    Question Missing whisker - ubuntu 20.04 wallpaper.

    Hi Guys,

    Fossa has 6 whiskers on the left side and only 5 on the right one. It doesn't look good for me.

    What do you think about that?

    Does it really? It took me a while to work out what you were talking about. For being observant you win a prize. But you have to work out what the prize is and how to claim it and the closing date was yesterday. It makes I laugh.

    Regards.

    I have cats in real life and sometimes they lose a whisker so maybe it was done on purpose.

    May be it' has some kind of artistic reason...

    For totally randomness (almost,) Here's a pictire of my kitten. Though I didn't counted its whiskers.

    A Cryptoprocta ferox -- a relative of the mongoose and not a cat -- always has an uneven number of whiskers right to left. This helps in prey detection, in much the same way as an owl's uneven position of the ears from side to side allows it to better distinguish direction and distance of the sounds created by small animals.

    Or not. Maybe.

    But the aliens really did take me away for a night or two back in '73. Seriously.

    It's X-files all over again. But why do they have so big heads compared to their body? In theory their neck would break.

    Yes, that's true.

    All pictures I seen show that there is much more then 5 or 6 and I didn't check any article.
    If that's a fact my feelings are less important and all is perfect.

    Thanks for great answer.

    Hmm, maybe the other whisker is behind one other whisker?
