Animal abuse in China
CCC0DB1E-D4E7-457E-84AF-80B331C8B0D2
While China being a shithole is common knowledge, actually seeing documented video proof of it opened my eyes once again. In this video you’ll see exactly how common it is for dogs to be tortured and eaten all around China. I highly recommend the full watch. https://youtu.be/rbHxeOQA1Mc

I have this 16L tank that is shared between a fighting fish and a cory catfish (they get together very well). The water has a slight green tinge to it. We have changed the water, added dechlorinator and water conditioner but all to no help. Please help /an/

suet
Is suet feeding something I should consider getting into?

Right now I have a tray with seeds laid out on the floor of my deck. I get nuthatches, chickadees, jays sometimes, juncos, and sparrows. From what I read suet feeders mostly feed the same types. I just spent $40 on seed so is it redundant to put up a suet block too?

5-frilled-dragon-steve-cooper[1]
So I have this vivid memory from my early childhood of seeing something similar to a frilled dragon while camping with my grandparents in central germany in a mountain-y forest. Was pretty small, it was in a almost vertical wall of forest ground mixed with boulders, it looked out of a hole and flared up or w/e its neck thing.

What did I see?

want to buy pair of chinchillas
>no one sells them within 100 miles of me
looks at adopting chinchillas instead
>none for adoption within 100 miles of me
okay how about degus instead?
>literally even worse situation
what do I do /an/? I really want chinchillas or degus and have the right amount of space and living conditions but they're so rare in London. I don't mind gerbils but they tend to make their tanks look really messy and since I'll keep them in the living room I'm a bit hesitant. can any gerbil owners chime in with regards to aesthetics and if I can interact with them like chinchillas/degus? any londoner chinchilla/degu owners that can tell me where to get some?

mud dauber
There are thousands and thousands of specialized hunting wasps that will either lay and egg on prey or hunt something and bury it in the ground. They are unchanged from the time of dinosaurs.
A small group of species decided to play with mud and thought hey I can build a nest with this stuff and fill it with paralyzed spiders.
What is the evolutionary purpose of this? Is it intelligent design?

Dog was shocked by electrified manhole cover during a walk in Chicago.

>Man in the U.S. says his dog was shocked by an electrified manhole cover during a walk in Chicago. (https://www.ctvnews.ca/world/imagine-it-s-a-child-owner-says-dog-was-shocked-by-electrified-manhole-cover-1.4825145)

>Earl the four-year-old Jack Russell terrier let out a yelp and sustained minor injuries when he stepped on the sewer cover, owner Jeff Fine told local TV news outlet WBBM.

>“In a split second he was spread-eagle, all the way down, belly partly on the manhole cover, completely on the ground screaming. I had never heard him scream like that,” said Fine.

>He’s sure that an electrified manhole cover was the culprit, because when he picked the dog up he felt an electric shock course through his own body, which made him realize the possible dangers to more vulnerable people who aren’t 190 pounds and healthy, as he described himself.

>"My body can handle that,” he said. “But imagine it’s a child, someone who's elderly, someone who's frail, and can't handle it. It could've been far worse."
Earl is doing OK, said Fine, but sustained burn marks on its belly and a blister on one of its paws.

aquascaping-16[2]
I have a fish tank that is brand new 3 months ago. It was a combo package that has a filter, pump, heater, glass aquarium, etc.

About a week ago, the pump/filter system started making a lot of rattling noise. I took it a part and saw a magnet that spins the propeller. No idea how to quiet it down. There are so few moving parts to really work with and rebuild.

Does anyone know how I could stop the rattling? It is no longer in warranty and I'd like to get this to stop. Very annoying.

opossum with kids
Opossums are some of the best animals in the world. They can walk dozens of miles a night, and they eat ticks! The mothers are very protective of the children and will carry the babies on her back like a bus!

They're very intelligent and social, capable of problem solving, socializing even with other mammals (like humans!)

It's a shame they get sick if you keep them as pets, but such beautiful creatures really don't belong inside, they should be outside in the forest eating ticks and nasty insects.

If you see an opossum and it isn't shy, make sure to give them a treat! They're working very hard for you (by eating ticks and snails)!

a mouse trapped itself in my bath tub. i left him and went to work then he almost got hypothermia from the cold/damp tub flooring.
was pretty much dead, not moving. was gonna toss him in the garbage cus i thought he was dead when i saw his foot twitching still. so i gave him a warm bath then rubbed him down with a rag in front of my space heater and he perked back up.

im gonna go to petco and get him a lil home later cus we're soul brothers now or something. i looked in his eyes while rubbing him back to life.

what should i get him? prob gonna get a 20g tank. friend told me to get paper cat litter for bedding and that they do better on bird seed than rodent food. what else should he get? i know a wheel but he's gonna be on my work desk and i work from home so i need to look into really quiet ones. how can i secure a water bottle to a glass tank too?

ps i named him vermin supreme

DIY fish tank help, engineers and carpenters
Problem stand1
So in an effort to save money and just out of peace of mind I decided to rest my 55g tank on top of two rows wide by two rows tall 6x6 lumber. I've since run into problems. For starters, the beams themselves appear to be warped or planed wrong or something because I've got a couple mm gap on the one side. Secondly, the plastic rim is cracked in multiple places. Now, either one of these wouldnt bother me as much but the combination of the two is a big deal, especially if I decide to just use the surface of two which is going to leave a 1.5 inch gap in between them. This means that my weight distribution is going to be really weird.

