You ever notice that it doesn't matter whether it's a plant you're eating originated from South America or a bird from Asia, we're able to digest and get nutrition from them all? I mean, can we literally eat almost anything living on Earth? Short of poisonous things of course.
Is there an explanation as to why we are able to consume such a wide variety of flora and fauna? If we literally just discovered a new species for the first time in human history, chances are,we'd be able to eat them. Heck, if we cloned dinosaurs, we'd be able to eat... Comment too long.

>>2174417 The DNA structure of the thing you're eating doesn't matter to your digestive system, as its function is to break down the thing you're eating and extract the building blocks from which it's made (nutrients, minerals, vitamins, etc).
Think of it as taking apart an old brick castle and reusing the materials to build something else entirely, like a school. Sure there'll be leftover material that was only useful in the context of the original building, but that can be thrown away.
Why is it that dogs wetter perfectly fine for hundreds, if not thousands of years without vets, but all of a sudden, dogs are mandated to have half a dozen vaccines (none of which they never needed), thousands of dollars of vetinary "care", and suddenly things like rawhide and bones are "bad" for dogs when they have literally never had an issue with it until recently?
Dogs are domesticated, so they always had us to protect them.....also, their life spans are shit without veterinary care, less than a third of what they are with it - If you have ever seen a dog with distemper or parvovirus, you can see why they need shots, that shit is brutal So yes, they can survive with a shortened life span, but it won't be easy, and they will suffer for it
I have a cat raised at home and he went to street about a year ago, a year old. when he came back 2 months ago he was extremely thin and was shaking, having hard time walking and focusing on something. We took him to local pro veterinarian, she said he is dehydrated and might have anemia. They took him and immediately started to give serum.
We left him there, after 3 weeks when we went back to check how he's doing , he was fully in despair instead of getting better, didn't gain any weight, we found him in his case just as we left there,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2174320 First post best post. My rottie girl is smarter than most people's 5 year olds and is less than 6 months. Great hips, great teeth, and great agility. Almost a perfect specimen for the breed. Easily could've been competition-quality but the only thing that made her pet-quality was the small amount of black fur in the tan spots on her paws. Thanks for reading.
anyone ever take in a stray? i'm on a farm and city fags always seem to drive out here to dump their pets so i've seen quite a few over the years. we sometimes take in the strays and they often end up being some of the best pets we've ever had. some just end up running away and we never see them again and others we've had friends take or have had the local shelter come get them.
i don't like the shelter option partly because i know they'll end up sitting in a cramped cage for weeks or even months. i also know many of them will just end up... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2174217 both male so there was no need. despite being on a farm they mostly stay in the house and are walked on a leash. both were also strays, one is a beagle and they of course like to run off hunting. the other is a german shepard who spent quite a bit of time out running with a pack of dogs(never managed to find them) before he came to us and if he gets out tends to also run off for half the day. he actually came back covered in bites once which we assume was coyotes(they have become an issue) so we try really hard to...

Has anyone here ever watched an animal died a natural death in the wild? I mean we all lose cats and dogs, but we always see dead animals in the wild, but I never see them die until yesterday

I was walking my dog this morning in south Louisiana and I noticed this odd couple. What are they? Are the 2 different species that got stuck together or are trying to mate, or is it an extreme case of sexual dimorphism? Sorry for my potato phone camera.
I'm not even close to an expert on bugs and insects but maybe I can help give you direction.
The one with the orange band to me looks like a male velvet ant. I don't have a clue on the other but maybe it's a case of some kind of zombism. I know some wasps turn their prey into zombies to make it easier to bring them to the nest to feed on.
A dog wont starve himself, put the food down in the morning for 10 minutes, if he doesnt eat it, take it away. Do the same at night until he learns that chow time is chow time and you have to use it or lose it.
What brand of food are you feeding? Dogs do not need potatoes or rice. Feed him quarter of a raw chicken once in a while for his teeth and feed a quality kibble like Acana or Orijen.
If he is still... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Last night i was kept awake till daan by these cunts, every time i almost slipped away, a fucking mosquito decided to pay a visit to my ear to remind me that i should be awake. How do i make sure they won't come back in? I have emptied out any pot or Bucket of water that might serve as a breeding ground for these bloodsucking cunts in my backyard, and i have made a bottle trap, does anyone know what else i can do to minimalise the mosquitocount in my room? Also, some tips on what to bait my trap with would be apreciated, i was thinking of as wrath piece of cloth like a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
An please help. I'm a first time dog owner, I have a puppy who is jus over 4 months old. He is about 30 pounds and VERY aggressive when he plays. He barks and growl and bites my feet and hands. I try yelping, moving them away, and running away, and not acting, but he just keeps biting hard, like it's a very animal. I try telling him to sit, or throwing a toy, but it doesn't take long until he is back at it. Please please help.
Unfortunately this is just part of raising a puppy. I spent a few weeks with scratches and bite marks too. Try yelping like a hurt dog would so your pup recognizes that he's biting too hard. If he continues, calmly get up and leave the room for 30 seconds or so - this will teach him that when he plays roughly, the play ends completely.
I'd also suggest looking into puppy classes? That way he can learn directly from other young dogs how tl play properly.
>>2172542 Okay, how about when he bites my hand as I reach for the toy? >>2172546 Thank goodness he'll calm down. He has been in puppy classes (I go with him), for a month or more now. He is one of the most rowdy pups in the class. I'll try leaving when he bites too hard, since I try to yelp like a puppy and he just doesn't listen to it.
found this little fucker on my bed this morning. Now, I'm not afraid of many things but scorpions do scare the shit out of me ever since I saw a friend get stung when I was a kid. Got rid of this one but could there be another one near? Do scorpions hand around in groups? This is the first time I find a scorpion in my bedroom.
Scorpions are very social animals, living in vast colonies of up to a thousand.
They travel in groups called "Excursions" when looking for new places to call home and often leave one or two behind at prospective locations to check the place out in-depth and inform the rest on their way back.
If I were you i'd move out now, before it's too late.
>>2171974 >Got rid of this one but could there be another one near? Do scorpions hand around in groups?
Typically for every one scorpion you find, there are at least a couple dozen more within 10-20 feet of the location you found the scorpion in. After they've laid down their pheromone trail, more scorpions will continue to gather in the area and lay down more pheromone trails for more scorpions to follow.
