ITT: Create a realistic (at least by /an/ standards), imaginary animal that lives 50 million years in the future. Describe it, write a narrative about it, name an extant relative, and If you're ambitious enough, draw it. Megafauna are encouraged but don't get carried away. Be creative. Pic related is my first entry. >Species: Deusposeidon >Morphology: raptorial cetacean (whale) >Length: up to 42 meters >Mass: up to 320 Tonnes >Role: apex marine predator >Present Day Ancestor: Orca (Killer Whales) >Description: >Deusposiedon enjoys its position as the pinnacle predator of the ocean of the future. >It evolved from present day Orcas but developed a head more akin to the Sperm Whale, of which it has no relation. >It's teeth can be as large as 1 meter in length and weigh 70 kilograms, giving it a fearsome mouth that can effectively bite a small yacht in half. >In order to attain its immense size, Deusposiedon evolved the unique ability to adjust its metabolism at conscious will, to compensate for the environment and availability of prey. >The animal bears a hint of the classic black and white coloration of its Orca ancestors, albeit boasting far more vibrant and complex scheme. >Deusposiedon's diet includes virtually anything human sized or larger that swims in the ocean, although it has somewhat discriminating taste. >When the animal's metabolism is "set" at high, it can make transoceanic trips in as little as a week. >While a supremely fearsome predator, Duesposiedon exhibits the grace found in all whales and dolphins.

/k/ommando here. One of my dogs is older and 2 weeks ago he was running inside and hit his paw on the baseboard. His nail snapped a bit and the nerve was exposed. I've tried wrapping it, putting flour/neosporin on it and everything else I can but it still bugs him and he won't stop licking the spot to tell me it is annoying him. I've tried looking up other options online to no avail and my vet is worthless. Would sealing it with super glue work? If not what can I do? >Picture is unrelated but who doesn't love a dog on a tank?

Ants

Hello /an/. I've an interesting piece of text to share with you. It's called the intelligence of ants. "A single ant or bee isn't smart, but their colonies are. The study of swarm intelligence is providing insights that can help humans manage complex systems, from truck routing to military robots." Peter Miller, National Geographic What is intelligence? Well, Mainstream Science on Intelligence, an editorial statement by fifty-two, yes, you read correctly, fifty-two researchers defined intelligence as: „A very general mental capability that, among other things, involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly and learn from experience. It is not merely book learning, a narrow academic skill, or test-taking smarts. Rather, it reflects a broader and deeper capability for comprehending our surroundings—'catching on,' 'making sense' of things, or 'figuring out' what to do.“ So, can a single ant do any of this? The answer, of course, is no. But maybe a single ant isn't really what we should be looking at. Maybe instead we should be looking at the whole picture. The whole ant hive. To quote Wikipedia: „Organisms undergo metabolism, maintain homeostasis, possess a capacity to grow, respond to stimuli, reproduce and, through natural selection, adapt to their environment in successive generations.“ Can a single ant do this? Well, it does have a metabolism, it does maintain homeostasis, it grows, it responds to stimuli, but it cannot reproduce and it cannot adapt to it's environment in sucessive generations. Not on it's own. But an ant hive can. An ant hive undergoes metabolism, a „set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of living organisms,“ through the metabolisms of each particular ant, it maintains homeostasis, a chemical balance within the hive, the hive grows, responds to stimuli, reproduces through the queen and adapts to it's environment.

This is a long shot but there's a spider building a web outside my window and I need to know what kind it is. Pic related it looks sort of like a brown recluse in coloration in that it is dark brown with a very white and very large abdomen. like seriously its abdomen is hugely bulbous and a whitish with a hint of mottled brown; im afraid it might be pregnant. the legs are smaller than a brown recluse's though; the spider is about the size of a quarter or a bit less including leg span. also im outside of the brown recluse's range here in the northeast (connecticut). does anyone have any ideas? im sorry if this post seems very rambling and unorganized but i am very frightened by this spiders continued presence. it is building a web right outside the screen to my window and i cant leave my window open because if it is pregnant and gives birth the babies could come in through the screen and kill me possibly. ive tried blowing it away from the screen with a compressed air can but its web is too strong and it always bounces back to go hide in the corner of the screen. the only alternative i can think of is to buy some ratshot for my .22 and put some holes in my screen and this cunt spider (im afraid to use my standard velocity .22 because im in a suburban setting and there is a rocky hill outside my house and im afraid a .22 round could bounce off a rock and go into a neighbors window; .22 ratshot wouldnt have enough velocity to be a problem. this would be the first time i have used one of my firearms in anger so i will need time to mentally prepare myself for the kill if this course of action is deemed necessary. is there some anti-spider variant of RAID? i have a can of wasp RAID but i dont think it is safe to use indoors

Does anyone here work with horses? If so share your experiences, fun stories, scary stories, etc. I have been helping out on a ranch for a few months helping to take care of 7 and learning to ride. So far I have been having a blast.

Alright /an/, I'm bored and will be home all night. Anyone got any questions for an evil Petsmart worker? (Kidding?) Our policies, procedures, blah blah anything. I've worked there for 3 months now and don't know everything, but this is the best job I've had so far and will continue learning there, I hope.

Been on a bit of a kick for good docs lately, I've been picking up stuff from a range of subjects but aside from obvious stuff like the Planet Earth series I'm looking for recommendations with animal-related topics. Saw pic related the other day and enjoyed it a lot but I'm pretty flexible with specific subjects

Okay guys, long time lurker first time poster here. I just wanted to hear what you guys had to say on the subject of red wasps. Let me start by saying I'm a firm believer in the philosophy, if you leave them alone they'll leave you alone. This seems to be true with 90% of the wasps I've encountered, which is a ton since I live in a rural area of Missouri. Now I've lived peacefully with them for a very long time but I've been stung by red wasps a total of 5 times this summer while cutting grass. I have a large nest under the eve of my front porch, but these are the regular wasps I'm used to seeing. In fact, despite me being within 10 feet of their nest multiple times a day they never bother me. The red wasps however have stung me before, during, and after I cut the grass. I have looked and looked for their nest and finally I found it in a tree a good 30 feet away from the house. I've even witnessed the red wasps attacking the other species. My question is are these wasps more aggressive than their counterparts? And has anyone else had unusual experiences with these guys? I'm just somewhat curious and I'll check back when I'm finished cutting grass(hopefully while avoiding these little monsters.)

What do betta fish need in order to live a happy, healthy life? A guy who I share my office with bought a betta a while back, but he has it in one of those tiny fishbowls that fit in the palm of your hand. I don't know much about fish, but if he is not going to take care of that fish I want to take care if it myself. What does it need?

Hey /an/, what's a good apartment pet? I have to rule out a cat, because they piss everywhere and generally stink. You can smell someone who owns a cat(or at least I can, and I owned one for many years).
