Every night I go to bed thinking how I can help change the world and inspire people to love our beautiful wildlife and ecosystems! I’d legit take a bullet for any animal at any day and anytime that’s just how much I care for them ! Idk what kind of fire god set in my soul for animals but the love is deep and real ! I was placed on this earth for 1 thing and that’s exactly what I’ll do for the rest of my life ! Let’s all love one another and save the planet together as one ☝️ 🌎 @kodyantle TAG A ANIMAL LOVER ❤️
Whoa. When Caesar rose up in Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes to take on the humans I thought that there was no way an ape could ever be that smart, but looking at this has really blown my mind. Hopefully they don’t decide that they hate humans and manage to mobilise against us because I feel like we would really be in trouble if they did. For real.
For more of the same, check out this video of an ape brandishing an AK47. Nasty.
