I love these animals so much
>tfw pigu nests herself in my lap, falls asleep and closes her eyes
I am the chosen one.
How smart are piggos? Could you put them in a large, deep habitat with suitable material and expect them to burrow or tunnel? Are they able to tread or wade water slightly deeper than their own height?

Iā€™d love to make a large pig obstacle course with a tunnel maze and at the finish live have a large stack of visible veges but they have to cross a 75cm long pool of water. Would this be physically possible for them?
How did we get blessed with such sweet animals?
I miss my pigs. Leela and Nibbler lived 8 good years.
Lmao my male and female pigs would do this, as well as their babies so whenever they had a litter we'd have an 8 pig train scurrying through the house.

Sea otters also rape baby seals to death. Male otters will find a juvenile harbor seal and mount it, as if he were mating with a female otter. Unfortunately, part of the mating process involves holding the female's head under water which ultimately kills the seal pups (and over 10% of female otters).

Sorry guys I know I said that I would remind you every day to want a platypus but a work emergency came up and I'm going to be without internet for a month on sight. I'm basically bootlegging a Sat phone right now.

So this will have to be your monthly reminder to want a platypus.

I doubt there'd be any pressures that specific popping up again for a long while. As for your desire to see what a varanid capable of taking down a bear would look like take a moment to look up megalania. After you're done looking at what once was I want you to then take another moment to curse the aboriginal folk for fucking up any possibility for us modern day folk to have rideable monitor lizards to use as war mounts.
A human could 1v1 it.

Well ok a human with some sort of farming tool (like a machete), bear spray, and/or a gun.

None of the people who caused this are alive today.
I don't know anyone who doesn't
This is pretty much exactly why I don't dislike them. They got a shit hand and adapted, like animals do. It's not their fucking fault. I'm curious whether it's a positive or negative for disease/cleanliness though with them cleaning up the streets of food that could rot and shit
Seagulls are far worse. They're like pigeons but cheeky.
neither is it the pigeons' fault that they were born into the world as it is

So what exactly happens to the cells in your body when you build an immunity to a venom or poison? Are they chamged forever?
3 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
You can't get immune to poison. You can only keep from getting initially sick by lessening the initial symptoms. It still harms your body. People who take poison/venom/toxins in order to be immune always have their body fall apart eventually. Even Venom Man has health issues from it. The thing is, your body doesn't want to die, right? Well, in order to keep itself alive it tries to do everything it can to keep the venom from bringing you down quickly where you may become pray to a secondary problem (like a lion eating you because you are sick and slow.) If you live in an area where you get bit by a snake 1-2 times a year, but don't die, your body keeps you up and running so you don't die from something else while you'd normally be sick.
Most people will get sensitized to venom over time making it affect you worse and worse.
your body get's less resistant to a lot of venoms the more it's exposed to them

You make fewer protein gates and receptors that get triggered by venom or block them with signaling proteins and antibodies.
