Isn’t it nice sitting luxuriously at the top of the food chain? If it’s even remotely edible, we can find it at Wal-Mart or Publix and microwave it for dinner. We deep-fry our ice-cream, we double stuff our Oreos, and we top our pizzas with whatever’s left over on the kitchen counter.
Meanwhile, snakes live for a whole week off a single mouse and alligators can go over a year without eating if they can’t catch any food! Survival of the fittest is no picnic, my friend.
Luckily, though, we’re so high on the food chain, we can spare some of the wealth with other animals. Let another animal eat out of the palm of your hand, and try not to be scared of it biting your fingers. Most domesticated animals are careful not to do that, but if it accidentally does, it won’t hurt much!
(Oh, and be sure to wash your hands afterwards!)
