    Why let yourself get eaten in the first place?
    Just be a dung beetle. Sorted.

    The expression on the toad's face

    reminds me of this
    #Persevered
    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    It's like the drunk guy who throws up over a poodle.

    Staggers a bit, looks down at the vomit-covered dug, and says...."I don't remember eating that..."

    Videos like this don't half make me wonder about our relationship with animals generally. It's incredible that those birds would know to do that.

    Amazing.

    I'm still gobsmacked at those swans.

    They deliberately go to the humans for help, then as soon as they're sorted, they become wary again.

    What made them think the humans would help them? It's mind boggling.

    The swans knew it wasn't the Queen so they knew they were in no danger of being eaten.

    To not give up.
    To go the distance.
    To stop at nothing.
