No; it looks more like the ostrich simply didn't want to bother. It sees a slow, weak human that's afraid of it. It doesn't want to expend the energy to kill it.

This is the same sort of shit that can sometimes make it possible for a cat and bird to cohabitat; as long as there is no clear advantage to bothering doing it and the cat is lazy enough, the cat won't just hunt the bird. A well-taken care of lazy cat that doesn't care about fun and has food won't bother with a bird... Ostriches ARE dangerous, but that doesn't mean they have to kill you.

Because for some reason I have to know everything about all of nature to participate here. Right. Okay. Makes sense.

Last I heard, boards on 4chan don't require you to have wasted several years of your life on some degree just to participate. Why don't you contribute positively instead of spouting off about some dumb shit? As if you're somehow better. You are exhibiting the same level of unhinged degenerate behavior as everyone else on this anonymous website.

This thread is dedicated to all animals of the reptilia and amphibia classes. Topics include, but are not limited to: geckos, snakes of all kinds, frogs, salamanders, newts, turtles, tortoises, and much more. Before asking a question, do a search on the internet to see if it has been answered
Classifieds for finding breeders and products:
>morphmarket.com
>kingsnake.com
>faunaclassifieds.com
>reptilescanada.com (Canadian breeders)
>caudata.org
Most forums will have a "for sale" section on them, so look for that, especially if you have a specific herp you want. Craigslist can also be a good source for cheap aquariums, and make sure to check for any reptile expos that occur in your area.

When asking a question, make sure to include these details:
>Type and size of animal
>Enclosure dimensions
>Humidity and temperature
>Type of substrate
>The decor you use

Conservatively six fully grown (i.e. 6" or even more), but if you were to mitigate some of their shit (literally), e.g. bare bottom, tons of filtration, you could probably get away with more.

Just my opinion though.

Would a 20G tall fit? Super cheap and common.

technically yes
practically, as in could i comfortably get into the tank and actually maintain it? no. Maybe if it was a big planted no water change tank with ultra low bioload but i want a betta and khuli loach tank.

Am i to understand the flimsy piping and connectors that come with (aqua one) canister filters - which fall apart if I jiggle then 4-5 times - need no extra fixation?

Can we have an invasive species thread?

The topic fascinates me although we really should be getting our shit together on this issue.

Pic related. Burmese pythons became an invasive species in Florida after Hurricane Andrew destroyed a reptile breeding facility allowing them to escape and reproduce. They are tremendously destructive and have even been spotted at the Kennedy Space Center.

Dogs have real uses in sheep herding. That's also the only reason anyone should have a dog.

Cats have no uses at all and should be banned along with recreational dog ownership

since I'm finally trying to make a return to /an/ I thought this would be a good way of getting back into the swing of things.

Pic related is the Desmostylia, the only known extinct order of marine mammals.

I don't know if they're super obscure but I don't see them mentioned often.

Pyrotherium is an extremely interesting extinct mammal only found in South America. People aren't sure if it is related to elephants (which wouldn't make sense given that elephants were still on Africa when they evolved, which was split off from other continents), or if it just convergently evolved to look like an early elephant in South America.

>>3838342
They're still part of the order cetacea, right? That order is still around. Desmostylia straight up ended with no descendants.

Why did jaws never truly evolve among insects? It enables a lot more powerful bite by having a mobile and static half, instead of two mobile limbs acting against each other.
