This is the site in Montana. There are a lot of hadrosaur remains, maybe some tyrannosaur remains, to excavate.

Do you get to see how they clean up the fossil/separate it from the rocks? I watched that from an old Nat Geo documentary and the process just seems super tedious.

my new flagfish is significantly more handsome than the other one, I notice the females pal around with him more often now. Now I feel bad for adding him because the old one who's bigger but also a little tarded will become a fincel.

>come on man i read on some articles
not enough or your reading comprehension is terrible. Most articles will say 'its possible' or 'they can BUT' while warning you that they can and WILL eat shrimp and need to be watched

imo, a docile betta will still go after any newborn shrimplets and thats the thing that will give it a taste for the adults
>>
>>3873274
>How long would it take to cycle using water from my established tank?

about 4-6 weeks. What you SHOULD do is put a second sponge in the newly cycled tank and transfer that over to the shrimp tank in a month or so

fuck i love fantails

Quick question, when spiders eat, do they ingest food through their fangs, I know the fangs are used to inject venom and digestive enzymes, but are the fangs also used to consume or is there a separate mouth?
>>
>>3873531
>are the fangs also used to consume
no
>is there a separate mouth?
yes
>>
>>3873531
They have a mouth and a sucking stomach to invest liquids.

The fangs are on appendages called chelicerae which can vary by arachnid. Spiders are the only ones who's chelicerae are fangs

A neighbors dog attacked my kittens. Two of the four are dead. One is fine. Has puncture marks on it, they didn’t penetrate all the way through. I don’t have money to take it to a vet. So I need to decide if I can nurse it back to health, how, and if not possible, how to put it down humanely. Please help.

I hope you're getting that dog put down, or putting it down yourself.

I'd suggest breaking it's legs with a bat and leaving it to slowly die somewhere.

What does that have to do with OP letting his kittens outside unsupervised? Also if you don't have the money to pay for vet care for your animal, don't get an animal, simple as shit. Anyway...

So I'm chilling on my back porch, where my former pet spider horsey was murdered by an orb spider, RIP, when I hear this yelping like an injured animal. Idgaf, continue to watch TV, then my kid goes running outside like a nigger was stealing his bike, but we live waaay out in the country and 0 diversity and barely 0 neighbors, so now I'm intrigued, I follow. First thing I see is a tiny pupper hiding under my birdbath to avoid the rain. Bring her in wrap her in a towel, dry her off, whitepeoplestuff.exe, been wanting a dog, but want a Doberman. Not sure /an/ons, my kid wants to keep her and she is super sweet, she has already pottied outside twice, I'm torn, I have 8 acres so yard is no issue. idk, what do (you) think, keep her? She still has coffee breath and I would say she is 6-8 weeks old, very sharp puppy teeth, still pup clumsy, she already seems attached to us both and stays at our feet. She is large for a pup, I'm guessing lab of some kind, also she is very attentive to her surroundings and likes to sniff and point...

You sound like a faggot but you look like you will take good care of the dog

I want to start a chicken farm and I live in an urban shithole filled with cats. I'm going to start capturing them and dropping them at the spca to get gassed because I don't have the heart to do it myself.

Thats why I like the dog

It just takes care of what I have fenced in, and any cats that get mauled made that decision themselves. Cats see us as friends/food sources and are comfortable with us and our stuff, but all cats know a dog is a competing predator with its own territory. There's a chance your dog might befriend a few cats, but it's rare, and that kind of cat will probably leave the chickens alone anyways

Wouldn’t the agrarian, slave-based economy of the antebellum South have been better for the environment? Is that why they wanted it gone?

Do you understand... literally anything about any of the topics you're told to cry about constantly?
>>
No. Mass cotton farming is an environmentally harmful industry, regardless of how the labor is sourced. Cotton requires twice as much water as Hemp and produces half of the usable fiber per acre. The antebellum south wasn't some subsistence farming utopia, it was just a big cash-crop money grab built on human suffering.
