There are entire youtube channels dedicated to videos of baby monkeys getting brutalized and killed, and the comments are filled with low life scumbags who're getting their rocks off on it. Can we do anything about this?

So I wrote to the creep from Tree Rat Family and asked him why he has such a hard on for hating monkeys. He told me to check out his video essay explaining his in-depth hatred: https://youtu.be/yTFFOAQlV-8

tl;dw 3rd world shitter that has to compete with them for resources and identifies with them too much. He approaches them emotionally not to dissimilar from a seething /pol/ack sees black people.

one little thing i wanted to add to this is that the western comments might not be american. many westerners go to south-east asia to find love, some of them even move there. maybe these western commenters are living in SEA and have been somehow influenced to hate specifically baby monkeys? maybe they are pedophiles who have escaped prosecution to these tropical paradises and are projecting their desires on baby monkeys.

Why does my cat look fat when he lays down?
It worries me sometimes, as in doubting whether or not he is overweight.

But I've seen actually fat cats before and I'm pretty sure he isn't, because when he stands on his paws he is slim, and very muscular. Actually he is still very active , he can move and jump wherever he wants and doesn't any trouble grooming himself.
He is also very tall(practically 50cm no kidding) which is why I think he looks like this, but I'm not sure, maybe his belly is of an overweight cat? But it's only apparent when he is like this.

The causes for face swelling are various. If I wasn't sure that a bee actually stung him, I wouldn't waste more days and I would call a vet.
>>3371071
When a slim human lays down they also look fatter. Ever tried to look at your thighs when you're sitting on a chair?
An accurate way to know if you kot is a bit overweight would be to weigh him, of course.

>>3370382
No, that's okay. While I even enjoy the rude dogs that come out of nowhere and jump on you my friend is deadly afraid of dogs so I can see the problem.

As long as people make sure their dog is not one of those and ask people they meet on a walk from afar if it's okay to leave the dog off leash it's okay.
Just like people should ask the owner if it's okay to make contact with the dog.

>>3370171
Well, there are no signs that a dog should be on the leash. So of course I put mu dog off the leash.

Kek'd, i hate this threads too

Let's put on our tinfoil hats here. Would non-avian dinosaurs be successful today if the were suddenly plopped back on Earth today? If yay or nay, which species would do the best? I think Ankylosaurids/Nodosaurids, Sauropods, Ceratopsians and small to medium sized theropods (medium being Ceratosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Carnotaurus, Allosaurus and Daspletosaurus being the upper limit etc) would adapt well assuming they can adjust to new food sources.

Beyond Dinosaurs, I think larger Pterasaurs could out-compete sea birds entirely. I could see Mosasaurs hunting baleen whales and maybe putting orcas and other porpoises in check depending on how agile they really were

there arent any large forests left to sustain large sauropods and the largest Hadrosaurs. smaller sauropods, small to midsized hadrosaurids and relatives (Ouranosaurus, Zalmoxes, Telmatosaurus, Corythosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Maiasaura, Muttaburrasaurus, Prosaurolophus) could however be managable relatively well. but some forest and bioshere reconstruction might help them out greatly.

ceratopsids, and stegosaurs could probably be brought back rather confortably without putting to much of a strain on the current enviorment and would not really compete with similar, Larger and smaller sized mammalian herbivores.
Larger predatory dinosaurs might be much more of a strain as their young often compete for niches of smaller predators wich would not only outcompete smaller predatory dinosaurs but also mammalian solitary predators like bobcats and mountain lions.
medium sized predatory dinosaurs(Allosaurus fragilis, Albertosaurus and various abelisaurids being the upper limit) might however be workable and fill in a niche on top of current predators.
dromeosaurs, as cool as they are would be boned for the same reason phorosracids where. smaller dromeosaurs might however be able to carve out a niche between that of foxes and coyotes and predatory birds and vultures.

read slower. we're talking about non-avian dinosaurs. Specifically not birds

>>3371199
not this again. Dinosaurs would not succeed in today's world, even without humans. They would get mogged by birds and mammals.

They managed to dominate their world because they developed a form of endothermy which gave them an advantage over any other animals, and they grew faster than mammals.

Current birds and mammals outmatch them on that aspect, and they can't go for months without food like lizards crocodiles turtles and the like.
They could find some small niche and maybe survive in a not very competitive environment, like marsupials in australia, but they wouldn't dominate shit. They were just a stepping stone
>>
>>3371199

Dromaeosaurids may be able to fit in the niches of various sizes of Carnivora but other than that I see little overlap. as a rule of thumb, if cats/dog can live there semi-wild, so could raptors...
