Horses have top and bottom

...and one particular asshole liked to bite little kids and give them a lifelong fear of horses

Fuck you Frank

I have a lifelong fear of horses after getting bucked off, toe stomped, and kicked. My mom just had to have her horses.

My aunt got thrown by her own horse, my other aunt was riding next to her and swears there was absolutely nothing there to spook the horse and cause it to throw her

The fall broke her neck in 3 places and her arm

She had to wear a halo for months,have surgeries, and go to physical therapy for over a year after that

And these are people who grew up riding horses as a primary means of transportation

If that can happen to them, then what hope do I have?

I used to think animals like horses are safe because they dont have weapons like claws or sharp teeth, but when an animal is that big, it is the weapon.

Maybe that's why their life expectancy was much lower than ours is now. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Yes. I know that for sure. I have the same fear.

Some kid probably told the farmer to name him Frank and it stuck so now he hates kids.

Wow, okay, I'm surprised it took me this long to learn this, but I guess that finally explains the nagging feeling that something was off which I'd occasionally feel when I saw images of cow or deer skulls. Looking at images now I feel pretty dumb that it never registered with me that there are no (upper) incisors.

I was pretty shocked when I learned. I was watching Victorian Farm on Prime, and they inspected a ram. And dropped that little tidbit, and it kind of fucked my brain up a little bit.

It's like the rectangular pupils thing all over again!

I mean, you think that's weird.

I love tapirs.

Go look up their smiles. Believe me, it's worst when they have human teeth.

Go Google Image search "Baby Tapir"

Then Google Image search "Tapir Smiling"

And your "dental pad" can go suck it.

gmnitsua OP t1_ixkci2i wrote

That's pretty disturbing.

It would seem, but it's still a tapir. As adults they human-like teeth.

But they are still amazing little mammals who mean no harm to no one.

They just have human teeth. Which is un-avoidably weird.

Tapirs can be hundreds of pounds and one literally ripped a womanโ€™s arm off a few years ago.

Generally they arenโ€™t aggressive, but they can definitely wreck someone if they want to.

Teeth are just fish scales that evolved to be on the inside. The bones In our arms and chest are the same as 400 million year old fish, same as the bastards that came up on land, doing push ups the whole way. Fkrs

Thanks I needed those pictures ๐Ÿ˜Š

Not for nothing, a tapir a day is a smile a day.

I live in Washington State. My introduction to Tapirs was baby Kudzu at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium.

I ken their teeth are weird. But they're so cute.

I raised cows and I didn't know this.

I swear I've seen cows with both rows of teeth.

gmnitsua OP t1_ixk9je2 wrote

I felt the same way. But you can tell from their skulls that they definitely don't have them.

This could be a new Mandela effect example.

BrokenEye3 t1_ixkaakf wrote

They do often look like they've got underbites. Maybe this is why.

Drone30389 t1_ixlk1ms wrote

I just went looking at "cows chewing" videos on youtube and only saw lower teeth and upper lip. It looks like their upper lip is hiding their upper teeth and our brains just filled in the blank.

Mind blown.

So... all of the cartoon cows, sheep, and giraffes smiling with teeth.. are drawn wrong.

I personally like to imagine they wear false teeth on their upper jaw.
