If only i could do special effects, I would add in tracers from an ARMA video and explosions that look better

I'm a shark. I'm eating my siblings while i'm still inside my moms womb. I like the easy life at the beach, hanging around with my surfer friends.

You didn't got nurtured enough, that's why you have all the attention.

Let an infant alone in the woods it will die, It can't even walk on its own.
That's why it gets the attention. Because it's not even half-finished when it's born, but for that matter highly adaptive.
Most other animals are finished when they're born, at least they're able to walk.
The bones aren't even hard when humans are born.

Do I understand it correctly that you're comparing human babies to other animal babies and thinking we're worse than they are?

You wouldn't be wrong, however you might be missing the big picture.

The reason we start off so weak and helpless, and stay that way for much longer than other animals, of which some can not only stand, or stand and walk, but even run, just minutes after being born, is simply because we are so brilliant.

Think about it. A human being has the biggest brain-to-body size ratio of any animal, but the brain (and thus the head) can only grow so big before a baby is born, for it to be able to get pushed out without killing the mother. Therefore we need several decades to finish growing. Because of our cognitive abilities, we are capable of learning and are by nature curious even from a very young age. We have a thirst for knowledge, and it takes a very long time for parents to pass that on to a child.

Our strength may not be running fast, jumping high, enduring extreme climates, or fighting off wild beasts with our bodies, but it doesn't matter. We have something much better than that: our brains and our hands. Our brains give us creativity and intelligence (problem solving), and our hands are designed in a way to make us easily be able to work with both very fine things, like needle and thread, and use them for strength-requiring tasks, like hammering something. Everything you see around you stems from human beings' two hands: the clothes on your body, the monitor in front of you, the wall behind it, and so on. If not built directly with our hands, then our hands built the thing that in turn built that. Imagine doing that with something clumsy like hooves.

The reason giraffes can run shortly after being born is because they don't need to learn much intelligence wise to be able to survive, and that goes for most animals. They are fine on instincts and some basic intelligence. The smarter an animal, the longer it has to stick with its parents

That's what I love about humans as animals. When stripped down to our natural state we are some of the 			*********		 animals ever. We can't run fast, we don't have claws or razor sharp teeth, we can't smell far, we lose 1 v 1 against most medium sized animals, and our young cry so loudly that any predator that wanted it could find it in a minute.    
   
But after hundreds of thousands of years, with just our smarts, we've managed to conquer the world so much, that we can decide what creatures we want to go extinct and which ones we don't, and we've essentially stepped outside of the food pyramid. We've bred wolves so much that we've created hundreds of separate species just to fit our needs; look at a chihuahua then to an actual wolf. The countries of the world have enough nuclear firepower to destroy most life on Earth. We are the greatest species on this planet and how lucky are you to have not been born a sea turtle to die about 5 minutes after you're hatched?

Yeah but we trade speed for endurance

I hear we are the best at endurance too.

I remember watching an episode of Zaboomafoo where the baby sea turtles were scuttling towards the water and trying not to get eaten by the birds and crabs. I always wondered why the Kratt brothers didn't do anything to help them.
User avatar #19 to #14 - eiaisqzbsesb (01/22/2014) [-]
Because it's unethical to step in between a predator and it's prey unless the prey is human or the prey is something you depend on / plan on taking care of yourself.
User avatar #27 to #19 - smashingprodigy (01/22/2014) [-]
There are also laws that prevent you from going anywhere near sea turtle nests. There are parts of beaches that are closed off just to prevent anyone from wandering in.

Only nineties turtles will know this.

I should not move to a beach where sea turtles lay their eggs. Knowing me I'd probably save as much as I can and ruin the ecosystem.

There's still predators in the sea that can even things out.
User avatar #17 - bjorntheberserk (01/22/2014) [-]
Everytime I see that **** happening to baby turtles I always just want to step on the crabs and punch those seagulls. ******* assholes leave the turtles alone!!!
#23 to #17 - funmanigro (01/22/2014) [-]
if we all did that we'd have an overpopulation of turtles and depopulation of seaguls and crabs.

Hey, predators! Leave them turtles alone!

WE DON'T NEED NO, OVERPOPULATION
HEY! PREDATORS!
LEAVE THEM TURTLES ALONE!

It's natural selection. Survival of the fittest. The surviving turtles only have enough to eat because they don't all survive. Another thing is that crabs and pelicans need food to eat too
#45 to #18 - justalie **User deleted account** (01/22/2014) [-]
Survival of the fittest is the reason we save endangered animals by putting the remaining in captive so **** the seagulls because they stole my food before and crabs are dumb as **** because the only ones anyone cares about live in the deep cold waters that turtle's aren't born into so **** seagulls and crabs in their stupid animal asses.

I had the chance to help collect an hatch baby sea turtles and let me tell you it wasn't like the Croc Hunter special where he just lets all the other animals eat the babies. We released them at night and if any birds tried to get them we'd throw rocks. Funny thing is the people running the project were more worried about Mexican poachers than animals. I wish I could have seen my groupmate's faces when the Mexican police showed up on the beach at night with automatic rifles. (The police thought they were poachers).

A photo of a loggerhead turtle digging a burrow to lay its eggs on the coast of Fraser Island, Australia. It's surprising how large they actually are.

It could be worse little turtle. You could be at the top of this list and be pathetically unsatisfied with it.
