>>2045100 How does owning spiders compare to owning similar size small pets, like a rat? When I was a kid my mothers friend had a tarantula and I thought it was kickass but, unlike most pets what do you DO with them. You can't really train them, you just kinda, look at them and feed them till they die? What is the appeal vs a pet that's more 'interactive'? Also waiting for arthropodmale to show up
How do I get my puppy to calm down around my cat? She always follows the cat around very nervously and shakes like a vibrater with epilepsy. Then proceeds to get frustrated with kitty cause he won't play with her, and gets hissed/swatted by cat. Kitty is a bro so I'm not worried about him, he doesn't give a fuck unless the puppy really messes with him. Is this normal? Can they become best buds eventually? I'm sure some anons here have experience with this
I'm not familiar with /an/ so I'm sorry if I'm waltzing over board rules or something, but I need help
My 8 year old poodle, pic related, recently had to go through surgery to remove a fuckload of stones from his urethra and bladder. Baiscally he had to get his urethra turned around to make a bigger opening for his piss (and remaining stones + future stones) to come out
So now he's using that collar. Since his neck is pretty short he's having trouble drinking water, eating, etc. I need some tips both... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2043057 I wasn't present when they did explain how to take care of things since I was at work. I was told how I should clean him up, but I'd like to know stuff like "how to properly hold him while cleaning to ease the pain" and such
Also I know nothing about how to deal with the cone
when i worked at a ski resort during summer (it as still open for tourists to ride the gondola) there was one spot on the road that they prairie doggies liked to line up along and play suicide games. Every single time a car drove past, they would run across the road all at once. I am convinced they were doing it deliberately for the thrill of seeing how close they could get to the car without going under the wheels. They didn't do this when there were no cars. Only when a car came.

>>2052970 Just think - we might have human to prairie dog translation devices within our lifetime. We have so much to learn from then, and we have so much to teach. If his research is completed then he is opening to door for human-nonhuman communication in general! That's really exciting!
I'm having trouble rising my tank salinity to brackish levels. Trying to treat my guppies for ick. So far I've raised the temperature to 88 degrees and they like it. But some of my fry and two of my adult females are showing signs of severe stress and just sitting on the bottom or near the bottom
I've Raised the salinity to 3 ppt. II've used grocery store sea salt and can't raise it past 3 in the tank despite adding like 25 tablespoons of salt. How much should I put into my 10 gallon tank?
>>2055072 Add an aerotor to your tank. If you havent already done that then your just asking to kill off all your fish. 85 degrees is all you need, I would not go higher than that. The higher the temperature, the less oxygen is available to the fish, and Ich stops reproducing at 85 degrees, with one rare strain able to reproduce up to 92 degrees, but you almost definitely dont have that. The best way that I've found to treat ich is; 1. Raise temp to 85 (in your case lower) 2. Add SOME salt to the tank, definitely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2055077 Also forgot to add.. water changes. Do them often. Like 10% a day. This is really to help counteract the amount of food you should be feeding them. The feeding is crucial, as a healthy, happy animal should naturally be more resistant to disease. That means not only feeding dried food, but foods that are 'treats' and the fish go crazy for like mysis, or blood worms.
Because they grew up with the alternative. They don't appreciate their giant, killing machine fantasy lizards being turned upside down on them. If they don't like them thats fine. I love birds, and I'd be happy if every single 'dinosaur' had feathers but I appreciate the old school raptors too in the same way I do dragons and unicorns. Not just talking about scales vs feathers either but dexterity, almost prehensile tails, wrong posture but it still looks cool, etc.

I'm in the process of being kicked out because I'm gay by my mother. I have a large apple snail and a hoplo (10cm long) in a 54 liter (14 gallon) tank. I'd hate to leave them behind because I'm sure she wouldn't take care of them and she'd let them die. My plans currently are to move in with my faternal aunt, but the tank is too heavy to move, obviously, even drained, and I'm not even sure she'll even take me, let alone me and a fucking aquarium. So yeah...
Anyway, what's the bare minimum a hoplo and an apple... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2052732 >Why is a drained 14 gallon too heavy to move? this one is. I don't have a car or anything to move with anon. it's just me, one or two luggages, a backpack, and a laptop. She'll be home by 10-11AM, I will barely have time to pack my shit up and gtfo before then. And like I mentioned, I'm not even sure my aunt will take me. I'll just show up at her door tomorow unannounced, it's entirely possible she'll say she won't take me in.
Hello /an/ I am scared of spiders. I want to beat this fear I'm thinking of getting a tarantula like pic related, obviously only after doing proper research and getting a proper set up going. I did the same with snakes since i was afraid as well and got a corn snake now i have 3 snakes i absolutely love and aren't afraid of at all. Do you think this is a good idea? How good of a pet will a spider make? Take into account I really don't like dogs or cats or affection seeking pets.
Spider and other animals of same type thread i guess
I'm the guy who advises the clueless dude in this thread >>2052476
I have been keeping tarantulas for a year, there's been a lot of trial and error involved. Google is **not** your friend. But I think they make great pets if you like spiders. They are basically pet rocks except for feeding time, you can catch them webbing, grooming, or drinking, but only if you're pretty much constantly watching. The hardest thing about owning them is you need to make sure the place you're living... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2052745 I'm really liking the overall looks of these Grammostola Rosea I'm seeing at the store I usually buy stuff at. Thing is I'm not sure if i'd be able to handle them as they creep me out a fair bit, but maybe a welding glove would solve that to an extent no? Do you have any care tips toward the species i mentioned? And honestly I'm completle ok with pet rock, its better like that so i can get used to it. Took me 2 months to be able to handle my snake.

>>2052476 look into molting. most dangerous time for a spider. she will reject food for a while prior to molting and will likely molt on her back looking dead with some silk under her body. remove any prey during that time a cricket or roach could actually eat her instead of the other way around. bitch will be a softshell mirelurk all vulnerable and shit
>>2051537 No such thing, dry foods are horrible for cats and dogs.
Go with wet food. Or, if all else fails, just pick a dry kibble that has as little fillers and plant ingredients as possible. Then every morning fill the bowl up with a healthy amount, add just enough water to get it moist, then crack a raw egg over it and stir it up. Let it sit long enough for the dry kibble to soak up the moisture and raw egg.
This isn't as good as a high quality wet food, but it will still help to prevent everything from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I found this cat on the road. It was hit and can't walk. Right now I have it in a box in a dark, closed room. What do? I was going to go to the vet tomorrow. I asked two homes if he was theirs but he's not so no idea if he's stray or not. This is in the country btw.
vid(dot)me(slash)AN3g It was meowing like that all the time I was bringing it home and while I was holding him. He hasn't showed any signs of aggression but he definitely is scared. He hissed once when I checked on him in his box and got a bit close. The meowing in that video is from... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
