  • I never watched a single video from this channel. WHY DO I KEEP GETTING RECOMMENDATIONS?

  • Can you make a video about all of the animals with a max stat or multiple

  • Hey, have you ever tought about doing a video on bacterias or something like that? After all, they were the first players!

  • the fastest animal is the bullet ant

  • What have is this?

  • This is why he takes 1-2 months to upload a vid, it’s so good and high quality

  • 6:42 Why is it so cute that cheetahs can’t roar

  • Are cone snails OP? They can one-shot pretty much anything with a vulnerable hide, and have a ranged harpoon attack with ludicrous toxicity, one of the best in the game.

  • I am finally ditching ISchats because of censorship and manipulation. I will look for your videos, channels and content on other platforms.


  • I once was a cheetah main. But then went to mantis main pls do a tier list on insects

  • I need a game base in this

  • a were overpowered marsupials .

  • 2:16 this apex reference made my day alone

  • Sometimes I like to imagine aliens watching these videos like "What da fok this is a game??"

  • 3:26

  • I remember one time me and some friends were playing a little game where u play as African animals, one of us was a cheetah, and I was a leopard. My cheetah friend killed something and I just immediately took the body. Another time I was a cheetah and a friend was a hyena hunting me and they just out stammered me, both times we basically just went “heh, guess that is how it would go irl huh?”

  • You should do a teir list on the future is wild creatures.

  • This was halitosis, you get a instant subscribe and notification from me

  • You gotta do “are otters op?” They eat literally everything and beat up on alligators all the time

  • do horse tier list

  • I'd wanted to see about Antlion build. Is that good?

  • Hey what do you think about the new monkey dlc

  • I hope this doesn't sound too sentimental or corny, but the time I found your videos coincided with a rough period of my life. Binging your content helped me a lot, and it got me really interested in zoology (so much so that I now do an "Animal of the Day" system wherein I research one animal each day). Thank you very much for making entertaining content.

  • Make a game base in your videos pls

  • I need to know the song in the background

  • Does Tierzoo do video request? I really want to see him two separate videos on 🦍 and 🦁 being OP

  • Do a video on microscopic builds

  • Make a game about these

  • The problem with cheaters in csgo is that they are fucking disgusting and annoying! Oh, wrong video...

  • Black Ops 2

  • Are bears op?

  • Just found a albino lion skin looking to trade Any takers answer with the comments

  • I wish he would upload more often

  • can you please talk about carnivore plants

  • I heard humans have broken the intelligence cap, they did this by subscribing to curiosity stream.

  • The reason why the cheetahs build is f tier is because it goes against its own trade. Having unshaped claws and low body mass directly lowers the power of its leap ability. But the fact that he its manage to find a spot in the mata just show how important the speed state is. And i was wondering if we had a speed max canine build would it be broken. Because unlike cats canine rely more on it bite to do damge. And speed can even give them an edge in combat because of their bite and run strategie.

  • +10% cuteness buff which makes the human player base want to protect them in artificial habitats

  • Tierzoo my man I hope you see this, but can you start putting your sources in the description so we can learn more? This stuff is interesting so it would be super cool if we could learn more than your videos cover. It would be awesome

  • I am at everything but you never talking anything about viruses boy bacteria boy I love parasites

  • Would a hyena be a canine or a cat?

  • Who has the better minion build for the current meta, bees or ants?

  • Hey um hope someone will reply what is this video based of? Like uh skyrim? Sorry if i sound dum dum just asking

  • Its so unfair that they are gonna give humans preparing-time with the Mars sequel

  • Make a video about the Indominus Rex build. People theorised it for months and in 2015 with the usage of mods people were able to add extra evolution points and increased the cap giving room for crazy new builds like the Indominus Rex.

  • So i guess chitah need the bœuf :D

  • How about a parasite tier list?

  • video idea: Are really fishes viable for the meta

  • “Call an ambulance.....but not for me!” 🤣

  • Here are some idea for videos Are woodpecker op? Are giraffes op? Are zebra op? The problem with koalas Are red pandas op? Are elk op? Are moose op? And the are raccoons op? Also would it be worth it if a cheetah specks into the sweat ability?

  • talk abt the giraffe

  • Your video makes me realize how much I still love RuneScape even though I’m a 28 year old man..

  • Make ant tier list pls

  • I have a question, Where can I get the game?

  • Hello! I am currently involved in a debate in regards to the population size of the cheetahs. My friend is suggesting, strongly, that the population was diminished to only two individuals roughly 10.000 years ago. For this the paper by Michele Merola from 1994 called "A Reassessment of Homozygosity and the Case for Inbreeding Depression in the Cheetah, Acinonyx jubatus: Implications for Conservation". She also uses a quote "an extreme bottleneck, in which the population is reduced to only two individuals". I can't find any supporting evidence for this quote nor for any definitions of bottlenecks, official or unofficial. Unfortunately I lack the capability to read the submitted article in full, I've requested her to send me the PDF as she has access to it through her university. However; I can only find evidence for the species to have been reduced to two very small subspecies and also two populations. The homozygosity of the cheetah is also very high, around 95%, but I can't find any sources claiming this would be a reason to deduce that it was two individuals. The Cheetah Is Depauperate in Genetic Variation. STEPHEN J. O'BRIEN1, DAVID E. WILDT1, DAVID GOLDMAN2, CARL R. MERRIL3, MITCHELL BUSH4. 1983. East African cheetahs: evidence for two population bottlenecks? S J O'Brien, D E Wildt, M Bush, T M Caro, C FitzGibbon, I Aggundey, and R E Leakey. 1987. Dating the genetic bottleneck of the African cheetah. M Menotti-Raymond and S J O'Brien. 1993. So do you, with your years of experience, have any insight into this or any tips for how to go about finding out the truth about the claim? She seems very adamant that she is right, seems fishy that I can't find her quote of extreme bottlenecks though. She might just not want to be wrong. I might just want to be right, but I doubt it... Best regards

  • Make a vid on a maxed out human player

  • Ty for the bo2 music

  • Armadillos

  • Is he banned because leaking too much "how to defeat op builds" thing?

  • So cheetahs are the cat’s glass cannon

  • Can you make a "Are Moose Op?"

  • If you running low on ideas you can do videos related to animal killer products vs said animals? Like bug spray vs bugs for example. Or is bug spray OP? Etc etc.

  • Raise your hand if you can't wait to be able to spec into a metal-based composition instead of a meat-based one.

  • Ah yes, Cheetah - the typical hardcore skill player that requires good precision to succeed, but when it does it's quite effective and rewarding.

  • When will the next Let's Play video come out? It's been some time since the last episode. Was quite interesting to see you play some of the alpha builds.

  • U should cover more aquatic animals

  • can you design a build with all stats maxed out

  • Cheetahs are just cats using speed exploits

  • 3:04 Kid just wanted to skip around on a hot sunny day😩

  • Imagine if a animal had max of every thing

  • I just need this man to release a video so we can see CURI go to the moon Edit: also great content is another reason why I wanna see a new vid

  • Im still being a cheetah this wont change my mind

  • So if Cheetahs evolve a bit and learn to role in packs seems like theyll be a force to be reckon with. Lets see what happens, hopefully my favorite animal stays around either way.

  • Is this a game or could you make it into a game I would definitely play it your content is just so cool. My personal favourites are the fish.

  • I wanna download the game he’s talking about

  • Ok just a quick question if anyone will answer but i im a new snake build player, what build should i put my stats into And what skill tree should I use to be most effective

  • Can someone please help, what is the background music in the first portion of the video? Its driving me crazy
