Getting one shipped is no big deal. In the end you'll probably end up paying the same again in shipping, but even fancy betta breeders dont charge that much for what goes into a really nice healthy fish. $30?-40? The difference in quality will astound you, even after being in a bag in a box for a day and a half they look better than a cup betta. I will always give a big nudge towards wilds though. Pricey but gorgeous, and you can keep them together!

But that's the trade-off. Now you can decide if you want to get another one when it dies.

I have this cute bird, which came from a nearby wood. He sometimes escapes from the room I keep him into, then comes back on its own after some hours for some reason.
The strange thing is, I never heard him chirp once; however, sometimes, I can see his stomach twitching... is it normal?

I'm scared, is euthanasia really the right thing? My cat has terminal lymphoma cancer and they're saying it's the right thing to do but I don't think I can make the decision. She's on strong pain meds and still eating but they say it's getting worse every day. I don't think i could live with myself if I made that decision because I know my own belief is I'd rather live through pain.

It's cruel to blow money at the vet and make it wonder why you are hurting it. Have a fun day then open 2 barrels of buckshot while he's asleep outside.

DO NOT LISTEN TO THESE PEOPLE ANON. Hear me out, and this is the true blackpill of /an/

Euthanizing your pets is wrong. Logically, completely wrong. Now my family euthanized their pets and I get it, but now that I'm mature I will never do that for my own animals.

Animals aren't like humans. They want to live, no matter how much pain they're in, they will usually always fight to the end. When you see prey struggling against predators, even as they're being eaten alive, you can understand the insane will of survival in them. It's something that humans have had decay away, but it remains in our pets and you should respect that.

Regardless of how YOU feel, and regardless of how you THINK your pet feels, you shouldn't do it. Imagine your child has terminal cancer, and it's causing them a great deal of pain, but you cannot communicate verbally with them. Wouldn't you want to play it safe and let them live out their life with you, instead of fucking killing them?

You are literally deciding that you know what your animal wants and are removing the final experiences of your loved one from ever happening. Please, don't euthanize your pets. They love you, they love life, and they want to stay with you as long as possible.

Is it possible to get a tanuki as a pet?

>Baby beardie not eating

I force fed this morning because he has not eaten in a week. Trying to keep it down to 2 mealworms a feeding to not overdo it but he is drinking whenever I spray him and he is basking constantly? Any thoughts? Hes got a vet appt on tues.

Also he has pooped in the time since he started not eating so I do not believe it is impaction although it was runny.

Mustard and collard with blue berry chopped fine.

Crickets.

0 interest. He got the 2 worms I gave him down and I am letting him bask. Gonna check and see if he will take anything in an hour or two.

Mine is an adult and she still refuses vegetables until I sprinkle a touch of calcium powder on them. You could try that if you haven't.

>>3192817
He was having no problems being picky about crickets when I first picked him up.

I will try and keep him up with the worms I have (Fuck crickets in general).

He has perked up since eating about an hour ago. Gonna give him 2 more hours to chill and see hows hes feeling about 2 more. He is only 2-3 months old so it is crucial I get him eating again.

They are, they provide a habit to several species of animals and are and natural occurrence due to Rain Shadows and other-such things.

>What will the fauna eat?

the trees he's planting since deer are overpopulated in most of their range compared to how much land there's available for them, then they'll overpopulate even more and those fields will be shitty grassland again.

nope, I hadn't heard this! Thanks for the info. I noticed that they need brushing to keep their coats silky but I'll make sure to increase the amount I groom them. I like the idea of using the yarn too. I think that it would be neat to have a cozy scarf or something made by my buns.

I have heard about them getting scared to death, freaky stuff.
Yeah their poop is pretty easy to clean and doesn't smell too much. There's carpet in some areas and hardwood in others. I could just keep them confined to the hardwood areas, probably would need to put a gate up to block them from going down the stairs.

What's the appeal of these disgusting things? Can you teach them tricks? Do they show any kind of appreciation or affection for their owners? They really seem like the kind of pet that weirdos buy because they're "different."
>>
>>3192108
They are not intelligent whatsoever. About as intelligent as a fish, or less so. I often see them trying to eat rocks (thats why you must ensure rocks are large enough in the tank). They are very easy feeders however. They snap at live food very aggressively, which is entertaining for some people. You can reliably count on axolotls eating their food every time, which is not so with many other amphibians/reptiles/inverts etc.
I get so many people that visit that are absolutely obsessed with them though and think they have "human faces" and that they are insanely cute. They are the most popular species in my department for some reason.
