This was hanging in the bathroom in the restaurant I ate at tonight. Only in China...
A different kind of nosejob
Ah yes, the ol' trunk tug.
The ol' Snout & Spout!
They use it like it’s their hand
And this is why the evolution of an elephant's intelligence will be capped forever.
Same reason why cats will probably never reach human-level intelligence. The instant the males discover they can lick their own balls, the species would stop.
My aunt has a pet rat (male). He spends most of his day fellating himself furiously
That seems like a sign of stress or boredom ... Is that normal behavior in the wild?
I used to own a pet store and bred rats (for pets and reptile food). It’s not normal behavior even in captivity. Then again, male rats were rarely without companions, so maybe it’s normal lonely male rat behavior (which wouldn’t occur in the wild). But rats are social, so there’s probably little normal about the activities of a single rat.
