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?
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.
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... Comment too long.

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,
It started a couple of weeks ago. These small flies would start buzzing around in front of my computer. I'd kill a couple then the next day I'd have one or two come around again.
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.
I don't know where they're laying their eggs and I don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'll probably get kicked out or more accurately preemptively leave before getting kicked out after getting my ass kicked.
My dad would probably kill my dog as a way to get back at me for leaving but I'll be homeless indefinitely and I'm not sure if I should put her down or try to take her with me my logic being that a vet killing her would at least be more peaceful than him dragging her out back to shoot or killing with a hammer or something.

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.

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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I live with 3 dogs. My dog, the lab mix, barks to get the other dogs attention when the three of them play outside. If the two other dogs are playing with each other and not including him. 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.
He's overall a quite dog. Other than this issue, he barks at... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.

>>2157808 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. Don't hinder your growth as a person because of things that are out of your hands.
>>2157818 >Leaves dog outside >b-but why did my dog die
I Can't feel bad for you.
>>2157808 This i can have some sense of sorrow for. Its things out of your control. Try to make sure that you are the only one taking care of the dog. It seems that the people you leave your animals with tend to care very little and not know what to do when someone else's dog is having problems or takes off.... Comment too long.

The area around the dog's eyes is white. No other animal has that except for humans. Dogs evolved to have the white part from living with humans for so long and looking into our eyes. Isn't that beautiful?
Visible sclera (the white part you are referring to) is found in many other species, not just our domestic canine, and I'm 99.9% sure it didn't evolve from "living with humans for so long and looking into our eyes."
I think you need to stop reading every facebook article you see and taking it as gospel.
wtf is wrong with my cat this is how much dead hair I brush off of him every single day and despite that I still find hairs on my furnishings, my clothes, my person I can't take it any more and I'm seriously considering getting rid of him help
Do you guys have/ever had any pets with weird habits or behaviors specific to them?
My germen shepherd would always eat bees. She was obsessed. She's chase after them and snap at them, shaking her head with her tongue out when they stung her, then go for another one. No idea what was up with her.
>>2156928 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.

>>2156375 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?!?
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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
