How smart are pigs really? Everyone says they're clever but I'm not convinced? Are they clever like rats that cat be trained to go through a maze or clever like Chimps that can figure out how to use tools, or clever like dolphins that can figure out how to rape?

Baby boars are so cute. Like little baby deer with snuffle faces.

Wild boar aren't very smart, even though their babies are much cuter and the adults look much cooler.

Domestic pigs are smart as fuck though. I am not sure why or how that happened.

Hey /an/, my roommate's hamster has something wrong with her cheeks. They're all bloody and scabby looking. If you look at the pic, you can see food stuck in one of the bloody pits in her face. I've suggested multiple times for him to take her to the vet but he says he isn't willing to spend the money on a hamster that won't live much longer anyway. Do any hamster experts here have an idea of what could be wrong? The hamster is by itself so it's not being mutilated by other hamsters or anything.

Why is holding orcas in captivity worse than zoos and aquariums holding animals?

It seems like most people advocating this are mindlessly parroting some CNN movie, and that worries me, but I don't know if they're mindlessly advocating something good or bad.

>>1995256
These animals are perceived as far more intelligent and social than any others like le magic dolphinz. However the whale the film is about, Tilikum, is wild caught, has been abused by other whales and is a danger to trainers, they also keep him in a tiny holding tank and jerk him off daily and make millions from his sperm, so his offspring can also live in a tiny tank somewhere else. Considering their natural range of thousands of miles it's really rather awful.

they're losing money, and they think it's because of Blackfish.

In reality their core demographic doesn't have as much money as they used to, and what they offer isn't the best zoo around or the best theme park. It's a good time to be Disneyland or the San Diego Zoo. SeaWorld not so much.

I find him very honourable. He has raised awareness about oceanic problems, such as acidification and pollutions (e.g., PCBs), and how they affect biodiversity and even our future selves.

I agree with his actions of defending cetacean life by breaking down ships and harassing stupid Faroe, Japanese fishermen, and Inuit people considering there is copious evidence defending cetacean high self-awareness and intelligence. If we acknowledge their high encephalization quotient, high degrees of brain folding, complexity of their neocortexes, psychological experiments validating...

Why does something deserve to be alive just because its brain is more complex if it can't use that complexity to learn to avoid danger?

You know what everything that can't avoid danger is?

Extinct. And most of it not by our hands.

The earth is fuelled primarily by the sun.
This fuel allows life to form and flourish.
This life takes on many forms, each attempting to cling to a niche, each doing the same thing; surviving.

Those that are better at surviving go on, those that are worse do not. Where is the fairness in this? Nowhere,...

Piggies or ratties?

I'm considering guetting rodents as pets and I'm thorn between 2 rats or 2 guinea pigs...
I find pigs cuter but like that rats are more intelligent. The downside to pigs is the vitamin c pallets you gotta buy for them (don't have many of those where I live and they are very expensive) and the downside for rats is the fact they pee on you to mark territory.

Sell me on why should I get guinea pigs/rats.

(Also, can any of them be litter trained?)

I would go for rats if i were you. That comes from a person who have had a really big interest in guinea pigs and helping them when not ben taken care of right. They are really cute as babies but they are really boring. Sometimes they learn certain words if you repeat them before giving them food. Which make them squeak and get all excited for half a minute when the word is being heard by them. And that's pretty much it. Rats are way smarter and I would as I said, recommend them. I'm 100% sure they are more interesting.

I don't think peeing is a problem if you get female rats
Also consider how much time you have to entertain your pets, rats are smarter and they will cause a havoc when they get bored

>>1993576
Rats will die in 1-2 years, usually of horrible cancer.

So, take into account whether you want to deal with that. You get much more mileage with pigs.

She's an overweight 13 year beagle, and she has cushions, so we know the end is near.
But she was fine today, but tonight she just started barking/howling in the house for no reason.
He legs have been giving out for the last 4 months, but tonight has to be the worst.
Tried to give her her pain pills in her favorite foods, just yesterday she was begging for everything I ate.
Tried to put her pill in a cooked porkchop, she won't eat it.
