My roommate has one of these and it hates the everloving shit out of me. It's cool with him, it's cool with his girlfriend, it's cautious around strangers but it snaps at me anytime I get close. Even if I just put my finger near his cage he starts knocking his open beak into the side of it.

I've never done anything to this bird; in fact, I rarely ever see it since it's in his room most of the time. I just want to make friends with it. how do I do that without losing a fingertip in the process?

Feed it millets

spend time around it without touching it, give it treats, eat food it can have in front of it and offer it some, get it used to you

but also be prepared for it to not like you anyway it sounds like your roommate hasn't really socialized it well

What kind of pet snake should I get? Stuck between a corn and a garter, can I have both in the same tank?

Any general info to know before I get started?

>>2120829

No you cannot house a corn and a garter in the same tank. You can, however, house two garters in the same tank usually without any trouble. They are fairly unique amongst snakes in that they do tend to live in close proximity to each other in the wild.

Corns are quite a bit bigger as adults than garters. Garters have a more specialized diet. Corns do fine on frozen mice their entire lives.

thanks for the legit info, I've done quite a bit of research the past couple of weeks to make sure I know what I'm getting into.

This thread was more of just a conversation starter about first time snake owners. I like smaller snakes and non-pythons.

What the FUCK is this disgusting creature? It looks bloated and nothing like the caterpillars on this plant. Although it's colour is similar to some of the chrysalis, I guess. I can't tell if this thing is dead or alive, parasitised? Is it the same species of butterfly that is on this plant but something has gone terribly wrong? It doesn't look right at all. But it is hiding in a folded leaf like the normal caterpillars do.

This is Bailey, I rescued her from an awful environment. She was tied to a tree and left to die. I wanna keep her and nurse her back to health but I don't have the funds for it. I'd like to ask for help with the vet bills and meds for her. I spoke to a vet already but he couldn't do much cuz I don't have any money for it.

So I was feeding bread to a bunch of ducks, crows and two geese in the park today. The geese started getting annoyed when I was trying to divide it among all of them and started tugging on my leg. Then one of the geese was kind of pointing at the bread and then down on the ground beneath it.

I like birds

Hey guys, today I was letting my African bullfrog soak in the tub to help him shed and my mom came in to watch. She has a thing where she obsessively likes to peel skin and pop zits and she reached in and peeled a big sheet off of him. He didn't budge or show signs of pain but I stopped her anyway. Will this harm him? What should I do to make sure his skin is OK?

If it came right off and frog didn't react I doubt it caused any harm. Tell your mum not to do that though. Frogs eat their shed skin.

I have a pacman frog, pretty much just a smaller version of an ABF. The main attraction to them is usually their willingness to eat, and the variety of what you can feed them. It's a pretty fun undertaking, plus they're fun to look at. Other than that they just sit there all the time

My dog started shaking his head a lot today. I immediately thought ear mites but his ears are perfectly clean and I thought that there would at least be redness if there were mites. I also haven't seen him scratching his ears or leaning his head to a side, just shaking his head.

Should I just go ahead and buy some more drops? Should I worry about transmission to my cat? Do I need to go to the vet before I get the drops?

I just brought both of them to the vet about a month ago where the cat had to have surgery so my savings are a bit depleted. I can do the...

Call your vet for some regular ear cleaner, clean 2x a day until he stops
>>
You can just call your vet for a consultation on what to do. They might just recommend ear cleaner as a first step, or they might suspect something else and want you to come in. There are lots of other things that can cause your dog to shake his had.
>>
If it's just started today, his ears look clean and he doesn't seem overly distressed or showing other weird symptoms, I'd give him a day or two before taking action. It may be something silly like a bug bite or somehow getting water in his ears.

I have often wondered if my lizards would appreciate some kind of thing to look at or listen to. One of my crested geckos has been pointedly staring at the wall across from his tank for the past hour and I wonder, d-do you want to listen to some music or watch tv or something? But I doubt it. He seems pretty content to sit and stare.
