You have no idea what you are talking about
It's kind of hard to piece together how an ancient creature looked and lived when all you have is a few fragments, anon. It's not like some dinosaurs where full skeletons were discovered.

Give me a koi pond and dig it out of the ground for me. How do I know I can leave it behind for a month during winter and then find it half-frozen, with snow and ice over it?

Aquariums are smaller and require constant maintenance, maybe if I made the koi pond its own natural ecosystem, I could travel around and the fish in the pond would still be fine?
Possibly better posted in /aq/, however:

1) You'd need a HUGE pond if you want it to be a natural ecosystem, e.g. one without active filtration that requires maintenance.
2) Koi ponds do freeze over during winter. It's fine. Make sure it's deep enough below the frost line to have enough space for the semi-hibernating fish. If they are healthy to start, they will have no problem surviving the winter.
3) Koi ponds can be far more maintenance than an aquarium. My planted aquarium for instance I only do maintenance (water change, trimming plants, rinsing pre-filter sponge) once a month, and could easily go longer and the Nitrate would still be 0 ppm.
4) For ponds, you can get professionals to design and build it for you, and they will most definitely offer a maintenance service as well. (Some places also offer aquarium maintenance services as well.)

Snowpocalypse weather. At least 3 feet of heavy packed snow on the ground. Enough wind to make that spooky wooshing sound that you can hear from inside. Being glad you still have power but still expecting to lose it at some point. Staying home because you know you can't go anywhere. I want to live further up north.
depends on season
heavy snow in winter, cool and clear in spring/fall, and in summer hot but pouring with rain heavy enough to completely deench you in a minute or two of standing outside, bonus points for a thunderstorm
maximum comfy for a walk in the woods, just make sure you leave any non-waterproof stuff behind or it'll be completely ruined
when inside, heavy as fuck rain.

>owner selling a 10 weeksold gsd
Is this a red flag? Does it happen often, getting rid of a new puppy after ~2 weeks?
Having dog not interested in him is very important as having dogs that are really into him. He needs to understand that not every dog will play with him. Avoid actual unstable aggressive dogs of course. However, having my dog hanging out with just some dogs that are just neutral and ignoring him did calm down my dog energy a lot whenever he's around other dog in long term.
you have to ask questions. the imaginations of people on the internet will not lead you to the truth.
>Is this a red flag?

yes, they were in over their head and did not do the needed research. the dog is fine.
I asked, apparently they have chihuahuas already and can't handle another dog.

Sup /an/ons. I have a question regarding this cute little girl I found on the street the other day. I cannot tell if this nose patch is ringworm or not. Could anyone help me here? I love her and want her to get the treatment she needs if at all. Thank you!

This girl who works at the humane society said I should only take her to the vet if I see something wrong with her in a week
Well she's dumb and wrong. You'll want to screen for gut parasites and (depending on her approximate age) FeLV/FIV, as well as start her on her innoculations.

Give her a good comb, too, that belly fur looks like it might start matting soon. Nose patch looks like it's just part of her coloration though. so dont worry about that.

Damn. You see that moving down all the way.

It makes sense that ratites are birds with dicks. After all they don't need to reduce their overall weight for something silly like flying...

Which reminds me: Do Penguins have dicks?

They own the place and get pissed if they don't get their way, and often employ violence. It's the same way humans are, if you can imagine the difference between an abusive boyfriend and a sweet girlfriend.

are ducks nice to each other?
Sometimes, It depends on how you introduce them to eachother. My neighbor brought 2 ducklings into her flock way too early and they're all pricks to them. If you do it right though they'll be best buds in no time.
