 This is a common misconception because they're such similar
 environments, but you should be aware that dads are native to
 Home Depot, while lesbians are actually native to Lowe's. At this
 point, however, both dads and lesbians have made themselves at
 home in both Home Depot and Lowe's to the point that trying to
 separate them back into their original ranges would probably do
 more harm than good to the delicate ecosystem of large chain
 hardware stores.

 BABIES!!
 so the best thing about this is that bobcats, like just about every feline
 besides lions and domestic cats, are pretty solitary. they don't really have
 friends, they aren't really equipped to make friends
 domestic cats, on the other hand, do know how to make friends. they
 are friendly to the point that lots of feral cats live in colonies-the
 females hang out together, even raise kids together, and the males like
 to spend nonsexual time with their baby mommas. they groom each
 other, play around, and have a particular tail position to signal to one
 another- straight up with the tip curled- that they're friendly and
 happy to see cach other. cats learned how to be chill with each other in
 order to take full advantage of human food sources: an ancient granary
 supplies enough rats for a lot of cats, as does a modern lady with a big
 bag of frisky bits, so it would be a waste of time energy for any one cat
 to try and stake the entire foodsource out for exclusive use. less fighting
 means more eating and resting which means a longer, nicer life and a
 lot more kittens.
 so this stray cat, she obviously has no colony if she's wandering around
 and sneaking into zoo enclosures, so she's like hey! there's food here!
 what up, other cat, let's be friends, let's be friends and share that food
 and the bobcat is like ??222because actually wild cats are pretty
 cautious about initiating hostilities and anything new and aggressive
 makes them very worried. and the domestic cat is like 'haha cool, ok,
 we're friends now, big guy. no problems and the bobcat is like?m
 well...? ok? and then they are friends.
 the super interesting thing about most wild cat species is they don't really
 have the capacity to make friends on their own, especially outside of
 sibling bonds, but, if someone comes along and does all the friend-
 making themselves, theyll totally roll with it. zoo cats can get really
 attached to their caregivers- or, in this case, a very confident little

bobcats: Fun animal facts I have learned being a zoo cdocent lavendersucculents fuckyeahshezza madlori 1. There are several ways to classify the large cats, one of the more useful ones is into the roaring cats (tigers, lions) and the purring cats (bobcats lynxes). The puma (also known as the mountain lion) is the largest cat that purrs. I've heard it up close, it's amazing. A cheetah's purr sounds like an idling motorcycle engine 2. Kangaroos cannot move their legs independently of each other, they have to move them in sync - when they're on land. When they're swimming, they can move them separately. Hopping is their most efficient way to move - a walking kangaroo is awkward as hell. They swing both legs forward using their tail as a third leg to prop up while their legs swing 3. People often think that flamingoes' knees bend the wrong way. They don't the joint you're seeing in the middle of their leg isn't their knee, it's their ankle. Their knee is up by their body, and it bends the same way ours does 4. Giraffes only sleep 1-2 hours a day 5. Bald eagles' vocalizations are not what you expect. When you see a flying bald eagle in the movies and hear that majestic caw sound? That isn't an eagle, it's been dubbed over with another bird, usually a red-tailed hawk. Bald eagles actually sound...not majestic. Kind of like if a kitten could be a bird 6. Elephants are one of only a handful of animals that can pass the mirror test - in other words, they can recognize their own reflection (and not think t's another animal, as dogs and cats usually do). They tested this by placing a chalk mark on an elephant's forehead and then showing it a mirror. The elephant investigated the mark on its own forehead, indicating it knew that it was looking at itself. The only animals that pass this test are the higher primates, the higher cetaceans (orcas, dolphines), elephants, and weirdly magpies 7. One-fifth of all the known mammal species are bats 8. A kangaroo mother can have three joeys simultaneously at different stages of development: an embryo in her womb (kangaroos can do what's called embryonic diapause which means sort of putting the development on pause until she's ready for it to develop further), a joey in her pouch attached to one nipple, and a joey out of the pouch on the ground who nurses from the other one. The amazing thing? Each of her nipples make different formulations of milk for each joey's different nutritional needs 9. Bonobos, our closest genetic relative (they are more closely related to us than they are to either chimps or gorillas) are almost entirely non- aggressive, matriarchal, and use sex to solve all their problems. They engage in both same and opposite sex interactions, non-penetrative sex (oral, rubbing, manual) and with any age. That's an interesting area to work in, lemme tell you 10. Tortoises have super loud sex. Like, really loud 11. All grizzlies are brown bears, but not all brown bears are grizzlies (grizzlies are a sub-categorization of the brown bear) 12. Reindeer are the only deer species where both males and females grow antlers. The males shed theirs the beginning of December, the females shed theirs in the spring. So all of Santa's reindeer are girls, heh. I love telling little kids that 13. If a rhinoceros knocks off its horn, it grows back faster than you'd expect. One of ours, Rosie, has knocked hers off twice 14. Gorillas get crushes on each other. And on the humans that take care of them. Male gorillas also masturbate. I don't know if the females do, I've never seen it. Sometimes it's like a soap opera up in there 15. Langur monkeys are silvery-gray in color-their babies are bright orange Like Cheeto orange, I do not exaggerate 16. Polar bear fur is not white, it's transparent, like fiber optics. Also, thei skin is black This is all excellent and awesome and am a happier, better person for this knowledge Also, you go badass lady reindeer.
