its a frog eat frog world
not that anon, but do pac-man frogs require a lot of space? i love frogs a LOT and am willing to put in months of research before getting one, but i want one i can take care of with my lack of space. so preferably a frog that doesn’t require a big ass enclosure.

No, their color doesn't change at all. There are a few different species there, and the species that do have some variability in their color only change a little while they grow up. Instead of adapting to their surroundings they search out a place that fits closely to the color they have.

Also yes, they live in the tropics and yes they don't get older than a year or so.

I'm in a sad mood today, so let's share terrible pet owner stories.

I'll start: my gf had a cat that she had to leave at her mother's because we temporarily moved to an apartment for 2 years that doesn't allow any pets. Her mother is a dumb obese old hag that literally once forced my gf to eat chips when she had severe liver damage, because the mother thought it was "healthy". And, as I had expected, it only took about a year for the cat to develop a throat tumor, pic related.

God I fucking hate animal abusers like this. Why do people like this have to exist? On top of it all, the cat now also has chlamydia so he has to suffer two awful illnesses and only recently turned 5 years old.

Imagine being this ironically dumb. People like this actually exist in the world. Not even going to give some moralistic complaint, or even an argument, because this guy won't even bother listening. That far up his own ass. Fuck it's not even empathy, he's just literally too stupid to comprehend between good vs. bad. I'd place bets on him being legit <70iq. You guys know the horror stories about people obviously too retarded for pets still being allowed to buy pets anyways? This is a real, live example. Don't be this guy.

Thanks. Bucephalandra behave a lot like corals as in their penoplastic adaptation is very drastic. While being slow growers, proper lighting in a good spectrum, fertilization and co2 can change their leaf colouration, leaf shape and size dramatically.

Bucephalandra usually root first and then they begin building new leaves. can take up to 2+ months with some finicky ones. After that they tend to flower so just wait how the plant develops. Got about 30 different bucephalandra species. Very addicting plant.
Yeah no, that isn't going to work.
>penoplastic adaptation
? Google gives no information about that...

I've heard some people refer to them like corals before. I've seen a lot of pics where they are top-down so you can see the leaf structure. Good to know that the roots will grow first, so mine should start producing leaves soon. I've had them since early January so they are still new to me. I am expecting some nice growth very soon though.
I meant penoplasty adaptation, look it up on google images

What bugs make for good pets? Do you have a pet bug? I'm mostly interested in something that is easy to find and could be cared for with minimal maintenance.
In particular, I am curious about a pet stink bug. These things used to annoy the hell out of me. I mean, they're useless and fly into your head and shit but I just can't bring myself to kill them. I guess they weren't even around until the late 90's in the US. I didn't really notice them until I was a young teen, but I guess a lot of Americans are going to grow up with them as a common friend. Can I put one in a little plastic house with some grass and have it live comfortably?

Seagulls are fucked.

I was swimming in the ocean before and I was trying to make friends with one of the seagulls. All I had to do to get it close to me was throw little bits of shell near it. It clearly thought I was giving it food. Are seagulls doomed to a life of not being able to support themselves?

Fuck seagulls
If they didn't fly or I had really long arms I would slap the shit out of every one I saw
did you make this? fuck me please
As a dedicated shit hawk, I'd rather beg food from people than try to get it out of the ocean. Octopi and I have issues. Those niggers-of-the-sea drowned a good buddy of mine off Ogden Point, Victoria, BC.

Besides, shitting on freshly washed cars is kino.
I love seagulls. One of my favorite birds. The sound of seagulls reminds me of childhood trips to the seaside with my family, and it's fun to watch them swimming on the waves, landing on the shore, and eating spilled french fries. I once saw a seagull picking at a chocolate bar that someone had lost, but the chocolate bar was wrapped, so I unwrapped the chocolate bar for the bird (it trusted me enough not to fly too far away - sat on a lamp post and watched me) and then watched it pick up the chocolate bar and fly away with it. It wasn't until I was about 16 that I learned there are people out there who dislike seagulls. I think lowly of such people; they're unintelligent brutes with no compassion.
Seagulls are cute! CUTE!!!!!

Here in eastern australia, these birds are a problem. They're an invasive species, they attack the native bird population and drive them out of their nests, and they're noisy.

They pretty much dominate in the area I live and I want to contribute getting rid of them. Just some quick notes though: no guns allowed, or even projectile weapons. Americans keep suggesting this to me no matter how many times I tell them it's not an option. I'd also rather not trap because I really don't want to handle live birds. I'm fine with dead ones though.

Is there a good poisoning method? I've tried baking soda and uncooked rice, but unsure of the results because they always fly away. Do any of you have a good recipe birds eat that's lethal for them?

Okay guys, I live in a small house with my gf. We want to get a pooch but I’m not sure what breed to get.

>I work until midday so they’ll only be left 3-5 hours
>Not overly energetic
I grew up with 2 Springer spaniels and when they were young 3 runs a day wouldn’t make them tired. But I definitely don’t want a couch potato that can barely walk.
>Preferably easy to train
Not a must as long as I can at least teach good behaviours from a young age

We’re not opposed to rescues either.
Any suggestions?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Get a rescue greyhound. Happy with one short run a and another walk a day, they’ll sleep on the sofa all day after that.
OP, you should totally get (insert my own dog's breed) they are the best!


If you know the Springer spaniel breed get another.
A dog is creature of routine and only requires as much exercise as you give it.

If you give them 3 walks a day they’re going to expect 3 walks.
OP it depends if you live in the city or the country.

People who get energetic hunting dogs then take them for 2 leisurely strolls around a city park need shot.

>jelly fish
>not called sea mushroom
What other creatures are misnamed in this wonderful world of ours?
