Is this a coyote? A dog? A fox? I live in NJ of that helps.

>>3175916
Yeah but I live in NJ. I realize they’ve been migrating northeast in recent years but to actually see one for myself was a little hard to believe.
>>
>>3175918
>I realize they’ve been migrating northeast in recent years
No, they've always been present in NJ. The ones in your area migrated SW to your state, they came from up north thousands of years ago.
>>
>>3175922
Well regardless of their geographical origin, they reintroduced themselves quite recently here.

You need to stop slacking and finish your paludarium or make an actual aquarium.

But slacking is my middle name anon

[Not really, just been crazy busy and finally got a paycheck to put a bit of money in the tank. I was out of work for a few weeks.]

Gonna be a bit frugal until after christmas, but I am gonna get some more plants. Gotta figure out how I want to set them up, up top though. So far suction cups are working pretty well on things.

Had a rough day today, send possums.

Reptiles actually do have personalities imho. It's just really hard to discern since they aren't complex and they have no way to show things with facial expressions. Basically they're like autists in that regard.

How do I start a homestead how many acres should I get for 3 Dairy cows

Need an extra 1/2 acre or so per head to harvest hay (bail it 3x a year) if you're not in zone 10 to get through the winter.
>>
>>3174006
19, about 5 per cow, plus 2 for hay, plus 2 for your home/garden/etc
>>
>>3175474
Also, I've done the math.
2 dozen chickens (that's one dozen for laying, another dozen that you're rotating for broiling) need about 4 pounds of corn and safflower/sunflower seed a day (that's only about 2.5 ounces per chicken a day).
One acre of corn yields about 180 bushels.
Bushel is about 56 pounds.
But that's on the cob.
So you need 1/2 acre of crops just for chicken feed.
And that also assumes high yield with current fertilizer and pesticides....
So in reality you need an acre of crops just to feed your chickens for 1 year.
>>
>>3175286
Now you have to feed a dozen children.

I am currently living on the NC coast and get to see brown pelicans flying by my window constantly throughout the day. I think they are beautiful animals and I am trying to learn more about them, brown or otherwise. Feel free to share pictures, facts, stories, etc.

I don’t know how to photo shop. As they flew directly above me I had my phone facing straight up and took several shots. Got lucky I guess.
I would love to get some better shots from above the birds, but when they pass by me they’re always too high. I know some spots where they like to hang out during the day so hopefully in the future I can get some better close ups of their faces and beaks.

Thats encouraging, thank you. I sure wish, oddly, there were more flies or something so I could be sure he was eating. Hunger is no fun for anyone, even little spiders. His poor nerves will be shot by the time something stumbles by.

But at least he will be warm inside. I wouldnt think he could detect something as small as a mite or how it would get caught in his web.

I wonder if I could leave some sort of aromatic bait near to help him attract bugs without causing a problem. I just dont want to see him suffer. Its so very rare he gets any food at all.

Can anyone identify this guy? He's about two thirds the length of my pinky and either sits still on the wall or flies aggressively around a light.
At first I thought it's one of the large gnats that stick to the walls during autumn and winter, but somehow it seems different. I live in Germany, by the way.

Have you ever smelled one? They're not like humans, where if it's not cleaned regularly yeast will take over and make it smell like low tide. You should still wipe them off with a damp cloth every now and then, but there is no bad odor. Stallion smegma can get pretty rank though, but only if you neglect them for too long.
