Bring 1 (one) species back from extinction. One of my two kitties hasn't come home for two nights, bros. >There is a third kind, consisting of those animals which are called uri. These are a little below the elephant in size, and of the appearance, colour, and shape of a bull. Their strength and speed are extraordinary; they spare neither man nor wild beast which they have espied. These the Germans take with much pains in pits and kill them. The young men harden themselves with this exercise, and practice themselves in this kind of hunting, and those who have slain the greatest number of them, having produced the horns in public, to serve as evidence, receive great praise. But not even when taken very young can they be rendered familiar to men and tamed. The size, shape, and appearance of their horns differ much from the horns of our oxen. These they anxiously seek after, and bind at the tips with silver, and use as cups at their most sumptuous entertainments. Is there actual credible evidence that dinos had feathers or is it literally historical revisionism? My sister just let her cat go on the property.
Me and my uncle currently have around 40 chickens total some of which are free-range. You can see why I'd be concerned.
When I told her it would be better to take him to a shelter and explained the obvious she said "No it's ok he's too slow and clumsy". She got all irrational and angry when I further emphasized that no matter how much of a pussy he was, he still had the instinct to hunt and would kill my fucking hens some of which are handraised, or he would be killed by the giant red rooster that prowls the property when his dumbass tries to pounce on him.
What are some ways that I could effectively explain to this toxo ridden woman that letting her fwuffy hunter free on a free-range chicken property is not only a terrible idea but probably the worst she's ever come up with? Where the FUCK can I find lizards in the UK? Got home today to find my brother bought these two beauties (we share an apartment) they are a male and female lovebirds, anything I need to know about taking care of them? Is that cage big enough for them? He bought them from an old lady online and the cage and food came with them for 60 euro for everything, they are ringed and everything. What a great deal. Any anons here got any tips for me? Thanks. Do you think it's possible any non-avian dinosaurs could have survived the K-T Extinction, even if only for a few hundred or a few thousand years? I'd argue that people who say that putting dogs in clothes is degrading are anthropomorphing their dog judt as much as, if not more so, than the people who put their dogs in clothes.
People who put their dogs in clothes, despite what you guys may think, are well aware their dogs are dogs. The clothes are more of a 'pretend' thing, like dressing up a doll. Not a particularly good thing imo.
However the people who criticise them by saying it degrades the dog seem to genuinely believe that the dog feels humiliation in the same way a human would. Which they don't.
If the dog is physically comfortable wearing clothes, it doesn't give a shit that it's wearing clothes. Can we get some more love for these amazing dogs, please? They don’t get as much attention by the public as other African predators, and they’re sadly endangered. Cat seems to have a pretty serious eye infection. Last winter it was a bit swollen and pussy but mostly fine. As summer slowly rolled in it got larger and took up more of his eye. Any of you guys know what it is and what I should do? have you already been on vacation this year, anon? This is the dog general. Anything dog related goes here.

https://mytriops.com/ last one hit bump limit very sad weird question,
I have a cat that LOVES to touch my face. She's very affectionate and I love it, but she just bumped a burst cold sore (yeah I know, I am gross, I can't help it) is there any danger that this could spread to the cat? Vet thinks she already had some kind of herpes when we adopted her but I dont want to make my baby sick :( Can we get a duck thread going? Is this thing right up there with the Platypus in terms of things whose existence puzzles you. Why do all of these weird looking creatures seem to come from the water? Imagine having one of these things grappling on to your neck and just sucking the blood right out of your veins. > A helicopter searched the area but could not locate the Polish boar and its piglets

https://www.faz.net/aktuell/gesellschaft/tiere/das-diebische-wildschwein-wird-vorerst-verschont-16904965.html In honor of World Elephant Day, let us remember those that have been lost (because humans killed them).
