Sorry for accidentally posting on /int/. In this general, we discuss Speculative Evolution Projects. My project for instance is the Kuiper II Project.
>Kuiperozoa has extreme sexual dimorphism, exoskeleton, orange Scandium-based blood and liquevorous diet.
>Kuiperoflora have black sap and generally somewhat resemble a cross between Bladderwrack and Willow depending on the species and type.

I forget what it's called so I don't have an image, but there's a certain type of plankton that looks extremely similar to a male stag beetle. I think it might have been some kind of crab larvae, but I might be misremembering that.

I've always been fascinated by the blue heeler, or Australian Cattle Dog, as it's commonly known. They are one of the most aggressive breeds of dog out there, and that's not just because they were bred to work with cattle.

These dogs were bred to be aggressive protectors of their family and their territory. They are known for their biting tendencies, and they can be quite dangerous if not properly trained or supervised.

One thing to keep in mind is that these dogs are very territorial. They will bark and growl when they are angry or stressed, and they will not hesitate to attack if they feel their territory is being threatened.

On top of that, they have Bull Terrier/Pit Bull in their foundation stock and this can be seen in their temperament and behavior.

Breed standard ACD.
>>
>>4311518
They're fantastic dogs when given appropriate outlets for their energy. Most aggression comes from improper socialization or lack of outlets anyway

>>4312352
They love fetch but a dog that's sneaking up on your heels isn't trained properly. That's an owner who didn't hone in on some of their instincts and never gave firm discipline on what they do and don't nip at.

My GSP knows how to open certain locked doors and would've figured out more if I hadn't stopped that shit. I commonly found her with the front door open until I switched knobs. Wish she could met my college buddies Heeler
>>
>>4313731

The hound mix can get both the round knobs and the levers unlocked and opened from the inside...so I installed flip-locks. That stopped him. He and two of the ACDs can get in from the outside if the doors are unlocked.

neato thanks, looks like they're not usually as far west as I am. hadn't seen one before

A 84-year-old neighbor of mine passed away, and her son started leasing her place out. Soon after, hoodlums moved in and brought their pit bulls, which all died vomiting blood. It was awful to see. Then, a few weeks later, the same thing happened to the pups. Do you think it might be something they're eating? It's such a sad case that they keep dying.

tigers are a greater threat to human life than any other predator we've extirpated. they only live where there are no people, or where people aren't allowed to have guns (one part they would kill the remaining tigers, one part they would overthrow their government).

>>4313727
felines are better murderers but worse companions. evolution has streamlined them and gotten rid of most traits they don't need to kill stuff.

housecats are just the ones that were shitty at being felines so they rely on us and our abundant, docile vermin to eat. 1/3 the hunt success rate of their 10,000 years removed wild ancestor, smaller brain, easier prey to larger cats and dogs, etc...
