Hey Ozy thanks for that link. It lead me to the article on the Schmidt Sting Pain Index. I really like the detail of his descriptions.

Males attract the females doing a series of periodic movements near water surface generating ripples in the water known as display pumping.

The only thing that this last phrase calls to my mind is a bunch of "bro guys" thrusting in a swimming pool to attract the ladies.

Wildlife in Canada falls into two categories: things that you kill, eat, and wear the skins and furs of for warmth, or things that kill and eat you.
Everything is upfront about it, though. None of this 'I keep my kids in a kiddie pool on my back' or 'I will sting you and leave you to rot in the sun until the vultures and dingoes get you'. It is just a polar bear saying 'dude sorry I'm hungry and it's cold no hard feelings' or a pack of wolves like 'hey dude what you doing out this time of night fool we gonna eat you'.

also when the animal killing you is fuzzy and adorable and their little babies are even more fuzzy and adorable it eases the pain of being ripped apart and disemboweled just a little bit



oh man you little guys are so precious

As numbats are subjugated by humanity, their habitat destroyed and their people weakened they are left with but one choice; they must rebel against the social norms of the anthro-dictatorship. It's not their fault they're hardened criminals, it is ours.
