I'm a international vet student. I'm hoping this tumblr will let me vent / keep me sane / help with procrastination for the next 4 years..
(Edit: Procrastination - Accomplished)
PS. I can sometimes be upto 2 weeks behind on really trendy news. I like to put everything into my queue..

“Vegetarian” nurse shark
Three years ago, when Florence arrived at the National Sea Life Centre from Florida, her caretakers discovered that she had a fishing hook lodged deep inside her mouth. She received a groundbreaking out-of-water surgery, making her the first shark to survive such an operation. But after Florence healed up, she didn’t return to her protein-rich diet. When her keepers offer her fish, she refuses to eat, instead stealing vegetables meant for her green turtle roommate. A nurse shark eating the occasional bit of algae isn’t unusual, but for a shark to turn down meat entirely is unheard of.
