I would like to start a population of hamsters in my area. I have decided that the golden hamster is the best candidate. There is no threat fron snek here and they could easily out compete and kill mice. I'm planning on releasing in late spring. What would be a good starting population size to release first? Also, does anyone have any recommendations on other breeds besides goldens?
You may bring one currently existing species to utter extinction, /an/; whether it is micro-organic or multi-cellular, whether it is animal or plant, that species will be gone forever and will never exist again. You may also bring one currently extinct or endangered species back to life, all the way up to "least concern" status in the wild. Again, it can be anything.
My piece of shit parrot just took a chunk out of my finger. I wasn't provoking him at all, the little fucker suddenly turned around and bit while sitting in my lap.
Apart from being a poo shotgun, he is the biggest asshole I've seen. He always grits his teeth in anger whenever I come near him, he bites me, pisses on me, chirps at me. Sometimes he is a little mean to his son, nothing serious though.
What the fuck can I do? His hatred seems to grow with every single day even though I've always been nice to him.
>>2002692 What are you asking for here, do you want to see pics of people's pets? If so you should lurk the catalog. You will find threads where people ask to post your cats, dogs, snakes, rats, and pretty much anything else you can think of. Happy hunting.
Has anyone here had an aggressive chinchilla? No, more than aggressive, plain nuts actually. I've had the fucker for over 6 months now and he hates me more than ever. He is sharing the cage with his son, which is adorable, so he is never alone, he is allowed to go outside the cage 4 hours a day, he eats the best food possible, I give him treats every two days, he has toys, a nice house, he chewed my furniture as well...

My piece of shit rabbit just took a chunk out of my finger. I wasn't provoking him at all, the little fucker suddenly turned around and bit while sitting in my lap.
He also likes to bite and scratch at my clothes, but I took it as a sign of affection so I didn't try to stop him from doing it. Well now I'm bleeding everywhere and that smug little shit is sitting in his hutch staring at me.
What can I do other than cut his balls off? I don't have money for unnecessary vet bills.
You got a rabbit. Give it stuff to chew. Their teeth constantly grow. Maybe that will prevent it from biting you. As a pet owner, when you get a pet, you take on responsibility for it's well being. Neutering a rabbit isn't expensive. Save some money & stop being selfish. Even after the neuter, he could and probably will continue to bite. Some rabbits are just dicks.
>>2002544 He has plenty of things to chew in his cage.
Well now you've just given me another reason not to get him neutered, if it probably won't change jack shit why even do it? I don't see how I'm being "selfish" by not wanting to chop an animal's nuts off unnecessarily.
Am I a bad person for wanting a (mostly) pure bred dog? I'm not about to shell out 4 grand for a certified pure bred dog from a breeder, but if it looks like the breeds I prefer, I wouldn't mind buying a pupper from a third party source.
I volunteered at an animal shelter and it really seems like most dogs there are pit bulls and chihuahas, and although the prospect of getting a "rescue" dog is nice, it's a long term investment and I don't think I would be happy in the end.
>>2002441 If you're gunna be a faggot about it "am I a bad person.. " then get the fucking pit bull to appease all your fellow faggots on this board. But if you have something oh want, go fucking get it. Just make sure you got your shit together either way.
Maybe try a backyard breed. Rescues are great too. I've had two pure bred goldens and one died early on from lymphoma (only 4 years old) and another from don't know what when he was 9. My backyard bred golden lived to 13 with just shoulder arthritis, and finally came down to a ruptured spleen. My rescue is so far the healthiest dog I've ever had.
i know this might not be the best place to ask, but im literally too embarrassed to ask anywhere else.
i have a golden named betty (after betty white. yeah i know), shes 9 months old and she is the sweetest dog in the world. except she seems to HATE black people!!
if were out walking and she sees a black person she just goes crazy and starts barking and pulling the leash. its so embarrassing.
i brought a black co-worker home who was nice enough to try and help me. i wanted him to feed her snacks to see if that would help her calm down. it seemed to be going... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The lab is the UK's favourite dog. The Chinese Crested, bulldogs and the poodle are amongst the least loved.
25% of Britons own dogs; and 25% own cats.
The Border Collie comes in second. The top ranking dogs are mainly mid-sized working or herding dogs, often originating in Britain. The Alaskan Husky is the only real exception, known for its efficiency as a sled dog in North America; the other being the Golden Retriever, a gun dog but still hailing from Britain and Europe.
The dogs with the least positivity (in fact all ten at the very bottom... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't know how much you can really take away from this survey, given that one of the least favourite dogs is the Staffordshire bull terriers (I assume that's whatever the fuck a Bullboxer Staff is meant to be), yet they're one of the most popular breeds. And if you asked a bunch of people which dogs they like most, how many would really bring up their specific dislike of the Miniature Xoloitcuintl? There's probably like six in the entire UK.
My cat has been terrorized by these little shits for the past 2 months. I've given her two rounds of Advantage II and have washed her bedding. They won't go away. How have you /an/ons destroyed them? What did you do?
Wash the cat in a bathroom or something, then keep him/her in that room until you're done vacuuming the whole house. You can let him/her out now, but wear white socks around the house and pay attention to your feet for the next few days or so, and if you see a flea on you, just pinch in and throw it in the toilet or something. Repeat every other day 3-4 times. You can also sprinkle your carpet with fine grade salt, but the above steps should help.
Ask your vet for capstar. From there vacuum your entire house daily (including furniture - fabric or otherwise), flea comb many multiple times daily in quick burts and get rid of the fleas, do full litter changes and wash your litterbox in hot soapy water frequently and wash any cat furniture you have as well as toys often too. Frontline as directed (once a month I believe). Do not stop under any circumstance until at least three or four MONTHS have gone by with no sign of fleas in sight. Keep flea combing once a week to check for more fleas. I got rid of my cat's fleas... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
how come dogs evolved into those different types when there was just the wolf or a common ancestor of him? Like, the difference in size and whatnot, was it all just luck and literal physical retardation that some got floppy ears etc?
Alright guys I need some help and seriously fast, like faster than a fucking gunshot. So Im in Bulverde, Texas. I was lying in bed and suddenly I started feeling uneasy then my dog started growling outta nowhere. So I was like "What the fuck is this shit." Suddenly, not even joking here a growling sorta sound emerged, sounded like sheep being slaughtered. /an/ please help, please please. Im fucking scared for my life here.
>>2002152 >20 litre tank >filter 200lph suitable for 20-40 litre aquarium NO MEDIA
Media is super important for a filter. It's what makes the filter work. Yes, filter media looks like compacted floss. It's supposed to be that way. That said, you'll probably want a 40+ litre filter just to be sure you have enough filtration once the filtration media gets a little clogged up.
How did you start the cycle? Did you use a bottle of "cycle starter" from a pet store or just let the tank sit there? You need to add something to make the cycle start. A piece of raw shrimp will do it. Yes, it will rot there. Let it be!
I take it you're using the colored chunky sharp gravel substrate, right?
