Please talk about dinosaurs and other fossilized animals instead of proving definitively that you don't understand crocodile anatomy.

Why do hunters insist on killing off the strongest males? I get they look cooler to their redneck buddies but they would actually benefit the ecosystem if they killed off the weaker ones instead.

>1: read the wiki: it will be necessary to understand what's happening in this thread and what do the animals do. the wiki will not be updated with new pages from this thread, but i will complete existing pages overtime.

Welcome to the 3nd part of the /an/ speculative evolution project!
>what is this?
this is a project that i started a couple months ago, in which anyone can contribute. you take something (an animal) listed on this wiki:
https://4chan-spec-evo-project.fandom.com/wiki/4CHAN_SPEC_EVO_PROJECT_Wiki
and you make a submission in which you tell how it could evolve, and i will make a drawing and some text to explain what does it do and what happens. you can also suggest names for locations and eras (i really need those, current ones suck ass)
>why do they all look like penises?
any animal looks like a penis if you squint enough :)
>are there rules to submissions?
every creature must be evolved from LIVING animals (i'm posting what's survived this map next post), and have to be plausible and coherent to the project (this is not an actual requirement, but i'd be glad if you followed it)
>can i edit the wiki?
ask me before, but don't expect to be granted the wish, i'm still a dummy with fandom
>can i make a drawing of my creature myself?
sure, but i will make one too anyways :))

Yauub: eventually, even the ubaams manage to reach the equator, albeit their success has already been compromised by the local hoorms. however, some semiaquatic descendants adapt to live in the vast middle sea, feeding off large quantites of plants such as foul moss, melonlettuces and even shaded scrub's eggs. the yauub is perfectly adapted to live in water, with a sleek, stocky appearance, large front limbs readapted into fins and vigorous backfins. it's lage size and retained claws, derived from feelers fused with the front fins, also give it ways to defend from predators. the yauub has evolved to become a social creature, traveling in herds across the sea. thanks to it's lungs it doesn't have to deal with the poorly oxygenated marine environement, which also gives it an edge over most other animals. sometimes, these animals may come to the shore, in safe areas, to bask under the sun and mate.

Qlubar: meanwhile, the arrival of the scythed rostrilians, such as nigthcrawlers and riphounds, has put in trouble the local qulobs. one way the species adapted to it's predators was to reduce in size and give to climbing. the qlubar, with it's flexible, curved bones, is the king of the succugrasses groves. it's sharp claws and flat body shape help it grasp more easily to the trunks, while the brownish coloration and very extended feelers aid in avoiding predators. it possesses a long neck and a sharp beak with which it hunts slit grubs and other species, including spray grubs, to which it's dizzy toxin they are immune. the qlubar are solitary creatures, usually inhabiting only one tree, which they make their home by cutting the leaves to make themselves easy passages. they only meet other of their kind at night, during mating season. many of them remain killed off during this period, as well as many of their spawn, shelled out in the thousands, as they traverse the lands not whitin the safety of their trees.

Razorfin Crab: as copperhead crabs spread out and confirm themselves as the dominant predators of the middle sea, they also evolve, improving their form even better. the razorfin crab is a true titan of the scutocephalans, almost as big as a small xenicthyan, and probably the biggest one can get in the oxygen-poor region of the middle sea. the main notable change of the razorfin is the reduction and softening of the shell on the body segments, leaving more space to the flesh and fins, which become even more flexible to allow almost flawless paddle-based swimming. to keep all of this in shape, a simple notochord has even begun to appear, giving sustain to the whole body. only the second segment remains somewhat protected to avoid unwanted danger and intimidate. the fearsome beak has elongate further, assuming a needle-like appearance and with it's arm becoming elongated and articulated. while the oil-based propulsion has been retained, it's barely even used and on the way to disappear. the razorfin hunts relentlessly among teh shallow waters of the sea, both small and big preys. for the latter, it likes to wait for their passage hidden in the sand at the sea floor, only to blast in and assault the preys in vital areas. teh newly evolved yauub are one of it's preferred preys.

the razorfin should keep the oil and use it as a get-away tool like octopus use their ink on earth imo

Rats do the same thing. They grind their teeth in pleasure repeatedly when they get pet or feel safe and their eyes practically lift out of their skull. They also get stupid looks on their face and even stick their tongues out.

I'm trying to de-chonk a 26 pound cat. He went down 1.5 pounds in about 3 weeks. I took his weight again 9 days after the third week and he hasn't lost an ounce. Is that normal? How much weight would be ideal to lose per week / month?

He's the family cat and convincing my family to feed him less is like pulling teeth. They leave a kibble bowl out. I've gotten them to put away the bowl for a some amount of time daily, but it's not enough. They just take it back out if a cat so much as makes eye contact.

I've got a kitten from a shelter and she isn't afraid of me and allows me to pet her but she refuses to leave her spot with me around. I know she walks around when I leave the room or sleep.
Should I be worried? It has ben 2 days and I'm worried she might be sick or something. For now I'm thinking about giving her 5 days and if it continues I'm taking her for a check up

>The monkey lovers are some of the most delusional people around.
I watched some youtube documentary about the problems with the monkey pet trade and the owners are legit insane. There was some middle aged white woman who would take her monkey into public spaces in a stroller like a baby and when asked about it would lecture passers by on how it's "not a pet, but a life companion". There was also a family with an obviously miserable and mentally ill monkey that would have it sit at the dinner table with them and when it bit their kid (who was terrified of it) repeatedly they shat on him for provoking it. Monkeys are cool but nobody should keep them as pets, not just million pity fags.
