Fish practice social distance, just for illustration


We know that social distance is one of useful methods to avoid spreading of diseases, especially in pandemic seasons.


Unfortunately, human seems have problems to practice this method in recent corona virus infection.


Surprisingly, animals have practiced social distance naturally to avoid diseases which may reduce their population or kill themselves.


Social distance are pursued by many animals, they are including:

- fish

- crabs

- lobsters

- frogs (toadpoles)

- mammals

- insects (ants)

- birds

How do animals know that their friend infected by diseases?


Important indicators of infected animals are (varied from one species to others):

- body of sicked animals emits certain chemical to their environment (into nature)

- infected animals produce urine which can be easily detected by healthy ones.


In respond, the healthy animals will stay away or keep their social distance from infected animals. They never close to each other.


Changing their behavior in addition to social distance is another way to avoid themselves to get sick and to stop spreading the diseases to their own community.


Why we as human do not want (less eager) to follow the animals or nature? What do you think?

  1. I think we have lost a lot of instincts because of instant gratification and self-entitlement from social media and that is contributing to us acting like idiots during this pandemic.

  5. Great information as always! I did know that about fish, as when one of Joe's fish is sick in his aquarium the others do stay away from them. We are a spoiled society and want to do what we want when we want to unfortunately. I lecture this to my Grandkids all the time!

  18. Interesting idea--I always thought the distancing among animals had to do with territory.
