Hey everyone, I am currently doing a project for biology and need a few pics of specific organisms / animals. I'm sure someone here will have some of these as pets, so if you could post a pic of any of the following pets you may own without any finger / hand in it, it would be a HUGE help! Also, to make this not just about my project, feel free to post any pics of any pet you have. Thank you!
tl;dr - please post pics of any of the following if you have them as pets with no hand / finger in pic
Here's the specific things I need a picture of, and would be great if you have pics of them outside but indoor pic works as well:
- praying mantis
Also any plant you may own or any pics of plants / flowers you have from outside!

So apparently this is some kind of contentious issue on /an/ and I didn't see any other threads about it and I would like to know- why are so many people here so insistent that indoor is the only way to go?
I have adopted a couple of cats (brother & sister, both neutered) from the inner city where they were both outdoor cats and the owner wanted to rehome because she was worried for their safety, living next to a busy main road.
I live in the suburbs and here they are free to explore the back garden and field my garden back onto in relative safety. I tried keeping them in but after a week they were walking all over the window ledges, breaking things, fighting eachother, mewling constantly and demanding play all the time. One managed to escape though the skylight but I coaxed him back in with food.
Now that they are allowed out the back, they are much less destructive, much happier with me and each other, and get plenty of exercise so they sleep properly, which they usually do on my bed.
Was I supposed to never release them into the garden and just make them miserable for their own good?

Hey, /an/, I'm a fairly new fish owner, and I'm a little concerned about some tank starter minnows I got attached to.
I just noticed it tonight, but they seem really, really thin. I never underfed them, a good pinch every other day. They both are eating, but seem a bit suddenly thin and less active.
From what I've read, it may be fish TB.
Pic is the female I have.

I don't know how I'm going to do it, but I'm gonna work on convincing the men in charge for a /hort/ board. Even if it's slow, I know at least 20 percent of you bastards on 4chan garden. There is so much to talk about, I can even see it now, Monsanto threads galore, GMO threads, rate my plant threads, plants I saw in motha fuckin africa, foresters, botanists. Shit the possibilities are endless.
Who's with me? Not enough plant posts in this neck of the woods.

So earlier this year I had to put down one of my best friends due to him having a torn ACL, a cancerous tumor and him being 12 years old that was the best choice. I was in the room with my parents when he was put down, and it was peaceful, he just fell asleep but it hurt me so much to just watch him pass away. Moving on, my other dog who is 12 as well has been grunting a lot when she lies down and doesn't move much or eat a lot. Just tonight I noticed she didn't move when I offered her a treat but evenutualy she got up showing pain as she got up shaking and wouldn't lie back down for a couple minutes. I'm thinking its time for her to be put out of her misery as well but I don't think I can handle it emotionally to be there for her when she passes on.
I was diagnosed with depression when I was 12 or so and have been dealing with it for 7 years now and it's gotten worse recently so I fear for my mental state if I am there for her, what should I do?
