Post your MOST favorite animals. EPAULETTE SHARKS are GOOD creatures, and AREN'T loved ENOUGH.
deer!!! i always see them in my backyard :3 so it made me grow on them
I love birds and bird watching! the tufted titmouse is so cute and they are very common throughout Eastern US :)
Especially the fat fuzzy ones.
I wish I liked bugs fuck it sucks being so bothered by them
This is a cute animal. You've converted me.
I like butterflies more tbh but I agree. Moths are furry and cute. And there is something ethreal about being attracted to light lije moths are.
Silk moths are definitely my favourite. It kind of makes me sad that they are killed in droves for silk. You could harvest silk without killing the silkworms, but its less efficient.
silk moths have been breed so long for silk production even if you were to harvest silk more humanely they are unable to fly anymore and die a few days after emerging from their cocoon.
Btw, they do harvest silk humanely called "peace silk" but its way more expensive and lower quality (because it can not be unwraveled from one continuous strand once the moth eats its way out), and like I said they are no longer able to fly and die days later anyways.
Waiting on that synthetic spider silk to be widely available.
ćma typu księżycow…
Sad that a lot of moths die quickly. Luna moths for example dont't have a mouth, so they just pretty much starve to death.
Orangutans look like a baby and an elderly person at the same time. They're so cute.
I like monke, there's something funny about how they look kinda human but not really, but at the same time not in the uncanny valley way.
i have always been obsessed with foxes
Orcas! They are highly intelligent apex predators.
>have developed food palette
>hunting traditions are passed down by generations, each pod has its own unique way of hunting
>some orcas know how to induce paralysis in great white sharks by flipping them over, and then they will only eat the liver of the sharks
>have never been documented to hurt a human in the wild
>have been recorded to adopt social fads. There was a time when there were several reports of orcas donning salmon hats
>only species besides humans to evolve based around nature
>each pod has its own dialect
I also prefer orcas over other dolphin species like bottlenose dolphins because I have never seen records of them gang raping like I have seen with bottlenose dolphins, though I am aware they do have a sadistic side like when they enjoy playing with their prey before eating then.
Slowworm are my misunderstood friends. People often mistake them for snakes but they're actually limbless lizards.
I hate seeing them decapitated on a path killed by fucktards who mistake them for snakes. We don't even have venemous snakes here. It makes me soo mad
Killing snakes is not okay either.
Arabesque bandana is so cute on shiba inu! I like it when the whites in the eyes show too, it is very human and funny.
How can you like these?.. They look so uncanny, especially the one you posted
That's rude. I'm sure you look uncanny to them too.
agreed nona, I love watching the orangutan jungle school series, they're absolutely adorable.
this one looks funny, yellow. what kind of monkey is that?
female nomascus (gibbon)
not a monkey btw
All apes are monkeys though.
>Apes (collectively Hominoidea /hɒmɪˈnɔɪdi.ə/) are a clade of Old World simians native to sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia (though they were more widespread in Africa, most of Asia, and Europe in prehistory), which together with its sister group Cercopithecidae form the catarrhine clade, cladistically making them monkeys.
>>253931>which makes them monkeys
did you add that part yourself, nona? because it says apes and cercopithecidae (monkeys) are both simians (not monkeys) at the start of the sentence.
Their eye spots used to scare me
There's a good chance they're smarter than us, but there's not much you can do when you live in water and have no hands.
I have no mouth and I must scream
Snow leopards are goddess' perfect creatures.
Without the ability to record knowledge, we would never have progressed past the stone age. I think about this a lot.
I doubt it. Some civilizations had almost no written language but still managed to build complex architecture, develop agriculture and even form complex social hierarchies. Keep in mind even with written language the average peasant or villager was still illiterate. They learned valuable skills through first-hand experience. By learning from a skilled mentor or experienced family member.
Mari just has very deep eyes, you know, it's like she's staring right into your soul….
Coyotes are my new favourite. You can probably tell I'm not a farmer.
so ugly so ugly so fucking ugly, i love it.
millipedes. i like big and small ones. i know its weird, lots of people think theyre insects but theyre arthropods. they dont crawl fast at all, very slow moving and cute. their legs dont bother me at all. their little antennae wiggle as they move and their roundness just makes me happy. people very often mistake them for centipedes, which DO run around very fast and can be lethally poisonous.
Citheronia Laocoon (Saturniidae). Ironically enough, I have a phobia of insects.
Same, anon! I loooove millipedes. This is coming from someone who used to be scared of even completely harmless, safe and
commonplace animals like earthworms. They just made me uncomfy. But millipedes changed all that weird creepy crawly feeling. I mean, have you anons seen how they reach up the upper half of their bodies while gripping tightly onto the ground (or other surface) with their teeny tiny legs with the lower half? They're so majestic and beautiful. And they're perfect decomposers. They're a gift, I just wish I could find them more often without going hunting specifically for them. Pill millipedes look a bit odd, though, just not sure why.
Video not mine but someone from Tumblr.
i love snails! i think they're adorable and magical littl creatures. i used to own 2 milk snails but they died :c
ayrt, the pill millipedes are a little weird theyre just like large rolly pollies, but some of them can have interesting colors. but yeah millipedes are some of the oldest creatures on the planet which i also think is cool. thanks for sharing the video
