I imagine that want to touch is the same as seeing a deep wound and wanting to touch your own bones, probably not worth the morbid beauty.

neighbor died and i inherited this snake. still dont know what type it is. can anyone help?

bump. possibly a blood python?

Looks to be a Malayan blood python, and a dehydrated one at that. While not the most difficult snake to keep they are a bit tricky for first time snake keepers. I'd suggest googling care sheets and popping over to the /herp/ thread for tips.
>>
>>2575245
Why does it look dehydrated? Bad sheds are common and usually not caused by dehydration. Low humidity is more like it.

You are going to an abandoned island with reasonable soil quality and a little hut with a set of basic tools to be able to work the fields.
You are allowed to take 5 animals and 10 different bags of seeds with you. The island is in a temperate climate zone with a forest in the middle of it. You have to survive for 5 years, what do you go for?

1 medium sized dog, 1 rooster and 1 hen, 1 male and 1 female goat, tomatoes. potatoes, squash, 2 kale bags, legumes, corn, cabbage, zucchini, apricot

As for the breeds, the dog would have to be a dual purpose, intelligent breed that can also guard and deal well in the heat but also has low prey drive so it doesn't kill my chickens. Maybe something like a Koolie that has always had a dual purpose and is a very healthy, active and long lived breed that is acclimated to hot temperatures. The chickens I would want to be a medium sized broody bird that is a good egg layer. The female I would definitely want an orpington, to ensure that she will sit on her eggs. The male I may have something different, something a bit bigger and meatier or maybe of a breed that lays more eggs. Possibly a Rhode Island red, Black Star or Plymouth Rock rooster. I'd probably get Kiko goats as they grow fast, mothers are very protective of their kids and need next to no assistance, males are aggressive breeders, and even as goats are known to eat everything. Milk is also good for use. The babies can be slaughtered at around 8 months of age. I may have the male be a boer to lessen the slaughter age by about 2 months, but then I am giving up the basically assured breeding for every heat.

As for seeds, I'd have Floriani Red Flint corn as it can be dried and stored and yields a lot. heirloom russian tomatoes since they are large, have a lot of seeds to replant and mature quickly. Yukon gold will work for potatoes but nearly any variety of potato will work. Spaghetti squash because I fucking love spaghetti squash and it's very easy to keep for winter. Apricot I am assuming will mature in 2 years, giving me a couple years to actually benefit from it. If I was planning to be there longer I would invest in a nut tree of some sort instead of a second kale bag and maybe a different fruit tree such as a peach tree.

can't you get it threated? I've had two separate lime cases and antibiotics does the job pretty well. Surely, my joints will never be the same but it is treatable.

2 tick bites and several dozen removed before bite on average every year. There're ticks everywhere in Europe.

They have been awful in my area due to deer overpopulation and a couple warm winters in a row. However this winter is colder than Ronald Reagans heart and should kill many deer and ticks off. Just saw a deer popsicle floating down the river today.

You're one of two parrot type of person or you're not.
1 is smaller parrots. Budgies, cockatiels, conures, quakers, parrolets, etc. 2 is basically every other one.

I love both and worked with both but if you don't like noise and want a life then you probably won't be the second type.

I wondered this too, and I came to the conclusion that yes, they would know the subtle differences that you and I can't even begin to imagine. However, that doesn't mean that they will appreciate it or even think that those are tastes worth experiencing.

>>2576229
Is probably right. Stuff like liver is on the top tier of things dogs will enjoy.
>>
>>2576242
I doubt their sense of taste goes beyond ours, or at least that they pay as much attention to it. Dogs don't savor, they swallow as fast as they can.
I dog can probably tell shitty meat from tasty meat, but he'll be happy either way because meat is meat.

tons of animals have a favorite food man, stuff far more basic than dogs

>>2576199
dogs can tell the difference better than you can, they have a better sense of smell

people that think they can't tell low quality food because they're animals are just cheap fucks
