Hi /an/!

I got a question to you animal experts about panda bears. Does pandas only still exist because of us humans? I mean, they seem so "unfit" to be living in the wild. They're slow and clumsy which makes them easy prey and they also run a huge risk to die in accidents because of their clumsiness (i.e falling down from things, getting stuck etc). But humans love panda bears so we keep them in zoos almost to protect them from the wild (and their own clumsiness). Would they be extinct if it weren't for us?

Here's some examples of what I'm talking about. Check out the first panda falling down a tree.

They would be perfectly fine if it wasn't for us. They have evolved for millions of years to adapt to an environment that would never run out of food(with the exception of say china getting scorched) and an adult panda doesn't have predators to begin with. From an evolution standpoint, they were winning. They don't need to hunt down prey, don't need to struggle for food and largely avoided each other except for mating.

They've become endangered due to extensive farming and deforestation of their territory, not because those wacky pandas are so clumsy they just keep killing themselves in hilarious ways. As a 200-300 pound bear, they're not easy prey for anything and they have no natural predators as adults. They're quite slow and docile most of the time, but can defend themselves or their cubs quite well, making them far too risky for most predators to take on.

So no, pandas are endangered specifically because of humans, they were doing fine in their weird ecological niche until people encroached on their territory. It is however true that they're not very adaptable in terms of their diet and territory and they don't breed well in captivity.

They aren't abandoned, they are supposed to be on the ground at this age, and the parents are caring for them still.

Put them back immediately, but it's entirely possible if you've had it for a while the parents have given it up for dead and you personally are the reason this bird if going to die.

Never pick up young wild birds unless they are obviously injured, or are so young they shouldn't be out of the nest. (IE some...

What kinda fish is this? Freshwater, he's like 1.5 inch long. Always sucking on rocks and the glass.

Today I decided to take my dad's dog out for a walk because my dad got a back injury and now nobody walks the poor little bastard. I took the dog on the same route as I used to take my dog which includes a small boardwalk onto the lake. She then unexpectedly jumped off the boardwalk and very happily went for a swim in the water.

This all sounds great except for the fact that the lake is very polluted... i'm pretty sure she didn't drink the water, this dog also (despite our best efforts) eats small rotten dead animals, other dog's shit and raw meat...

Clean and dry her completely and you should be good

if she begins displaying signs of illness you'll likely just have to go to the vet for some antibiotics and maybe a dewormer (giardia).

like the another anon said, wash and dry her thoroughly

1hr a day isnt much exercise really, I walk my 6 month old Mastiff puppy for 20 minutes to the beach then let him sniff around on his own terms at the beach on a long line for 20 minutes then its a 20 minute walk back.

Ridgebacks will need more than that I reckon.

Okay, so I just went to check up on the chickens before I went to bed, and now I'm terrified. One of the hens was sitting in the temporary nest box I set up for them, and there was a bit of fluid sitting on the cardboard on the border of the nest box right outside where the grass is placed (urates? There were two eggs, but no broken eggshells, it couldn't have been a broken egg.). I picked her up and set her on the ground just to see what was up, and she was relatively unresponsive. Kind of slow to react to me. Upon closer examination, I found a white, cord like structure...

Yeah, you might want to consider ending it all and getting some good meat out of it. Sorry 'bout that, girl.

>>2132213
So what, there's nothing I can do? Are you confirming that it's her insides coming out? I don't even know what could have happened, she's been calm and relaxed since I brought her home from a friends a few weeks ago, only got into a few scuffles with my other chickens.

Is there really nothing I can do?
>>
>>2132214
Generally with farm animals, it's my opinion that pointless medical bills and suffering can be eliminated if they're good for being slaughtered at that time.

But yeah, sounds like prolapse and I don't know if there's much to be done for that. Tell your friend they sold you a defective chicken, I guess.

Hey /an/ I recently got a second birb (cockatiel) because my first one started feeling lonely and also got too clingy.

problem is that my first one is extremely protective of the new bird and won't even let me get close to the cage. he starts biting me as soon as I lift a finger but he's the sweetest bird when seperated and in another room...

what am I supposed to do now? the new one is in his cage just chillan and scanning the room, still afraid of my finger though.

Do I keep them apart? can anyone with experience give me some tips please?

I want to tame the new bird without the other one trying to bite my fingers off whenever I get close to it.

When I keep them apart he keeps calling for hours on end and the new one starts panicking for some reason.

I just want to know what's the best way to deal with this shit. I didn't expect my old cockatiel to go apeshit and protect the shit out of the new one... He literally leaps at my face and bites my nose.
