Carrot and Mouse go hard

Mushrooms growing alongside one of my houseplants. Going to take spore prints, but any guesses on what this could be?

Is it taking nutrients from my plant or is this an indication of good soil health?

No. It's eating the little wood chips mixed in the potting soil.

In fact, i believe the mycelium will beak down the wood chips faster and make more nutrients available to the plant

Only retics have confirmed kill and consume cases and they are few, some of them are probably wrong place-wrong time cases. (farmer girl faints and retic stumbles upon unconscious human's heat signature and eats them for example)
All the victims are of small stature and lean af as well due to them being south east asian locals.
Giant snakes could possibly kill a grown human, but not eat them, the shoulders alone are too wide to allow for it.
None of the other species you mentioned have proven kill records, let alone cases of human consumption.

Look familiar? This is what the original Bull and Terriers looked like.

>ITT We Discuss Bull-Type Terrier origins

I cracked the code about Bull-Type Terriers. The Whippet was used in the foundation stock. They are in the same breed family as Greyhounds (known for being muzzled around other dogs)

Alright. Why you pretend that cats should do more than being cute? They literally don't need dogs intelligence

>The part where dogs have strong social intelligence is when it comes to hierarchies
They're fantastically good at reading human body language in general. They understand pointing better than any other animal, and will near instantly know what attitude is appropriate when you're approached by another human being.

Works the other way around as well - people have a much easier time reading dog body language than any other species.
>>
And to answer OP: They're smarter than anything except for most dogs and some birds, and they're funny as well as cute. Cats are great pets, and fit the lifestyle of most people better than dogs these days.

That said, a good dog with a good owner will provide much more of both companionship and utility than a cat ever could. Just as a poor dog with a poor owner will provide more misery than a cat could.
