    Fun fact: not only the tiger pattern is a good camouflage, but it's prey can't distinguish orange and green, so tigers, as a matter of fact, look green to those animals, which is awesome in dense foliage.

    It’s true that petting a tiger is an amazing feeling and experience. When I was 10, for a gift my mum and I paid for an experience at our local zoo to feed the lions during their feeding time, after we fed them in their behind the scenes enclosures one of the tigers was pacing near a fence that lead to the tiger enclosure and the keeper with us (who also worked with the tiger) asked us if we wanted to pet its back/side. The keeper was near its face while my mum and I got to pet it for about 5 minutes. We have photos of it and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and one I don’t think I will ever really have the chance to do again

    11:06 As a horse lover myself, I know you should never get too close to a horse's rear end. If you have to walk behind a horse while you're grooming it, make some type of sound ie. talking or singing to let the animal know that you are there. Also, the bigger the horse, the more severe the injuries can be when they kick you. BTW I think the breed of horse in that clip is either a Quarter Horse, a SaddleBred, or a Thoroughbred

    • Aremeriel

      There are more than one horse breed in that clip, but I guess you're referring to the "kicker". That's not the croup and hip of a Quarter or Thorouhgbred, my guess would be on a Morgan, but might be a saddlebred.

    I have to contradict Forrest here on the statement 'you couldn't command a horse to kick'. Because you can. It's called capriole and is a so-called air above the ground as taught and ridden in high levels of classical dressage. It wouldn't look like what the horse in John Wick is doing but that movement can also be trained.

    • Cecelia M
      Cecelia M 7 ай бұрын +7

      I think he meant you can't just command a random horse to kick successfully, like John Wick is doing. Clearly the movie horse has actually been trained to kick on command, but you can't just walk into a stable of horses you don't know and point it's butt at someone and have it kick on command. I mean, unless those are his horses and he's specifically trained them to do this.

      There is evidence of predation AND impact with evidence of carrying (claw marks showing drag scratches like what is see. On typical Eagle kills on smaller animals).

    So as a long time horse trainer, I'll say that slap on the back probably would not make the horse kick, but more likely make it run forward. I thought the far more accurate situation was when he had the hand on the horse's flank. A ticklish horse, with a hand on the flank, could absolutely be coaxed into kicking with a squeeze at the right time like that. Maybe he just got lucky with a ticklish horse. However, that first shot with the slap was pretty unbelievable.

    I studied animal sciences in college, and then went onto a degree. Spent a lot of time working with various animals, including working on an active farm, with all the animals you'd expect, including horses. I love horses.
    One time we were grooming the horses, scraping out their hooves, and a girl on the course walked around the back of the horse and it kicked out, kicked her in the chest, right over the lower couple of ribs. It broke the ribs but luckily didn't puncture a lung. She still has a crescent scar to this day. Another friend of mine was riding her horse and it slipped over. As it was trying to get back up it stood on her thigh, that thigh is still numb even years later.

      @Jax Nah, talked to a literal trained doctor and he's said that nerve damage is something almost to the point now, with technology becoming better and more accessible to help doctors and therapists, it is becoming easier to fix these human issues.
      She should look into this newly developed thing, in which we have a sensor that can be implanted anywhere in the body -- for example, under the tip of a severed finger or that thigh that got crushed. The sensor connects to another nerve that functions properly and restores tactile sensation to the injured nerve. Pretty cool huh?

    The Haast Eagle he is talking about in the beginning was the biggest bird by weight, but not necessarily by wingspan.
    He got the size a bit wrong. Although they had a weight of 10-15 kg (22-33lb) for the females and 9-12 kg (20-26lb) for the males, they only had a wingspan of 8-10ft similar to the biggest living eagles now

    "Mom! Mom! We found a bat!" The kids, playing with super-soakers, accidentally knocked down a bat roosting under our deck. I grabbed a box and came out and covered the poor little bat. I then questioned all the children and determined that none of the children had touched the bat - these were 10 to 12 year olds and relatively truthful. I sent them off to go fill their super-soakers at a different hose tap. I opened one end of the box and had everyone step back to let the bat fly out when it was ready. Only then did it occur to me to called all the parents of the children who weren't mine and to tell them about the bat encounter and also to ask them to talk to their children to ensure that none of the children had touched the bat. If any of them had told me that they had touched the bat, the bat would have had to go off to the county animal control to be tested for rabies and there is no way to do that without killing the bat. After the bat was released, any child who admitted to touching it would have had to have gone for rabies shots.

    Most kinds of bats can actually bite humans and might do so if they are handled wrongly. Never touch them with your hands. Our bat specialist got himself vaccinated against rabies, because he handles injured bats regularly and has been bitten before.
    If you need to get them out of curtains, use a towel to gently shove them into a box, place the box outside somewhere up high and cat-save and let them fly away.
    Nonetheless, they are in fact fascinating animals and if you ever have the change to hear them with a bat detector, do so!

    As respect to the crows and ravens, there is one time and only once did I see them gather like they did in the movie. There was about 50-80 crows all sitting on my house and the neighbor's house and the electrical lines, all very close. My mom and the rest of us just looking through the window because this, as he said, is not normal. All of a sudden, a hawk flew out of the palm tree (we've seen it a few times in the previous weeks) where we knew there was a crow's nest, it must have been eating the babies.
    When the hawk left the tree, all 50-80 birds took off and swarmed it, trying to peck at it mid air. I will never forget that. the hawk didn't come back for awhile either.
