2 MB,
I've got two questions to ask, but I'll start with this; In my dirt driveway we always get this massive puddle that we wade through. It's normally a hot spot for frogs, but now I found a baby snapping turtle in it. I haven't seen these guys around, and there aren't any egg shells. Should I just leave this little guy be, or help them out?

Do 30 minutes concentrated walking per day and increase this by 10 minutes each month he gets older.

When you get home ignore him until he is settled the pet him.

Cut the praise and baby talk out, calm it right down and speak normally.

Thats a good start and you should notice an improvement.

when he is 1 year old ?

>>2157276

It's three months old. You have a baby, he's not going to be calm.

You need to tire him out by play/mental stimulation- don't go pounding the streets on lead with him, there's absolutely no need for puppies and it's not brilliant for his joints- he'd get far more out of a good play session/training session with you.

However, once again- it's three months old, expect to have a hyper puppy around for at least a few years yet.

Hello /an/ soon to be first time pet owner ( parents never let me have any pets growing up )

But I decided I want a bearded dragon, and I've watched a few videos and I've gotten the gist of what I need, but I thought i'd consult you guys about any possible complications.

Is it difficult to optimize temperature in their tanks? And how difficult can it be to clean up after them? (such as droppings and just general maintenance for their homes)

And any other advice for a complete beginner would be much appreciated. I also considered leopard geckos...

I've own multiple bearded in my life time and they've always been one of my favorite reptiles aside from my sneks. As far as clean up if yiu have them on sand it's as simple as a scooper. For temperature it's fairly easy to maintain. I recommend a 40 gallon tank with a 150 wat basking spot bulb on one side and a uvb on the other side of the tank. Make sure you have a rock or something under the best bulb that will get hot. It's recommend to have a backing spot that is around 100-140 degrees. But with the 150wat on a 40 gallon it'll keep the tank around a solid 90

Hello /a/, I'm adopting a new dog this week and just found out the current owners give him a mix of Purina and Iams canned dog food. I've never liked Purina and didn't know about this other one but the reviews online are awful.

I currently feed my dog with Acana (Canada) and not an issue with his diet since I got him, now, for this new one I'm not sure how to make the transition. It can be possible that combining Acana with the other two will result in horrible diarrhea for the doggo but switching right away to this new food without transition is...

Some extra information. The dog is a Siberian Husky 6 months. Pic related is the other food they give him mixed with Purina.
>>
Do it over the course of a week or two. Do the old food with a tiny bit of new food, and each day put in more new food and less old food. do that really slowly until you are doing all new food.

If you are really absolutely opposed to the old food, you can do the same thing but with chiggens n rice. One of my rescues refused to eat the food she had at the shelter at home, so I had to do that.

Good luck. Slow and steady.
>>
Id just do a complete switch and slightly underfed the Acana for a couple of days and keep an eye on the poop. My puppy is on 5 and 2/3 cups a day so I just do 3 cups morning and 2 cups eyeballing 2/3 and he does get diahreah if Im a bit over.

I also underfeed by 2 cups once a week to give him a hard shit for his scent glands.

Hello /an/ I need advice on getting rid of what I think are midges,

Now it's starting to get out of control. I have no idea where they're coming from. They're even getting into the fridge and dying inside. Every day I open the fridge door there's a group of them dead at the bottom.

if you do it, youd have to avoid going into urban settings because of moralfags and cars. If you can manage being homless and living in the woods, or atleast having your home base be in the woods, you'll probably be fine.

FAQ Section:

>Can I keep my Betta/Goldfish in a bowl?

No, unless you wanna risk nitrite/ammonia poisoning due to small water volume/excess waste and stunted growth.

For a Betta, get a cheap 5-10 gallon tank, give him some shade via plants and add filtration.

For Goldfish, get at least a 20 gallon tank and add 10-15 gallon per extra goldfish.
You want good filtration, since these fish produce large amounts of waste.

>I wanna do Aquaponics!

I most cases this a bad idea, since both plants and fish will suffer.
Water parameters for the fish will most likely be bad due to lack of proper filtration and plants not drawing enough harmful substances out of the water.
Your plants may become malnourished since fish may not produce enough minerals/waste to properly fertilize them.

Unless you have really thought this through, you are better off with both things being seperate.

>Could I start out with saltwater?

If you never took care of fish before, it is advisable to start out with fresh water beforehand. Gather knowledge and then, over the years, you can graduate into saltwater.
Saltwater tanks are much more susceptible and need closer monitoring in terms of parameters than most freshwater systems.
Also if money is an issue, be prepared to spend at least 500$-1500$ for your first saltwater setup and rather choose a big tank (55gallon+) to allow more stable water conditions.
>>
>>2155626
>Is my lighting sufficient for the plants I wish to keep?

