no, cuck.

The area around the dog's eyes is white. No other animal has that except for humans. Dogs evolved to have the white part from living with humans for so long and looking into our eyes. Isn't that beautiful?

Visible sclera (the white part you are referring to) is found in many other species, not just our domestic canine, and I'm 99.9% sure it didn't evolve from "living with humans for so long and looking into our eyes."

I think you need to stop reading every facebook article you see and taking it as gospel.

wtf is wrong with my cat
this is how much dead hair I brush off of him every single day and despite that I still find hairs on my furnishings, my clothes, my person

Is this bait?
That's pretty standard for a daily brush in molting season. If you don't want hair everywhere don't get an animal with fur.

Hypothetical situation /an/

If a feral child like Tarzan or Mowgli, who was raised by a pack/family of animals like gorillas or wolves, how would they develop sexually into puberty?

Would they attempt to mate with females in the pack?

It's happened with a chimpanzee raised by humans so probably, but I'd also imagine it would depend to an extent on how similar the species in question was.

everyday I walk on campus I get dive bombed by this asshole crow. Same stretch of sidewalk. I get close and hear him do these short calls.

why is this happening? I've watched other people walk and seen him dive one other person so it's not just me but the crow seems to be selective.

He gets literally a foot or less away because I can hear the woosh right next to my ear and feel a rush of wind. Am I at risk of getting my shit fucked up by this asshole?

Do you guys have/ever had any pets with weird habits or behaviors specific to them?

My germen shepherd would always eat bees. She was obsessed. She's chase after them and snap at them, shaking her head with her tongue out when they stung her, then go for another one.
No idea what was up with her.

ITT: Worst cages for any small animal.

Such as a rat, a mouse, a hamster, a gerbil...

I'll start.

This fucking piece o' shit monstrosity is as big as a fucking hamster itself, and a rat couldn't fit in this piece of shit.

The only use for this puny thing is filling it up with rubber and using it as a fleshlight. It's about the size of the average dick, after all.

So, what are some of the worst cages you've seen?

(If it's for something other than a small rodent, please specify)

It's ghetto and tacky.
Aquariums look classy with natural rocks, they look ghetto with wal-wart gravel and plastic plants.

Fish don't live in a world like that.
They feel calmer with black gravel.
Bright colors indicate poison in nature.
Light colors indicate shallow-water thus the fish live in fear of predation and lose their natural coloration.

Ever see feeder guppies? The gray ones that cost 99 cents per head? They are the same species as the colorful ones, only living a...

because /an/ and animal rights groups consist of a bunch of hatchet wounds for whom moral signalling is a safe and effective way to assert superiority and climb their own localized clique ladders.

Sounds like /an/ to be honest. I see threads all the time where people are asking for help, and /an/ goes batshit because not everyone can afford proper healthcare or keep their arm up their dog's ass to prevent it moving more than a few inches away from them.

People are crazy, man. If you genuinely love and respect your animal, it's more than likely gonna be just fine. Millions of dogs are in loving homes that haven't done socialization and obedience and taught the basic 9 commands. It works...

How long would you guess it would take to befriend a murder of Crows in my backyard? I'm living in somewhat suburban/rural area.

I'm hoping to get them to scare away the barn swallows that are constantly dive bombing me to protect pic related.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how autistic/likely to work is this idea?

Ignore him. Honestly, with my 10 week old puppy I just ignored her when she peed inside usually as long as it took to clean up the mess. When she was that old I knew she could hold it for two-three hours so i'd just clean it up then take her out just before the next time I knew she had to pee. Keep some enzyme-based cleaner handy and just clean up the spills as they go. At least distract the dog until you can be sure they won't associate pee inside with "out". You gotta expect accidents at this...
