Hi, I have had my parrot for about 15 years and she is a wonderful pet. She has never bit me but others. Now she seems to want to squat and make little purring noises. Both inside her cage and out. We live alone. She has never been around other birds. She is very picky about her food too. Doesn't sing or talk like she used to. Please help?

I have several budgies that are pied yellow/ blue. Sometimes they hatch with grey/ yellow, some with turquoise/white/ yellow. Has anyone seen this anomaly before? Is there any commercial interest? Please let me know as I haven't even found any reference to these combos anywhere! Hogg1199@yahoo.com

Hi everyone,,, I have a 6mnth old Bully. His name is Fritzie,,,recently fixed. He is very dominant. Which is to be expected. As in most of the comments I've read about Bully's he jumps on me to enforce his will. When I ignore him or turn and try to walk away, he starts nipping me everywhere. On my anckles, calves and arms. He then gets in front of me and jumps up bitting my t-shirt or shorts ( I call it my Bully outfit).Positively I can say he is intelligent and like to be challenged mentaly. I gave him a ice cream tub in which I taught him to put is small toys in, which he then carry in his mouth ect. He learned to sit in under an hour, and now do so without a verbal command. I only need to show him with my hand. He sprints avoer our lawn when I throw his ball, and when he gets to me he slows down so that I can hold him on is back from behind and then I must run with him, toy in his mouth. At night he 'asks' to go into his crate when he wants to gomto sleep (awesomeness) Did I mention that he is OH SO CUTE! I've learned to wait for the appropriate opportunity to give him any affection. HOW CAN I STOP HIM FROM NIPPING ME IN ORDER TO BE CONSISTENT WITH MY DISIPLINE! !!! I have a 11 year old daughter, ,,, she is also very much in love with him as I am. At the moment I am the only one who's brave enough to face him.

    He sounds like an adorable puppy, but yes, you do have a problem. From what I've read, you don't want to allow your puppy to get away with biting and nipping because if you do, he may develop behavioural problems later in life.

    Training that I've read suggests that you treat the nipping the same way his mother would; yelp loudly and then say 'NO' in a firm, disapproving tone. This lets your puppy know that he's hurting you. It's okay to over-react and sound a little more hurt than you actually are, as this helps him under stand that his bite hurts and that biting humans is wrong. Then turn away from him, ignore him for about 60 seconds, and then play with him a bit. YOu can give him a rubber bone or toy to chew on so he learns that its okay to chew on it, just not on you or other people.

    Oh I remember this stage so well lol I've still got the little rips in the knees and ankles of my pj bottoms and several pairs of jeans! I too thought my dog had a problem and I even worried at one point if he would become aggressive but I needn't have, he is a big softie :) Here's what I did, I got a crate and used it for a doggy time out ;) Every time he nipped or tugged on my clothes I would tell him 'NO' in a very firm deep voice, if he ignored my warning and continued to nip/ bite I took him by the collar to his 'naughty crate' as you would a child by the hand to a naughty step! He went in his crate for 5-10 mins but he was always in the same room. I felt this was important because he could still see the rest of the family, interacting/playing etc.... only he couldn't join in, he was excluded from whatever we were doing. And of course he wanted to join in. After 5-10 mins he was allowed out to join the rest of  'the pack' but the second he nipped he was straight back in the crate. He soon got the hang of it as he didn't like to be excluded from his 'pack'. Also, I made whoever he nipped put him in his crate, so if he nipped my 9yr old she would take him by the collar to his crate. This also helped him to know his place with the kids and prevent him from attempting to dominate them. It is just a phase though and he will stop, especially if you consistently tell him off for it. The crate thing worked well for me. Good luck

These animals are awesome. I would not want to be stuck in a room with one of these. I do wonder what type of venom this lizard produces.

Hi! My husband and I have been the proud owners of a green spotted puffer (Penelope) for the last two years...we raised her in a 6 gallon fluval edge...which I know is way too small for her, but she's always been a very happy fish with a very white belly. We've also always just put aquarium salt in her tank...never marine salt. We've recently moved her to a much bigger 25 gallon tank. And she seems unhappy. Any suggestions? Also, do you think we should transition her to marine salt? We want her to have the longest and best life that she can't have...we are VERY fond of her! Thanks so much!

    Sometimes a new enviroment can cause some stress, and that may be why its acting unhappy. But if its eating, that's a good sign. These fish do need a much more brackish water as they get older, with a salinity of 1.018-1.022 for an adult, this is almost a full saltwater environment. You can get a marine salt at a pet store, which may be helpful as they include trace elements that are essential for saltwater fish.

    How tall is it?

    My green spotted puffer recently refused to eat for almost a week because I took out an aquarium decoration. I thought it would like more room to swim. Did you take out anything that was in the old tank? I put the decoration back and it started eating the next morning. Crazy fish. Its name is jaws because it ate the other fish.

Hey. These catsharks are really cool fish. I never knew they were brackish! My dad had some of these a while back. Oh yea, they do not get up to 24 inches, they only get up to 12, usually 6-8.

    I don't want to sound rude but you're wrong...I have 2 that are over 12 inches. Go check out monster fish keepers and you will see.

    Hey thanks for the info
  • lvmblfkdmb - 2011-08-28
    Mine are 13 in.

    While this fish *can* get up to 24 inches in size, it is actually quite rare. I have kept several of these over the years in various tanks and setups and the largest I have had was 15 inches long. Most of them actually topped out at approx. 10 inches. I've kept them in larger and smaller setups, and even with lots of room to grow and feeding regimens geared towards growth, I've only had the one that hit 15 inches; (150 Gallon setup). Normally I'll get them as babies, move them from fresh to brackish, eventually ending with them fully converted to a marine setup as in the wild, they are born in freshwater, as they move to the coast, salt gets in the water putting them into brackish, then they find their way to sea, spending periods at sea, eventually returning to spawn.

    James, I agree with you. They are cool, and I own four that are three years old, and they're only one foot long

    I have four that are more than 18 inches in length in full marine saltwater.
