Is there any way to legally import hercules/stag beetles from Japan to the US? Do permits take care of the illegality, if I just want to keep them as pets?

Do your research first please
I bred different kinds of Dynastinae/Cetoniidae/Lucanidae

I don't want to explain all this shit again, but here are a few things you might want to know.

1 of all, if you don't want to breed them or don't have patience, don't even try to get any kind of Dynastinae or Lucanidae

For D. hercules and his subspecies:

Why is breeding them so important? I keep a lot of other insects/arthropods, and Japan or Thailand seemed to be my only option to import big beetles. I'm fine with putting in the work to breed them, I have a lot of spare time, lol. Are you from America? My main concern is if I can even import them.

Legally? No, unless you get a form approved by the USDA. Here is the form you'll need to fill out:
https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/planthealth/import-information/permits

Realistically? Many people skip the form and buy the insects anyways.

I suppose it's not a crisis, but it is a bit weird.

My wife and I had wanted to get a rabbit for some time, but back when we first met, we were living in a succession of apartments, most of whom wouldn't allow pets, so yeah. Anyway, it was pretty silly, but I once got her a stuffed rabbit kind of as a reminder/promise that one day we'd have our own place and get a real one.

We get our own place, get a real rabbit, and "Sam" the stuffed rabbit takes up residence in the attic. One day, I'm going through some stuff in the attic, and Bunford,...

Nothing to be concerned about, it's pretty normal. I'm actually glad he took to the toy like that. Keeps him company when one of you can't. Just make sure he can't tear it up and choke on it.

Hey /an/, /vp/ here. This pic is from a new Pokemon S&M trailer. Theres a new pokemon spotted on the left in front of the human NPC, and we were wondering if you could help figure out what animal its based on.

Keep in mind the game region is based on Hawaii, but that doesn't necessarily mean it has to be based on a Hawaiian native species.

>>2121516

The common ones kept as pets range from very easy to intermediate difficulty. The primary thing with all snakes is to get their habitat conditions correct; correct temperature gradient and humidity, correct decor and ample hiding spots. The good thing is that you can get yourself a tank and heating equipment, fiddle around to get the settings right, well before you purchase the actual animal.

Rough rule of thumb on sizing is a minimum tank size of tank length + tank width = total length of snake, plus a...

Trying not to repeat ^ but yeah snakes are relatively easy (compared to mammals) to care
for. Once you've figured out the correct temp and humidity, basic needs would be:

>Appropriate sized food once a week
>A clean bowl of water always
>At least 2 hides, one in the cold spot the other in the hot one
>Spot clean feces when you see them (1 or 2 poops per week)

It just seems like every person that uses one of these gives their dog 7 feet of leash, which is more than enough for them to cross the sidewalk and attack or try to play with other dogs.

2 KB,
With (chicken) chick, which are precocial birds, I know that they have the yolk inside them when they hatch, so they have something to 'eat' for the first little while.

recently I found a broken egg of a pigeon, which are altricial birds. out of curiousity, I opened it up, and found an almost developed chick, with the yolk beside it connected at the cloaca.

So I wondered, do all precocial birds have their yolk inside them, and all altricial birds their yolk outside?

I've hatched and raised chickens for years, I was always under the impression that the yolk was not inside them but attached to them and that as they feed from it it slowly went away, the same way you are describing the pigeon egg you opened.

How do you guys deal with ticks? I found two on me yesterday but only because for a split second I had a very slight itch in the areas they were located at. I heard dish detergent cause them to come off more easily if you dab some on them though I had mix results, maybe I just didn't wait long enough as I wanted them gone asap as soon as I saw it.

This board is animals and nature, ticks are sadly part of nature. I am mostly asking how to get ticks off of your own body though I guess I can't stop anyone from posting easy ways of removing ticks from pets as well.

No. They are pretty resistant. Neither cold nor heat do them harm. They are driven by scent. If they are on u they go 4 warm places bcuz blood flow. They get anywhere since they also bite birds and can drop off of them. Mostly they get onto while your standing on grass. This is possible on small green spots remember birds. This is y u should check ur feet after standing a while on

Just buy one of those $1 tick-removal tools at your local feed store and pull them off. Make sure to get their heads out. If a big red ring like a target appears around a bite go to the doctor because that means it gave you Lyme disease

Ramón Muchacho, Mayor of Chacao in Caracas, said the streets of the capital of Venezuela are filled with people killing animals for food.

Through Twitter, Muchacho reported that in Venezuela, it is a “painful reality” that people “hunt cats, dogs and pigeons” to ease their hunger.

Like most of you, I absolutely love nature. But I am also someone who loves to know what things are and how they work. It sucks to be in a forest without knowing shit about it. Can you guys give me some good ways/books/videos/etc. that would help me learn what things are--i.e. memorizing the names of species, behavior, all that.
I'm sorry that this is vague, I just want some good methods.
