21 / trans boy / USA Personal blog of Simon. Art, lots of fantasy stuff, cute animals, cute people, space, awesome monsters, and some pda stuff for my boyfriend, Max. Also social justice stuff. Your mileage may vary.
I'm not white.
This blog is LGBTQIA+ and otherkin/therian safe. NSFW. I am transgender, so this is not a cis-catering space.
I am also male-identifying, so if you would prefer me not to follow you for whatever reason, feel free to request unfollows! uvu
Saiga is a type of antelope. They are known for their huge, inflatable, and humped nose which help them to filter out airborne dust during the dry summer migrations, and filter out cold air before it reaches their lungs during winter. They are a migratory species, migrating in the summer and winter and can run up to 80 km per hour in a short time.
Local people kill saiga because of its meat and horns. Horns are used in traditional Chinese medicine. Saiga is listed as critically endangered species and were once in the millions but today only less than 50,000 left in the wild.
I mention a couple of the reasons in my video, but the basics are; animal cruelty results in a poorer quality skin. Whether it’s living conditions, or the method in which the animal is killed before skinning - better for the animal is also best for the skin. Looking at it in the most objective way, better welfare and killing the animal humanely before skinning means their skin and fur is worth more.
That video of the racoon dog being skinned? Staged. The seal cub being skinned alive? Also staged. Don’t believe every shocking video you’re linked on the internet.
Oh, good, you did it! I was hoping somebody would actually do a demo video!
