The place where I work, I found a pet toad in a cage that somebody left behind. I have no idea what kind of toad it is, either eastern american or fowler. Or cane. Looks like it can be either, and it's small too, not fully grown.
I've had it for about two weeks, and I give it bugs to eat but I've only ever seen it eat once.
It doesn't croak or anything. And when I put food in front of it he almost never eats it, just sits there and lets the bugs crawl on him.
He does not like being carried or touched. All he does is burrow in dirt. I fear he may not be eating right.
Toad advice thread? I'm not going to fucking let him go so don't bother

Greetings /an/ long time no see.
I am just visiting from /b/ with a rat question.
I am alregic to fur, and react badly to Cats, Dogs and horses. I have little problems with Bunnies (but it sometimes happen, havent handeled bunnies in a while)
Im wondering if i would react badly to rats?
I keep a leopard gecko, she seems to "enjoy" being taken on a stroll in the couch, but i think rats are neat, and would be a better animal to pet with. The gecko is mostly for show.

Hello /an/. I was here a few weeks ago when I first bought my two budgies named Rexxar and Lydia.
I come bearing bad news, Rexxar died suddenly at night, I found him this morning, belly up at the bottom of his cage.
Sadly, I don't know what caused his death, which is why I come to you. Could something cause a very young budgie to simply be fine one day and dead the next?
The most logical thing I can think of is that he was sick or something, but he showed no signs of it.
Could Lydia have attacked him? She would squawk quite a bit whenever I wasn't in the room, but when I walked in, she would instantly quiet down, so if she was hurting Rexxar, I wouldn't be able to tell. Though I think I would have noticed any wounds he might have incurred.
My most important question, however, is if I should get another budgie. I don't know if Lydia is territorial or not, so I don't want to put another bird in there if it will put them in danger.

Hi /an/ - definitely not a dog expert here.
This isn't urgent or anything, but I'm curious.
Years ago we had a border collie purebred (but we didn't buy him from a breeder, he came from a rescue farm). He was still growing about 8 months in, but one day we brought him on vacation to a cottage with us.
We kept throwing a ball for him, but it accidentally rolled into a bee's nest we didn't know was there and he dove headfirst into it.
Immediately after, he developed epilepsy and stopped growing altogether. We kept him well for as long as we possibly could, but at about the 4 year mark he started getting memory loss and his medication didn't work, and he was beginning to hurt himself, so we unfortunately had to put him down.
Has this ever happened to someone else? I know the bee nest was our fault, but we had no idea it was there, it was hidden in an alcove near a pond.
Picture kind of related, it's a border collie but not my Cisco.
