Do spiders have a sense of smell?
I have a spider friend I named Larry living in the corner above my shower.
Today I farted in the shower and I was wondering if Larry thinks less of me now.

What would be a better bone segment to make the base of my 3D model; the bottom of the lumbar, or the bottom of the sacrum? Would this vary between a human and a catgirl?

Also, how agile are tails? Would I need a certain number of caudal vertebrae to be independently controlled?

One more thing: What would be more appropriate to attach the legs to, the top or the bottom of the sacrum?

>3D model
Are you making a figurine to print? A model for a game mod? A model to animate? Depending on your answer, your base will vary.

>Would this vary between a human and a catgirl?
The sacrum? Yes, it is where the tail attaches. Your base will stay the same.

>Also, how agile are tails? Would I need a certain number of caudal vertebrae to be independently controlled?
They are just as flexible as, say, a snake. Rig it with about a dozen bones. Real cats have...

A model to animate, and I'm trying an experiment in model topology where I see if I can get one model to be able to be roughly reshaped into numerous mammals which could save a lot of work.
And by leg attachment, I meant to ask which vertebrae the pelvis follows.

So, the pelvis follows the top of the sacrum? That's incredibly inconvenient, unless I decide to have it so that the base of the model with regards to posing is not the hips. I really don't know where I should have it.

No idea what happened to her after that. I still don't know where she got the money for half the animals, but fucking hell, she was terrible. The areas she kept the horses in was maybe, MAYBE the size of an average bedroom; no more than 650 sq. ft outdoors. The "stable" was literally a shed that one horse could fit it. They got in fights regularly. It was bad.

So I have to take care of a jardine parrot for 2 weeks because a friend of mine is going on vacation. That bird is extremely chill, lazy and doesn't give a fuck. Also tame.

Now I myself own a lovebird who is also tame and very playful. Now I thought taking them both outside their cage and let them meet each other would be a good idea.
Now the other parrot didn't give a fuck about meeting my lovebird, and my lovebird started attacking it.

The jardine was eating an apple so I don't know if it was trying to steal it or attacking.
I just took...

Birds of different species may get along very poorly and even try to kill eachother. Or they may not, but it's best to just keep them seperated... you never know.
>>
lovebirds are known for being aggressive towards other species, it depends on the individual, but generally lovebirds don't mix well...

some birds can though, my green cheek and budgies get along fine (they play together, share food, and can chill on their shared playground no problem), and they're cool with my uncle's cockatiel (occasionally the cockatiel hisses at my green cheek and she runs away, but mostly they just preen each other or sit near each other), but i wouldn't immediately trust any other bird with them, especially depending on the kind
>>
>>2025782
Yeah different species sometimes have trouble getting along. What do you mean by attack?

At any rate it is best to only allow different species to interact under supervision so you did good.

girls are generally quieter than boys... boys will chatter, sing, and try to talk nearly all day whereas girls do that significantly less... but i like the noise personally, and most of it is pleasant (a lot of singing, chirping, trying to sound like r2d2 and saying "i love you" ) and it isn't overwhelmingly loud... though they do make a couple of terrible loud noises here and there, it's not a big deal at all and just kinda funny rather than annoying
