    So do you wait for crickets that are molting and offer those? That would be very inconvenient
  • chuck - 2014-06-09
    why not? I have had mine 3 years and she has had no problem with the shells.

I had this spider for a month. the day i got it i tried to hold it and it bit me. i had to go to the hospital, it's bitten me 5 times at least. i sold it to a guy who killed it accidentally because it bit him, and he had an allergic reaction to its
venom and he almost died! so i held a chilean rose-haired tarantula and it never tried to bite me, it rocks. so i suggest the chilean rose-haired tarantula but what ever you do, never...EVER...EVER get an ornamental tree spider.

    These spiders are sweet hearts. They are just shy. There have been no deaths from tarantula bites. The chances of being bit by a tarantula are very rare. The chances of severe side effects from a bite of this genus are significantly low against the number of bites. Moreover, tarantulas will warn you several times before they actually bite.
  • Arachnafaria - 2013-09-20
    Never pick up a tarantula unecessarily. Owned spiders for years. Never needed to pick one up. They aren't cuddly pets. Now a very beautiful tarantula has been killed unecessarily because people can't resist picking up a tarantula. Before you ever purchase any pet (whether it's a tarantula, dog, cat or anything else) DO YOUR RESEARCH! Indian orantmentals are well known for biting. Several Old World tarantulas are biters as they don't flick hairs as a form of defense.

i have a 5 inch silver arowana in a 15 gallon tank, is it too small?? the biggest aquarium available here is in my local pet store is 50 gallon, still too small?

    Yeah, 15 gallons isn't going to work for very long. Your fish will reach up to at least 24' in length when it is full grown so you'll need to upgrade even past the 50 gallon size.  Read the Aquarium Set-up information above for more info on this.

I have a long haired chihuahua that just turned a year old on the, 19th dec. His name is Lucky Boy. He is very smart, but every morning I find that he has peed all over the tiles outside my house this happens everyday. I do beat him and try to teach him not to do it but he still does it this is the only problem I have with him, other than that he is a really smart dog. How else can i train him to stop doing it ??

    It will never do any good to hit/beat a pup. Besides you are doing it after the deed is done so your dog just thinks you are hurting him for no reason which leads to anxiety and possibly the behavior. Could he be afraid of morning? That is a little pup and he can only hold it so long. You can remove water after 6 pm - should bedtime be the 11 pm. You can take him out earlier and possibly in time, he will be able to hold it longer. He is going per you he has 'peed all over the tiles OUTSIDE my house'. You can try and put paper down (or a wee wee pad on the tile and then move to grass. Hurting the dog each morning and the pup has no idea why will just lead to anxiety. He is housebroken and per you going outside -- now you have to figure out a way for him to go where you would like. You can walk him earlier.
  • Lucy - 2011-12-28
    Never beat a dog! Are you walking the dog outside? If you are just letting him out by himself..please change this routine and take him out on a leash and show him where to go potty. This will take time to correct his bad behavior but it can be done, only if you put in the time. (One of my dogs is 9mos, but I walk both of them in the rain and snow). Also, you can remove water early, so he can get all his pee out before you go to bed. But remember to give him water as soon as you get up is the morning. He is just a baby and can not hold his pee too long. But if you don't have the time to spend with him to train... either find him a new owner or get the water hose out and wash the tiles off each morning.

