They'd probably kill the skunk
Also pet skunks are required to have their spray sacks removed, so you'd face another charge

Hey /an/ yesterday I discovered this spider on my guava tree, what kind of spider it is? Should I be worried?
I'm from the North of Chile

>>2487043
Can't tell you the exact species but it's a crab spider, family Thomisidae.

Looks like it could belong to the genus Misumena, the flower crab spiders.


>Should I be worried?
No. Completely harmless little critters. They sit in place well camouflaged and snag stuff that comes to close with their 4 front legs (which you can see it has in position to grab prey). They eat mostly flying insects. Some can change their color to match their surroundings and blend in better.

>Should I be worried?

Yes, but only because you're stuck living in Chile.

You can actually move these guys to any flowers you might have in your garden and check back a few days later to see if they've changed color but they're literally only good at sitting still and so fucking fragile and clumsy that I wouldn't risk it since you might hurt or kill her.

Discuss anything aquarium related here, including inhabitants, decor and issues.
Google is your friend.
Feel free to ask questions but know that there are a lot of resources out there that could answer your question a lot faster and accurately than /an/.
Make sure to include these things in your post before asking because we can't help you if we don't have the full picture:

-tank size (include dimensions, not just volume)
-parameters (ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, pH, GH, KH)
-any and all inhabitants + how long you've had them

Handsome girl. I like her orange collar--where'd you get it?

I'd say people are pretty set in their prices, as far as I know it's bad etiquette to try and haggle on the price.

That said, a big thing to look for is health testing of the parents, especially in a breed like that which is prone to several health problems. Look up what health tests are standard for this breed, and ask your breeder if they've tested the parents. They should be more than willing to share that info and the results of said tests. If they don't health test their dogs, I'd move on and find another breeder.

Alright, I need some advice here.
Earlier this morning i picked up a kitten.
But now I feel really nauseous.
I had this same feeling when I got a dog a while back, and I send the dog back after about a week. Luckily we had some kind of trail period, my floor was too slippery and the dog was old, so he was to scared to stand up.

I've had this kitten for less than a day, and again I'm feeling the nausea.

I know it's not allergies because I had cats all my life.

Anyone know what the problem is, and how do I fix it? I don't wanna get rid of the kitten, he is too adorable. pic related

Sounds like you are just an annoying fag who tries to pet dogs weirdly. I've never had a dog anywhere close to being about to "bite my face off" when I was touching them, even completely unsocialized strays.

>>2485671
Chows are pretty shit dogs. They're like the pits of Asia. They've been bred to be aggressive towards pretty much everything. If you're not an experienced owner who really knows how to socialize dogs, you probably shouldn't get one.

Do animals suffer from dementia?
Like a dog gets so old he forgets his owner and stuff?

that's fine, but there's no question why he's doing it.

you see it as he's being more demanding and he should know to be polite.

he sees it as he barks and he gets treats so if he wants treats he should bark.

one of you is very confused and it's not him.

He's doing it because you and your mom are retarded. He learned he can do anything he wants and no longer has to listen to you. It has nothing to do with age, you gigantic idiot.

Older dogs can become food fixated, they get completely focused on it and stop caring about anything else. Just something that happens I guess.

Soon I am moving in with my partner, however they own three cats. One is always an outdoor cat and the second one has chlamydia and has to live inside the house during winter to avoid dying from the weather. Does anyone know if it's possible to get chlamydia or other diseases from such pets? Because some of my relatives that are ex-cat owners claim it to be possible with a low chance.

Fuck man don't live with someone who lets a chlamydia cat around their other animals. That's disgusting.
If it's one of those weird people that let their pets lick their face them then they'll probably get pink eye from it or some shit.

First of all, the cat has never spread to any dogs or cats in the house. It is entirely a chronic and secluded disease, that the cat haslived with for eight years now. Second, I personally believe that letting your pets lick your face is disgusting.

And also fuck you, man, go fucking get raped by a bull or something.
