    Alot of men and women are just as attractive after hours
    of hair and makeup and photo wizardry.....

    Humans are not a predator by your characterization of predators as "more symetrical and balanced". If humans were predators, then the sentence "Predators are generally more attractive than prey" does not apply, since you based that on "symetrical and balanced".

    Perhaps, but their pictures aren't readily available on the internet to post in threads. Post some equally hot pics of yourself and I'd be happy to use them when I next need a hot chic pic.

    Humans as a species are ecridible androgenous, Most species have quit large differences between males and females. As strange as it may seem looks don't really matter to humans and the most sexual appealing is the way people walk the way they talk what they ay how they dress etc.

    So human sexuality and concept of beauty are proberly unnoticed by most annimals that proberly regards us as baggy half cameleons that make to much noise and apear to have no genitals at all (people generally keep them begind closed pants altough they can proberly smell the difference)

    While it's true that the differences between human males and females are not as great as in some other species, your drawing is a bit misleading as the male and female appear to be exactly the same size.

    Speaking for myself, I'm about a foot taller and 80 pounds heavier than my wife.

    Good question. I think no, but I don't think it matters. If you look at a Lion, you probably aren't attracted to it, but it really doesn't matter because you don't look at Lions for the sake of sex.

    So, animals might not find us attractive, but they probably don't care because it's not as if they go looking for Human mates

    I've only read a fre responses in the this thread, so I'll take the risk of this already having been said.

    The question is actually very, very silly! Why would you even suppose they wouldn't vew humans as just more animals? Wild animals already come in such varied shapes and forms that the question isn't even sensible in the least.

    Obviously the question is blurred in the person's mind, and he's trying to get closer to it.

    If you eliminate aesthetics and symmetry—any characteristics pertaining to our notions on beauty; what's left? Consciousness, and anything connected to it. And what's holding consciousness together? A slew of components, yes? Intent, will, susceptibilities, intelligence, awareness, demeanor, what else? tempo, kinesics, libido, sensuality, drive—all these and more have a language, a bearing, a modulation that elicit a response—is there a harmonious unity among the components, or do they clash? I think these are some of the characteristics animals will instinctively read into and react to. Well, with the exception of domesticated animals, wild animals will also instinctively flee—obviously they don't like what they see.
