    Font - nat @ncm0611 People are too casual about the fact that parrots can talk 8:57 PM Mar 13, 2021 - Twitter for iPhone 66.5K Retweets 3,828 Quote Tweets 508.1K Likes

    Every once in a while, we fall into the black hole on YouTube that is the "parrots talking" hole, and it really humbles us. These creatures are seriously cool, carrying out whole conversations with their humans and simultaneously being some of the most adorable beings on the planet.

    Font - high end chew toy @awalsh89 Replying to @ncm0611 I hadn't considered how I just accepted that. Now I feel like my dog isn't even trying! 5:01 PM · Mar 14, 2021 Twitter for Android 71 Retweets 10 Quote Tweets 3,488 Likes

    We can't agree with that actually. It definitely feel like my dog is trying to talk with me sometimes lol. He just doesn't have the necessary parts to use to be able to express all that many sounds. That's okay though, barking in different tones will do for now. Eventually, with time, considering how hard they try to talk to us, they'll probably develop something that'll allow them to do that.

    Font - Spoon @jimmy_rickets Replying to @jimmy_rickets and @ncm0611 Since people are asking, elephants have "rituals" that have to do with the moon. They wave sticks at the moon when it's waxing and bath when it's full.

Replying to @jimmy_rickets and @ncm0611 Critics are usually quick to point out that some of that its "anthromorphorizing" to assign feeling like grief to animals but personally I think its insane to accept that feeling like love and grief are evolutionary consequences and assist our survival by creating strong 10:23 PM · Mar 14, 2021 · Twitter for Android 75 Retweets 1 Quote Tweet 2,676 Likes
