That’s pretty cool
Just some pics for bunny-virus sorry I can’t get actual screen caps.
That I did know. Dangerous as hell those animals, and people wouldn’t suspect a normally slow animal would be so deadly
I’m honestly really not that surprised. They’re big water dwelling mammals so -shrugs-
Next time you’re at the pet store and are thinking about taking home a new friend, keep in mind that this should be for life! But how long might that life be? Small mammals, like rats and mice, often have fairly short lifespans, with many of the pet trade’s rodents only living a year or two. Reptiles and amphibians, however, can have much longer lifespans. Here is a chart I made when looking at the reptiles and amphibians my local PetSmart had in stock.
Obviously this list is nothing close to complete, but take a good look! Just because a reptile is inexpensive doesn’t mean it’s going to live a short life; leopard geckos, for instance, can cost as little as fourteen dollars at the pet shop but can live a very long time. Some of the oldest have lived longer than twenty-five years! And then take a look at how long the Russian tortoise can live. If you buy a Russian tortoise as an adult, there’s a chance it can outlive you! Small pets deserve the same love and respect we give our dogs and cats; help your pet live out its full lifespan healthily and happily by making sure to know all you can about your pet’s species and its needs!
THIS GOES FOR EVERY ANIMAL EVER. if you get an animal for your kid, that animal is still your responsibility. you need to research their care and you need to double check that it’s carried out properly and if your kid gets bored, SURPRISE it’s your responsibility now.
basically, your 8 year old kid can barely take care of themselves don’t even pretend like they can provide proper care for an exotic animal with specific (sometimes very difficult to meet) needs without some sort of guidance. teach your kids the importance of looking into proper care and providing it like my mom did instead of letting the animal suffer while you sit around apathetic.
also, letting your kid make an animal suffer and ultimately die is not a “good lesson” for them. animals aren’t inanimate objects.
