this is my skunk! he was an orphan and I want to know where to start. We're taking him to the vet tomorrow. I read online about skunk diets and I will not allow my baby to get diabetes.
we're not de-scenting him either because we have to give him back to nature.

Then don't raise him. Also it's old enough to be on its own. Young skunks are just oddly friendly.

he weighs less than a pound. He weighs like half as much as my pet rat. Is he really old enough to be on his own?

>>2148671
The way he's laying with his head down and paw curved by it is exactly how my cat laid when he was critically low on potassium and collapsed. If he's that light weight he's probably very lacking in something, so he should get checked out. My cat lost 25% of his body weight over a day during the aforementioned collapse.

Comfy channel though I want to start doing it myself.
Can you breed specific markings though?

The beetle you see in the picture belongs to the subfamily of Cetoniidae, the so called "flower beetles".
This beetle is called goliathus orientalis. The biggest flower beetle in the world. The markings are absolutely random, but it's possible to breed specific markings with the use of selection breeding.

Here is a picture of the longest beetle in the world, Dynastes hercules hercules, the "Hercules beetle":

For anyone interested in this topic, a brief overview about this exciting hobby:

Breeding beetles is a popular hobby, especially in Asian countries.
The common breed beetles are Cetoniidae ( flower beetles ), Lucanidae ( stag beetles ) and the most popular subfamily Dynastinae ( rhino or giant beetle ).
The biggest "producer" of beetles is Japan. They offer everything you need in normal shops, so you just have to buy it. Japan holds also the most record's of biggest beetles in the world, just a few days ago there was another record for the longest...

OP, why not a cat or dog? Most animals will not appreciate your presence. Even cats have like a 30% chance of wanting you there all the time. It's a tall order,really.

What is the best way to treat fleas in a cat?

My family cat has had them on and off since I was a little kid, so long that my family pretty much gave up after years of failure a long while ago. We've tried pills, drops. powder, flea collars, flea shampoo. He never sleps on old furniture or any infestation hotspots. We just cant figure it out what we're doing wrong.

Will I ever see him flea free in his lifetime?

Help me out, /an/

Are you religiously vacuuming your house, regularly washing bedding, clothing, and rugs with boiling water?
>>
Are you letting him outside? If so, he is just picking up more fleas
>>
>>2147841
How often is religiously?

We've only had carpet for the past six months or so, and since then, we haven't noticed any increases in flea numbers, or even seen them in the vaccum bag at all. I guess we could all wash our bedding more frequently if it'll help.

He is almost always outside. Rarely sleeps indoors unless it's raining, and is usually hiding somewhere in the backyard. He begs to go outside if we keep him in for more...

Hey /an/

thinking about getting a dog in a couple months, but myself and gf (16/f/cali) work regular 9 to 5's.

We're trying to find something that can be chill
at home while we're at work, but still can be
active like on the weekends and stuff. Just looking
for suggestions.

Get a rescue from the pound that's pasted it's puppy stage and chilled out (like around 3-4 years old). Ask the rescue about dogs that are being fostered out in homes because you'll be able to get a better grip on the dogs personality in a home setting versus the high stress kennel environment.
>>
If you get a dog, make plans BEFOREHAND as to what would hypothetically happen to if the relationship were to go sour. A relationship with a 16-year-old is not likely to last and too many animals end up in shelters because people can't work their shit out during divorces/breakups.

Me and my gf adopted an 8 y.o. American Bulldog/Staffordshire Terrier from our local shelter and it's the greatest decision we made. The dog is very relaxed in the house, was already trained, long walks aren't mandatory which is good considering our work schedules.

Also Spaniels aren't the best dogs to have in your situation, they require a lot of attention and love. I would stick with an older bully, terrier, or hound.

She was perfectly healthy like a month ago 5 years old really big and had a fat tail and then I mated her and she was doing fine eggs we're developing nicely she stopped eating but I read that can happen when they're about to lay

Last night she was sitting upright in the laying box she looked fine this morning she was all limp and weak and I took her to the vet emergency clinic

They're awesome. Only slight downside is that their skin is a bit on the thin-ish side and rowdy playing with other dogs can occasionally result in minor cuts. This is why when you see race dogs at the track running around in their play/exercise area, they still have the muzzles on. Not because they're bitey (they aren't), just to avoid that complication. Also related, because of the thin skin and low body fat percentage, they are more sensitive to temperature than your average doggo.

Both...

I just got this thing from Hobby Lobby for like $3.25 and it says it's guaranteed to grow but I'm terrible with plants. Does anyone have any tips on growing it? The botanical name for it is Lemaireocereus Thurberii.
On a side note, does anyone know what plants I can grow in an office with 100% fluorescent lighting?
