Are animals physically so divers?
I don't get it, take 100 female humans, at a healthy breeding age, and look at how fucking different they all appear. Then take 100 ducks from the same lake of the same specie and see how they appear like carbon copies.

To other ducks, do they seem drastically different from duck to duck but not to us humans, much like how a white person sees less diversity in his black fellow chums? I don't get it mang, please help

I used to view things this way when I was 14 when it was first explained to me, but now the way I view the world is so drastically different that I'm just not able to explain it to you at all.

I know exactly what you are talking about, but I just no longer see things like this after it was explained to me and my brain matured. I wish I could take a time machine back to when I viewed the world the way you did so I could better explain why ducks *seem* to appear identical while humans do not.

Maybe a better fellow than can explain it to you and you wont have to think this way for the rest of your life. Life's much better when you've grown out of seeing things like this.

If you got to know ducks as well as you knew humans, you'd be able to tell them apart. Same is true of race; take an Asian kid who was orphaned and raised in a white society, all Asians will look alike to them. Until they get to know them.
Farmers can tell their cows apart. Girls can tell horses apart. You'd recognise your pet in a line up of the same species of pet.
It's just a question of learning to pick out details which seem obvious after a while.

It really depends on the animal

Northern Elephant Seals, for instance, went through such a tight population bottleneck that all of the genes on the Y chromosome of the species are all dominant, and the mt of two haplogroups. Cheetahs are even worse in this regard, and while 91% similar to a housecat in mtdna, a population bottleneck during the last glacial maximum fucked them up so hard that chromosomal variations among cheetahs are about the size of one family; this inbreeding has led to real survival problems, such as the fact only 18% of cheetah sperm are viable.

Now if you look at humans the opposite is in effect. We have hundreds of documented haplogroups and dozens of mtdna lineages. Human genetic diversity heavily influenced by the fact that early sapiens interbred with early hominids such as neanderthals and erectus. As such you have weird things like basques who have weirdo genes that make them immune to AIDS. There are quite a few phenotypes among humans and this is reinforced by post hunter gatherer civilizations in which traits other than physical fitness for hunting could continue to be expressed (for better or worse)

If you take into account the fact that humans no longer need very much of any physical fitness (this instead becoming a lifestyle choice), the wide variety of diets available to people in developed countries, etc. in addition to the genetic diversity found among humans, then maybe we are just more varied than ducks, which 1. Have to perform like a duck to their utmost in order to not die 2. breed via collective rape rather than any selection on part of the females

Yeah, No one's arguing with that. Some people might say that it's because we're humans dealing with humans all day we know them better and spot the small differences.

But I guess you know the truth.

It's duck magic. Ducks can see more of reality than other beings and so can read into one another's true being. As such they find it easy to tell each other apart. Magpies for example can identify different humans and treat them accordingly but they can't recognise each other. Fucking birds.

If it's true that humans have more diversity, a duck should be able to distinguish humans better than ducks too.

It's not that humans are more diverse, it's that humans are very good at noticing differences between humans.
Humans who suffer damage to certain parts of the brain may lose this ability.

Both of these species have far greater genetic variation than humans.
If there was a line up of 10 of one species, would you be able to tell them apart?

Greater genetic diversity within a species does not necessarily mean greater variation in things humans use to tell a species apart.

I'll leave the speculation up to you.

As it stands, my argument is that there is no adequate equivalency when discussing the phenotypic variation among humans and the phenotypic variation seen in the rest of the animal kingdom. I think this has to do with trends in the evolutions of animals, and that it would be impossible to take physical characteristics that we'd classify as different and expect that model to fit from species to species let alone between different animal kingdoms.
I am not going to prove that a human cannot tell the physical differences from one duck to another, but that those differences are limited compared to the models that we naturally and instinctually have for perceiving the physical differences among our own kind.

I think that we do have a much greater diversity of phenotype, as applied to models that we can perceive, than do perhaps all other animals on the planet.

OP is generally correct that duck of the same species do look much more like copies of each other than do humans look to other humans. Conversely, humans will look much more individually different from each other than will different individuals of the same species appear to humans. Feel free to summarize all this in a sentence as an exercise in common sense. This is truly bedrock at this point and I now regret every minute of it.

I think I know why OP. It's because our monkey brains are wired to know monkey stuff, other monkeys, things like that. Duck brains probably see us all as weird lumbering monkey people, and have a hard time telling us apart. But with their glorious and efficient duck brains, they can look at other ducks and tell who is who.

Alternatively, maybe that is not the case. Humans are super social animals. Far more social than ducks, and we have more hierarchies and gossip involved in our lives. Maybe even ducks don't give a shit about the differences between themselves, because they aren't social. And maybe their brains aren't wired that way.

There. Now that we've answered that, we can all go back to posting trannies, the only thing /b/ was ever created for

Very few animals are as dependent on visual cues the same way that humans are. They are identifiably diverse in ways that are detectable by themselves as a species but not necessarily detectable by humans.

there is research that says people of different races have trouble telling one another apart, we're stupid monkeys who are racist

if he was saying that people from different races look homogeneous, i don't think he was implying that it was right, or that we do it on purpose

also, lots of trannies fuck harder than you do, just saying

false, incorrect. incorrect and false and false and incorrect

ducks rely on extremely less visual cues and physical perceptions because of how they evolved. besides understanding pheromones and differences between sexes, they DO NOT understand much differences between each other. YOU CAN FOOL A DUCK WITH A FAKE PLASTIC DUCK.
I'm seriously gonna fucking lose it.

This is all such common sense to me. A fucking duck would have a hard time picking his blood brother out of line up based solely on visual perception

Sounds like you have a PhD in physical duck perceptions.

of course I believe that but its not as homogenous as other species. Other species ARE visually homogenous while humans are NOT. Yes it is completely true that people of other races will look more homogenous but that's in degrees so completely small compared to ducks. This thread is about ducks and every other animal. I'm putting my foot down and making a blanket statement that indeed all other animals look fucking homogenous THATS FINAL

what you said isn't true though, look at dogs

all domesticated dogs, from pugs, to chihuahuas, to Labradors, the Great Danes, they are all one single species

that is not visual homogeneity

This is unfortunately true. I don't think it's genetic though. I think you're able to tell individuals apart that are of the same sort you grew up around. So if you grew up around asians you'll be good at differentiating between asians. If you grew up with blacks and whites, black mother white father for example, you'd be able to differentiate between both equally, assuming you hung out with your black side and white side of the family equal amounts.

That's not disagreeing with anything I was saying the entire time you blind twat. Feel free to spend the next 40 minutes looking up scientific terms to make it sound like you know what you're talking about when you reply to this.

One question though, do you think domesticated dogs can perceive their physical characteristics as well as we can?

Then why did you say it all in a combative tone? You're saying it took you a whole argument to get your thoughts together and another 40 minutes to type it out into two paragraphs? Christ you're stupid.

The post you are referring to was written quickly and painfully. Just because I see your response 40 minutes later doesn't mean it took me 40 minutes to write. By that logic it took you the same amount of time to two sentences. Christ you're stupid!
