You can pick one prehistoric animal to bring back to life and place in the modern world. What would you pick and why?
Keep in mind the niches, location, environment, and competition it would have to face

Neanderthals were likely just as smart as we were. But were stubby and more muscular. Humans are much lanker in comparison. So when a lot of forests got wiped out and walking and running for prey in longer distances became thing...
Also wolves helped

But you have to keep in mind our ancestors barely survived having two bottleneck populations in the past. The rest are wiped out, we are the last human species. Even our subspecies is extinct.

tfw was considering a contract down in Dallas for 3 months and all my nope is now at maximum levels

Are these really Golden retriever? I’m about to buy one for my gf who’s dog died a couple months ago and she’s been trying to get another one with no luck. Owner sent me these photos and now I have some doubts. I’ve seen other Golden but something seems off about the parents. Are they too old or something? Or they’re not pure golden retrievers?

id be more concerned with the fact theyre living in squalor.

exposed beams, moldy wood, an unfinished floor, fuckin pallets laying around. looks like an abandoned construction site.

these are not good breeders
>>
>>2891787
That's clearly a hovawart, an ascended-tier breed which often gets mistaken for retrievers. Buy it
>>
>>2891787
What the hell, are they living in some shed or a basement?
If you want a mentally and physically healthy dog find a breeder that sends living room pics, has taken the little ones already to the vet before they move and maybe can hand you a pedigree.
Without, it's not a breeder but just a noob producing puppies for the cuteness or even worse, just for money. Those pictures look like it's just that, and this means your paying for two a dog that got shit food, no vet visits, no attention, didn't learn shit about normal household situations.
>>
>>2891787
Look at that shit basement
I bet those dogs never went to vet in their life
That retard breeder is doing this for money and he will scam you. This isn't legal and animal cruelty, you can call cops on him (that is if you are living in first world country, and not some shithole)
Enjoy your vet bills

If you're actually trying to get rid of the entire problem you'll need to locate the breeding site and either eliminate or treat it.

If you're just asking for personal deflecting then I'd vote anything that can eliminate your scents. Mosquitoes can detect your CO2 and other various olfactory outputs.

Just get a string and get your cat to chase and jump after it. Don't bother with all the fancy shit, cats will go crazy for the simplest toys.
>>
>>2891899
Playing, toys, crafting stuff to explore and clicker training.

>>2892081
>How play
Get a string or a stick and move it around, pretending to be prey. Moving it beneath cloth or carpet makes them go wild.
Get a stuffed toy and move it around, pretending to be an attacking cat. Take care of your fingers and wear a glove.
Throw little snacks around and teach your cat she needs to come back and touch your hand to get another onethrown. Then stand on top of some stairs for maximum workout.

>How much
Single young cats? Around 5 hours.
Old cats? Around 15 minutes.
Daily, but not in one sitting.

A box.
A simple cardboard box.

Put a treat in it sometime or some old clothes, or both.

Meow at the cat when you see it.
Give it a treat for talking to you in response.

Tie a ribbon to a stick and make them chase it.

Catnip or silver vine is interesting.
It gets them fucked up in a sexual way.

Minimize food being in the same place, try feeding in different areas.

Get a large gecko first. It's too much hassle for a beginner to breed fruit flies for a small gecko. I recommend crested, fat tails, house, leopard, pictus, and if you're willing to tame an aggressive yet beautiful animal, the tokay gecko.

Hi guys, any good sources of information on the care of box turtles?
>>
>>2892219
nah, they are pretty easy.

In fact, the gonatodes fuscus is an extremely easy gecko to keep, I recommend it as a first pet lizard, also easy to breed too.

They are truly remarkable. I adopted a retired racer at 3 and he has been so well mannered and affectionate from the very beginning. He's like velcro when I'm around but he has no issues when left alone. He had never been in a house before yet he's never had an accident, never whines or barks. Sleeps 18 hours a day as long as he gets his exercise. And their appearance is majestic, so lean and muscular. The only true concern is their thin coat and low body fat - can be an issue in very cold or very hot climates, and a surface level injury that wouldn't be a big deal with another breed can be far more serious with a greyhound. But looking at the other breed issues in this thread, I'll accept that one. They don't have hip issues, etc associated with other dogs of their size because of racing, as you said, which is great.

This part is obviously just anecdotal, but for a breed with such high prey drive he's always been fine around my girlfriend's cat too. We introduced them properly in a controlled neutral setting, with him muzzled and whatnot, and I'd still never leave them alone together, but he's always been aloof towards small animals. Maybe I lucked out.

That's not a strawman, it was a response for the dumb whataboutism. If pitbulls pose a much higher risk at killing or injuring civilians than other dog breeds, banning pitbulls is a perfectly valid reaction.
