It's not too uncommon for a known herbivore to supplement their diet with meat for protein purposes - you can see this especially with certain mammals like deer or even cows.
in fact no animal is 100% carnivorous or 100% herbivorous to my knowledge. cats for example are obligate carnivores but will gladly eat grass which helps them with digestive processes, or something

as for yoshis. i like to think they just reproduce through parthenogenesis like certain lizards. this is supported by a few games even
but they can and do also lay eggs without offspring, which yoshis even can as newborns apparently... i realise theyd need a diet that especially actually helps with producing eggshells ?

Definitely yeah, most animals simply lean more towards a particular diet and will supplement from various sources! An interesting fact I learned is that the Bearded Vulture eats bones specifically. But the proteins, which those foods are rich in, are actually most helpful for the animal's reproduction.

Parthenogenesis is common in a lot of reptiles and amphibians. It is rarely seen in birds though, the more avian the dinosaur the less likely I think it would be capable of doing so.

ah yep yep bearded vultures mostly eat bone marrow (or something) and theyre also like the best bird ever i think
and huh yeahhh it looks like parthenogenesis for birds never results well. most of the time the eggs dont even hatch, and even if a bird produced by this DOES hatch it develops problems anyway
wikipedia said:
Rarely, viable birds result from this process, and the rate at which this occurs in turkeys can be increased by selective breeding,[89] however male turkeys produced from parthenogenesis exhibit smaller testes and reduced fertility.[90]
so huhh.... that kind of sets a problem for yoshis huh

I would say we are applying real-world logic to an adorable fictional dinosaur that can talk and allows a plumber to ride on his back, so some liberties can and are definitely taken here. Heh.

Same here actually. You should see the discussions people have about Godzilla's phylogeny and whatnot!

I know some have claimed Yoshi reproduced asexually, but I have always had the headcanon there are male and female Yoshies.


There should be a Yoshi's Island game with Kirby instead of Baby Mario.
It would make a great crossover game. Yoshi and Kirby have a lot in common.

Haha yeah Yoshi breaks rules like any fictional character. I love em though. :)

Your first question is a trick question all Yoshi's are amazing and the best except for the Yoob. Also, do you remember the game they love me, they love me not on Super Mario 64 DS and New Super Mario Bros.And here is some Yoshi art for You. I also call baby Yoshi´s Moshi because that was what my best friend called them.

So I was wondering if I was the first one to solve that trick and you wondering about Kamek well
Kamek is a motherly figure to Baby Bowser but is also a dude.

Others voted all of the above, but you were the first to post it, so you win!

I think that’s a wiki issue of confusing Kamek and Kammy Koopa. It actually came up in discussion once before.
