Nature Series: Natural predators- part 2

The natural predator of the
Polystyrenus beanbagballus is Felis catus (also known as the domestic cat).

The feline will toy with its prey until one brave victim may valiently attempt to cripple its attacker
by trying to crawl into the nasal cavities.

While mortality figures are high,
the sheer breeding capacity of the Polystyrenus baenbagballus species
means that their numbers will never be eradicated.

Eventually the cat will become bored (or full.
Yes, even cats can be silly enough to eat bean bag balls)
and will give up to search for another, easy to catch but significantly more palatable, prey,
like, say, a finger bun.

My husband just came in from the other room to see what I was snorting with laughter about.
Thanks for that laugh.

Love love love! especially the nostril shot. I'm going to show my little girl in the morning. She's a little bit cat obsessed!
