The first one was a difficult choice. I love owls and think they're cool, but the cuttlefish is an equally cool competitor that deserves more love.

The cuttlefish has one of the best camouflaging abilities of any animal. It can change not only the color of its skin, but also the texture of its skin to match anything around it, and it can do it almost instantaneously. It doesn't just use its color changing ability to camouflage. By flashing various patterns, it can also hypnotize prey.

I have a soft spot for owls and birds in general, cuttlefish are wonderful creatures but I have birb bias. Please look at r/superbowl if you need more convincing of how great owls are.
More indifferent on this second match. Bats are cute, but the frog’s cool factor is stronger here imo.

Alright, folks, we're not going to let this game die quite yet. I've received permission from Varhii to take over running this fun little tournament. I think having rounds twice a week is not too much, so we'll try starting new rounds on Sundays and Wednesdays. That gives a bit of time for the news to spread and for anyone who still wants to vote in this current round to do so.

Barn Owl and Little Brown Bat move on to the next round!
Barn Owl - 15 and Cuttlefish - 3
Little Brown Bat - 11
and Poison Dart Frog - 7

This time we're going to increase the number of matches in each round so that the event as a whole won't drag out for so long. Get ready to vote on four matchups! (You're not required to vote for every matchup in the round, but I will say it makes counting votes a lot easier!)

Ghost Shrimp vs Norwegian Forest Cat!

vs
Arctic Fox vs Red-winged Blackbird!

vs
Spotted Hyena vs Ragamuffin Cat!

vs
White-winged Vampire Bat vs Carnotaurus!

vs

---

I myself will be voting for:
Ghost Shrimp vs Norwegian Forest Cat
Arctic Fox vs Red-winged Blackbird
Spotted Hyena vs Ragamuffin Cat
White-winged Vampire Bat vs Carnotaurus

Norwegian Forest Cat - not too familiar with shrimps even though that one does look cool.
Arctic Fox cutie! I love the color!
Spotted Hyena - hyenas are great and not just because of TLK (I have a general bias for predators, not really sure why)
Carnotaurus - Rawr!

Gotta go Cat, Fox, Hyena, Bat. Reasoning: Cats wild or not are much cooler than any shrimp imo. Foxes are adorable, especially arctic foxes and I will back a fox over any bird. Hyenas are the best, and most doglike, cats try to change my mind. And the bat, well I'm not going to turn my back on the creature I suggested. Besides vampire bats are so cool.

Ghost shrimp seem like a very useful animal to have in an aquarium, while the Norwegian Forest Cat...isn't one of my favorite breeds
As much as I hate voting against a birb, the fox is just too adorable and this blackbird has a call that's kind of annoying sounding
Again, not one of my favorite cat breeds and hyenas have some interesting social behavior
I don't see anything particularly noteworthy about this vampire bat, but in learning about the Carnotaurus it is actually pretty interesting that we have just a single (but very well-preserved) specimen and paleontologists were able to learn a lot about it. It also has the tiniest arms I've ever seen on a dinosaur
