The Green Wolf

My ask box is open. I answer most questions privately, unless it's something that other people may be wondering about AND it's not something personal about the person asking. Feel free to ask me stuff about nature, working with animal parts in art and spirituality, paganism, ethical omnivory, sustainability and environmentalism, and so forth.

Be aware that this Tumblr frequently includes pictures of art made with animal remains, as well as occasional left-leaning political ideologies. Mostly it's nature photography and art (and not just of charismatic megafauna).

Artist, author, naturalist pagan, and wannabe polymath living in the Pacific Northwe(s)t.


I discovered neopaganism in the mid-1990s, and shortly thereafter began my work with animal totems and neoshamanism. Over the years I've wandered through various paths, ranging from Wicca-flavored neopaganism to Chaos magic, and for several few years I created (and followed) Therioshamanism, a post-industrial neo-shamanic path. These days I've relaxed into a more integrated ecopaganism, less about rituals and journeying, and more about the sacred in every moment.

I've also been creating various neopagan ritual tools and other sacred art from hides, bones, beads and other such things since about the same time. And I've written several nonfiction books on totemism, animal magic, and related topics. My newest book is "Plant and Fungus Totems: Connect With Spirits of Field, Forest and Garden"..

A few places to find me, as I'm all over the internet:

A new strain of cyanobacteria has been discovered in the partially scorched waters of Lake Alchichica in Mexico. The bacteria are believed to be unique since they produce a unique endoskeleton comprising of calcified lumpy granules.


Cyanobacteria, that process their own food by photosynthesis, predate themselves as far back as 3.5 billion years and have the notoriety of being the oldest fossils on earth. Also known as blue-green algae, Cyanobacteria have had great influence in changing earth’s atmosphere from hostile and uninhabitable to the organic environment that it is today. Today’s plant life finds its origin in these cyanobacteria. Some cyanobacteria are capable of forming calcified granules on the outside of the cell, counting those that grow on stromatolites (pillar like formation of sediment and microbes found in shallow waters). These stromatolites are known date back as far as 3.5 billion years.
