2headed-snake.jpg
73 KB,
I'm planning on getting a snake in a couple of years, maybe after my cats have aged (one is 4, one is approximately 3) so the snek doesn't have any risks with the cats, or the other way around.
Anyway, I want to know, what kind of snake would you recommend to a reptile newbie? What kind of care would it require?

Snake will have to be kept away from the cats regardless of their age.

Colubrids are generally the easiest to start with; corns, kings, milks. Small boids; Kenyan sand boa, eosy boa. Ball pythons often get mentioned but, due to their eating habits, some new keepers get frustrated with them.

Google care sheets for each species.

*Rosy boa. Not eosy.

>>2023283
Those two animals don't mix well at all. They will need complete separation at all times. If the snake is too small the cat will try to kill it and if the snake is too big the snake will try to kill the cat.

tl;dr version: look into ball pythons and corn snakes and branch out from there

She loves that dog more than life itself...I'm seriously worried for her mental stability once it dies, she freaks out and breaks down if he even so much as starts dry heaving.

Okay /an/, lets talk about the worst mistakes we done in pet keeping.

My worst mistake was buying a bunch of fish because 'they look cool' about 4 years ago and smashing them into a 30 gallon, up to this day only 1 is alive, and it's a plecostomus.

my granny kept goldfish, they were over 20 years old fuggen huge. When she died they were passed on to a family friend with a giant pond.

I wouldn't beat yourself up about it. Fish are deceptively hard to keep alive in tanks, especially when they're young.

Hi /an/, I'm new here and I have a dilemma.

I got a puppy for my girlfriend. Now I know I didn't want to keep the poor thing boxed away for long so I bought him and kept him on hold for as long as I could, which was this afternoon. Any later and the shop would be closed until after christmas, and the christmas puppy would no longer be a christmas puppy. So now I have the trouble of finding a way to keep the pup as a surprise until last minute.

I looked online and the box method was suggested, but that doesn't seem very logical. Couldn't the...

How the fuck do you get rid of fleas?

Consistent treatments and good flea meds. Ask the vet for recommended medicines+house cleansing powders and/or treatments.

You are going to gave to battle them for a while,so the best place to ask is a vets office or the humane society and NOT brush off what they have to say. Fleas are nasty buggers and hard to get rid of.

Cats hork up furballs when they have clots of hair in their stomachs. If appears your cat has yet to consume enough fur to require horking up.

Furballs aren't actually round, they're sausage-shaped from traveling up the esophagus.

Anyone else /fucking terrified of whales/ here?

I literally hate whales, especially these particular orcas. They look like the black and white demon from Avatar: the last airbender season 1. They are huge nightmare predators and I don't understand why humans like them so much, since we're about the same size as large penguins and small seals, which orcas chow down on.

I'm not saying we should do anything to harm these creatures, and in fact I support getting them out of sea world, since I personally can't understand why spectators bring their...

I have the same fear, anon. Though every person I've ever told has called me an idiot cause whales are gentle creatures.

I have always had terrible nightmares about whales/waves. Though I'm not scared of any other aspect of the ocean and grew up on the coast.

The only rational reason for the fear I think is because I went on a whale-watching tour when I was really young and was petrified the whale would slap the boat with it's tail.

They are just so horrifyingly large...
>>
i used to have nightmares about whales
they're pretty scary, just the big ones though
>>
>>2021331
For some reason, probably mostly due to their large size and and the fact that they are mammals living among fishes, whales have gotten a reputation for being "wise, gentle giants", and this reputation is probably enough by itself to make them popular at zoos.

I don't know how many feel the same way as I but animal abuse is something that really drives me mad. I'm not talking about slaughter houses or predators killing preys, I'm just referring to edgy idiots taking pleasure in inflicting pain to innocent animals.
I've seen like many of you some sick shit like ISIS videos or Mexican cartels, despite being disgusted and wishing the worst for such monsters nothing makes my blood boil more than a psycho or an edgy idiot abusing animals for no reason. Am I sick or what?

No I think it's pretty normal to feel this way. Animals are innocent. We often have the same reaction to their abuse as we do to abuse of young children, especially when it comes to domestic species like dogs and cats.
>>
Nah, it's normal. I've never even owned a pet (I just lurk here occasionally to look at cute pics... something about the posters here make me feel warm and fuzzy), but I'm the same way.
>>
>>2020820
well, I often put it this way: few idiots that I met (very rare fortunately) claim that abusing animals is ok since they are not humans. Yet I don't know how much empathy can an animal abuser have towards humans if he can't even respect animals. Needless to say all the animal haters that I met didn't really like humans either. But that's just my experience.

If you're a vegan or vegetarian, do you think that all carnivores should be eradicated and made extinct on earth?
I say this because it would end animal suffering, and no animal ever again would need to feel the pain of being killed by another animal.

There would still be plenty of animals left in the world as all herbivores would still be allowed to live.

This includes animals such as giraffes and cows etc.

Also, assume that the ecosystem would remain stable and not become disturbed by this change.

Every carnivore you kill would save hundreds of animal lives. So yes, I think they all should die.

When I was 7 I was obsessed with Scorpions, and desperately wanted one as a "pet". Hell, I even bought several books on how to keep Scorpions as pets, and did a lot of research (for a 7 y/o). Was it good that my parents never bought me one? Also, should I consider buying one now? I have the money, and will do some research, but I've never had a pet.

Sure, it's not like they're hard to keep.
As long as you're aware that they're not actually "pets" you can take out and play with (or even see regularly), go for it.
Go for an easy to keep beginner species first, get some experience and then, if you still like them, start collecting more species or breeding them.
