Leeches
The most horrifying creature of them all. It has haunted human civilizations since the beginning of time.
Not even lampreys and malaria mosquitos come close to the primal fear in humans leeches can provoke.

I'm petsitting for the first time and I'm worried that one of the dogs I'm taking care of is breathing too fast during his sleep.

I don't know if I'm psyching myself out. It's 1am and I'm freaking out, convinced the dog ate something bad or he's going to suffer cardiac arrest and it'll be my fault.

When should I worry? What signs should I be looking for? When should I be going to the vet?

Why did he do it?

>>3234426
He was autistic and could not socialize with his aquatic co-workers well.
Then he found out about the asian wife meme and he searched for his love for life in shallow waters.
Finally, the autist found the hottest korean girl he imagined. But there was a huge mental barrier, he had to talk to her on the dry land. The autist had to drag his heavy body through rocks and sharp edges with his limbed fins.
He was halfway to make it, he was about to ask her out...
But he gave up, the autist decided to live in the shallow waters and fap to 2D-girls for the rest of his short life...

Well... The autist meet autistic thots like him and they begun to bang every single day until the thot got pregnant.
The autistic thot laid her eggs on the moist beach floor.
Their children lived permanently on the dry land and had very successful careers as tetrapods.

The autist bragged to his neighbours about being the great grandfather to the children who pioneered the tetrapod-industry until his eventual death.

Dumbest post in this thread. Even your precious science men can't agree on a clear definition of species.
>>
>>3242589
Wrong. God created each kind of animal with the ability to change within its limits.
Example: God made the ancestor of elephants that then adapted into several species and subspecies like the mammooth and the african elephant

>God created each kind of animal with the ability to change within its limits
I think the point evolutionists make is there aren't actually any limits.

other than that you agree with them.

Yup, it's still a lizard. In fact it's still a wall lizard. The only thing that changed was it's diet. No new organs, no legs changing into flippers, nothing.

Hello. 4 days ago me and my boyfriend were going home and we saw a little kitten in the rain.
We decided to take it home, care for it and eventually put it up for adoption.

Next day we took her to the vet, she had pneumonia, conjunctivitis and what else. My bf bought the medicine and, at night, she died.

Yesterday, our adult cat stops eating, and has a lot of yellow snot coming out of her nose. He took her to the vet.
1 hour ago, she died as well...

Everything was so abrupt, he sent me a message telling it and I still find it really hard to believe.

This is Safira's last photo...

Hey guys, so I've been planting these trees in the picture. I think I might have planted about 30 around. I've also been sowing a lot of these. I did the same with some other plants but there aren't as many of those where I live.
>>
>>3242752
Trees are planted close together because there will always be fatalitys. Deer rubbing against them and breaking trunks, insects, beavers, etc etc.
It's better to thin them out than have gaps that are below the canopy and planting replacements will have difficulty competing for sunlight.

I've planted Burr oaks on my property.
It will take them 150 years to get full grown. I will never see it. My children will never see it.
But someday, someone will sit under their glorious canopys.
