Does anyone know what kind of lizard this is? I think he looks like a little ankle but I'm not sure. My boyfriend found him at his job and it's too cold out to let him go.
Hes really small tail to head about 5in long and super thin. I got him some dried flies to eat and water.

Sorry, anole lizard**

If he's native to the land you found him in, then it isn't too cold-he may have been hybernating and you could risk possibly killing him by taking him out of the environment that he knows how to survive in.

If you figure out what type of lizard it is, google a caresheet for it as soon as you can. Best thing to do would just be to put him back near some logs or something that he could hide under so it doesn't freeze his body.

>>2091098
you appear to be right. It looks like an anole. Like the other guy said, if he is native, leave him be, if not, get a care sheet and a proper set up for it.

I'm sorry if this is an over-done type of thread.

My husband and I are getting new carpet and furniture.

We've had two cats for the last six years, and I've always believed that declawing is inhumane. So we tried all of the typical alternatives (spray bottle when they scratch furniture, buying surfaces for them to scratch and encouraging use of them, rounded caps to cover the claws), nothing has worked. They used to at least run away when we yelled at them for scratching the couch/ottoman/etc, now they don't even bat an eye because they know...

Please do not declaw the cats! Especially not older ones, give them up for adoption before doing such a life changing operation. It has so many side effects, some that are even potentially fatal, that I urge you to research exactly what you will be doing to your cat before this operation occurs. Since they are older, dramatic personality change is likely to occur as well, and they will have to relearn how to walk entirely as well. Is having fancy furniture worth causing lifelong pain to your cats over?
While you feel that there is no other alternatives, there is actually...

Well, it's outlawed in the UK on the grounds of animal cruelty. So, is it cruel? Yeah.
>>
>>2091047

I don't want to declaw them. We are getting the couch before they are scheduled to get declawed...maybe they will treat it alright. They know I get upset when they dig in to the leather ottoman we just got and at least seem to avoid it a little.

They have destroyed furniture and baseboards beyond repair, though. If we don't go through with this, we need a suitable outlet for them. I'm not trying to level 'fancy' furniture with my pets' well being, but our current couch is completely shredded. You can't sit on the damn thing without springs popping up from how much stuffing's been pulled out, and it's an embarrassing eyesore for company.

We tried the 'cat run'. Since we raised them from kittens, they fear/hate the outside. They sit down, freeze, and act terrified.

>>2091048

I know. That's why I'm seeking advice for an alternative. There's got to be something better.

My dog often barks on some invisible shit it freaks me, he barks like there is someone but ofcours there is none, is any other person dog do this

It is very important that you provide a large full spectrum UV bulb and replace it religiously every six months, feed a varied diet of greens and veg (consult care sheet for specifics), and keep the humidity in the appropriate range for your species of tortoise. Failure to do so will result in vitamin deficiency and shell pyramiding. And that's bad.

It is also important, if possible, to provide a secure dig proof escape proof predatory proof outdoor enclosure in direct sunlight for your tortoise if...

Also, watch out for wild caught tortoises being sold, especially russian tortoises. You want a captive bred one. Best species for beginner are Hermann's tortoise, Greek tortoise (very active, extra big enclosure needed), red-foot/yellow-foot tortoise, and russian tortoise if captive bred.

I have a kitten who recently got spayed by the local vet, and honestly i think they rushed this and made a mess of her, ive never seen an incision this large, and before the kitten pulled them out (ive never had a kitten be able to pull them out) immediately she had crappy looking stitches, i took her back, said "your stitches sucked fix it" (paraphrasing) and they gave her two even more fucked up looking staples.

Is this normal? Do vets rush female neutering? Can i take her to a different vet for better stitches? What do?

>those staples

I'm very used to surgical glue and dissolvable stitches, which are stitched differently and much less noticeable. Those are average stitches, just different than the dissolvable. The incision would be bigger than normal if they couldn't find everything they needed, or couldn't get it all out with a smaller one. If anything, it would be very small if they wanted to rush. It looks average to me. I think the staples are overkill. Your cat will have to...

hello

i am looking into interesting animals and plants
so if you know an interesting animal or plant, please post it here, tell us the name of it and maybe why it is interesting.

i will start with the nepenthes
i feel the nepenthes is interesting because it sets up the insects by having the sweet sent of nectar, and when the insects go try taking the nectar, they are trapped in acid.

and this is the way the nepenthes lives

hope yall got something interesting to share

I'll join in.

Pic related, "Yareta"

Grows at high altitudes in Peru/Chile in poor, acidic soil and more often on rocks.

It grows so extremely dense that it feels as hard as a rock, or like a hard wood.

It grows only 1.5cm per year, so big patches like in pic related could be up to 3,000 years old.

Elephants, cattle, camels.
You can pretty much ride anything, doesn't mean you should though. You want an animal that is less likely to flip it's shit(and even horses are prone to this) when it's startled and can keep in control if it does. There are people who ride reindeer/caribou but you have to be pretty small and sit higher by their shoulders due to their weak backs. Even the guy in your pic looks like he should be sitting more by the shoulders. Llamas can also be ridden but the weight limit for a person is about 115lbs. So aside from the risks of getting...
