This should be illegal. How does this cat pull this off? If anything we'd suggest that cats know a whole lot more than we give them credit for.

Tumblr Thread: Why Frogs Have Got Weird Bones

Apparently frogs flop around so much it wouldn't be worth it for them to have rib cages. And in conjunction with that, they don't breath the same way something with a ribcage might. It'd be nice to have less bones to break. Tumblr can get way into animal anatomy, like this thread about horse sizes being ridiculous.

Tumblr thread on frog bones | magistrate--mediocrity Frogs basically don't have ribs because they hop they just fucking belly flop onto ground. Evolution never got around giving them ribs because wouldn't be worth broken ribs every time frogs decided go out on land. As result intercostal muscles responsible breathing most vertebrates never developed. Frogs (and most amphibians) rely almost solely on buccal pumping

Tumblr Thread: Horse Sizes are Ridiculous

Leave it to people to parse out the extreme limitations on what you can do with horse genetics. They just get so dang big, it's hard to think about realistically. For some interesting junk about horses and their weirdness, here's a tumblr thread on a "master" in animal sciences getting schooled on horses.

Tumblr Thread: People's Brains Turn Off Around Pets

Seeing an adorable puppy or kitten is much like seeing an adorable baby; you're pretty much rendered senseless and devolve into some kind of nonsensical, muttering mess who is helplessly overwhelmed by adoration. It isn't necessarily a bad thing, and it's a condition that seems to affect us all at one point or another.

Farmers That Were Completely Perplexed By Their Animals

Someone on AskReddit got an entertaining thread going about the times that farmers were left utterly puzzled by strange stunts that their animals pulled. Some animals are more mischievous than others. Or there's those chickens, and how they've been known to apparently let loose cursed cries if one mocks them.

This seal just kinda scoots up, looks you right in the eye, and lets one out. It's as if it's saying "what are you gonna do about it." To answer that question, what we're gonna do about it is laugh to ourselves like the giddy 5th graders that we all truly are.

By no means is a house cat supposed to sound like the beginning of an MGM film, but wow, this healthy looking adult cat has an extremely quiet meow. It doesn't even seem to make sense. Well, at least he looks like he's trying his best.

For sneezing animal aficionados, here's a cat whose sneezing sounds a little like a squeaky door and a lot like the air being let out of a balloon at a high pitch. Shake that sneeze out, cat.

Twitter Thread: Grinch Is The World's Goodest Boy

Blair Braverman's Twitter thread about her adventure with a loving, big hearted good boy named Grinch is pure wholesome gold. Lost it at the one liner about how Grinch basically waited out the span of his short-term memory so that he no longer recalled turning around.
