No Rat thread? Rat thread!


Owned rats for almost 9 years now, and I currently own 3.
Any questions? Ask them! I've cared and raised rats for years so I should be able to help.

That being said, if you are having a serious medical issue with your rat, please seek help from a small animal specialist.

How to regain trust with my puppy

No.2487299 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hey /an/, I'm coming to you with a bit of an issue. I don't think my puppy trusts me, and today it kind of hit a violent climax.

>taking puppy out for potty break before I go to gym
> she's finished going potty, so I go to pick take her off her leash to carry her up the stairs because muh hip displaysia prevention
>snarls when I go to pick her up, bites my hand very hard and it goes deeply into my finger
>react by putting her on her back and holding her scruff and keep her there and she lays there quietly for a little and closes her eyes sadly
>I feel horrific and quietly carry her to her play pen and go to the gym after cleaning/bandaging my wound
>she avoids me for a little when I get home from gym

I dun goofed, hard. She seems to be alright around me now and I've been very calm and quiet around her and she's currently on my bed with me chewing a toy and being fine. But I know that I've broken trust. How can I rebuild it to the point where she's okay with me picking her up and carrying her up the stairs, or taking her to her playpen when I need to do work or something? She's a 14 week old shepherd and had had issues with aggressively reacting every time I try to correct her ( like moving her away from trash or the cats litter box) or when I try to bring her into her pen for a little bit of quiet time. If she was fully grown, she could have taken my hand off. I don't want her to be fearful or mistrusting of me and I don't want her to hurt someone else.

Apologies for the crummy picture, but does anyone know what type of grass this is? I live in the south of England if that helps at all.

All I really know is that it sets off my allergies the most. Holding this shit made me a teary mess.

Anyone here live in Louisiana? What birds can I own here? I'm thinking about buying one or a couple to have as pets for awhile. Need a new hobby unironically aside from shitposting and playing vidya.

Getting Hermit crabs: advice /an/?

No.2487758 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I have a 24in by 10in by 21in tank. Don't know how many gallons, but how many hermies u think could go into it?

Other questions:

. Where to buy good sand in North East, USA and salt water (other than the shore)?

. Is pete moss ok for the tank and if not what then?

. Can fiddler crabs and hermies coexist and if so how would I set that up?

Any other advice, etc. Thanks!
