  1. Santa obviously is real, here's the true story behind him summed up pretty nicely.
  2. Ooooh yesgooood Right now I have 3 colonies of roaches, a few red spotted assassin bugs, 17 emporer scorps, a rose hair, a jerusalem cricket, and a deathstalker.
  3. Hadn't thought of that one. I dont know why not just make a "reassemble" spell? You can cast it on any hatchling you've hatched and it'll poof up a copy of the egg for you. I mean if we can keep dragons from aging forever I don't see why we couldn't have the magical skill to fix broken eggshells.
  4. Why not just be able to use the breed action without selecting a male to get an infertile egg?
  5. Yeah, probably a few hundred cichlid species are capable of doing that. Its to the point of becoming a huge problem in the aquarium trade as it has watered down pure stock enough its almost impossible to get anything that is actual 100% of one species. Actually, dragon breeding here is really comparable to cichlid breeding. You have a ton of species who can all interbreed, with a few different families that can't (the 2 heads and drakes), and then a couple hybrids that are pretty enough to be considered their own thing. The only real difference is the eggs end up coming out one speci
  6. Well yes obviously DC dragons don't fit earths biology. That doesn't mean we should throw everything biological out the window though. DC does try to be biologically accurate most of the time. (especially with the hangbutt thing which I am eternally thankful for)
  7. Yes, dogs are all the same species, but they are all basically the same exact thing. They look different because they have different sizes and fur and stuff, but they're all still the same thing. You don't have breeds of dogs with prehensile tails or horns or something. If someone actually took the time to breed a dog that had a prehensile tail or something it'd likely be different enough you couldn't breed it back to the other dogs, and would be its own species. If dogs were DC dragons you'd have like basset hounds, golden retrievers, shepherds, and then walruses, bats, armadillos and humpb
  8. Well yeah, but all the dog breeds are almost identical when you get down to it. Sure they might be a little different sized, or different color, or have a smooshed in face or something, but its not like we have dogs that have armadillo shells while some other dogs are legless and then the rest of them have 6 legs. You just don't get the level of differences such as extra limbs and armor and etc etc etc within a breed. For example look how massive the difference is between like a hellfire, and a yulebuck and a water. I mean for true accuracy it wouldnt make sense to have -any- of
  9. I think screamers can be funny (like that korean comic), but I'm not a fan of them in movies. Mostly because movies that rely on them fail to be scary otherwise.
  10. Funfact: Everyone here eats animals. Hundreds and thousands of them. There isn't really such a thing as a person who doesnt eat animals. Mostly because just about every food you eat has invertebrates in it. You guys should read the allowances of how much of certain things is allowed in food, its really interesting and eye opening.
  11. Nah those would just be hybrids I guess. Although none of the breed only species are how hybrids actually work, its probably the closest thing.
  12. Apologies for this, my biologist is showing. Can this be a thing? As it is it makes no sense since the dragons on DC are absolutely not breeds. I'll use wikipedias wording because I like it. "A breed is a specific group of domestic animals or plants having homogeneous appearance, homogeneous behavior, and other characteristics that distinguish it from other animals or plants of the same species and that were arrived at through selective breeding. " DC dragons are obviously not from selective breeding, and are absolutely different species. You don't get "breeds" of an animal with
  13. Makes sense in the concept of cladistics. You can generalize animals like that, but not have them be able to breed. Humans and humpback whales are both mammals, but a person cannot breed with a humpback whale. "Dragon" isn't really a species. what endlessly bothers me is dragons being called "breeds" can we rename that to species please?
  14. Oh god we actually got an invertebrate based dragon YES
  15. Growing plants grows infinitely more animals than the actual meat industry does. Plants aren't capable of pain though, as it would be a complex system that would be completely useless.
  16. oh god i want an insectoid dragon so much
  17. Oooh im liking the noisy ones.
  18. Is my computer just stupidly fast or something? Just a little bit ago i got all seven eggs and it only took me going through 2 of the 5 minute drops.
  19. I wasn't doubting you were afraid of them. Its not like a huge chunk of the western world hasnt had that taught to people or picked it up wherever. I was just saying that's the general trend I have noticed online as far as invertebrates, wasn't referring to you specifically. My apologies, I sort of go off on tangents about this and get into unrelated territory. Its an awfully frustrating thing in the perception of the general public. (as far as the life functioning thing went, I meant that I have no idea how someone who was terrified of all invertebrates would function in a worl
  20. Then you'd have to put -everything- in links. There are plenty of people who are afraid of rats, snakes, and even dogs and cats. It'd be understandable if someone was asking for there not to be live feeding photos of snakes posted or something, but I don't see how there could actually be a rule for not posting a group of animals that is the vast majority of animal life on earth, and of which there and numerous species of them in literally every concievable place on the planet. (I always tend to assume most people just try to get stuff blocked because its something they just dislike
  21. Wait what? The kangaroo one makes no sense, roos hold their tails in the air when they are jumping. (also you can't tell turtle gender by noise, all turtles can hiss)
  22. Just make it so theres a year or two long gap before you can unfreeze something. I doubt people would be abusing it for convenience or whatever then.

    Anime!

    I always highly recommend evangelion.
