Hogs easily, we've got a lot of them in the woods I live in, they're clever motherfuckers. Whenever I see one I shoot (never leave my house without my revolver) and nowadays I rarely spot one of the fuckers even though they keep shitting all over my land and when I'm inside I'll hear them outside. The only good thing I can say about having hogs on my land is that the corpses I drag down to the river keep the gators full, I can't even fucking eat them because the ones in my area are all riddled with parasites.

I dont get this

>swallow another animal
>they get into the softest part of my body
>they dont do massive internal damage

How do literally ALL animals swallow their prey without their prey fucking up their mouth? Its extremely soft tissue and the prey is usually still alive and has claws and teeth and stuff.

Why doesnt the rat in picture just start biting and clawing all around? I had many rats so i know they have no issue doing that, so if she does, how does the frog not care?

well this is the main reason you shouldn't feed your animals live rodents
a rodent will fuck up your reptile if it doesn't manage to kill them on the strike
you can tell what snakes for example are live fed in captivity or not because they'll be all fucked up with scars and bite marks

Don't feel too bad, if it was on the ground and still for long enough to mistake it for a leaf, it was probably on it's way out anyways, if not already dead.

I got some bladder/pond snails in my tank, presumably from some plants I got.

I'm going to take the tank apart soon and switch out the substrate. The inhabitants (a bunch of shrimp) will be put in an empty temporary tank.

What can I do to get rid of the snails and eggs on the plants and such? I don't want to kill the plants.

This but don't do pure bleach though or you'll kill your plants. It should be around a 1:20 bleach to water ratio.

look on ebay or amazon for No Planaria or Planaria Zero.

Alternately, get 2 or 3 baby Oscars. Theyll eat anything that moves. Return them to petco/smart in a week once they're done

also if you get No Planaria, you wont have to tear down your tank

I think its like peak disappointed milf. Kinda lame husband she would almost for sure cheat on, and a cutie for a daughter who will for sure have feelings that need to be resolved when her parents divorce. Like just imagine, you go over her house when the husbands out, listen to her complain how boring he is, how she wants a real man, a younger man. Give her what she wants. Give it all. On the way out, shoot a wink at Coraline, let her know this is our secret too. God damn im bout to rewatch this

Google reverse search sucks now. I don't know what they changed, but Yandex consistently provides better results.
The only drawback with Yandex is that you often have to scroll past a dozen Russian links before finding an English site.

Seems really inconsistent with weight but eastern gorillas are more robust with larger skulls and jaws than western ones so are the largest.

That does it. He's officially my favorite now.

>She had a habit of touching the glass that separated the public from the gorillas, while making eye contact with Bokito and smiling at him. Although smiling is often associated with submissive or non-aggressive behavior in gorillas,[4] eye contact is a practice that is discouraged by primatologists, as apes are likely to interpret eye contact as a challenge or a form of aggressive display.[citation needed] Zoo employees had previously warned her against doing this, but she continued, claiming a special bond with him: in an interview with De Telegraaf she said, "When I smile at him, he smiles back".
