Can you take a lizard or an insect from outside and keep it as a pet? Or do they tend to die from being kept as a pet? I remember one time when I was a kid my friend told me a story of how he tried to keep a little lizard he took from outside as a pet and it ended up chewing its own tail and chocking itself to death on its own tail. Not sure how true it is.

Here's a picture of one that popped out of my mirror when I was driving. Stopped to take a picture and move it to the trees by the road.

I once found a lizard and put it in a fishbowl, it turned white after a while so I let it go. not sure if it needed air or sun but I'm sure his progeny are still out there.

Even wild caught insects can have issues. The most common issue would be parasites.

Hey /an/, I wanna test my drawing skill, so here's what we are gonna do.
I know it's still a WIP, but try to identify the type of dino I'm drawing from what I've got so far. Just getting the general order or even genus is close enough for me
I'll check and see if anyone got it once I get home

I like Mexico City, I just moved here. I'm going to celebrate the Chinese New Year at El Barrio Chino.

humans are inherently a slave species, and their dominance is only due to irreversible cuckery and softness. They dominate because they cuck themselves for the good of the group. It's a slave strategy.

Laurasiatherians are honorable and brave and majestic. Unfortunately these qualities are expensive.

Xenarthrans - rats and sloths
Afrotherians - rats and manatees and elephants

Euarchontoglires - rats and primates
Laurasiatherians - giraffes, horses, cows, whales, tigers, wolves, lions, bats, dolphins, bears, seals, pangolins,

I already made the thread on /his/ so I guess I'll link >>7958306

Basically every well-formed animal except elephants came from Laurasia. All the other animals are just variations on some sort of rat (aardvarks, armadillos, humans, hyraxes, etc)

Euarchontoglires are the actual masterrace because they so hard to wipe off. There will always be huge populations of rodents as long the environment allow this.

Laurasiatherians also have their own “rats”, shrews.
All these clades have badass animals of their own, but all kinds of life have a generic generalist base form. For mammals it is the “rat”.

I wonder if Octopi like touching us the same way we like touching animals. As in, is touching the man's finger the equivalent to us touching a cat's nose or toe pads?

they taste with their suckers

it was seeing if the finger was food

Can't octopuses taste with their tentacles?

I'm pretty sure there are active projects trying to do that. or at least were. Nothing DNA based, mostly just attempts at breeding something that fits the historical descriptions.

You should be taking your puppy outside. Just avoid highly dog-trafficked areas. Because it does sound like he doesn't have enough of an outlet for his energy. That said, while there are things you can do to speed up the process, puppies tend to grow out of the bitey demon phase on their own eventually anyways. It does get better, anon. Just try to be patient.

It sounds like she's perfectly comfortable in there, I wouldn't worry about it. If you were actually crating her it would need to be bigger, but since she's just going in there of her own accord and can come out anytime she wants, it's fine. If you're still worried you could replace it with a larger one, but I don't think it's harmful as is.
