All right my fellow human beings.
I am looking for a low maintenance pet. Can be whatever (Fish, bird, reptile, whatever aside from insects I fucking hate them). Must be cheap or easily available in the wild (I live in Italy).

Back home there's a small lake where cute little water snails live, I'd usually furnish a small acquarium for them and just watch them reproduce and eat algae but I am away from home now.

Thank you.

What if I went out with a jar, filled it with random soil, made a few small holes on the top of it, dropped a bit of water in there while providing sunlight and waited what happens?

>>2006535
You might get springtails, or nematodes, or some neat fungus. Maybe some cute babby weeds will grow if you are lucky.

There are some pretty garden snails in Italy, they make nice pets. Good for your skin.

Otherwise, I'm not really sure what is easy to find this time of year.

Any vets here? I need some urgent help.

My dog has recently developed an abscess on his right paw between the 2 most prominent toes. This was noticed today but he has been licking at it for the last few days. Previously I'd thought it was a foreign body lodged in his paw, but examination revealed nothing.

The lump is not tender to palpation but it is tender when I attempted to gently express it. No discharge was noted.

Additionally he has developed unilateral protrusion of his right third eyelid, the same side as the paw, most noticeable when he...

The eyelid is much more noticeable when he is not excited. Unfortunately he had decided he didn't want his picture taken without slobbering over my phone.

Usually it covers until it reaches a small portion of the lateral iris but it does not impede vision.

It's strange that it is unilateral.

no, I do not agree.
>>
>>2006225
not really.
it takes a lot longer than one week to cycle a fish tank, especially if you don't actually know how to cycle it. Bettas don't really do that well in bowls. Fish can easily survive 2 days in a plastic bag if the person packing them knows what they're doing.

I don't know about the rest of the advice, but if half the fish advice is wrong I don't know why I'd trust the rest.

They're not. Only captive orangs get that fat, mostly because they are crammed together on very small living spaces, even though they are supposed to roam solitarily.

Pic is a majestic orang male. He's sadly not wild, but obviously still has more space to move about in. Also, bear in consideration that this beast is fuking huge.

Letting a reptile roam around the office isn't a good idea. It's going to get stepped on or distract your employees. It would also be a huge liability if one of your workers gets bit or has a phobia.

Set up a large vivarium with some sort of small active lizards like a steppes runners or curly tailed lizards. If you want something more "personable" get a bearded dragon or a smaller species of tortoise.

When i was a child, i liked frogs so much i wanted to become one as an adult. Then one day i was at my father's house, and my aunt asked about what i wanted to be when i grew up, and i answered "a frog", as always, but she said that i couldn't be a frog but i could be a vet to take care of frogs. I almost cried that day.

"A South African judge on Thursday lifted a domestic ban on trade in rhino horns, alarming conservationists who described it as an 'extremely dangerous move' that could worsen a poaching crisis.

"The government said it planned to appeal against the ruling, which was delivered in the Pretoria High Court after two South African game breeders fought a legal battle to overturn the moratorium.

There's something I don't get. I saw a guy on TV many years ago shooting rhinos with tranquilizer darts and cutting the horn off in their sleep. This was meant to discourage poaching.

My question is that if the only part of the rhino that is worth killing it for is the horn, then why don't poachers or government agents or whatever use tranquilizers? I mean tranquilizers mean more rhinos which means more horns which means more money. It could be legalized so people could get their rhino horns...

This is why I hate pretty much all Asians. The Africans never really killed that many rhinos (or other animals to the point to mass extinction) as much as fucking gooks have. The goddamn zipper-heads will kill anything if shoving a part of it up their ass has a chance of "lessening the effect" of their cold. Hopefully they grow out of it like the colonial Brits and other Europeans did.

Japs are best friend tho

>>2005703
The tranqs would be expensive. And they'd have to bandage and care for the wound when they cut the horn off. Also expensive. The whole thing is really fucked up, anyway. In the end they're still harming an animal, taking it's defense away, for money.
