I found these from my backyard, , my terrariums mostly have ferns and pothos but I thought I might add some small stuff as fillers/diversity I just dont know if its a no no, can someone ID them out of curiosity anyway?
Hey everyone. I just bought two Guinea Pigs, Keisuke and Ryosuke, and I saw a few online guides on how to take care of them but /an/ tends to come up with really good tips on how to tend to pets. What are certain things I should do to make sure they're happy and healthy? Are there speciic foods I should focus on, or avoid? Can they be fed mostly on rations or should try to balance it out with vegetables? I read that they like carrots and bellpeppers, and so far I had success trying the former. I also cut pieces of a big fleece sheet I had stored around and made some soft zones for them to rest on, including a comfortable nest of sorts. Any other tips, advices, anything?
As far as interactions went, Ryosuke (the black one) is pretty amiable and has been accepting of carresses and treats, and doesn't really seem to be all too nervous about touching or even being moved around. Keisuke on the other hand seems to sort of freeze up, staring blankly while making purr-like noises when he's being caressed. It's hard to tell if he's scared shitless or enjoying it and just happens to be too quiet for his own good. Otherwise, both have been eating and drinking regularly and are adapting to their new home.
Hey man, I've had a guina pig back in time but it didnt last long. Anyway, the lil guys like carrots, apple and many more vegetable. With that they tend to poop a lot and it it up again but it's normal. Make sure they drink and eat regularly, if they don't it's a bad sign.
They're top tier cute and fun to play with so have fun with them !
Alright, so I live in my mother's basement and the other day, while I was working, I noticed this strange banging against my room's well window (the place where frogs tend to jump into and can't get out). During my break I decided to check it out. I was confused because there was nothing there except the weeds (which have been growing for years.) So I go back to work. Then it starts happening again and I still can't see anything in the weeds. After probably several hours of work and programming burnout, I decide to go and wait at the window for it to happen...

Don't have a pic to go with this but it'll have to do.
About three years ago my mother and I were driving home from work. We decided to take the back way after stopping at the gym; it's a two-lane road that turns into a four-lane after a stoplight. We pass that and I see, out my window, a snapping turtle that's the size of a large backpack trying to cross the road. In afternoon, rush hour traffic.
I shouted at my mom to turn around, she does, and we got stuck at the light we just passed trying to reach it. So I got out and haul ass across the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2158233 Never owned one but I looked after one when my friend and his gf went on holiday. She was the sweetest little creature I have ever seen, never played up and only required mild exercise before she napped. Very easy. His gf says that most of them are like this.
Tl;Dr post petsmart / petco experiences good or bad
Is petsmart as bad as people make it out to be ? I have really mixed feelings my local petsmart is actually "okay" at taking care of some of the animals I got my first ball python there and the only problem with him was he a little cold but now that he's in my setup fr him he's doing fine.
I have to say, at least they're better than smaller pet deposit stores
There's a pet store near my house that sells dogs and cats for hundreds of thousands of dollars, they don't come with papers, and the dogs are kept in tiny cell like cages and they put 2 or 3 cats inside slightly bigger cages and stack them on top of each other. The parakeets are stacked next to and on top of each other as well. I've heard they get their animals from puppy and kitten mills
The Petsmart has a lot better setup. They have a cat room where they bring in cats... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2138154 Our petsmart doesn't have ferrets, but the petco near my grandfather's house does. They have Marshall (mill) ferrets in bedding (which they dont need- cloth would be better). I assume they never get time out, and theres way too many for the small cage they're in. I've seen them sleeping in litterboxes. The one near my house is questionable. I'm not much of a rodent person but they seem pretty cramped in their cage. The cats also have super small enclosures, and I'm unsure if they have... Comment too long.

