PSA AND REMINDER

No Dog breed is inherently more dangerous than the others. It's about how they are raised. The ONLY reason you hear Pitbull horror stories is because they are cheap to purchase and physically capable. I'm sure if Terriers were the same size or Great Danes were the same price you would see near identical statistics. It's not the Dog but the factors around the Dog. Thank you.

Goats and boars are such a big problem in Australia because there is currently no big predator sitting at top the food chain.

Simple solution: release lions in Australia. There, boar problem solved and I just saved a ton of baby turtles.

Prove me wrong: cats are not obligate carnivores in the context of modern civilization

Yes, they need taurine and B12 but those can be supplemented. I've been feeding my cat meat alternatives and dissolving taurine and B12 supplements into onions milk for nearly a year now and my cat is completely healthy and normal. She also gets inpatient when it's close to feeding time so I know she likes it.

THE IDEAL DOG FOR ME?
Canis-Panther-1
What is the "ideal" breed/dog? I want to find a big dog but also not too big. Something like a german shepard/doberman. I want a dog with insane "willforce" like pitbulls or belgian malinois. The kind of dog that wont give up when his toy is too high or a dog that can grab a tire with his mouth and lift all his body weight for minutes. A dog that runs, jump and had a strong temperament. I was looking at dobermans or GSD but i think they might be a little too heavy for these kind of activities. What do you guys think?

Parrotlets are the ultimate example of manlet discrimination in contemporary society. Parrotlet birds such as budgies, conures and cockatiels are treated like ornaments despite living up to 30 years. They have the intelligence of the smarter dog breeds, approximately that of a three year old child. But even within the avian community, they are treated as a "starter bird" that is easy to care for and they are often mistreated and given subpar nutrition and housing. People underestimate how sensitive and social these creatures are and often neglect them, creating issues like feather plucking or screaming out of boredom. Even WITHIN parrotlet species, the smaller parrotlets like budgies are treated as more disposable by enthusiasts relative to the larger species, and the larger parrots like cockatoos, African Greys and galahs are mistakenly thought of as more intelligent and harder to care purely because of their size. That's why I try to take care of my cockatiels and give them a good life and refuse to buy from any pet store that has budgies for cheap prices in uncomfortable cage set ups with no toys or social enrichment.

I'd go with the loch ness monster, but that one would just be so fantastical it'd probably break reality or something.

Tips to trim stubborn pupper's nails?

Tried tiring her out, different methods of nail trimming but she always goes to 100% nope when trying to trim nails.

Tried the peanut butter trick, giving her pb or putting it on my own head. She is so flexible / agile she gets out of any attempts to trim nails. Sometimes I can get lucky and get one.

She is so stubborn / wiry about nail trimming.

Any tricks / methods to calm a pupper and be able to trim her nails?

Post cool and obscure extinct birds.
This is the Kaua'i mole-duck (Talpanas lippa). It was most likely flightless and the structure of it's skull suggests it had poor eyesight but a broad, sensitive beam and acute sense of smell, so it probably was nocturnal and occupied a niche similar to the kiwi. It lived in the island of Kaua'i, in the Hawaiian Islands.

Does my boomer cat have dementia?
IMG_20200705_234420_compress15
This is Chris, 14 years old. He's an old fart and it's starting to show.
It started with slight disorientation, or atleast thats what it looked like. At times he'd just sit in the middle of the hallway blank staring into the void, as if he is thinking "what the hell was I even supposed to do here". He also started to become much more playful. Almost kitten like. This has resulted in him yelling loud in the middle of the night for attention. If I go downstairs when he does this, i'd find him surrounded by his favorite toys. He hasn't even touched those in years. Ofcourse i cant help but skip sleep to go play with him.
As of recently it has started to become a little less cute though. He pretty much stopped washing himself, making him look greasy and messy all the time. He gets angry when i try to brush him. He has lost quite a bit of weight, he has always been a thicc boy so it's nothing for him. He also started regularly picking fights with his younger brother for some reason. It also looks like he is started to forget how to drink water. Atleast he is awkwardly doing that with his paws now instead of his mouth. And on new years eve he shat outside the litter.

