If we had the power to do so, should we bring back extinct animals? Not dinosaurs, but things like the barbary lion, wooly mammoth, black rhino. Would it be irresponsible to bring back extinct animals and integrate them into the ecosystem, or is it our responsibility to bring back animals that are only extinct because of human actions?

YOU SEE .THEY ARE THE PROBLEM WHEN YOU STUDY HISTORY ....THEY ALWAYS STAND OUT AS THE DISRUPTER NUMBER ONE .

These nasty colonizers exterminated them for food .

The quagga is an extinct subspecies of the plains zebra that was endemic to South Africa until it was hunted to extinction in the late 19th century.

It was long thought to be a distinct species, but early genetic studies have supported it being a subspecies of plains zebra.

Europains settlers in southern Africa hunted quaggas in large numbers during the 1800s.

Quaggas were killed for their meat and hides and because they ate grass that the settlers wanted to save for their own herds of sheep and goats.

The last free-roaming quagga was gone from what is now the Free State, in South Africa, by the late 1870s.

The very last quagga died in a zoo in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in 1883.

I wish there were more giant birds living, bros. Both predatory carnivores and enormous herbivorous birds. Ostriches only max out at 300-400 pounds and there are no giant terror bird like animals. Mammal dominance is so boring. I would have loved to see how giant predatory flightless birds hunt. Birds have great endurance and greater visual acuity compared to mammals so probably ran after their medium sized prey then kicked and pecked it to death. There's no evidence for group hunting for any of the terror birds despite how smart birds are which is weird.

WHAT IS SPECULATIVE EVOLUTION?
Speculative evolution is the exploration and imagining of how life might evolve in the future or could have evolved in alternate pasts. It's a multimedia sci-fi genre that harnesses scientific principles to create detailed and plausible hypothetical creatures, ecosystems, and evolutionary histories.

I'm about to invest in a DIY "anti-climbing" fence to help keep predators away from my chickens. I'm also burying chicken wire to minimize digging possibilities.

I know cats, gray foxes, and coyotes won't be able to climb this when it's arched in this way. But what about raccoons and possums? They're able to climb upside down, so they can get over this, right?

HOW DO I FEED THESE RETARDS???
retards
My friend caught a couple wild Arctic Greylings to keep as pets. The problem is that the little niggers refuse to eat. First we tried mealworm & catfish pellets, but they wouldn't go for it. I tried some bacon and roast beef but they won't eat that either. I tried foraging for bugs, but can't find any. What do I feed them and how?
No I will not release them.

I've been putting out peanuts for the birds ever since winter and got a big amount of these tits to eat all day.
Now during summer as the babies are able to be independant, I notice that they quickly move their wings and chirp whenever they find the food. I thought it was to tell others to fuck off, but they still do it when alone.
Is it a sign of happiness? It reminds me of chicks when they are fed and just spaz out.

Neuroethology of the Toad or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Worm
Neuroethology
Gentlemen, it is time we discuss the neuroethology of common toads through their visual system; as studied by Prof. Dr. Jörg-Peter Ewert of the University of Kassel, Germany.

In the following videos you will be introduced to the fundamental predator-prey behaviors of the common toad, then you will learn about the underlying neural circuitry responsible for such behavior, and finally you will explore the nuance of the toads' neural networks and the effects of altering specific parts of the network.

In this first part of three, we will cover the toad's basic behavioral responses to prey features.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3Es9cNH7I8

You may also visit https://joerg-peter-ewert.de/1.html for further reading and full publications on the experiments. Much of the website is in German, however there are a few pages written in English as well. Click the "Toad Video" tab for an annotated version of this study's video.

The Curious Case of Foxtail Fern
Sprenger's asparagus
Something unexpected happened with the Sprenger's asparagus I had recently purchased. One of its "branches" (circled in red) dried out, lost all of its leaves, and broke off. I believed the plant was dying, yet it sprouted new, larger growth (circled in blue) at the same time as the "dead branch." The plant appears healthy, if not better than previously. Did the plant purposefully cut off resources to kill one of its "branches" that was facing away from the sun in order to produce new branches that were directly exposed to sunlight? I doubt plants are so capable, but I'm not very knowledgeable about them. What could have truly happened?

