This is from a mountain that got badly burned by wildfires the previous year. The hillside was already totally covered in ferns. Pretty cool to see nature rebuilding.

Maybe when it’s a huge emperor scorp and a small Chinese centipede like those videos usually have, but when we’re talking a 40+ cm S. gigantea vs a 20 cm P. dictator it becomes less of a fight and more predator/prey

Scolopendra is the only real choice here, runner up would either be scorpion or spider but only if it's something like Latrodectus or Steatoda with the benefit of its web

Mantis, obviously. The coolest animal in existence, except for maybe the crocodile. Which do you prefer?

>In a first, the US Federal Court has recognised animals as legal persons — specifically, the descendants of Pablo Escobar's hippopotamuses who have thrived in Colombia since the notorious drug lord was killed almost 30 years ago
>The ruling came after the nonprofit Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) filed an application seeking to allow two experts in nonsurgical sterilisation of wildlife to provide testimony supporting a Colombian lawsuit to stop a cull.
>At a Federal Court sitting in Ohio, Judge Karen Litkovitz last week granted the request on behalf of the plaintiffs, the "Community of Hippopotamuses Living in the Magdalena River".
>The ruling was based on a US law that allows an "interested person" in foreign litigation to request US depositions to help their case.
>"In granting the application … the court recognised the hippos as legal persons with respect to that statute," ALDF said in a statement.

You aren't a pussy that uses hand sanitizer every time you slightly touch an animal, right anon?

Nope, but that's only because my skin burns and breaks out in pustules if I do.

Fuck hand sanitizer.

>>3959075
Interesting. I do wash my hands sometimes randomly throughout the day when they're feeling greasy, that may be from the pets on pets on pets, dogs for miles, life I've chosen, but I guess I've never consciously washed my hand immediately after touching an animal.

with a friend’s pet or a random horse by a roadside fence? no.
an animal at a zoo or farm stand that’s been handled by two dozen kids with runny noses? you bet your fucking house yes.

We lost a dear and precious friend today. Please say prayers for Tammy, he's in God's hands now.

I never thought this would be so fucking hard bros, I just wish he could understand just how much I really loved him. I don't even really know what to say. I feel so defeated

I'm going to post a platypus every day until all of /an/ wants a puggle to snuggle.

First and foremost I would just like to apologize for my absence. I had to go on an extended remote buisness trip and wasn't able to post from there. I thought I would be able to but you can't chan on a government computer. I hope anon's can forgive me for the break in posting. I didn't find out that I was cut off until I got there. I am going to have to get my hands on a sat phone with a data package or starlink next time I have to go anywhere the internet is in question. I promise to do my very best to never let it happen again. It's my fault because I've been screwed by faulty promises of remote internet before. The last time I found myself SOL for internet was when I took my dad fishing out in the gulf of mexico and the charter "forgot" to mention that their satellite system was out of commission. I really should have known better.

Also thank you all from >>>3946544 thread for your concern. You all once again have proven /an/ to be the best board on the whole internet.

Old Cat's Dying Soliloquy, byAnna Seward

Years saw me still Acasto's mansion grace,
The gentlest, fondest of the tabby race;
Before him frisking through the garden glade,
Or at his feet in quiet slumber laid;
Praised for my glossy back of zebra streak,
And wreaths of jet encircling round my neck;
Soft paws that ne'er extend the clawing nail,
The snowy whisker and the sinuous tail;
Now feeble age each glazing eyeball dims,
And pain has stiffened these once supple limbs;
Fate of eight lives the forfeit gasp obtains,
And e'en the ninth creeps languid through my veins.
Much sure of good the future has in store,

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
