HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR LARGE (boa) CONSTRICTOR: A THREAD. by Oliver Fenningbadge - Thu, 03 Mar 2016 18:29:00 EST ID:oEnIWN/0 No.32584 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hey guys so I've had some awesome experiences raising this snake. She is really cool so I'm trying to make a really in depth post about how great they are and how you should have one.


Yes. Constrictors are generally pretty chill people if they're raised in captivity and not fed in the same cage they're in. They are large, but that solves many problems about finding the snake. When they're 10 feet long you won't say "where's my snake" but rather "I found my snake" followed by the sentence "She was everywhere". They don't see people as food because of some weird long-standing evolutionary hoobajoop about not evolving to see people as prey and the tendencies of predators not to prey on other predators that are high in the trophic pyramid.


What you gotta feed them are rats and/or mice. When they are big you should always videotape the feeding of live rabbits to the snake so as to horrify everyone and make sure people think you're horrible.

The general rule is that if the snake looks like he's about to choke and that you don't think he/she will swallow it, it's good.


Dude just put the snake down anywhere seriously. She'll go to a dark cozy place when it's light out, and will move about when it's dark out. I've left her in a paper bag near my computer for the last 2 days because it's warm here and she's just staying there.

The other day I was thinking about dogs, and how humans invented dogs, and over the course of history bred a multitude of fucked up inbred genetic cul-de-sacs with lots of health issues. Often in the name of looking cute or funny (dachshunds, pugs, etc.). It has gotten so extreme that we have dog shows where stuck up faggots rank dogs based on how perfect they match the genetic defects of their shitty breed. In my opinion this is immoral and should be classed as animal abuse. I think all dog shows should be focused on health. Which dog has the best muscle tone, ease of breathing, athletic performance, etc. The beauty should come from its survivability and genetic strength, not how much it looks like a sausage. I'm kinda drunk so I dunno if I got this point out the way I wanted, but basically I think since Man made Dog we should be responsible for making Dog strong and healthy, not mutant pieces of shit that can't breathe or break their back hopping out of a car.

I've got two indoor/outdoor cats, male and a female both mixed. Lately my backyard has been getting visits from a big neighborhood tabby. He's super friendly and chill and isn't afraid of people or other cats. He's also too well fed, clean, and social to be a stray. My cats however are terrified of him and will growl and act territorial. They've swiped at the visiting tabby and run, but the Tabby isn't interested in fighting at all.

Is there anyway to get my cats to at least tolerate our neighbor? He's really cool.

I guess the next time he's chilling with you outside you could pet him with a little blanket or towel and put it where your two kitties spend most of their time inside. Then they'd get used to his smell? Possibly. Only thing I could think of.

Maybe it'll make them angrier.

Cats can be shits in a similar way to humans, it's part of their charm. Cats will manipulate you and it may be that this guy beats the fuck out of the other locals when no one is looking. It may be that your cats are the horrible ones but you don't know. Cats spend a lot of time doing stuff when you're asleep or at work. Just be careful not to fuck over the cats you've committed to or to drive them away.

What's the deal with Goldfish? by Edward Fendlesone - Wed, 09 Aug 2017 14:02:01 EST ID:7m/mDrzW No.33467 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So it's been a decade or more since I kept pet fish, and lately I've been thinking about getting a goldfish, and in doing so I wanted to get the classic goldfish bowl that every 8 year old kid had next to their bed growing up. Pic related.

But doing research online, there seems to be a lot of passionate, vocal goldfish advocates who would like to see me lynched for even considering putting a goldfish in a bowl. According to these folks, a single goldfish requires a minimum of 30 gallons and that's because my goldfish will grow to be bigger than a hamster and live for 15 years.

Now, if what they're saying is true, fuck it, I won't get a goldfish. But I wanted to make this thread and see if anyone here has some experience with goldfish and can confirm/deny these things. Maybe you can recommend me another small fish I can keep in a bowl that won't live longer than my cat.

