Let's Get Distracted! It's Mammal Analysis Time!

 

If there's one thing, nay, one group of things that is loved here at Posting and Toasting more than our sacred New York Knickerbockers, it's mammals.  They're cuddly, sometimes ferocious and always heartwarming, but most importantly, talking about mammals is not talking about Carmelo Anthony.  (Unless you're discussing his mammal-attributes. In that case, he's fair game.)   Endlessly throwing out silly trades and talking about Eddy Curry's expensive corpse are fun and all, but the discussion gets stale after a while.  For some deeply shared, instinctive reason, animals are always fresh to talk about. 

So here we have it.  Deep in the dog days of Summer, it's time to talk mammals.

 

Let this be your thread for all discussions featuring our furry brethren, be they feline, equine, primate, what have you.  Anything's fair to converse about, as long as it doesn't include the keywords "Carmelo", "Melo", "Anthony", "Chris Paul", "CP3", or "moist".  

Here's an introduciton for all of you who slept through class.  It says "birth membrane" at one point, so it's fun for the whole family. 

 

What is a Mammal? (via jfriesgaither)


Let's kick off the conversation.  Today, I learned that Camels have a gestation period of 405 days on average, while Oppossum ladies only have to deal with a 13 day gestation period, and Cheetahs are so badass that their gestation time was just left off the chart because no one wanted to count that shit.  Also, what's your favorite mammal and why?  Are you particularly terrified of a certain mammal? Why? What are your opinions on reptiles, birds, amphibians, and lobed fish?

 


Fire away, cheesecakes.
