Either ants or termites that start out normally, but soon a select few grow to be specialized to migrate through seasonally greening deserts. The males can't fly, so instead of dispersing them a few females grow large enough to carry as many of her sisters as possible, and the queen. A few will either grow larger mandibles or acid spitters to protect the mobile colony from any would be predators, while clamping their velcro legs around the large ant. Maybe a few could grow their mandibles into clamps to hold up shade so they can travel in the day. Though any of the ants that grow these modified mouthparts will need the smaller regular ants to feed them.

man-eating ants
let me get this straight here,

driver ants evolving a sub species of driver ants have evolved to cuck humans by stronger mandibles and evolving different castes to hunt humans in different environments (eg homes and outside), also having evolved better eye's because obvious. they also are nocturnal and have evolved to be immune to pesticides

also bigger manibles and have colonies of 100s of queens and 1 inch workers and 5 inch majors

It's aquatic, and knows to float about conserving energy until a good source of food is within reach. Then it uses what energy it has to secure that food and consume it. Then it floats about digesting for a while. It's a good strategy.

Guy in the corner got a shitbull, I can't go to take the trash to the container without the fucker going and smelling me sometimes. It doesn't want to attack me it's genuinely friendly but I know for a fact that they can snap because it's their instinct and it's not their fault but their stupid owner.

I'm not saying not to have a pitbull, just keep it in your property fuckhead.
>>
>>2888386
What people need to realize is that Pitbulls don't hate people, they don't hate other animals.

If a pitbull around you is friendly then he's 100% not faking it they're not evil masterminds or something like that waiting for you to lower your guard. They just snap like a non-domestic animal would and they happen to be strong so you're going to get injured, hell if your cat was the size of a pitbull you'd be in trouble too when he decided to throw a tantrum.

Why do shelters make it as cumbersome and difficult as possible for you to adopt a cat? Do they actually genuinely want to kill cats after confining them in cages for months?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>2891898
shelters are a meme anyway. You think they won't kill the cats they sell at the mall if they don't sell?

Well protip: they aren't at a shelter with a bunch of toxoplasmosis infected old ladies armed with these forms, they came from puppy mills, and they go back and become food if they don't sell at the pet store
>>
Because they get sick of people adopting cats just to dump them back there a month later.

>my landlord is making me get rid of it
>it doesn’t like my other animals
>I don’t have time/money for it
>it attacked my toddler (who was swinging it around while I filmed it for my facebook single mommy’s group)

All that shit can be avoided if the rescue has your basic information and can see if you’re a suitable home before handing the animal over.
>>
>>2891905
This, and if they think you're going to kill it or not take care of it then it's better off being euthanized. It's a hard call very, very often. Some shelters and individual people are stricter than others. You not being able to adopt a single cat does not put a dent in the population either. Anyone who works with animals be it a shelter, vet or petstore employee who cares, you see all the bad and very few good.
>>
>adoption agreement for ants
>>
>>2891898
Because people in general are morons and they got tired of "oh I'll adopt a cat and bring it back for some stupid reason down the line".

Alright Anons, over a half a week ago I've noticed that my largest angelfish has had red pointy thingies coming from his pooper (he is also a bit chubby now, somewhat concerning). A quick search on Google confirmed that these were camallanus worms. Since then, most of my research on these red death sentences have only given me conflicting information (e.g. "Levimasole only paralyses the worms" vs "Levimasole kills the worms"). Any personal experiences with these bastards that resulted in successful treatment?
Is it true that shared equipment between tanks can cause cross contamination, or that most of these fuckers are immune to Fenbendozle?

Yeah basically just a large dim tank with sand and a few low light corals or plants growing in the back. Also put some little cheap gobies or even guppies.

But that's not the problem, the problem is finding a nautilus for sale.
>>
>>2891808

Finding a nautilus is easy. Finding one not half dead from shipping is not.

Also you need a large, tall tank. No light, no sand just a few pieces of rock.

Feed them a variety of frozen seafood.

T. Actually kept nautilus
>>
They were in The hobby for a while.

They get stuck in corners, need a chilled tank and do best with a very tall tank. Ultimitly specalized critters who migrate verticly in the open ocean every day and need specialized care.

My chinchilla's feet seem to bleed at random intervals, with blood getting all over his platforms. Sometimes it's days between, sometimes it's months.

There's nothing at all that's remotely sharp in his cage, so I have no idea what's going on.

it's not either or. you can use both. green fresh herbs and grass should be provided imo but they do not provide a good nesting material to hide in like hay does.

I think that flowers are something inherently disgusting. I mean, are people aware what a horrible thing these "flowers" are? I mean, basically it’s an open invitation to all insects and bees, “Come and screw me”, you know? I think that flowers should be forbidden to children.
