We have a male Chion that will turn 7 in May. He is a real joy. Very loving and extremely smart. Loves to cuddle and sleep with his mama and daddy right between us on his back with his head on the pillow. He loves to travel especially to go camping. I do not let him off the leash unless he is in an enclosed area because he loves to chase birds, squirrels and cats. He is ok around older children but does not like younger children and tends to growl and snap at them if they approach him.

    Ours, also, loves to sleep in bed between us with her head on the pillow as well as going for car rides and walks on the beach. We take our Chion, Caya, for walks off-leash on some trails at a park near us and luckily, we've never had problems with her going off (they're quite loyal to their owners). On occasion she will run up to a tree that a squirrel is going up, but always joins us in a few minutes. You might be able to work with a trainer to help with your dog's agression towards younger children. Ours is great with people of all ages.

Wow, amazing the difference in just one day. Our new puppy Chion came home sweet and fairly docile, and is apparently getting very comfortable in her new home. She was extremely rambunctious but also very aggressive with nipping and biting, almost uncontrollably. Any suggestions on how to discipline aside from a good stern 'NO' each time?

    Sounds like a cute and energetic puppy. I would start with love and consistent gentle discipline. But most of all, she's a puppy, so I would say patience and giving her plenty of time to get used to her new home and to grow up.
  • Nima - 2014-08-03
    I agree with the previous individual. As they are energetic, I would also suggest daily walks and games to stimulate them.

Can a Sulcata tortoise live outdoor in my garden? I live in California, Los Angeles and the weather is 70 to 90 day time, 40 to 60 night time.

    yes but you have to keep a very close eye on them and if they are not fully grown birds will try to eat them and also sulcata tortoises hate and do not go well with dogs
  • suzanne - 2014-08-03
    I have had our sulcata tortoise for 9 years and she grew up with and gets along with my 9 yr old teacup poodle, 7 year old pug and 2 year old boxer. In fact she sleeps in their dog house with them. To say they don't get along dogs is nit correct.

Olive (sorry but this is very detailed and long) - 2014-08-03
Hi i recently adopted a Britannia Petite Rabbit named Olive (hence my name) When i first got her home, I gave her time to get used to the surroundings of her cage which is big enough for her to jump around 4 1/2 times the length of herself (as she is just a baby) I then put a litter box in her cage a left her for the remainder of the day and night obviously with food and water. The next day I opened the cage door and made it her decision as to when she wanted to come out. I then proceeded to look in her litter box and noticed she had used it, I thought this was weird because she was just a baby and had never been litter box trained before but i saw she hadn't gone anywhere else in her cage. She was born litter box trained! When she finally came out of her cage I lay on my floor with my laptop, in my bunny proofed room, and let her explore me and the room. She sniffed my and each day we did this for a couple hours, we started with baby steps. Then i started getting her used to my hands, I tried to fed her carrots from my hand but she wouldn't take it yet,I started with a long carrot and made it shorter an shorter till she was eating right off my palm. Now she was associating my hands with treats. Anyways after a couple weeks of this she is now completely comfortable around me and follows me everywhere I go, she is completely litter trained and loves to lick:) I try to pick her up a little as possible but when I do she has no problem with it. If you want to tame and bond with your Britannia Petite rabbit this is the way to do it! I can honestly say she is the perfect bunny, even if she needs hours of floor time every day! Sorry this was so long and detailed but thanks for reading!!

Re Clydesdale Horses. Small point. Your article mentioned "feathers", the long hair on the lower part of the legs. The correct term is "feather", no "S". Feathers are on birds. Sorry to be so pedantic but can someone delete the "s".

      If the eggs are fertile, all five should hatch.

      how will i know if a love birds fischers is 5 or 6 years old?
    • Clarice Brough - 2014-06-27
      The age of birds is almost impossible to determine, other than as juveniles. Your best bet is to ask the person you got them from what their hatch date was.

    Thanks for your information on Tiger Barbs. I have 7 of these (one died recently) and they are doing fine in my 20 g tank with One Giant Danio (Very Aggressive), Red Rainbow, Pearl Gourami and Ram Cichlid. Tiger barbs are fun to watch with their fast movements and other fish have no problems from fin nipping. Perhaps 7-8 in group did the magic.

    This site is really good and I would love to have profiles of Red Tail Black Shark and Rainbow Sharks.

      I have 2 red tail sharks with my 5 tiger barbs as well as a pearl gourami 2 silver dollars and an albino barb. The red tails have been getting along fine with everyone. They have claimed their territory and don't put up with any crap from anyone else and they are fun to watch chase around with the tiger barbs. I have heard though that its a risk buying 2 redtails as one may bully the other to death but I haven't had that problem. I run a 20 gallon tank and could go bigger but everyone seems to be doing fine.
    • Harry Carter - 2014-06-08
      Both of you guys tanks Are WAAAAAAAAAY Too Small. Giant Danios are schooling fish as well as Silver Dollars. To the person that replied, You would need about a 110 Gallon Tank for those fish.

      anyone got suggestions on what keep it with? im thinking maybe with my tandus tandus catfish, hopefully they will be good friends ( unlike what happened to my bristle nose catfish )
    • Clarice Brough - 2013-05-14
      I think you'll have better luck with this combo, as they occupy different areas of the tank and don't look alike. Have fun!
    • kye turnbull - 2013-05-15
      Tandanus catfish don't look anywhere near what bristle nose look like, they look like silver tipped sharks but brown and have a tail.
    • kye turnbull - 2013-05-15
      an ell tail
    • 7bar7 - 2014-08-01
      I just bought 2 silver tipped shark.... My fish supplier would not sell only one... they HAVE to have another silver tip with them or they will not be happy... Sounds like some of the problems I read here may be from loneliness....

      8-10 tangs alone need a much bigger tank.  They need plenty of places to bed down at night to sleep.  I would get a much bigger tnak or cut down to 2 tangs.
    • Anonymous - 2013-02-15
      good luck with that
    • Daniel Bleier - 2014-08-01
      8-10 tangs would be far too many in a tank that size. My tank is 7'x2'x2' and I house 1 yellow, 1 purple, and 1scopas tang and trust me that is the limit. They have been ok for 3 years now but still show aggression at least twice a week.
