    I think the situation of the Slow Loris makes you feel bad. They look adorable and of course superstition/mysticism puts these animals in danger. They are toxic.

    Makes me remember when i was a kid, i was at the east park nearby my home, which is like Caracas Central Park, kinda. A sloth fell down a tree, he was struggling to make his way back to the trunk slowly and as soon as some people saw it: "lets poke it" not even kids, kids just watched because they were curious, it were their grown ass adult parents poking the poor animal with a stick over and over, tipping it and making fun of it until an employee came along to stop their bullshit.

    That was one of those momments i realized just something being funny looking gives people enough justification to fuck with it, no matter how harmless, least say defenseless it might be, and they will gadly teach it to their godamn kids.

    Yes, these are real.

    /\ That is just the cutest thing

    My boyfriend collected Praying Mantises for a while, I wasn't bothered about them before but handling them made me appreciate their awesomeness. The babies are just so cute, some of them can jump so fast from finger to finger it looks like they're transporting. But the number of people I've talked to about them and they've instantly shuddered and said they'd squash one if it came near them was a bit sad...

    Ha ha! I love the picture with the hand and the little black mantises. They're like little Zerg soldiers running off to invade the Protoss base by the elbow.

    Angel Intheuk: I was like that for some time growing up. The first time I was presented with a mantis about 6 years of age I just freaked out.
    Perhaps it was pertinent documentaries that now and then aired and reading on the animals that conquered most of the fear. Praying mantises proper still get me a bit jumpy when handling them but I love Empusa nymphs.

    Now for some salticid spider cute:
    Yes, these are real.
    Yes, these are real.

    bish0p2004: they do eat carrion, y'know, and on occasion chow down on a hapless rodent. The panda felt a bit peckish and just wanted to have a taste In all seriousness, I can't understand why people get closer than they should be with animals that are strong enough to injure them seriously.

    Yes, these are real.

    Jerboas just went from being tiny jumping furballs to gun-wielding robots of doom in my head.

    On another note, I just stumbled across these guys today. Giant Isopods. Sometimes called Giant Marine Woodlice.

    Ya gotta love deep sea creatures.

    Great VK...some new creature I wish was big enough to ride. And then I could lead all the Fremen tribes to glory. Obviously I should have had a pony as a kid.
