Regardless of your ranking in the greater food chain o’ life, it can be a full time job to figure out the difference between friends, enemies and frenemies.
In other words, some beings always want to eat you.
Some never do.
And some are only interested if someone tastier isn’t available.
When in doubt – if the being in question looks even the slightest bit peckish – you want to promptly pop them into the frenemies category and call it a day.
(Ergo, there is no room for “benefit of a doubt” when it comes to who’s getting lunch versus who’s being lunch.)
But when you go through this process, you also need to keep your mind and heart open. Because you may be in for a few surprises.
Take the large shell-less beings, for example. They are large – predator-sized if you do say so yourself. They frequently forget to look before they stomp.
And they constantly look hungry.
Yet you have discovered that some of them – and one in particular – can make very good friends!
