Sup guys. I dont know if this is the correct board for this.
I'm totally new at prospecting for gold.
I've found some silver and just a teenie weenie bit of gold.
But i keep finding these black rocks in the quartz rocks i take home.. They always form as cubes. Looks metallic. They are not magnetic. And the oxidation is red/brownish.
Does someone know what it is?

probably either pyrite or pseudomorphs of hydrous iron oxides after pyrite.

check it for gold as well. I think you dissolve in sulphuric acid and then filter? or you can run a straight wet assay using aqua regia or a fire assay with a furnace hot enough to melt iron and silica.

where is your ore from? looks decent.

As you've probably heard, Popocatepetl erupted with Pavlof in Alaska erupting right afterwards. Do you know what this means? It's stress building up and down this stupid side of the hemisphere. Think about it, we've had really large earthquakes in Alaska and Chile for a while now. It's just a matter of time before we get the Big-fucking-One earthquake in California.

Sayonara, /an/als. It's been nice knowing you.

3. Dog farts
4. Praise with fart command word
5. Give treat
6. Repeat

Taught my dog to scoot his butt on command like this.

My rose molted while I was away on spring break... I came back to top off her water before the molt happened, but I am worried the humidity wasn't high enough for her.

Part of her old exoskeleton is still attached to her. It has been there for a few days. I havent done anything to take it off because it doesnt interfere with her movement.

Should I try to take it off? Should I let her deal with it?

Okay I need help. The short story is my cat was getting lethargic and thin so I took her to the vet on Saturday; unknown liver problems and daily IVs were the result. A few days later after no improvement I brought her in again, got an ultrasound and the tldr is I had to put her down as there were no options other than to let her die in misery.

This cat was everything to me, I had her since I was 8 and have never cared so much about another living being nor has one given me so much unconditional love, I'm just lost. I feel physically sick when I think about the fact...

Hey /an/,

I need some advice. I've been slaving away at an office job for the last 5 years and I want to make a change. I've thought about going to school to pursue something in the veterinarian field.

Anyone have any insight into the pros/cons of the job? (ie, vet tech, vet technologist, veterinarian)

Vet student here. Also britfag, so some of this might not be relevant.

I decided to go back to Uni after being a carer. Vet school is bloody competitive, everyone has the grades, I believe you need a 3.8+ GPA as an american, they wanted AAA at A-level for us brits (chem, bio, another science.) You're also expected to have shed loads of work experience, everything from farms to shadowing vets. We had 2500 applicants for 125 places the year I was accepted if that gives you any idea of how competitive...

This, >>2090412 if you're looking at DVM.

If you're thinking about a technician position, check to see what kind of laws and regulations are involved in your area.

I applied for an accredited tech program in my area and they required you to shadow a vet for a certain number of hours before they'd even admit you. I'm fucking glad, because it turns out that I live in a region that doesn't require techs (who are essentially nurses,...

Domesticated and tamed are not the same thing.

>>2090388
I am perfectly aware anon. But considering the Egyptians had them domesticated, I am wondering if anyone still does this. As in, has been breeding them in captivity for some generations and not just catching them wild, or having cubs that are only one generation raised in captivity.
>>
>>2090392
They weren't domesticated. They were tamed. If I breed 10 generations of lions, it doesn't make them domesticated. The Middle East and Asia also had cheetahs and some middle eastern countries still have pet cheetahs as a status symbol.

And no, no one is 'trying' to actually domesticate cheetahs. In North America alone there is only a little over 200 in zoos. They are much more expensive than other big cats. They aren't readily bred, there's a whole mess with how shitty their genes...

What are your thoughts on keeping small monkeys as pets?

I had a small pet grivet monkey when I was younger and lived in africa, but I moved when me and the monkey were really little and we had to leave the little girl behind so I don't remember much other than it growing really affectionate really fast.

I've been researching and apparently its illegal to get them here in Canada, and many people say its cruel or inhumane since monkeys are very social animals and need to be with their kind. However anecdotes from people who have owned monkeys say that...

>What are your thoughts on keeping small monkeys as pets?
No. Not against keeping rescues but just the stress of ripping their babies away from the mothers alone bothers the shit out of me. Monkeys are dumb little, basic humans to me in that while a kitten can be well off without a mother, primates need that nurturing and learning they would get from their family.

>However anecdotes from people who have owned monkeys say that as long is its not a horny as fuck male, they are well behaved animals.
Tell that to all the people who are attacked by primates. They are unpredictable and at the same time people forget that they AREN'T just little humans. Just google 'pet monkey attack' and its flooded with people who never thought their precious baby could do such a thing. No 'reputable' place or primate expert would condone a pet monkey.

I'm not against exotic animals but I rather someone own a tiger than a monkey.

130 KB,
I've recently purchased two marimo moss balls ( one approximately 1.5 inches and the other no more that 0.5 inches) and a 20cm fish bowl for my desk.
I was wondering if there was anything else I could put in the fresh water that wouldn't require a pump- with the water being changed weekly.
I'm open to any suggestions!
Other plants, shrimp etc.
Thank you /an/!

There really isn't any thing you could do to change the water other than pour it out of the bowl or pump it out due to the shape it cannot have a filter in there.

I'm aware of this- I mean is there any other creature I could put in there that's small enough and wouldn't require a pump
Sorry for the confusion

Triops

Not sure if this is really related to this board but today on a walk I found two dead squirrels. No signs of trauma, no blood, just them laying splayed out on the sidewalk within some feet of one another. I've never seen a dead mammal that hadn't obviously been hit by a car or sometime, or was an aged pet, let alone two of them, so I'm wondering if I should be worrying about plague or something.

There's this plant in my backyard that I can't identify. I can't even categorize it as a monocot or dicot plant. I literally have nowhere to begin with, and since it just started growing out of nowhere from store-bought soil, there's not much other information I have to offer. Can anyone help me identify it?
