Why do so many woodland creatures like to sleep on the side of the road?

Every time I have to drive I see so many deer, possums, raccoons, and squirrels sleeping on the side of the road. Don't they know that it's dangerous to sleep there? It's also very noisy, I don't understand how they can just sleep like that.

Confession, I am addicted to dog milk
Ever since i was a kid and tried it. I have a farm and always keep at least 2 dogs pregnant so I have access to milk. When the puppies are born, im not cruel and dont kill them or separate them. I share it. But at 4 or 5 weeks when they are able to eat real food and still tiny and cute i put them in the car in the afternoon after school gets out and look for kids walking home or playing and offer them the babies. Most of the time they say yes and some take more than one. Ive had two kids recognize me in the car and ask me for more. I usually try when theres no guardians around to tell them no dont take it, were not keeping a dog. I didnt have any at the time but got their address and next time i did, i split a batch of 7 between the 2 houses in amazon boxes left at the door. One the rare occasion im stuck with some i leave them at a church or at houses with acreage that i know have dogs. I dont overbreed the dogs. After theyve had too many babies/litters i get them spayed and usually keep them though some of the mommas i gave to kids who took their babies. This is my confession. It is not cruel like fuckers who kill puppies or kittens by leaving them on the side of the road, the woods or the dumpster. Ive never dumped a baby in even a shelter.

Frogging edition

Previous Thread >>4685883

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.

The Absolute state of science
Has anyone else noticed this? I was browsing large bird species and saw that it referred to ostriches as "The largest living species of dinosaur" and found pic related from another link.
What the fuck is wrong with these people that they see a bird of literally any kind and start calling it a dinosaur? it's like people who refer to T-rex as "giant chickens" or try to argue hat ALL dinos had feathers. It's so cringe and just reeks of reddit "science" from retards who who just watch yutube essays and don't listen to actual paleontologists who have been arguing against these things forever. i even edited the ostrich article to remove the statement that they are dinosaurs. If anything is a fucking living dinosaur it's a crocodile, not a God damn ratite.

Chunky pet
Hawg vs dawg
I've been pondering on this subject for a few years, and while I'm getting ready to buy a house within the next year, I'm stuck with the dilemma of a pet. Would it be more worthwhile to have a larger dog such as a bulldog or boxer, or a pig such as a kunekune or guinea hog? I know a pig is going to consume much more and weigh around double what a medium sized dog would weigh, but assuming the area allows cattle, swine, etc, whats the benefit of a dog over a pig? $1500 for a boxer vs $150 for a piglet? I'm having a hard time overlooking a pig here

Mr Fresh and the cat houses
Is 4chan aware of the story of Mr fresh? Mr fresh is a stray cat residing in china, he frequents these cat houses that have live streams connected to them where people can donate to feed the cats kibble and treats. While there are many other cats, Mr fresh went kinda viral bc he entices people to donate by side-eyeing them in a really silly manner. He only eats freshly dispensed food bc one time he ate old food with bird poop on it. This would normally be just a wholesome and silly story abt stray cats, SOME GUYS PUT A BOUNTY ON THIS CATS LIFE. They are offering for someone to kill him and show him to the camera. Apparently these are the same people who put a cat in a blender a while back. While he is safe, he’s still a stray bc he’s very hard to approach and defensive so no one has adopted him yet. We can only hope that someone will. Stay safe Mr Fresh.

Just A Bug Thread
Post bugs if ya like bugs.

Just a little update on that terrarium I made for an isopod that was trying to yeet itself into my sink-it's going pretty well.

I added some stuff, got a low level heat bulb for the light system so that the tank isn't freezing ass cold at night while I'm at work, and I got myself a hissing cockroach. He's pretty cool; named him Prince because he acts like a little spoiled princess.

The isopod population basically exploded in the tank and went from about six or seven that i added in myself, to easily over forty now, which is pretty cool. I got some springtails when I picked up the roach, so those are in there as well, and I plan on getting some worms.

It's a fun little ecosystem and it's been keeping me on the straight a bit better. I've been eating healthier because I feed the scraps to the hisser, and i don't want to feed him anything that could hurt him, so fresh foods are in my fridge now. Also been keeping a more consistent schedule because I have to manually turn the lights on for them and give the tank a good misting.

Black-rumped Flameback
Why does it seem girls are not into birdwatching as a hobby?

Girls typically are known for their love of animals but when I go out it is almost universally retired old men who want to look at birds. Sometimes there are a few retired old women too, but I'd say it's 70% men to 30% women, all over 50 at the very least.

Why is birdwatching not a more common hobby among younger people? I can only think of 2 times in 8 years I've seen a kid out, and that was probably because the dad just dragged him along unwillingly.

A question I always had about ants
So, I usually keep some cups and plates in my room yeah? So the ants gather on them, but I don't like killing ants so I always blow them away but some still stay in the cup/plates when I take it to the kitchen/trash.
The question is, will these ants go back to their colony if I throw them far away from the original location; will they go to a new colony (and be accepted); or will they just wander and die?
