"The beauty and genius of a work of art may be re-conceived, though its first material expression be destroyed;

a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer;

but when the last individual of a race of living beings breathes no more,

another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again."

-- William Beebe, The Bird, 1906

My name is Reanna. I hail from Phoenix, Arizona and I am fascinated by the science of nature.
I am an animal rescuer and rehabilitator with a current focus on exotic species. I've worked at a Zoo & Aquarium as assistant keeper for small mammals and I am the Cat Nutrition Specialist at an Organic / Holistic dog and cat food company.

Animals i've worked with include, but are not limited to; dogs, cats, exotic domestic birds (lovebirds, macaws, parakeets, cocktails, etc.), ferrets, bush babies, kinkajous, tamarins, marmosets, foxes, fruit bats, meerkats, squirrels, sloths, agoutis, bettongs, porcupines, squirrel monkeys, ostriches, hedgehogs, tenrics, exotic small rodents, and much more.

I am highly fascinated in Zoology, Animal Nutrition, Conservation Biology, Animal Rights, Vegetarianism / Veganism, Atheism, and Animal Rescue.

I am an Atheist, Socialist, and Feminist.

My temperament and outlook on life can most easily be described by Mark Twain's The Damned Human Race.
Yes, I do value animals above people.

My life is very much comprised of animals, philosophy, and death.

I am making an effort to update my blog more frequently, and I always appreciate new readers and new people to lurk in return.

Below the cut will be a taste of what you can expect to see. (Pictures taken by me).

I'm always open to meeting and getting to know new (likeminded) people.
Feel free to add.
