Hamsters. My sister got two dwarf hamsters, a male and a female for her birthday - they were pretty chill for a while, but recently one of them (the male, I assume) started to become really aggressive. Whenever you try to touch him he tries to bite immediately, and I often hear them fighting and squeeking. The other one is already injured too, and they stopped sleeping together. What's wrong with him? Do we have to just separate them? Or is this their mating ritual?
I don't know shit about hamsters, and it's pretty obvious my sister doesn't either,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I got this baby L caerulea or White's Tree Frog a week ago. I have a >10 gallon tall tank (12lx12wx18h) >live big leaf plant >6x3" water pond >heater >65-80 temp changes >60-80 humidity changes with misting >feeding small crickets every other night

>>2036859 Feeding shouldn't be a problem, they attempt to eat everything. I can't even open the tank without getting jumped. Just get a varied diet of crickets, locusts, roaches, flies, mealworms, etc. The standard vitamin powders work fine.
I've had the oldest one now for over 10 years and I don't keep them with UV. Considering they're nocturnal I doubt they need it.
Why are you getting this breed? Any reason in particular?
GSD's can have a lot of health problems, I suggest you read the Wikipedia article on the breed to start with. Do you have a reputable breeder? If it's coming from some guy who just breeds them or a store, I'd be worried. Odds are what your save in puppy cost will go to vet bills ten times over. You'd be much better off in the long run finding a good breeder who screens for hip dysplasia.
They're also powerful large dogs that require good training and a lot of exercise. You'll want perfect recall and good manners on walks as a lot of people are afraid of GSDs and one nibble could result in a lot of trouble.
Thinking about getting a ball python when I get a job. Currently a Comp. Sci. college student taking ~15 credit hours per semester. I like snakes a lot and I'd definitely be happy to have a snake out while doing work and also just to handle it so it wouldn't be cramped up in the cage all day.
(Specifically ball python things, but I'm sure there's some crossovers between different kinds of snakes): What should I be aware of before getting a snake? How much do these guys cost as pets? Is electricity for the heat lamps a huge issue? Vet costs? How long do frozen rodents store for and how many times a month do they eat? Where should I look to buy a ball python? How old should it be? How do I know it is a reputable dealer? General warnings or tips?
>>2043708 Ok OP, first of all this ain't your blog. But i love my Sausage so i'll share what i have done
Royal Pythons/ball pythons are the most chill motherfuckers on the planet, they will do nothing if you let them, they will hug you if you grab them, and are overall cute as fuck with little hats. They are smooth as fuck, they eat every week or so, they don't really need that big a terrarium, and do great alone. Their shits are nasty and they often poop while swimming. Also bitches to clean up after PetSMart... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2043708 >Where should I look to buy a ball python? Check your local craigslist/newspaper/shelter, or contact your local herp society. Maybe go to a show before you buy to meet some breeders.
>How old should it be? An adult would be easier.
>How do I know it is a reputable dealer? Get to know how the snakes are doing at different places before purchasing one. Ask for feed schedules, issues with past sheds or going off food, stuff like that. Ask for advice on snake-specific forums, 4/an/ is too slow.
>General warnings or tips? Find a good herp vet or exotic vet with snake experience before you need it.
>>2043720 Sorry I am new here D= Don't know the ins and outs of posting
Thanks for the info; definitely helpful. How often should I change the stuff in the cage that I use for a ground cover?
My old elementary school teacher had some snakes and one of them got out in the school. Thought it was a goner. 2 years later it showed up nice and fat; had been feeding on mice in the walls of the school.
I see it as being pointless and a waste of the person's GPA. >Being a vet has a lower status and income >The number of years of studying in grad school is the same though >Job security is somewhat lower than being a doctor >You memorise the same shit about anatomy so it's not like vet school is easier >Both are just as stressful as you need to perform operations and that is gruesome >Vet...

If someone seriously mocks you for that, fuck them.
Of course that doesn't mean you should treat your animal like a human. If you have a cat, consider what a cat needs to be happy. If you have dog, consider it's needs, and so on.
Also nothing wrong with being silly like talking gibberish to your pet. But you must accept that someone may call you silly for it. That may seem to contradict the first thing I said, but it doesn't. Life has the strange quality that it is both the most serious and most ridiculous thing at the same time.
