Thank you for always being there for me. For creating what on occasion has been the only stable place in my life and for teaching me the things that truly matter. You’ve kept my head above water more times than i can count and you’ve helped me follow my dreams and to become the person I am today.

These two white Jaguar twins were born at the Ascherleben Zoo in East Germany on January 18th and 19th 2012. There’s a special story behind these two, if the fact that they are white isn’t sepcial enough. Their parents are rather old, and so this pregnancy was quite unexpected. To top it off, the cubs had open eyes from birth, which is normally not the case.

“By altering the structure of the carotenes and carotenoid pigments in the watermelon, the group was able to “reprogram” the watermelon’s genetic code to create a product with flesh in various hues based on a simple input in the first two weeks of the watermelon’s growth cycle. According to researchers, although the watermelon may look vastly different on the inside, the actual taste and nutritional benefits of the fruit remain unchanged.”
