Thank you stranger. Shows the award.

When you come across a feel-good thing.





  1. That is what got me. The ears don't look right and it's just too big. I've raised and released bobcats in America and they're just not that big. But I guess this could be a seriously chunky bob?

  2. I could be wrong, but my understanding was that many animals (even within the same species) are generally larger the further north they live. Since this picture was taken in central Canada, is it possible the bobcats there are just overall larger and bulkier than the ones you've dealt with?

  3. Good point. Totally possible. It also just looks different in the face and ears. The distinct curling doesn't usually look so prominent here in bobcats. Usually you can see the black on backs of ears but not that curl, and the face is much wider.

  4. I see what you're saying about the ears. Maybe it's because I live within the range of bobcats but not lynxes so haven't had much first hand encounters with lynxes, but my biggest hangup was that I actually thought this looked too small to be a lynx! The last bobcat I saw was a few months ago, and it was extremely stocky. But as for the markings and ears, I definitely don't think I know enough to identify them based on those. It's definitely an odd one! Lol

  5. Difficult to tell since it isn’t whole but it looks like a sowbug killer.

  6. It's similar, but I actually don't think this is quite right. Sowbug killers have MASSIVE fangs and chelicerae, so they would be unmistakable even with this little of the spider intact. This one practically has little nubs for fangs, much smaller than on any sowbug killer I've ever seen!

  7. It's part of a spider, just not positive which species. Based on your location, the coloration, carapace shape, and shape of the fangs, I personally think it should be narrowed down to either Asagena americana (two spotted cobweb spider), Meriola decepta, or Parasteatoda tepidariorum (common house spider). Since it's difficult to see the eye placement, there's no size, given, and more than half the spider is missing, it might be difficult to narrow it down any further. None of them have medically significant venom, in case you were worried

  8. This is remarkable, since it is generally thought that only humans, orangs, and chimps exhibit mirror self-recognition.

  9. I thought dolphins were also capable of mirror self-recognition. I could be wrong though

  10. All the awful, terrible, disturbing things I've seen on here, and THIS is the thing that makes me want to puke. I respect any and every woman who's had to experience that. I'm now straying even farther away from wanting to have kids.

  11. That's a cottonmouth, highly venomous spider

  12. I don't know about yours, but at least in my building, that would 100% be an inside job. I'd be expecting people to start coming around with questions

  13. Definitely a rabbit. But with the coloration and shorter ears, to me at least it looks like it might be a domestic rabbit, not a wild species.

  14. And they did it with the driver's side door next to the shopping cart return so you can't block them in with another car. Ugh.

  15. I don't know exactly what it is, but to me it looks like either a specific caterpillar or aquatic insect larvae that makes a house for itself and drags it around behind it. That larger section over the body looks unmaneuverable and cumbersome like it's not it's actual body, and then the head is sticking out of the home and is how it walks around

  16. Not awake yet. Lol. There's 8 legs and 2 pedipalps, which are the "tiny legs" by the mouth of spiders

  17. It's a molt, but not from a tarantula. It's some other type of spider though

  18. I'm throwing in another vote for a domestic rabbit. There are domestic rabbits that have the coloration a wild rabbit would, so coloration isn't much of a factor in this case. However, that face and stockiness screams domestic rabbit to me. To me at least, it also looks like it could be heavier than a brush rabbit would be. From what I could find, brush rabbits only get about 2lbs at their heaviest, and that looks heavier to me. And if you were really able to get close enough to almost step on it, that really suggests it isn't that afraid of people.

  19. That looks like it's possibly a large shell with black beads or something similar glued to it

  20. I've rewatched the video just for that more times than I've watched the lady fall

  21. Yea no I understand I was just making him a suggestion that he can smuggle it in

  22. If he was to get caught smuggling it into the country, there's a good chance his beloved pet would be "destroyed", aka killed. And that's not to mention the fines/jail time they could face. Personally, I wouldn't suggest it at all, but if you're going to suggest he do something illegal like smuggle it into the country, at the very least make sure he knows all the risks he's taking.

  23. Do they also 'hoot' like other owls? I definitely have a screecher here, but also someone who does the 'hoo hoo' sound.

  24. I don't think they hoot, but I could be wrong. I've only ever heard them make this sound or a constant trill similar to a cricket but lower. More common "hooters" that I know of are great horned owls, long eared owls, barred owls, and great gray owls. That should be in order of most widespread distribution. There are others that also hoot, but for them it'd probably be better to look up the various species that live in your area since the distribution may be smaller

  25. Gotcha. I suspect this is a feather from the back of one of the sparrows, but I'm struggling to find an exact match. Most of them have feathers that are pale on one side and dark on the other, rather than the dark streak going down the middle of the feather like this.

  26. It was at the parking lot of my work. The lot is bordered by a large open grassy field on one side and denser woods on another. This was closer to the open field side. If it helps, a few days ago there was a small group of dark eyed juncos and some type of sparrows all foraging together near where I found the feather

  27. Gotcha. I think we're looking at something from Spizella here, as it appears they do have this feather pattern on the back (instead of the more typical half and half on Zonotrichia and House Sparrows). At this time of year and in that location, Chipping Sparrow would be the best option.

  28. Awesome! Thank you! Next time I see the sparrows around, I'll see if I can actually get a picture of them or at least ID them visually and compare the feathers online. I'm terrible with sparrow identification, so I can't remember off the top of my head exactly what they look like, other than that they're probably not house sparrows because I never see any with the black faces males have. Lol

  29. I love when the mom is on her phone, totally distracted, and still manages to perfectly catch and save his head. She even looks shocked that she managed it

  30. I ... Honestly dont think there is such thing as being gay in animal world

  31. Lions, cows, penguins, and I think sheep and dolphins are all animals that off the top of my head I'm aware of displaying evidence of some individuals being gay. And I'm pretty sure there's others that I can't remember as well
