What kind of snake is this?

He was HUGE and kept snapping at the workhead on the crane.

It's a glass lizard, not a snake. Florida has four or so species of them and they can be very hard to find since they spend most of their time in the leaf litter. They're basically a skink without legs.

The neighbour's just installed a chicken coop with about 6 chooks right next to our back 6ft fence and my 6 month old herding dog (kelpie x koolie) is obsessed.

I'm worried about her either jumping over or digging under the fence while we're out to get to them. I don't know if she'd kill them or just try to play with them but I don't want to find out. We lay bricks across fence line because she's made attempts to dig under. She's pretty small at the moment (15kg) but incredibly agile and will grow out a bit more.

She gets...

If they have a coop maybe try to let them sit nearby with you til they get used to them, you know, introduce them in a safe setting. At least that's what I've always heard about introducing dogs to potentially edible animals.

Any cat owners here have experience with swollen paws? I have a ~1 year old male cat (fixed and shots) who primarily hangs outside during the day who came home with a rather swollen right front paw today. During his outside time he's prone to climbing trees and hunting mice, birds, snakes and bees (the latter of which I'm hoping caused this). He doesn't appear to be encumbered by this (no limp, no signs of pain) and it just showed up this morning. Some sources online are saying ingrown toenail, I don't clip his so perhaps this is a possibility?

Thanks

He was a stray who, alongside two siblings, appeared on my property out of nowhere. I took him in and found homes for the other two. He loves being outside and pesters me until I open the door for him, then returns every night and sleeps inside. He even comes when I whistle.
>>
Try to squeeze his paw and see if the claws come out? And see from there? I'd say give the swelling 2 days to go down before calling the vet (this is an arbitrary number based on absolutely nothing btw, if you feel you need to take the animal sooner then do so) IF it does not bother him, and keep him indoors where you can keep a really good eye on him. Call the vet as soon as you notice limping, lethargy, puss, bleeding, excessive grooming, anything out of the norm for him. If it is an ingrown nail, DO NOT try to take it out yourself; it can be very painful, but also the...

I remember during swim practice one of those guys managed to get into the pool. We were messing with it a ton and I think it just swam into the filter or lane line to get away. I already knew not to fuck with them but I thought it would be pretty funny if one of my friends got bit so I didn't tell them about what they were messing with. I showed them the Wikipedia about it the next day and they flipped out. Good times

I was wondering if anyone here may be able to help me out. I know the answer should be "take him to the vet" but im at a loss as they wont do anything at all without all of the money upfront and due to recent financial hardship i cant afford that. My cats jaw has just about vanished, the big teeth fell out and his tongue started drooping out. He still has energy, and moves about as much as before purring and acting like normal. He just has a lot of trouble eating. I dont feel right putting him down as he is but hes having a harder and harder time eating. Is there a...

How retarded can someone be? Yeah, the crow definitely just grabbed the dog to steal him, it definitely didn't eat it.

Also how retarded do you have to be to allow a dog THAT small to go outside by itself, especially when you see there are a bunch of large birds out there.
