How long should I let my dog chew for? I feel like he would chew this bone all day if he could.

(He is only in his crate because he resource guards against out other dog.)

As much as he seems to love his bone, those are really bad for dogs. I would take it away completely and give him something healthier for him.
>>
>>2142844

Depends on the bone. Raw hide are definitely dangerous and should only be used as treats. And even then, only a little bit. They can cause impaction. We don't keep them in our house because we have 2 dogs, both over 150#, and they can eat a 12" rawhide bone with knotted ends in less than 30 minutes, and that's WAY too much too fast.

Other bones, like cow hooves, are fine. But stick to uncooked ones from a butcher or such (harder to find in some places than others). Cooked ones are a lot more...

I know that invasive species are bad 99% percent of the time but if you had to introduce a species into a continent/country it didn't inhabit that you thought would help the ecosystem or not do any harm what animal and place would you move it to. I would put tapirs or cassowarys in the rain forests of Africa.

I'm curious, why?
>>
>>2142300
There's no point putting anything in Africa, it'll only get poached. Rainforests are high-biodiversity habitats and there are probably too many variables that will affect getting a species established (also cassowaries primarily eat specific blue fruits, they don't exist in Africa). Deserts are a little simpler though, just look at all the feral camels that took over Australia.

To answer your question, I suppose I'd introduce highly venomous spiders to China, South Asia, the Middle East and...

Seeing as spiders virtually never kill humans, that probably wouldn't work great.

this is the most retarded post I have seen on here. stop misinforming people, you moron.

In every species of ant colony, all worker ants and the larger soldier ants are female. The only male ants in a colony are the winged male alates which mate with the queens and die immediately after.

>a carpenter ant?
and no, it has no resemblance to camponotus spp.

most likely lasius spp. but I don't know your location OP so It's hard for me to specify what species.

I'd like to know more about Bonsai.

I got a Japanese dwarf maple growing in a container outside. It's just a babby 1-year graft. I don't know why I find something that's going to take years to flourish so interesting. I'd like to get a few more species.

Having a miniature tree like that looks dope. I haven't researched where to start though.
>>
>>2140764
While it's good practice to grow trees in containers, small 1-year grafts should be kept in the ground - trees grow far more readily in the ground than in a pot. OP picture is an Acer buergerianum or Trident Maple, and from its size is probably 20-50 years old.

The best way to git gud at bonsai is to drop $30-40 on a couple of well-developed trees, READ UP ON THEM, then carefully style them in the manner you learned from your research. You want to find material that already looks like a mini tree- good...

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one and they only matter if you want to fuck them.

It depends on the zoo, check out the blackfish thread. We talk about how zoos are way better than seaworld and the positives about zoos in general.
But really it depends you have some great zoos that breed rare animals that would be killed by third world people, promote interest in animals, promote conversation of endangered animals and provide genuine interesting scientific facts.
But on the other hand you have shit tier zoos like that one in Argentina that basically barbecued their polar bear with their tiny non air conditioned outdoor enclosure.

I'd be ok with zoos if they specialized in something rather than mixing all sorts of shit up and expecting it to be fine.

things like indoor butterfly gardens are great, because they specialize in butterflies.

etc.

18 KB,
Quick question for you guys. I've been thinking about getting a dog for a while, never had one while I was growing up because my mom was allergic. A few days ago I went to the doctor and they put me on a diet to try and lose some weight. Got me thinking that a dog would motivate me to get out and go on walks/jogs/whatever.

I don't really have much experience with dogs, so I guess I'm just looking for beginner information about caring/training. I was thinking something small to medium size, with a medium/average level of energy, affectionate/friendly, but...

A Shiba Inu will make you its bitch.
They're stubborn and won't listen to someone with little to no discipline themselves, like you fatty num-nums.

The dog will get fat and you'll get fatter.

weight loss from activity is overrated. you can't outrun a bad diet.
shiba inus are not very affectionate. they are independent and don't need no man.

with the high likelihood of dog mortality from you accidentally sitting on it, rolling over it in your scooter, eating it, or it getting into your stash of chocolates, I wouldn't recommend getting a dog
