Coffee plant: *evolves caffeine* Safe at last
E one-for-all-plus-ultra
the fact that we can't drink sea water even tho
its the most common type of water just bc ¡ts
3% salt yet we can safely consume multiple
forms of literal poison and even benefit from
doing so just blows my fucking mind
Peppers: Now that I have capsaicin, no mammal
will eat me! ONLY BIRDS. THE BIRDS WILL
SPREAD MY SEEDS.
Humans: oh my god this burns so good

    • Well, those “poisons” did what they were supposed to. They ensured the survival of their species, because we will continue to plant and raise them for consumption for the foreseeable future.

    • Many mushroom species have psilocybin which suppresses the amount of seratonin that can reach seratonin receptors. In insects, this means that they will fail to eat anything with psilocybin in it. It allows mushrooms to compete with them quite well.
