The Lykoi, also called the Werewolf cat, is a natural mutation (occurred over the last 20 years) from a domestic short-haired cat that has the appearance of a classic Hollywood werewolf, hence its name

Stop being a monster and pet that monster

Wow man . First look thought they might be an exotic tropical raccoon or squirrel. How rare are these mutation ?

This cat looks like a rat.

I’ll need at least 50 to maintain my swamp witch aesthetic. Can’t wait to curl up in bed with my brood!

Capybaras are the largest extant rodents. They live together in groups, and have been known to communally suckle the babies.

And they absolutely love being pet! There‘s this blind capybara in my local rescue center and he always lie on the edge of his enclosure so people would rub rim. He has really coarse hair but his reaction to pets is worth the itchy hand. Such a sweetheart.

That's actually a problem we have in Brazil with the wild ones, because they carry a bunch of diseases, and since they're so docile the city doesn't really control their populations. That leads to unadvised kids petting them and getting sick, or attacked because in groups, sometimes they do protect themselves. Some places (like the Pampulha lagoon, in Belo Horizonte) show signs asking people not to pet them under any circumstance. After all, they are wild animals.

I once paid $5.00 at the West Texas Fair and Rodeo to see one of these. They advertised it as the worlds largest rat 😂

Capybaras also apparently love hot baths

Badgers are fastidious animals. They dig a latrine seperate from their barrows, and have been known to hunt cooperatively with coyotes.

What cute humbug bears

Badgers are the emblem of hufflepuff. They have also been known to consume both mushrooms, and snakes.

And suddenly that meme makes sense.

A remarkable habit of the Asian house shrew is that it forms a ”caravan” with its young, that is, the young line up behind the mother and follow it while she walks

I love how it's all nicely organised and then the last one is just flailing all over the place.

The caboose shrew acts as a flail in times of untold danger and uncertainty.

That is adorable, but I have to admit if I saw that scurry past I would be startled; my first reaction being that it's some kind of snake or big hairy centipede.

Ostriches are the only bird that separately urinates and deficate, and they also have the longest tarsus. Ostriches are a very unique species.

Basically it's the heel area. The part that's not your toe bones that's connected to the leg bone.

But how do you teach them ballet?

Despite their cute appearance, slow lorises (of the genus Nycticebus) are accepted as the only known venomous primate

TIL the platypus is not the only venomous mammal

Their adorable appearance has sadly led them to be seriously threatened by wildlife trade. Their front teeth are usually forcibly removed which often leads to infections and their nocturnal nature makes them being constantly under stress in human environment. On top of that up to 90% of captured loris die during transit.

I may be wrong, but I took a biology course last year and I believe shrews are venomous as well!

False. My wife is also a venomous primate.

Bush Babies jump 6-9 times efficiently than frogs. They can jump horizontally up to 2.25m (7ft 5 in) in one jump.

I thought I was going to see it jump

I came for the jump but stayed for the scritchy-scratches

I don't like seeing them as pets. The light hurts their eyes. Would rather simply watch Planet Earth.

The aardvark, alphabetically the first animal, plays an important role in preventing wildlife deaths from fire. They dig large underground burrows that wildlife can hide in during fires.

Also if you put your finger in an aardvarks mouth they will suck on it

Edit: I don’t have a dick so I can’t put my dick in there

Another fact is that they have cute snozzers.

They share ancestry with Elephants and Manatees, as they're all part of the clade known as Afrotheria

I lost my virginity to a twin-sized mattress when I was 11.

The capture and mutilation of these animals is about as bad as the exotic pet trade gets, you really don't

Hey /u/Mass1m01973,

Your title, fact n' everything are fine, however the subject of the GIF is essentially a victim of animal abuse - almost every single slow loris in the pet trade is harvested from the wild, mutilated, often smuggled and generally kept in poor conditions - and it's the perpetuation of cute internet videos and images like this that helps fuel demand and trade (more info). Think we can all agree we should stop sharing these sorts of things; I'm removing your post for this reason.

Feel free to repost with a different image / video though!

Cheers,

T&B

Slow loris

Slow lorises are a group of several species of nocturnal strepsirrhine primates that make up the genus Nycticebus. Found in Southeast Asia and bordering areas, they range from Bangladesh and Northeast India in the west to the Sulu Archipelago in the Philippines in the east, and from Yunnan province in China in the north to the island of Java in the south. Although many previous classifications recognized as few as a single all-inclusive species, there are now at least eight that are considered valid: the Sunda slow loris (N. coucang), Bengal slow loris (N. bengalensis), pygmy slow loris (N. pygmaeus), Javan slow loris (N. javanicus), Philippine slow loris (N. menagensis), Bangka slow loris (N. bancanus), Bornean slow loris (N. borneanus), and Kayan River slow loris (N. kayan). The group's closest relatives are the slender lorises of southern India and Sri Lanka.
