Animals are sources of endless fascination.

Particularly in their natural habitat.

But while most people like to admire animals from afar, others like to know more about what goes on when they're not being watched.

And more often than not, what they find is shocking, to say the least.

Redditor Shoggy was eager to learn the most out there, unbelievable facts people have learned about various animals, leading them to ask:

What are some f**ked up animal facts?

Stealth killers.

"A polar bear will calmly stalk up to you and start eating you alive without roaring or charging."

"Like how you would just walk across the kitchen to pick up an apple and start eating while going about your day."

"No drama, no theatrics, just murder."- Malphos101.

One way to blow off a date.

"Female dragonflies fake their deaths and crash to the ground and play dead when stalked by an unwelcome lover."- SuvenPan.

Body and soul

"Put simplistically, male angler fish bite into and get absorbed by the female during mating."-tagibear.

They call them "killer whales" for a reason.

"Orcas are one of the very few apex predators of the ocean."

"They’ll actually hunt great white sharks, rip them open and eat their livers (and sometimes heart) as a sort of ocean delicacy."- TheRestForTheWicked.

"Killer whales will slap a seal into the air resulting in them dying from the fall just because."

"Not to get food or defense, but just because they’re bored."- FuzzyRoach642.

Something to keep in mind before kissing...

"Lobsters pee out of their faces."- NotACyclopsHonest.

Something that weird looking can't be real.

"The Royal Society thought that a taxidermied platypus was a prank when they saw the first one."

"Apparently naturalists would frequently send each other frankenstein'd abominations for goofs."- bjanas.

Speedy emasculation

"Camels have specially evolved canine teeth for the express purpose of biting off balls of other male camels- OneNastyJaguar.

"Let's get ready to rumble!"

"In Tasmanian Devil mating season, the male has to beat the female into submission."

If he fails, the female beats the male up."- bugboyjohnny.

A very brief time on this earth

"The honeybees you see in your yard are in the last 2 to 3 weeks of their lives."- Fit-Environment-8140.

Fascinating facts indeed.

Though, after learning some of these facts, best to behold these creatures within the safety of a zoo or aquarium.

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"

Those who are truly superstitious have trouble shaking off customs which others might find somewhat silly.

These include holding your breath when passing a cemetery, throwing salt over your shoulder after spilling it, or not stepping on cracks for fear of breaking their mother's backs.

But even though it has been irrefutably proven that there is absolutely no validity to these superstitions, these same people will likely never stop performing these customs.

Nor will some others ever stop believing myths and hoaxes which have likewise proven to be one-hundred percent false.

Redditor Jimbo_Jigs was curious to learn the things people will never stop believing, despite ample evidence to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What is proven to be a hoax but people still believe it to be true?"
