501 KB,
I'm alone in a flat. I live on the 9th floor, so i'm afraid of getting a cat in case of it jumping out a window after a fly (happened to my neighbour) and I just don't get along with Dogs. I want a house pet that is reletively easy to train and isn't all that large. I'm thinking of getting a Micro-Pig because:

A) They're fucking adorable
B) Supposed to be smarter than dogs
C) I hope, grow to be about the size of a Jack Russell.

If anyone owns a pig, can they tell me if B and C are true? And any advice to a budding Pig-owner?

Micropigs will not stay that small. Not unless you plan on starving it so it doesn't have the nutrients to grow

How big do they usually grow to be, then? I found a few sources that said Jack Russell sized, around 3 foot tall, 4 foot long-ish.

>>2085360
Pigs really aren't great pets, anon. I know some people with them. Yes they are cute and fun to rub their bellies but they don't really give a fuck about you, they're independent, destructive and intelligent, don't like to be picked up or messed with, don't really 'play'. It's a one sided relationship and its tiring to do so much for them and have them give you nothing back.


Plus 'micro-pigs' is a joke. You'd be lucky to find one that will grow to the...

Bit of a long shot, but I figured SOMEONE on this board must have done this before...

Does anyone have any experience with making a skeleton? We're in the middle of extending our house at the moment, and I'm getting a huge study with the extension. I'd love a display piece of two to go alongside my desk, and as I'm a vet student, I really fancy some anatomy.

Now, I've got a couple of plastic anatomy figures, but I drive past road kill on a daily basis: how easy is it to make a real skeleton display? I want to make one for my summer project...

Oh, ta! I didn't see that thread: will go and give it a read now. Hopefully some of the people on that thread are lurking about.

I'm with you that it's pretty cool, we have a dog and a cat skeleton (pick related) in our study rooms at Uni, and they're absolutely fascinating to look at. Some of the smaller skeletons we've got at Uni are absolutely beautiful (for instance we've got a mole and it's paws are amazing.)

There's two parts to your project: cleaning the skeleton and articulating it.

For cleaning it, your best bet is to cultivate a dermestid beetle box. Remember to NEVER try to clean bones in hot water, as it drives the fat/grease into the bones and yellows them. Cleaning the carcass is the annoying and tedious part.

Articulating the skeleton with pins and wires is the fun part. It would help if you got a little rotary tool like a Dremel to make wee holes to run the wires and pins.

156 KB,
Okay /an/, if you could have any animal (real animals only, nothing mythical) as a pet, what would you choose, and why?

My choice would be a red fox. They're gorgeous, highly intelligent, playful, soft, and can be trained (not quite as much as dogs, but more than cats).

OP here.

There was a series of studies done on silver foxes in Russia a while back, where they bred them for generations, domesticating them. When the money ran out, they had to close the study, and sell the remaining foxes, who were now basically as domesticated as dogs.

I have an Akita mix currently that is male, and he is called Kobi. But that's a terrible name, don't do that.

Name him whatever you feel comfortable with

Makes me believe you bought this dog for selfish reasons

Beagles are incredibly popular as lab dogs because of how docile and tolerant they are. They are even bred specifically to be lab dogs.

put him back outside and buy a captive bred one if you want a pet snake. kings are cheap anyway and a CB snake will be happier and healthier in captive environment than your wild one will ever be.
