I am a researcher interested in lung fish genetics. I am new to the fish world and have mostly worked with Zebra fish and tilapia. I am told by a colleague that it is difficult to tell physically a male from a female lungfish in the early stages. Anyone have and know male and know female specimens and is willing to send me specimens for DNA analysis?

    What an interesting endeavor. I wish we could help, but have no specimens. However, we would love to hear what you learn as you proceed, and we wish you all the best!

I have seen diamond tetras in my local aquarium and think they are mesmerising. I have a 90L tank with six corydora leopards, four otocinclus and two rams. Would five or six diamond tetras be okay with my other fish and would they be okay with my two rams?

    I have kept diamond tetras, and they truly are mesmorizing! I don't see any problem with your fish mix, and your tank is definitely large enough to house them. You didn't mention if you have any decor, but plants will also help with the mix, providing places for retreat as well as psychological comfort.

My Rosie has been my baby for 2 and a half years now. I hand reared her and she speaks so well and is so adorable. Past month or so, she has started to be rough with me and makes growling noises and attacks me. This could be around her cage, or out. 90% of the time she is good with me. She always wants to be near me which is so hard. Rosie flaps her wings in the cage, just like she is ready to fly on my shoulder but obviously she can't from the cage. She is also very itchy and is forever picking on her wings. Not losing any but just picking and flapping. My concern is her anger. I have read that she could be hormonal, and also that she might lay eggs, but can this happen without a partner? I'm a bit confused. Any personal experience and info would be great.

    Rosie sounds wonderful, I had a male Eclectus named, well what else... 'Beauty'! All parrots seem to go through what I call a 'teenage' cycle as they become sexually mature. During this time their personalities can change and they can become moody. It can last for a while too, often a year or more. It sounds to me that may be what Rosie is heading into, so a lot of patience and love are going to be needed. Good luck to you both:)

    Hi Syed, It's nice to know that you're interested in getting a marwari horse for yourself but I'd like to give a hint to you about the hassles of keeping a pet, especially a horse, they live for 30 years and need a lot of care on daily, weekly and monthly basis. So better start with joining a horse training school first and when after 6 months you still feel like having a horse of your own GO to animal fairs at Pushkar, rajasthan or Nagaur, rajasthan or to Sonepur, Bihar or contact Jodhpur equestrian club or any other reputed farms like Sarli farm 09779050700 or other such farms they will provide you a horse according to your needs.

I just got two love birds, a male and female, does anyone know why the male regurgitates its food and feeds the female? I have noticed this happens about 2 times a day. And also how do I know when they are going to have babies? Thanks.

    Hi Shelley, I'm not sure if you ever got an answer about why your lovies are feeding each other... It is a bonding ritual, basically means they are falling in bird love. To know when your birds will start laying put newspaper in the cage where the birds can get ahold of it. The female will start tearing it into strips and tucking these strips into their feathers to take back to the nest. Hope this helps. FYI, research needed for the nutrition for breeding birds, it is very important if they do not have the extra calcium/protein/vit A/etc. your female can become egg bound or end up with a prolapse that very well may kill her.

Pit Bulls are not dangerous animals. They are a reflection of their owner. If the owner is aggressive then the dog is mean. It's like the old saying, "The gun doesnt kill people, people kill people". Its not the dogs fault if it's trained to kill, it's the person that trained it. Chris H.

    Well I totaly agree. I have a red-nose pit and his name is Tank. He loves to be around people and he is nice to everyone well except to people that treat him wrong and that never happened before, when we leave him at home when we go on trips is that normal?
  • sara - 2011-09-07
    I disagree. I had a Pit Bull. I got him at 6 weeks old. He was the sweetest thing ever. I had him for 4 yrs. He was always handled gently. I only gave him possitive reinforcment. He would roll over for a belly rub any time a child came around. One day totally unprovoked he bit a family friend. OK so he tore him apart and the man needed plastic surgury. The man was well known to the dog. The dog liked him. I had to put my sweet baby down. Anyone who says its not the dog its the owner....has just been lucky so far. Pit bulls are totally unpredictable!
  • A.Good - 2011-09-16
    What dogs are predictable? I was bitten by a chow. He belong to a dear friend. I had been around and interacted with the dog several times prior to the incident. Just that day, I went to answer the phone and he attacked. I believe it was the quick movement on my part. At the time I had a chow myself when the incident occurred. Are all chows bad? NO! You are stating that all pit bulls are bad because of your situation. The way it sounds to me, you did not have control over your dog. The same as my friend, she loves her dog, but her dog lack obedience and she lacked controlling him. You as a dog owner should know your dogs temperment, likes and dislike and their body language. The dog most likely gave some sign that something was not right, you and the person who was bit did not notice it. Plus you have to remember they are not human they are still dogs not people. You can love your dog, but you have to maintain control over your dog especially around people. It's best to make sure your dog is properly trained and socialized.

    Thank you, I love my pitty and for the lady that said pitt bulls are vicious and unpredictable...like you said what dog isn't? The dog wasn't unpredictable...you were...you never trust the dog therefore the dog never trusts you. And that person must of done something to the dog for him to attack him...dogs don't forget faces just like us humans don't.

My female blood parrot is hiding under the filter and I'm starting to worry about her, she laid eggs 5 days ago and has been digging holes everywere and going around checking on the holes and then spitting eggs into the holes, only a few eggs turned white, the rest were tanned colour but didn't notice the black dot on them, her and the male ate the bad looking eggs last night and now she won't come out from under the filter, she's not stuck, I'm to scared to go into the tank and chase her out in case she stresses out and I get bitten and fish slapped. Help?

    Your female sounds fine, but it always amazes me, the interesting behaviors that animals display when they are in breeding mode. I wouldn't worry though, just let nature take its course (the female is doing what she deems necessary). And yeah... maybe keep your hands out of the aquarium unless you need to remove the eggs or do other maintenance. That will help reduce any additional stress on her.

Hello my name is john, I have a family of 4 my wife and two daughters 5 & 6. We all work and go to school we're home by 3:45 every day but in the mean time my mother inlaw lives with us. She is 70 years old, she is still moving around and what not but I heard of bull terriers being loyal to family I was wondering if it would be ok to have one with a woman her age?

    I think the dog would be fine, and actually an excellent addition. But I would ask you mother-in-law what she thinks about it, as it will be her constant companion. She may be very happy for the company, and the dog would have a companion too. Could be a win-win situation, but it must be a welcome addition for her.