If you decide to get a betta, which I have had a few, I would recommend a 10 gallon tank. It sounds like a lot to a beginner but the foot print of the tank is pretty small. Also the smaller amount of water that you have, the harder it is to keep clean. think of it like, less water = higher fish fish waste to water ratio.

with a ten gallon you could also get like 6 neon tetras. In my experience most bettas do well with small tetras if the tetras were introduced to the tank before the betta.

pic is my tank, a 5.5g with a betta and 4 neon tetras

Goldfish are great outdoor fish. They get big and they shit a lot. If you get a plastic pool and a pond pump you can make a bog filter that will cycle the water and take the fish shit out of the water. You can just cut cucumbers into quarters and they will eat them. That and any aquatic plants you have.

Fighting fish are really good small tank fish but you do need a filter or you will have to change the water every day. They shit just as much if not more than gold fish relative to their size and they don't eat pond scum. The fancier ones are susceptible to fin rot in poor quality water, not only does it look shitty but it's painful for the fish. If you want one get a 5 gallon tank with a small filter for the least maintenance.

If you just want a bowl without a filter I recommend cherry shrimp. They are low maintenance and don't require a filter plus they are bright and pretty. You can throw some moss, sand and aquatic plants in there and it will look nice.

I just upgraded from a pool to a stock tank and moved all the shit in for winter. I'm going to get some more plants in the bog filter. There are 5 large calico goldfish in here and a large weather loach. The orange parts of the goldfish pop under the light, I like my fish to pop.

I went to the vet cause my cat came home injured with a broken leg. They said the femur is broken in 2 places and they can't cast it and he'd have to have it amputated, wait to see if it heals, or get metal plates on his femur.

Well I kept him home and he gets around good I had him inside for a week and a half and he climbs the chair, chases toys, runs around, climbs stuff, climbs trees, runs but idk what to do. He stands and walks on it but when he sits on it it bends sideways a little bit and I'm sketched out. I know he wouldn't like surgery and shit but I don't want him to be fucked for life.

I also heard that the plates can cause pain or they can cause pain way later in life and he gets around fine now and I'm scared of surgery going wrong or sething I don't even want to hand my cat over to a facility and shit he has anxiety. They told me that it would be like 3k+ for the surgery (I don't care I made that much in a month alone) but my sales are online and it's all in a PayPal account and I'm waiting to get an id to get the money.

My parents called a place and we live in the middle of nowhere and they're all like 2 hours away and my parents are alcoholics who don't care about anything or have any money and I have no car. Idk what to do. I just want what's best for my cat I don't care about my money and shit I just want him to have a good life. The place my parents called and said the surgery place would only take cash upfront I think that's fucking insane and it sounds like a lie to me. There's no way that the place charges 3-5k cash up front in hand only.

My mom says that they would have to rebreak his leg to do surgery and put it in place with the plates now.

if you leave his femur broken the fracture will heal misaligned. this will mean his hip, knee, ankle, and toe joints will be torqued at the wrong angles, and he will wear out his meniscus and cartilage much faster. the plates may cause stiffness and an "aching in the bones", esp. with barometric changes, but it will not be nearly as degenerative as allowing him to live his life with a crooked bent femur.

Might not be. How many eyes does it have? If the answer is not 6 it's not a brown recluse.

They're a bit out of range so I imagine any in your area will either run indoors or die. Keep squishing them and in a couple of weeks there won't be any more left to come seek shelter in your flat as they'll be frozen. Maybe warn your neighbours and stuff if it's a recluse though.

I used to keep rats, and those little buggers hated having their claws clipped. Most of them didn't need it though, some of them did get long claws. The trick was to put a piece of rough wood in their cage as a ramp, and it would wear their claws down as they scuttled up and down it.

Have you considered carpeting your stairs with sand paper? This would wear the dogs claws down as he walked up and down the stairs.
