Yeah, it's crazy and disturbing. There are videos of Killer Whales (Orcas) killing for fun then leaving the carcass.
On one video I saw, they were actually volleying a seal back and forth.

They don't kill for sport, they'll kill to protect or guard their territory, granted they may not eat what they've killed, but they sure don't do it for the fun of it. :/ Didn't the Lions of "Ghost..." eat some of the people?

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour.

If you're only burning 150 calories an hour, you're obviously not putting in enough effort.


And so it's not just a response, I will include an interesting tidbit myself.

"Ants stretch when they wake up and they also appear to yawn in a human like manner before taking up the tasks of the day."

I have to agree with that.
