A természet BTK-ja : Ne lopj a farkasoktól!
this just reminded me of people who say things like
"humans are so evil, animals dont kill and torture eachother"
no they had to all come to rip apart that coyote alive, whic is totally a less painful death than human methods of killing.
But woofs are soooo cyuuuute tho
Wolves commonly kill coyotes. Some wolves become such experts in killing yotes that they will teach their pack mates how to do it, actively seeking out and attacking coyotes for no apparent reason. They don’t eat the coyotes, so it’s not for food, and the yotes pose no real threat or competition as they are so much smaller and generally hunt different prey from wolves. So the only real reason they do it so frequently is out of play and enjoyment.
Humans really aren’t the only ones who hunt for sport.
Wolves are one of the many predators known to kill for fun.
Also on youtube I’ve seen videos of lions injuring hyenas and toying with them until they die. So yep, some animals’ type of playtime involves the torture of other creatures lol.
very cute QUAIL making QUAIL NOISES
Now I’m just watching videos of koalas doing koala things and this
What the fuck are koalas even?
Ibeyi, made up of Cuban-born, Paris-based twin sisters Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz, is an electronic doom soul duo who are forging a new spiritual sound with their debut EP Oya. The 19-year-old musicians are XL Recordings‘ newest signees, and their introductory singles “Oya” and “River” possess a hypnotic blend of hip-hop, electronica, and blues infused with Yoruba prayers and folk songs that will transport you to a higher realm upon first listen.
Singing in French, English, Spanish and Yoruba, Ibeyi count among their primary influences Nina Simone, Meshell Ndegeocello, James Blake and their late father, the celebrated Cuban jazz percussionist Miguel “Anga” Diaz. Ibeyi’s vocal range, which wavers from the raspy and wraith-like to the sonorous and divine, is ideal for their sonic palette which revels in the phantasmagorical groove of liturgical Yoruba songs. Besides singing in Yoruba–which was brought to Cuba by West African slaves–Ibeyi honor their father’s legacy and Afro-Cuban heritage through their percussive production and use of live instruments. Beatsmith Naomi plays both the cajón and the batá while Lisa-Kaindé remains more in tune with the musical mythos of Ibeyi’s sound by weaving Yoruba lore deeply into their lyrics. “River” is dedicated to the goddess Oshun (the mother of the Ibeyi, and their first single and EP are both named for Oya (the benevolent orisha who took the Ibeyi in after Oshun was accused of witchcraft for birthing twins and kicked them out).
