Sounds like your mom has empathy level zero, what the fuck.
Your not at all to blame if your mom didn't even call to allow you to choose what to do with your pet as she decided to stop caring for it.

More playtime? Maybe try catch and chase, some love it. Or she really needs to show you a spider or something.

You get six pokeballs. Catch any six animals and they'll obey your commands. What do you capture and what do you with your new animal companions?
If you try to catch a human you'll be turned into stone.

as in it's not enforced by the mods? True, but just because it isnt promoted doesnt mean people dont talk about it. This is a forum, sir; people can talk about whatever they want.

No, this isnt /zoo/, this is "/an/ - animals". If it's animal related, then it can be discussed here.

Kinda unusual, I love hamsters and find them adorable but I have a guilty pleasure of watching youtube videos where shitty owners record their obivously stressed out hamsters.

I treat my dwarf like a king; plenty of living space (1000 sq inches at least), varied diet, lots of toys, tamed well but for some reason I enjoy watching these videos of these really shitty hamster owners fucking with their hamsters. Guilty pleasure I guess.

I do that too. I type in robo hamster and sort by date added and idk why. I watched some 7 year old leave her hamster in a cup of water to "bathe" it recently

This thread is dedicated to all animals of the reptilia and amphibia families. Topics include, but are not limited to: geckos, snakes of all kinds, frogs, salamanders, newts, turtles, tortoises, and much more. Before asking a question, do a search on the internet to see if it has been answered
Classifieds for finding breeders and products:

When asking a question, make sure to include these details:
>Type and size of animal
>Enclosure dimensions
>Humidity and temperature
>Type of substrate

Rosy boas, Mexican black king snakes, rat snakes, woma pythons (if you can find them and deal with the strong food response), spotted/children's pythons, boa constrictors if you're not a retard and understand how big they can potentially get, hognoses if you like attitude.

I live in Mexico, I have a dozen barred rocks and a cock. Those won't do shit in a cockfight, though.

I raise gamefowl also and I show them in the shortknife. Bought my broodstock from South Carolina (Leipers), Tennessee (Kelsos) and Alabama (YLHs). Paid $1k for every cock and $250 for every pullet.

They do just fine in the ring but it's a big investment.

Why is talking about animal abuse allowed on this board now? I thought it used to get shitheads banned.
>>
>>3083244
I just want to encourage you animal fuckers to kill yourselves. That's all. It's not a moral thing, nobody likes you. You know that already or you wouldn't be fucking defenseless animals that rely on you for their survival. But you need to understand the world would be much better off without you. Humanity hates you. Animals fear you. You serve no purpose. Not a single winner in the whole bunch.
>>
>>3083372
they made it so only images of animal abuse get bans.

so now talking about cockfighting and bestiality are difficult or impossible to report.

which is funny, the site is now LESS marketable than when moot had it. Hopefully it'll be bankrupt soon.

Octopi are fucking smart. I read somewhere once that they'd probably have evolved into higher intelligence like humans if they'd had a way to pass down knowledge from each generation. Imagine if there were two apex species on the planet, just humans on land and octopi people in the water with Atlantis cities. They'd probably be just like us and have little octopus wars and cultures and shit. Imagine a bunch of octopi setting up plastic bags hanging off coral to lynch other octopi that had a different color. We'd have octopi posting on waterproof computers calling humans who pollute in the ocean "cringe" and in return we'd have human posters calling the octopi who lynch the equivalent of black guy octopi "based". I want to know what weapons they'd evolve to use. Probably small knives at first instead of spears like humans, since they're so quick and agile. Their weapon evolution would just be refining knives until they can figure out harpoons and guns and shit since firearms and swords can't really work underwater. They'd learn animal husbandry and fly around underwater on sea turtles shooting harpoons at each other and developing water nukes. Fucking based octopi.

I’m convinced that octopus intelligence is absurd level of overhyped because of garbage clickbait articles. Where is there any evidence showing their learning abilities? Isn’t most of their neurology dedicated to tentacle manipulation.
