If you can't see what you're shooting at why the fuck would you pull the trigger? Out of all the good answers you choose one that makes you sound like a psycho.

Not that anon but there is a difference between seeing the deer and seeing that it has a collar on. Scopes irl aren’t like the hubble telescope. Take another look at the picture of the two hunters, notice how dark it is. Unless that collar glows in the dark it doesn’t stand out like it would during the day.

>Hunter logic

In zero parts of the world is this the case.

Do you know why deer in certain areas can be destructive? Because man already upset the balance by killing and driving off predators in the first place.
>>
>>3215496
deer are only overpopulated for the amount of habitat there's available.

their current numbers wouldn't actually be a problem if we hadn't turned it all into pastures and parks.

So how do they usually make these, put outer corpses of the animals over robot parts and have them hang around the living ones of their kind?

More or less the same. No one would give af about global warming though, and the far Northern and Southern regions of the planet would probably still be wild frozen frontier.

I'm pet sitting for a friend for the next 6 months. She has two leopard geckos, though I had never seen her tank setup.

It's awful.
I don't know if it's terribly rude of me to buy a new setup for them while she's gone, but I can't stomach seeing them in tiny enclosures.
She has two and they're not even housed together.

Any advice on how to do this without seeming like an asshole?

It's good to have some air flow between the heat mat and your table. Leopard Geckos usually pick the same spot to shit, so it's really easy and cheap to clean up after them if you use paper towels. I use coconut fiber in my gecko tank, but that can definitely get messy.. Eco Earth retains heat well and is super cheap, so I would totally recommend it. However, I've never heard of paper towel catching fire because of a heat pad. You'll be fine, they're in a MUCH better home now.
>>
>>3215105
Thank you! They like the heat pad, they've been laying down near it for a bit.
My next challenge is handling. One nipped at me the first day I got them, and I'm use to really friendly outgoing pets (rats).
I would love to handle them regularly, eventually
>>

>>3212025
If there is no occasion to pretend it's a present maybe you can pretend it's one of your or a friends old or bought/gifted-and-never-used enclosure.
>>
>>3215143
Just keep handling them every day, or every other. I take mine out every evening, she loves exploring beds and couches. As long as you scoop them slowly and with caution, they'll eventually start to trust you. Some take longer than others.

Feeding time is a great opportunity to bond with your gecko and make them like you more.

>>3215422
It's almost Christmas, just play it off like a Christmas gift unless she adamantly doesn't celebrate it.

/an/ have you ever trained a cat?
Do you know anything about it?

I’m getting a kitten or a few years old cat, and I will probably need to have her travel with me most of the time, I want to train her to follow basic commands, and most importantly use the bathroom at certain times

Lol, cats are too intelligent to be coaxed into doing dumb stuff.
>>
>>3213225
That's why you should get a cat that already shows doglike behaviour, not really old but around a year or two.
With a young kitten it's kind of a gamble. Maybe you can become a foster home, give all kittens dog training and keep the one that reacts to it best.
>>
>>3213144
What do you use your pet for? Nothing!? Weird! It’s almost as if they’re there for companionship and that’s it!
>>
>>3215438
Most are not even for companionship, they are just there to be watched and cared for.
>>
>>3215245
That is one of the better ways to go about training a cat, and using a target stick especially. Read up more about clicker training in general and remember that you have to be very consistent and precise to get much use out of it.
For a bathroom schedule; if you feed at specific times, shitting will be more predictable. You can look up techniques for training a dog to shit on command, but I’ve never tried them on a cat.
