Adam Zaryk - 2014-10-30
Hello everyone, I just purchased a red knee tarantula last Sunday October 26. Now she's(I hope) is a 1 1/2 old according to the breeder. Unfortunately, I put her in a 20 gallon( I know, way you to big) I divided it with a small reptile wall, if she wanted to she could go over it but she doesn't. She stays on the one side probably smaller than a 10gallon and has two hides on that side. My dad is actually taking care if her when I'm at college. Yesterday I had him offer her first food since I got her. She did not take it... And according to my dad she is actually in the half coconut hut the whole time and she is actually burrowing I guess because there is dirt covering the whole. Sorry for the really all over the place story. Anyways do you think I should move her to a 10 gallon, or put back in the tub aware container that she came in? Also is she okay being in the burrow all of the time? I know they burrow but this much? I fell in love with this tarantula the second I saw it so u want everything to be perfect. Thanks in ahead of time and sorry for the all over the place post

    She sounds like she's doing fine where she is, but she may come out more in a smaller home.

    Ok thank you, I will be going home in a week and I will move her into a 10 gallon. My dad lifted her hide up to try to feed her and she did not take it but today, she covered her hut again and mixed the Eco earth with her webbing and on the outside as well. So I am currently having him drop a small cricket close to the door. Hopefully she will take it but I do not have much hope because the entire door is covered with the Eco earth/webbing. Should I continue to offer her food or let her be?

    They are generally good eaters, but each one can have it's own behavors. It is suggested they only be offered one food item at a time, though they can be fed about one to three times a week. More than one food item can be intimidating for some. Some foods are large gut loaded crickets, cockroach, king mealworms, waxworms and locusts.

    It should be okay. The Mexican red leg can go for about 3-4 months without food it may not be hungry.

I've had my Yellow Nape Amazon parrot for almost 26 years. She was a 5 year old and immediately bonded with me. I was in a pet shop and she chose me, laughing, throwing kisses, singing, etc. I asked, 'how much' and was told she's being boarded. Went in for dog food again and was told she might be for sale. Long story, Short, I jumped at the chance. Her name was Knucklehead and still is. What a joy life has been with her. She sings, speaks in my dad's voice and he's been gone for over 13 years. My Dad taught her to cackle like a chicken and crow like a rooster over the phone and to this day, all I have to say is, 'what did Grandpa teach you?' And she performs it. She also whistles the tune from 'Mayberry' without missing a beat. I love, love, love had my Yellow Nape Amazon parrot for almost 26 years. One day, when my Rottweiler was in her last days, I left the room for a minute, with knuckie on her perch, came back and she was sitting at the shoulder of my 'old girl'. I panicked and picked her up afraid she'd get hurt. I believe with all my heart, knuckie was comforting my old girl!!! She has been a loyal friend, companion, pet everyday since I got her and hope to have many more years with her. Thanks for listening ;)

Morgan horses are spirited, but are they jumpy and highstrung? I am looking for a first horse and I am afraid of horses when they are highstrung. Thanks.

    Well any horse can be high-strung, but Morgan horses generally aren't too high-strung. Other good ones are Quarter Horses and Paint Horses.

    It depends upon the type of Morgan family the Morgan horse you select comes from. I have a 'Show' Morgan and this type is spirited, sassy, proud yet stubburn and defiante. She can be a handful if you are hardhanded or give poor cues in how to work her. She is more like a performance horse. A friend of ours has a 'Working' Morgan and that type is easygoing, lighthearted with a willingness to be your companion. It's this type of horse which most persons envision owning. They are kind of like the Paint horse or maybe even a Quarter horse. But, please check out what his/her lineage is before you commit yourself to the Morgan horse. I love our 'Show' Morgan, she is alot of work and full of sass but she is well worth the time and effort put into her.

    Any horse can be high strung, I have a 4 year old quarter horse mare that hasn't been ridden in over a year because she got injured terribly while running in the field with my Uncle's horses. They caused her to kick a trailer and her hoof came half off, she was on stable rest for months after that. Now her hoof is healed except when I get on her, she bucks. So um...I guess my point is, any horse can be high strung or aggressive or both. But my suggestion would be a cross-breed, maybe a Morgan, Clydesdale mix? I have one of them and she is amazingly well behaved and talented, she's also great for beginning riders, she's 17. Try looking up cross-breeds and tell me what you think! I hope this helped!

Also note that red-footed tortoses LOVE humidity. If your tortoise is kept inside or in an outside enclosure in an area with low humidity you must provide them humidity. If you can't provide a smoke machine/mister or frequent sprinklers, I have found it effective to turn a plastic container such as a trash can on its side, bury it a couple inches in the ground, and fill it up with mulch. Keeping the mulch wet all the time allows for a good humidified area that your tortoise can crawl into and regulate his own humidity. Enjoy your red-foot and take good care of him/her!

Hi Hailey. Your bunny is so cute, it sure has a personality. Are they all like this kind of personality? I was wondering where can I find this type of bunny. I had two new zealands since they were babies. We don't have them anymore because they got old and died. My son loved them so much and still missed his bunnies and some times he cries. When I read about your bunny, I thought of him and so I will like to get him at least one for his birthday. Do you know If they're hard to find?

    The birds could be plucking each other, and the way to know for sure is to put them each in their own cage. Feather loss can also be due to mites, lice, or  possibly other diseases. Check the birds and the cage out closely for pests. Sometimes a checkup with an avian veterinarian is needed to determine the cause get treatment.
