No one should be allowed to own a dog unless they pass a competency test. No more niggers buying pits to let run loose. No more faggots buying "guard dogs" that they don't actually train who go neurotic and bark nonstop in the yard. No more stupid cunts letting their dogs shit everywhere and not picking it up. No more dogs at dog parks mauling other dogs or people.

this, also putting down pit bulls and similar breeds. this shit breed is no good at all. Just the other day one of them nearly killed my neighbor's sister, and as you can expect the owner was the typical "pit bull mom" and the nigger dog was "docile and never attacked anyone before". My neighbor didn't press charges, the pit bull mom didn't put down the hellspawn and now he's free to kill/hurt again

Why don't they just send a drone to North Sentinel Island? Even if they think it's wrong to film the people we should at least be able to see the animals and plants that may be unique to that island.

>In November 2018 the US-based Christian missionary organization All Nations trained and sent John Allen Chau, a 26-year-old American, to make contact with and live among the Sentinelese in the hope of converting them to Christianity. Chau traveled to the island by bribing local fishermen. He expressed a clear desire to convert the tribe and awareness of the risk of death he faced and of the illegality of his visits, writing, "Lord, is this island Satan's last stronghold where none have heard or even had the chance to hear your name?", "The eternal lives of this tribe is at hand." The fishermen later saw the islanders dragging Chau's body, and the next day they saw his body on the shore.

15 * 7 is 105 and if anybody could agree with me 105 in dog years is pretty f****** old and 15 in dog years is pretty old as well so if you had your grandpa at 105 to go under dental and cancer surgery do you think you'll come out alive because I don't think you would because the heart could not take the stress on the body and it would die out and also the person that's hosting the heart would someone a dog would die out from the stress that his body has on him

Axolotls are critically endangered in the wild. But does anyone here know how many exist in captivity? They are my favorite animals and it would make me sad if they became extinct.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.

They are extinct completely, because most axolotl you find in the pet trade are already hybrids of A.mexicanum and other Ambystoma species like Tigersalamander etc.

>>3087680
What does a pure axolotl look like then?
>>
>>3087724
You'd have to find footage of someone catching a wild one back from when it was still possible. It's not like hybridisation drastically altered their looks. Maybe pure-bloods just had a slightly flatter head or something to that effect.

Retard alert

Ok so, yes they're dying out, but they do still exist in the wild. They just couldn't find any for awhile. Google it.

Second, the ones in captivity are about as much axolotls as you are a homo sapien. The gene for albinism was introduced into them via the very closely related tiger salamander, but given that almost all axolotls do not morph you can see that captive axies are really axolotls. The few percent of tiger salamander introgression isn't a big deal just as a few percent of Neanderthal isn't immediately obvious in us either.

Hoggers don't bite, they poke you with their nose. The venom is not very potent and they'd have to chew on you for an extended amount of time for anything to happen. Don't know much about false water cobras so can't comment on them.

False water cobra venom is a bit of a hard thing to nail down. Some say it's potent enough to actually cause some problems while others say it's not that bad.

It happens, best to not free handle them, especially food-oriented snakes. The risk is compounded if you have health issues, this is a secondary infection one handler had, but she had diabetes as well.

Massive swelling, pain, and nerve damage happens in rare cases as well. Each person will react differently to their venom, so it's best just not to be exposed to them.

It's hard to really put snake venom on a scale, but I hear falsie venom more generally results in harsher reactions than hoggies.

>>3087851
Generally, yes, but you'd be surprised how often that happens. People downplay their toxicity online so much that when someone has a hoggie mistake their hand for food, they're not all that inclined to remove it. Because "it's no worse than a bee sting right?" But just as individual reactions to bee stings vary, so do reactions to hoggies. Some might just have some slight itchiness, some might have painful and extreme swelling, and some have reactions like pic related.

If so what are your hopes and wishes for this game?

for me my current hopes are:

>hope mussaurus really is in it
>hope it looks good and is unique
>hope we get a free patch so you can connect Jurassic Tours together and use them as a form of transport as well

i have a list of things within reason that i think could be done with the game's current engine and systems, this is about in order of priority but the top few could be added in basically any order.
>manmade decorations, especially statues and fountains
>new/varied animations for the same tasks/behaviors
>improved dinosaur fights which is a topic so massive i could make an entire full length post on it alone
>replayability for the campaign, they fixed challenge mode's replayability though which is fucking amazing
>add gene mod slots to early game dinos that get unlocked as the game progresses so dinos like triceratops aren't objectively inferior later in the game
>more attractions, i want a sky tram, sky tower, balloon tour, river ride and viewing dome at least
>new security options
>dinosaur shelters and enrichment to make it feel like an actual zoo, shelters could also reduce dinosaur stress in storms
>fuck destructible cars, give me destructible buildings and let small dinosaurs bust into and run inside guest buildings like fast food stands so they're not exactly as effective as emergency shelters
>dryosaurus and homalocephale
>permanent scars from battle damage
>carnivores look weird eating meat, give the meat ragdoll physics
>better guest ai, especially in dinosaur breakouts

not a bad list. Im assuming that dryosaurus will be in the '93 dlc in december. Could be wrong but the 4chan leaks have all come true and it would be great.

But yeah next priority definitely needs to be park decor like signs, statues, etc. Make a post about it on the forum if you can. The more people we get promoting for more decor the better.

If you have a planted tank like this you should never have to "clean" any of it except maybe scrubbing some algae off the side. You never want to stir up gravel/sand of planted tanks.

There's higher end fake wood stuff that looks quite real. Aquadecor stuff looks REALLY good but I don't think they sell just their fake wood pieces without buying their backgrounds as well. Also it's expensive as fuck.

The upside of fake wood is that it doesn't rot. Malaysian driftwood for instance is such a pain in the ass when it rots. Wood dust everywhere.

Spiderwood I think lasts a pretty long time though so that's not a bad option.

Itçs only ten gallons, now five gallons water. And the kuhlies are so sensitive.

I smell skunk in my backyard but don't see anything and it's a small yard too, I have been working on making a garden for the past week and every so often the smell of skunk comes around then leaves it's already happened 3 times but the third time my house began to stink I checked in the attic for anything but it did not smell as bad but in my backyard the smell was strong, I went to tell my neighbor he said he could hardly smell it even though it was strong for me we checked in both backyards and found nothing the smell also went away and I'm already getting pissed I have not seen one, my dog has not barked at anything either he even found a bat hanging on back neighbor's tree yet when the smell comes around he doesn't get alerted and my neighbors say their houses haven't stinked up either

This abomination of flesh and rot has been on my dog's back for months now and its just getting worse. It sarted a year or two ago from a cyst and is now a massive growth of scabby black rot and meat and its causing her constant pain and she can't stop fucking with it. I'm poor and really can't afford vet bills, can some friendly /an/ anons tell me what it is and more importantly how I can fix it for good at home? Nothing we've tried works.
