>only killed self

A zero





She used a decent gun and targeted specific faggots, so the potential was there though. But killing no one is basically not finishing the project so I'll have to agree and give her an F

Ferrets aside, are there any mustelids that are remotely suitable as pets?

LOL NIGGAS! I have a cat nao.

My brother is deathly allergic to cats, so I won't be able to bring it with me when I move back in with my parents.

I'll ask around for whoever the owner might be, tomorrow, but for tonight, do I need to worry about this cat shitting anywhere?

I fed him ONE can of tuna. Will that be enough to hold him over the night?

Dog owners like to feed their dogs chocolate and cheese even though it's poison for them. Is tuna poison to cats? I saw the cat eating grass outside, I didn't know cats did that.


If it's a stray you might want to get it checked for any diseases e.g rabies, asap.

My lovely boy of four and a half years in an old fusebox with his last rites and a dime to buy a cricket. When October rolls back around I'll visit his grave and play Deference for Darkness like last time. I don't care if you think its silly fuck you he was my friend.

I still miss him. I want him back. I still remember building his athritis ramps and hand feeding him when he just couldn't keep up with his food anymore. I still remember his squinted gaze as he lay still in the artificial sun on his last day. He must have felt cold when death came to embrace him. His little body felt so fragile in my hands.

List desperate evasion tactics homophobes use to deny homosexuality in animals.

My personal favs:

>le dominance

Only works if the subject is a dog, and even then anyone who owns a dog can distinguish between dominance and sexual humping.

>le it's not the same thing

Ah yes, having sex with the same gender is not the same thing as something defined by having sex with the same gender.

>outright anti-intellectualism

Desperation is always neat

Pretty funny when you faggots use the exact same argument to try deflect from the fact that over 40% of pedophiles are men diddling little boys.

Why would I need to deny that animals can be mentally ill?

Tell me, anon, what do you think is the best insect?

This little guy is the Cataglyphis Bombycina, better known as the Saharan Silver Ant. How would you feel if I told you that an insect like this can tolerate more than 54°C and you don't? And look at his colours! Isn't that cute?

Reptile classifieds for finding breeders of various scaled and sundry creatures



>reptilescanada.com (Canadian breeders)

>caudata.org for newts, salamanders and lots more amphibians

>Also check to see if there are any annual reptile shows/expos in your area as these are good places to find good animals from good breeders at partial discount

/herp/ officially official all purpose care sheet of wonder and magic

>sand a shit

>use a thermostat

>read all the caresheets

>set up your tank before you get your herp

>regulate temps & humidity levels prior to herp arrival

>do not fuck with (handle) your herp for at least 7 days after bringing it home and ideally wait until herp has eaten at least one meal (for snakes), two meals for lizards, frogs, etc.

>PVC tanks are way better for most applications and worth the extra money

>it is best to avoid chain pet stores when looking to purchase live animals as mass breeder suppliers are not especially careful about health and sound genetics… it often saves you money long term to spend a little extra up front to get a healthy animal

>Jump Start (formerly Hydrofarm) thermostat is a good basic and inexpensive thermostat for regulating ceramic heat emitters and under tank heaters (Amazon sells it)

>if you want something more advanced for temperature control, look at Herpstat products

Hi /an/. I just inherited a plant from an aunt. It originally belonged to my grandmother who knew what it was but has long since been forgotten. It has a climbing habit & puts out aerial roots that cling to brick apparently. It also roots easily. Does anyone here know what it is? I want to research what it likes so that I do t kill it. Thanks in advance.
