Sting ray using body to trap and devour fish

Sucks

Imagine being this fish. Being sucked in by a giant slimy monster while being pressed against a clear forcefield while another giant hairy monster films you.

Not the way I want to go

Accctuallyyyy a goldfish's memory isn't that bad. The short term memory is just a myth

Orca uses a fish to hunt birds

Orcas be crazy. That was very fishy.

My first thought was “whale I’ll be.”

Sawfish

Sawfish

Where did you saw it?

*Sea

Used for feeding, but also doubles as a sensory organ, which helps detect food in murky waters like in the post. It triples as predator deterrence. The saw also doubles its options for food. It has a downwards facing mouth with blunt teeth, which are great for eating shelled invertebrates like crabs or clams, but horrible for eating free swimming fish or squid. The saw allows it to not only catch fish/squid, but also break it into smaller pieces for easier eating, which its mouth is incapable of doing.

Great pic. I never understood how this contraption helps them feeding.

Saw this on the side walk today

Rat snakes don't give a fuck about anything

That's a copperhead racer (radiated rat snake), well known for excessive threat displays.

Nope rope on a slip slope tryna bit folk

For some reason the pattern the rat snake has on the front looks like a stock car on a racetrack with a formula car next to it.

I think "radiated" might refer to circular (radial) patterns, but I'm not sure.

Moose struck by lightning

As if the ordinary moose wasn't intimidating enough

A moose that defied zeus.

Moose-like strength

Dolphins deliberately get high on puffer fish nerve toxins by chewing them and passing them around. Puff puff pass XD

Is the desire to seek an altered state common in mammals? I know cats, koalas, and humans do this.

You gotta feel bad for how Giraffes misunderstood the imperative to get high and took it in another direction, though. It’s similar to how priests misinterpreted the words “celebrate” and “celibate.”

Every animal knows life fucking sucks

Monkeys, apes and elephants will let fruit ferment to get drunk.

So has anyone here tried puffer fish toxin?

How good of a high is it?

Look’s like one if those tree entrances in Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, only this one leads to hell.

"Fuck this tree, in particular!"
