do you think there's some annual report published listing all the contents of various faunas, updated each time something new is described?

actually there is, but it's called Wikipedia.

you know, you can just look at wikipedia as a library of sources that you CAN directly quote from. if the article is written at all decently (as many aren't) it will have sources listed

I'm a level 54 earth wizard, I know the magicks involved with this. You simply must create a mudboner potion which will turn you on and you will squirt lots of joy into the air and also onto Gaia. You will fertilize Gaia with your seed, thus giving it the energy of a newborn baby.

Praise Gaia.

So I got a puppy and jeez I fuckin hate it.

I got all his shots, being neutered in two weeks. Eats blue buffalo premium life whatever bullshit with tons of chew toys and sweaters and chew toys.

IT SUCKS. And I do say NOOOOO and ignore it because it's an annoying pushy puppy.

100% the problem I have and of course I'm not gonna give it away after spending so much but if I sit down he DIVES into my lap. If I go in the kitchen he JUMPS and scratches and gets his nails caught in some of my pants n ruins them.
NO leaving any paper or shoes or cords...

Are you fucking retarded. You should have prepared for this because he's TEETHING, you fuck.
He's a puppy, so of course he'll have to go to the bathroom every couple hours until he's around 12 weeks+. Then he'll begin to learn to hold it.
Teach him the god damn basics you lazy anon. Sit, stay, lay down, shake, and anything else. He'll learn to sit and stay there if he wants something from you because he thinks by sitting you'll reward him.
you MUST puppy proof your house, unless you want to spend thousands of dollars like that idiot...

Seriously, why even own a dog if you hate it so much.

Do your fucking research. Other than that, you should have known how high energy and difficult they would be as a puppy. if you wanted less handling, you should have adopted an older dog. They won't calm down till probably around the 8 month period and even then they'll still be playful.

Practice fucking obedience you idiot. Teach him basic commands and reprimand him and ignore him when he doesn't listen.

I recently bought a whites tree frog and I am concerned about the humidity. The exo Terra brand dial I bought says upwards of 80% yet the tank is not foggy or steamy. Its 18L with a heat mat on the side at a pleasant 22-23 degrees celsuis. He had a hollow log, fake vine, wide flat water bowl and substrate. I noticed he was hugging where the matt waslast night and breathing rapidly but that stopped 20 mins later

Either way, first off, you shouldn't ever get a animal without making a somewhat decent research on it. For the looks of it, you didn't.

18L it's super small. What are the dimensions on it? WTFs are arboreal, so they need a pretty tall terrarium. I would assume anything below 40cm to be bad for them. Ideal day temperature...

No, but I researched them as pets for curiosity. It seems like some sort of sick, cruel joke that they are actually very cuddly and playful. Maybe african ones aren't so bad but I believe north american ones have more barbed quills that hold better than african ones.

They love to snuggle and play. They are like the metal version of a dog! The Africans have smooth quills they use to make a rattling noise and look big, but they have been known to kill lions with poking an artery.

How do you feel about rescues with extremely strict adoption standards?

I want to adopt a kitten some time in the next few months, so I asked my vet about some local rescues. They gave me a few names, but mentioned that one of them required any cat you adopt to be strictly indoors, spayed or neutered, that it would not be declawed, etc. They described the experience as basically being as rigorous as adopting a child, and that they just did not part with their animals easily.

I understand wanting to give a pet a good home, but it just seemed extreme to me. (For...

I don't give a shit. Too many stupid and/or malicious people in the world, they need to be filtered from proper pet owners. They don't do this for shits and giggles, they do it because of bad experiences in the past. On top of that, you, or I, or anyone else on the planet aren't owed a pet and don't have some kind of right to a cat or dog, the pounds/recuses/breeders requirement can have whatever requirements they want.

>>2004300
All this. Tbh I wish they were more strict if it'd keep more shitty people from adopting, but that ends up encouraging bybs and mills when people get fed up with the rules.

Just go to the pound if you want a cat without added rules. Do get it fixed though.

Ok guys so I really need your help. I've recently gotten bed bugs. I have done everything to try and prevent them. I've cleaned out my room and have been battling them for about a month now. I even cleaned my carpet with bleach. I've been using a lot of chemicals and powders. I bombed my room. I have literally scrubbed, put chemicals on, etc on every part of my room. I've cleaned all my clothes, posessions, etc. The problem is only in my room. Everybody else has checked around their rooms and haven't found anything. It's not as bad as it used to...

You might not see them in other rooms but be aware they most likely are. Bedbugs can hide and remain hidden for months at a time. A good way to kill them is to use steam to go through all the cracks, edges and furniture. More effective than bleach.

In truth though OP you need pest control. Bed bugs are hardy things and the only way to really get rid of them for good is using professional chemical treatments and to have it applied a few times throughout the year.

because expensive is a relative term.

If it's a really good breeder they feed the dogs pretty well/shots/take care of them. It's fairly expensive stuff.

Plus because pure breeds are mutated as fuck they have to do all the health tests.
