Zoologist Christmas Special: Stable ecology
It is a decaying but hot barn, a newly born child in a crib, and a peaceful backdrop of animals. Which animals would have actually been in a stable in Bethlehem 2000 years ago, and what still lurks in the shade and in the mud?
However, the archeology of the area has given us a great deal of information about the pets' histories and vet research allows us to make well-founded assumptions about the animals that have probably experienced such an even. The majority of the known farm animals were permanently indigenous in Jesus' day, possibly because they were overhunted by animals and humans needed another means of feeding.
"All but turkeys were already at home long before the nativity of Jesus," says Albano Beja-Pereira of the University of Porto, Portugal. Soon after, cows followed: they were domesticized in Southwest Asia by game animals, the auerochs, and then brought to Africa and Europe.
At about the same period, swine were domesticized in different places. Asses were domestiziert in Africa about 5000 years ago by a only subtype of the wilderness of Africa donkey. Once the animals were domesticized, they drastically altered, often became more colorful and developed complex designs such as the dark and whitish patches of some races of cows.
In Jesus' day, "their fur colors would now be almost certainly recognizable to us and different from their fierce counterparts," says Greger Larson of Durham University, UK. Castration of males was also introduced 4000 years ago and produces domesticated and hard-working animals such as cattle. All of this informs us that the beloved image of birth, which is visited by well-known domestic animals such as cattle, ovine and donkey, is at least archeologically feasible, although not verifiable.
Tightly pack animals are always enticing destinations for parasite seeking a home, and pets are no exceptions. When we follow the traditions and believe that Jesus was borne in Hibernation, all the animals in the area would be covered with bees. They would have been infected with bovine louses chewing on their fur and skins.
"Cooties are more frequent in winters because the fur of the animals is longer and thicker matted," says Richard Wall of the University of Bristol, UK. The animals lose their coat in early springs, along with most of their cooties, so that a summers birthday would have been lesspruritic. Anybody who hung around in a stable would have been confused by the bazar goat, the Middle East counterpart to the house cinch.
In most cases stable-flies eat the sex of farm animals, especially cows, but sometimes they also eat people. There, the grubs hibernate and eat the animals' mucosa. It often reaches for the genitalia and infects tens of thousands of animals around the globe. If you are about to give birth, try another place than a stable.