We'll start with Notiomastodon platensis. This was the only species of Elephant that existed in South America, before humans eradicated them. There are still skins remaining of them recovered from ancient human dwellings in South America. Is there an evolutionary reason people are scared of spiders far more than any other insect/bug? My cat is dead and i have been crying for an hour straight, i'm not a pussy and i rarely cry or feel depressed but i'm just feeling so sick and bad right now, for those of you who experienced their cats dying, how do you cope? >dog saves human child from a burning building
>WOW EPIC! HERO PUPPERINO! DOGS ARE BETTER THAN PEOPLE YOU KNOW, THEY'RE LOYAL AND NEVER LIE
>dog fucking eats owner alive
>well, um, it's the owner's fault for not training it well. also dogs are driven by instinct, it's not their fault, they don't understand and can't control it
Pick one and ONLY one. Does anyone have any good /an/ documentaries to recommend? Watched a whole bunch of BBC Earth stuff this year and it was comfy. how do i get my dog to stop licking his penis all day long ? You know, I think there's something to the toxoplasmosis idea, I mean, I own two cats and I'm schizophrenic, so.
Anyway, cats are definitely the best pet, bar none. ITT Post Japanese animals/Pets. Has anyone come across these almost albino blueberries? I found them amongs tons of very ripe blueberries, the leaves looked exactly like those of a blueberry plant except for the color. I triednone and it tasted verynsweet just like a ripe blueberry. Why do westerners value these pests so?
They are disease-ridden vermin and must be killed by the thousands just to avoid ecosystem failure
I see videos of these people talking to them like these things are people and going out of their way to save them
I do not get it
They feed off literal harmless herbivores like cows and chickens and keep these walking snake seals as "pets" they do not even give two shits about them? least you could argue dogs actually care
such weird folk Hi all. Anyone feed their dog raw meats instead of kibble?
Apologies if this is discussed all the time here, but I've honestly never been to this board.
What are your experiences? I've recently started my dog on it.
Not following a specific diet so far, just what seems "right" to me. I'm just grinding whole chicken wings and legs, then freezing the mince in cubes, and also mixing in some chunked pork lungs/ liver, and occasionally some fruit, leafy greens, peanut butter and coconut oil. I'll add some fish too, when the season kicks in.
What do you guys think? There is nothing worse than a fucking snake these goddamn animals need to be killed all of them need to die as soon as i see one i want to brutally end its sad little existence if i had one in my hand right now id make it suffer the worst part are the people who think that snakes are"cute" these faggots are goodamn braindamaged like my fucking god it is sad that we live on an earth where these motherfucking faggot people exist snakes it doesnt matter how much they "love" you because they never will there is no goddamn way that some filthy slithering cunt bucket of a snake will ever appreciate you unless you have food in your hand kill these animals now how many more years do we have to suffer without any geneticly re-engineered dinos? I need help /an/, I’m going to get a kitten soon but my family and me are having a issue about what gender we should get. My only pet experience were with Male/Female dogs and a male parrot.I personally hated how males humped everything, however they were a bit more loving/needy than females which I did like. The parrot hated all males and loved only females. So can you guys share some experience with cat genders and also some pros and cons. What’s my baby’s breed oh and a dog thread I guess Could any animal on Earth win even 1/10 times in a 1v1 vs an elephant? I put a sock in my cat's head. If you think Sharks play a vital part in our oceans ecosystems and need protection GIVE ME A HELL YEAH >"Hey, anon, stop being a pussy and hop in, dude!"
what do you do /an/ I managed to bury a fly after it felt from my electric swatter zaps, but after I removed the sand from it the nigger was still alive
How long until its dead then? >Live in northeast
>Wolves, elk, bison, grizzly bear all hunted to extinction here
>there are only urban legends of seeing moose or cougar
>the only thing we have here are white-tailed deer and raccoons, and they never even come out
Who else lives in an ecological wasteland? It almost makes me want to move to the west coast. Found a few clusters of apple snail eggs today in my front yard, which isn't a common sight for me, even though they're considered an invasive species here. I have considered planting a garden in the future and was wondering if culling these eggs now would be a wise move.
