Many do under unusual conditions, so I was right.
/kɒp.rə.ˈfeɪ.dʒi.ə/ or coprophagy is the consumption of feces, from the Greek κόπρος copros, "feces" and φαγεῖν phagein, "to
eat". Many animal species practice coprophagia as a matter of course; other species do not normally consume feces but may do so under unusual
conditions. Coprophagy refers to many kinds of feces eating including eating feces of other species (heterospecifics),of other individuals
(allocoprophagy), or its own (autocoprophagy), those once deposited or taken directly from the anus.The piece I provided says 'Many animal
species practice coprophagia as a matter of course; other species do not normally consume feces but may do so under unusual conditions.'
Again showing you read what you want to see and are more than prepared to lie when you cannot
If you had bothered to read the whole article you would have found out what those unusual conditions were but instead you chose dishonesty and
ignorance just like you did all those times before, in fact just like you do every time
Yep. My ex-room mate had a chocolate lab that often ate his own feces. This was despite the fact that the dog was fed extremely well, given treats
daily and also was spoiled by the owner and given leftover human food after dinner. The dog was an eating machine, even when it came to his own
doodoo. That's hands down proof that creatures experiment with their diets That's just a fact of reality. Many creatures don't think on the same
level as humans, but they aren't stupid and certainly don't only experiment out of desperation.
My cat eats the same food every day in abundance (she's a grazer, so her bowl always has some food in it) and is given the occasional treats once a
week or so. Despite that she still experiments eating plants and grass outside and inside. I had to get rid of some of my plants because they were
toxic to cats and she would attempt to eat them.
Those are 2 examples of well fed animals, experimenting with their diet regardless of the abundance of food.
Tooth is an obvious troll. He uses warped logic and reasoning to make arguments against evolution, then when he's proven wrong he claims the goal
posts are being moved, which is absurd. People are debunking his faulty logic, they aren't changing the definition of evolution. Evolution has
always been defined as genetic mutations sorted by natural selection, both of which are 100% proven observable measurable phenomena. His best
argument against that is "well I've never seen an ape turn into a human, so it must be false!" What he doesn't realize is that the goal posts are
very much being moved, but he is the one guilty of it. I doubt he even understands what that analogy means. Fun times.
