    Weird animal in my area!! Can't tell what this is?

  • Differences between farm animals and other animals?

    Best answer: Farm animals tend to be much calmer and sociable likely largely due to hormones but something in their breeding. Domestication typically makes them more friendly. Domestic animals often have more inbreeding or less genetic diversity. It would always tend to be more inbreeding as they become domesticated... show more
    Best answer: Farm animals tend to be much calmer and sociable likely largely due to hormones but something in their breeding. Domestication typically makes them more friendly.

    Domestic animals often have more inbreeding or less genetic diversity.
    It would always tend to be more inbreeding as they become domesticated animals but genetic diversity is hugely variable. We and cheetahs are very compressed genetically compared to most other animals. We are like 200,000 years where the chimp range of difference in the mitochondria is a couple of million years to shared common ancestors.
    I was trying to think of something else when I wrote that but drawing a blank.

    * Farm animals are not predators
    this doesn't really work. Some non farm animals, most, aren't predators either. Maybe rephrased to something like: Non domesticated animals need to gather their own food.

    * Farm animals have economic value to their owner
    That is almost always true but animals in the forest are often of benefit to farmers as food.
    .
    * The habitat of farm animals can be re-created with little or no effort
    Good point but not exactly a difference between the animals. Maybe vaguely a difference.

    * Farm animals are of moderate size
    I don't think that really works but I think it is true that non domesticated animals have a much greater range of size. We tend to like many animals in convenient cooking sizes. Even pigs which would have grown large usually get eaten when they are much smaller.

    * The diet of farm animals is generally vegetarian
    That isn't quite true. Cattle for example are regularly fed feed with animal protein in it which is some kind of processed meat. Meat products get fed to quite a few animals.

  • Which one do you think more painful? Bees or Wasps?

    Best answer: Wasps. They are more aggressive and have no barb on their sting, so they can perforate you many times. A bees tend to sting only iPads a last resort. The sting is barbed and in stinging you it will itself die.

    I found 3 kittens down over the hill by our barn last summer one didn't survive. We live way out in the woods. My brothers were trying to go find its body they like dead stuff for some reason.

    I found 3 kittens down over the hill by our barn last summer one didn't survive. We live way out in the woods. My brothers were trying to go find its body they like dead stuff for some reason. It was August when we found them. They were only 8 weeks old I doubt if his body would still be there we got neighbors dogs , coyotes and foxes running around. Plus there's an old horse trailer and an old car sitting down there they were hiding under. He could have gotten under one of them or went into the weeds or deeper in the woods and died. His brother and sister left him down there to die. They weren't nice to him or her I never actually found out what it was I just called it a him I feel wrong calling an animal and it if I don't know the gender. But anyway how long do you think it took him to decompose if he didn't survive ? Would any parts of his body still be there ?

  • If a bat were to bite you would you have a visible scar months later?

    I am a hypochondriac and fear rabies. I was sleeping with the window open October 5th.

    I am a hypochondriac and fear rabies. I was sleeping with the window open October 5th. I had a blanket over myself and was tucked in at the feet and shoulders I slept kind of lightly for a few hours and fear a bat could have came in, bit me, then flew back out. I fear rabies and the window is flush with the ground outside. The blanket could have been not tucked in around me. I move a lot in my sleep. I am just wondering if a bat could have came and bit me and left. I know they go into hibernation around that time. My ankle is tingling where there are suspicious marks. That is why I am asking if they could bite me in those circumstances and leave the room again via the window. There apperantly are not many bats in our area, but I dissagree because a local school had 1000s of them and had to get them removed, so they are around. Please be kind with your awnsers.

    Consider, Orca is not a true whale, they are more closely related to dolphin.

As Species 360 (formerly International Species Information System) no longer make its database publicly available it is not possible to check which zoos hold S. harrisii.
