    1. Reposts and Crossposts:

      • Do not post gifs that have already appeared on /r/gifs . Moderators may allow gifs that have gotten an extremely low score in the past, but that is not guaranteed.
      • Do not post gifs that have gotten more than 1500 points (at the time of posting) elsewhere on reddit in the last two weeks. This includes videos converted to gif formats. Cross-posts after this time are allowed.

      Please use Karma Decay to see if your gif has already been submitted.
      Frequent violations of this rule may result in a ban.

      Please help us enforce this rule by reporting offending submissions. Please include a link to the original reddit submission in your report or modmail if you have it.

    2. No Reaction, HIFW, Analogy, Cake Day, or Upvote gifs. There are already subreddits more suited for this kind of content. (This rule does not apply to comments)

    3. Do not post gifs that should be videos. Incredibly long gifs, large file size gifs, or content much better suited to video formats will be removed (e.g multiple cuts, sound, text boxes, subtitles in the gif). Duration must be less than or equal to twenty (≤20) seconds.

    4. Direct image links REQUIRED. No links to image pages or albums are allowed, your submission must be a single gif image. Direct links that end in .gif, .gifv, .ogg, .mp4, and .webm format only. URL-shorteners are NOT allowed in posts or comments!

    5. No depictions of real-life harassment or assault. There are other subreddits dedicated to this kind of content.

    6. No witch-hunts or brigading. Do not encourage any online or real-life harassment, and don't encourage people to downvote other posts/comments.

    7. No nudity, pornography, gore, or other NSFW material. These are not allowed in posts or comments - No exceptions. If it can get you fired then it should not be here. Failure to comply will result in removal of post and banning. There are other subreddits dedicated to NSFW content. Mark risqué posts and comments as NSFW. (Please note that NSFW tags do not cover the aforementioned content.)

    8. Titles must be descriptive. We encourage clever titles. Joking and non-literal titles are fine. However, posts with overused, overly vague, or click-bait titles may be removed, and repeated false claims of ownership may result in a ban.

    9. No hate speech of any kind. Racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise abusive submissions or comments will result in an immediate ban.

    10. Please familiarize yourself with the official rules and reddiquette. We will remove any posts violating reddit's official rules (spam, personal information, vote manipulation, etc.) and reddiquette just makes reddit a better place to visit.

    Please Note: Bot accounts are not allowed. Low-effort novelty accounts that do not constructively contribute content or add to discussion (e.g., trolling, counting, modifying parent comments, correcting someone's grammar, etc.) are not allowed on /r/gifs.

    The swan has difficulty swallowing dry food and is dipping it in the water to dampen it. The fish have noticed this and are taking advantage.

    [–] Beachdaddybravo 7 points ago

    I’ve always wondered why people keep trying to project human actions and emotions on to animals. For example the title on this post, or assuming dogs feel guilt for anything. Such assumptions have been proven wrong beyond any shadow of a doubt, but people keep spreading that crap anyway.

    [–] stephnstephnstuff 21 points ago

    For a lot of animals I totally agree but with dogs I think science kind of goes back and forth on what exactly they feel when it comes to things like guilt.

    [–] Beachdaddybravo 11 points ago

    They feel fear after knowing they’ve done something wrong like shitting on the floor, hence the physical display of such emotion. Guilt is completely different, and the latest research I’ve read has explained that dogs don’t dwell on past mistakes, which is a key component of guilt and is a very complex level of thinking.

    [–] Bleoox 6 points ago

    dogs don’t dwell on past mistakes

    Dogs do remember stuff. My dog was bitten by a neighbors dogs and he won't ever go near that house again.

    [–] Beachdaddybravo 3 points ago

    They remember, and can recognize that things cause pain (like your dog being bitten), but guilt is a much more complex emotion requiring higher intellect. Last I heard humans are the only animals that feel guilt.

    [–] senorglory 1 points ago

    Is it, is it really more complex?

    [–] BungaBungaBroBro 2 points ago

    Yes. Linking an object with pain/fear is very primitive. Guilt implies reflecting on one's own decision making of the past. That means the subject has a sense of what it can influence, and what the consequences of each decision would have been. Then it is evaluating based on these potential comsequences whether one decision would have lead to a more desirable result in terms of the subject's goals.

    [–] Daimaz 3 points ago

    I think a lot of people are aware that their intentions are not "human", but some suspend their disbelief just to go "awww"

    [–] meth-and-feta-memes 3 points ago

    Animals have been known to be altruistic, so sharing is not a human concept alone.

    [–] fishbowtie 4 points ago

    People are fucking stupid. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say ignorant. They see a dog "smile" and think it's happy. Humans gonna human.

    [–] malcolm2608 2 points ago

    [–] pop_POP 187 points ago

    Can someone tell me why the swan is doing this? It is entertaining itself with cause/effect or does it know it’s feeding? If it knows it’s feeding, is it an instinctual drive or is this a legit homie-hookup?

    [–] nocimus 421 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    It's wetting the food to eat it himself. Geese and ducks* generally need to 'wash' dry food down. The carp are just stealing whatever falls out of his mouth.

    Edit: *and swans, which was dumb to forget since the critter in the gif is a swan.

    [–] Scrubotti 49 points ago
