Moths are cuter than butterflies

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.

Anonymous 228841

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.

Anonymous 228842

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.

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.

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.

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.

Anonymous 253964

>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.

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.

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.

Anonymous 258474


Citheronia Laocoon (Saturniidae). Ironically enough, I have a phobia of insects.

Anonymous 258488


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.

Recently I'm very fascinated with orcas. I find them so beautiful and mysterious. Hopefully one day we can communicate with them. And stop holding them captive like circus monkeys for people's entertainment.

>have never been documented to hurt a human in the wild

It's amazing they haven't grown more hostile or wary towards humans considering they must know en-masse about the horrible things humans have done to them at this point. Someone argued that friendly animals have statistically been less killed by humans so it could be they're just putting up a friendly act. But it appears they often tend to be genuinely friendly towards humans. It makes me even more curious what they know and how they feel about us.

What horrible things have people done to wild orcas? Like obviously captive orcas are psychologically tortured, but they'd have no way of knowing about that.