Unless you have a PAR Meter, it is hard to measure whether your lighting is truly sufficient.
If you got LEDs you could try using the Lumen per Litre. Let's say you have a 54l tank and use an LED that has 1600 Lumen.
Divide the 1600 by 54 and you got roughly 30 lumen per litre which is somewhat in the higher medium range.
So if you got a specific plant, just google it's lumen per litre or use flowgrow...

>How can I get rid of Snails?

Most of the time, it would be sufficient to just reduce your feeding.Most snail species don't harm plants but if you feel you have to many, boil a cucumber, put it in the tank to lure the snails, and collect them off.
There are also certain species like assassin Snails, dwarf puffer fish and loaches that like to eat snails but again, make sure they fit in your tank and don't cause trouble with tank mates.
Loaches for example get...

He will bark. The only time he does not bark is when he is being chased by the other two. The barking only happens when they are running around. I'm pretty sure he's just barking to get there attention so he can be chased. I have no fucking clue how to fix this.

Can someone please help identify these tracks?
Pictures were taken on a farm in a rural/suburb area in central new jersey by a relative of mine. The local animal population is a mix of small game, deer and the occasional black bear. She claims that the tracks are twice the size of her great dane's, and that dog is probably about 100-140 pounds. They appear to be cat tracks, but the size and stride would appear to be too big for a bob cat. Any ideas? Also, sorry for the subjective size scales, I got the photos off facebook.

I can understand how bad you feel, but dogs are living creatures just like you are. You shouldn't try to live their life for them. It ran away, and that was not your fault. Your dog had a seizure and died, and that as well was not your fault. These things happen to all other creatures on this planet including humans. Bad things always happen for the good things to come.

This fucking piece o' shit monstrosity is as big as a fucking hamster itself, and a rat couldn't fit in this piece of shit.

The only use for this puny thing is filling it up with rubber and using it as a fleshlight. It's about the size of the average dick, after all.

It's ghetto and tacky.
Aquariums look classy with natural rocks, they look ghetto with wal-wart gravel and plastic plants.

Fish don't live in a world like that.
They feel calmer with black gravel.
Bright colors indicate poison in nature.
Light colors indicate shallow-water thus the fish live in fear of predation and lose their natural coloration.

Ever see feeder guppies? The gray ones that cost 99 cents per head? They are the same species as the colorful ones, only living a...

because /an/ and animal rights groups consist of a bunch of hatchet wounds for whom moral signalling is a safe and effective way to assert superiority and climb their own localized clique ladders.

Same reason why a vid on youtube of someone petting an animal will invariably have at least 10 female commentors sobbing
>you don't pet them that way they'll get psychological damage this is super cereal whyyyy?!?

>>2156375

Sounds like /an/ to be honest. I see threads all the time where people are asking for help, and /an/ goes batshit because not everyone can afford proper healthcare or keep their arm up their dog's ass to prevent it moving more than a few inches away from them.

People are crazy, man. If you genuinely love and respect your animal, it's more than likely gonna be just fine. Millions of dogs are in loving homes that haven't done socialization and obedience and taught the basic 9 commands. It works...

Because most of /an/ and, by extension, 4chan, is autistic and can't comprehend that people's actions can be unintentional.

Sorry about your pet, anon.

871 KB,
How long would you guess it would take to befriend a murder of Crows in my backyard? I'm living in somewhat suburban/rural area.

I'm hoping to get them to scare away the barn swallows that are constantly dive bombing me to protect pic related.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how autistic/likely to work is this idea?

Want to add I've been feeding them for around a week now, almost every day... There seem to be a decent number hanging around all day now. Before I hardly saw them

Sounds like you already know what you're doing then. Just keep it up. Be consistent.

I did this for fun, in the middle of a big city. Got to the point they would get in petting distance as i only fed the ones that got close. Must have looked funny to ppl driving by.

5 KB,
the police has told me I have two days to get rid of my dogs because they have done something really wrong

"Luckily" the local police is pretty "chill". And they give those two days to "get ready" which in my "province" means I have time to figure something out.

The thing is, I don't have alive relatives nor close friends (at least not the ones I can just appear in his door to tell them if they can take care of three +20 kg dogs). In the other hand I can't just escape since I'm poor as fuck and already have...

Wew lad, this one tastes a little different from the typical b8 threads. What did the dogs do that passed off the law? That matters in this situation. Will help you decide between kill dogs and give them away

take them to the vet