    You don't deserve to have a dog if you are going to beat him!
  • amanda smith - 2012-01-06
    No wonder he is peeing all over the tiles...you have pissed him off literally. don't beat your animal, how dare you!
  • Suzanne - 2012-01-16
    Do not hit your dog. He won't learn that way. Keep him a crate or the bathroom at night. Make sure you feed him just twice an day, take him out about 15-20 minutes later, praise him when he makes. At bedtime, lock him in the crate. Put a towel or old blanket in the bottom. Take him right out to make in the morning. Praise him again. Look online for good hints about potty training, too. Good luck!
  • debbie - 2012-04-27
    I would take him away from you
  • Donna Castro - 2012-04-28
    Are people so 'stupid' that they would actually hit a dog? Any breed of dog. We raised the most wonderful rott. with the help of a trainer, he was the best dog ever. We now have a long hair chihuahua we rescused from a shelter. Make a loud nosie when they bite, or are doing something wrong, they learn quickly. Donna
  • Cindy - 2012-05-07
    I wish I knew where you lived, you are abusing this poor chic, I have a 12 week old and would never think of hitting him, or hurting him in any way at all, maybe you need anger management classes and but first please put your dog up for adoption or give it to some that loves dogs
  • tootie - 2012-05-09
    I have found with my chihuahua, that if you get into a routine helps alot. I routinely get up at a certain time and take mine outside to the same spot, this has helped with accidents tremendously.
  • Holly - 2012-05-12
    Never beat a dog! My dog was beaten and now I give him extra protection, he is also a long-haired Chihuahua and personally I would take him away from you! You should be kind and use a POSITIVE attitude! Seriously, you make me wanna cry because you have beaten your dog!
  • loretta hoolmaa - 2012-05-14
    if u beat your dog YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE ONE
  • vicest - 2012-05-30
    My long hair pees too so I take her out before I go to sleep and as soon as I wake up and this helps a lot. She hardly ever pees in the house. Chihuahuas are strong willed dogs and don't respond well to being hit or beaten so try and not do that anymore. It's a little dog and it needs a lot of attention and I'm sorry but you decided to get the dog and take the time to do what your dog needs you to do and that's take her out to pee

    try putting his nose in it some times that will work
  • Selena - 2012-07-23
    A stern tone of voice is best, don't beat!!!!
  • Michelle - 2012-11-13
    I am finding the word beat problematic because its sounds harsh. I'm sure you just mean you reprimand. Try not to yell I have learned that Chico cringes and looks so ashamed everytime I do it and he's not listening to what I have to say. What I've found works is to say 'NO' when you see him start, stick his nose in the pee, and then take him to the litter box or outside or puppy pad and put him there and tell him firmly. 'THIS is where you go!' I did that and the next day when I was standing in the bathroom he walked over to the litterbox and made sure I looked as he went, I was so proud. I will forgive him for missing with his wee wee....he still made the attempt! LOL Michelle

    Um, why beat the dog?
  • Jan - 2014-06-10
    Never hit a dog. Unless you catch him in the act, he will never know what he did and why you are mad at him. Dogs live in the moment. I cant believe you would do such a horrible thing like beating your dog.He is to small to defend himself. If I knew where you lived I would take that dog away from you with a couple of cops behind me.

We just lost our 14 1/2 yr old longhaired sweetie pie 3 weeks ago. She was potty trained within a week, was not a barker and loved to cuddle. She was a huge part of our life and we miss her soo much! She stole the heart of everyone she came into contact with, young and old. We live in Pennsylvania and are looking for a sweet little long hair female in Pa, ohio, New York area. Can anyone help.

    Just found a dog at an animal shelter here in Long Island NY. We are having a family meeting on him. He looks like your sweetie pie. He looks like 2-3 years old. His hair is full and grown in. If we don't take her he would be a perfect match for your family. He has such expressive eyes too. We had a cocker poo who passed last September. My daughter has been in mourning and this dog bonded with her immediately. We just have to talk with dad to make our final decision.

Hi! I have Lutino(female) Lovebird and a peach-faced(male). Last week my lutino lovebird laid eggs, unfortunately the peach-faced bird escape from the cage yesterday. The lutino bird is the only one incubating the eggs. Can the eggs be fertile if the lutino lovebird only incubates the eggs? Is possible that if I will buy a new male bird he will incubates the eggs?

  • Charlie Roche - 2012-02-28
    Whether the eggs are fertile or not depends on whether the male and female successfully mated. Possibly the eggs are fertile and will hatch with just the female - but possibly not. The first couple of clutches are usually free as it takes mom and dad a little time toknow what they are doing. Purchasing a male to help the female sit the eggs - it is very doubtful that will help the situation and he just might break the eggs. Let her sit them and if they are fertile possibly she will feed them. If not hatched in about 20 - 25 days just remove them. Otherwise let her sit them. You don't want her to attempt to lay another clutch right away. After a few weeks (whether the eggs hatch or not) would be a better time to bring in another male.

Hello! I have 2 black moors in a 17 litre tank. One of my black moors is staying under the log or in the bottom, Why won't he/she swim around?

  • Jacqui - 2014-06-11
    Correct me if I'm wrong on this conversion, but I'm pretty sure 17 liters = about 4-5 gallons which is way too small for two black moors. I was always told to go by 10 gal per fish, so you would want to get at least a 20 gallon tank. The inactivity may be due to the stress of being in such a small space with another fish. Hope this helps!
