Being a nature lover wildlife documentary channels are mainly what I am after on Youtube. Annual weather changing has leterally rendered only two seasons in the great Africa continent, wet and dry. Rich and barren alter continuously year after year. This distinctive environment has shaped the distinctive life formats of all the living creatures on this land.
New borns are facing hostilities immediately after arriving the world, even as the top predator, lion for instance, only one fifth of the lion cubs can make their adulthood. The threats from their own species are even greater than from the competitors, male lions will kill lion cubs that are not of their own to stimulate the female lions available to mate again in order to produce their own offsprings, since the lionesses will not mate when raising cubs. Lepoards and hyenas are no match to mather lionesses but can kill lone lion cubs to reduce competition, lions will do the same to other lesser predators. Every species has developed its own surving strategy. The fittest keeps surving the left goes extinction.
No animal dies at old age in Africa. In this blood soaked land, nothing is gone waste, one life loss is other's gain, all lives depend on eachother. Herbivores feed from vegetations and carnivores feed from herbivores so to control the population of hebivores and meanwhile give nature opportunities for reproduction. After the carnivores died there are scavengers to clean the carcases. Everyone takes its need, lions take the biggest chunks of meat, vultures, hyenas, jackals compete the bones and scraps, dust covers any traces, a ferocious killing site quickly disappears, next day, as if nothing ever happens. Eventually everything is biodegraded and return to the earth, from where new lives start. Life cycle is in a subtle balance without human intervension. All lives deserve respect.
Nature has also shaped my worldview. Balance need to be carefully maintained from every aspect in the earth, coexistance is not possible without balance. Dangerous tipping over is never far from our world.
While I am taking this note another debatable topic has been brought into my attention, from a hunter's point to view nature, the name of the topic will be " In the blood". I will do another one whenever I am in a writing mood again.
"Newborns" is one word and no space in between. I just checked.:)
I happened to watch a tiger and a lion fought each other on Youtube someday. It was stimulating and scary.
What youtube channel do u watch?
Have to work tomorrow.
seems so crule in your writing, but we all know, the real life is even more crule. Yet we still love it
