhelming cuteness.) All of these traits are endearing enough in any given penguin, but when multiplied by hundreds, all of them baby-stepping out of the surf together and looking like one big happy family, it is enough to elicit squeaks and squeals from even the most hardened anti-penguin cynics. No wonder, then, that a longtime fairy penguin colony on the seashore of Phillip Island in Victoria, Australia, has become a huge tourist attraction. Throughout each year, hundreds of thousands of fellow biped admirers gather nightly to watch the hundreds of these birds ambling up the beach in a “penguin parade.”"

If this use of alligator dens doesn’t impress as a form of protection, then think of alligator babies. That’s right: cute little alligator babies, which easily fit on the palm of an average adult human hand when newly hatched. Only later do they grow up to become monsters—much like how human children eventually turn into teenagers. Despite being so adorable, nearly everything bigger than a baby alligator—including other alligators—regards it as an appetizer. Hence these little tykes need defending, which is partially provided by their overprotective mothers, but also by dens. Alligator mothers stay with their offspring for as long as two years after they hatch, and if dens are nearby, they will use these not only as places with plenty of fresh water (which baby alligators need), but also for hiding the kids from trouble.
