About a month ago I bought my first fish tank. I've been unemployed all summer and was looking for a pet I could keep without my landlord knowing. I've really enjoyed having them so far but I've noticed guys on fish-keeping forums are some of the most obnoxious pet-owners that I've ever come across. So what type of pet-owner does /an/ think is the most obnoxious?
For me it's people that own fish and anyone that insists on dressing their dog in ridiculous costumes.
So I recently bought a 10 week old Shiba Inu here in Japan(husband got it for me for my birthday). Ive absolutely no experience in raising or training dogs properly. Back When I lived with my parents, we had the entire household to contribute to raising our dog and they still have bad habits. I'll be raising the puppy myself for the next 2 months and I need to be steered in the right direction as far as how to discipline this dog, rewarding him, etc. My Japanese Vet says we are not to take him outside for walks until he's had his last shot that's scheduled 3 weeks...

>>2209947 >Disciplinary action for peeing in the house the dog is NEVER going to understand why he is being punished. it'll just be a random beating to him. great way to start off your relationship with him, really builds trust
>>2209782 Used to have a squirrel feeder at my old place, the kind for dried corn cobs, the idea was to give them something to keep out of the birdfeeder. All it did was leave a huge mess behind and brought even MORE of the furry fucks out to empty out the birdfeeders.
Tl;dr: the squirrel population does fine without our help. Plant a live oak if you want to feed them.
No, but the squirrel in my house eats all the spilled food corn cobs and nuts and all that my parrot spills. It even comes into my house, but runs away as soon as I come anywhere near to offer anything for it.
My parrot on the other hand is terrified of the squirrel and runs into my room if he comes.
Essentially I've a live in squirrel that scares my parrot from time to time.
Is there xylitol in the muffins? If yes, find an emergency vet ASAP and call them and tell them you have a potential case of xylitol poisoning. If no, monitor and keep an eye on her. If she keeps eating and continues to pass over the next few days, then nothing to worry about.
That's why Animal Planet is giving his stuff? I caught some this morning but thought that was just normal for the channel. Apparently it's a marathon.
I had surprisingly bad taste as a child and didn't like Steve. I never understood the appeal of his show. I wanted animals, not someone talking about animals. As an adult though he is very entertaining.

Do slugs feel fear (mortal terror) when people suddenly appear (out of their houses) and they walk on the path to step on them and crush them to death to the point where entrails come out of their behind? I stepped on a slug (accidentally) the other day coming out of my house, and I still feel like disgusting garbage. Seriously, I can't get it out of my head.
I don't think they are capable of very complex inner life.
This was interesting, simplified I'm sure but can't help thinking about logic gates >A study, published in 2016 in Nature, has shown that in air-breathing freshwater snails of the genus Lymnaea Lamarck, 1799 goal-directed decision-making during the hunt for food is performed by just two neuron types. Through measuring the action potentials between neurons, the researchers found that just two neurons were able to come to a complicated form of decision making. One neuron... Comment too long.