I dont want to have to put him down guys. He is not in pain. Matter of fact he seems happy. Happier than he has ever been even. I know it's his last ride, and i think he knows too. I hope we can just ride it out peacefully before i finally have to say goodbye. I love him so much

Macaque Love Thread - Part 2
GuessThatMacaca
Previous Thread Here >>3609473

Thread for all kinds of macacas. This is a love thread, dedicated to talking about behavior and ecology in the wild, unique aspects of their anatomy and physiology, legit research on macaques, macaque rescue by professional organizations, religious depictions of macaques (such as Hanuman), and fictional depictions of macaques.

No baby monkey torture/baby monkey "pets." That shit is tired. Find somewhere else to talk about it. I am learning things from macaque love that stale torture threads will not provide.

To start, I have made another "Guess That Macaque" image. This one is pretty difficult! But they are all identifiable by the characteristics I provided, I promise. Can you guess them all?

Here's a hint: With the exception of A, all macs have been discussed in the previous thread.

First one to guess them all gets some nice, perky titis!

>Dire wolves are iconic beasts. Thousands of these extinct Pleistocene carnivores have been recovered from the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles. And the massive canids have even received some time in the spotlight thanks to the television series Game of Thrones. But a new study of dire wolf genetics has startled paleontologists: it found that these animals were not wolves at all, but rather the last of a dog lineage that evolved in North America.
The plot thickens.

I want to _____________________ Orangutan Bat.
>Scientists hope the rare discovery could be a catalyst for conserving the region's biodiversity.

>In 2018, scientists set out on an expedition to survey the habitat of an endangered bat species in the West African country of Guinea. One night, a trap turned up something unusual: a new species of bat with a fiery orange body strikingly juxtaposed with black wings.

>"It was kind of a life goal in a way, one that I never thought would happen," said Jon Flanders, director of endangered species interventions at Bat Conservation International, a nonprofit organization based in Austin, Tex. "Every species is important, but you get drawn to the interesting-looking ones, and this one really is spectacular."

>There are more than 1,400 species of bats, and every year more than 20 join the list. Mostly, though, these are lab-based discoveries that involve genetically parsing out cryptic species, or ones that look exactly (or almost exactly) like each other and were formerly thought to be the same.

>Just happening upon a new bat species in nature is something entirely different.

>"This sort of situation where experienced researchers went out in the field and caught an animal and held it in their hand and went, 'This is something we can't identify," that's much more unusual," said Nancy Simmons, curator of mammals at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and chairwoman of the global bat taxonomy group at the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

PETA keep on making shitty games and such to prove their point which is nonexistence in such games. Meanwhile you have games like this that prove their point perfectly without outright shoving your face into it. Here /an/, this is why pugs shouldn't exist.

Do you ever think sometimes live would be a lot easier if you were a fish? No work, just swim around all day, food basically drifts right into your face, get to experience a full 3D word with up and down instead of having to walk on the ground, can breathe and drink at the same time (saves energy and time). Being a fish sounds awesome.

Cat diarrhea
15c25f0940dfcda805ea9296bf6949a2
>be me
>have cat
>notice he has diarrhea last friday
>think nothing of it (he gets it sometimes, usually goes away)
>sleeps entire last saturday day, and during the night, gets frequent diarrhea every couple of hours
>parents feed him, say he doesn't eat sunday morning
>pukes a couple of times
>goes to sleep
>we feed him like normal, but I am concerned
>gets diarrhea during the night, throughout monday, tuesday
>hate seeing it
>decide to feed him boiled chicken (tuesday night, wednesday all day)
>diarrhea seems to stop for entire day (he used his litterbox a couple of times- first time looked like vienna sausages in shit and second time was diarrhea)
>mom decides to feed him regular food (thursday, friday, and today)
>shits out a huge snake turd friday morning (solid, not runny)
>think his stomach issues are solved
>fast forward to this morning (saturday)
>diarrhea seems to start up again

Has anyone else experienced something like this? Apart from going to the vet (which I plan on doing if this doesn't resolve) what can I do? I'm gonna give him boiled chicken for every meal and see what happens there. I'm honestly a little concerned.

