Jumping spider, maybe won't hurt you, and take a better picture man.
>>
>>2159267
It's a salticid.

It will harm you if it bites you, because bites usually involve puncturing skin.
The pertinent questions are "will it bite you?" and "how bad would a bite be?"
The answer to the former is "no, you idiot."
The answer to the latter is "less than poking yourself with a needle, unless you're fucking dirty as shit in which case you'll get an infection from your own gross skin like 90% of all 'brown recluse bites'"

Sup /an/ . i basically have nowhere else to ask this but im hoping you all can help. Pic is my spiderbro, nacho. Somehow my gfs cat got onto the shelf i keep his tank on and knocked it over. I woke up to an open empty tank. Id like either a way to lure spiderbro out of hiding, assuming that he is, or definitively prove the cat ate him. I fucking hate this cat and miss my spiderbro. Help me /an/. Youre my only hope.

Fuuuuuck. Odd question but if i watch the cats stool might something pass?

I don't know if you guys can tell by the name, but I love foxes. I hear how they are hard to take care of, but I still wish to own one, I came to the conclusion that I would keep it outdoors, and not indoors, so it can tear up the yard, and not my home. Idk, what should I do?

If you actually love foxes do not try to own one. Volunteer at a sanctuary.
>>
Not a good idea unless you have the funds and space for it. They are called wild animals for a reason

So do all foxes a favor, and just dont impulse buy ok?
>>
>>2158030
You could look for those russian-bred foxes that are domesticated in a sense, but still would cost you 5000$ at least

Rather look for a sanctuary as >>2158034 pointed out or get a dog.

Who the fuck walks into an animal shelter or goes to find a breeder and thinks, "yes, this one breed that is responsible for 75% of fatal attacks is the animal I want to cuddle with."

To be fair, you can do the same thing for akitas, GSDs, rottweilers, and huskys.

They're really good at weight pull and drafting.

This. I love chows despite their aggression and I plan on getting a GSD puppy for Schutzhund.

Please help. Found two of these guys on the street. One seems injured. I'm not sure what to do before I take them. I want to feed them something in the meantime and I want to be sure.

What do you mean by "on the street" and why do you think the other is injured?
>>
Not to sound like an ass,
but you should have let nature take its course.
>>
That's a fledgling, they're not supposed to be in a nest any longer. it's too big. It's parents are out looking for it, and they bring it food and feed it on the ground.

Put it back where you found it ASAP and you better HOPE the parents are still looking for it. Because if they assumed that they are dead and moved on, well, then it's 100% your fault they died. So I hope you're proud of yourself.

Don't. Parasites, mites, disease, you know - all that good stuff.
Grow plants from seed in baked soil if you really need them.

Hey everyone. I just bought two Guinea Pigs, Keisuke and Ryosuke, and I saw a few online guides on how to take care of them but /an/ tends to come up with really good tips on how to tend to pets. What are certain things I should do to make sure they're happy and healthy? Are there speciic foods I should focus on, or avoid? Can they be fed mostly on rations or should try to balance it out with vegetables? I read that they like carrots and bellpeppers, and so far I had success trying the former. I also cut pieces of a big fleece sheet I had stored around and made some soft zones for them to rest on, including a comfortable nest of sorts. Any other tips, advices, anything?

As far as interactions went, Ryosuke (the black one) is pretty amiable and has been accepting of carresses and treats, and doesn't really seem to be all too nervous about touching or even being moved around. Keisuke on the other hand seems to sort of freeze up, staring blankly while making purr-like noises when he's being caressed. It's hard to tell if he's scared shitless or enjoying it and just happens to be too quiet for his own good. Otherwise, both have been eating and drinking regularly and are adapting to their new home.

Hey man, I've had a guina pig back in time but it didnt last long. Anyway, the lil guys like carrots, apple and many more vegetable. With that they tend to poop a lot and it it up again but it's normal. Make sure they drink and eat regularly, if they don't it's a bad sign.

They're top tier cute and fun to play with so have fun with them !

Cute guinea pigs. The left one (keisuke?) looks very fluffy
