I will find me some deer in July and see if this is really true
The deer really do roam the city freely. Although they congregate mainly in the park, they traverse around different parts of the city by pedestrian crossing. They seem to observe traffic rules. The males pose steadily when they see a camera, while the females shy away from the lens. They tolerate your touch as long as there is that potential promise of food. No food no touch. They can be aggressive (I pity the lady who was head butted and charged by a deer with 30cm antlers, but for the most part they mostly nip at your clothing and run against you to get attention. I told a deer “dame” (don’t in Japanese) and he stopped rubbing his head against me, took a step back, and started “rubbing” his head in the empty space next to me, which I think is considered bowing.
I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.
Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank
Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.