Guys, I was walking outside today, and I've seen a dog with something strange on both ears. Looks like necrosis produced by canine scabies. The owner seems to be rarely at home, and the dog is always tied. Can I report this to the authorities?
Pic related. This is the best pic I took, he was always moving.
>>2159883 Actually seems to be ticks. I already sent a mail to my nearest canine shelter, to see if they could help me. Before that I've been asking around, and seems that the authorities will not give a fuck about it.
Btw, I've seen this dog around 2 weeks ago, and it was ok. Does it get this bad in 2 weeks?
I'm in possession of a couple of piranha jaws. They have been cleaned, but not by me (so i don't know how). They still smell though. Any tips on how to get rid of the smell? And also maybe on keeping them from discoloring too much?
>>2159815 what i usually do is pull out the deads when i see them and mash them up with my boot heel. when they are a thin pastey material, i mash it with some flake food and drop it in the tank. the others love the treat.
>>2159815 >How many times a day should you normally scoop the dead fish out of your aquarium? Reconsider keeping fish as a hobby if you even approach having to replace fish daily. Remove them as soon as possible you dense fuck.
anyone know a lot about birds? I went to my family farm earlier today and there was a bird that I've never seen before. I'm curious if this new bird might eat grain or cause other problems. I couldn't figure out what it was from online bird identification programs because I couldn't search for certain parts of the bird.
picture related: the bird looked similar to this but with certain changes described below.
it had a small bit of red on it's head feather/fluff. the foot had 4 toes so it could grab a branch from front and back to wrap around.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
the bird I saw looks very close in overall shape as that but is brown and spotted. the red on it's head is right above the eyes, middle of head. that part is hard to see as I didn't notice it until I was holding the bird.
the farm where I saw a bunch of them is south of Lloydminster which is on the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan
I really want to own a boxer some day. They can be absolutely beautiful and total love bugs. All the boxers I met when I worked at a vet clinic were so kind regardless of their owner's lifestyle. To be fair though, owners who at least bring their pet to the vet are often times much better than those who don't.
I'm living the college life though and can't afford a place with a big yard for big dogs.
>>2159294 Once I'm settled down enough to start a family I'm sure I'll add a boxer to the house as well. My current dog (GSD, sheltie, bloodhound mix according to a DNA test) is such a brat and I have no clue what he'll be like around kids. He's going to be old by the time that happens though so maybe he won't even care.
I moved to a new place, my cat keeps shitting in the bath.
How long until she stops doing this?
She has a litter tray by the door, and she pisses in that. I'm going to install a cat flap at the weekend. I don't want to lock her out of the bathroom since I don't want her to shit in my bed or something.
I was outside yesterday near a stream filled with dragon flies, crawdads, frogs, etc and picked up a rock. Under the rock was something like pic related, i didn't see the tail and tried my best to draw it with memory. It had longer antennae than other crayfish and it retreated into a burrow once i picked up the rock. If it helps i'm in North New Jersey.
I live in southeast Michigan and I always hear this sound that sounds like a wolf howling or a siren or something-- but I'm pretty sure there's no wolves around the Detroit metro area so I don't know what it is, and I know it isn't a siren.
I recorded a sound of it (It is sort of hard to hear beneath the bird sounds and windchimes but it's the best I could do-- it is a protracted slow sorrowful sound)
It rained last night and is a little colder today than it has been recently if that means anything. I recorded the sound at about 11:30am.

>>2159120 *I push one finger gently into your kitty's anus and my digits get swallowed as I went past the anal ring. I enjoyed finger fucking the kitty because she was clearly enjoying it too. My pants get firm and uncomfortable and I loosen them and shift around so that I had my dick in one hand while the fingers of the other hand continued frigging her anus. Her cunt juices had my thighs drenched all the way to my twitching balls
“Like it kitty? Do you like me finger fucking your arse? Is it nice?” I heard her meow softly and I knew that she was having thoughts of sex go through her kitty mind.*
Why doesn't the US try thorium reactors to meet our energy needs? Why is coal still so widely used? Why are people saying that solar and wind are the only ways to obtain sustainable energy? So many questions.
Had to put one of our dogs down tonight due to Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia.
You guys ever had a dog get this? It seemingly came out of fucking nowhere and we had to put him down the same day he seemed to get sick. Seemed 100% A-okay yesterday, and then today he could barely even move.
Vet said they could try blood transfusions, but there was very little chance of it having any effect. And if we didnt want to go for that they didnt think he'd make it another 24hours. So we finally decided to do the deed. Gonna miss him.
Hello /an/ I am in need of some advice. My girlfriend has two ferrets(female), and one of them had pancreas cancer. We take good care of both of them, the one with cancer takes medicine twice a day every day to regulate its blood sugar. Recently we both have noticed he sick ferret had been losing weight despite the fact that it eats well every day. We also noticed that she is losing fur in places too. My girlfriend texted me today telling me the sick ferret had a bout of diarrhea in the middle of the living room, which is usual because she ferret normally uses the litter... Comment too long.

>>2158517 It's a really tough decision, OP. I personally waited a long time to put my cat down. It wasn't until she had an awful seizure that I could bring myself to go to the vet for the put-down. I regret not doing it sooner, it was selfish of me. She was in pain when she went because I waited.
My point is, I guess, that you guys will feel like shit no matter what, whether she dies naturally or by drugs. Either way she will die and it will be awful for you guys, but you can make it less painful. Plan the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Thank you for the advice. I'm gonna talk to my girlfriend when she gets off work and discuss what she wants to do.
Anyone happen to know any great homemade treats I can make for the little fuzz butt? Something I can give her that she would love? Doesn't necessarily have to be healthy as it would be a last day treat. But I also Don't want to feed her anything that would kill her.
I was digging through my closet today and found a critter keeper, was thinking about catching some kind of big beetle to keep for a bit for fun Are there any hardy species /an/ would recommend? In the southern US. Saw one big black one about two inches long on my porch a few weeks ago