Am I stupid for feeling like people who boil lobsters alive are less human? I'm not saying eating anything is a problem, it's just how people go about doing it.

The thing in the image is called a crustastun and costs around $4k. It renders lobsters and other decapods unconscious in under half a second and kills them in under 5 which is much faster than a human in an electric chair. It's currently the only method I'm aware of for near instant killing of lobster. Because their brain which is made up of ganglia run through their whole body it's impossible to kill them immediately with a knife. I'm not saying people can justify having a crustastun in their home unless they eat lobster every week, but why the fuck is it normalized that people buy live lobsters at a grocery store, bring them home and then boil them alive sometimes for over a minute before they die, then feel good about themselves? How is it functionally any different from Chinese wet markets other than people feeling less emotionally attached to lobsters than chickens or cows (or dogs)?

I don't think people give enough credit to bony fishes for how scary they can be. Nobody's denying that sharks are imposing as hell, but there's a certain visceral fear I get when I think about goliath groupers. The way they use their swim bladders to bark, the way they do mock charges while opening their gill flaps, their lightning fast gulp, it's all just so intimidating. Then there's the Kaluga which is basically the only sturgeon species that actively hunts fish instead of invertebrates and has been known to eat seals. Their giant bodies and peg-like teeth which are unique to them, their armor plated skin they use to ram things too large to bite, and the fact that they live in freshwater which makes them far more likely to run into humans than a shark. Anyone else get what I mean here?

Senior Pets Care Thread
Bacteria, Good vs Bad
Hey guys. One of my brother's dogs (pit/lab mix) was checked at the Vet about a week ago because we noticed her eating habits were different recently (not immediately eating her breakfast and dinner, eating a lot of grass, etc.). Vet just did a Senior Panel and it showed her ALP & Lipase labs were a bit elevated. She told us to do a couple of things (like stop giving them Greenies and just brush their teeth by hand). One of the things she suggested was starting the older dog (at least) on Probiotics. She recommended Purina, but my brother hates Purina and Science-Diet ("Cheap Bullshit Brands").

Do any of y'all have Dog Probiotic recommendations? Appreciate it. Feel free to ask any other pet questions in this thread, ideally ones about Senior Pets.

I weep for the suffering in nature, especially that of amphibians. They inhabit a realm of exquisite miniature beauty yet are visited by mortal danger at every turn. As an embryonic polliwog, a toad graces the waters, as a noble adult it braves a cold universe that will extract everything from it. A frog inhabits reality in the rawest sense; their moist little eyes have seen horrors beyond the imagining of most humans, all in their small range of a few hundred feet, in that crazy micro world with spiders as big as your head and terrible, irresistible snakes like dragons. Look into their faces and see that they know many secrets. And they suffer a million cruel fates; they are squished, eaten alive, starved, carried off and boiled in the sun. I weep for their sufferings.

Is this a good long-term investment plan? I've only ever done personal gardening for my own cooking or having a couple chickens for eggs. I've never tried to actually get into a farmer's market. Living off the land and making money that way sounds like a dream, but I don't know if this is something you can choose as a career path or something you can just chip away at until it happens.

"Nice wish that were me women cannot rep" is irrelevant here since we are talking about animals.

I'm not counting things like the female in the species is highly strict on sexual satisfaction otherwise they eat the male, but rather the female forces the male to have sex with her, be it threat or by force.

If you could grant the entire human race one (1) self defense mechanism found in animals, what would it be and why? It can be something generalized like a venomous bite, sharp retractable claws, camouflage, etc. or the defense of something specific like armadillo armor, but it can only be one. Assume we also acquire the necessary bodily faculties/functions to use them effectively. Remember, everyone gets it.
