    Maybe, maybe not.



    The brute has nowhere near the capacity to even ponder life's miseries as does man, which is why you may not see man prefer to be another animal, but you will often see him rather be dead than be himself/human.

    By that same rationale, having to dodge lions and alligators daily does not necessarily mean it's negative to be an Impala.

    Agreed. Male praying mantis, too.
    Imagine being eaten alive right after busting a nut.

    Factory raised chicken seems like the worst, even worse than pigs and cows. They are kept in such close confines that they peck each other to death, live in each others shit, etc.

    A human.

    Just kidding.

    It sucks to be just about any animal that lives in the wild, has to worry about getting mauled to death, 50% of your offspring won't make it to adulthood, if you don't beat a rival male you'll never get laid again, etc.

    That applies to a crapload of animals, so any of them.

    Pretty much any wild prey animal has it bad. Always hungry and scared.

    Most prey animals have abundant food,outside desert areas or other extreme terrain. Rabbits, rodents, antelopes usually have abundant grasses, leaves, scavenging they can take advantage of which leads to their best defense V predators which is their prolific breeding and numbers. YEs they survive by simply being able to withstand the mass attrition their numbers suffer to predators.

    I would suppose that being a lungfish is pretty boring.

    You lose all your pride, dignity dressed up like bitch just for your owner amusement. You still have to take shits from human while smiling hoping your owner won't disown you despite having done everything in your power to please them.
