Human/honeyguide mutualism is one of the most sophisticated interspecies relationships in the animal kingdom. While humans have domesticated many other animals for their labor, the honeyguide remains entirely wild while electing to partner up with humans. Both humans and honeyguides have each developed specific calls to signal to one another that they are on the hunt, and these calls greatly increase the likelihood of success.

That’s fucking bonkers, you guys!!! There are people out there who over the course of human history have created a sound to communicate with birds, and the birds themselves have a Human Call they use to communicate with us. There is no other wild animal you can just make noises at and immediately communicate that you want it to come help you!!! What’s more, many scientists consider this relationship more exploitative on the honeyguide’s end than on our end! That’s unprecedented!! These birds have essentially negotiated a trade deal with humanity!!!! This is the stuff of fantasy movies, except it’s real. Here’s an article from The Guardian about the broader implications of this kind of relationship with wild animals. It’s a good read: Apart from with our gut bacteria, we humans don’t really have any mutualistic relationships with other creatures. There is no special tune that we can sing to magically attract nearby hedgehogs into our gardens to feast on slugs. There will never be a special wink that fishermen can offer otters, encouraging them to catch fish that we might then de-bone for them, in return for some of the catch. The world is poorer for this. OKAY BUT the noise we make at honeyguides is one of my favorite noises there is, and if y’all haven’t heard the “BRRR-HM?” call that hunters use to summon honeyguides you are SERIOUSLY missing out. There’s an audio clip on the Audobon Society’s article about them [link] @metalpaca

Slugs: Oh man con't be late on the nst doy made Theschool year is over son. My first day at class missed it. u afropunker. noideawhatimdoingrightnow Let me just tell you something about this final scene. Isat through this whole movie thoroughly enjoying every last little bit of it.Ieven made a running motion when the first two gifs happened. When the movie finished my boyfriend was very very quiet and he looked a little sad. was very confused because it was a fantastic movie. He turned to me and asked "is that suppose to represent how our education system doesn't make enough accommodations for [mentally slower students?" Monster's University was a little deeper than thought TUMBLR SHUT UP HE IS A SLUG. The literal message is HE IS A SLUG WHO IS SLOW LIKE SLUGS IN NATURE SO STOP. AldenRants 27-50 @torixmay asked me to rant about the fact that time is a man-made concept! DON'T GET ME EXISTENTIALLY CRISIS'D!!! Because guess what!!? I'm FFFFLIPPIN this suggestion on ya!!! This whole "time isn't real!!1!!1!" charade was realllll cute when you were reciting it because of your report due tomorrow or because you stayed up til 3am again, but now you synchronized fitbits are just getting ridiculous AND I'M PUTTING MY FOOT DOWN! Time IS NOT ACTUALLY A MAN-MADE CONCEPT FOR GOLLY'S SAKE! Why would man WANT to make it?!? "We made time to measure the distance between past events" wE mADe TiMe tO MeaSUrE tHe DiSTaNCe BeTwE- NO. WE MADE -MEASUREMENTS- OF TIME TO HELP US COMPREHEND THE VERY MUCH EXISTENT FACTOR THAT IS TIME. Just because we made terms like days and months and seconds to help ourselves understand it doesn't mean we made THE VERY ESSENCE OF TIME up. We made terms to describe linear distances like inches or kilometers but that doesn't mean length is a manmade concept. [Gerald: Phew! I just ran a marathon! 😅 Gerald's asshole friendTM: Ohh, Gerald :) You didn't really run a marathon because distance isn't real :) Gerald :) That was just you conceptualizing how you made it from one point to another :))))) Gerrrraaallllllld] "B-but the Greek philosophers had theories that time was merely our psychosis and shit processing our own experiences" Ah, yes and they were neverrrr 🌎 wrong about 🌍 anything 🌏 that I 🌎 can 🌏 think of
