So I just saw this movie.

As far as animals documentaries go, this is one of the worst I've seen, particularly in the editing and fucking narration please stop trying to hammer in stupid morals during my cute animals shots.
Also the music is shit.

Don't go see it.

Cicadas don't have feathers.
But fantasy creatures do.

Hey, /an/. First time posting here, I hope you can give me some insight.

I have a medium female dog that was adopted when she was very young. Since I was a child and my family wasn't really responsible, the dog grew to be territorial and agressive towards strangers. It's kinda hard to deal sometimes, but we manage. She's 10 years now.

So, some shit happened in my life and I'd like to get a cat. I live in a apartment that has enough room for both, for sure. Buuut I'm afraid my dog will kill the cat. The times when I tried to introduce my dog to other animals didn't have good results: she growled and would attack if she could.

But could it be possible that she has any... maternal instinct? Maybe if I gradually have her being around a kitty she will get used to it?

I have some friends that have kitties for adoption, and they said I could "borrow" the cat to see if it works out. If not, I can give it back.

Is it a terrible idea? If not, how can I make this happen?

tl;dr: I have a angry dog. Can I get a cat without it being killed?
no, kill the dog and get the cat
Make your dog not want to kill things.
Maybe then...

even if you've had lots of pets over the years i think everyone has a soft spot for one in particular. dog, cat, reptile, invertebrate, doesn't matter as long as they mean a lot to you

my family had a mongrel that i'm pretty sure had some collie in there when i was really young. a total bro dog, i miss him

Not my pet, but I stole someone's cat when I was a kid and the memory always stuck with me.

Hey everyone, I found a picture and an animal that seemed rather interesting but using google reverse image search seemed redundant, as it didn't come up with any results. Would anyone happen to know what animal this is?

A tapir is my guess.
Agouti paca. South American animal, I think. I see them as exotic pets in the trade sometimes.

If you had to evacuate would you take wild animals with you?

Most animals know to get out of Dodge when a storms coming. Only help the ones that can't help themselves. But I won't go hunting down animals to help thou
I would take my animals. And animals that look like they need help, as long as it doesn't put my family at risk
Thanks OP. I was wondering how I'd get my chickens out if shit went down. That said I'd bring my dogs, chickens, ducks, and chinchilla. Fuck the rest, fuck my neighbors animals, and fuck any strays. Not getting caught in a flood cause of some random shit.

Are Fish Able to Feel?

Are we just food to them /an/ons

I think the only thing fish think is 'good and 'danger'. Their danger sense isn't terribly bright though unless they are the kind of fish that naturally hides 24/7 like that weird wormy ocean fish that lives with thousands of its children.
>buy a 2 beta fish cause dumb
>bitches fight immediately
>give one to friend, buy a bigger fish
>bigger fish passive but could easily kill beta
>beta proceeds to "fight" the big fish
>big fish is a bitch and won't fight back and will cower when I feed until beta goes away from food
Depends on the fish, Oscars for example are smart as fuck and can be trained to perform simple acts like pulling a string to turn their own light on or off, dispense a treat.

Hey /an/ I'm thinking about catching a stray cat rather than go to the pound cause of price, so I have a few questions. Is it true that you can tame a feral cat if you put them in a burrito? Is it a good sign that the tip of it's ear is missing? What questions would you ask, if you were me that is?

The price you're going to spend on the vet bills for a feral cat are going to be a shit ton more than the adoption fee.

But sure. Pick up a cat with a tipped ear for convenience. You'll still be paying for the worms, fleas, vaccinations (assuming it doesn't already have a fatal disease) and any injuries it has.

Even after it's tamed it's still going have behaviour problems, most likely spraying and shitting all over the place.

If it has the tip of its ear cut that means it's vaccinated with the basics and/or defertilized.
If you take a cat from the street it's not necessarily feral. Many cats are dumped when they grow up and aren't a cute little kitten anymore, when the owners take a long vacation and don't have anyone to care for them, or whatever. Never heard of the burrito thing, and I'm sure it'll be hard to get them in.
Also, cats in pet shops are relatively well off, they're not going to starve or get run over or something. In my opinion taking a cat from the street is morally better, but desu who the fuck cares.
Image related, it's my first cat
These cats live right by a walmart, in the bushes. I doubt they have a home.

>I don't believe it.
>Eight hundred guys washed out to sea.
>You're a liar!
>Nobody would live here after that!

And yet people keep living in places like that and they never seem prepared for when it happens to them again for the third time.
Why is that?

Mostly because they're poor and when you have limited financial resources you tend to prioritize preparing for long-term, possible problems like hurricanes less than preparing for immediate, guaranteed problems like starving because you didn't buy food.

I just took in a 5 week old rat who was the runt of the litter. The mother stopped milking at 3 weeks, but the breeder was giving her mazuri blocks and extra food to help her out with her dietary needs. She's still pretty small, what can I feed her to help with her development while she's in quarantine (I have others too).

I just gotta say she is cute! Congrats anon. I hope someone chimes in with some good advice.
High protein diets are essential for growing rodents and that's about all the more I know. I would suggest going to an exotic animal clinic if you have one around you. They'll have tons of great, way more reliable info for you
