doth ancient Egiptian gods had animal like heads?...Maybe they were ...animals too.

Many of them, but not all of them (e.g. Imesty)

They were not "true" animals because they were often shown to have the body of a human i.e. they had the abilty to be animals but they weren't stuck as animals, which they would be if they were "true" animals.

Ver well! You wrote something very important in my opinion.
Now time for conlusions.
What conclusions can you draw from your simple observation? Rolling Eyes

Conclusion: They were not animals in the normal sense of the word. A human body with the head of an animal is not normally classed as an "animal" and besides these are gods we're talking about - mythical entities (i.e. they're beyond anything mortal if you believe such things).

This is way off topic, and actually not for this forum, but do crocodiles have a way to communicate? I’ve done some research on them, and never read something about it. I know baby crock’s make a kind of squirting sound to let their mother know where they are. But I mean grown up crocks.

Oh, what the heck: the question is

How do crocodiles communicate?

Here's the answer, via the Florida Museum of Natural History.

Crocodiles communicate by barking and are known to have four different calls. Examples of these calls are:

The distress call, mostly used by younger animals is a high-pitched call that alerts other crocodiles in case of imminent danger or an animal being attacked.

The threat call is a hissing sound that has also been described as a coughing noise.

There is a hatching call that females make when breeding to alert the other crocodiles about the fact that she has placed eggs in her nest.

The courtship call lets other animals know that a certain animal is ready for mating and breeding.


You can hear some of these sounds at the Crocodilian Communications website at the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida.
Unfortunately, they don't have sounds for the Crocodylus niloticus, Nile crocodile, but I can assure you having been on the Nile when adult crocs were grouped together on sandbanks, they DO make quite a bit of noise, which can be quite, uhm, disturbing.

HTH.

What in common have crocodiles and sphinx? Why no warning from moderator? Doth communication of crocodiles is spam in this thread. Idea

Sad

Never heard of "change of subject" Cairo7? You always could try to change it back!

C7, we are discussing broad themes here on E.D., and sometimes we ask a certain question in a certain tread. I’m aware that it is better to start a new tread, and when necessary I do so. The administrator Kevin and moderators, like Anneke are following all off our conversations, and if they think we go too far they will interfere.

But if you may post something like
“Very well! You wrote something very important in my opinion.
Now time for conlusions.
What conclusions can you draw from your simple observation?”

Which is in my eyes very disrespectful to another member here, I guess I may ask something about crocodiles, I posted this question on the remark of our esteemed member Toth, who was joking around again, “Like talking crocodiles?” And thanks to Neseret, we all learned something more.
