Content Guidelines

All posts must contain at least one picture of a creature along with informative text about it. Example of high quality post. Gifs and videos are allowed in addition to the minimum requirements.

Posts must be related to creatures. This does not mean specifically animals, but anything that is/was alive on our planet. This includes plants and microorganisms (viruses, bacteria, fungi, etc). Strictly no fictional/fantasy creatures.

A post does not have to focus on a single species, but can focus around a certain group or type of creature if you want to include multiple species.

All creature posts must be informative in some way. It is allowed (and encouraged!) to include some humor, but the main content of the post should be informative.

An album may only be reposted to the sub 8 months after it was originally posted. The repost must also link to the original thread and be flaired appropriately. If you are posting someone else's work, you must credit them in the comments. We encourage you to rework or update old information if it is necessary.

Remember to flair your post as NSFW if it contains excessive gore or sexual/disturbing images.

We reserve the right to remove any posts that we find lazy, uninformative or in violation of these guidelines. You can message the mods if you feel any content removal is unfair or unjustified.

Looks real to me

The way it slows down and catches up so easily is way to much for any human

I caught these cute Rhinos on camera. They were grazing, I followed them. They can move up to 40 miles, trekking for food.

I would love to be able to showcase them to the world along with facts and knowledge about species that play such a small, amazing role on Earth. To be able to do that I need to reach 1,000 followers on my TikTok account which will then allow me to go Live and extend myself to people that want to enjoy my hobby with me!

Please, if you’re willing to help, follow and support my hobby and my going Live dream!

Reptiles VS Mammals

Few days ago I watched Netflix documentary called “life on our planet” and it made me wonder, what if evolutionary life just became a confrontation between reptiles and mammals? There were few periods in Earth evolution, when mammals were dominant creatures such as lystrosaurus which were dominant after Permian-Triassic extinction event and for a long time in early Triassic epoch until reptiles in face of erythrosuchidae became a dominant class. And then in Triassic epoch started dinosaurs era, when mammals were just food for them. Now we live in an era of mammals (humans) and I can’t answer two questions:

  1. Is now really a mammals era? Or just reptiles who had been developed in dinosaurs and then in birds now became a highest evolutionary creatures and we live in their simulation or just under their control and don’t know about that?
  2. If now we living in mammals era (humans as the most intelligent creatures) reptiles might be in “waiting” mode and in future there will be war between mammals and reptiles, or even a reptiles era?
