Hey, /an/ my sister saw this in her room today. I can't tell and don't want to contact a exterminator just yet about if these are bed bugs or not due to some shady things I've heard.

Anyway is this a bed bug? I can't really tell

Any tips on catching a sheep? I phrased this wrong I think, there's a sheep nearby with what looks like an organ hanging out of the stomach meat but it keeps running into a pine forest and I can't catch it. Tried some farms but they don't want to know.

If it is an egg sack, just let them be. Most of the babies will unfortunately die, and be lucky that you got to have this experience. They will all try to gtfo to lessen competition, so many will probably move out (maybe open up some windows). Perhaps you can also move them into a jar or something so you can check them out and move them out when the time comes. Or I suppose you can move the sac out to a sheltered place outside.

Well, with the baby, you can actually do something about it. Just call CPS or whatever you have in your area and report the abuse/neglect. They'll actually investigate and there's a fair chance the kid will be taken away if it's really that bad.

I'm sure her family will help her care for it so it won't get that bad. I'm just mad because she keeps getting away with all the terrible things she does. She busted all the windows out the car her mother gave her in a fit of rage, and nothing came of it. She's killed/sold off soooo many animals. When the lizard died after me and my mother tried to do last minute emergency care, her mom just said "oh it's just a lizard". It took almost a full year for the poor thing to finally die with us asking her to give it up to us for almost the same amount of time.

Sorry for the rant. Here's a pic of my Bub for your entertainment.

They drink liquids, usually nectar and tree sap. But I'm sure they suck up water when needed as well.

Alright, so that regal moth the OP posted there is just gonna reproduce and die... They literally do not have moths in their adult forms. Just warning ya in advance. Saturniids (Silk and Regal moths) are a group of moths that build up their reserves as larvae and then just fuck as adults and restart the cycle. The larvae are fairly straight-forward to raise and it would be pretty cool if you get it to reproduce, their populations are threatened in the Northeastern US (local populations being extinct in some states due to invasive parasitoids, pesticides and habitat destruction)

Second one looks like a... Noctuid of some kind?

Third looks like an Eacles imperialis, very good moths. Also Saturniids, subfamily Ceratocampinae (close relative of Regal moths, AKA the species in Citheronia)

Fourth moth is also a Saturniid. Subfamily Saturniinae. Seems to be a Antheraea polyphemus? Those are the kinds of silkmoths who have larvae who make silken cocoons. Unlike Regal moths who just go "Fuck it, I'm making a hole underground and spending the winter there", despite also being part of the silkmoth family (They do use silk, but they don't use as much since they're just using it to keep the pupation chamber stable).

That moth from Louisiana looks like a lined-sphinx of some kind. Basically they're bootleg hummingbirds and they're crazy little shits, zipping and zooping in your garden sucking your flowers and shit with their big-ass proboscis.

The one with the eyespots is a male Automeris io, also a Saturniid. Subfamily Hemileucinae, known for their larvae's highly venemous spines, social behaviour as larvae and being very beautiful throughout all their lifestages. The adult's defense mechanism is to try and spook you with those eyespots if their leaf camouflage doesn't work. Or y'know, fly away.

All the species shown (except the sphinxes, the larvae are usually pretty straightforward, but fuck keeping the adults. ugh.) are extremely easy to raise throughout the lifestages.
>>
Alright so my last comment is too huge to edit so lemme say it here. Correction, Saturniids do not *functioning* mouths as adults, the proboscis are so tiny and useless and their digestive tract is practically non-existent in their adult form. The body almost being exclusively for reproduction. So the females just sit in a tree and puff out pheromones and wait for a male to just home in and fuck her.

I also meant to say that SOME local populations in the Northeastern US are extinct. Like some random places in Massachusetts.

And yes, that last one *does* have a functioning mouth (or at least it probably does), unlike literally half of the other ones shown. Except for that sphinx from Louisiana and that noctuid in the second post, those feed fine as adults.
>>
Well apparently there's subtle differences between A. io and A. louisiana. What the fuck Automeris. What the fuck. There's already like 200 species of you eye-spotted weirdos and like half of you look so damn similar to each other it hurts.

And yeah that lined-sphinx weirdo looks like E. vitis, good job.
>>
Yes you can raise Luna moths, most Saturniids are "easy" as I've mentioned previously. I'd especially recommend it if they're native to your area. But ease of rearing is rather subjective depending on your raising area's temperature and humidity, what food plant you're using, your experience and if the brood you're keeping is going strong or is becoming a disheartening failure for some unknown reason that'll haunt you for the next 3 months. It happens... :/

I am new to 4chan, have heard good things. I would like to spread some awareness about New Zealands dirty secret for anyone thinking of visiting or for anyone interested please watch this and join the operation ban1080 facebook group for MUCH more evidence and data. We need to get the word out to the world as our govt will not listen to the people of this beautiful country, any help is hugely appreciated.

No. Gunshots disturb way less wildlife than many other human activities (including car noises). Animals deal with sudden noises, it's constant noises they can't stand.
But let's admit NZ animals are faggots that are deeply disturbed by each gunshot or thunderstrike.
The UK allow silencers for hunting. Don't tell me you kiwis are even more retarded than bongs when it comes to firearms ?
Bow (and crosbow) hunting is also a thing.

>>2822856
Sure, there are overpaid retards in sandy countries trading goats with bizarre deformities for racehorse prices but we can ignore them. In the US you can get well bred goats of interesting breeds for around $250, less at livestock auctions. I know of someone who got a fainting goat for like $150. Goats are the easy parts. Land costs a lot more than goats especially where I was stupid enough to be born.
