Female pet African clawless otters, "normal" behavior in a house. You do not want a pet African clawless otter. I have no idea how or where to get one. Don't ask. You do not want a pet African clawless otter. Get a ferret.
I don't think it's possible to watch this without smiling.
If Tristan Thorn, hero of Neil Gaiman’s remarkable Stardust, had offered to gallivant off to the Arctic to slaughter a polar bear and bring its head back to President Obama as a birthday gift, Barack would have sternly told him “No-no!”
I jest in fun, because this is such fantastic news. If you’ve seen Earth (or An Inconvenient Truth or Planet Earth or any other climate change documentary made by people other than half-wits—or even one of those “We’re All Connected” posters), you know that polar bears are having a pretty rough go of it these days.
It was amazing to think of all of these incredible creatures that walked the Earth much earlier than we did—so humbling and at the same time simply delightful. That’s why I’m taking a personal offense against the news that some scientists are saying that a third of dinosaurs that have been catalogued don’t even exist.
While they are typically impossible to potty train, you can train them to fly to your hand and get along with other pets in your household. They are very lovable and affectionate animals who need the company of other sugar gliders and lots of love attention from their owners to be happy and fulfilled.
Monkeys can live for up to 40 years and are very intelligent, curious, and capable mammals. In most cases, you will have to obtain a state permit or license before buying a monkey and be sure to research reputable breeders and stay away from folks without licenses.
Fennec foxes are nocturnal omnivores native to the North Africa desert. They are small, large earred creatures that never exceed 3 lbs and are extremely social and playful. Not considered domestic, these exotic pets are kept in the U.S.A., Canada, and Japan although jurisdiction varies, meaning they are not legal in all states.
Scientists are reporting some disturbing news about the rate of species extinction these days. There has been a rapid increase in the number of species that are going, going and gone, mostly attributed to loss of ecosystems and biodiversity in general.
These losses are largely attributed to climate change, urban sprawl and pollution—all at the hands, or mostly at the hands, of humans. Scientist members of the Diversitas group of experts on diversity say that world leaders have failed to combat this loss as they had previously committed to do.
The black-footed ferret, like its un-endangered domestic cousin, is intensely curious, and tends to develop odd obsessions around objects, which it then steals.
The black-footed Ferret, or Mustela nigripes for you Latinists, is a small carnivorous North American prairie animal that lives in complicated social clusters and burrow complexes. It is the only ferret native to North America. Ferrets are kin to weasels, mink, polecats, martens, and even otters, and badgers. Te Black-footed ferret should not be confused with the domesticated ferret, popular as a pet and not at all in danger—and not native to North America. The black-footed ferret is native, and is the rarest mammal in North America. Mustela nigripes was declared extinct in Canada in 1934, and endangered in the U. S. in 1967.
