Isn’t Nature Nice?

No.

For example, look at some of the goofier species, frogs and toads. In general, their policy appears to be: if it’s moving and I can get it into my mouth, I will eat it.

Here, a cane toad, a species noted for its voracious appetite (cane toads are known to have eaten pounds of bees at a sitting), eats – a bat. Why? It was moving, and it fit in the toad’s mouth.  This toad would gladly eat you, if you met the criteria.

I came. I saw. I ate it.

Happy ending? The toad eventually determined that it couldn’t get the bat down, and spat it out, and it flew away.  The bat, not the toad. Therefore, one utterly disrespected and somewhat repulsive (to many) species failed to eliminate a member of another, even more repulsive (to many), disrespected species even though it had ‘im right where he wanted ‘im.

Makes me think of Congress for some reason.

Enough with the smarty-pants Dante quote. Just some opinionated blogger dude.
