Why is everything so fluffy and pettable but almost no animals in nature actually want humans to pet them? Posted on May 1, 2023 by Anonymous Why is everything so fluffy and pettable but almost no animals in nature actually want humans to pet them?
most animals do want humans to pet them, they just don't know it until it happens. Grooming behaviors are extremely common in animals and so most animals would actually find petting quite enjoyable if they could get over the massive furless weirdo hovering over them while it's happening.
Most animals in nature can be petted and enjoy touch after you gain their trust.
God fucking dammit why did you have to remind me of the spider dicky threads
UOOOHHHH SLING EROTIC
Spiderling abdomen and cephalothorax... erotic
is there... fanart of this yet...?
Every single animals wants to be pet, they just don't know it yet.
Go back to your chud board gay
Don't you ever call an Egyptian god a chud ever again, you filthy garden gnome.
Retarded bait thread
They want humans to pet them, they just don't know it because they're afraid and hungry
anyone who unironically believes in good and evil is a kook. that's your just your lower monke-mind trying to put words to things your instinctive algorithms have decided monke like and monke no like. there is no reward to be had for whatever goodness you've thought up just because it is good and "ought to be done, because if you do this you have to do this to be good".
maybe what monke like is not something monke has to or should like. maybe monke like monke who always act predictably generalized up to the vaguest categories, but what if that monke is not so easy to deal with, what if the best monke to have as a friend make new rules to fit every situation and communicate them as they do? what if pure and consistent ethics big monke mistake?

Why does that trivialize it? Instincts have no credibility? They have carried you from primordial soup to the here and now. They are life lessons paid for in blood by countless ancestors over millions of years, so vital to your being that evolution has etched it into your very DNA. You would be nothing but a senseless blob without that biological legacy to orient you in the world.
>there is no reward to be had
Other than the survival of the species, yeah, totally useless.
Instincts have no credibility when you stop living in the natural environment that created them and they go haywire to the point that you think your own species is evil if it doesn't devolve into an self-depopulating herbivore (inferior lifeform).
Are the fins of a fish useless on land until they become legs? Then your instincts made for a hunter-gatherer plains chimp are useless until you evolve for civilization (become chinese).
You want to know the sad truth? It's because they know what humans represent - they are demons; the servants of their father death. Animals that have never seen humans don't fear humans because they don't know better. When Killdeer encounter a predator, they do a fake broken wing dance to lure the predator away from their nests. When they encounter a herbivore they bitch at it to go away instead. Guess which technique they use on humans?
>BLA BLA BLA DEMONS DEATH! SERVANTS OF SPIRITS OOOOOOOOO
Simpler explanation you pseudo-spiritual herbivore fuck. It's the eyes. Eyes are easy to spot and easy to generalize even for a simple brain. Especially one already well adapted to picking out berries and bugs.
Forward facing eyes = Hunter. Superior lifeform. High trophic level. Efficient lifestyle, lots of leisure time. Sustains itself. Dominant over the ecosystem.
Sideways eyes = Prey. Inferior lifeform. Low trophic level. Little leisure time, mostly eats. Lives at others mercy. A cog in the ecosystem. Their enemies, our competitors and potential allies (high ranking servants).
Round pupils = apex predator, daytime hunter, high off the ground, courageous behavior, very dangerous (humans, lions, wolves, bears).
Slit pupils = mesopredator, nighttime hunter, lazy during sunlit hours, hides in the grass, only seen if they are not trying to kill you. Food, potential to be the lowliest of slaves.
Lol, formatting error!
>Their enemies, our competitors and potential allies (high ranking servants).
This goes up one line, or else we wouldn't be treating horses like meat shields and disposable goods throughout history
>Food, potential to be the lowliest of slaves.
Obviously we don't eat foxes.
It's very simple to understand. There is good and evil and you are evil.
>There is good and evil
Wrong. There is dead self and there is alive self and the things that lead to those states. You are a malfunctioning ape that has accidentally memed its social cohesion instincts so far out of context it's more similar to fetishism than to philosophy.
>Generalizations are sometimes wrong! See, rare animals!
They are right more often than they are wrong, especially for this bird, which does not encounter gorillas. Also note that the only predator the bird does encounter here with sideways eyes has a unique body shape that can be identified another way.
It is lucky for them that humans finally made good use of their optical arrangement and adapted to eating meat, and so the generalization remained true and they were able to properly avoid yet another natural born predator, ensuring that only the strongest survive and the food supply is self-regulating.
>They are right more often than they are wrong
did you actually count tho?
all birds of prey have circular eyes, all prey birds except owls have side facing eyes
all lizards and fish predators have side facing eyes
all bugs exept mantis have no slit pupils, most bug eyes are both side facing and front facing
tasmanian devil, bears, Wolverines, hyeanas, weasles, etc have no slit eyes
did you cont all of that and compared it with your shitty cats example? dont get me started with prey animals who have front facing or slit eyes
you have shit logic if it was true then biologest would classify a predator with your standards
Yes that is a fascinating middle school urban legend level of understanding of ecology. And you're the one ranting about "pseudo-spiritual" explanations?
>gorilla, orangutan, and panda all evolved from omnivorous and even predatory animals
>all on the bottom are reptiles and fish
You're an even bigger pseud than the fag you were replying to holy fuck.
That is why God gave us the power of selective breeding
