I just found out that there is a type of owl that lives in burrows that it digs by itself.I guess this thread is for posting interesting animal facts that you don't think a lot of people are aware of.
despite being 13% of the population pitbulls committ 50% of the bitings
>>3023053Theres one of those in my uni. I'll send a picture of it later if the thread is still alive. Looks just like the one on your pic.
>>3023058That would be pretty sweet. I just saw a few videos of them on youtube, and the little things are super cute.
>>3023053Chinese water deer have loosely rooted tusks that can be drawn back when out of combat
The black footed cat is the most lethal cat species, catching it's prey 60% of the time
>>3023177I appreciate that peak cat also happens to be fucking adorable
>>3023206Oh they're so adorable, you just want to cuddle them so badlyhttps://youtu.be/nl8o9PsJPAQ
>>3023230I've never witnessed cuter murder
>>3023053Some species of deep sea dragonfish have "headlights" that emit red light. Their prey cannot see red light, allowing dragonfish to see prey without being seen themselves.
>>3023261that's pretty cool
>>3023057Fpbp >>3023053Killdeer pretend their wings are broken to protect their children and sacrifice themselves Found him a week ago
>>3023296>facts only pls
This bird is not sick or dying, loons legs are so far back on their bodies due to being so heavily adapted for diving that they cannot walk normally on land.https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=60&v=zK16GLWOAyc
>>3023305>Killdeerwhat a crazy name for a small bird
I remember when one anon found one of those owls hanging around a median in a parking lot and thought it was hurt because it "only has one leg". Turns out it was just cold.
>>3023332I fucking LOVE loons, and I just learned this now!They're probably my favorite waterfowl.
>>3023332Could we watch loons to study hesperornis? They look pretty similar, except that loons can fly.
>>3023159I didn't know it could move its tusks. Honestly, that just looks like a heavy injury waiting to happen.
That one guy is still owing me pics of that burrowing owl, so bump.
>>3023053just be cozy as fuck when a dumb mouse wanders into the kill cave
>>3024351not that anon but I saw a little round owl on a park nearby a while ago, it was absolutely adorable. It was too dark to take pics tough. I don't know if it's the same species from OP but looked similar.
>>3024351Lol I'll see if I can catch it tomorrow. Had no class today.
>>3023177At first I thought it's not that high, almost a coin flip, but then I remembered that our combustion engines started to approach and hit 60% efficiency relatively recently.
>>3023053Ive seen ground owls in the Mojave Desert a few times, always a real treat, theyre little killers
>>3024596Our best engines are at 38%
>>3023844>loons can flyBarely. They’re absolutely terrible at flying, and part of the reason their habitat is so restrictive is because they cannot take off without several hundred feet of water. This can lead to situations where a loon will accidentally land in a lake that is slightly too small, and it will be physically unable to escape.Fucking love loons, literally the only good part of this horrible state.
>>3024714There's something I love about animals that are weirdly specifically adapted for a very particular way of life.Like it shows the blindness of nature that an animal can evolve in such a way that it can completely fuck itself over.>loons>checkmate theists
>>3024866t. relies on stuff made by previously existing humans to survive and wouldn't be able to on its own
>>3024862What a cute hooter. Looks like a wide hawk who was taken aback.Thanks for this one, Anon!
>>3024875>ok>yes>responding to anything containing the phrase "checkmate thiest/athiest"what is your purpose here with this
>>3024689Higher. And combined cycles can increase whole combo efficiency to 60ish %
I had two of those owls right by my house when I lived in Dublin, CA. They were in a burrow in a dust lot outside my complex. I named them Fred and Wilma cause the hole looked like a Flintstones window
