Alternative to the "Out of Africa" Theory of Hominid Evolution
1655929241483
So I enjoy discussing hominid evolution with people because it's something I think about quite a lot and it fascinates me that people were once wild animals. Whenever I try discussing things with my brother, however, he continually mentions that the "Out of Africa" theory has long been debunked by anthropologists. However, when I ask him to link me an article or research to read, he just tells me to google it and it's everywhere, but I can't find anything that actually suggests the "Out of Africa" theory is bogus. My understanding of human evolution is
>hominids evolve in a specific region in Africa
>eventually, common ancestor of homo sapiens and Neanderthals/Denisovans migrates out of Africa and into Eurasia, with some remaining in Africa
>homo sapiens evolves in Africa and replaces previous hominid populations
>homo sapiens migrates out of Africa, where some breed with Neanderthal populations already existing in Eurasia
This still makes a lot of sense to me, but I don't want to continue to believe some outdated theory if there is proof it is untrue. My brother insists that the existence of primates in every part of the world means that hominids did not evolve in Africa, but this sounds retarded to me. Any anons know what research/article he is referencing or what alternative theories exist?

/herp/ - reptile & amphibian general
20220727_020215-min
>heckin cute chonker edition
This thread is dedicated to all animals of the reptilia and amphibia classes. Topics include, but are not limited to: geckos, snakes of all kinds, frogs, salamanders, newts, turtles, tortoises, and much more. Before asking a question, do a search on the internet to see if it has been answered
Classifieds for finding breeders and products:
>morphmarket.com
>kingsnake.com
>faunaclassifieds.com
>reptilescanada.com (Canadian breeders)
>caudata.org
Most forums will have a "for sale" section on them, so look for that, especially if you have a specific herp you want. Craigslist can also be a good source for cheap aquariums, and make sure to check for any reptile expos that occur in your area.

When asking a question, make sure to include these details:
>Type and size of animal
>Enclosure dimensions
>Humidity and temperature
>Type of substrate
>The decor you use
>How often you feed
>The type of food you use
>If your animal is wild caught or captive bred
>How often you handle
>Who you bought the animal from

Ivy Dying
dying-pothos
I have a potted plant which I think is ivy. One of the vines is yellow and withered toward the middle, and all of the leaves near that portion are dying or dead, but it has a large number of leaves which are still green near the end of the vine, and the base of the vine is also still kind of green.

Why is this happening? Is this entire vine going to die? Should I cut the end off and repot it? I usually water it once a week and it's been alive and growing for at least 8 years. Leaves periodically die and fall off while it grows, and sometimes an entire section will die, but I've never had an entire vine die starting from the middle like this.

Pic related, it looks similar to this.

Dogs with Kots
4026374065
I'm thinking of getting a Basenji since my wife really wants a dog. I am a cat person and having a cat down the road is non-negotiable.
We're thinking about a Basenji because it doesn't bark, it doesn't have that bad separation anxiety (based) and it doesn't smell (based).
My only 2 worries are: high energy (I'm lazy hence I like kots) and that they have a hunter instinct. AKA I don't want it to kill the cat when I get one.

Have any of you had experience with this combo? I mean Basenji + cat.

I would love a Russian Blue cat, but we want kids so I'm not sure if that's the best breed for this. Give me the qrd please.

Jesus fucking christ I know you want to shit, there's no way it feels comfortable holding it in for so long, what's the point of waiting another day?? You go to the same damn spots again and again, you'll be forced to just shit eventually, so why torture yourself? Holy shit I love my dog but this is the most annoying thing she does.

