>>4804897
NTA but he said history, not prehistory. After agriculture become a common practice, it's been pretty well known that the lower castes (most people) had poorer mainly grain filled diets when compared to our prehistoric hunter gatherer ancestors. This can be seen in how our stature shifted to be shorter (something that's only recently shot back up) and by how much of a religious and historic significance bread or rice or corn has in any society. History has been fueled by grains.

If you can use San Diego as an example get involved with your biggest zoo and try and get them to copy the model to get a pair as conservation ambassadors. My very end goal is to hopefully inspire enough anons to get involved that future generations can actually have a platypus like Texans have big cats. Just less irresponsible and more careful breeding and protecting the genetic stock from ecological disaster responsibly. Captive tigers are being used to prevent the wild population from failing due to inbreeding in some areas of the world.

This is your daily reminder to want a platypus

You people are so disingenuous and insincere its unreal. None of you give a fuck about disabled people. You just want to feel a little better about forcing your disabled dog to live an unnaturally long life because you couldn't bear to let them go. Comparing animals to disabled people is retarded and anthropomorphizing the animals is even more so.

It's simultaneously fulfilling, rewarding and pretty nice.
But pretty depressing.
Puppies and small dogs come and go.
But if they grow taller than someone's knees, they stay there forever.
Nobody wants a big dog.
We cannot take surrenders because there's just so many strays filling the place.
Absolute lack of people coming to help
To even just spend time with some dogs.
We're three people right now with 70 dogs at the shelter.
There's not enough time in the day to both clean and tend to them while spending enough time socializing them.
It's rough out there for the big poochies, anons.

Tokays have a huge range and are reasonably diverse in that range. This isn't to say that it is necessarily a tokay, but it is the right size and shape, and it's possible it's just one of the localities that isn't bright orange and blue or it's cold enough that it's not fired up.
