I like my dog; he's soft, clean, quiet, and makes a good foot warmer.
Pretty indifferent to other dogs unless they are being destructive or obnoxious.

I used to sleep outside in a sleeping bag all summer since our house didn't have air conditioning. Barking dogs were my nemesis.

In a similar format to another post in the cat thread:

Cons:
-slobbery and drool everywhere
-Smell weird
-Don't clean themselves
-More annoying/harmful than cats when untrained or poorly socialized
-Many genetic health issues in purebreds plus pugs, Bulldogs, similar exist
-/an/
-self proclaimed "dog people"
-Require more upkeep in some areas than cats
-Some could/would definitely kill you

Pros:
-Trainable
-Can take places easily
-Bros generally
-Temperaments more predictable because purebreds are more readily available than purebred cats
-Come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and temperaments
-Working dogs
-Can actually be trusted outside in a yard without running away
-Cuter young that don't look like upset gremlins in fursuits

What is the largest crab you can realistically keep as a pet? I'm looking for something bulky like a rock crab, but nothing too spindly or flat like spider crab or blue crab. It also needs to be something you can get in the U.S. so coconut crabs are out of the question.

If you invest in a bigass saltwater setup with a huge chiller you can get sheep crabs or dungeness crabs at asian markets.
If you want freshwater, you can sometimes find african mud crabs also at asian markets.

Dungeon crabs look promising. Not sure about sheep crab, I want something that won't mind being taken to my back yard to play in the mud and eat dead squirrels.

OK, here's something I wanted to ask /an/.

So as it turns out giant squids are actually pretty chill, not vicious monsters, but total bros when swimming with Japanese divers. What about the colossal squid, though?

There was a story about a submarine getting "clawed" by a squid - most likely a colossal one, nowadays it's well known that Architeuthis does not have claws -, is there any truth to that? And does anyone have a source, or details on it?

Thanks for any help.

>Tell me your horror stories.

I unknowingly walked between a mother turkey and her chicks and she attacked me.

In Belize we camped by a river and some sort of spooky bugs set up shop in my rainjacket and swarmed all over me the next day and they were so flat against my skin I couldn't brush them off easily.

I caught a bluegill once and the hook lodged into a ball of parasitic worms which came out of the bluegill as I was lifting it out of the water.

Fisher.jpg

I was once charged by what I believe to have been a fisher.

It was night time and I heard some light rustling, which quickly changed into the sound of something running towards me. I turned on my flashlight in the direction of the sound and saw that only a few feet away from me was an angry-looking medium-sized animal.

When the light hit its eyes, it turned and ran.

I've found two baby spiders in my house so far. Where there are baby spiders, there is a massive terrifying spider mom

Considering I live in florida, it's possible it's a huntsman and I really want to get rid of it as fast as possible

I'm deathly afraid of spiders and REALLY don't want one that big in my house, positive aspects of spiders be damned. I just can't handle it.

How can I find the mother so I (meaning my friend) can relocate her?

I used to be afraid of spiders. If I saw one in my room at night, I'd have to sleep somewhere else
But spiders are ok. They want to just have a little corner they can feed from. Once they find it, they'll stay there.
They won't bite you or jump at you as long as you don't disturb it.

>Where there are baby spiders, there is a massive terrifying spider mom

I'm not sure that's the case. I'm not a spider expert but I think most spiders do little in the way of maternal care once the babies are born.

Remember Charlotte's Web? The baby spiders just went their own way.

Not saying you should necessarily use kid's movies as a guide to how life really works but I think most spiders are like that.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

>>2056526
I know this to be true, and my rational mind holds it as true

but my irrational fear is forcing me to live my own personal hell until I find this spider, if it hasn't died. In which case, I now have a couple hundred of its children to deal with.

>>2056531
The logic I was trying to get at is that there had to be a mother spider close by to give birth to the little shits/lay the eggsac, they didn't look older than a couple of days

Repotting edition.

Apparently you're meant to do it early spring before the tree wakes up but seasons don't mean shit anymore so my tree grows when it likes. Looked pretty much like pic related so hopefully I did it more good than harm. There was sand and bits of gravel in its old soil, it was weird.

Discuss anything aquarium related here, including inhabitants, decor and issues.

Google is your friend.
Feel free to ask questions but know that there are a lot of resources out there that could answer your question a lot faster and accurately than /an/.

Make sure to include these things in your post before asking because we can't help you if we don't have the full picture:
-tank size

You're both colossal faggots. Any dog that's healthy, friendly, and isn't bred to be fucked up like dalmations, gsds, pugs, bullies, double merles, teacups, etc. is a great fucking dog, regardless of being a mutt or pedigreed.
