>>422944 The stink bugs we have here make that sound too. Whenever one flies in the room it sounds like an attack helicopter. but holy shit look at the horns on that giant beetle, it looks like it could snap off the guys fingers with no effort.

The other elephant will then eat the hunk of shitty half-digested plant matter to get all the nutrients out of it

There's a pair of young cats who have begun to regularly show up on the little path next to the local supermarket.
They don't quite let you pet them usually but one time when one was on its own it came over and curled up in my lap, then it began to knead and suck on my tshirt for comfort. It was so adorable, makes me miss living in a house with multiple pet cats.
