>you can see the back of an owl's eyes through their earholes>Owls can't also rotate their eye balls because their glued to their eye socket
Whales and dolphins evolved from dog like creatures.Horses would probably have become extinct if not domesticatedThe woolly mammoth was still alive after the pyramids were built. Australia sells pure breed camels to Saudi Arabia.
Komodo dragons are the last and smallest of the giant monitor lineage and will probably go extinct in the relatively near future
>>3943604Eh, more will evolve in their place eventually. We're not in a shortage of monitor lizards.
>>3943835They’re a holdover from a time and place without placental predators, so probably not
>>3943861We're the ones in charge anyway. And we want dinosaurs to be a thing, so we'll likely make something like that along the way.
>>3943429Giraffes tend to kill younger ones to secure their mates
There is a cricket with testicles that make up 14% of its total mass
>>3943429glaucus atlanticus sea slugs actually live upside down. pic related, the cool, colored part is their underside.
Turritopsis dohrnii are biologically immortal
>>3943604>will probably go extinct in the relatively near futurenot with zoos
>>3944710Maybe, but there hasn’t been great success with captive breeding compared to other species so far
>>3944787i don't really understand why they try so hard to breed them naturally.just fucking forcibly inseminate them artificially. they're just animals, they don't care about consent and don't fucking generally consent to the sex they get naturally anyway, there's always fighting and growling and anger.artificially inseminate them and keep them breeding as quickly and efficiently as possible. you can even just dump hundreds of young ones in the wild, since they're reptiles and reptiles are generally good to go from hatching.
>>3944800most animals can generally consent to sex pretty well, except for the pregnancy part, they have no fucking clue that's coming. they could even have sex for fun if not for the two pump chump males and evolved limited horniness window. i've seen dogs become sex addicts and pester males for more, and then heat's over and they pretty much forget it. i've also seen dogs in heat pester neutered males for sex the same way. they clearly have some basic understanding that sex is something that feels good and that they can choose their partner, so forcibly breeding most animals is just rape, plain and simple. they are not in a moral grey area where rape and consensual sex do not exist. just because members of their own species can rape them doesn't make it right. they can also consent to mating and often appear to enjoy the process just like us. i have also observed behavior like this in horses and cattle so I assume it's standard issue for smarter social mammals. of course i've never seen female housecats be too hot about fuckin but lions seem to dig it.i want to make an exception for lizards but part of me wonders if in those tiny brains they might have a glimmer of cognition that deserves respect
>>3944800You probably could. But Komodo has been kind of fucked over so it might be worth fencing off some large areas of tropical savannah in australia for them>>3943429There are suicide bomber termites
>>3944800They can reproduce without mating as long as they feel like it.
>>3944835well, komodos used to range all the way up through a lot of south-east asia, nearly to india.you could mass produce babies and just dump out in the wild, they'd live just fine on their own all through there.
>>3943429eyes of chameleon can move independently from each other
>>3944846They also evolved in australia. Only difference is australia has way less poaching and general environmental damage fuckery than south east Asia>>3943429Flamingos are perfectly happy standing in or drinking near boiling water
Humans looked like this at one point
Dogs are shit eating retards.
an octopus is as smart as cat
>>3945641>>3945626he can't keep getting away with it
Lissotriton vulgaris has populations which are fully neotenic
>>3943604>will probably go extinct in the relatively near futureWhy? Isn't the national park enough to save them?
Platypuses don’t have stomachs
>>3945766>building a jurassic park style resort that further threatens themNah
Rabbits love eating their own shit
>>3943429GR15 FOR PEPESHIT
>>3947145>that further threatens themHow?They are the apex predator there. The tourists can't hunt them and provide money to sustain the park.
>>3947506It’s almost like Komodo is a tiny island and clearing more habitat than has already been cleared is bad news
>>3943604They're a tourist attraction, they will not be allowed to die out
>>3943560The avocado evolved for consumption by long extinct giant ground sloths. It was barely holding on before we began farming it since their huge heavy seeds have no other way to disperse.
kangaroos have their nuts above their balls
>>3948112>WutTo cushion their brains from impacts, woodpeckers have tongues that wrap around the back of their skulls
>>3948112Spent like 5 minutes laughing my ass off at this
>>3948112Nuts above dick
>>3945608get back in that water right now you wet little faggot
Cheetahs genes are extremely similar with each other because it is believed 10,000 years ago they almost went extinct and had to inbreed to survive.
>>3948112KEK, good one anon
hippo's make their own sunscreen
>>3943604I blame LCDs for this
>>3950666Nice trips, satan
Sea monkeys are, in fact, not monkeys.
You can tell if a duck is male or female by their quacks. Females have the classic duck quack, while males have a scratchy "squack". and if they have the signature curly "Drake feather" by their tail, it means they're a boy!
>>3950677Those dubs are just quackin crazy!
>>3948112This is something is read if I were high.
Giant rats are being used to sniff out landmines in places like Cambodia. They really like bananas!
Pandas are so bad at sex that zookeepers have them watch panda porn.I guess their windows of horny don't match up usually.
>>3944688wtf Metroids are real?
>>3950691Makes more sense than using dogs. At least rats don't trigger the bombs.
>>3945766I've read that the land is actually dissappearing.
Pepe frog is fun and I like him.
>>3943429Opossums are bioluminescent, meaning they glow under UV light.
>>3950695Pandas are not a keystone species and should die off we should be more worried about other animals
>>3951090This is cool as helll
>>3947513Is that a Pokemon?
>>3945608i look like that now
Scorpions give live birth and carry their young on their back
>>3943429no bird can rotate their eyeballs. it's why they have perfect head stability, to be able to get a clear image. while mammals can move their head and keep their eyes focused on one spot, birds can't so their head must be as still as possible.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nK3pOggIA7s
>>3943429Tigers have striped fur and skin
>>3943429There are desert isopods that choose a mate for life.
