Our combatants today have two different approaches to team work. #WarGoose enjoys relaxing spa days with snacks, while #TeamArthropod involves a hot & heavy race for dead bodies. #2019MMM
Team #WarGoose =
1. Warthogs-sturdy & pugnacious, armed with sharp gnashing tusks + an inclination to use them against anyone with a taste for pork.
2. Banded mongoose- much smaller, social, death to smol crunchy things. #2019MMM
