>>2246546 Anyone over the age of 10 can tell you evolution is a gradual process - of course there's no direct line in the sand where we collectively became humans (not implying that we're all even anywhere near the same point currently, with our current understanding of Neanderthal/Denisovan/etc introgression). Don't pretend to be retarded anon.
I never post here so forgive me. Just wondering if anyone here has ever owned a red claw crab? I just got one and here he is eating an apple. He loves apples and cucumbers. Just need some general advice on how to keep these little guys as healthy as possible? I've googled the basics i.e. Tank, water, food requirements but has anyone here got any more advice for someone who has never owned an aquatic creature until now ?

>>2245708 >tfw I felt bad that you gave him food because it prolonged his shitty existence It's not your fault though. Is your idiot brother willing to give it up to be sold/adopted out or at least see why this is so fucked up and why he doesn't need to have him? Does he live close enough where you can come maintain his cage and care for him? Are you even willing to do that?

Anyone have a lot of succulent knowledge? I picked these up at a local nursery on the clearance shelf. They were just labeled "Sedum sp." I think they are both Sesum adolphii cultivars. Maybe one is just Sedum adophii? Anyone?
i have the one on the left. forgot what it was lol. surprised its not dead because i've had shitloads of rain (its currently sitting in a 1 inch puddle) and its barely gets any sunlight but still seems to be growing. succulents are fucking tough
So Brave Wilderness did a video where he got stung by the Tarantula Hawk, and writhed in pain like a baby. It's meant to be the second most painful sting in the world behind the Bullet Ant.
The thing is, there's a Ceremony some remote village in South America conducts on boys, where they have to wear gloves full of Bullet Ants, and get stung repeatedly for 20 minutes. There are videos of it on Youtube too, and they don't seem to be screaming.
My question is: Are Bullet Ant stings really that painful or was Coyote Peterson exaggerating?

I'm pretty sure they drug the kids so they don't feel it as much.
Plus there's huge social pressure on the kids to endure it, and native tribes are tough as fuck in general.
>>2245259 The entire point of the ritual is that you're not supposed to cry out or you fail to become a man. It's also expected that you repeat the ritual multiple times, so at some point they probably start getting used to it. Coyote might be exaggerating a bit, but Tarantula Hawk stings are pretty goddamned excruciating, so i'd imagine that for a bullet ant to get their rating they'd have to be on a completely different level.
Boy or girl? If girl, is she spayed? Is it hard or soft? Honestly it looks like a miscarriage to me, but it could be anything from a kidney stone to expelled puss from an infection to regular discharge. Either way take it and her to the vet.
How do handlers cuddle and play with big cats? Is the protocol to raise them from infancy and don't be a sperg or make any sudden movements that will get you killed from triggering predatory drives? Should I just find a cougar kitten and treat it like a house pet? You've all seen the videos I've referring to, it's like a big cuddlefest. I want that. (Maybe raising it vegetarian helps?)

