I noticed my mother's Cockatiel seems to have red staining around his nostrils. Possibly a bit in the nostrils as well. It looks kind of like when a dog or cat gets goopy eyes. I'm assuming it is dried blood. Have any of you dealt with anything similar?

Hey guys, a raccoon just killed my little sisters puppy poodle. I've never heard of them being so aggressive before. Sure, I know they'll fight dogs and cats for the pet food sometimes, but this was with a light on in the back yard of a suburban neighborhood with people around, and this fucking thing just ran out and murdered the little dog and ran away. Do you think it was rabid? Have you guys had any experience with raccoons like that before?

“The mortality rate of the babirusa, a type of wild pig, is often raised in a curious way: some individuals die of having their brain pierced by their own tusks. (…) The bottom ones emerge from the lower jaw and point upward; the upper canines also grow upward, crossing the muzzle and then curving to the rear. They grow as long as thirty centimeters. In certain aged males, the tips of the tusks sometimes end by meeting the skull, which they gradually pierce until they bring about the animal’s death. (…) They fight with the lower tusks, which can inflict serious wounds. The upper tusks are inoffensive; their function is mainly to protect the eyes from the tusks of adversaries. In their natural environment, these animals have evolved without predators. Their only serious wounds being those they inflict on one another, two of their tusks have lost their aggressive function and acquired a protective one. (…) Not all the males die of the skull being pierced by their own tusks. In most of them, the tusks grow away from the skull, and their twisting form suffices to avoid any wound. Besides, the tusks do not reach a length great enough to threaten the animal’s physical integrity until late in his life. By then he has managed to reproduce several times, and in so doing to pass along his characteristics to his descendants. The few cases of babirusas killed by their own tusks cannot diminish the advantage of having ever more formidable ones that can win over a female heart.” Jean-Baptiste Panafieu, “Evolution,” translated from the French by Linda Asher.

Hey yu guise, i'm having a tiny bit of a problem here, i've planted an Carolina reaper plant and a Ancho 101 plant a few months ago, now i'm almost certain that THIS was the Reaper, but there could be a possibility i've mixed them up, Would you guys think this is the Reaper or the Ancho plant? i've started to get suspicious when the fruit grew in this weird shape, the texture of the fruit has a few pointy bumps aswell.

Hey /an/ I posted here about five weeks ago about my two kittens because one of them refused to use the litterbox. With your guys's help I figured out that it was a territorial issue and I bought another litterbox and positioned it close to where it was comfortable. The problematic kitten ended up using it. Now they're 12 weeks old and I know they're going to be approaching the point in which they want to go outside. Although my apartment is quite big and has plenty of ledges to jump, I live next to a busy road without a stop side and I'm afraid that if I ever let them out they'll be at an extraordinary risk of getting run over. That all being said, I want to learn how to walk my kittens. How would I go about doing this? How are they trained to walk in a harness? Lastly, how long of a training regiment should they partake before they finally go outside. Lastly but most importantly, I am a new cat owner so I was not aware that kitten personality's change constantly. One of my kittens is really mellow while the other one is hyper, shy, and social (I have no idea how to explain this). The second one, while I don't mind him getting into places, don't want him on a coffee table but I'm not sure how to positively train him to avoid the table. Thanks for the help.

What pet give back more "love"? My vote is for birds, even though my cockatiel probably saw me as a food source, since she always pecked my beard.

My dog vomited a lot two days ago. After it stopped, I was hoping that the dog would recover, but it's still not willing to eat in large portions, even with treats. The menstruational period has also lasted for a month now. What could be wrong?

Intelligence in birds vs Bravery.

3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Is there any correlation between intelligence in birds and bravery? Logically a smarter bird will realise a human offering them food isn't a threat and will therefore be braver. I've recently moved to a house on a lake and have been feeding the birds every day as I walk around. Swans are the bravest birds, they will actually take bread out my hand and don't seem scared of me at all. Coots are the second bravest they will come within a few feet of me, even coming out of the water to get fed. They are still a little scared and will hiss sometimes. They get bonus intelligence points for being able to recognise the sound of a rustling bag. Ducks seem pretty stupid, they will usually avoid you and swim away. Grebes seem dumb as shit. They wont come anywhere near the bank and will swim away if you get within 30m of them. There are a few outliners, Crows are supposed to be smart but they will fly away when you get near them, as will pigeons.

So /an/, is there any possible dangers to having a fish tank topped off in water? I have this inherited fish tank that just recently seperated at the bottom seams and all the water leaked out of it. Before I got it, I noticed that the salt line at the top of it was three inches below the very top of the tank. Its 185 gallons or so, around that area I don't remember the exact number. Anyway, question is, do you think a fish tank could actually come apart like this because of the water? The stand it was resting on was custom-made, and it didn't absolutely perfectly adhere to the dimensions of the bottom of the tank in a perfect 1:1 snug fitting ratio. I'm debating whether this is something that can be repaired and I should just try again, but I don't fully understand what happened. Fish tank was empty, just water was in it. No obvious cracks could be seen, besides the fact that I saw water welling up at the bottom, continuing to do so as I wiped it and so I think the temperature combined with its weight may have been too much for it and shit hit the fan like this. Help me in any way you can, it's almost a thousand dollars worth.