Lend unto me your wisdom, dearest /an/. Are chickens smart? Are they stupid? Do I need to worry about the noises a neighbourhood dog is making? I can hear it out my back window but can't see it, presumably it's in one of the adjacent yards. It's been making this very distressed sounding howl for the last few days, that's the only sound it makes and I've never heard that noise from any dog before. The dog has been making the same noise at roughly the same time for the last few days. The sound has got weaker over this time too (it did respond when I whistled out my window just now). Should I call animal control? does picking up dog shit make you a cuck? I was out swimming in the waters of BC and saw a creature that looked like this but lived underwater. Looked just like a worm, with rings but had black eyes, was about the size of a finger. Anyone know what it could be? I know this is a caecilian it looked very similar but had large eyes to the side. Caecilians don’t live in British Colombia In Yellowstone and elsewhere. The biology of this movie is fucking insane and I love it Anybody knows what this is? One of my three cats started being very aggressive towards my other two all of a sudden. Two days ago he started to hiss and stalk the other two like they were a threat to him, and initially he reacted that way to me as well but he's calmed down around people since. They've all lived together for three years. I took him to the vet yesterday, and he came out with no obvious signs of any physical discomfort or ailments. He's still eating and drinking. He's still using litter normally. Stills enjoys being pet and held. Pretty mysterious that he seems to hate the other cats all of sudden. I thought maybe he had gotten a hold of drugs or pills that somebody dropped on the floor and couldn't find, but he's still acting pretty harsh. Any ideas what could be the issue or what the other cats might have done?
Pic related, it's the black cat in question. Thread dedicated to debating over which plant is the best. Use facts or person experiences to prove your plant is the greatest.
Aloe Vera is the best fucking plant. Resistant to hot temperatures, months without water, spikes to ward off fuckers. Latex outer layer, filled to the brim with literal healing gel. Gel heals small cuts, bruises, rashes, burns, and acne.
Aloe Vera does not have pollen so it doesn't spread that shit everywhere. Only downsides is for allergies and it makes you shit if you eat it.
AV is abundant in Arizona and its a magic healing plant. I use it to heal small stretch marks around my arms.
Coomer time. Additionally, I cut a hole in the aloe vera and boom I got a fuckin' fleshlight. The gel boosts skin growth which makes your cock larger.
>big cock gel
Tell me about you plant and why its better. Before asking questions in this thread, do a bit of searching online to see if it has been answered already.
Make sure you give us at least some details when asking a question, such as:
>Tank size (include dimensions, not just volume)
>Parameters (ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, pH, GH, KH)
>Any and all inhabitants + how long you've had them
>Pictures are always helpful

>doesn't matter how easy they are to kill, they never stop coming Hey /an/, I love animals and am just playing devils advocate here, but are we as humans going against nature by trying to preserve species that we are destroying? Is it not natural selection at work for us to be destroying those that cannot live with how we are changing the earth? Since there is no other humans isn’t there an argument that everything we are doing is natural? What are your guys thoughts?

Rate him, He his a good boy. my cunt of a parrot broke my nice mechanical keyboard now i have to use this shitty membrane one A pigeon made a nest on my balcony under an old bicycle, and there's two babies in it she's taking care of. I've heard that pigeons are pest animals, so should I be doing anything about it, or do I just leave it alone? My father thought it might be appropriate to spray them with bleach, but I thought it should be fine since I hardly go out there, and likely won't disturb the nest otherwise.
Pic related, it's the baby pigeons and their mother. >yeah dude we just nail metal into their feet and they don't feel any pain haha Is anyone able to identify this?
My cat is currently unwell with diarrhoea. I found this near some of his diarrhoea, but I cant tell whether it's something he was trying to eat, whether it's an internal parasite that has come out of him, or just happens to be nearby? my cat scratches his ears a lot and i'm stumped as for a reason...i took him to the vet and they said he didn't have mites and his ears were perfect...any idea if there is a medical issue or does he just really like ear scratching??
i'm worried cause he will literally let me scratch his ears as long and as hard as i want, purring the whole time. at some points i feel like i'm hurting him but he still seems to love it? never met a cat like this >top posts are animal hate threads
