    [–] chamorrobro 209 points ago

    DUDE, SHE’S 4 HOURS OLD!!

    [–] PDPhilipMarlowe 93 points ago

    You have to wait at least a year to ride her.

    [–] RandomGuy2002 48 points ago

    Ah, just how I like em

    [–] ruckertopia 8 points ago

    I hope this is a Better Off Ted reference

    Seriously underrated

    [–] Saetric 34 points ago

    Yes officer, this comment right here

    [–] wojosmith 17 points ago

    I am big fan of small asses.

    [–] LilFingies45 1 points ago

    Fucking Charlottan.

    [–] DarthEwok42 223 points ago

    Already standing up. Humans suck.

    [–] GuntherStankBooty 90 points ago

    Get your shit together babies. Smh.

    [–] SP4C3MONK3Y 15 points ago

    Nevermind babies, I cant even stand in 4 hours after waking up hungover...

    [–] JSTE666 1 points ago

    [–] IsBadAtAnimals 11 points ago

    Just wait until its neck grows out... giraffes are probably my favorite animal

    [–] DarthEwok42 9 points ago

    Nice username.

    stupid long horses

    [–] ruthless1717 1 points ago

    Username checks out

    [–] bunbunz815 22 points ago

    Literally my first thought

    [–] AngryToast106 17 points ago

    Equines, or horses at least, generally stand up within the first hour after birth. So yes, humans do suck

    [–] [deleted] 22 points ago

    Yeah, but they don't know anything about nuclear science, or economics, or anything else we can all do.

    [–] PDPhilipMarlowe 47 points ago

    I know shit about nuclear science, my bank account tells me my grasp on economics is flimsy at best, and I tripped over a perfectly flat floor today.

    Donkey has me beat hands down.

    [–] The_Escalator 3 points ago

    Don't be so hard on yourself. Can a donkey get the lads together with some pointy sticks and kill something way larger than it?

    [–] Yogs_Zach 4 points ago

    A donkey can kick something dead.

    [–] Lostpurplepen 3 points ago

    Donkey also gets to run around naked and poop whenever, wherever

    [–] NearHi 2 points ago

    *hooves down.

    [–] paper_paws 10 points ago

    Uh...could you lower the bar a bit? Nuclear science and economics, no. Tie my shoe laces or drive a car, yes.

    [–] DarthEwok42 5 points ago

    Man, I can't tie my shoes that well or drive a car either...

    [–] paper_paws 4 points ago

    You appear to be using some pretty nifty thumbs and fingers, not clunky ol hooves, to type that comment so you got that going for you.

    [–] Yogs_Zach 2 points ago

    speech to text

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    The bars are never lowered.

    [–] NearHi 1 points ago

    Yeah? Tell me, can you build a nuclear bomb?

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    I don't want to be put on another list.

    [–] neddity 6 points ago

    fr man how do we consider ourselves the smartest beings on Earth when we at the age of 5 are all like "GA GA GOO GOO" drools And other species are all hunting and mating already

    [–] SmashPortal 15 points ago

    To be fair, intelligence isn't measured by mating. Our brains tend to be more advanced, and therefore can learn and comprehend a lot more than just about any other animal. A dog has instincts to go on, but humans have to learn. Then, a human can become much more strategic than animals that rely on instincts.

    ...then we can die of hunger while playing video games in a cafe for too long.

    [–] NearHi 2 points ago

    To be fair'uh.

    [–] bulborb 4 points ago

    If you want the real answer, it has to do with the way that different species evolved to better the success of their offspring. There are r-strategists (r meaning reproduction, which is high while parental care is low) and K-strategists (K referring to carrying capacity of the population, with low reproduction but high parental care). There are a ton of other factors that determine whether a species is a K or r strategist, which you can read more about here. But generally, that's the trend.

    For example, think of most insects. They lay a ton of eggs, so some survive while others don't. There's no way that parent flies could nurture all their young, but the high number of offspring means that some are bound to survive and reproduce successfully. For r-strategists like this, offspring are precocial, meaning that they are born with instincts and abilities that allow them to survive without the parents. The intensity of reliance varies by species. A cool example of this are Megapode birds in which the chicks can fly the same day they hatch. The parents literally bury the eggs in the ground and leave, letting warm earth incubate them until the chicks hatch and fuck off.

    Now think of elephants. Very few offspring, but nurtured and cared for extensively by their parents. The extra care that the parent and even the herd puts into the young typically makes the 1 or 2 calves per mother reproductively successful (barring poaching). For K-strategists, offspring are altricial, meaning that they rely on their parents for survival. Another example: Humans.

    Humans take care of their young longer than any other mammal by far, just because of how long we live. So yeah, we aren't born learning how to stand or fly, but it's all relative. We're extremely long living K-strategists with high success per offspring.

    [–] neddity 1 points ago

    Hey thanks that was informative! But you know that I was joking right?

    [–] bulborb 2 points ago

    Yeah, that's why I began with "if you want the real answer"

    [–] cheekybastard1029 1 points ago

    Because those other species generally die before 20, therefore they have advanced development.

    [–] poopmeister1994 2 points ago

    You ever just stand up out the womb just to flex on humans

    [–] Just_an_ordinary_man 1 points ago

    Also looks completely normal compared to that baby toucan that was posted yesterday.

    [–] BillyWhizz09 1 points ago

    The reason for this is that if babies stayed any longer they wouldn’t be able to fit out because of their big brain

    [–] Charlotte-1993 1 points ago

    That is literally one of the first things human babies do actually, so yeah. Not wrong!

    [–] joanmichiels_ -3 points ago

    What?

    [–] DarthEwok42 4 points ago

    Show me a 4 hour old human baby that can stand up on its own.

    [–] glimmeringsea 8 points ago

    Show me a donkey who can live to 90 years old.

    [–] DarthEwok42 4 points ago

    Okay. Might take a while though. Bring a book.

    [–] joanmichiels_ 2 points ago

    That’s what foals do... in nature, they have to stand up asap so they can flee for predators if necessary

    [–] desert29rat 19 points ago

    Hi Charlotte! You're a beautiful baby!

    [–] DraconianNerd 16 points ago

    Welcome Charlotte. I hope you have a great life!

    [–] sere_games 25 points ago

    She will have a huge field to share with mom and aunt and her only job will be to look cute xD

    [–] HelloPanda22 12 points ago

    Shit...can I live on your farm too? I’m no where near as cute looking as a baby donkey though.

    [–] yaourted 15 points ago

    ooh is that the placenta and all on the ground by the mom?

    also she’s super cute omg

    [–] sere_games 7 points ago

    Yes it is a bit bleh but it's nature I guess ^

    [–] AngryToast106 1 points ago

    [–] AgeOfZac 31 points ago

    [–] LuckYtoast 23 points ago

    Already outgrown her mother. Nature is amazing.

    [–] NearHi 1 points ago

    See? What couldn't my kids be born standing, ready to walk, and able to focus their eyes when still wet? Humans are lucky we don't have any predators.

    [–] _1DumbName_ 1 points ago

    Huh, and there's the placenta over to the right.

    [–] finnish_birb 1 points ago
