That's my philosophy about most animals. Like tigers, they're majestic as f*ck! Beautiful beasts with great prowess. You should listen to one roar.

Somewhere between that and sarcastic questioning, showing your displeasure. I thought it's reasonable, vividlyprosaic likes seahorses a lot and I like tigers, I dont think I have anything interesting to say about seahorses. Besides, she doesn't seem to mind.

It was just a weird analogue and I was interested in the comparison.

I also find it funny how the sock downvoted you across your comment.

No comparison just presumed we were talking about our favorite exotic animals.

Yeah, and I wonder whose hamper the little sock fell out of.

I love tigers as well. Sad fact: more are owned as pets in this country than are out roaming free.

Seahorses are remarkable in that it’s the males who give birth. If only humans could do that... o.O

And I’m not really interested in any pets other than kitty cats.

A lot of animals shouldn't be kept as pets. Even cats...if their human is always out and busy...cats get bored and depressed, too.

Actually the house cat posses a rare gene, that no other cat has, that makes it want to be around humans. That is why it has remained tame.

Well dogs seem to like being a pet - they can no longer run in packs and kill things so staying in human care is all they have left. I know mine is happy because she fusses if I am not making eye contact with her all the time. She would live if free if needed because she is happy to eat worms frogs bird **** bird seed mice or anything on the ground. Yet I know she would find the first people who talked to her and stay with them. She loves everyone and everything cept cats which she shys from cause my friend took her a week when young and his big old cat MR. kitty put her in her place, sit on the floor silently and let mr. kitty do what he wants :) .

Seahorses are fine as pets as long as the person knows what he/she is doing.

I've never heard of anyone having a seahorse as a pet? How would they care for one? And why would anyone want one?

Starz you are most welcome. I can't stand it to not know about all topics, so if it is interesting to me I look it up and share what the OP should or could have done in the first place(allthethings)

Just because I didn't post everything I know doesn't mean I'm ignorant about the topic. My foster mother had seahorses and I helped care for them. I don't understand why you persist in seeking me out to "subtly" insult me. Why the last part of the post? Why not just say you look up things that you find interesting? What's the point of making sure to mention what you think I "should have" done? I posted exactly the content I intended to post based on my own 9+ years of experience caring for seahorses.

I envy your knowledge of the sea horses, I had never seen one and knew nothing about them.
