Smart people leave africa the moment they are able to. It's a hellhole. Rich in life, but also rich in diseases, parasites, droughts, and fucking hyenas. Would you stay in africa if you woke up in the middle of it, even if there were no other people there? No, probably not.

The negro did in fact fashion a boat. He just didn't make a return trip.
They didn't even go to fucking madagascar until the French put them there.
Who do you think you're descended from?
They got out by foot through the Sinai, not by boat.

It's the smaller snout and big eyes. Absolutely precious creatures.

Apparently they're very successful with captive breeding so they aren't as fucked as the long boys up there. They may be able to get a stable population. Sad to imagine they'll never return to how wide spread they once were considering they're the only other living alligator and the American species is more or less carrying on just fine (barring that python problem in Florida)

Why does evolution happen?

>Evolution in no way attempts to explain where life came from.
then why are you describing it as if the process is an active choice of creation?
natural selection isnt necessary for evolution
Americans shouldn't be allowed on the internet
At some point the genetic differences between the 2 groups became large enough that they could no longer produce fertile offspring, after all they both were subjected to radically different selective pressures which encouraged selection of different traits in these ape populations. So it basically went ape species 1 -> ape species 1 subspecies 1-a and 1-b -> proto-chimps and proto-humans, as the genetic differences between the 2 groups got bigger and bigger. Exactly when this took place is kinda hard to say given that unlike what text books like to claim the concept of species is kinda hazy and hard to define in a way that covers all living creatures.

Unfair to judge sea world like those NPCs do. It was a different time, and if weren't for studies done in whales in captivity, we wouldn't know 10% of what we know today about them.

Keep it well-ventilated in a box of some kind, dry food storage is nice if you want something cheap (though you will have to drill out 5-10 rows of 10 small holes on the top and side, pic related) add some sticks, a bit of dirt from where you found it, maybe some leaves or other botanicals. And you should be good.

Jumping spiders will eat anything that moves, but will prefer flies. You can stick flies in the fridge with a DROP of sugar water to keep them alive for a week or so. You don't need to give them a waterdish, as spiders get that from their meals.
Depending on where you live, temperate climates have seasonal spiders, so it prbably won't live for more than a month or so. While (sub) tropical will have spiders all year round, so it could live for a month, or it could live for a year.

Happy keeping!

took a picture of one of these today. Very small creature so difficult to get it right. Fucked around erasing background nonsense as well, and made it look weird.
I squish all psocoptera in the house, and all aphids on my plants. All slugs that go near my garden are eliminated in the freezer. Roaches (native non-invasive species) and spiders in the house get put outside.
I hate this animal so fucking much.

Rest in peace buddy.

Shut up, stop saying this, I don't know you or your kitts but your comment upsets me and I wish I never read it. They will live forever and ever.

Little tabber looks very comfy, moo cat has a cute little face and lovely eyes.

RIP old timer.

>he doesn't grow and sell shrooms
Imagine not tapping into the easiest drug market instead of being a NEET/wage cuck. Just a single swab of the spores can be used to generate an infinite amount of clones, and all you need is a pressure cooker, coir, and some things that you'll find anywhere in your household. Pic related is a ~65 quart box that could net 400 dollars. It'll flush again at least twice, yielding 85-90% of the product from its previous flush while being continuously more potent. You could easily have an entire basement of these bins, and it takes only two months or less to get some fruit from start to finish, provided you know what the fuck you're doing. Plus shrooms are based and it's fun messing with genetic selection.
