submit one more post and you will be a junior member. ok, now back on topic, my favorite animal would have to be the zebra. I like them only because of their unique and cunning skills in the use of their camouflage that is used to confuse the heck out of lions and other predators because of their instinctive ways of isolating out a smaller, younger prey, or an older, less energetic prey, but the zebras do a great job of making predators just run in on the hunt and "make it up as they go".

SIAFU

Postby Super Grendel » Wed Nov 30, 2005 3:21 am

The SIAFU is my all time favorite, this very special species of ant has no fears what-so-ever. Between thier ability to use there follow ants as strctures (e.g. ladders or bridges) to the fact that they have to move thier colony almost weekly because they completely ravage habitat after habitat and exhaust thier food supply. Unless you're a sausege fly (male SIAFU, is help captive, mated with then eatin) life as a SIAFU is good!

Yes, the traveller ant(SIAFU to locals) is considered Africa's apex predator. Even though they have no venin, they can kill practically anything that stands in their way. There have been several reports of people murdered by these immense groups of female travellers. It is said that the reason why the tasmania forests have no elephants is because the SIAFU killed them(by getting inside their lungs and suffocating them). But still locals consider them a blessing, as they travel along the fields each year and kill all the parazytes they can find...

Don't worry

Postby Super Grendel » Thu Dec 01, 2005 9:57 pm

The SIAFU really only attack humans if they get in thier way. While they do have the ability to kill very large animals, they prefere small mammles, reptiles, and insects. I aslo think that the SIAFU make the african ecosystem nearly invunerable to invasive species. Should a new animal make home in the african forrest, they would be quickly delt with by these tiny titans (having no experience with the Traveler ant or how to avoid them). But it makes you wonder, what if the SIAFU entered a new ecosystem?

My favorite animal is the naked mole rat. Naked mole rats are defined as mammals, though they are unable to regulate their core body temperature. Also, they dig with their teeth and use a conveyor system to remove the dirt from their under-construction tunnels. Naked mole rats are native to east Africa, central and eastern Ethiopia, central Somalia and Kenya. Butt-ugly, but very interesting physiologically and socially.
