Lazy fish, dull colors, and tight fins are not normal. The fish in cups at the store act that way because of poor living conditions.
A healthy betta will be VERY active.
Lethargic behavior is always a warning sign with bettas. While lethargy and clamped fins are not a harmful condition themselves, it is a sign that they could be suffering from illness, or poor living conditions.
Oh yes it is quite active! I just yyyyyesterday? Maybe the day before, cleared out 30+ messages and have 19 to go through right now.
Just finished the outside!
*GASPS* HOLY SHT GOD YES YEEEEEEEEEEESSSS
NO that is by NO MEANS OK WOW
Holy SHIT is that not ok. I can’t even wrap my head around that it’s like??? Why would you get an animal if you aren’t going to take care of it? You can’T JUST KILL AN ANIMAL WHEN YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE CARE OF IT ANYMORE HOLY SHIT
First and foremost a 6 foot corn snake is virtually HARMLESS even if they DO bite you (which is very unusual). He has to specify what kind of snake he would consider “dangerous”. And just because a snake reaches 6 feet does not mean it is any more aggressive than it was a 5 or 4 feet. And expensive??? What the fuck does he mean by that? A $7 rat once or twice a MONTH is too expensive or something?!???! I REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK HE’S TALKING ABOUT.
Like. The only “dangerous” snake I can think of at 6 feet would be a particularly aggressive constrictor like an african rock or an extremely out of character burm or something. Or maybe a scrub python, but I highly doubt he’d get one of those at any point in time. And by “dangerous” I mean that at that length it would be wise to have two people handle them, for safety’s sake. Like, so the snake doesn’t decide to use your neck as support (NOT try to kill you literally assume your neck is a good branch to cling to) and accidentally suffocate you. That’s it.
That professor is fucked up. Just fucked up to ever consider something like that an option.
Oh my gosh anon you are too kind. I thank you!
Well, old age isn’t technically a cause of death. Typically animals that die of old age die from some kind of organ failure.
Fish generally show signs of old age before dying. Lethargy, lack of appetite, maybe even loosing some weight. They just slow down. They are open to illnesses at this time and they may die of some kind of infection eventually.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH FUCK GODAMNIT
Aw, thank you! I don’t do anything to my nails other than file them into shape. Unfortunately, that’s it and I can’t give advice!
That is the most amazing dream ever haha. Thank you!
