Thank you God, for not making me be born as a wild animal in Africa
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
I dunno but even SA is better than Africa on any layer of life. Reptiles are far more chill and hunt you less. Some are full time herbivores, something that doesn't happen in Africa.
But just look at the abundance of everything there. More fish, like, a lot fucking more, those rivers are thriving with fish, more crocodiles, big cats aren't going at each other's throats 24/7, mustelids can grow giant and live relatively safe in pack, unbothered by predators outside of the rare encounter with a jaguar. No drough seasons, for now (it's changing rapidly).
I'd even take being a damn penguin in Antarctica.
Shit forgot to mention capybaras, the dozens of possum species they got over there. Shit is a paradise of the kind that isn't really possible in Africa.
Oppossums wouldn't last a day if they were introduced in Africa.
China works for this prayer as well, but for another reason.
Sir, this is just animals and nature.
Personally, I prefer Europe. Specifically Switzerland, Austria or the Faroe Islands.

I think he dropped the camera in a small glass aquarium and then placed both in the water.
Keep doing good work anon, this is my favorite joke to come out of this board as of late.
I've definitely made some holes mad before on this board. I said women think it's effective to talk to their pets to discipline them and thats stupid (I wasn't this nice back then but not the point). even something like raising their voice would be more useful, or a spray bottle or (roughly) tapping/shoving them is more effective. but dumb cunts insist that speaking english to an animal is the most effective way to make it understand you.
You stomping your feet and seething everytime its posted is part of the meme.

do animals realize that we wear clothes? if not, aren't they freaked out by the fact that we costantly change skin at will?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I think most domestic animals are scent oriented and aren't intelligent enough to care how we are dressed. I've seen people wear Halloween masks and freak monkeys the hell out because they're intelligent enough to recognize the difference.
The only reactions I've ever had were pets staring when I change clothes (mostly reacting to the movement then pondering the shed clothing for a second) and when me changing clothes really upset a duckling I had. My dad gave him to me when I was wearing the blue uniform we only wore for church day at school, and he got used to me and comfy with me really quickly. Then I wore a red uniform shirt the next day and he did his very distinct "where is mom" call despite me being right there with him, but after he got used to me again he didn't have another issue.
You world is populated by things beyond your comprehension and just viewed abstractly or topically because it would impossible to understand all of them but that doesn't stop you from using them or ignoring them. It's pretty much the same for them sure it's magical but they can't use it, eat it or have any need for it so they largely just ignore it. Although I'm convinced they don't think it's a living part of you since birds have never tried to groom my shirts or cared about being delicate with the buttons.
They consider them objects. Animals used to see cars are not afraid of them, of course they're still cautious. Paradoxically, it's when a human gets out of a car that they're alarmed, because it means that human has some business to do there where they live. Walking around will spook them far more than wandering in your car.
They notice but they largely don't care. Like how we sleep under bedsheets and quilts, they don't flip out over that, it's just something we do.
Cats for example basically think us as giant, slightly retarded cats that walk on two feet. They see we don't have as much fur as them so we put on fur and sometimes that fur is different from yesterday's fur. But the scent and general dimensions, face etc. all stays the same so they know it's us.

I could probably find it. But are those even allowed on a blue board? I know animal cruelty is generally banned, but not sure about natural predation or things like that. And it's not like the mods ever fucking bother leaving IRC to interact with or answer this kind of shit for a community. So best I can say is google it.

Everybody here hates them.

Pretty neat how they're instrumental in the creation of mangrove islands in the Caribbean though.

While clearing up my old backpacks to dispose, I found two lotus seeds from approximately over ten years ago. When I put them into warm water, one floated and one kept being submerged, which I cut a bit and put into soil of my pitcher plant as it's the only plant that I have whose roots need to stay wet.
Any chance that seed can sprout?

Are you trying to break the clay with sand/gravel? That won't work.
I would just build some kind of raised garden bed (or even just a pile of rocks), fill it with cheap succulent potting mix from the local garden centre/hardware store and plant succulents in that.
It usually costs a lot of money to properly remediate clay soil. And most of the time people essentially just create a hole full of good soil within in the bed of clay. That hole will just fill up with rainwater and drown whatever you planted there.
Just go above-ground. Get creative. Pile up rocks and shit and plant your succulents in there.

You should sex it, because this will be extremely relevant as to its size. Females are significantly larger than males.

This, you could of course just wait, but it will help to know ahead of time so you can plan to upsize your enclosure accordingly.
