Adorable but Deadly!

One of the world’s most bizarre animals is called the Hispaniolan Solenodon.

It looks a little bit like an overgrown shrew – it’s quite big, has a long thin snout and can attack passing insects with its deadly poisonous bite!

This nocturnal animal can only be found in two countries of the world: the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Researchers say more needs to be done to protect these creatures as they are under threat from deforestation and hunters.

Drowning in a darkness, of deep despair. Believing the lies I hear, and seeing the truths not there. See the rays of sunlight, they shine upon you scars. Reaching for that broken smile, among the hidden stars. Hearing the tear drops, falling from your eyes. Believe my hidden secrets, and tell my stolen lies. Bring me to the surface, give me air to breathe. Let me see the sorrow, upon my broken dreams.

Where do I begin? How you closed me out, or let me in?  You held my hand when things got rough but you shut me out when you had enough. You used me, verbally abused me, but you never let go of my hand. You walked and talked like a man, but I could see the child you used to be. The pain that hid down in your heart was ultimately what kept us apart. I was always there to understand, the pain you felt, but you wouldn't let me in.  And when I needed you to pull me up, you did with just a tease. You showed me there was no hope for me to get through my grief.
