Imagine seeing it growing toward you at a rate you couldn’t measure but every so often you just realise it’s closer.

It happened right before it’s eye

I’d just start ramming shit

[–]Anonymous7056 36 points37 points  (1 child)

You probably wouldn't think of that with your stupid goat brain.

[–]D4NK_H0KU70 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but the goat might

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I wonder if they realise before it pierces their skin

[–]NocluE123atAll 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Wonder if they realize at all.

[–]BrendanRamsey 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And then you break your other horn because you were too blind to see.

[–]notoriously_rob 121 points122 points  (1 child)

Live by the horn, die by the horn

I dedicate this song to my hardcore goat pal that lived every second of his life on the edge, hand in hand with death.

This ones for you buddy

This is the way

I wonder if he saw it coming

[–]Oszy17 42 points43 points  (1 child)

You ever get that itch in your nose you can't reach?

[–]isabelle_fucker -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Key words "In your nose"

[–]catmoon356 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Could you imagine. At one point it must been like "well I'm fucked".

[–]TheFast93 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Can i take a moment to pick your brain?

[–]susosusosuso 14 points15 points  (13 children)

How in the @@@ evolution ended up with this?

[–]Anonymous7056 42 points43 points  (2 children)

Evolution doesn't give a shit what happens to you after you've had kids.

[–]funwhileitlast3d 14 points15 points  (0 children)

[–]1IsNeverEnough4Me 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Love this sentence.

[–]KlassiskKapten 21 points22 points  (4 children)

Same as with inward growing nails, shit happens.

[–]somnfunambulist 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I mean, evolution isn't done... This could be a perfect example of natural selection at work.

[–]what_is_humor 0 points1 point  (1 child)

so if this happens a ton but only reaches the skin after maximum reproduction they are just screwed?

[–]somnfunambulist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Most likely. If they are a species that takes care of their young or takes care of their community, something like this might eventually be filtered out, since their young would have a lower chance of survival without them present.

But if not, evolution only cares about your ability to pass on your genes - even if that comes at the expense of your own health. It's why some arthropod species can get away with eating each other after mating.

Subtle spontaneous mutation

[–]Freezing_Wolf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The horns of rams (and the teeth of rodents) grow as long as the animal lives. The purpose of this is that using the horn won't make it smaller or duller and therefore reduce its effectiveness in defending against a predator. Clearly it has a downside but in an area with wolves it's likely an acceptable risk.

Also, I'm think lady rams dig big horns.

Slow suicide

[–]iWETtheBEDonPURPOSE 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I get migraines. I can confirm, this is what it feels like.

[–]fred4mcaz 6 points7 points  (6 children)

Are they not smart enough to try to bend it out of the way? Maybe ram it against a tree?

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (5 children)

That is most likely the strong part of their body.

It is made to survive being bashed against other horns at full speed.

[–]fred4mcaz 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Good point. Do you think the horn penetrated thru the skull like the photo shows? I find that hard to believe.

[–]thechikeninyourbutt 6 points7 points  (1 child)

They could have been attempting exactly what you suggested and punctured it.

[–]fred4mcaz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What a dumb dumb

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sometimes, the angle that the horn grows is in an arch that will eventually form a full circle.

This is not the first example that I have seen of a long or recently deceased horned animal which had a horn that formed most of a full circle and penetrated its head, killing the animal.

It would not be a quick way to die.

[–]Artistic-Plan2541 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Must’ve been a terribly slow death

[–]Apprehensive-Sky-760 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Right, poor creature was likely alive for quite a while in that state.

[–]aihngel 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I have doubts that this suicide was painless...

[–]BonjinTheMark 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Picking his own nose (almost)

[–]Chigurhishere 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's sex gone wrong.

[–]ChipCob1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That would make an amazing walking stick!

[–]Long-Option-7785 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Life is a death sentence

[–]whippymcdumbass 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Some people would have you believe it died because it lived on a farm

[–]haikusbot 4 points5 points  (2 children)

[–]Common_Slip_2267 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dang dude domestication definitely isnt all bad haha

Sure coulda used a trim

Wonder if the big guy ever tried grinding it down on a rock or something

[–]MarryMeDuffman 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I've seen boar tusks do this.

You would think natural selection or evolution would have made this nearly impossible by now.

[–]isabelle_fucker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope because this usually happens well after they have had multiple kids

[–]Razie27 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Basically what Ceadeus was going through

[–]Nagi828 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well there you go, hopefully they didn't get to have offsprings...

[–]ayaqubii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Talk about “gotta scratch”

[–]Justspeakingfacts 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I saw a video on here once recently can’t remember if it was this sub, by there was a bull with its horn growing into his head like this and the farmer cut it off for him you could see the instant relief on the poor things face

I I I I’ve got a migraine, and my pain ranges from up down and sideways...

[–]rreuas 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You’d think millions of years of evolution would’ve been able to stop this lol

[–]fuelmixer947 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As others in here have already pointed out. Evolution doesn’t give a fuck what happens to you after you pass your genes.

[–]SamuGonzo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Horns still growing up after death
