Air purifiers for pet hotel

Reddit Animals

Hi all. I’m in the process of designing a pet hotel in Portugal and wanted to ask whether anyone knows any good air purifiers? I’ve been doing some extensive research but it’s always best to hear from people that actually use and have them for pets. The hotel space is going to be about 1400sq ft (excluding the external area) with 6 1.5m by 3m dog rooms, 7 1.5m by 1m cat rooms and 2 2m by 2m executive cat rooms (for more than 1 cat).

A Bee-eater Summer?

10,000 Birds

A couple of years ago my friend Martin Tickler called me late on a grey Sunday afternoon. “You won’t believe this, David, but there’s a flock of nine Bee-eaters sitting on the wires in the field behind my house.” Bee-eaters are one of the most colourful, and beautiful, of all European birds, but they are very scarce visitors to Britain. The prospect of seeing nine in my home county of Suffolk was irresistible.

How do vipers avoid ants?

Reddit Animals

I’m out camping in the woods this spring and saw plenty of vipers before the ants woke up. Now they’re nowhere to be seen. I remember reading that vipers are pretty much defenseless vs forest ants. But the ants literally cover the forest floor right now. So where have the snakes gone to avoid them? Red forest ants (Formica rufa) and adders (Vipera berus) are the animals in question.

Do birds say thank you?

Reddit Animals

I was watching tv in my living room when I heard a loud bang on my window. When I looked over I saw a small dark colored bird falling onto the patio outside. It was bleeding and I thought it would die, but after putting it in a box with airholes and paper towels as cushions, it eventually regained its strength and flew away. About 15 minutes later, I heard a variety of weird chirping sounds from the tree above my car, all coming from one bird in that tree.

What could have happened to this bird?

Reddit Animals

I was walking my dog today when I found a dead pigeon (correct me if I’m wrong). It had no apparent bruises or wounds other than the fact that there was obviously some blood that had come from the beak. I’m just wondering what could’ve happened to make the bird bleed from its mouth and die with no larger bruises or wounds?

Question for anyone

Reddit Animals

I’m not sure this will be allowed, but here goes. I live in the country, spend a lot of time outdoors. A few minutes ago, I heard an odd clicking noise, looked around, and a ROBIN was chasing a rabbit! The robin was clicking and jumping a few feet on the ground over the rabbit’s back, then it would fly to catch up to it. The rabbit hopped down the ravine to the woods, so I saw the event for only seconds.

Is it okay for my dog to run a 5k with me 3-5 times per week?

Reddit Animals

As the title says. Going to attach a picture so you can see his stature/fur/snout etc. We went a 5k today (I’m not fit I do a 5k in like 33 minutes mixing between running and walking) and he was struggling a little. He’s usually bouncing off the walls full of energy after a 5k walk but around half way through started dragging behind. He preferred running on the grass beside the pavement which I of course let him but even that didn’t seem to make him want to run towards the end.

Advice about splitting dogs apart after breakup

What do you think? For context I also am taking my cat so it would be a cat and one dog with me, and one dog with him.

Obviously this depends on how you weight different criteria, but I'm thinking of animals that have a good combination of many different traits: agility, sprint speed, endurance, fighting ability, jumping ability, ability to swim. I'll submit the wild horse as a good candidate given this combination of features.

Why are chimpanzees catching SIV from other monkey prey they eat?

Chimpanzees are known to have most likely been the main cause of HIV virus in humans.My question is maybe a bit to broad, but what i want to know is, why would an animal species continually consume something unhealthy? Chimpanzees ate monkey species that had viruses they were not immune to.What is mostly the case with animals, is that they are always picky and by their own instincts determine what to and not to consume.Insects and worms will never touch a GMO fruit or food, but only natural, unp

Am I being paranoid

Reddit Animals

I know this sounds stupid , but I get really paranoid about stuff like this. So I was playing with a new dog and I didn’t notice I had a minor cut on the tip of my finger that the dog maybe accidentally licked. Also while playing one of the dog’s teeth gave me a very small scratch on one of my fingers. I don’t really know much about the dog’s owners or if they keep up with vaccinations , but am I crazy for thinking I can get a rabies or something ?
