Why is the Blue whale, at 98 feet, considered the largest animal to ever exist when we know that Argentinosaurus was pushing 130 feet?
27 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
They're counting weight. The largest recorded blue whale was 190 tonnes, but there has been larger specimens that weren't recorded so it's safe to say they can get heavier. Also weighing whales is difficult, because it's done in pieces.
>it's done in pieces.
I suppose you COULD do it that way, but it's probably much easier to just calculate their displacement.
Because largest is about mass.
If you're going by length, a bootlace worm is larger than a blue whale.

No idea what happened to her after that. I still don't know where she got the money for half the animals, but fucking hell, she was terrible. The areas she kept the horses in was maybe, MAYBE the size of an average bedroom; no more than 650 sq. ft outdoors. The "stable" was literally a shed that one horse could fit it. They got in fights regularly. It was bad.
>The areas she kept the horses in was maybe, MAYBE the size of an average bedroom; no more than 650 sq. ft outdoors.

Fucking hell, that's not suitable for half a horse, let alone 4. What happened to kitty?

My mom wants a pure breed. I have two cats that I saved from the street, but I couldn't bring them with me to my new apartment, so they live with my parents. Still my mom wants another purr breed. So which one should she get if she wants a friendly, clean and loyal cat?

>purr breed
What is your moms lifestyle like?
How many hours a day is she away from the house?
Are there lots of people, pets and children coming in and out of the house?
What level of grooming is your mom willing to invest?
What activity level is she looking for?
Do the two current cats get along well?
What are their activity levels/ age?
Does she take adequate care of the cats she has now?
Get a burmese or a tonkinese. Had both. Both really great animals. They even learn fetch automatically when you throw paper balls and very pretty.

Hey guys, how goes your ant keeping?

Have you started hibernating your ants yet? If not you're a shitlord.

How was your season? For those with tropical ants, how is it going so far?

Here is my Camponotus Pennsylvanicus colony I have had since the spring. Caught the queen in my back yard. This picture is from a while ago, and I have more.

So far she is up to 50-60 workers, and about 30 larvae in diapause. Just put them in the basement this weekend. Will probably take them out towards the end of February.

This is the outworld I purchased with the nest, i think it's 4x4x8 if i remember correctly. It's a neat little set up. All these pics are before August this year, haven't taken any new ones yet, unfortunately.

At first I would feed them honey and insects I found around the yard. Mostly grass spiders and daddy long legs(which they seemed to absolutely love). After I bought fruit flies which worked until they all died off. Then I purchased Repti-worms, which is annoying to cut in half. Will probably...

I have been having trouble finding an exact recipe for pet food online. A lot seem to have very different opinions on what exact recipe besides switching it up every once in a while.
Does anyone have any experience making their pets food?
I am making dog food for my two new Akita puppies because I have lost trust in brands since my last dog died from dog food with listeria and salmonella in it.
It would be great if anyone has a recipe where I don't need to buy a supplement.
This is what I have found browsing
Dog Meatloaf with Vegetables
1½ pounds lean ground beef
3 stalks celery (chopped)
2 carrots (grated)
1 apple (cored and diced)
2 eggs
2 slices white bread (torn into pieces)
1 cup regular rolled oats
1 cup wheat germ
6 ounce can of tomato paste
1 cup of cooked green beans
3 carrots (chopped)
1 stalk celery (cubed)

and Guidelines:
10 pounds of dog
2 oz. protein
4 oz. carb
(Or can be half and half, just more expensive)
1/2 oz. (minimum) vegetable and/or fruit
1/8 t salt substitute (this is important; it is potassium chloride)
1/2 adult multivitamin
1t fat
Bonemeal for calcium (I use 1 eggshell per day instead)

Thought tomato was toxic to dogs?
The plant, but not the fruit. (Which is the same for humans, as well.)
Carrot isn't good for puppies kidneys, especially in such high amounts. Adult dogs should be ok tho. That recipe seems too complicated for me, I get a decent kibble and cook groun beef, peas, cauliflower and brocoli into it.

My cockatiels refuse to eat fresh fruit, they only like seeds and dried veggies/fruits
They'll occasionally enjoy some fresh lettuce but that's about all they'll accept to eat
They ate eggs once and really enjoyed it, but I tried making them eggs again and they refused to eat it, like they didnt even approach it.
Why do they like dry things so much?
The lutino's previous owner fed it nothing but sunflower seeds and the other peep was fed nothing but sunflower seeds too in the animal shop I got it

They were kinda abused, especially the peep,...

Just takes time i think. my cockatiel wasnt interested in anything other than seeds until I put him in the run with my guinea pig. For some reason they really like each other, so he started eating grass and got interested in the veggies i would give my pig to eat. he doesnt eat everything every time, but i like to give him a piece of broccoli or something each day so he has the option.
If you can, try to eat the veggies in front of your birds, they seem to like that.
Try eating fruits while he's watching you. He probably will want a piece of it too.

Hey /an/,

I'm thinking about adopting my first dog pretty soon, and I'd really like an adult dog that's out of it's puppy stage. There's a 7 year old lab and an 8 year old cattle dog mix that I'm interested in. However, everyone is telling me that it's more cost effective to get a younger (3-5 years) dog because all of the money for a senior dog will be spend on vet bills due to increased visits. Is there any truth in this?

old dogs are less healthy but young dogs get old later. it'd be cheapest to get one that's already dead.

Adopt a greyhound
eh, I'd personally go with the cattle dog mix if they didn't have known hip issues cause I adore them and older ones aren't so.. well, neurotic

but regardless I think adopting a slightly older dog is great, especially if you don't have a ton of experience in training. the medical costs can be more, but even in older pets it's not likely they're going to get a really expensive drawn out condition. people dont seem to get that most dogs act quite a bit like puppies until they're 3 or 4
