So old, so slow, yet (probably) not too wise.
The other night with the full moon, I was there in the extreme south of Madagascar watching these 2 symbolic Malagasy creatures living in harmonic symbiosis. I was sitting next to both of them all night and loving them both, like a triangle.
Both the Radiated tortoise and Baobabs have been living a slow-paced life for 88 million years, which city people are recently getting to understand.
Not only are these creatures slow, they are stubborn as w(h)ell. They’d stick with their lifestyle despite the fact that the force of uptempo pace from outside world had arrived in such remote “natural” habitats. The title of critically endangered species ain’t no scare any feces outta’em. They’d rather not to change to fit in.
Extinction of a species is normal. However, it seems it’s happening over 1,000 times faster than it’s supposed to.
