A rainforest is far more ambiguous. Like the whole coast of the Pacific Northwest is a temperate rainforest. A jungle is specifically tropical with a connotation of being particularly overgrown - basically the tropical rainforest equivalent of "wilderness".

What's the rarest animal you've ever seen?

Can be either rare to your area in general or just rare in the sense that not many even exist to begin with.

Mine is a flying squirrel. They only come out at night and are naturally hard to see just by default, but last year one came to my suet feeder a few times and I was lucky to see it in the porch light.

Not my pic but he looked pretty much just like this with the thick tail and big eyes.

Only exist in 4 islands in the Balkans, came across a big dead on during a hike, it was about 24 inches long.
It was hefty too, pretty thick and heavy, it was during late spring and the bushes were full of partridge chicks scurrying around so plenty of prey around for them.

It's pretty much the same story with sasquatch. You hear about logging companies fighting guerilla tactics against them because if they were revealed to the public millions of square miles of forest would become protected and the loggers would go out of business.

just got a 4 weeks old kitten. how the fuck do i care for her?
12 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>>
when I was 9 years old there was a department store that had a box of kittens out front which they had found in their basement and were free to take
I wanted one and my mom said as long as I take care of it I can have it, she was fully expecting me to fail so it was a win win where she gets to look like the good guy but also we wouldn't really have a cat for long

well I didn't fail, I got cat milk formula and fed the kitten from a dropper every couple hours until it was able to start on solid food and over the next many weeks it grew up healthy and we bonded
then my mom went back on her word and made me get rid of the cat anyway. worse yet she had someone from her job come to get it and made me be the one to physically hand it over

it was decades ago, and it still hurts

>also people adopt way younger kittens and just feed them from bottles or something.
A fraction of people does something really fucking stupid and irresponsible, that doesn't make it ok.

Please hand the kitten in to the nearest vet and never adopt any pet ever again.

What an evil shrew

>>4770782
It's crucial that she socializes as soon as possible or she'll end up with serious behavioral issues. Cats are social, they need to be with other cats. Get an adult female cat to serve as her surrogate mother.
>>
>>4770773
If you absolutely will not take her back (temporarily), you need to get up to speed on how to properly care for a kitten this young ASAP it's not the same as caring for an older cat. Go and watch the Kitten Lady's videos on this topic on YouTube, she's an expert and explains everything in great detail.

They sometimes attack women, and likely small children, from the back sometimes. They're wild enough to still be dangerous.

Veal crates are used to save money

Crating dogs is used because dog owners believe that being abusive and treating dogs like dirt is needed (the emotional trauma obliterates their personality and leaves them permanently fearful and submissive, similar to how army grunts are trained to be brainless zogbots)

>A large pen with roaming room and water, specifically for small a puppy
That is not abusive and it makes veal crates look small

A closed "crate" without water however IS abusive, and not used to train a dog, but to avoid training a dog because mindbreaking it is easier. That is because most dog owners dislike dogs and only like owning them.

So cratefags are essentialy the inverse of those countryside hicks that chain a '"guard dog'" to a post in the middle of their backyard field without even giving it a doghouse to shelter it from the rain and summer sunlight, and only interact with the dog once a day just to feed it table scraps and butchering leftovers?
