Horses don’t care that you’re trying to get a good shot 😜 🐴 That’s what makes them great teachers—you can’t bring your own agenda when working with them. You have to observe their cues and develop trust 🐴 One of the many lessons we’ve learned shooting a story with @appstate instructors and Lazy Acres Farm as they teach an intro course on equine therapy.
Here is a great example for misidentifying snakes. This water moccasin is beating its tail on a dry leaf.. If there were more leaves covering him, or if he was only heard and not seen, someone would probably think it’s a rattlesnake. Tail wagging is a common defense mechanism for a lot of animals. Nonvenomous snakes rattle their tail too. Keep in mind, I’M THE THREAT! This snake behavior is not evil or vicious. It’s just trying really really hard to seem vicious. It’s respectful to believe them, and to leave them alone, but no need to fear them. Animals are more scared of us than we are to them. #snakes #reptiles #animals #animalbehavior #defense #defensemechanism #tail #conservation #education #wildlife #biology #herping #herpetology #nature #wild #snake #venomoussnakes #snakesofinstagram #rattlesnake #cottonmouth #watermoccasin #moccasins

New litters are developing. Here is one of the litters with their mother. The other pic is of the father. In real life he is a vibrant orange color. The gene for this vibrant orange is dominant so there are a few pups in both litters that are also going to be this beautiful orange color. I will post better pics of the pups when their color develops a bit more. #mice #mouse #cute #small #tiny #adorable #hobby #selectivebreeding #science #genetics #biology #ethology #animalbehavior #education #psychobiology #behavioralscientist #behavioralneuroscience #behavioralscience #science #biologist #research #sciencelab #scienceteacher #psychology #behavioralpsychology #scienceisfun

It’s rare that I ride horses anymore but it’s still one of my biggest passions. I’ve been riding since I was a toddler and it has shaped who I am today! And yes I’m riding in sandals in this photo- it was very impromptu 😂🐎 . . . . . . . . . . . . #equestrian #reining #nature #photography #landscape #desert #scientist #womeninstem #womeninscience #biology #conservation #horses #aqha #ecology #animalbehavior #animaltraining #ethology #preservation #naturalist #botany #geology #geography #animalscience #agriculture #animalrescue #travel #wanderlust
Love my job ❤️.”puppy” play groups. Great slow motion of canine communication. A lot of teeth and mouth jawing. Perfectly normal playful communication between two dogs that just meet . These two had a blast! #shelterdogs #playgroup #caninecommunication #goodpuppies #humanesociety #slowmo #slowmotion #animalbehavior #somuchteeth #lovemyjob

Hey momma, watchya eatin'? Muenster hangs out with his mom Rue as they wait their turn for a practice walk through the barn. He's still drinking mom's milk, but is already starting to eat solid foods too! Watching mom eat helps to encourage mimicking behavior, which teaches calves how to be proper musk oxen! #littlemuenster #cheesepuff #mimicry #animalbehavior #classisinsession ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #muskox #muskoxen #baby #babyanimals #calf #muskoxfarm #farm #education #wildlife #wildlifebiology #nonprofit #agriculture #sustainability #sustainableag #qiviut #arctic #arcticmammals #arcticwildlife #alaskawildlife #ungulates #animals #cuteanimals #funnyanimals #alaska #ak

Day 6: Off day in Idaho We made a stop at this awesome place, thought I’d make another battery powered amp video of another favorite Buckethead piece! Idaho is so cool!

I have been a little MIA recently as school and work have gotten busier. However I am planning to be more active and post some fun training videos and such on here, so let me know what you would like to see from me on this instagram account! . . On a side note, who loves the smirk Lucy (yellow lab on the right) is giving me in this photo? 😂 That face says, “Stop taking photos and give me chicken, lady!” . . #doglover #dogtrainer #dogtraining #dogtrainingtips #dogsofinstagram #dogtrainingadvice #dogtraininglife #dogtrainerslife #animalbehavior #dogbehavior #clickertraining #positivereinforcement #forcefree #fearfreetraining #animalwelfare