I'm going to be as brief as possible because I'm going to bed in 5 seconds but my sister had a budgie die a few years ago and since then we've both seen it flying around her apartment several times, usually at night when there is just barely enough light to make out shadows we see the unmistakable silhouette of a budgie flying across the room, though I also saw it once in the morning when there was plenty of sunlight coming through the windows
Oddly, while the original bird that died was solid yellow the ghost budgie I saw that morning was snowy white.
Hey /an/ I'm looking to purchase ONE giant African snail because having two poses too great of risk for breeding. The problem is I'm in the United States where GALS are quite illegal. How should I go about getting one? And please don't say "don't because they're illegal" I've really done my research and made up my mind, I only want one and I have no plans of ever letting it outside my house, any help?
Along with phasmids, it isn't unheard of for fish and game to show up at your door for posting things like this online. They don't give a shit about a lot of animals, but these guys are not one of them.
You'd probably have to be lucky and just know someone though. These guys aren't in demand enough to have some weird black market or whatever really
Well the guy is an asshole for shooting such a famous bear that a lot of people loved when he could have shot a different one no one cared about. But if he got his permit legally and is authorized to hunt he's not really at fault for anything other than being an asshole.
I live on a corner lot with a large fenced in front yard and no back yard. So naturally my dog spends his outdoor time in the front yard, where there is constant walking traffic right in front of my house.
The dog will follow the pedestrians all the way around the fence barking and screeching at them like he's being tortured
How do I keep this fucker quiet when people walk by? He's a little poodle mix
>>2242565 This or shock collar. I've also heard that filling a tin can with rocks or marbles and shaking it near the dog works as a deterrent, just do that every time and it will associate it's bad behavior with terrible noises.
>>2242485 There is a difference between chicken meal and chicken by product meal. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.hilarywatson.com/chicken.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwjBwbKWoN3PAhUErD4KHQWzCzEQFggjMAI&usg=AFQjCNEPw_kJRGJBz-3zxA59yFVDEMcR9A&sig2=QX7ffuoiKN4ZCZQUFta5WQ
well guys, today is my Bday, but ive been running all day with my doggy, she just had an injury and her leg bone is out of place, the tissue that glues both bones is no longer doing it work so the bone no longer stays on its place. i was given 2 options, short versions are 1) put a nail to put the bone on its place 2)the other option, they cut a piece of the head of the bone, and let it grows new bone and new tissue so it can be joined more naturally
btw, the second option its like 1/3 of the first one's price
have you guys heard of thst procedure?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Today ill order pizza and go netflix marathon while little doggo stays on my bed next to me... she will even get to eat the pizza's borders that she loves :D
she was really scared yestarday and even trembling, but now she feels better and has a better mood, seems happier, even that she cant use that leg (its on bandages until we decide on the surgery and get the money)
>>2240787 Yeah I had one bitch, and her first heat wouldn't start although she was almost a year old. Then when it started at last other bitches in the park got angry for some reason, they were barking at her and she was very scared and then the leaves and the branches on the ground just began moving and the park lamps started flickering and turned off. Things like that happened whenever she got nervous or scared. Fucking scary shit.
You talking about their aggression issues? One of my in-laws has a mix and he straight up eats cats and other small animals alive. Great with kids, strangers, anyone who will pet him, just eats smaller creatures and they can't get him to stop.
>>2211337 >Hooves are like diamonds (not the best comparison but stick with me). Really hard and tough. Things are gonna have a hard time scratching them and wearing it down . But, if you put to much weight on them they'll fracture and break very easily.
..No. Whether a horse needs to be shod depends more on the surface it's worked on than the weight it's carrying. A ranch horse that does fine barefoot on grassland while carrying a 200 pound rider might start getting split/cracked hooves when carrying a 100 pound rider on roads. Carrying/pulling extra weight certainly contributes to wear, but not nearly as much as working horses on hard surfaces, the effects of breeding for size/strength/whatever over hoof strength (the mentioned example of TBs is a great one), excessive grains in their diet, or the fact that domesticated horses are often stabled or kept in limited grazing, which means less steady conditioning on dry grassland and more exposure to damp or muddy conditions that cause weakening of the hoof wall.
I also don't think many people who have ever trimmed a hoof would make the comparison to diamonds in texture, you can't usually carve down a diamond with a knife and some nippers. Hooves are hard, but they're not glassy/brittle, they're well-evolved to function as shock absorbers.
Hey guys, I know it's hard to tell through pictures alone, but can anyone tell me roughly how old this lil guy might be? He's just under 50 lbs and is a pit bull terrier mix. I have pictures of his teeth which I'm hoping helps.
The first time I ever saw a "freshwater" moray eel, I could swear it was an Echidna nebulosa because I clearly remember thinking "How the hell are they keeping E. nebulosa in freshwater?", but now I can't find anything about them being kept in freshwater and the ones I see are clearly different species. Could I be confusing memories?
>>2246362 >>2246363 Well I know that part. But I could swear I saw at two different stores E. nebulosa kept in freshwater and that that was the species I first saw kept in this way. That's why I posted this, because I'm trying to figure out why I remember this when I can't find any evidence for it. I mean it's a very specific memory about thinking this is insane that you can keep E. nebulosa in freshwater.
