Can animals that typically live on both land and water live without being in the water?

Reddit Animals

Apologies for the weirdly worded title. I know that there are certain animals like frogs, capybaras, alligators, beavers and turtles that live on both land and water. If any of these animals were put into a place where they had access only to drinking water, but no body of water to swim in, does this jeopardize their ability to survive?

Low pitched screaming sound from animal at 1 AM

Reddit Animals

I took my dog out last night around 1 AM and was frightened by this low pitch screaming sound coming from off in the distance. It did not sound human so I am wondering what type of animal it may be. I am in the upper part of South Carolina in a developed neighborhood with lots of woods behind us. We have some farms with livestock nearby as well. Genuinely curious what it might be.

What animal species are evil, i.e eat their offspring

Reddit Animals

I know dolphins are rapists, zoophiles using other fish for flashlights , and necrophiliacs. Tiger and Squirel males will kill a mother's children so she will become broody and be back for mating season. I'm just wondering what other species of animals are awful?
