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

Yeah pretty much. Just look at them and watch them grow, build their webs, redecorate, and feed.

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

Keep introducing them casually, and keep on doing your daily routine, showing that the cat is a friend by showing affection, etc.
Like with most things involving pups, its all about repetition.

I wouldn't go out of your way to get them friendly with eachother, it kinda just happens naturally from my experience.

Alright folks, I have a problem

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...

A quick image search makes me think that you found a Giant Grey Moth friend if you're in the UK.

The bit dragging behind its abdomen is confusing because the picture is hella blurry. My guess is that it could be one of two things.

1. Moths of that size and type make cigar butt-looking cocoons. Maybe it's quite young and has some material scraps still stuck to it?

2. Maybe it's dying and some asshole bird or bat caused damage to its tiny intestines without properly being able to eat it so those are just kind of dangling there.

The prairie dogs are the animals who have the most complex verbal languages next to humans.

Those squeaks aren't just "sounds"--they're words, with abstract meanings.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1kXCh496U0 [Embed]

Evidence indicates that the different species of prairie dogs speak different languages, and that prairie dogs of one species in different areas speak different dialects of the same language.

This is not mere "communication". They are speaking real languages, with nouns and adjectives.

So far,...

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.

In aq thread I got ignored so

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?

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...

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.

Hey /an/

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...

Why is a drained 14 gallon too heavy to move? I moved a 20 gal when I was a 100 lbs pregnant bitch. If I could do it, any healthy adult with working limbs can.

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.

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...

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...
