It is cute but it's also just a baby. They get a little rougher looking when they grow up. Fat and sway backed. But I love pigs so I still think they're cute.

>>2004101

They're completely different from cats and dogs. You'd have to meet one to really know what they're like. They don't chew stuff up but they will explore it with their mouth. Their nose and mouths are their shovel/hands. They can be destructive because they like to root but I wouldn't describe them as any more destructive...

Question: What would you do?

My 2 year old pitty was staying at my mom's house. While she was leaving the bedroom, he pushed past her and grabbed a hold of my 18 year old cat. He killed her instantly. My poor mother had to watch her cat be killed. and she had to clean it up afterwards.

So, now we have this dog and don't know what to do with him.
I have found a trainer so hopefully he can learn some damn manners & have a little more self control.

Have you every had experience with a strong prey-drive in your animals? Did any specific training...

Giving the dog to someone else is not fixing anything, it's just handing off a problem dog to someone else. Don't make the dog someone else's problem.

Why do so many parents tell their kids to take care of a fish first to prove they can handle a dog/cat/whatever mammal? Properly caring for fish basically entails carefully simulating an entire ecosystem. Properly caring for a dog entails refilling its food and water and giving it exercise outdoors.

the better question is: is it safe to let my cat outdoors unsupervised where he might get into fights requiring subsequent visits to the vet?

unless you're really attached to the idea of your cat dying young, the answer is obviously "no".

and yes, go to the vet you retard.

I would like to start a population of hamsters in my area. I have decided that the golden hamster is the best candidate. There is no threat fron snek here and they could easily out compete and kill mice. I'm planning on releasing in late spring. What would be a good starting population size to release first?
Also, does anyone have any recommendations on other breeds besides goldens?

You may bring one currently existing species to utter extinction, /an/; whether it is micro-organic or multi-cellular, whether it is animal or plant, that species will be gone forever and will never exist again.
You may also bring one currently extinct or endangered species back to life, all the way up to "least concern" status in the wild. Again, it can be anything.

What two species do you choose, /an/, and why?

My cat has been terrorized by these little shits for the past 2 months. I've given her two rounds of Advantage II and have washed her bedding. They won't go away. How have you /an/ons destroyed them? What did you do?

Frontline. It's a Britfag brand but it worked all the time my mum used it (on the dogs and on us kids).

Wash the cat in a bathroom or something, then keep him/her in that room until you're done vacuuming the whole house. You can let him/her out now, but wear white socks around the house and pay attention to your feet for the next few days or so, and if you see a flea on you, just pinch in and throw it in the toilet or something. Repeat every other day 3-4 times. You can also sprinkle your carpet with fine grade salt, but the above steps should help.
>>
Ask your vet for capstar. From there vacuum your entire house daily (including furniture - fabric or otherwise), flea comb many multiple times daily in quick burts and get rid of the fleas, do full litter changes and wash your litterbox in hot soapy water frequently and wash any cat furniture you have as well as toys often too. Frontline as directed (once a month I believe). Do not stop under any circumstance until at least three or four MONTHS have gone by with no sign of fleas in sight. Keep flea combing once a week to check for more fleas. I got rid of my cat's fleas...

While I cant get into too specific biology because im completely ignorant when it comes down to stuff at that level, the general idea was that this form of reproduction evolved way before they became the species they are now. Millions of years before they were turtle/trilobite-esque animals that lived in large ponds that were created by the roots of plants basically making sections in a large lake. These proto-whistlers would have a hard time leaving their individual ponds and genetic diversity would become a problem, except some...

but >>1965102 says that sex is done between same sex couples, wouldn't that make males entirely redundant?
Unless the males also lay eggs, in which case maybe alpha and beta would be a better definition than female and male, if they both exchange genetical information trough a giant wiggly penis and lay eggs.
Or are groups of males supposed to ninja on females egg laying and spray their own genes all over it?

Let's talk about our century's greatest problem within the eco-minded community. It's clear to everyone at this point, that a militant, zealous minority is hijacking our movement, turning intelligent discussions about the environment and eco-friendly solutions, into troll infested nonsense. They are what SJW-s are to liberalism. They're the dark greens. Yes, that is a jab at their intelligence. The frightening thing is, there are more and more of them each day. Here's a list that'll help you recognize them:

>20 litre tank
>filter 200lph suitable for 20-40 litre aquarium NO MEDIA

Media is super important for a filter. It's what makes the filter work. Yes, filter media looks like compacted floss. It's supposed to be that way. That said, you'll probably want a 40+ litre filter just to be sure you have enough filtration once the filtration media gets a little clogged up.

How did you start the cycle? Did you use a bottle of "cycle starter" from a pet store or just let the tank sit there? You need to add something to make the cycle start. A piece of raw shrimp will do it. Yes, it will rot there. Let it be!

I take it you're using the colored chunky sharp gravel substrate, right?
>>
so I got a little 3 gallon tank and it came with some under gravel filter. Is it supposed to lack any carbon and what not? Its just a hunk of plastic with holes in it.

I put some ammonia into the tank along with bacteria to process it but it has been a few days now and nothing is happening. How long does it take?
