Before you know it, all the available real estate is shellacked with fast-growing algae, and the extremely slow-growing coral can't colonize these surfaces.
Parrotfish keep these blooms in check by beak-biting straight down to the substrate.
An “unusual” kitten is up for adoption after vets discovered it was a hermaphrodite.
Nine-week-old Bellini was initially thought to be male when it was first taken in by a Cats Protection adoption centre in St Helens, Merseyside in February.
I will be alone forever And you changed no mind here. You broke down, you cursed the day (Time won't heal shit) You should have done it yourself (Time won't heal shit) If you had wanted it done right (Time won't heal shit) You should have done it yourself (Time won't heal shit) Even though we ought to do it right We don't and we smile and we laugh about it Even though we ought to spend the night We drink and sneak out and bathe in the street lights You are my par No hole in one And that's perfect I still have won Those lists, I've burned Quit adding points For thoughts and words and limber joints Shut up and watch the young girl dance succumb to her belly dance trance You've been searching far too long for truth in a homemade airstream turkey Your husband's gone with your silverware They're in a better place, yeah, it's holy there A more violent place, it's true But what can you expect from Jerusalem? Don't break the silence with your pointlessness.
You were nothing more than anger made up into something you think is more seductive And you were nothing more than tempting like split second thoughts of jumping into traffic You changed no mind no here Help me, Maury. Help me, Maury, I was born alone or so I thought until, so I thought until, so I thought until The armies rise up, spears in the air They're marching in rhythm, they're far from scared Their armor is polished and there's a slight glare Marching together, they're no longer scared of you Hey Maury, we're no longer confused We have healed after being used and we have learned to use ourselves and we have learned to march together Hey Maury, we're uniting today We've forgiven everyone in every way and we have even forgiven ourselves for being born the way we were The armies rise up, spears in the air They're marching in rhythm, they're far from scared Their armor is polished and there's a slight glare Marching together, they're no longer scared of you We have even forgiven ourselves for being born the way we were There's a man working hard to make you a new heart You send him weekly checks to his factory downtown He's working overtime on your family's dime To make sure that it beats right and fits inside your cavity When the day finally comes, you take your husband and son And drive the station wagon to the envelope's address But there is no factory - just an empty mailbox And notice of eviction on brightly colored paper And you say "curse the day I ever learned to trust you and curse the day I ever learned to need." Time won't heal shit. When all is said and done, we made it all up All the wars and blood, we made it all up Religion is blasphemy.
But when it was old enough to be neutered, vets discovered Bellini had female as well as male genitalia.
Sonia Scowcroft, the adoption centre’s manager, said she was "pretty stunned" as the condition is "so unusual".
Sarah Elliot, Cats Protection’s central veterinary officer, said: “Hermaphrodite – or intersex – cats do not frequently occur so Bellini is one of the more unusual cats to be found.” “This may arise through mosaicism – when a kitten’s cells divide unusually while the kitten is a growing embryo.
“Such mosaicism may result in a cat with either male or female reproductive organs and genitalia, or a pair of mixed reproductive organs and genitalia.
Rumor had it that s/he performed the copulative functions of either sex.
Despite the ambiguity of indicators, the doctor expressed no doubt about his subject's sex and portrayed “him” as unequivocally disingenuous, as the perpetrator of a “case of imposture.” Although the individual presented herself as female, the doctor pronounced her male.
