My lutino female has started building the next with palm fronds... only problem is she has been building it for over a week now. Do they usually take this much time?

    They will often fuss about with their nest until they lay eggs.

We just adopted a Mastiff/Great Dane mix.we did a 2 week trial time and he weighed 92 pounds and 2 weeks later he is 96 pounds.He is only a year and a half old. He has a couple things we need to work on like barking and protecting us from those mean killer bunnies and squirrels in our back yard. He chases them with me attached! He is a wonderful addition to our family.

Our ball python Jafar has never been aggressive until recently. Recently he has become increasingly aggressive. We have noticed that he seems to be tracking our movements more often and had decided to feed him more frequently but smaller rats. (He was eating a jumbo about every four to six weeks and now is eating a medium rat about every other week) He actually struck my husband's hand (didn't coil and immediately released) during a feeding session. This is something unusual for him. I was wondering if there is any illness or condition that might render Jafar more aggressive and if anyone has any tips or advice. We love our snake but are becoming afraid to take him out. Thanks

    He could be trying to shed. Also cage aggression can develop because he sees you as his food source. When feeding, a Ball Python can exhibit aggression, and even after eating they can still be aggressive because they are still in the feeding mode. They do need to be held regularly to establish and maintain a good behavior. However one suggestion I read is to give him a few undisturbed days to 'get over it'. But before doing that, you should take him out and check him all over for any type of damage, and check the humidity and temperature levels of the enclosure. You may find the culprit being a cut or sore on his body, or an environmental change that's making him uncomfortable.

Budgies are a wonderful pet! I have four right now and they are definitely my best friends. I agree with the authors statement that giving them plenty of flight time will make them happier birds, I would just like to add that budgies are extremely curious and they should be watched constantly when they are loose. It's not uncommon for them to get into everything... turning your back for even a second can mean disaster!!

If you have been considering getting a budgie, you won't regret it! They are amazing friends and really bring life into a home :) Not to mention, they make the CUTEST little sounds :) All I ask is that you please do your research before buying your bird. It's best to understand what kind of food/supplies you need to feed and bring it home before even considering your pet. I have had parakeets for years and still find myself refreshing my knowledge on occasion, it is the best way to have your friend for a very long time :)

    Your found parakeet sounds like a great pet and it is behaving normally for a parrot just introduced to a new environment. Birds take a while to adjust to a new home, it may get more vocal as it gets acclimated. You're a great person for taking care of these animals and I wish you the best in finding them permanent homes.

    My kids just found a parakeet thrown away in a dumpster, cage in all, I have no clue what ti do with it, I bought it parakeet food, but its been quiet, eating, and cleaning itself. Aren't they usually noisy???I ccould use some advice here please. Im not an animal person at all, and I already housing a 9yr old chihuahua they found 2 weeks ago. Im not an animal or pet person, but can't stand to see an animal being abused or mistreated. Looking for forever homes for both pets, but want to take the best possible care of them and maybe show them the love an attention theyve probably never had. So any advice would be helpful. Thank you for your time

Can a male dog get aggressive???

    Yes, an unneutered male can become aggressive and hard to manage. They usually require a very experienced dog owner who can maintain discipline. Neutering males helps to reduce aggression from developing.

My Rottie is very funny. He loves bubbles and he loves peeping in my room. He is very inquisitive and lovable. I couldn't ask for a better Rottie

Hello, I have a large angelfish that has suddenly developed what seems to be a kind of 'tick.' It swims swiftly and jerkily and then seems to be trying to hold still. Some of the other fish in the tank seem to be doing a little rubbing also. I don't see anything else, but I suspect some sort of parasite. Am I right? What's wrong and what can I do? I don't want to lose this fish. I have had him almost a year and he is my biggest fish. Thanks.

    I have a fish same as this with a tic like features as well.
  • RAJESH KUNJIRAMAN - 2014-07-14
    pls provide some medicine
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-07-22
    I have read a number of suggestions to why an Angelfish starts to have a jerking type action. They range from shipping stress (which obviously isn't your situation), a natural breeding behavior, and even constipation. But because you are also seeing the rubbing action with some fish, I would look for a parasite too.

My male bearded dragon will not eat and is rolling over and over. He has one nasal plugged and I cannot open it seems to be having spasms. Not walking. I bathe him anyway to help him go to the bathroom and keep him hydrated. His labs are normal, does not have parasites. The vet wants to do extras and scans. I cannot afford this. Do you have any idea what could be wrong. What is there natural I can do to help him.

    It sounds like your beardie is well cared for. It it may be some sort of physical problem so I can understand why your vet wants to do more extensive testing. I have seen similar problems with frogs with spinal or nervous system disorders. Hope you can find a solution.