How do I fix this? Pics incoming

I should add the whole idea originally was not even so much saving money as maximum stability, and it doesn't get much more stable than basically a giant hundred pound brick of wood or whatever this ends up being.

No matter how much you may love animals, don’t try to become a veterinarian. Going to vet school was arguably the greatest mistake I ever made.

I grew up in a rural community and really enjoyed working with livestock and also loved medical work, so I thought I’d combine my interests. Got my animal science degree, really enjoyed it. Also got into vet school right away (I won’t say which school specifically but I will say it’s in the Midwest). This is my second year in the program and I regret it. The work is ridiculous, the pay I’ll be getting is abysmal, and the people you work with are terrible. The school had a petition just this year pushed through to limit student clinic work to 60 hours a week, because students were regularly forced to do multiple 17 hour shifts in a row and were making errors because of it. There’s so many girls, 95% are married or engaged, and they’re all bitchy to varying degrees and extremely type A. The debt is terrible and no one cares. In fact, they’re talking about raising tution soon and pushing for larger classes so vet wages won’t go up.

TL;DR vet school sucks

Also, uh ask a vet student anything I guess.

Dolphins Found Shot, Stabbed On Florida Beaches
1574908093341
https://www.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article240187752.html

Late last week, biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission found a dead dolphin from a bullet or sharp object off Naples, NOAA said. That same week, Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge experts found another dolphin with a bullet in its left side along Pensacola beach.

In May, a dolphin was found dead with a puncture wound in its head off Captiva Island.

The string of dolphin deaths has the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration offering $20,000 for information that leads to civil penalty or criminal convictions for those responsible. Call the NOAA Enforcement Hotline at 800-￶853-￶1964. Tips may be left anonymously.

Grizzly dude
grizzlyman
So, how or why Timothy Treadwell manages to survive THAT long living in very close proximity with grizzly bears. According to that Herzog's documentary, apparently the bears are simply baffled/confused with the man's behavior that they choose not to attack him. Is there any merit to that speculation? Also, how bad/good do you think the impact of Timothy's actions and subsequent death.

My mother's cat got hurt at some point 2 days ago, and when i got home she told me that she gave the cat 3 drops ( 0,15mL) of ibuprofen, wich can be lethal (she obviously didn't know). It was more than 1 hour ago and the cat is fine and happy, no vomit, nothing.
Is it too late for her or will she be fine?

Man offers strangers $20 to come to his kitchen and kill cockroach under fridge
1552066623565
https://7news.com.au/news/qld/brisbane-student-offers-20-for-someone-to-kill-cockroach-in-his-kitchen-c-703427

>A Brisbane student’s request for someone to come to his house to kill an “abnormally large” cockroach for $20 has been met with disbelief and amusement.

Bhargav Chavda, 24, posted the ad on Gumtree about 11pm on Monday after arriving home from a long day of study and work.

The student and entrepreneur, who said he has an extreme dislike of roaches, went to his kitchen to get food only to see the insect flying around the room.

>“It’s literally terrifying me,” he told 7NEWS.com.au.
>“I’m too mentally stressed and was like, ‘I don’t want to deal with this’.
>“My food is in the fridge and I can’t go anywhere.”

He said while the roach remains in his house, he has been able to retrieve food by covering himself in a blanket and face mask.

>The unusual cloven-hoved youngster had four eyes and two mouths, but only one pair of ears. Bhaskar's farm has quickly became a tourist attraction, receiving visitors from neighbouring villages wanting to see the rare calf.

>Because the baby cow has two tongues it is unable to drink milk, meaning the caring farmer has to feed him milk from a bottle each day.

>The mother and calf both are presently well, but the future of the youngster is uncertain.

Seeking Rabbit help
RH-208e
Hello /an/ I need some help. My mother and niece adopted some rabbits a few months ago and quickly lost interest in them and were just going to put them outside and let them run away so I told them I would take them instead. So I think I've had these two rabbits for a few months now and this morning when I went outside to my shed where I have their cage to feed them one of the rabbits was dead. So after I had a good cry for a bit I brought the remaining one inside my house and I have her downstairs in a 5x10 area with chicken wire until tomorrow when I can create a new hutch because the last one was quite small for two rabbits. Anyway, I think the one died because of an improper diet. I was just reading a little bit about rabbits last night and I think I was told bad info from my mother about their dietary needs. I was told they only need some carrots or iceberg lettuce but I read last night that they need primarily timothy hay, rabbit pellets and only about 10% of their food should be veggies and/or fruits. I also read that iceberg lettuce is bad because they don't get enough nutrients from it. Is all this information correct? Do you agree that the cause of death could be due to the diet or could there be another cause? She wasn't bloody like she was attacked by a predator or anything. I'm just so sad here because I don't know what happened. Here is the hutch I plan to build using plywood boards and the chicken wire I have for the fenced areas. I think it is a chicken coop but I think it should work for a rabbit. Any advice about rabbit care and knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

Birdfriends, is there a better alternative to ebird? What do you use to keep track of all your lists?

I had a rarity last week with a photo that was confirmed, then today someone went back again and unconfirmed it so it won't show up in searches. Just wtf? Also still waiting on a rarity with a photo from TWO YEARS ago to even be reviewed. And lastly ebird has automatically hidden all my pictures of a certain duck so it won't show up in searches even though it is a valid sighting.

tl;dr I don't feel like ebird is very trusthworthy anymore but I do like having the backup of all my lists online, but if it's going to randomly erase stuff what's the point?

So I'm looking for better options if you know of any. All I can think of is Excel but I don't know how I'd set it up so it'd be easy to find certain birds at certain dates/locations, etc.
