(INDIGNANT HUFFING) NOT ALL M……ale lions

the more i think about it, the weirder this comment seems. how does this man know that being a male lion is more stressful than being a female lion. has he lived as both a female and male lion before. is this man an Animorph

I

male lions rights activist

as a big cat fanatic and a zoo veteran: 
male lions are lazy fucks. they CHOOSE to fight cos they’re BORED.

As a professional Ethologist who specializes in apex predator and primate behavior, I can fully support this lazy lion notion.See this gorgeous guy? 
This is Zero, the most photographed lion in National Geographic history (so I’ve been told). While his huge frame and two-toned mane make him an intimidating sight, he is essentially the biggest baby I observed while in South Africa.
You would hear these deep roaring moans echo across the reserve… and it was Zero, whining for the girls (Maggie and Lisa) to bring him food. The lazy bum would just roll around in the river bed moaning and groaning until the females would show up with a kill. 
Sure, he could fight if there happened to be a rival male in the area. And his ‘mock charge’ display was intimidating enough to keep just about everyone* out of his way… but 99% of the time this guy was all about moaning (for food), mating, and mane-flips.
* - The only animal not run off by Zero’s display was a honey badger, who - true to form - did not care.

That is one ridiculously photogenic lion.

That last bit about the honey badger just make me think of this beefed up Gryffindor jock showing off and being all intimidating but this weedy little Hufflepuff is just not. Impressed. At all and am I writing fanfiction about african wildlife?

Hey, that gif of the piglet running through the grass is a teacup pig. Teacup pigs are actually normal pigs or potbelly pigs but the sows are bred very young and then kept malnourished through their pregnancy so the piglets are underdeveloped. Then the piglets' access to their mom's milk is restricted so they stay small. The whole process is extremely cruel and I'd appreciate it if you'd not spread gifs of teacup pigs and other 'teacup' animals.

thefrogman:

I did some research. The owner says it is just a small potbelly piglet and not a mini or teacup pig. They rescued it and seem to be taking very good care of it. Making efforts to get its weight up and being vigilant about its overall health. 

That said, I do know that this is a problem and people see tiny cute things on the internet and want to get one of their own. Before getting any animal, I think it is important to put in due diligence to research animal breeders and make sure they are certified and have a reputation for bringing up animals in a safe and healthy manner. Rescuing and adopting is also a great thing to look into. 

Sometimes animals are just small and I think it is okay to admire their cuteness if that is the case. I admire your courage in bringing this up, but it is also prudent to research things like this before making accusations.

I’ve been accused of certain things with Otis, and they were never true, but it still really hurts like the dickens when people accuse you of that sort of thing.

I have been a cat owner my whole life and I literally never knew that tiger lilies and stargazers were also highly toxic to cats.  Even drinking the water from the vase that lilies are in can kill the cat!  I brought in a tiger lily from our yard today and just thought to look it up and found out (and of course removed the lily from our house as soon as I saw).  How scary!

Other toxic flowers for cats:
Amaryllis (Amaryllis sp.)
Autumn Crocus (Colchicum autumnale)
Azaleas and Rhododendrons (Rhododendron sp.)
Castor Bean (Ricinus communis)
Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum sp.)
Cyclamen (Cyclamen sp.)
English Ivy (Hedera helix)
Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe sp.)
Lilies (Lilium sp.)
Marijuana (Cannabis sativa)
Oleander (Nerium oleander)
Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum sp.)
Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)
Sago Palm (Cycas revoluta)
Spanish thyme (Coleus ampoinicus)
Tulip and Narcissus bulbs (Tulipa and Narcissus sp.)
Yew (Taxus sp.)

Important info for cat friends!!!