Did I do the right thing killing a mauled hedgehog
hedgehog-3257606994
I'm going to give you a greentext summary so it gets straight to the point, not trying to treat this as levitous
tldr i put a hedgehog out of its misery, or thought i did, was it the best i could do in that circumstance?
>middle of night
>strange sounds outside, I assume criminals or something
>look outside, woman with large muscly dog
>she sees me and immediately drags the dog behind the corner
>unlock doors to go see since she may have a problem with the dog
>left a mauled hedgehog in the street
>i check if it's dead or not, it makes very spaced out sharp gasps and squeals a little
>clearly punctured, there's blood in the grass
>i immediately think I need to put it out of its misery
>get axe, come back, hope it expire, it suddenly squeals and gasps again
>can't do it with axe
>beat it to death real hard with a spade instead
only after did i think i could have just left it, it may have been fine. i live in a rural area in a backwards country, there's no way there's a vet available this late to have come for a hedgehog
i'm not sure i did the right thing online it says that dog attacks on hedgehogs require immediate attention, but it was unlikely to survive right
i'm shocked my first instinct was to put it out of its misery kill it, rather than try to help it
in any case i can't take it back now, but i'm thinking i murdered the poor thing now
i'm not really an animal person, tell me if i did the right or wrong thing here
i'm getting drunk so i'll be here

Anyone here wish they had animals?
1616960490649
Sometimes I like to pretend to have a farm so I can fit in here and a few other places and help people out with animal questions, but all I have are my animal books and old Nova documentaries.
I cant afford to buy a farm yet so in the meantime I've made up a pretend dream farm.
I have about 12 dairy goats that I raise and sell, some guineas to keep away predators with their incessant screeching and keeping the garden clean of bugs, chickens for meat and eggs, two cats to eat mice and pet, and a few honey bee supers that I keep by a shade tree so they don't toast in the summer. I would like to better establish an ecosystem here and work hogs into the picture, but I haven't read much on them yet and not so sure how much I would need to grow to keep them fed till slaughter.
It doesn't make much money and takes a lot of work to keep up since affording the feed would be too much, so I range them or grow the food that's needed. Its hard work, but its living life compared to wasting in my apartment.
Anyone else?

Pseudoscorpions get some attention, but what about Giant Velvet Mites? I think they look cute and would make for a decent pet arachnid.

>Beneficial to the ecosystem, the adults kills pests like their cousins the spiderbros.
>Keeping a small insect/isopod colony with them could be used for breeding these Mites
If Pajeets actually shipped these guys to the U.S, I would consider buying one, Trombidiidae Mites are underrated arachnids, they get a bad rep because they are in the same category as Ticks and other parasitic/fur mites, even though its proven they are not that closely related. Those fucking CHIGGERS are the only exception tho.

As far as any living creature goes, barnacles definitely ask the most for you to torture them. Their mere life illegally crosses the border between animal, vegetable, and mineral. Objects covered in barnacles will resemble an enormous piece of feces, a pile of vomit, or maybe the world's ugliest rock. Together they make anything appear to have dozens of superfluous beaks. Many more beautiful and intelligent species end up as the growing beds for barnacles, and tend to appreciate having those pieces of trash pried off of their bodies. Barnacles are the planet's worst venereal disease. A barnacle can not be described as a sitting duck, anything that sits is far beyond the intellectual capacity of these ugly lumps. Their capacity to resist the rightful cruelty of all Adam's subjects is completely dependent on their concrete exterior. Other species cover themselves in shell, or wood, even chitin, but barnacles are a contagious form of brutalist architecture. Even coral has the common sense to color itself like a children's cereal. It would not be meaningfully unethical to forcefully disassemble that hideous meat geode for the longest time period possible, a creature's capacity for suffering is proportionate to the complexity of its life, and how can you believe that a barnacle has any more complexity to the span of its existence than the millions of lobsters that are boiled every year, or even the insects which we casually incinerate?

>I recall having read of an Englishman who, while hunting in India, had shot a monkey; he could not forget the look which the dying animal gave him, and since then had never again fired at monkeys.
>Similarly, William Harris, a true Nimrod, in 1836 and 1837 traveled far into the interior of Africa merely to enjoy the pleasure of hunting. In his book he describes how he shot his first elephant, a female. The next morning he went to look for the dead animal; all the other elephants had fled from the neighborhood except a young one, who had spent the night with its dead mother. Seeing the huntsmen, it forgot all fear, and came to meet them, with the clearest and most lively signs of inconsolable grief, and put its tiny trunk about them, as if to beg for help. "Then," says Harris, "I was filled with real remorse for what I had done, and felt as if I had committed a murder."

Why do normies think it's acceptable to have their cats running around on other people's property? If you think cats belong outdoor, why the fuck keep it as a pet in the first place?

