Hey all, I need some help in deciphering what kind of snake this is. I found it in my back yard and I'm worried that it may be venomous. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm afraid to let my dogs out, please help!
it looks like an average snake, maybe a water snake? it has no rattle, it doesn't look like a viper, but you could be aussier or something dumb and I'd be wrong it's an alaskan death cobra.
Let your poor dog poop, snakes aren't likely to pick a fight. Especially in spring, she's out looking for a mate, judging by the pine cones.
Invest in a good stick, with a fork, should cost about 3 seconds of your time. carry it with you when they're out, and just listen to them. Learn our custom filthy... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2084393 >Invest in a good stick, with a fork those went out of fashion like 80 years ago. a snake that is too small like OP's can't be effectively pinned with one and a snake too big just gets hurt if you try to hold it down with a forked stick.
Ok, so. My and my BF are going to be becoming home owners in the near future, and I've been looking up some information on owning bunnies, but I figured I might as well come post here as well!
I've never owned a bunny, but my BF had a Rex as a teen that he looooved! I've been looking into breeds, but I'm pretty torn. Looks wise I've fallen in love with Dwarf Hotot's... Basically what I'm wondering is what type of bunny is the most friendly, cuddly, laid back, and chill? Or just any other bunny owner tips and info, ect! (Ps. I don't... Comment too long.

Sup /an/, My cat has been super anti-social lately, it's really unlike him, he runs away from people (including me) when they try to pet him and he doesn't seem to want to play as much as he usually does. When I do start petting him he'll enjoy it for a couple seconds before getting really aggressive and attacking my hand.
When I adopted him his previous owner had removed his front claws. I heard declawed cats can be more antisocial and aggressive, but he's been really friendly and playful up until now.
>>2084116 These videos of slow lorises aren't funny or cute. The slow lorises are terrified and ,most likely malnourished due to the way they're handled in the pet trade. They raise their arms in an attempt to gather enough hormones to get their attacker away.
Sup /an/, I was wondering if any of you knew what animal this was. (Yes I tried Google, you guys are my last resort.) I was about use my new paint brushes I bought a month ago when I pulled them out, and sitting on the brush was this tiny black and orange caterpillar type animal. I only ask because my brushes have been sitting in my bottom drawer for a month in complete darkness. I think I disturbed him because he's crawling around now. I want to put him back in the draw but I don't know if he'll grow into some penis eating butterfly or something. Thanks for reading,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
UPDATE: He's gone into hiding underneath the label, because he probably hates the light. There seems to be tiny specs sprinkled throughout the packet, like tiny ant eggs or something. I'll try and get him out of the packet safely to see better.
Boy. See that row of dark little spots between his rear legs? Those are preanal pores used for scent marking. Only males have those. Also at the base of the tail you can see a slight bulge on both sides, those are his hemipenes.
>>2083838 You just need to look around and check reviews and do leg work. Not all vets are money obsessed bullshit artists. Most are though hence why you need to put in the effort of finding one that isn't. I learned the hard way and now I know exactly when a Vet is being honest or not. It is fairly obvious.
Very true. The vet I used to take my dog to was highly recommended by cat owner friends but I decided to go since it was nearby. The doctor was condescending but seemed knowledgable so we continued going for like a year. Then, just last October, my dog developed some kind of swelling on his chest. We took him in, they took a sample from the bump. A few days later she called me to tell me the results. It was "maybe" a spindle cell tumor and it would cost ~4500 to remove "most" of it. The uncertainty was obviously a red flag plus the fact that my dog was 13... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Besides it being sad not having them around anymore, is it really so bad if some species go extinct, influenced by humans or not? Most species don't make it anyways, and we have already caused the extinction of plenty of animals in the past. Europeans killed most of their megafauna and they did great. Dodo birds and mammoths were amazing, and it would have been really cool to see them today, but otherwise it's not much of a big deal.
>>2083716 I mean if we can prevent a species dying out as a result from out activity, we should. We could probably stop worrying about pandas if china would devote their efforts to preserving their environments more than captive breeding. but with their low birth rate and overly specific and inefficient diet, pandas weren't a very 'stable' species to begin with.
Hey, anyone have zoology or environmental science jobs? Where would you start? Would you get a job in the field first and then go to college? I need to get off my ass and that seems to be the only thing i'm interested in.
It really depends on your life. If you have the ability to go to school without working full time, that is what I would recommend.
Go to school and volunteer/intern in your spare time. If you can find a related job that will be flexible with your school schedule that would be great on your resume in the future, but definitely go to school first.
Volunteering and getting out there is really important. For one, it will help you focus your interests. I started with animals thinking I wanted to work... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
