I'm Onyx, 25 and from Worthing, a crappy little seaside town in southern England. This blog is mostly for my photos, drawings, and other randomness.
Interests include animals, particularly foxes, (which I also enjoy photographing), taxidermy, music, (especially prog rock!), cemeteries and various other stuff. Yeah. o_O

This was my all time favorite show as a kid: The Animals of Farthing Wood.

When I was young, I always hated how animals in kids shows/movies weren’t portrayed realistically, but this show was the exception. They weren’t afraid to show characters suffering and dying, including animals attacking and killing each other, getting shot, poisoned, trapped, hunted, run over, and having their homes destroyed.

My favorite character was always Bold, the fox cub. He ended up getting shot, blinded in one eye, almost starved to death, dug out by a farmer, attacked by lurchers, and eventually dying in his first year. They certainly don’t show things like that in kid’s shows anymore!

It wasn’t all violence and death, though. There were some really great and funny storylines as well, and if you’ve never seen it you should definitely watch it! The entire first and second season can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/user/aofw10
