more and more am i seeing videos and gifsets of wild animals in human environments being passed around on tumblr. while the majority of them are harmless on the surface, it feels like a lot of people either don’t question or just straight up ignore how odd it is to see a serval playing with a box in the kitchen, or a sloth clinging to someone’s pet cat, or a wild young bird following somebody around. consequentially, it means a lot of poor rehab ethics, husbandry practises, and iffy animals being kept as pets are being passed around as not only cute, but as acceptable and completely unworthy of criticism.
please consider the source before you reblog a video of a wild animal.
If not for giant sloths, we might not have avocados to enjoy today.
Prehistoric ground sloths first appeared around 35 million years ago. Dozens of species lived across North, Central and South America, alongside other ancient creatures like mastodons and giant armadillos. Some ground sloths, like the megalonychid, were cat-sized, but many were massive. The Megalonyx weighed about a ton, and that was small compared to megatherium, which could reach six metric tons, as much as an elephant. They ambled through the forests and savannas using their strong arms and sharp claws to uproot plants and climb trees, grazing on grasses, leaves, and prehistoric avocados. Smaller animals couldn’t swallow the avocado’s huge seed, but the sloths could,and they spread avocado trees far and wide.
