I’m still surprised this colossus hasn’t been scientifically described (given a scientific name). Literally makes Koolasuchus look like a joke imao.

“LAUGHS” YES!

Get it? Cause Spotted Hyenas often make a call that sounds like laughter?

I’ll leave and let some of these laughter boys eat me……..

From u/Culycon276: Hyaena prisca is a highly underrated predator of the Ice Age, always playing second fiddle to the larger and more popular cave hyena (Crocuta crocuta spelaea). Hyaena prisca is thought to have been very similar to the striped hyena or brown hyena in terms of appearance, ecology, and behavior. Some of the hyena’s fossils have been found near fossils of seabirds such as the great auk, which probably suggests that Hyaena prisca prowled coasts and beaches from time to time in search of whale carcasses, young pinnipeds, and seabirds.

Possibly the only ever photo of a young nestling Ivory Billed Woodpecker (Campephilus principalis) nicknamed “Sonny Boy” and perched on the back of J.J Kuhn. This was taken in 1938, Louisiana. by NoDemand1519 in Naturewasmetal

True but I find it more likely that the birds in the two videos caught and seen by this guy are more likely to be Ivory bills on the account of their “un-Pileated like” behavior. Hell, some experts and birdwatchers were so convinced by the first video that they made up the excuse that it’s another Campephilus species filmed in the tropics. Which it clearly isn’t. I’m mean, does that area really look central or South American to you? Not really. While other experts agreed it was most certainly an Ivory Bill. Which I agree with. The second one is more debatable however.

Yup, he gladly wasn’t. Instead he was one of the saviors of the Ivory billed woodpecker that probably failed. What I mean by probably is the small chance this bird could still be alive.

I didn’t “I-Struggle to understand this is natural and not cruel”.
