It's World Pangolin Day. For those who don't know, pangolins are:

1) The only scaled mammal in existance
2) Absolutely fucking badass
3) The most poached animal on Earth

They are mostly poached because they are highly valued in certain eastern societies (mostly China) for traditional medicine and cuisine. Currently, all 8 species of Pangolin are vulnerable or endangered.

The only thing the Chinese fear more than anything is having small penises. As such, it is IMPERATIVE that we create a strong cultural belief that eating Pangolin scales shrinks their dicks.

Please make memes about Pangolin scales shrinking dicks and post them on normie websites as well as Chinese websites. Together, I'm sure we can save these beautiful animals.

That's so genius and likely way more effective than all the half assed shit conservationists have been doing so far. If we could fake a couple scientific studies and get a few Chinese news outlets to report it, we'd have an amazing shot.

Have you ever met a """dog""" that was less than 30 pounds and wasn't a complete cunt?

They bark and snarl from their owners arms but put them on the ground and they become cowardly little bastards, yelping at the top of their lungs if another larger dog even sniffs them

They'll bite the back of your ankle then squeal like piglets if you so much as turn around threateningly

They're inbred little monsters that serve absolutely no purpose other than being purse accessories for middle aged white women, the type who wear sunglasses everywhere and demand to see your manager

They're an evolutionary joke that isn't even funny, I'd call them rats but then I'd have to apologize to the entire nation of Israel

I don't think that's true. Only reason I could think of them doing that is if they're super stressed out about something. Like, may more stressed out than the usual norm, which usually shouldn't happen unless you abuse it or you're being a real shit parent to the chinchilla.

I don't own one but:

1. They are expensive. $150 vs much less for the other two pets you mentioned.
2. They require unique care. Dust baths, cant get them wet and such.
3. They aren't cuddly. Most chinchillas don't like being held or petted. They like scratches though.
4. They are naturally timid so take a long time (weeks/months) to gain trust with owner, most people don't have the patience for that
5. Exotic pets so finding a vet to take care of them is more difficult/expensive.

What’s really disturbing is that it seems totally unprovoked — the dog didn’t act aggressively in any of the vision that we’ve seen and the dog had no idea what was going to happen when he went to the man

So about three months ago my kitten scratched my other cats eye. It was a dull discoloration at the time and the vet gave me oxflocacin for it, told me it was a scar.

Now its turned into this slightly raised bump. What can be done for her? Is she gonna lose her eye?

Vet fag here. Should be the cornea healing itself. Just keep an eye out for infection. The cornea may not heal fully but it shouldn't affect your cat's sight. If the spot remains and you want it gone, can do a keratotomy or corneal graft but you'll need big bucks.

We've come quite aware of invasive species. Look at Australia.
We have a bunch of ecologists studying ecosystem interactions and biologists indexing species and tracking down their numbers. We're quite fine.
We've made mistakes in the past (bunnies in Australia for example), but like I said, we're getting quite a good grasp on it. It's sparked quite the movement. Our forthcoming generations will be full preservationist.

Pic related has good info on studies typically cited by the anti-GM crowd and a meta-analysis on GM safety.

fun fact: as of 2017, there were only 153 "events" reviewed by the FDA. A transgenic 'event' is when a foreign gene is stably inserted into a genome.

>The verbal trick is to act as if people pointing this out need to prove their claim, such as from this anon >>2946933. They do not because the claim is fundamental reasoning. To deny this is to deny that there is risk in walking into a pitch dark chamber you've never been in before without a source of light. In actuality the claim that GMOs are safe and risk free needs to be supported with evidence, and a lot of it because it's a very bold claim.

Holy fucking shit retard. Just link me one journal instead of preaching your creationist tier, antiscientific fear mongering.

Not really. My yard is already full of shit from dogs, chickens, squirrels, etc.

A lab or poodle is bred to retrieve ducks so they naturally play fetch. A German pointer was bred to A Dachshund is bred to hunt Badgers in holes so they naturally burrow in your couch or blanket. A blue heeler is bred to heard animals so they naturally nip ankles/bite car tires. A pitbull was bred to fight so they naturally bite. This is my theory on them. While I agree not all pits are aggressive horrible killers they definitely run a higher risk of attacking than other breeds. Should they be outlawed or banned? No, but I believe it's the owners responsibility to know the risks with these dogs and accept it. I personally know of 2 well behaved loving pits that attacked a member of the family for no reason. What's your opinion?

My black roommate got his first dog and I was excited since I have been raised with dogs and hadn't had the time to get one because of uni. But my excitement turned sour when the nig brought home a adult rescue pitbull. Mind you as I said this was his first dog. And this dog has been the bane of my life. The thing bites growls, is very difficult to train, harasses my gf. I have had to the bulk of the training and these are the most stubborn aggressive breeds I have ever met.

Because of they way they are bred, many have anxiety issues. Being terriers, too, they are high energy and often go neglected and go a little crazy like any other high-energy breed would. I fostered a female pit bull who had been used to breed fighters, and she was very sweet and loyal, very quick to learn commands, but suffered from really bad separation anxiety. I think they are just a very anxious breed and need a more advanced owner to train them correctly from puppyhood.

I love dogs. I'm not skittish when a large lab or German spd runs up to me for pets/sniffs while I am running. I carry a knife because of pitbulls. Only this breed. Wish I didn't have to because extra weight but inevitably:
>owner is a woman, cannot control it on a leash, gets dragged where dog wants to go
>owner is spic, fixated on gophone from Walmart, oblivious to his dog wanting to approach me until I yell hey
I've watched a pit bull, on leash by a house wife, grab my beagle by the neck and thrash it around like a play toy in my own yard in a suburb growing up

Own your coping dog, limp wristed virtue signaler, but don't be mad when I stab it in the neck because I am trying to exercise on a trail and you didn't understand why 90% of the dogs in the adoption clinic were pits

No I'm not pol, I love dogs, you just bought a faggot dog bred to kill other dogs

Gator snappers are the more agreeable of the two species thanks to their lazy method of hunting. A gator snapper will just sit there and let you pass so long as you don't get near it's jaws, a common snapper will hunt you down to fuck your day up if you piss it off or it thinks there's food.
