Re: Uncommon Animal Facts

Dachshunds are so long due to dwarfism. They really should have longer legs, but genetic mutations and 'defects' have reduced the leg size. Not so long a dog, huh?

Trail Cams: Answers and Discussion

I know many people who have been interested in trail cams, but were daunted by adds for 'high tech, high quality, not for the amateur' type adds. Truly they are easy to use and have great results if you use them correctly. Here I'll share hows, whys, and hints. If there are questions, I'll answer if...

Re: Gone Forever: History of the Thylacine

By the dates, I mean in the wild as far as I know. I do believe they went on for quite some time in captivity afterwards, much like those wild asian horse things(Oh, what are they called?). Though, I may be thinking of something else(Too much info running around my brain about small, extinct creatur...

Re: Gone Forever: History of the Thylacine

Thylacines actually didn't go extinct too long ago, only about 2 or 300 years ago. If you look at it, they could easily be brought back and do no harm. Plus, there is the Tasmanian Devil. I read an article on this in a magazine(The article was called Cloning:Who Would Carry the Gene and I'm not sure...

Re: Researchers aim to resurrect mammoth in five years

That's interesting. It is a fairly good idea, but still... Would one of the large killer cats be next? That could do more damage than a mammoth, they eat meat and are from the past, so... It could help, though. What if the gorilla goes extinct? Or cheetahs? We could bring back warrahs and Tasmanian ...

At least this has been found out and crossbreeding in zoos can be stopped.

Re: Uncommon Animal Facts

The first feces of a chinchilla is soft and immediately eaten. It then comes out hard the next time and is discarded. How they know the difference, though? I don't know that.

Re: Captive Wolf Live Q&A

Hi! I was wondering, do captive wolves truly bond with their keepers like dogs do? I've heard of close relationships, but is it a real 'I would do anything to be with you and never hurt you' situation? Thanks, eyheralde eyheralde- I know this is a common thought, and even a reason that some people ...

Re: White Tigers--Your opinion?

They are beautiful,I must admit.But I really prefer the dusted and marmalade if we get into odd colors.They are just variations of the natural orange,unlike the white. I believe that white tigers should only be bred with normally colored ones.Then there is less inbreeding and you can breed 2 cubs fr...

Re: Interpack Killing?

I think I remember a documentary about 42 and others killing her sister,but not about 42 being killed.
In the thing with 42 and her sis,it was also sort of a mystery.
But the breeding season stress and mange probably were causes in it.
