Animals That Evolution Has Screwed Over The Most

Life ain’t fair

Whether you believe it or not, evolution is an incredible part of life that has shaped the world as we know it. On the one hand, we can’t complain about this amazing process, since it put humans on the top of the food chain, gave us opposable thumbs, and advanced our appearance to look nothing like the hobbit species that lived approximately 18,000 years ago. On the other hand, we can’t fly and our heads hurt if we eat ice cream too fast.

Relatively speaking, evolution has been extremely kind to us homosapiens and kind of a dick to other species. Redditors were asked “What animal did evolution f**k over the hardest?” and these were their answers.

Horses. Gotta throw up? Too bad. You’re dead now. (demonstar55)

Their esophagus is designed so they can’t. So, to relieve the stomach pains, horses will kick their stomachs or lay down and try to roll, which is usually laying on their backs and twisting around. If someone doesn’t stop them they can seriously mess up their intestines, and if that happens then the kindest thing to do is euthanize them. (elfmaiden687)

Hawaii has a flightless housefly. Seems pretty pitiful. (Sanhael)

Get the spray, we have housewalks again! (I_PEE_WITH_THAT)
