How do animals view death? The elephant seems to know what death is all about. When a companion falls down, they will arch it with their noses to help it stand up. If it still doesn't work, they know that the elephant is dead. After that, they will stay with their dead companions, as if in tribute, reluctant to leave for a long time. After the chimpanzee’s child died, even if the child’s body had shrivelled like a mummy, the mother still held it. Most animals know how to die.
"I'm going to die soon?" They might feel the breath of death. Animal hearing and smell are much sharper than humans, and sometimes we can feel strange things that we can't notice.
A friend of mine is a veterinarian and also an animal photographer. He told me something like this: A zebra infected with an infectious disease seems to send out messages like "Kill me" and "eat me". Upon receiving this message, the lion chooses its hunting target. . If it spreads infectious bacteria in the zebra herd, the entire zebra herd will die. If the infected zebra does not die sooner, the zebra herd will be in trouble. If it died earlier, the virus would not spread to the entire zebra herd. Therefore, hunting animals can prevent the virus from spreading to the entire zebra herd by eating the zebra with the infectious disease.
In the world of wild animals, everyone is fulfilling their role with due diligence.
It is said that wild animals live in a world where the weak and the strong eat the most. But is this really the case? It was just a casual sigh after humans observed the relationship between each species. "The strong hunter lion" and the "weak prey zebra" do seem to conform to the logic of the strong eating of the weak, but they are not. The lion and zebra just form a reasonable chain of life and death, and this does not mean that one of them is strong and the other is weak. The so-called "king of beasts" is nothing but a title imposed by people. Lions in nature are not so majestic, they will die if they are sick, and they will starve to death if they cannot catch food. They are equally focused and humble in life. I have been to the savannas of Africa, but I think that the hordes of zebras are more elegant than lions.
Nature is based on ecological balance. If there are no carnivores playing the role of hunters, the number of herbivores will increase blindly, and eventually all the plants will be eaten up, and the party that originally played the prey will become extinct. Therefore, hunters who are responsible for maintaining balance have a very important task.
The hunter in Hokkaido, the wolf, has been extinct due to the hunting of humans, and there are no more animals left. As a result, the herd of deer in Hokkaido has exploded, and now the forests, grasslands, and fields have been gnawed into a barren, very desolate.
After traveling around the world and seeing wild animals all over the world, I thought that maybe death without human interference is correct. Whether it is the savanna of Africa, the tropical Amazon rainforest, the severe cold of Siberia, or Japan-the growth and death of all natural creatures should conform to the laws of nature and not be disturbed by any external factors.
