So, this poor bastard was in the yard this morning. No wounds of any sort that I can see. Looks healthy, well feed and doesn't look like she's all that old. Any one have any ideas?

I found this birb on the floor inside the other day and it wouldn't stop following me around for ages.
It didn't seem to mind being picked up or anything. It wasn't injured either.
I put it on a tree 50 metres from the property and it straight away flew right back to my veranda.

Eventually my stupid friends put it in their car while I wasn't there and drove it to some beach like 20 minutes away because

Found this weird worm/larva/leech in my lily pond while cleaning out oak/maple leaf sludge. It was pretty cold when I found this guy, which may be why it wasn’t wiggling much or anything. It is grayish in color, and roughly an inch and a half long. There appears to be teeth/anchors on that face-like… part, and I have no clue what those dark spots are.
Seriously, what the hell is this thing?

Would it be unwise to get a very active dog breed like pic related if I live in an urban area?
I live in Chicago, and while there are plenty of dog parks and even a dog beach, would the dog be satisfied with living in an urban area? I also make regular trips (1 or 2 weekends a month) to Michigan, which allows for stimulating activities like long hikes etc.

I think Dalmations have some of the worst eyesight of all dog breeds, and need to be exercised daily and explore. As long as you walk it daily and live in a place that has enough space for it to roam, it should be fine. I know there is a theory about the size of dogs and spaces they live in like a form of claustrophobia, so some people that live in apartments don't get big dogs, but I had a black lab and lived in a two room apartment and he was fine for the years we were there, and that was in Washington D.C....

Looks like a ball python morph.
Anyways best snake is either a corn or a ball python, you'll probably have more luck with a ball python.

>>2047799
that appears to be a blue eyed leucistic ball python. it is an expensive morph of the regular ball python.

snake recommendations for beginners; I recommend colubrids (corns, milks, kings) or the small boids (rosy boa, kenyan sand boa). ball pythons are kinda fussy to deal with for a first snake because of their humidity requirements and also their feeding reluctance.

So, you have to build a mini zoo as an attraction for your city. You must exhibit five different animal species of any kind (including extinct ones), with at least one bird, one reptile and one mammal. The other two can be whatever you want. They all will be friendly to you and will never attack you.
Which animals would you exhibit?

Pretty sure they aren't illegal. But there's a ban coming soon to the USA (on the 28th I think) and imports from non native animals and inter state trade will be banned. So try to find someone in your state who breeds salamanders, and go from there I guess; you won't have luck in any other way.
