First of all excuse the shitty image quality.
Found this little fella in a sample taken near a mangrove forest.
We thought it looked like a tardigrade at first but then we counted 6 pairs of legs instead of 4 so now I'm thinking it might be some kind of myriapod?
Any panarthropoda man in that could help me identify it?

What breed? Some have very different dietary needs like fruit/veg/bugs. Others are seed/pellet only.

Too thick to be the jaw bone of a white-tailed deer.

I'd guess elk, maybe, but your specimen only has five teeth and an elk normally has six. Does it have an empty socket behind that last molar? Could also be moose.

Theoretically, you could, provided the bone isn't too old and brittle. It does look old, though. That's some heavy wear and discolouration on it.
>can't grip knife because you'd be driving teeth into your hand if you held it properly
>hand immediately slips and gets sliced open on blade
I never said jawbone knives were practical or sensible. All I said was theoretically possible.
At least blunt mammal molars are more sensible than this.

The guy was nuts and wanted to be eaten by bears.

RIP Jimbo. 24 years old. I can't feel but well up everytime I look to my left on my calendar and see him seemingly loving life.

they are literally big dogs.

Meaning some harmless things dogs normally do because of their size can be potentially fatal with bears.

Raising big predators is a career investment, not a hobby.
A cheetah would be a better pet than a bear

if u must get a bear, get a runt black bear since there havent been too many black bear human attacks

i wish i could get a black bear thst when fully grown would be thr size if a medium dog

I bought some cheap pancetta (cured pork you can eat raw) and the bottom half was basically cured pig skin. It was too rough to chew so I fed it to my dogo. She just swallowed the whole thing! No chewing. It was pretty big. Now I'm worried. What do?

I wouldn’t have thought a strip of pig skin would be too much trouble for the dog in the picture. I suppose it’s possible it will lodge in her throat or cause an intestinal blockage (both of which are emergencies). If you notice any clinical signs of intestinal blockage then you should get her to a vet ASAP, especially since the weekend is coming up (if your vet doesn’t do surgery on weekends then you might end up paying for a vet hospital or emergency vet, which is REALLY expensive). If you’re genuinely worried then you should absolutely consult your vet - even if nothing is wrong in regards to the pork skin, at least your dog will get a check up.

Is that your dog in the picture?

"house cats" feel imprisoned. just sitting on the window ledge doesn't satisfy their need for more freedom. my cats come in and out but they generally stay around our house or next door neighbors who also have cats. sometimes they cross the street but they are cautious about it. where the fuck do you guys live if you have to worry about people shooting your cats?

the main concern i have is owls, but even then whenever my cats hear the owls hooting they want to go outside. i'm sure they've seen the owls and maybe they have some weird interest in them or want to watch them or try and kill one? it's hard to tell.

also it seems like the only cats that really walk more than a few houses away are stray cats who are trying to survive by hunting birds etc. they have to travel more, but if you feed them they'll start hanging around your place more.

all my cats have totally different personalities and they also recognize individual differences in each other and learn to get along. most cat fights are bluffing for territory or food or just caused by one being mischievous and the other not being in the mood.

Are dog parks good for making a dog exercise and letting it socialize with other dogs or will it get mauled to death by some retard's pitbulls?

Are you a retard who can't handle hearing dog parks aren't just puppies and rainbows?

Have you never seen a dog attack before? A 50kg dog picking up and shaking a 3kg dog usually doesn't end well. The lab/american bulldog thing was owned by a retarded woman who did nothing but scream. The toy breed thing was only with a young teen boy. No one else was around and I'm not letting my retard dog join in the fight. The little dog owner posted on facebook the next day asking if anyone could I.D the woman and posted photos of the aftermath.
>waaaah mommy my feelings are hurt
No one else was around yet there was a dog cafe out the front? It sounds to me like you're the one who thinks dog parks are all puppies and rainbows, and someone ruining that image makes you angry. If someone posted pics on Facebook, then post here.

I doubt the dog survived if you're calling those weights and that level or 'everyone else around is irresponsible but me' and don't forget that many stitches, if the damage was that bad, they probably used staples.
Honestly they weren't playing, they probably thought it was a squirrel. I hope you're a woman, cause you sure sound like one.
I support this post. I endorse everything it stands for whole heartedly.

How does everyone exercise their greyhound?

I wish I could see mine running at full speed. He prefers to chase other dogs and they're slow so he mostly toys with them and never needs to run too fast.

I go running with him but he's a bit of a tard off lead and tries to block me from running around/round me up.
you seem upset about the strength of my length
Get him involved in lure coursing
Greyhounds have absolute kino aesthetics, no other doggo breed comes close.

I have this RC car, take it to a field and release doggos on it, they fucking hustle after that thing. It's great.
