Why wouldn't a frog? I'm sure a frog can at least get angry or annoyed. I don't think it can love something, nor do I think it'd be sad over something but anger seems like a pretty universial thing.

What's the purpose of a Unicorns horn?

I mean they can't use it offensively can they? I'd imagine they'd snap right off and just be horses after that.

Unicorns live primarily in dense enchanted forests, heavily populated by fey creatures such as brownies, gnomes, sprites, and faeries. As such, their horn is polyfunctional.

When navigating through the underbrush, unicorns will use their horn to push aside brambles and vegetation, thus preventing injury to their pristine shit-eating features.

To understand the unicorn-horn's most astounding feature, however, one must look deeper.
Like all enchanted creatures, unicorns have deposits of magnetite...

any of you have experience with getting a dog from a reputable breeder? i've started looking into getting a corgi and it's getting overwhelming to even think about. as a broke college student i thought i'd put it off until i graduated but to even be put on the waiting list i feel like i need to have a house with a yard or something and previous dog experience and it's really disheartening.

why don't you want to rescue a corgi?

>broke college student
>no house with yard
>no previous dog experience

a breeder would be well within reason not to sell you a puppy, even after you've graduated. will you be getting a 9-5 job? how will you pay for vet bills after you've paid for the puppy? what will the puppy be doing all day while you're commuting and working? who will take care of it while you're gone? why SHOULD a breeder sell to a kid with no money and no means to take care of their dog?

it's not about experience with getting a dog from a reputable breeder. it's about having the means to take care of a dog, which you don't have and it sounds like you won't have for a while. you need to be in a position where you can actually take care of a dog before you even start thinking about getting one.

Oh God, I don't know how I should explain this.

I bought two keets from my neighbor last summer, we wound up with two girls. Everything was going well until a few days ago when I noticed one egg in the nest box I placed in their coop. I knew Guineas don't lay year round, so I was interested in seeing how their eggs were. When I got home from work today, I noticed one of my girls was walking funny. I picked her up to have a closer look at her, and I discovered her vent had prolapsed. I was fucking horrified. I didn't to prolong her suffering, so I put her...

Hey! Looking for anyone with rat knowledge at all.
I recently picked up three 11 week old female rats from a breeder. At least I was told they were all female.
One seems to have a suspicious bugle at the base of the tail (that wasn't noticeable the first two days I had him/her) is it possible the rat is female and in heat? Or still just growing? Only weighs 84 grams and is tiny.
If male I will be going down the route of neutering, so my second question is how safe is the procedure? Sometimes you hear horror stories about rats going under.

All advice is...

i just got my rat neutered and it's not as easy as i thought it would be. he was pretty miserable for awhile. and now after 6 weeks he developed a sterile abscess which is pretty common with neuters. he's going to the vet tomorrow but idk, this whole thing sucked.
>>
There's already a rat general you could've posted in.

You would definitely know if they were male by now. It's likely an abscess, tumor, or similar. There's really nothing you can do about it besides taking them to the vet to determine if it's malignant or not.
Also, don't neuter small animals unless you have to. It really isn't worth the money, is pretty risky, and it puts a lot of unnecessary stress on the rat.

How can they fuck up snipping off some balls that bad.
One of my rats got sick and his cage mate ATE his fucking balls overnight.
Woke up to a limp and wheezing rat with a bloody hole on his ass.
He fucking recovered and lived to 4 years in all.
The psycho cannibal ended up snake food after he mangled another rat's hand out of nowhere.

Does anyone here actually work in the nature? If so, what is your story/job? I work with fisheries, I have been in the discipline for about 10 years, started off as a deck scrubber boy for my home state and then moved all over the country to eventually become a salmon fisheries manager, after much school/hard work. Quite fulfilling, work and grind all year while screaming/fighting with people over biology/politics in order to have peace for ~2 months sitting on the river watching the Chinook/Coho jump home for joy/babies.

I work with animals, but less so with nature. I work at an animal shelter. My job responsibilities are endless, honestly. I do anything from being a janitor, to management work, and get paid a nice minimum wage +$0.27 yearly (price of living increase). I do sometimes deal with wildlife, but it's mainly holding onto them until I can get a rehab (by law, we aren't even allowed to hold the animals but I do), cremate roadkill, or euthanize an injured animal. I have a ton of stories, mainly sad. But this job has...

I work with nature in two ways: with my professional job as a mapper/cartographer and part-time as a pet sitter (which is arguably nature, basically just domestic animals).

I like what I do but the road up the food chain starts to sound like a lot of politics. I've mapped gas pipelines, seasonal bird populations, fish runs, and some other stuff. When it comes down to it I just like maps and data for the most part.
