Do snails have a nervous system, do snails feel pain?

I live in the countryside and go out for midnight walks, and very often step on snails by accident.
Instead of leaving them to suffer, I make sure they die fully now.

I guess I don't know anything about how lower-animals perceive reality. Is it immoral to step on snails?

>unless you were going around doing it on purpose
Would it make a difference if I was doing it on purpose? The snail suffers the same. Morally, what's the difference between intent and accidental. The snail doesn't distinguish, it just suffers the same.
I just don't want to cause unnecessary suffering, and have concerns about judgement in the after-life.

the difference is what kind of person that'd make you if you were seeking them out just to kill them without purpose vs them just being unavoidably in the way

Just a heads up though, if you DON'T leave it alone, its bite is super poisonous and basically certain death if you get bit. You don't fuck with wolf spiders.

Hey /an/ I've got an abandoned fawn that I rescued that was trapped in a fence line and its foot was injured. at first the foot was just a little swollen but then the deer escaped for a day and when it came back the foot is in much worse shape and it needs to be amputated. but when we called the vet they said they would not work with the fawn. unless it came from a rescue centre so now I don't know what to do. I'm wondering if I can contact the rescue center to have them take the deer to the vet to get the foot amputated if I can pay the bill. Any one have any advice?

Call a wildlife rehab or your local fish and game. It should help if you really are willing to pay for it but it also depends if they will be able to keep it or have someone who can take care of it(its unlikely they will let you raise it).
Since its so young its unlikely if they take it I'm they will release it later.

If you can't foot the bill then honestly it's a hit and miss. They may or may not bother so make some phonecalls.

I have a GSD/ Golden Retriever mix that I got as a puppy from a breeder, the GSD got a hold of the retriever female and they were giving the puppies away.

Apollo is 9 months old now, and I've had him for 3 months, he is a great dog, really smart and he learned his basics commands (sit, stay, leave it, milk bone) within 2 days, and we are currently working on more advanced stuff. He gets makes friends with every dog he's met except one. My friend has a 2 year old husky and when we try to walk our dogs, they just immediately want to kill each other. We have tried...

So /an/ I want to try an experiment. The rabbits are thick around the small town I live in and it got me thinking: if I were to catch live female rabbits and bred them with domesticated ones, with unnatural coloration or lop ears, how long would it take to notice an actual change in the rabbits around here? I know the odd colored offspring would be less likely to survive but eventually the gene pool would become saturated enough that I could see some variation in the wild species. Also is this ethical?

I shot a piebald rabbit in a wild population and 1 out of every 50 I shoot is black.
>>
They wouldn't survive long enough even without predators. Also everything eats rabbits in general to begin with. From cats, foxes, tons of birds, etc.

And no, it's not ethical.
>>
I don't know how accurate this is, but I've heard that domestic rabbits are so far apart from wild ones that they do not produce viable offspring.

Hey guys, I don't know if this is the write place to write this, but I need to say this somewhere.

My dog has a heart that is too large for her body, and she is leaking fluid into her lungs. There is no cure for this. She might die in a few months.

She began by getting sick, and coughing a few weeks ago, and later, it just got worse. It's a genetic disease, not environmental.

I'll be taking to test her, but the vet said that he sure that this is what is going on. I can hope that this is the case, but the chances are slim. I wish you all...

I lost my cat to a similar heart condition when he was only five years old. Shit sucked, I know how you feel.

Try not to focus on waiting for the other shoe to drop and simply treasure her. Even if her life is shorter than it should be, know that you've done right by her.

Thank you very much. I wish she got to live a little longer of a life, but it was only 2 and a half years. I hope you're better after your loss.

Let's talk scary shit,

I go first,
See this superworm? I got about 20 of them.
I went out of town for a week or so, and I left them how I bought them, in this plastic container.

I come back home. They chewed a hole through it. Some freak accident. My 6 years of having them, first time this happened.

I come back, I want to feed my gecko a little treat.
They all gone except one in there, who is in pupa stage.
I look down, I see two in a corner by my guitar. Pupa.

I need to go on a nice little hunt for them before they morph.

Yeah they can chew through those thin deli cups the store packages in them given even time. Especially so if they can get to one of the air holes on the lid and use that as a starter bit for chewing. They're pretty cool looking in beetle stage and harmless. Probably will be easier to find after they come out of pupa.