Bad news is that it’s a freshwater tank so they’re done for and also my fish immediately ate these things up. ROE v. WADE IS STILL IN EFFECT IN MY FISHTANK.

How did animals survive Chicxulub
uFRp6tq8FMchbEcZciUWR6
How did specifically all nonavian dinosaurs and pterosaurs die but not turtles and crocodiles and birds? Only explanation I can find is living in swamps but how did no dinosaurs survive in swamps? Even a small dinosaur? It just doesn't make sense. In the NOVA they just did about this, they said the impact forced water out of the crust and boiling water rushed into all kinds of places in North America in less than 10 minutes.

And pterosaurs all dying but birds living makes even less sense, they weren't in water, they all flew in the same air and ate the same fish.

A lot of our ancestor mammals they said lived in burrows and just hibernated until the surface was manageable, which could make sense, but means you have to discount every single small dinosaur living in a burrow at the end of the Cretaceous.

I've paid attention to Dinosaur Theory since I was a child and haven't ever heard this all make sense

If one day humans disappear: How much time would it be needed for dogs to physically go back to a feral state?

Two to three weeks after huracan Katrina when people came back to the cities, house dogs that were left behind return to a more semiferal behaviour so this mental state could be reached not in decades but years, months even.
But what about in their appearance?
How much would it take for their appearance to significantly change?
What's the closest looking "breed" that exists right now to this hypotetical wild dog? (If any)

Specially considering only FEW breeds could survive without humans (no pugs, chihuahuas, etc)

Do all dogs have separation anxiety and can it be dealt with?
Screenshot_20220731-174834_YouTube
Single guy here. Looking at getting a puppy and the two that caught my eye and set up play dates with are an Aussiedoodle and King Charles Spaniel. I'll be working tho so they'd be alone for awhile after growing out of the puppy phase. Staying at my mom's for most of that span. I read those type can get more anxious tho when alone since they're smart and grow a strong bond with owners. But I'd imagine all dogs aren't into that too much.

I already looked up ways I could train them for that day, but would still like advice. One tip I liked was to walk them before work so they're more likely to sleep most of the day when gone.

a piece of speculative evolution I made for the "born again earth" Venus predicted by Alexander Abian (I know his theories are wrong but its specevo) since this "born again earth" will be hotter i predict that there would be nothing with thick fur so if there was to be an, at least somewhat, intelligent species then i predict it would be the elephant as elephants on earth can be seen using tools (i.e throwing rocks). As such they are still elephants so can only reach a societal peak of the bronze age however the iron age is possible.

>have 20 gal aquarium since a kid
>no filter, no airstone
>has not been cleaned in 13 years
>one water change two years ago
>glass never cleaned
Aquarium hobby is full of people with shit understanding of the hobby. Just look at youtube with retards keeping 300 gal tanks with dozens of filters and nothing in the tanks but fish and water, yet they somehow feel they have the right to tell people how its done.

Heres my quick guide for actual aquarium keeping:
1. Get some fish, to convert food you throw in to pee, get airbreathers if you can or tetras
2. Get some plants to convert pee to oxygen and be food when you arent there
3. Get some shrimp/thai crabs/ or mini lobster to keep algae down and eat dead fish so you dont have to scoop them out
4. Get limpet snails to squeegee your glass so you can see into the tank, also they rub algae off your plants
5. Get freshwater clams to filter water, one 2'' filters 2l per day and one pass is 80% clean

You will never have to clean or aerate your tank or even think about it except once or twice a week for feeding.

I got the /an/ autism pill.
1649361376614
I was tired and bored of not being able to draw a fucking background for my anime characters to walk while on forest.

So I start to watch plant anatomy, which made me watch plant taxonomy, which eventually made me to spend 2 weeks just trying to learn biology taxonomy from plantae, fungi, animal, and protist kingdom.

And right now I don't even have a clue if I even remember all that shit.

I only have a weird desire to start copy pasting living beings species into my games for no particular reason as to just put a random mice or a random fungi inside a pot in a random level.
And keep doing like funny easter eggs with random small arthropods in some small corner the player will clearly eventually ignore.

And I had like fun imagineing doing something like a small kiwi walking around a small corner hiding with some australian ferns.

Because fuck you, now I got the /an/ autism gamedev pill.
