It's some kind of lungless salamander. Knowing where you are in the world would help. I don't know how fun they would be to keep, they will likely hide most of the time.

For keeping them look here, most likely have the same care requirements

FYI, in some places it's illegal to take and keep any native amphibians as pets.

is it true that most of the danger in chocolate for dogs and cats comes mainly from caffeine overdose? kind of like if i gave myself an espresso enema? or is it something else?

the danger to cats mainly comes from being dumped outside.

you know, like most people do, it kinda decreases their lifespan by about 70-90%

No. Most animals cannot process antioxidants properly. The caffeine is just another thing they shouldn't consume.

I know of a couple of multimillionaires. I'm not exagerrating. They won over $40 million in the lottery.

I found out that they feed their two dogs this.

It fills me with rage.

Like, why the fuck can't they switch to raw with that kind of money? They get to live in luxury while their dogs live like they would in the ghetto.

They probably don't know the benefits. And if their dogs are healthy on cheap food, does it really matter?
I didn't know about raw diets until I started lurking here
>>
>>2034288
Ya, be careful with some of the diets here. Lots of them seem like fads, and I would rather not have my dog be a guinea pig just find out in ten years that it wasn't a good thing for them at all.

>>2034288
Dogs on good diets are living 16+ years. Dogs eating trash food live to 14 maximum.

I've been told guinea pigs need companionship.

Now I have a solitary male. He was the only boy out of the batch when a friend's pig got preggers, and she tried to get him a couple male playmates but he rather violently attacked both. Those two get along, but he didn't want to be around anyone - no females, no males.

I took him in a little under a year ago, and I keep him with me pretty much all the time. He's either on my desk or in his cage near my desk whenever I'm home, and has a secondary enclosure that's a bit more roomy for when...

I have no experience with GPs but i can assure judging by his behavior to other GPs and you, he shouldn't need a partner, since you are his partner.
>>
>>2033871
In rare cases there are guinea pigs that should not have a cage mate. I would still suggest getting another guinea pig and having that one live next to him in a separate cage. Also how did you introduce him to the other pigs? If you put them in his cage that might be why he attacked them. Guinea Pigs need to be introduced to each other on neutral territory.

>>2033902
I don't really remember how my friend did it when he lived with her. I got him some stuffed animals that he cuddles with and stuffs into his hutch for me to have to clean later, but the few times he's seen another live pig since then (such as when she had me sit her pigs for a week) he's been growling and teeth chattering from sight onwards.

I think he might be a little psychopath or something, but if he's chill with me I guess it's okay.

Other than the fact that they're bred awfully and their bodies can't support them for more than half the average dog lifespan, sure, they're alright. I'm not really sure if it's even ethical to breed them at this point.

I've seen cases about people getting dead turtles from TurtleShack and other places. Is this very common?

Shipping turtles is perfectly safe.
Ordering them from shitty places like turtleshack, backwater reptiles, etc is the issue.

I've heard LLLreptiles has good reputation, at least with in the tarantula/scorpion hobby. Never ordered from them myself though.

dawww s/he just wants to be close. Poor little animals cant understand why their human hero wants to sit in one place and stare at a little flashing square all day. If you saw an animal doing that you might think it was ill and want to comfort it. Maybe s/he's hoping you will get better and snap out of it.

3 MB,
I would like some help /an/.

I have looked online for suggestions and help but I have not been able to find much due to my dog breeds.

I have a 6 month whippet and 6 month spoodle.
They have grown up together and live together great. They play and sleep together.

The problem occurs when they are let off leash at a pet park to play.


They run and play with other dogs great. No problems except perhaps the spoodle licks other dogs faces and jumps at their faces but in a friendly way. I am trying to get this to stop.

But heres where I need...

I might like to add to be more specific.

The spoodle is very passive and never bites or is aggressive. He will never even attempt to bite or tell off the whippet. Just yelp and cry.

The whippet does not bite in an agressive way. Just imagine dogs running around in circles like they do but my whippet instead of sort of catching and maybe wrestling he will bite HARD on the tail or ears of my spoodle but will not do this to any other dog.

Because of discovery/animal planet and their docufiction bs that they keep churning out.

Because of shitty fake, manipulative documentaries Discovery put out for shark week.
They flat out said they were experimenting with story telling and how to draw in viewers. They also said this year they would be doing more 'facts' and actual research, but take that as you will.

The Discovery Channel took the reality TV show route a long time ago. They had a show about the 'amish mafia' for fucks sake. Just stop watching TV all together, OP. It's never going back to actual educating documentaries that serenade you with their monotone narrators.
