Anon, I'm calling on you to prove evolution to me. Not a Christian, or a creationist of any kind, I just don't want to take a theory as fact before thoroughly researching it, and discussing.

Remember that a scientific theory is not the same as the regular definition of theory.

Note well substantiated, no guesswork here.

Genetic relationships between organisms, changes in the fossil record over time, transitional fossils, common biochemistry between organisms are some of the facts...

The cats gone missing before, there are still past signs up. I've messaged the owners when I've seen it hanging around a local creek-walking trail and busy road.

And now tonight I saw a new sign up. Some people don't deserve pets.

Any of you guys know where a simple man could find some moth eggs or cocoons suitable for hatching and releasing in the Pacific Northwest/Washington State? Easy maintenance is preferable, they would be my first bugs.

Hey /an/, fa/tg/uy here.
I was wondering if anyone on this board could help with a project I'm currently working on, I'm looking to build a Lovecraftian horror that isn't just copy pasted Cthulhu or one of the other Elder gods, tentacles ad nauseum and for that I need some interesting/terrifying creatures to base it off of.
I'm thinking of going for a more brightly colored, shallows theme, something that would dwell at the bottom of an estuary or reef rather than the depths, but obviously putting interesting sea life into google just gives you a dozen...

How do animals know what food is?

When I drop grapes or pills on the floor sometimes, my dog doesn't so much as look at it. Out of curiosity I tried to get my dog to go after a dropped grape once (wasn't going to let him eat it) but he wouldn't even try. But when I drop a chip or some meat or whatever he's all over it like a tiny vacuum cleaner. What gives?

Picture unrelated, old wizard.

Is using nitrous oxide (the laughing gas the dentists give you) a good alternative to using co2 to euthanize rodents? It can kill the same as co2 does but presumably it would have a calming effect that would leave the animal feeling much nicer. Plus, I've heard co2 can really irritate their lungs and nasal passages.

CO2 makes up around 0.4% of the atmosphere. Death is not something that will be completely humane, unfortunate reality.

>>2088283
yes, it's fine.
CO2 causes a choking sensation before death. It's one of the very few inert gasses that actually hurts you when you suffocate on it.

pretty much anything is better. Carbon monoxide, nitrogen, helium, whatever.

I need to figure out which fish is killing my neon tetras and why.

I have a 55 gallon tank and the guys at PetSmart said the water is fine.

I have a 4" pleco, 4 2" glass catfish, 2 fancy guppies, 1 molly, 1 platy, and had 7 neon tetras.

I came home from work yesterday and the biggest tetra was dead, stuck to the filter with a bite taken out of its abdomen with some scales missing all around its body. I figured it died of old age and the pleco was scavenging it.

I came home today and only 2 of my tetras were swimming around. 2 others were...

How do I stop my stupid relatives from breeding the dogs

It's a fucking madhouse in here lately. My grandmother has two unspayed females. My mother (with the rest of her litter) just moved in with her and brought her unneutered male. One of the females started her heat a few days before she moved in which brought the second dog into heat recently

>before you say it, no one wants to pay or put in the effort to get the dogs fixed.

Does this include yourself? Because given the situation, if you think you could get away with taking the male to be fixed (there are usually many low cost options at shelters) without being kicked out or something else extreme, I'd say it's worth pissing them off to avoid puppies.
