This is a thing?
For real, sounds like a good way for someone to get their face ate off.
Also read it as “the adults in the house forget to secure the house before going to bed.”
Yes. Sometimes on a Friday or Sat night maybe I don’t have all my senses about me to remember to double check everything
Seems like the possibility of death by bear would make it a top priority
Damn it I hate nature some times.
I would take that to my taxidermist and have it mounted exactly as I found it. My wife would love it.
Why would you not just like, I don't know...roll over or something.
Birds gotta eat
Meals on whe... hooves.
survival of the fittest theory exists for a reason.... the weak in body or mind go first.
The cries are almost always the hardest part for me.
Oh hey I weigh like 1000 pounds but there's nothing I can do while these 3 small lizards devour my baby.
You are so stupid
The little "tah-dah" pose at the end gets me every time
Komodo dragons have poison in their saliva. The mother wanted to help but going over there was suicide. It was over already.
Is it poison or just very nasty “flesh eating” bacteria in their saliva?
I think the conventional wisdom about the Komodo dragons bite has changed fairly recently. I don’t remember if it changed to/from bacteria to venom or vice versa.
These details I don’t know, but the mother needed to protect what was left anyway. Hearthbraking because I am a pussy but she looked her baby in the eye the whole time and did not let him die alone. This is fascinating to me.
Pretty sure planet earth said it was flesh eating bacteria.
"Based on a thorough analysis of the dragon’s skull, Fry thinks that they kill with a grip, rip and drip tactic. They bite down with serrated teeth and pull back with powerful neck muscles. The result: huge gaping wounds. The venom then quickens the loss of blood and sends the prey into shock."
Yep was gonna post the same
Dynamite drop-in, bud.
I love you anyway, let’s meet up in the movie thread
Guys, I have made a final ruling on this: The mother buffalo was traumatized by what was happening but knew if she intervened there was a good chance she was going down -- whether it be immediate or after the poison set in and ultimately killed her. If she has other babies they all would have died following her death. She made the right call.
She should get the head coaching job for the bengals
I'll bet the other mama buffaloes were like "if some lizard was eating my kid, I'd go put a hoof in their ass."
And then the other mama buffalos get a bite on the leg. They think they are fine but the poison and bacteria starts to set in and they eventually lose their leg. No longer as mobile, they're killed by a predator and then their entire family is subjected to the same fate.
Not if the water buffalo prays enough for the wound to go away.
That's actually not what that phrase means
Ah thank you. That’s what I was referring too. It used to believed that it was bacteria in the saliva...now they know that the Komodo does, in fact, produce venom.
Same. I had to look it up
I'm glad to have that cleared up. I had heard the bacteria theory as well. Also this week, I learned that male giraffes are super gay.
saw a retweet of this article:
let the market decide
I’m still not satisfied with this parenting decision
Interesting factoid: Oliver Reed (Proximo) literally drank himself to death during a break in shooting. They had to CGI him in for the rest. He was a notorious alcoholic and had quit drinking for this role (believe it was a contractual obligation).
“Some said he drank eight pints of lager, a dozen double rums and half a bottle of whiskey in a drinking match against sailors on shore leave from H.M.S. Cumberland. He was 61 years old. Fellow Gladiator actor Omid Djalili said in 2016: "He hadn't had a drink for months before filming started ... Everyone said he went the way he wanted, but that's not true. It was very tragic. He was in an Irish bar and was pressured into a drinking competition. He should have just left, but he didn't."
This thread just went down a sad road. *takes another sip of beer*
