Board owner here, I plan to attempt bring life back to this board, but will have more time in a few weeks hopefully and during this winter. Check back occasionally


Yeah, I think I read that salps might be a precursor to vertebrates. I didn't know about them until recently. I was reading about krill, and I guess they are declining in some parts of the ocean, and when they decline salps appear more frequently. Fucking crazy looking things!

This article was interesting (it's in entertaining, light science style)


It seems like there are a lot of different types of tunicates

BO again

I never realized there was already a more active board relating to animals.


I recommend using that board. I'll hold onto this board just to learn about mod features and might still try to keep this place active in the event that /an/ sucks, but it looks pretty decent.

Is it ethical to own or care for intelligent pets?

I have a female cat, never got it declawed, but did get it spayed. Always felt kind of bad about that.

I also keep her inside practically 100% of the time, due to cars, foxes, coyotes, etc, time and time again watching my neighbors they lose their cat to a violent end.

But I also feel bad that I keep her inside all the time. Cats are only half domesticated and they have a strong instinct to hunt.

I have less experience with dogs, but most of them cannot even live on their own.

I'll revisit this thread and expand upon my point, but I used laugh at claims from PETA (I think) that owning pets is immoral. As the years go on with my cat, I'm not sure.

I spayed her, taking away her natural rights, and then at the same time I think she's great. So she doesn't pass on her genes because I spayed her, and future generations of this friendly cat are impossible. The other option is to not spay her, but then she practically has to be kept in a cage in another building on a regular basis (if you've ever been around a cat in heat you know)

Not sure where I'm going with this. If I decide that pets are not moral to own, then that just means that more abandoned pets that are already born get screwed.

It basically reminds me of how I feel about my own life. What is the point? Give a comfortable life? For what purpose?

I often ask myself these questions.
