Re: 86 Percent of Species Still Unknown

That's certainly a large number of species--I don't expect to see half of them in my lifetime. However, I believe it's fairly reasonable. There are many places on Earth we have yet to explore fully, and many things left undiscovered. The world is a vast thing, and I doubt that we'll ever uncover th...

Re: The Circus - Fun for Humans, Abuse for Animals

I think circuses are cruel. What bothers me most is that the circus owners will breed a female elephant over and over again. Pregnancy for an elephant is something like 22 months. Imagine holding like 30 pounds for 22 months and then doing it again really soon after. The baby elephants aren't exactl...

Re: Uncommon Animal Facts

Strange facts I found, not sure if they are all true or not, but the last one is definately hilarious. A c.ockroach can live several weeks with its head cut off - it dies from starvation! A crocodile always grows new teeth to replace the old teeth! A crocodile cannot stick its tongue out. A group o...

Re: Lions Being Poisoned in Africa

Before you mentioned this, I have never even heard of lion poisoning but it is a very sad situation. Perhaps if we were all poor farmers in Kenya we would see it differently but in the end, nobody's going to win from this. Lion usually pick off the weak cattle that could pass on their bad genes. Onc...

Re: Rhino poachers

It's really a shame that this has happened. Some traditional Chinese medicines call for rhino horns. Those poor rhinos :( This is a very interesting topic, by the way! ^^

Re: Wolves as Pets: Your Opinions.

Wolves were just not made to be with humans. They like to do things by themselves. There was a study done where a piece of meat was stuck inside a cage. First, the dog went and tried to get in out but couldn't It started whimpering to the person to let get it out. When the wolf did this is tried for...

Re: Have you ever raised a wild animal?

At least once annually, a bird hits our widows e.o We take care of them for a day and then give them to a wildlife refuge. Animals were not meant to be in the hands of people. They think people are all nice and then someone shoots them. You shouldn't feed wild animals because then they think people ...

Re: What wildlife have you seen recently?

I saw a deer with a bloody leg twisted all the way up. The poor thing was in pain so we called the police to take it out of its misery. I see squirrels, skunks, possums, squirrels, racoons, deer, bunnies, turkeys, black bears, squirrels, guinea hens, bald eagles, squirrels, rarely a wolf or coyote, ...

Re: What have -YOU- done to help animals?

I have helped animals in many ways! First of all I donate %40 of all the money I earn for doing chores to a local greyhound kennel. I also help to give homeless dogs a sense of family by feeding them and playing with them until they find a proper home! I have done a cupcake stand to donate all the m...

Re: Wolf Books you are Writing

What mynameisfaolon said about realistic stuff being boring I would have to disagree! I think that everyday life is amazing but very few, if any, people can see it! There is more than you can fit in your mind about wolves and all the plots you could think of! As far as the fantasy stuff I think it s...

Re: Don't kill Spiders!!

Spiders are so cute! If you look at them up close they have these big shiny eyes and they are all fluffy! The eat annoying bugs like mosquitoes and flies. Imagine where we would be without spiders! Before you kill something that is ACTUALLY helping you think about the poor thing first!
