The ticks actually cause quite a bit of pain for the warthog, especially when you consider how many are on its body. Both soft and hard ticks cause skin irritation and inflammation, with is painful for the warthog. Aside from this, hard ticks, especially in abundance, cause anemia in the animal they are feeding on, and blood loss, not to mention tick bourn diseases such as ASF. It seems to have collapsed, just from finally having that pain (specifically skin irritation), subside. Just my speculation, as animals were not my specialty, but still rather fascinating creatures. Really interesting example of mutualism, that I rarely see discussed.

The mongoose is such a fascinating little creature too! Clever, quick, and fearless. Their bodies naturally have a mutation that protects them against venom. They aren’t infrequently kept as pets, because they are so good at dealing with everything from venomous snakes to scorpions. Seeing this video has made me want to read Rikki-Tikki-Tavi again.

Edit: There’s a lot of lovely people here, but since posting this message I’ve been receiving a lot of hate mail. As a survivor of a hate crime, this is making me very uncomfortable (specifically the dm’s I’m receiving) and so I am going to just disengage here. I have edited for clarification.

At the risk of being argumentative over something insignificant, what makes you think that? It sounds like a pretty big and off-base assumption tbh. Tick bites aren’t painful, even to human skin which is extraordinarily sensitive compared to the hide of warthog. They’ve evolved to not cause pain, it would be disadvantageous to hurt and urgently alert the host, they have anesthetic secretions.

My guess would be some itching rather than pain, and that he’s just lazily flopping down to rest while being groomed.

My Dad once made the exceptionally poor decision to go hiking, in shorts, no shirt, and had not used any insect repellent…He ended up in the ER, with 262 ticks attached to his body. He said it was agony.

Although a warthog is different from a human, considering they both have nervous systems, and experience pain, I can’t imagine it would be much different pain wise, especially when considering pigs are frequently used in lab models. There have also been instances where ticks have caused severe anemia in animals. Whether this warthog was struggling with that, I don’t know, but as someone with anemia, I can say it isn’t pleasant. The pain ticks cause, tends to be due to the long term problems any parasite would create. It’s still pain nonetheless.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4774835/ "During feeding, ticks can lead to several deleterious effects on the host such as traumatic action by tick bites determining a dermatoid process with direct damage to the skin and other subcutaneous tissues, inflammation and significant blood loss by hematophagism. It can be observed compression and laceration of cells and tissues, generally associated with pruritis, edema, erythema, excoriation, papules, lichenification, scaling and ulceration by self-trauma. Predisposition to secundary process for bacterial infection can stimulate immune responses in some individuals leading to hypersensitivity. Apart from causing diseases, the behavior of ticks also may cause indirectly harm, causing disturbance, increasing levels of stress and in cattle, for example, leather depreciation, being economically the most important ectoparasites of cattle. Direct effects of tick infestation on cattle include the sucking of blood which causes anaemia and damage to the skin or hide, with downstream effects resulting in substantial losses in terms of reductions in productivity and fertility, body weight, and milk production, and in toxicoses, paralysis, and mortality [35].

Furthermore, ticks can induce a motor illness causing an acute, ascending flaccid paralysis with a rapid clinical evolution and lethal if not immediately treated both in humans and in animals. "

it looks more like it got tired of being in a half stand. i doubt it collapsed from having tick pain subside. that doesn't make sense, and it's an example of emotional projection where you assume the mental state of something else based on a narrative of your own fabrication.

happens a lot in social media, and then misinformation can follow. like reposts titling the submission "🔥🔥WARTHOG'S BLISSFUL RETURN TO PAIN-FREE LIFE", or some other nonsense that prompts people to feel and think a certain way about what's happening, and it mushrooms from there.

i think most people see this behavior as harmless, but it's problematic. we need more education and knowledge instead of people self-taught through emotional assumptions, and then passing those assumptions down as facts. that leads to combative, uncooperative division, and it happens across the board-- not just for warthog trivia.

6

u/GodsGiftToNothing Mar 22 '23

Pain may have not been the right word, but rather it was probably suffering from anemia.

Pigs are frequently used in models because they are so much like humans. I am not placing an emotion on the animal, but rather a statement of fact. Animals experience painful long term health conditions from ticks, mainly due to disease, and severe anemia. This isn’t anthropomorphizing, it is well accepted scientific knowledge. We wouldn’t be using pigs in medicine otherwise. The physical pain they experience, is part of what is monitored.

Commensalism is a long-term biological interaction (symbiosis) in which members of one species gain benefits while those of the other species neither benefit nor are harmed.[1] This is in contrast with mutualism, in which both organisms benefit from each other; amensalism, where one is harmed while the other is unaffected; parasitism, where one is harmed and the other benefits, and parasitoidism, which is similar to parasitism but the parasitoid has a free-living state and instead of just harming its host, it eventually ends up killing it.

That is one of the most helpful Wikipedia intro paragraphs I've seen in a long time.
