Just a friendly reminder that animals will FUCKING KILL YOU given the chance.
except the manatee. the manatee just wanted to say hi
The most dangerous animal in all those pictures, the one responsible for more deaths than any of the other animals combined, is the human
These animals are being locked in small cages, taken away from their herd/group/school/family unit/social structure, and held on display in a loud and obnoxious environment they are not familiar with, while kids are screaming, people tap on the glass and irritate them with flash photography. (Most animals have more sensitive ears and eyes than humans)
I’m pretty sure I’d want to fucking murder you too if I was put in that situation
Nearly every incident you hear of involving a person being injured or dying from an animal attack happen when the animal is in captivity, or the person is being an idiot (exception Steve Irwin but even in that case, it was a defense mechanism because the stingray was being boxed in)
Most of these animals do not give a shit, and will only hurt you if you piss them off
