I plan on getting a baby appaloosa but I'm only 13 and have to pay for it myself. I'm so happy except I don't want to pay so much for something I may not enjoy. Would someone please tell me if this is the right choice or if I should go for something else!?

    Appaloosas can have good temperaments. It depends! Other good horses are Quarter Horses and Paint Horses.

    They are very calm and a good calm ride. I'm 14 and have my own. I have no experience with male Appaloosas. But I have a female and she is low maintenance and always ready to ride. I'm not sure if it is common in others, but mine does not like when other horses are behind her, but she is paired with my miniature horse and is fine with it. Be careful!

These exotic pets are best pets for display not for "hands-on". my malaysian forest scorpions are 2 1/2 inches (not including the tail) 11 months old and it molts 3 times already.. they are better than the emperor because they move very often and you can see it's perfect scorpion appearance.. remember: handle it with care.

Needless to say I love my Blue, and Gold Macaw. When I want to take a nap some times?? I will be asleep, and the next think i know My blue, and gold has crawled down her cage, and on to the arm of my chair, and she will roll in my lap,and turn up side down, and play like a kitten. that really will wake you up for a long time. One time she did that when I was napping, and she was giving me kisses on my cheek, and wanted to play.yea.

I have a problem with my Macaw Izzy. Her poop has turned really loose and runny. Doesn't seem to be food related. She eats ZuPreem Fruitblend for large birds. She has never done this before. She is four years old and very healthy. She is a happy bird and she talks a lot. She can get loud but nothing out of the ordinary. Any suggestions on what I need to do?

    Sounds like Izzy is a wonderful bird, and a great companion too. Your concerns are not uncommon, the most common causes for loose stools in parrots are an overgrowth of either bacteria or yeast. Another is a parasite known as giardia and there are others too, but these are by far the most common.



    Of course the best bet is to take a fresh stool sample to an avian vet to help determine the cause. However initially something that you can try that won't harm your bird is to mix a probiotic like Bene Bac (which you can get from any bird store or large pet store) in with its food. This will help you put 'good' bacteria back into the GI tract, and can often eliminate any 'bad' bacteria at the same time. If the problem clears up (observe the stools for 1-2 weeks) then you're good, if not then an examination by a vet is in order.

    Hello there: I also have a Blue, and Gold Macaw, and we just love her,and she is a blessing. The answer to your question is:: Dont feed her or him fruit blend all the time. feed her the Macaw big bites, that have the picture of the Hicyneth pic on it. and the big bag. Feed your Macaw twice a day or your bird will eat too much.Change the food every day, and also the water.Feeding the fruit blend all the time will make her eat more, and not get the vitamins that it needs. it can hurt the stomach some. that is why the poop is too loose. Gradually your bird may get sick, and keep check on the food every day to make sure it is fresh. Keep in touch, and let me know how your Macaw is doing. Make sure your macaw is taken to the vet for regular checkups. I do mine. If there is a problem you can catch it early. good luck.

    Not eating is a concern. The poop should have some white, but there should also be some solid green or brownish matter as well as clear fluid. If your bird is a new pet she could be adjusting, but talk to the previous owner to find out what they were feeding her, as offering the same food initially can help her adjust. If she is established then there is a good chance something is wrong. Either way, I suggest you take her to a veterinarian for a check up right away.

I am trying to get a Goliath bird eater for my first tarantula. Would this be a good idea? I always thought it was pretty cool that a spider could get this big and I really would like to have one. The idea of a giant spider sitting on my shoulder while playing 360 sounds good. Please if anyone has any advice please comment.

    Hey man that's not really a good idea, they are very unpredictable and it could release hairs in our face and that would really suck. If anything you should get a rose hair tarantula they are about 5'' and extremely calm ... pete

I have an African Sideneck Turtle and she is acting like she can't swim and is going to drown? She only seems happy when I have her in a blanket. She is eating though. HELP! :)

    First look at her environment, make sure she has an adequate basking area and the right lighting/heating. If all that is proper, then she may have an internal parasite or other problem and you may want to take her to a veterinarian.

    They aren't very good swimmers. You should try to slope your underwater environment so she can easily reach the surface.

I got two mini lops, they are 4 1/2 months old and are very skittish. They hate being held and don't want anything to do with us. They get along and play with our dog, but want nothing to do with humans. Is this normal behavior? How do I get them to come around we have had them for a month now.

    well Devin this is not very common but my rabbit Lilly was like that until I started spending lots of time with them maybe they will like that forever but spend more time with them and treat them while you pet them and such I really hope this works for you!!

I noticed 3 days ago, a beautiful white dove perched on my shed. It has been here since. Every morning I go out and feed it. I first gave it a cornmeal and bread mixture, which it seemed to enjoy. My question is: 1. How do I encourage it to build a nest. 2. How do you identify the male from the female? I have only seen the one. I do not have interest in bringing it indoors ... but I do like the idea of it nesting in my yard. Any suggestions??

    What a pleasant surprise. However, with only one bird there won't be any breeding action. If a friend does show up, see the breeding section in the Dove and Pigeon Care guide, the link to it is at the bottom of the intro section above.
