Post coyote pics here. Bonus points for interesting coat colors.

(Pics of pelts/taxidermy acceptable, but pics of live animals preferred.)

Despite their poor reputation, I'm rather fond of coyotes and enjoy hearing them yip/howl at night, and the occasional fleeting sighting of them is awesome. We have a lot of coyotes in my area but they're very elusive and shy so it's a real treat to get to see one.

Who /fish/ here? Freshwater and/or saltwater. Best hobby ever. Where I fish regularly is freshwater. We go saltwater fishing about 2 times a year.

Redfish, bass, catfish, and the occasional snapper are what we usually catch most of the time.

What does swordfish taste like? Do you have to prepare it a certain way. Asking because I know sharks are ammoniated and have to drain and be thoroughly cleaned. Do they have a similar issue? >>2022108
Me either man. I love fishing when it's warmer. I'm in Houston. We usually go to lake Livingston or Galveston to fish on the weekends.

Is pet insurance worth getting?

My 15 year old beagle just had to be put down today and my parents just spent like $750 2 weeks ago on lab work and some medication/shots because he had a setback with his back and suddenly yesterday went into organ failure

He had a few major vet issues over his years. He had the thing a few weeks ago, his spleen removed a year and a half ago, and a similar back issue 3-4 years back. Luckily, my parents are well off so they were able to afford these surgeries.

I'm just curious if this is actually worth getting for your...

Depends on the cover, depends on the pet and it depends massively on how much income you have.

As a rule of thumb I quite like owners having it for at least the first two years, as if anything massive is going to crop up (e.g hip dysplasia, elbows, anything that requires long term medication) that's genetic it's likely to crop up in the first few years of life.

After that, it's down to you really. Personally, I put the money we would have spent on insurance in a savings ISA that if...

Hey guys I bought a turtle for the first time as a Christmas present and he won't eat his pellets :(

If you understand the responsibilities needed to take care of one, and you follow the correct liscences, and you aren't keeping a pet of an animal in any sort of endangered status, why SHOULDN'T you be allowed to keep an exotic pet, like a Skunk, or a Raccoon, or a Fennec Fox, or a Coati, or something else in that caliber?

Well, you don't like irresponsible owners of dogs or cats, why is this any different?

/an/ generally doesn't seem to care about people keeping exotics if they understand and meet their needs and have realistic expectations of what the animal is and how it will act. It's just that those people are the minority and rarely come to ask /an/ where to buy a wolf cub from.

I just broke with my girlfriend because she brought three abandoned puppies she found on the street. She wants them to give them for adoption but currently we already have 4 dogs and 9 cats and I can't stand the possibility of becoming more of an animal hoarder. We already changed our lives for living with the animals so they could live well but I just couldn't take it anymore. I don't know why I'm posting this, maybe for some support, maybe to tell me I'm an idiot. I love her, but I can't deal with the sudden appearances of abandoned animals. In...

Generally, it isnt.

it's fine.

Most houses in 1st world countries are built to support a king sized waterbed or better.

if you're worried, just put it next to a load-bearing wall. I'd be pretty comfy putting anything up to about 500g on my second or third floors. I'd probably put a 1000g if it has a big enough footprint and goes right next to an exterior wall.

My cockatiels refuse to eat fresh fruit, they only like seeds and dried veggies/fruits
They'll occasionally enjoy some fresh lettuce but that's about all they'll accept to eat
They ate eggs once and really enjoyed it, but I tried making them eggs again and they refused to eat it, like they didnt even approach it.
Why do they like dry things so much?
The lutino's previous owner fed it nothing but sunflower seeds and the other peep was fed nothing but sunflower seeds too in the animal shop I got it

They were kinda abused, especially the peep,...

Just takes time i think. my cockatiel wasnt interested in anything other than seeds until I put him in the run with my guinea pig. For some reason they really like each other, so he started eating grass and got interested in the veggies i would give my pig to eat. he doesnt eat everything every time, but i like to give him a piece of broccoli or something each day so he has the option.
If you can, try to eat the veggies in front of your birds, they seem to like that.

Try eating fruits while he's watching you. He probably will want a piece of it too.

I think you get the idea.

My question: I just started having odd vomiting that came suddenly and went away entirely when I vomited, no other signs of being sick, then it happened again after drinking some more tea.

My CAT also vomited at about the same time I did, but he rarely EVER vomits, like hasn't vomited for at least a year. We drink water from the same tap. Could that or something else be making us both sick?

Sounds like a troubling health issue, yet you come to the slowest board for advice...I hope whatever it was killed you and your cat by now.

Did your cat see you puke? Seeing a person vomit can make someone else do it too, your cat's body might hit the eject button in case he ingested the same gross thing you did. It's like contagious yawning, dogs can catch yawns so maybe cats can catch pukes.
>>
>>2017776
He may have, I think he really may have. This happened late at night, so I watied till this morning to do anything. His vomit was not abnormal looking, just his kitty food spit up, no blood or lots of hair or anything. I feel mostly better too. I am taking him to the vet if he vomits again though, vet's idea. So you really think he could have been sympathetic vomiting? I know people do that, I think the reason is survival oriented:

because leaving your dog outside ALL THE TIME is a shitty thing to do, but having shelter for them when they are outside for whatever reason is a good idea as a back up option

Caterpillars have legs but pupae don't.

It completely baffles me. Does it just disattach its legs along with the skin or what?

If I caught a caterpillar who is going to metamorphose soon and skin it would I get a pupa with legs?
