    Most fish in the big public aquariums still aren't... breeders have been working hard though, the recent years have been seeing many breakthroughs with marine fish of all kinds.

    I agree ! And finally, a proof that not only bulls will be produced by artificial insemination ... Wonderful.

    In addition, the production of elephants, rhinos and generally animals is not so stressful thanks to artificial insemination, since the courtship display, the mating foreplay, which is associated with an enormous incalculable risk for the cows, especially for rhinos, and the mating itself omitted.

    If the females could now be bothered by the annoying, high-risk birth and the time-consuming rearing, as well as the modern breeding management of zoo animals would be perfect. At least until the cloning is perfected. Who actually needs natural reproduction? No one in the US anymore.

    Attention-that was irony ..

    @Brum.

    Nope, it's defenitely irony :

    The word irony comes from ancient Greek (eirōneía) and means dissimulation, feigned ignorance. Irony is one of the stylistic devices and is used to make spoken or written effective. For this, the opposite is said of what is actually meant.

    Irony therefore runs indirectly and must be decrypted by the other person (listener or reader) in order to understand the meaning behind it. If the other person does not recognize the irony in the statement, this changes their overall meaning. In general, the context or the situation becomes clear when irony is used in a statement. People who use irony are called ironists.

    Irony example:

    When someone happens a mishap: "That made you great again!"

    If someone deliberately stupidly asks, "I did not know that!"

    The word sarcasm comes from the ancient Greek verb sarkázein and can be translated as tearing, taunting. The term refers to acrimonious mockery and mockery with which the speaker or writer encounters his counterpart. Sarcastic statements can be formulated directly (openly) and indirectly (encrypted), but should always mock the listener or reader. Sarcasm is spiteful and wants to hurt.
    Sarcasm Examples:

    "The dress was probably not in your size?"

    "If you are looking for a good, discerning and beautiful woman, you are looking for not one but three." (Oscar Wilde)


    It is often believed that irony is a weakened form of sarcasm. However, hidden behind the sarcasm is a specific intention (intention) that the speaker / writer pursues. While irony is just the way in which something is said.

    Irony is expressed by the opposite, while sarcasm can be used as both an open and a covert attack. The covert attack is often obscured by means of contrary statements, whereby sarcasm uses the stylistic device irony to express something. For this reason, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between irony and sarcasm.
