These Creatures In The Wild Don’t Abide By Gender Roles

An easy way to stir the pot with people is to bring up gender roles. Many believe that gender is fluid, and one should not get confined to the role given at birth. The argument has many truths and valid points. Animals also provide a reason to understand this stance that individuals take to heart. Did you know that there are animals that change from male to female naturally? Read through to find out how animals and insects break the gender norms. You’d be surprised to see how similar these creatures are to humans and what we can learn from them.

Clownfish Have Mastered The System

These underwater creatures are all born as males, but things get interesting as their lives go on. A female fish leads the clownfish, but how is this possible if they’re all born male?AFP_IW1H1


Whenever the lead female fish dies, the next biggest male then becomes a female and takes over. Clownfish is one of the few species that are capable of changing genders and are led by the female.

Komodo Don’t Need A Man



Some women of the world might be able to relate to the female Komodo dragon more than they think. This female lizard is capable of laying eggs and creating offspring without a male mate. There is no exact number on how many raise their children without a male present, but we imagine they’re out there.

There are many single women who take care of their children every day without a father present. Of course, having both parents available is the best option, but one should never feel they need their counterpart. These dragons are doing just fine.

The Jacanas Reverse Roles

The male jacanas are the best fathers of any tropical bird. While the females get to relax a bit more, the males incubate the eggs and raise their offspring. Meanwhile, the female jacanas are far from nurturing.

Not only are the female jacanas not tending to the little ones, but they travel off and mate with dozens of other males. Along the process, the female jacanas also kill rival ladybirds. It’s considered flattering, but let’s hope the little ones don’t know what mom is up to.

Something humans don’t see much of is the female being bigger than the male. Guys naturally dwarf women with some exceptions around the world. That is not the case for the praying mantis.

The male mantis is often way smaller than the female mantis. This trait leaves the male with a sense of insecurity because it allows the female mantis to eat their mate’s heads after they do the deed. It isn’t all the time, but more often than not.

Watch Where You Hatch The Bearded Dragon

The bearded dragon is another animal capable of switching genders. Unlike the clownfish, these reptiles change while in the egg. This only happens if the temperature is warm enough during egg incubation. The males turn into females, but not so cleanly.

While they maintain male genetics, they go about their lives acting like females and reproduce like them. They even lay double the number of eggs as the typical female. And thanks to the rising global temperatures, the sex reversal is happening more often.

These Pets With Snapchat Filters Will Brighten Your Day

Snapchat has grown to become the fourth most popular social media platform out there (Facebook is number one, with Instagram and Pinterest second and third.) The app has 187 million daily users, as of February 2018, and is borderline addicting. When Snapchat was initially created, researchers thought that it would mostly be used for sexting, as the content disappears after a set time. But, that has not been the case. Many users go straight to Snapchat to get a good laugh, and once we learned the filters work on pets’ faces, we just had to take advantage of it. Here’s what happens when you apply a Snapchat filter to a cat or dog!

Small Face No Problem

This cat just had an attitude adjustment. Its big mouth got reduced to the size of a fingernail. The eyes are smaller than pennies. The filter used on this cat is remarkable because it actually looks realistic- in a way. You look at it once, then again, then closer… it doesn’t get old.bear pinterest.jpg

The Alien Cat

This cat looks like it is from another world. It’s true that cats sometimes have irregularly shaped eyes, but nothing on this scale. This little one must have fled the scene in the Area 51 crash and ended up becoming a pet. The big eye filter is a classic for sure.

Toasted Cat

Cat breading is a thing, and don’t even start thinking about why. In fact, it got so popular to cut a hole in a piece of bread and put it on your cat that Snapchat produced a bread filter, so you can cat bread anytime. And yes, people definitely do.

Here Comes The Pain

This dog is ready to burn some fat. She’s been waiting to get this core workout in so she can get rid her unwanted love handles. The pink headband compliments her eyes. The matching pink dumbbell is a nice accessory as well. The other dogs better watch out when they see her.

Do You Smell Bacon?

This little piggie got turned into a Snapchat filter. What you’re seeing is a puppy with the cutest pig filter ever. It even made the puppy’s eyes more adorable. We hope that when the owner showed this image to the puppy it was appreciated and he or she didn’t lick the screen.

The Harmless Cat

Here we have one of the cutest cats on this list. Even after you take away the filter, this cat still is as adorable as they come. The little glasses and bow combo is one for the ages. It looks like she is about to go to a beauty pageant for cats.

A classic move is putting the dog filter on your cat. The cat doesn’t know what’s going on, so it makes it a little funnier. But we’re sure that if the cat knew that it transformed into its rival animal, it would be a problem.

The Eyes Say It All

If dogs had eyes this big, we don’t think they would be such a favorite pet. When it’s just for a filter, then it is acceptable. This little guy looks like he’s rolling his eyes after his owner told him to fetch the ball. Don’t quote us but that could be the case.
