YSK that domesticated cats are the top 100 most invasive species in the world and should be kept indoors as to avoid the potential eradication of other species

Keeping a cat indoors is the safest option for for the cat and as long as the cat is provided plenty of tools to exercise their instincts, they are perfectly happy. Besides the benefits of a cat being kept indoors in terms of safety and avoiding illnesses such as FIV, cats are not natural predators in many areas and have single handedly been the cause of endangerment and even extinctions of hundreds of species of birds and other small animals. Please keep your cats indoors and lets not do the environment more harm than we have already done.

[Adoptables/Closed Species] The Furry that sold for $20.5k

Before I even start - I AM NOT IN ANY WAY ATTEMPTING TO BELITTLE OR SIDE WITH ANYONE IN THIS SITUATION. I am an outsider to this drama and the Grem2 community/species, and I hold a great deal of respect for all the parties described. I am completely neutral. The purpose of this post is only to catalogue some interesting and entertaining drama.

Please DO NOT harass anyone involved.


##An Introduction to Adoptables

Some of you may be familiar with the adoptable community. Some of you may not.

In short, it's a relatively large community spread over sites like Deviantart, Twitter, and Instagram that sell furry and humanoid designs for (primarily) real life money and art. Most people draw art of the characters they buy, as well as make stories about them, roleplay with them, and more, like unique digital toys. Just like how you might like a figurine by a certain company, people like to buy character designs by certain artists. Some people also like to trade the designs they b

Every humanoid species in the MCU are actually just abducted humans from earth.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe we see several alien species that are pretty much just humans we different skin colors, we see blue people, green, yellow and pink. My theory is that those aliens are just humans that have being abducted by other aliens since ancient times.

But why are they colorful? Well do you know why there are black people and white people in our planet? Because of the sun, hundreds of thousands of years ago every Homo Sapiens had a dark skin because we all lived in Africa and it was essential to protect us against the sun, when humans migrated North to Europe and Asia where the sun is not as strong, natural selection selected lighter skins because it facilitates absorption of vitamin D. So I think the same process happened to the humans that were brought to other solar systems, so they developed new skin colors to filter different types of radiation from different stars.

My evidence for it is that John C. Riley character in Guardians of The Galaxy, in the end of

I'm Carole Turek, a 70-year old photographer, and my quest is to photograph every hummingbird species on the planet! So far I have photographed 150 of 350+ species. In February 2020 I climbed 18 miles up a mountain in northern Colombia to photograph one of the rarest hummingbirds in the world. AMA!

My name is Carole Turek and I have been consistently feeding hummingbirds for 25 years. My home in Studio City, California now attracts hundreds of them daily. There are so many hummingbirds here now that I decided to share them with the world on a live cam.

I began photographing my birds and my passion for photography grew to where I had to find more species of hummingbirds to photograph. I started with trips to Arizona, but to find more and more beautiful hummingbirds to photograph, I had to start traveling to Central and South America.

My last trip before all travel came to a halt was to northern Colombia to photograph the Blue-bearded Helmetcrest, one of the rarest hummingbirds in the world. To reach this critically-endangered hummingbird one must seek permission from the indigenous tribes and then trek up to an elevation of 10,000 feet to arrive at the last remaining territory of this hummingbird. The bird is so rare that it was thought to be extinct until five years ag

Crows are all over the world, but where are crows naturally from and what kind of effect did they have as an invasive species?

A short time ago I saw an eagle flying around and I was in awe of it's beauty because it's such a rare sight here, but then a murder of crows started chasing after him and eventually wore him out and got him.

Then I started to wonder how eagles even exist if 6 crowd can so easily take one down, and there are so many crows around.

I think I heard once that ravens are originally from Northern America and that they've been spiritual animals for some Native American cultures, but I could be wrong about that.

So could it be that crows have only been in Europe and Asia for a couple hundreds of years? If so, how devastating was their arrival to the local bird population and other animals?

Much still remains to be learned of this species. What is going on its mind? Does it have dreams and aspirations like we do? v.redd.it/bh1rfoc4y4e51

Caught by surprise to see an Agender Character dropped into Edgewatch! It's rare to see characters identify as agender in media period, let alone one that's chosen to do so on their own rather than because of their species (agender machine, agender angel, agender aliens, etc). Nice one, Paizo!!

[Link] Study shows that dogs disobey their owners during adolescence. This is the first evidence of teenager relationship dynamics existing not only within species but between them.

Puberty is the final developmental stage of reproduction and in mammals causes large changes in hormones and to the brain. As anyone with a teenager will tell you, adolescents often display increased risk taking, irritability and conflict, behaviours which are less often associated with childhood.

While teaching your dog to β€œsit” is one of the first lessons at puppy school, relatively little is known about the period when dogs enter their own β€˜teenage years’. To that end, a study funded by Guide Dogs UK recently investigated the effect of puberty on dog’s attachment to humans and their ability to obey commands.

Owners were instructed to ask their dogs to β€œsit” at 5 months old (pre- adolescence) and at 8 months old (during adolescence). The commands were also given by someone the dogs had never met before.

Surprisingly, dogs were found to be more responsive when the stranger asked them to sit compared to when the owner gave the command. What’s more, dogs that were found to be stresse

How do almost extinct species revive without the damaging effects of inbreeding?

I've heard a few stories about how some species have been brought back to vibrancy despite the population of the species being very low, sometimes down to the double digits. If the number of remaining animals in a species decreases to these dramatically low numbers, how do scientists prevent the very small remaining gene pool from being damaged by inbreeding when revitalizing the population?

Race vs Species

So I understand this could be controversial, but I'm just curious to see what the community thinks about the use of the word 'race' to describe various groups of sentient beings in our worlds. From both a biological/genetic perspective and modern cultural perspective (at least in the west), the use of the term race is pretty faulty. Add to that the way that we as worldbuilders use it to describe different groups of beings with remarkable levels of anatomical, physiological psychological and genetic differences, it seems like a better fit would be the term 'species'. In the case of say, several groups of humans or near human analogues that are actually genetically extremely similar, perhaps the term 'ethnic group' could be a better term to use.

I'm not sure though, I'm no expert. Just as a geneticist, the term kinda makes me uncomfortable due to the history it has had when intertwined with things like eugenics, but also with the modern world and how there has been a concerted effort t