Reminder that cats are responsible for 13% of all small mammal and bird extinction on planet earth.
Cats kill around 20 BILLION small mammals and birds in the USA every single YEAR.
To put that into context,
the deep-water horizon spill killed one million birds total.
Cats kill far more than even 1000x that every single year,
in the USA alone!
Counties such as Australia have had to take extreme measures against cats,
as they have pushed several species of lizards,
small mammals,
and birds to extinction.
The massive decline in bird populations in countries that have high cat ownership has also impacted the number of plants,
mainly trees,
that grow.
This effects not only the air quality but makes it more difficult for insects like bees to survive and pollinate plants!

Did you know most cats carry a parasite called t. Gondii?
Toxoplasmosis and the parasites that come with it are estimated to be present in around half of the UK population!
The vast majority of cat owners literally catch brain worms from their pets!
These worms have been proven to change behavior in mice,
and studies showed they did the same with human beings until cat owners forced the government to shut the research down!
Crazy,
huh?
Imagine defending an animal that gives you mind altering brain worms!
Almost like there's something in their heads influencing them to defend the ownership of cats!

Cats have half the number of neurons in their brains than dogs.
This suggests they are half as intelligent.
So much more 'muh independence! Turns out they don't learn skills,
because they are just fucking dumb!
Probably incapable of love too!

>In August the shattered 16th Regiment was relieved. They were sent to Alsace for rest and it was at this time that Hitler suffered two grievous losses. A railroad official, captivated by the antics of Fuchsl, offered Hitler two hundred marks for the terrier. “You could give me two hundred thousand, and you wouldn’t get him!” was Hitler’s indignant reply. But as the troops were disembarking, Hitler couldn’t find Fuchsl. His column was already on the move and he had to follow. “I was desperate. The swine who stole my dog doesn’t realize what he did to me.” At about the same time another “swine” rifled his knapsack and made off with a leather case containing sketches, drawings and water colors. Insulted and injured—first by a civilian slacker and then by one of the new breed of cowardly recruits (no front-line soldier would rob a comrade)—he put aside his paints.

Training New Parrotlet, breaking obsessions?
143019291
So I just got a new baby (10 weeks) Pacific Parrotlet from a local breeder. I read that for one hour a day to use open palms to teach him to "Step Up", and to let him focus on eating the rest of the day.

Funny thing is, in only 3 days, hes become fixated on the back of my couch that is up against the wall. He is content to sit near me and preen himself there. It has got to the point where if I am within 10 feet of the couch he will attempt to flutter over there from my hands. When I put him on the ground he attempts to climb back up.

Just today he began becoming a bit aggressive when I try to get him to step up from the back of the couch, to the point where he is actually biting me fairly hard now. I tested this by taking him into another room and once the couch was out of view he became docile with me once more. I am aware parrotlets are a fairly aggressive species, he seems to tolerate me fairly well, if not just slightly apprehensive. It is just odd he is fixated on perching on my couch.

Are there any Parrot fags who own a fairly aggressive species that could give me some advice on this particular situation? Is there any way to break this "Couch Aggression?" I like being able to sit and watch TV and there are less places for him to crawl under and get stuck in the living room.

1606306854470
I think my 5 months old male cat ate a long piece of dried hay. as long as my arm probably.
He started pooping and it was sticking out of his ass
i pulled gently and it was going but then there was resistance and he meowed.

I cut most of the visible string and gave him a little vaseline to lick.

what the fuck do i do now? Its 12:30 AM no vet even works.
