Tissue Cave by TheMageOfMist
Tissue Cave
I put in some tissue to diversify the nesting material, and Speckles is hoarding it all in her corner and is building a tissue cave! It is adorable the way she darts about the cage collecting the tissue and putting it in her corner, and then digging down. X3

When your Diamond Dove thinks she is a Quail! by TheMageOfMist
When your Diamond Dove thinks she is a Quail!
I provide places for them to build nests, and indeed they did start building them before, but they lost interest it seems and decided to abandon the nesting areas I put up for them, as seen in Nesting Romeo, and decided to claim a pile of dry grass I put in as both enrichment (the quails love digging around in it and scattering it about the cage) and also as nesting material, as her nest.

Diamond Doves, unlike Quails, are not ground nesters and usually prefer elevated nests, which I have provided. XD I can only imagine what poor Lulu is thinking after spending time choosing the perfect dry grasses and lining his nest with them, for his mate to just look at the blob of dry grass and say "Mine" and plop down on it. Not only that, but she is being cuddly with Rex, the male Quail, too. I seen the two of them laying together on the dry grass pile while Fluffy, the broody quail hen in the box, glared at them both in envy!

Is there an inter-species love-triangle happening? Will Romeo choose Rex over the handsome Lulu? Will Romeo choose the hay pile over the wall nests!? How will Fluffy respond to having eggs being laid right next to her nest!? Find out on the next episode of Bird Drama! :P

Welp, I know the eggs are not likely fertilized. 

The female quail that was broody left the nestbox to stretch her legs, but decided she wanted to mate and was giving all the cues, body and head held low, scraping beak across ground while making low peeps... Though the male was clueless.

He knew he had to do SOMETHING, though he had no idea what so he either walked over her, causing her to do agitated peeps at him, or try and climb over her but slip and fall off. She was getting so frustrated she was jumping around the cage chasing him to the spot she wanted to mate at and doing the display again, until all the frustration amounted together to the point she about jumped into orbit, scaring the doves perched above them before landing back down. XD

Zoo Tycoon 2: Flooded-Forest Themed Aquarium. by TheMageOfMist
Zoo Tycoon 2: Flooded-Forest Themed Aquarium.
I was making an exhibit to keep fish in and farm them for when I eventually made the Spino one... They turned out to be more popular than the dinosaurs XD Stealing all the guests from them and making the normally full hub area a ghost town, as the guests refused to budge from around the 'carparium' to the left to get food and drinks!

It was also fun to make the flooded forest themed aquarium and I am rather proud of it, it seems the fish love it in there too! Though all the fish kinda lags the game. XD

Hello I am The Mage of Mist and I love to draw and take photos of random stuff. I am a hobbyist photographer and gamer, and do like to draw every now and then and RP.

I am also much better with traditional art than I am with digital, but have been practicing with it and have been improving little by little.
