And the person is spraying salt or something over top.. like if the person is gonna eat it!!! Beurk! Then down corner its a squid but alive? How can you eat something this way??? Sooo disturbed 😠

  2. Medical research doesn't kill them. Their blood is harvested to test vaccine batches, and they're sent on their merry way afterwards.

  3. Asians eat everything that lives and always say it has some mythical benefit or that it is an aphrodisiac to make their small peckers rise which is bull shit, they are going to cause some animals to go extinct.

  4. It is chinese and thai and malaysia's fault for the extinct animals #stopeatingrareanimals

  5. maybe we leave the thing that's been around for like ever alone and not eat it, even more so if it doesn't taste very good. also it can poison you so yeah maybe not a good idea to make it a dish.
    just a hunch tho.

  6. they are being wiped out not from people eating them, its pharmaceutical companies that are fishing all of them out.

  7. I can vouch that Malaysians don't really eat it. Its a Thai thing. If its in Malaysia, it was brought from the country up north
