I guess it depends on the supplier. I haven't had the problems you describe, though I do mix a fair bit of sand through my store-bought succulent mix.

Owning a vacation home in West Palm Beach’s Ibis Golf and Country Club is a dream come true for most people, but for a couple of residents that dream quickly turned into a nightmare after their properties were taken over by dozens of black vultures.

Earlier this year, New Yorkers Anthony and Siobhan Casimano bought a vacation home in the Ibis Golf and Country Club for 702,000 dollar, but when they decided to vacation there, they were shocked to find it had actually been taken over by dozens, if not hundreds of black vultures. They were practically living in the pool area, had destroyed the property’s screened enclosures and did not appear too happy to share the place with its human owners. They pecked at their car, and vomited when they got too close, as a means of self defense. Despite their best efforts to have the issue resolved, the Casimanos remain unable to drive the vultures away and reclaim their expensive property.

“I have a 2-year-old daughter that I can’t bring down there while this situation is happening, they’ll probably attack her” Anthony Casimano told WPBF, while his wife added that the birds smell “like a thousand rotting corpses”.

The Casimanos’ next-door neighbor, Cheryl Katz, told reporters that she has been struggling with the scavenging birds ever since they arrived in the area, in May. They have been harassing her ever since, and on Memorial Day they tore through her pool enclosure and became trapped inside. She described the spectacle that followed as “traumatic”.

This happened in my neighborhood once when I was a kid. Some vultures started hanging around on the rooftops for some reason, and curious residents left chicken legs on the driveways to see if the vultures would eat them. The feeding stopped after two days but the vultures stuck around for two months watching to see if anyone would resume feeding them. Never ever feed those things unless you want them to move in with you with their whole flock.

fuck that motherfucker i ould throw a rock on that bitch

Hey lads I stupidly left an aluminum can in the trash and my doggo Apollo fished it out and ate most of it and had an intestinal blockage. Idk what to do if I can’t pay for this expensive ass surgery I’ll have to put him to sleep. He’s only 10 months old I got him from a shelter last year. What should I do? I started a go fund me but it’s not doing jack shit so far. Anyone have advice?
>>
It's toast without that $3k surgery. I'd feed it some fried chicken and ice cream then hit it in the head with a 357 a little off center of an X drawn between its eyes and ears. Instant lights out.

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:

Most forums will have a "for sale" section on them, so look for that, especially if you have a specific herp you want. Craigslist can also be a good source for cheap aquariums, and make sure to check for any reptile expos that occur in your area.

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

Not true, cypress forests are specifically cleared for cypress mulch.

https://homeguides.sfgate.com/ok-put-cypress-mulch-vegetable-garden-56019.html

https://www.gardenguides.com/131622-cypress-mulch-pine-bark-mulch.html

http://statebystategardening.com/state.php/newsletters/stories/cypress_mulch

Lower the demand, along with the restriction efforts, and our cypress forests can have a chance to regrow.

It's a piss poor snake bedding and can be substituted.

>>3117057
The only thing I can complain about the EE/mulch/bark mixes is that the EcoEarth starts to dry out every day instead of once a week. I used the mixes with my BRBs so their bedding didn't mold as often, but I don't like to mix EE in general.

Is there any fish that is smaller than a rummynose and will school tightly?

I have that custom three foot long tank that's only eleven inches wide. I really wanted a nice, tightly schooling fish, but all I can find that will, for sure school, is rummynose.

Microdevario Gatesi

nanus is the smallest
their capability to school like a rummynose is doubtful though, unless there is something in the tank they consider a potential threat, which dramatically increases schooling behavior
