    The animal thread

    This thread is where we can share unusual stories about animals. I hope I won't be the only person posting here. I hope other Sirius Buzz members will participate. Unfortunately, the first two animal stories involve human fatalities. It's hard to feel sorry for this man, though:

    Cassowaries have four-inch dagger-like claws on each foot. With one kick, a cassowary can slice open the body of a predator -- or a human. This man should have kept parakeets instead.

    In the late 1970s, athletes started the practice of "high-fiving." To celebrate a touchdown, a home run, a goal, a basket or some other achievement, they slap each other's upraised right hand. It's a form of bragging and it's annoying. However, it's cute when a cat does it.

    The ASPCA always reminds us to be kind to our "four-legged friends." That would include this duck:

    Hippos are not considered to be an endangered species – yet – but they are "threatened."

    I had a sip of goat's milk only once, when samples were being given out at a county fair. That one sip was one too many. It tasted awful! But goat's milk is the most popular milk worldwide and it's becoming increasingly popular in the US.

    America's new pastime? Milking goats.

    The whale was wearing a harness with an attachment to hold a GoPro camera – but there was no camera. Maybe the whale fell asleep and another spy whale stole it.
