Hey guys, I have no pets but I always loved dogs.
When I go out to run, I usually spend a few seconds letting dogs lick my hand. They usually let me massage them too. Today I was touching a dog (pic related, the one of the white fringe), and he performed the order "shake hands".

Is this normal for a stranger?

.... When in France, a dog didn't respond to my calls or platitudes then in realised I was in France. It liked being spoken to in French ya see, ou a la bon chien, etc. He went nuts.... Completely unrelated story

>>2115399
.... Anyhow yep this is normal as long as the dog has been trained to be friendly and to not be threatened if you invade it's space. I know of a man who would beat up his dog with a golly wog doll to make it attack black people. Obviously he was a racist, and not my friend.

>>2115399

Its natural for dogs to paw at people especially through a gap in the fence its not really shaking hands.

My dog however would sit staring through you 2 metres away from the fence carefully calculating the threat. Your warning would be low growling and a bark that sounds like muffled coughing. If he is barking loudly he is simply telling me there is someone here and they are no threat.

I had maggots in my kitchen bin on the weekend. I didn't notice until I had killed at least 25 flys with my bare hands. then the mystery of the endless flys made sense. You shouldn't feel bad OP, flys aren't worth any more than the molecules they're composed of. If you hadn't killed it, it would be dead soon anyway just because it's a short-lived vermin.

I don't like killing bugs that can't physically hurt me, personally. Spiders and similar? Yeah, I'll smash them if they're in my house; don't want to roll on one while I sleep and get bit. I almost cried because I stepped on one of those giant millipedes once, though. I've killed plenty of mammals and didn't really give a shit, but the millipede just made
me sad.

Hey /an/ i have the extra money laying around and would like to get a snek. Im looking to spend anything up to 200-300. i have owned snakes and other reptiles before so just about any snek will do besides the venemous or insanely big ones. I was looking at brazilian rainbow boas. What kind of snek would /an/ choose?

Where do you live?
I've gotten a few snakes through kingsnake.com classifieds...You can google most sellers there and find out if they're good people pretty easily.

I would make sure you have a good set up first, which honestly would probably be a good chunk of your budget.
Here is a link to the rainbow boa area on kingsnake.
http://market.kingsnake.com/index.php?cat=62

I would personally suggest avoiding the big reptile sells, like big apple, and especially backwater. Try to find a breeder.

So for enclosures, I know a few of the snake...

I wanted to get myself a pet ball python, but I was wondering if a simple set up is fine when it comes to the enclosure? Most of what I seen are these super complex cages with tons of stuff in it. But most of the "care guides" I've read from local pet stores say simple is ideal.

Hi /an/
Lately, I've been seeing people with dogs, or hearing about people's dogs, and they sound like really amazing, loving pets. I never really considered a dog for myself, but now am wondering if I should adopt one some time in the future.
Here is my situation.

>depressed and have eating disorder, I wonder if a dog would be able to help at all with this
>unsure about housing situation in the near future, I'd only get a dog once it was certain...

A dog will help you with depression definitely

>>2114843
Or the responsibility makes OP hate and neglect it. It seems to be a sort of trend with people who have never owned dogs. Add mental illness into the picture and it shakes up their 'routine' and irritates them.

OP you can try fostering a dog. It's temporary and you'll learn as you go without the commitment of having it during it's entire life unless you adopt it.

You fucking retard, why do you think they're endangered? Logging wiped out most of their habitat. They were well adapted to a very stable ecosystem that existed for millions of years until humans came in and bulldozed it all down. Just because they don't do well in captivity doesn't mean they are "worthless". Go apologize to your friend and admit your stupidity.

Juvenile copperhead, going by the bright yellow tail.

I was at a reptile show yesterday and was shopping around with a friend who bought a cool tiny tortoise. While we were leaving at the end of the show there was a vendor trying to offload a bunch of terrariums cheap. Got an exo terra mini-tall for 40 bucks, but I'm not sure what to put in it. I have between 2-4 months to set the terrarium up before getting the animal, but I'm not sure what to get. I'm quite partial to lizards, and am not particularly interested in any insects. Would a crested/banded/day do well in something so small? Or is there something else...

No vertebrate would be comfortable in that indefinitely. Its really more for Arthropods. I guess one anole or a baby chameleon would get by but i suggest you use it for a mantis, arachnid or other buggo. My amblypygid has same habitat

CH here. We have about 10 colonies, each of which lives in one of pic related (which we have a own little hut for on the farm, immensely useful, can keep tools and stuff in it). I guess it's kinda fun to do as a hobby, but you need to know what you're doing (= visit some courses and read a book), and there are a few points around the year when you have to actually do things (treatment against varoa etc.).

The by far best part is actually getting your own honey. Commercial honey is like dog poop, I've no idea what the hell they're doing wrong.
>>
My dad's a large scale bee keeper. Last time I checked, he was running about 100 hives. He does not do it as a hobby, but as a career. Honey sells really well, but he makes more from the hives and frames he makes. I help him sometimes. It's a lot of work if you are going to do it right, so much can wrong from the weather, to pest, and more importantly, neighbors. Most people are afraid of bees and put out traps and poison to get rid of them.
>>
>>2112259

If you are going to start bee keeping, make sure you do it in a location away from people who aren't understanding. Ask more specific questions and I'll answer if i can. As for bad tasting store bought honey, it's because they mix it with syrup to stretch out they honey. Even if it says 100% real honey, they are still legally allowed to mix so much syrup in it.

I've never kept beardies so I don't know much but the viv looks a tad sparse. Like a couple more pieces of decorative terrain would go a long way. Maybe another hide or two? The tile substrate seems like a great idea though

Oh yeah forgot to mention just finished it yesterday

Definitely looking to add decor but I just wanted to move him out of his small enclosure immediately. Poor thing was looking so cramped :/ main issue was the basking rock which is an absolute need since the terrarium is so tall

And yeah tile is slate! I'd heard good things and looks good too
