The cloaca is not an anus. It is a distinct orifice. "Anal" implies "anus".

So, I would argue that no bird sex is anal or vaginal. It's all cloacal.

You're acting like they don't already know and ignore it because they find it way more fun to slap a three foot horsecock on a bird.

That's only going in the corresponding orifice.

I love that video. I was hoping it would be that when I clicked the link.

Did you know he is making videos again?


lightknight7777 t1_ja4gc18 wrote

New ones? That's great news, thank you!


GodwynDi t1_ja69k3p wrote

Yep! Completely new ones been up on YouTube. Resumed again past year or so. Maybe longer. Time flies.


lightknight7777 t1_ja4955a wrote

Have you seen a duck penis? It's a cork screw. I'm not sure they can have any sex besides in the designated orifice.

42 second mark. I'm sorry, but you asked:

I figured from the context of the OPs statement that they are only discussing the cloacal subset. Otherwise their comment totally falls apart.


Thompseanson7 t1_ja49vwt wrote

Trust Ik what a ducks penis looks like, and ducks are still birds lol. It’s also just a silly little shower thought

Have you ever noticed ducks are only bird that doesn’t run away from humans?

That's correct. I just figured with the context of what the OP was saying that they were only talking about the cloacal subset.

That kind of bird uses a different system:

Encrease power


DrInsomnia t1_ja4cluu wrote

This is not true. From their earliest embryological development, animals have mouth and anal openings. It's representative of the tube-like critters from which we first evolved. In some animals other orifices develop, but mouth and anus are generally present unless secondarily lost. The cloaca is an anus with additional functions, which is not uncommon in the animal kingdom.


lightknight7777 t1_ja4ed7f wrote

It's the tissue from all 3 tracks. In no way can you just claim It's the anus or the vagina or the urinary tract. It is distinct from any of the three it is a merging of. A cloaca is not an anus.

That's why there's a distinct term from anus for it.


DrInsomnia t1_ja4ifqr wrote

There's a distinct term for it because it serves more than one function. But it developmentally starts as the anal opening, and continues to serve as the anus in an adult. This is really all semantics, but from a developmental biology standpoint it is an anus that has acquired other functionality.

Edit to add, from the Wiki link: "In deuterostomes, the original dent becomes the anus, while the gut eventually tunnels through the embryo until it reaches the other side, forming an opening that becomes the mouth."

Vertebrates are deuterostomes. In bird development, that original "anus" becomes the cloaca.


lightknight7777 t1_ja4iida wrote

That doesn't make it an anus. It's not.

Semantics is what words mean. Of course it's semantics.


DrInsomnia t1_ja4j8ck wrote

Yes. And a cloaca is an anus that has taken on additional functionality in some groups. In fact, in mammals the original mammalian ancestor likely had a cloaca, which split into separate openings (in some derived groups). But embryologically it all starts with the anus.

r/showerthoughts isn't little epiphanies so much as morons posting things they think sound deep, but take about 15 seconds for others to point out are idiotic and wrong.

by the way, fellow mammals: kangaroos and opossums have the same plumbing.. i.e., they too, have cochleas

DrInsomnia t1_ja4d2fr wrote

They do have cochleas (all mammals do). But birds don't.

>they too, have cochleas

And that's why you never hear them coming


quokkabee t1_ja46r2w wrote

Since kangaroos, opossums, and birds all have cochleas, this is technically correct. The best kind of correct.


HarryBaughl t1_ja44q78 wrote

We talking about marsupial kangaroos or mammal kangaroos?


FooBarU2 t1_ja4qnxl wrote

FYI, and as I am sure you know, mammals that have the dual plumbing ports (for liquid and solids... #1 and #2 respectively LOL) are called placental mammals.

And marsupial is the other referenced my my post along with odd monotremes which are how duck billed platypuses are categorized.


HarryBaughl t1_ja506ov wrote

Interesting. I always thought that mammals and marsupials were different because of the lack of mammaries.

Isn’t showerthoughts supposed to capture the strange and imperfect things we spontaneously think about in the shower?

Yeah, but usually it's about realizations of said strange things and imperfections. Not just making up something in your head and saying it out loud.
