After dinner


Do we really need parasites?

Wolves prey on the sick and injured. What would happen to wolves if deer stopped getting sick?

Deer would be harder to catch. Fewer hunts would be successful. More energy expended per kill. I guess there would be fewer wolves and more deer.

And they wouldn't taste as good, because when an animal's sick or limping, it's like they have this big sign saying “Me! You want me! Come eat me, I'm extra delicious!”

Okay, too much information.
