Not the heckin tiger kitten

Anyone know of any reptiles that can make a profitable breeding project? Thinking about hognose snakes as they have decent clutches, have unique and very cool looking morphs (that can also sell for a lot), and they’re a snake I personally like a lot.

Seems very unprofitable man. 2 eggs every 1-2 months and they only sell for $20-$50? Plus even if profit isn’t the aim for me personally it doesn’t seem like a fun project. Super small geckos you never see that don’t even have any insane colors or patterns


I’d need to have hundreds to make the same profit a group of 2 hognoses would bring me in a single clutch in the same time frame

Probably not the best time to invest in 'non essential' businesses right now. You are better off running an essential business and saving up money from that until the economy stabilizes and more people have jobs/disposable income. Anyway I hope you fail, I hate the majority of pet breeders.

That’s cool. So like we’re you molested at 5 years old or did you just never have any friends or girlfriends growing up? I don’t mean to sound like a dick, I’m just curious as to what can lead to someone being so bitter and trying to artistically shit on another persons hobby when it literally doesn’t affect you in anyway, that’s all :)

Pretty much this. An Orca pod is roughly equivalent to a hunter-gatherer tribe.
Though I don't see how their society could develop in the same way that ours did with the development of agriculture and metallurgy. Their diet is too limited and they lack the ability to make meaningful changes to their environment.

Yes, more difficult than keeping a cat or dog alive and with many more rules/laws involved.

I suppose that's the appeal of a dog or cat then. And neither of them scream 24/7 so that's another plus.

Agree,owners or people that references dogs/pets as children need to be culled. Its a dog and thats it

Is being a complete brainlet the secret to long life?

>turritopsis dohrnii, practically immortal
>lobsters, not the smartest, yet die mostly of natural causes
>turtles, they’ve been shown to be able to survive without brain and live for like 120 years sometimes
>greenland sharks, not to be anthropocentric but don’t think they’re that smart but most of them alive today were born during the french revolution
>this gamer ally, was in Hitler’s collection at one point and lived to be about 80

Yes I am aware I am missing out tonnes of smart animals that live long like Bowhead whales and Elephants, but I want to entertain the idea that brainletism is the solution to long life so bear with me.

Birds have scales have four hollow points in their skull. Mammals have hair and nipples.
>>
>>3369993
In terms of cladistics, which reflects evolutionary history, mammals are the only living members of the Synapsida; this clade, together with Sauropsida (reptiles and birds) together constitute the larger Amniota clade.

Good news for op then
Also crocodilians have been proven to be intelligent get with the times

>>3369508
Alligators use tools and parrots are smart as shit. Hell humans sometimes live past 100, and frequently live past 70. Intelligence has no correlation to an animal's lifespan.

Birds are a group of feathered theropod dinosaurs, and constitute the only living dinosaurs. Likewise, birds are considered reptiles in the modern cladistic sense of the term, and their closest living relatives are the crocodilians.

No my brother was keeping her because my house is getting renovated after nearly burning down. My sister-in-law let her outside to use it and some feral street goon appeared out of no where and mauled her. I'll admit she did get feisty around dogs she doesn't know but this seemed to be something of a freak accident because she had been let outside countless times before this is occurred, so shit happens I guess.

You were a good dog, an awesome mother, and the most amazing friend a man could ever ask for. Gone but you will never be forgotten.

My Zebra Spider (Salticus Scenicus, pick related), behaves really strange since yesterday. I found it sitting completely still and as i gently blew on it, just to check, it fell down it's rock, unmoving.
I thought it died and was bummed, but later the day I was checking again and it started twitching when I blew on it again.
The twitching is slow and gets faster, when I've used a bright light to see better. It stopped when I switched the lamp off.
What is happening to the little fella? It recently ate and I've seen it drink a day before it started this behavior.

Sounds like DKS which is just an umbrella term for issues that result in loss of motor control and likely death. It’s primarily due to exposure to chemicals, usually cleaning agents which they’re especially sensitive to. Did you use any sort of spray recently around the cage? Also, it’s possible that the prey item had some residual chemicals. Crickets and roaches can aggregate toxic chemicals without issue but pass this on to spiders. This is why it’s important to be careful what you feed them. If it can drink enough water it may be able to pass some of the chemicals. It’s really hard to identify problems with these little guys. I hope it recovers anon

>>3369850
maybe it’s afraid of spiders and just realized that it’s a spider itself

I had the feeling that animals this size would react badly to chemicals and avoided any form of it around the terrarium.
But I threw in a bug I found pic related.
Maybe it got contaminated before I catched it. It surely got killed by the spider, but doesn't look all "hollow" like it's other victims. Seems like I poisoned it on accident.
I'll try keeping the glass moist so it can drink plenty to hopefully pass it.
Thanks Anon, I hope my jumpy boi recorvers too.
>>
>>3369887
seen any suspicious wasps lately?
>>
>>3369890
I don't think a wasp would be able to get into the terrarium. The top is sealed by a pretty tight metal mesh. Small enough so the spider won't wiggle through (~1mm) but I like the idea. Might have been the case with a bigger spider.
