So my ball python struck at me today when I was changing her water, seeing as she's never as much as hissed at me before it seemed odd. Her mouth was closed which tells me it wasn't a feeding strike. I handled her yesterday and she was fine, poking around doing what snakes do. Two things it could be.

I'd been trying for ages to get her to move onto rats and she finally took one last feeding. I guess I handled her too soon afterwards, normally 2 days is enough but she was jumpy and sat still and hissed. I put her back immediately and left her for another...

You're probably worrying too much.

Likely scenarios:
1) Your hand still smells like rat
2) She's gravid and thus pissy
3) She's about to go into shed and thus pissy
4) She didn't like you messing with her environment (reptiles as a whole get stressed out when you mess with their surroundings)

As long as snooter looks healthy, she's fine.

Thanks a lot. Thought I was but its reassuring to know. She has grown a lot so may well be due a shed. Didn't think about her being gravid, she did look big though. How do I know if this is the case? Do I need to do anything special? I was told I don't and I don't intend to breed so I wasn't planning to.
>>
>>2040652
I should've specified that 'gravid' means pregnant, as in full of viable eggs. If you haven't breed your snake to a male, she shouldn't be pregnant.

Of course, if you got her from a pet store where co-habitation is common, she COULD be pregnant.

These are the signs of a BP being gravid.

1) Scale separation
2) Wrapping around the bowl upside down (belly up)
3) Going off feed
4) Unusual color contrast (her darker scales will seem darker, lighter areas will be lighter)
4)...

Hi I just got a Schnauzer-Chihuahua mix from a shelter. She's a rescue, and she's been pretty shy, and therefore kind of nervous so she's been chewing on her fur. I noticed this spot on her, and then I found two more. I don't think it's from her chewing on the fur, because there's one directly behind her head. Is it mange? Should I should I be concerned?

Schnauzers tend to have dry skin. It could have to do with that

I did, and they said it could be allergies or mange, but the test for mange came back negative

>>2039913
I don't think it's gone to shit, i mean yeah they don't have the personality that Matt does but he does have a family and a whole other channel he has to film for.

Honestly the fact that they have more staff is good for the animals and Matt's cause. Plus it gives us more time for PEW PEW PEW!

Also I'm pretty sure he has to constantly be on the lookout for Creepy Cooter so that probably takes time away from him being able to film vet ranch.

tl;dr: yes you're gay for matt.

Why do we euthanize pets?

Unlike humans which can commit suicide, animnals have a much stronger will to live than humans.

Animals also can't consent to euthanasia, can you imagine how betrayed your pet feels as it realizes you took it to die?

No matter how much pain animals are in, they never opt for suicide, they are programmed to live as long as possible.

Shit's just fucked up in my opinion, peopel being selfish because they can't take the pain of their animals when the animal CAN take its pain.

rest easy anon, pets are not capable of feeling betrayed or realizing somebody took it to the vet to die.
>>
I agree. If the animal would suffer so much it would rather die then we'd see animals committing suicide but we dont see that do we. Thus it's natural to assume animals rarely if ever suffer so much they would rather die. And what right do we have to decide for them?

Hi! I live in Louisiana, and green anoles are common. I found one half an hour ago in my apartment. Normally, I would just put him outside, but it is 54 degrees outside right now. If I put him out now, will it kill him? I think being in here is stressing him out, because he is turning brown (a sign of anole stress). Should I leave him in here till it hits a decent anole temperature of 65 (around 2:30 pm) or can I safely put him outside in a sunny spot?

put him in your basement or attic if you have one

chances are he came in the attic through a vent stack and found his way around via hvac ducts

Not OP, but another louisifag. There are no basements here because of flooding and OP said they live in an apartment, meaning they probably don't have an attic

I'm in Louisiana as well. I've actually never seen one of these guys.

can verify lack of basements. We got people who have their houses on stilts, though. That's just as cool, right?

Hello, /an/.

I don't often post here. And I am sorry if I annoy anyone with a thread like this.

About two hours ago my dog died. He lived with my parents, about 200 miles away from my place, so I wasn't with him. But the last time I saw him, two weeks ago, I said goodbye properly, since it was certain he would be gone soon. He was 15 years old, half blind and weak, didn't hear so well anymore, and, well, his hindlegs were barely functional in the end.

This is the last photo of him that my brother send to me last tuesday's eve. I don't...

He probably lived a good life. And he lived until his natural limits. That is how nature works.
My previous dog died not from natural causes which is a sad thing. He wasn't always loved and he didn't get to live to old age. Be happy yours had a full life experience.
>>
>>2038017
I know. He lived as good a life a dog could wish for. But it's sad to know him gone. Especially since I couldn't be with him that much the last four years.

What happened to yours?

I was about 15 years old. Dog was about 7. He was ignored almost all of the time. We were pretty shitty owners. He only ate leftovers, old bread or nothing at all. As my father put it: If the dog does not eat mold bread, he is not hungry. Walking him out would be at best once a day for 10 minutes. The last 2 years of his life as i matured a bit i started to really appreciate him. Sneaking food for him, taking him with me wherever i go, petting him regularly. He learned some tricks and obedience. In return the little...

Hey guys, my 14 year old buddy won't eat any dry or wet food. It started about a month ago and has just gotten worse. He won't eat any dry, and will just lick the gravy off wet food. I worried it was his teeth but they're fine. I got to the end of my rope and bought rotisserie chicken, and cut it into cat size bites and he licked the bowl clean. I even gave him a bone and he ate half of it. Why won't he eat at least wet food? Why turn up his nose until I cut him fresh chicken? I'm not opposed to feeding him fresh, how many more years has he got anyway,...

Hey, /an/. Anyone know what this is? There's a few at my house lately and I've never seen them before. In case the picture quality isn't very clear, it's basically some big yellow fly-thing with green eyes. I've been ignoring them, but now I'm wondering if I should get rid of them.

Yeah, I just found it right now. Thanks for confirming it, though. Definitely looks like the picture and apparently they like some purple flower just like the ones that my mom got as a gift last month. I guess there were larvae in it. Am I right to assume that they're not a threat to me or my stuff? Can I just keep ignoring them?
