nope nope nope
Is that dude a little person?
Yeah that should stop it from chewing your face off
That was my second thought...
1) That's either a massive cat
2) That's a mini person
Ligers grow to be bigger than either Lions or Tigers for some reason.
good follow if you like big cats
I dont think we fully appreciate how lucky we are that these beasts aren't native to America
We’d have killed them all bc we are a trash species
I'll take "shitting my pants" for 800 Alex.
I understand the potential cost barrier and efficiency loss - but I would think if you’re aware of a wild tiger presence that bike and motorcycle options are thrown out the window.
Lions live in prides led by several adult males. The lionesses mate with each of those males. Each male wants his offspring to be the ones to survive, but the female's genes want multiple offspring to survive. The father's genes promote size of the offspring to ensure that his offspring out-compete any other offspring in the womb at the same time. Genes from the female inhibit growth to ensure that as many offspring as possible survive and that they all have an equal chance. By contrast, tigers are largely solitary and a female on heat normally only mates with one male. There is no competition for space in the womb so the male tiger's genes do not need to promote larger offspring. There is therefore no need for the female to compensate, so the offspring's growth goes uninhibited.
When a male lion mates with a tigress, his genes promote large offspring because lions are adapted to a competitive breeding strategy. The tigress does not inhibit the growth because she is adapted to a non-competitive strategy. Therefore the offspring (liger) grows larger and stronger than either parent because the effects do not cancel each other out. Ligers take several years to reach full adult size, but it is a myth that ligers never stop growing.
When a male tiger mates with a lioness, his genes are not promoting large growth of the offspring because he is adapted to a non-competitive breeding strategy. However, the lioness is adapted to a competitive strategy and her genes inhibit the growth of the offspring. This uneven match means that the offspring (tigons) are often smaller and less robust than either parent.
Crossed him off the screen.
animal reunions are always awesome.
Sometimes I forget which thread I'm in. I was thinking I was in the Nature is Scary thread and have to admit I was waiting for one of the lions to grab her and drag her away. Glad they didn't. ok 99% glad they didn't.
It’s nice to see but I would not be comfortable at all in this situation even if I raised them. If one of them is having a bad day, your life is over.
it's the pitbull argument. They might be the nicest dogs in the world 99.99% of the time. But in the case of that .01%, when they are having a bad day or something is just a little off, they are equipped to do serious damage.
But yea, it's nice to see this happy reunion!
That doesn't seem like a safe way to enclose apex predators.
this is awesome.
That hyena is a major dick.
Damn. How the warthog look like he was done til the hyena popped in
Stupid hyena. Fucked it up for both of them
It must be a great feeling but hell no
Awesome but only chance would be following the pride for a bit and only doing this after they have made a kill and are all good and fed.
The white one sitting beside him at 0:49
All I get on my cam is a fox every now and then and deer
that’s so cool
I can't imagine coming across this thing in the woods. I'd probably curl up in the fetal position, piss myself, and hope for the best.
You wouldn't come across it unless it was already eating your face.
That is one enormous cougar. And Im not talking about EdmondDantes mom
That is a big fucking cat.
His back musculature reminds me of me when I get on the wide grip lat pulldown
Beautiful animal. Would also be absolutely frozen in "oh fuck"-edness.
He is an awesome follow on instagram. He has a shit load of videos like this, and of them feeding on animals. Really incredible.
This is fucking wild
100 percent chance of me watching that.
Netflix really brought the big bats out for the quarantine. Can't wait to watch.
Firing this up now. Thanks Joe Withabee
