does anybody know this rabbit's breed?
What is the ultimate diet for a horsefield tortoise? I worry about them.
Is there any secret vegetables that will unlock something deep within them?
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.

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?
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.
>come home from school on a rainy day
>find a very wet cat sitting on my porch
>short-haired calico, mostly white with a round face, imagine if those maneki-neko figurines were real cats
>she seems friendly, pet her and bring her some chicken from last night's dinner
>she keeps showing up on the porch or in the bushes knowing i will bring food
>she has a collar, i later found out her owner isn't home a lot and the owner's roommate doesn't like cats, so she's an almost exclusively outdoor cat
>one day while i'm getting her food i forget to shut the door all the way
>she follows me inside so i let her stay
>this becomes a routine, she sits on the couch with me while i watch cartoons and do my homework
>when she's ready to leave she walks to the door and i let her out
>she's smart too, never pees in the house
>it's getting colder out, one day she leaves then comes back at night
>i let her sleep in my bed then let her out before i go to school in the morning, this becomes a routine too
>owners don't seem to notice, mom likes cats so she doesn't care and even buys a bag of cat food
>really just the sweetest and most docile cat
>every day when i come home from school she's chilling on the porch, or i hear the bell on her collar jingling and know it's time for her to visit
>one day i hear the bell and there she is, running across the street
>a car comes out of nowhere and hits her
>i don't think it hit her very hard, but i think it gave her a heart attack, i'm not sure what happened exactly but she's able to run the rest of the way across the street then dies in a flower patch outside this thai restaurant
>cry and cry
>driver gets out of the car, not a mean guy, he just didn't see her
>thought she was my cat and immediately starts apologizing
>her owner's roommate sees and calls the owner
>they are mad at me for stealing the cat
>thai restaurant owner probably cooked her
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?
OP here, that was it, thank you so much.
Are you baby enough for the baby club?
If you had to evacuate would you take wild animals with you?
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?
>Stare at fish
>Play with fish by dragging finger across glass
>Stick finger in glass
>Fish nibbles or flees
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

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
come to the dogposting discord
you can only post dogs and nothing else, have fun!
>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.
Everyone in my family from Florida:
50 plus years living in the path of hurricanes.
>no bottled water
>no sand bags
>no power bars
>no imperishable foods
>stores already wiped out
>car almost out of gas
>gas stations out of fuel
How does this keep happening?
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).
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
