So many blue jays lately. They're eating so many peanuts I can't keep it refilled fast enough and they squawk like crazy one even pecked on my door - they know I have the food and I bring it through that door.

I guess I'm not alone because unsalted peanuts are sold out or in low supply everywhere I looked yesterday. I found some in petsmart of all places (usually get them at agricultural or grocery stores).

I see them put one peanut in their crop then try to pick up another sometimes they can't fit a second one but they sure try. In the shell peanuts so they're pretty large.

The 17th was National Pet Bird day and I was meaning to make a thread.
Do any of you own any parrots or birds? Ask for help/any questions or post your birds. They truly are the most rewarding pets I've ever had.

yes, and let's also ban human ownership aka hierarchical society and systems of property. humans must live naturally, like orangutans.

That's because you're inviting them to fuck up your house if you do. These birds get bored and start tearing things up when they're not searching for food.

What could the average housecat lineage evolve into if all other predators would be wiped off the earth?

Every single angle of this creature fills me with genuine disgust. I want to see it killed. It would fill me with the same satisfaction as pulling a weed, or cleaning up a mess.

Man is beautiful. The prognathic apes and wall-eyed lemurs are hideous and lowly creatures that only existed to give rise to man and then go extinct. Felines and canines also, are beautiful, and like us, evolved from revolting vermin - like us, represent the drive to become something great. To corrupt them with the features of a hominid in such a way the resulting creature appears to be some kind of lemur is the greatest and most unnatural sin. It is the abhorrent devolution of one noble creature into the primordial filth of another's past. It's a statue cut into bricks. It's a temple reduced to gravel. It is the most perverse destruction of creation.

Kill it. KILL IT.

>What could the average housecat lineage evolve into if all other predators would be wiped off the earth?
You'd probably end up with animals nearly identical to Cougars, Cheetahs and Lions pretty quickly (at least on a geologic timescale).
After a bit longer you'd have cats with slightly different body plans filling the niches of most other carnivorans. It wouldn't be a "cats only" world though, some vacant niches might end up getting filled by other groups adapting into predatory niches.

Turns out it’s some sort of Arabian Tree-Toed Gekko, which is only like native to some small island off of the coast of Oman. What should I have done with it? Is it invasive? Threw it in my backyard

No, it's a Mediterranean house gecko. They are invasive but there's so many of them that killing that 1 won't change anything
>>
>>4310758
They look very similar to me. Only difference appears to may be eyes? The website I went to even said they’re similar looking. Do they travel in packs or something? I’m assuming there’s more in the area
>>
>>4310771
Just a little house gecko.
They're harmless and they eat bugs.
I had one living in my porchlight that would come out and eat moths at night. The light bulb kept him warm through the winter.

AKA chilean squirrels and not the chinchilla kind.
Bros, im at my wit's end.
She INSISTS on pooping on her horizontal wheel even tho shes constantly spinning on it, i went to great lenghts to protect the ball bearing from her poop and piss because it crusted up in less than a week when i left it exposed. Also, i had to specifically cut off part of the cage to make a new door for access to the wheel because it gets shitted up DAILY.
How the hell do i get her to stop shitting where she dabs her little feet on all the time? I dont wanna hold her after knowing her feet have been there.
Its made out of a frisbee i guess just regular plastic and when i WD40d the ball bearing some of it leaked over the frisbee but i cleaned it well before reinstalling and there was no smell.
Please help

Married to an injury attorney who also represents dogbite victims. 8/10 calls he gets for these are pits and pit mixes. Most recent one, a baby girl got her face eaten off by a family pit. They're almost always familiar dogs to the victim, and always so gory. And these aren't "muh bad owners!!1" because really bad owners typically won't have insurance to cover this type of shit to go after (read:no case worth taking unfortunately). So just the cases he takes can be assumed the hellhounds were raised correctly. Usually "would never hurt a fly" until they do. He's even considered going dog bite full time because of how frequently they happen and because of how eager insurance companies are to settle when they see a mauled child.
We have a very nice roof over our heads almost exclusively because they are a reliably shitty, remarkably aggressive, type of dog.

But it's the owner, dontcha know.
