So I spotted this guy yesterday. Looks to be a muskrat, and I saw him crawl under my tool shed too so he might be hiding out there.
Anyone have experience with these rodents? I have a house cat, how risky is it to let her outside with this guy around? My cat's not very big, and this sucker looks about 2 feet long. I've read that they can be very territorial.
>>2041754 She's an outdoor cat. She hunts frequently. We have all kind of animals out here and she's never had any problems, but this guy is new so I wondered if anyone had experiences with muskrats and could give me first hand advice on how to deal with them.
But whatever, since you apparently know jackshit I'll just set a trap for it or something.
Sup guise. I'm about to get a 55 gal tank and I've been agonizing over what to put in it. I've settled on: dwarf lionfish, engineer goby, and maroon clownfish (one of each). Is this a fuckstupid idea? Or would these three work in a tank together?
>>2041226 I've kept a lot of aggressive and predator tanks. You just need to keep fish that are too big to fit in anyone else's mouth, and try to avoid fish that prey on other fish. Other than that the sky's the limit.
I've found coral beauties and puffers to be particularly capable of defending themselves. Clown wrasses and harlequin tuskfish are tough as well. Triggers vary, they're all fairly aggressive and some will kill everything in the tank. Snowflake eels are usually good choices. Damsels... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello /an/, I'm looking for silent videos and documentaries about animals & nature. No commentary, just footage, similar to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sirvGWReno Do you have any links or recommendations?
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...

>>2028692 It's just the same though. You memorise the same kinds of shit about lungs, intestines, etc. And geez, working with animals is worse than humans. At least a human being won't try to bite your arm?
So about a month ago Dec. 19 to be exact I got my first reptile Bearded dragon like the title says Temperature gradient and humidity in tank are correct Fresh food (reptile munchies omnivore mix and vitabugs crickets) and water every day But it doesn't eat once a day like a juvenile should And it refuses to get any protein when it does eat In the month that ive had it, only ate one cricket, no meal worms or anything else Used to eat the green beans and carrots but now only eats lettuce and banana Which only happens like once every three days Was...

>>2038564 its limbs look abnormally scrawny, definitely not eating like it should. Might have intestinal blockage, what kind of substrate is in its tank? you didn't give it that bullshit calci-sand garbage the pet stores try to push on you, did you?
Actually I think the limbs of all the beardies at the pet store looked like that if I remember correctly They werent in a very big tank either Smaller than a ten gallon, about half And there was about 10 in there
How does /an/ feel about species conservation? Does anyone have any local species which are at risk, and do you take any action towards their preservation?
The giant freshwater lobsters where I live are under threat partially from poaching but primarily from habitat destruction. I feel like I should maybe do something about it, particularly as right now the local forestry industry is on the brink of clear felling an area upstream of a significant population of the little bastards, and as far as I can tell the measures that are in place to protect them are essentially...

Some sort of Shepherd or Spitz mix. Check in to your local shelter to see if its microchipped. I'm noticing a lot more dogs(who are microchipped) without collars these days. Risky business if you ask me.
/an/, I need your help! I live in Oregon, and right now they are letting the people vote on what will be the official "State Dog" and right now the Newfoundland is in the lead. But it must be the Welsh Corgi! It's in 2nd place, and is only behind by about 700 votes. Help me 4chan, you're my only hope!
