Lizards aren't.

Kids that get to see snakes up close, as in pets or being shown the snakes by others who keep them as pets, are quite alright with the whole thing and don't seem to have any instinctual fear.

However, kids who have had no contact with snakes of any kind, dangerous or safe, do seem to develop a phobia, or at least a bias, by their teens. I blame media for that.

Tadpole_3106165b.jpg
172 KB,
Today in biology class, while the professor was talking about how evolution is a slow gradual process over thousands or even millions of years, I pointed out that we can observe tadpoles (fish) evolving into frogs (amphibians).

The professor just stared at me like I blew her freakin' mind. I think I know what I'm writing my dissertation on.

I think that piercing your pet was already determined to be animal abuse after the "goth kittens" thing, but I could be wrong.

Lawfulness aside, it's fucking dumb to do to your pet. Piercings get infected easily, they hurt (some more than others, depending on where you pierce), and they have no benefits except for the people who see it as a big red flag, and consequently avoid you.

What a prick.

Sorry I don't have any advice for you... I remember having an apple tree in our front yard as a kid but I don't know what--if anything--my parents did in specific to take care of it. I think it was pretty self-sufficient if I remember correctly.

This is a jackfruit. You can find them at most Chinese grocery stores. They taste like rubber pineapples filled with thin honey, with a weird "Chinese snakeoil" after taste which I suspect has more to do with how they're stored than anything else.

1. Always get at least two. They are very social animals.
2. They need a good bunch of space 24/7, keeping them in a cage while letting them run around 2 hours a day doesn't cut it. You should aim for a 4sqm pen for two
3. Don't buy any of the food stores sell. It's cheap, unhealthy trash that leads to a lot of issues in the long term. They need hay available all the time, and then give them two times a day veggies/fruit/weeds/herbs. Their diet should be like 80% hay/weeds, 15% veggies, 5% fruit

Chickadees are adorable, and they're always the first bird to stop caring that I'm nearby when I'm out in the yard.

That said, crows are smart little fucks, and they come in close second just for that.

I've never neutered any of my pets and I probably never will. I've owned dozens of different cats and dogs and I've never had any issues with them. The idea of removing a guy's junk, whether it's a dog or a human, makes my skin crawl. It's just not right.

What, your dog a little too aggressive? You afraid of him getting the other dogs pregnant? It's probably a stretch to compare them to humans, but if your kid is acting a little too hyper in the classroom you don't lobotomize him.

Here here anon. Neutering only serves to make animal companionship accessible to the irresponsible and the lazy.

Its barbaric.
