As it should be.

This is your daily reminder to want a platypus.
Would a pet platypus be just for show just like venomous snakes and tarantulas? (Talking about little to no handling)
I may not live in a world where I may snuggle a puggle but such a world is worth fighting for.

>dinosaur that no one said had feathers doesn't have feathers
Randall Carlson
I myself do not know where these mass graves are but Randall does a podcast where he presents slideshows and power points on entire Pleistocene extinction event.
It's really an eye-opener since he has tons of evidence on the matter and no one has been able to refute his claims

You just know

Animals in bathrooms that shouldn't be in bathrooms.

Bonus points if the animal destroyed shit or made a huge mess.
Double points if it's in a public bathroom.

I was in a very rural area in Brazil a few months ago and almost every time I went to the bathroom there would be a frog somewhere, often inside the toilet. It's not so bad, you just scoop them up and throw them back outside.

Same in my grandparents run-down house in a rural area in Malaysia . Going into the bathrooms was always an adventure. There could be anything including giant spiders, huge beetles, centipedes, roaches, geckos, and frogs. Turn on the light and night and you almost always see something scurry away. The window of the bathrooms were glass slats where anything can come in and out freely. I enjoyed finding red eyed tree frogs the most.

holy shit what a retarded bird, no wonder they're going extinct.
The one on sivatherium? Cant link it here unfortunately.

What's this no ecosphere thread?
well what is an ecosphere you might ask
the answer is they are jars you fill with mud and water from your local lake/pond/river to only provide it sunlight

thus creating a mini-ecosystem of algea, fungus, tiny crusteceans and worms
some often use fairy shrimps

One of you prolly has one and most are bound to be interested in making one thus this thread

hopefully i can get a conversation going since i'm not that experienced with this and there hasn't been much conversation happening regarding this interesting hobby

also the pic is from a channel "Life in Jars" its the one that originally got me interested in this hobby

My first try from last year quickly turned into an apocalyptic moldosphere. I put it away from the window for some months and recently there's algae growing around the gravel and soil parts.

What did I do wrong? Too moist? Too hot? Ketchup bottle too small?
I'm willing to try again bros, but I need some advise.
my ecospheres doesnt fit your definition, do you want to see them?
hey why not
I have a venus fly trap that isn't doing very well and I plan to get rid of it, but the soil is populated very well with springtails. If I mix that soil with some other soil to fit a variety of plants better, will this make a good basis for a ecosphere? Springtails especially are good at getting rid of mold and I've grown a liking to these little guys, so why not build them their own ecosystem?
I've been thinking about using an old kimchi jar to make a native terrarium since I've started watching SerpaDesign.

again, just so we're clear:
you have evidence of this, yes?
Evidence is in the action that was taken. Only low testosterone men or females will make decisions like that.
so no.
just needed to make sure.
Are you still on about this? Yes, it was purely economic factors that they were in the same enclosure :^)
me potentially being wrong doesn't make your explanation any more correct, and as you have clearly shown, you can provide no evidence to support it.

I always avoid the comments section of wolf-related videos. The 'wolf fandom' is among the cringiest things on the internet.

>that was just a coincidence

It seems to be more than a coincidence that domestication also drastically alters appearance. Look at that fox domestication program in Russia.

Anecdote to domestication syndrome: sleeping on the ground more often through camping. Spending more time outside in nature. Aloha!
Depends on the pet. With dogs we've already selectively bred them for companionship for millennia and both sides of the arrangement benefit heavily from the other. In a way it's a symbiotic relationship. For a lot of other animals I agree though, especially birds. Not only do birds need a lot of room to fly in that they just can't get in human captivity, they're also incredibly intelligent and need mental care in addition to physical care from being removed from their natural environments, again, something most pet owners simply can't do.

Feel free to discuss anything about birds here, or blogpost about the birds you share your life with.

Remember to treat birds nicely and give them a good variety of food instead of feeding them supermarket seed mix all their lives. For example, many parrots will benefit from a well-made bird chop.
eg: https://birdtricksstore.com/blogs/birdtricks-blog/chop-mix-for-your-birds

If you are new to bird keeping, learning about the basics of clicker training and target training is a good start.
