Reviled, feared and scorned, the hyena is both intelligent and highly flexible. Learn more about this key member of the “predator guild” in today’s Fast Facts.

its really upsetting that this show about “fast facts” is actually really inaccurate. out of the 4 facts, 2 are wrong. (i’m not counting “laughing/cackles” as a fact… bc everyone knows that and it isn’t explained)
hyenas are scavengers:
really?? this is outdated. they are scavengers by day, and VERY SUCCESSFUL HUNTERS at night. up until recently, we didn’t know that because its hard to record things at night, but now we know that they are 75% successful in their killings! lions are successful 20% of the time. hyenas have actually raised their kill rate bc their kills get stolen by lions all the time!
stealing from lions: its usually the other way around. lions are known for following hyena whoops to the kill to steal THEIR kill. i’ve usually seen hyenas WAIT for lions to finish before taking the kill too!! its actually really hard to steal a kill from lions because of their coordination with each other. hyenas and lions specifically steal from each other a lot and even kill each other, mostly out of pure hate. they don’t eat each other, they only want to kill each other over prey and territory. lions have been known to kill matriarchs and toy with the body.

i imagine dragons need to eat metals (gold hoarding) for fire breathing and eat gems for egg shell production, underbelly protection, and to fill their gizzard for semi-manual digestion (because their teeth are not used for chewing obvi)

dichotomization:

A dead bat still hanging from the ceiling of a cave. 

Fun fact: When the muscles in a bat’s feet/legs relax, the foot closes. (Contrast to our hands, which open when the controlling muscles relax.) This is why bats can sleep—and die—upside down.

wait cant you die holding something because it takes ATP to relax your muscles, and since ATP is something your not making when you are dead, rigor mortis happens? i’m not doubting the bat fact is true, i’m just saying that i’ve seen monkeys mummify in trees so dyng being attached to something isn’t bat specific
