There are species of blue lobsters but that lobster op posted is an american lobster with a rare blue mutation.
>>
>>2790505
that's clearly a crawdaunt

>>2790942
I actually meant the other normal ones being orange, the blue one is obviously not a normal colouration. Do american lobsters really do this ?

>>2790942
this blue color morph is a common thing in crayfish and related to water hardness and acidity. it's not a 1:1000000 occurance, in fact you can grow crayfish to become this coloration morph if you want to.
>>
>>2791093
I had a creek by my house as a kid that was full of em and I've seen the blue mutation you're talking about. Its not as shockingly blue as the lobster in OPs pic but still really cool to look at in real life

Repot it a bunch of times, check roots and see if it still has white healthy roots. Root health is by far the most important thing for any plant. I suggest doing some googling for root health and solutions for root rot if any.

Thoughts on Wag?

I used the free walk and it seemed pretty neat. $20 a walk is kinda steep and I dunno that I trust some rando with a key to my house but I guess it’s no less safe than any other random dog walker.

Not really. I have people in my street who let their dogs shit all over the sidewalk and do not clean it up. They're disgusting, and they know they're wrong, they just don't care. They make me so mad because this is not the fault of some shitty dog, but clearly the fault of shitty retarded owners.
And dogs can be controlled to stay obedient when off the leash, any owner should be able to do that.
>>
>>2789342
Most people aren't capable of training a dog to such a level of obediencd that they've complete off leash control - that's abundantly clear. I'd also wager your dogs aren't as well trained as you probably think they are. You seem like exactly the kind of person which has brought me to seriously consider actively discouraging pet ownership. People who think they can do no wrong and that it's someone else who is the problem.

>I know my dogs running rampant in the scrub disturbing god knows what in peak nesting season but at least I pick up his poop lol xD
>I know he's running up to every other dog in the area but he's friendly he just wants to play lol

The vast majority of people don't have the time, energy or inclination to keep even the most basic of pets let alone a dog. That's the harsh truth nobody wants to hear because they want their cute whatever the fuck to gawp at and post on facebook.

I have schizophrenia. The beings I have talked to are from a diverse range of backgrounds – some identify with hell and the devil. Some with heaven and God. Some seem as if they might have come from the forest or from nature, while some seem to be from some kind of city.

Since these experiences started I have had telepathic communications with birds, and insects flying around me in time with my thoughts and doing insane things like making orb webs inside right beside my toilet. I even once had a being show me that the chirping of crickets at night is a highly conscious communication between them, like human talking or human music, not just a dull repetitive click click noise.

Which has led me to wonder about the culture of social insects such as ants and wasps... the tapping of their feelers that they do when they run into each other is no doubt a complex language. Do they have religion? Education?

I think probably they do.

My last thread died, but I think I can get input into this.

What other clades should I add or even remove from the tree? I know there's a lot of stuff missinng, but the point is to be simple and to know relationships between common animal groups, trying to not lose a lot of detail.

I'll be merging this one with the sauropsida one to do the amniota tree, and then do one for amphibians which should be easy and simple. Down the road maybe a more detailed primate one should be good too.

I've been approached to take part in a cull of badgers in my county in the UK.

Could there be animals living in that lake they discovered on mars?
>>
>>2791056
Bacteria, perhaps.
I am more interested in archeology and what shit they may find once we can properly dig there.
>>
>>2791072
Im in doubt theres any evidence of a civilization there, im looking forward more towards Xeno-paleontology discoveries , i think its quite likely they'll find stuff frozen in Mar's ice caps.
>>
By strict definition, they wouldn't be animals.
They would also likely be single celled.
Lightning and thermal vents have been found on mars, in addition to the mineral deposits that can act as catalysts, may enable the creation of complex organic molecules, like RNA.
A possible source of energy for such life could be oxidising iron below the surface, similar to earth bacteria life like Thiobacillus ferrooxidans

better than an hero i guess
