Nice doggo, I had a chiweenie that looked like that.

That's Anisocoria. There are several possible causes, some simple like inflammation, others life threatening such as cancer But I wouldn't say any of them are "nothing to worry about". Take it to the vet.
>>
>>3057542
You should be very worried. Has the dog recently received a hard blow to the head? I would say “take it to the vet”, because that’s what we always say, but maybe not in this case. This is usually concussion or brain cancer and the vet won’t help you much with either, any more than a modern hospital and poor-person insurance could help you. Assuming a pointless vet visit would be a financial burden, keep him in a dark quiet place for the day and carefully check again tomorrow.

Corvids are far more adapted to desert environments than psittacines and most of the latter who do live in deserts are endangered or near-endangered. Climate change is going rape parrots more than anything else.

Parrots that live in desert areas live in Africa, where niggers capture and sell them. This is the real issue, not climate.

corvids in africa get captured for the pet trade too and they aren't endangered because of it. even the corvids in china where people literally eat animals alive aren't endangered. enjoy dead genera walking

Crow is fine too. Especially Eurasian hooded crow.
>corvids in africa get captured for the pet trade too and they aren't endangered because of it.
Not in such quantities.
Anyway, Aussie parrots seem to do just fine in desert area.
> even the corvids in china where people literally eat animals alive aren't endangered.
Maybe because nobody (humans) eats corvids? (Though I'm not 100% sure, chinks can make burrito or tea out of anything).

>Why do you only have one rat? I mean it makes sense considering how much of a fuckup you've been in the few days since you've bought the rat but did you literally not read anything about this animal you're committing to?
I don't have only one rat, I have 3. But other 2 do not just off me like that. In fact, no rat I ever kept just jump off my hand on the floor and scurry under the bed, I wasn't used to someone so hyperactive.

My Syrian was also a NEET shut-in... she always hoarded the food from bowl back home and slept, ate, and pooped in her little house. But thankfully she always peed in another corner of her box.

Maybe the house you gave your Syrian is too big or maybe the cage is too cramped? Do you have a picture of your setup?

At the moment only thisy the orange thing is her sleeping. You can see she stacked poo on her food. Maybe its to mark it as hers?
>>
>>3057957
Yeah mine did that too, during her sleeping hours she will drowsily wake up to eat and after eating she will poop and throw her poop away randomly in a convenient direction (usually towards the food).

I don't know if it's fucked up pet shop breeding or if it's natural in Syrians. I just grabbed the food/poop mix everyday and removed the poops from it and placed the food back.

I found this oddly profound.

Imagine being a 100+ year old creature, particularly a seagoing creature. For 100+ years you've just cruised around the ocean, eating food, the same thing, more or less, for 100+ years.

I'm sure (or at least hope) it's an "ignorance is bliss" type scenario, but honestly reflecting on this made me really grateful to be a human. Variety is the spice of life, and while life isn't always good or spicy, it is generally interesting.

I just cannot fathom being a 100+ year old sea creature. It almost sounds like a hell.

Adwaita was a Seychelles tortoise who belonged to a governor of India, and while there's no hard documents of his birth he was believed to have been born in the late 1700s and was somewhere between 200-250 years old when he died of an infection during to a cracked shell in 2006. He lived most of life in a botanical garden in Kolkata, which I suppose isn't too bad of a place for a tortoise.

I doubt centipedes are even half as good as spiders when it comes to catching flying critters likes mosquitoes
>>
The only reason I'm okay with them is since I started seeing them in my house there have been less carpet beetles
>>
Never seen one, and my house is full of silverfish niggers in winter. I wish there was at least one somewhere in my place, that way I'd know the bugs are taken care of. I only have weak spiders that make shit tier webs and never catch anything, expect one or two better spiders in my cupboards but they eat worms in the bread. That means nobody is killing my mosquitoes and that's just sad

I've found the best possible method for controlling home pests of all kinds, including centipedes, is to get a dehumidifier and run it 24/7. Arthropods seem to have a problem with low levels of humidity

>Another surprise in their research came from raccoons, those clever masked bandits. The raccoon brain is the size of a cat brain, but it holds as many neurons as a dog’s. The ratio of the raccoon’s brain size to its number of neurons resembles that of some primate brains.
>“The very large number of neurons that we found in the raccoon cortex fits very nicely with the lore about raccoons,” Herculano-Houzel said. “It matches with how incredibly ingenious these little creatures are and how good at problem solving they are when it comes to finding food.”
