pedrop357: Am I the only farking sick of these articles that always have a sentiment like "we could learn a lot from these animals" or something similar?Like it or not, humans are FAR kinder to each other and other animals than any other animals are to members of their own species or members of another. Humans regularly risk their lives to save others they don't know.Animals routinely kill the offspring of other members of their species. Hell, the male members of the feline species, those adorable kitties we love, will eat the young of another in the wild. Not always, but far more often than humans kill another person's baby.Any (carnivorous) animal capable of doing so would have eaten those puppies without a second thought.We have some things to fix in our species to say the least, but the animal kingdom is the last thing we want emulate.
God-is-a-Taco: Snakes often go months between meals
VTGremlin: How did no one notice a King Cobra in the well ...?
Farktastic: There are numerous documented cases of cats eating the deceased. They tend to eat the face off because getting under clothing would take actual work. Dogs, on the other hand tend to wait until they are starving before eating dead people.
Bung_Howdy: The_Original_Roxtar: yeah, tons of people were spamming this around all of the social medias months ago.it was bullshiat then, and it's bullshiat now.THISThe owner of the puppies called for help, but snake experts were far away, so he waited. It took two days for help to come, and during that time, Cobra didn't let puppies to die, nor have attacked them in any wayBad Engrich

Lady Indica: neongoats: Lady Indica: More likely the cobra was lethargic because of being in a dark and cold well. Puppies are warm, the cobra was probably using them as an electric blanket. King Cobras are pretty much apex predators, unless it's a mongoose they don't have much to worry about. And the puppies are a little big for it to eat.It reminds me of my time living in florida. Coral snakes... the baddest, most poisonous shiat in our entire hemisphere, super common, live everywhere there, and the amount of actual bites that happen are very very small. It's like they exude confidence. "Nothing is going to fark with me that I can't kill with a bite, so no need to stress!".Yeah coral snakes aren't really high on the aggressive scale. I think king cobras are, but the cold probably had more to do with it than anything I'd guess. I can tell you from living in California, rattlesnakes are aggressive as shiat if you step near them, but generally they won't chase after anyone. You pretty much have to step on them to get bitten.

doglover: How could a cold blooded animal keep heat sources around?
PirateKing: So they let one of the deadliest, and most valuable exotic animals in the world loose "in the woods" in Serbia. Riiiight.