I can only assume that the dogs got into a tussle and the owner didn't punish the dog in front of the black guy. The black guy clearly could have walked away from the situation, but his hood mentality is still with him. Goes and kicks the dog.
Don't worry, the dude will go to jail for something else soon. I'm sure of it.
My cat died yesterday. I don't know why. He was 6, healthy. He had regular vet care, no health issues that we knew of, he just died in his sleep at 6 years old. He went peacefully, but I'm still fucked up about it. It came out of seemingly no where.
Wasps are always yellow and black right? I've been seeing more and more honey bees getting stuck on buses and passengers freaking out about them being wasps. It's sad because the poor things keep getting squished .
>>2166111 I don't know, don't have much of an experience since the one in the picture is my first and so far only pet turtle. Trachemys grow pretty big, especially females, but there are other acquatic turtles that stay a bit smaller.
I have a 14 year old border collie, her name is Molly. I found out from the vet recently she has a tumor, most likely from her jaw bone or possibly her thyroid. There's nothing they can do. Right now she isn't in pain, but I don't know how long it'll last. My dad (she lives with them, can't have dogs where I live currently) just called me in the phone saying she's fairing worse, talking about putting her down.
So /an/, I'm getting my first dog soon, and I'm wondering what I should feed him. There is a lot of different advice on the internet, and I'm looking for your opinions.
At this point, my plan is to follow my gut feelings, and feed my dog as closely as possible to what he would be eating in nature, and that is, raw foods, mostly meat (beef, chicken necks, etc) and some liver, maybe some other organs too, all human grade. I'll also give him some bones and petshop chewables for his teeth. I want him to be very healthy and to live a long time, with as... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2210518 Most arboreal slings don't require height until they grow a bit. I use pic related for pretty much all my slings, but if you want to give them height you can also just buy little plastic food storage boxes in supermarkets, or any leftover containers of that sort. Try something like this: thespidershop.co.uk/32oz-round-tubs-p-2764.html
Looks like you want something more geared for observation/display though.
hey guys i have a serious but stupid question ill admit im painfully insecure before i ask i fucked up my hand and can't walk my dog right now so my dad's been doing it for me but im worried she'll choose him over me or respect me less as her master because of this is it actually an issue or am i just being crazy? i also get super worried if he plays with her or pays too much attention to her, is this also an issue?
>>2210277 they've been giving me opiate painkillers so i don't trust myself to be able to hold her back when im like this?? i live in a city and she pulls a lot so im trying to take safety precautions before i had no problem walking her 3 times ( that's almost 4 hours!!!) a day
Religions say hell is a place of fire and brimstone (sulfur). It just so happens that life at the bottom of the animal evolutionary cycle lives around sulfur spewing volcanoes at the bottom of the ocean miles below the surface.
The photograph above is of hell. The hell described in the Bible is a real place on earth.
It is the most hostile environment where animal life is found on earth. If you go to the bottom of the evolutionary cycle, the beginning of the cycle, you go to a place like the place described as hell. A coincidence?
Most of the popular descriptions... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Giant tubeworms: Many descriptions of hell mention worms. Giant blood-red tubeworms eat the bacteria that live around the volcanic vents. The bacteria actually live in the worm’s gut, in the belly of the beast, in a symbiotic relationship with the worm.
Giant Blood Red Tubeworms The blood-red tubeworms pictured above grow up to nine feet long and can be over two hundred years old. These animals live in total darkness, miles beneath the surface of the ocean. Even the color is exactly the color of the mythical devil.

I need help, i just feel terrible. I have two chihuahuas one is one year older and bigger that the other one. The older chihuahua sometimes gets agressive with the little one, i always try to stop her but she never really does, also its just for a few seconds so i cant really stop it, thought that was normal since she came first into the house. This time i heard the little one crying really loud so i jumped the little fence we have to keep the inside the house and i tried to punish the older one. Maybe i was too aggresive or too fast. At first i thought the little one had a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I feel like a monster. The little one was always afraid of people. It took some time to get her to play with me. She's always happy to see me but when i try to get close to her she start to walk away with the tail between the legs and then she lay on the floor face up. Not always but she do it more often if the older chihuahua is not arround. Always made me feel a little sad but right now the older one is doing the same thing. What can i do? Am i over reacting?
we all smack our pooch around every now and then. if theyre not neutered then neuter to halt the aggression. if they are fixed then they simply were not meant to live together and you might have to rehome one of them
What types of pets do you want to keep in your life? Do you stick to only one type like dogs or snakes or do you want many?
Personally, I am most drawn to rats and dogs but I want to keep different types. Let's say I keep pets until my mid 80s, I have several decades worth being able to keep animals. Most pet animals don't last over 2 decades after all. I want at least one corn snake, two ferrets, two Budgies, maybe an iguana, some pigeons, maybe a guinea pig, and a cat by the time I'm a senior. I also want some barn animals like horses and goats but that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have cats and dogs right now. They are all shelter mutts/moggies, so one day I would like to see what it is like to own a purebred animal. I am thinking I would get a Maine coon and a German Shepherd (working line ofc) next. I have also only ever gotten adult animals, so raising one from a kitten or puppy would be a new experience for me as well.
As for other animals, I'd like a bird, lizard, and an aquarium one day too. I'd lik3 to see what it is like keeping and taking care of these guys.
