  1. Before mating, the female giraffe will first urinate in the male’s mouth.” – There’s really no way to unknow that now, is there?

  2. Is the cannibal fact a past fact- or present? I’m still wrapping my head around the fact people eat people in the 21st century?! 😳😱 maybe a little sheltered and naive I guess πŸ˜•

  3. There are approximately 1600 Amarekaire left in South-East Peru, though a portion of that number consists of people from the Huachipaeri tribe to which the Amarekaire are closely ethnically related. These tribes have been observed by Europeans to indulge in cannibalism since at least 1721, although there might be earlier sources. As of today there is no such thing going on.

    The present tense is used here to describe a permanent state of affairs regarding the culture of the Amarekaire tribe. The fact that these recipes originated in their culture however does not mean they practise cannibalism today. A dozen or so ways to kill an ox are mentioned in the Old Testament; now, this does not make Christians avid ox butchers – although you do hear odd things about Arkansas.
