GLOBAL WARMING IS A LIE
Are lizards rational human phobias, learned human phobias, or are they a common phobia at all?. (what about snakes and spiders)
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.
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.
how does this make you feel /an/?
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.
Any advice for caring for an apple tree? My grandpa owns an orchard but he won't give any advice.
>My grandpa owns an orchard but he won't give any advice
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.
Post some interesting and little known fruits and vegetables. Some obscure facts about them too.
In general i just want to know and see more crazy fruits and vegetables and hopefully sketch them.
Thanks in advance guys.
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.
Rambutan. It's a fruit from Thailand. Even if it looks like a weird abyssal creature, it's actually pretty good and very sweet.
what the fuck

Use this thread to ask about rare breeds, advocate for rare breeds, and recommend breeders to get rare breeds from.
I am desperately in love with the Swedish elkhound (Jämthund) only problem is that I live in America and cannot find any puppies for sale. I will be forever in debt to the anon that helps me.
i know you've probably given up on this thread but
will help you out
now can you please sneak a presa de canario and an apbt into australia for me
i would be forever greatful
Hey /an/ , what would you do if a mad goose randomly hurts your dog, would you kill it or run away.
Would have done exactly what that guy did, but if it kept coming back I would have grapped a piece of wood or something and spank that fucker till it cried, then let it go. Teach that fucker it doesn't WANT to come back.
I'm thinking of getting a bunny. anything I should know?
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
What is your favorite bird?
Mine is kekoo
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.

/nobird/ here, hoping to snag a cockatiel or conure from a local pet store soon. feel free to tell me reasons i should get either of them. they would also be my first bird so keep that in mind.
I'll dump some cuties I've collected while wanting a bird
Share your unusual herps. Attatched is a picture of a Budgett's frog I used to have.
Legless Lizards, they are so charming.
Can it be a pet?
Is that a slow worm? I used to keep them as a kid had no idea they were critically endangered, I did my part tho, fattened them up. I saw one on my patio a couple days ago, it was slow as shit so I warmed it up with my hands and put it under my shed
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.
Can someone explain to me how neutering a...

I love this, its spot on:
>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.
