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.

So after everything you just typed you're considering letting your cat outside. People like you, that completely lack the ability to make rational decisions, should be fucking shot.

fuck off retard

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?

>>2041222
they should be fine, they're all usually pretty aggressive.

that's not a lot of fish for a 55 though. And once you put those in you'll have a hard time adding more fish unless you're getting something pretty mean that will break up territories.

>>2041225
Everything I've read is super cautious about having anything aggressive so I'm not sure wth to do. Any suggestions on what to put with them?
>>
>>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...

OP, get this,

People have different interests. Maybe some people have a passion for working with animals and not humans.

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 get this - the anatomy of a domestic animal is different from a human. Crazy right?

What kind of butterfly is this? I've done a few searches and haven't been able to come up with anything. I like its wings a lot.

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

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?

Hell no I didnt
I know that stuff is wrong
Ive got some tightly woven carpet in there, and it never bites at it or anything

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...

Several people out there keep and breed various species that have gone extinct in the wild or are threatened with it. Seems to be the next best thing to do if the habitat can't be preserved.
