    Why Pests Are Dangerous for Your Home and Health?

    Whether they sting, smell, bite, or simply move around your house, when insects occupy your home, they can bring a slide of health risks with them. They can disrupt the foundation of your property by slowly destroying the structure. And they can also be as deadly as causing death due to severe allergic reactions. Along with insects, there are other mammals and rodents which conveniently find their way in your basement and walls.

    Activists Try to Spread Fake News About Marineland France

    Just three months after a radical animal rights extremist group employed Blackfish star John Hargrove to go after Marineland France with false claims about its killer whale family in a failed campaign, the group has returned to the mainstream media to once again, make another false claim about the whales. In this latest scheme, the group posted on its Facebook page that MarineLand France was “planning” on moving it’s four orcas - Inouk, Wikie, Moana and Keijo (all born at the French marine mammal facility) - to a facility somewhere in China.

    What to Expect When Adopting a Senior Dog

    When adopting a dog, many people tend to contact the local breeder and/or the local pet store to check on the available puppies. Others might go to the local animal shelter and wander around the kennels, looking for the cutest and smallest puppy they can find. Puppies are amazing, I give you that. But let’s face it: puppies are like toddlers, and you need the time to run after them and fix everything they break.

    Ways to Keep Your Pet Happy and Healthy

    Ways to Keep Your Pet Happy and Healthy

    Anyone who has ever owned a pet will say the same, but a pet is more than those three letters; they’re another living being, they’re a furry friend, and they are unquestionably a part of the family. Like any other friend or family member, you wish them a long, healthy life full of happiness and love. More than that though, taking care of them is a huge part of helping them live the life you know they deserve. To keep them happy and healthy starts with the little things like feeding them and making sure they get enough exercise, but it is also grooming, cuddling, hemp-based CBD products, spoiling them, and the number of other ways that set you apart as a premium pet owner.

    The first time I heard my mom was finally going to agree to get a dog was from my sister over text eight months after I moved from Arizona to California for school and two weeks before I was supposed to come home for the summer. After confronting my mother about it, she sent me the sweetest picture. It’s of her holding the most adorable three week old Great Pyrenees puppy. That dog looked like it belonged with my mom. My two sisters and I all agreed that it would be a crime against the universe if she didn’t take her home. They belonged together.

    A Bird Does Birds Things

    A Bird Does Birds Things

    What is a bird, what could its existence be within our special planet? This existential question might pop some ideas. That birds are special because they contribute by beauty. They help the environment when a bird comes to help plant reproduction. A bird is a bird, a bird is a bird doing bird things upon a tree or a snowy tundra. Birds are a peculiar set of animals with males being elegant for the female counterpart. With flashy colors and dances, they gladly whirl and twirl to reproduce for the species. Pretty pink hues march together on the flat land when born. A flamingo steps in an odd way, leading the way for the newborns. With their brownish coloring, their tiny feet walk ready to mimic the color of their elders. Greenish with blue vibrantly spread upon the eyes of humankind once they notice a peacock. Another male bird with a job of slaying the heart of a woman with beauty. Humans are different from birds when it comes to gender roles. As peculiar nature is, another existential question appears. A bird is a bird isn't that enough for humans. Well, as fantastic as this world is answers to the inner mechanisms are curious. A bird upon flight doesn't fear for its own life. A bird doesn't understand the human influence on habitats they prosper in. For the flight, a bird has learned about it from parents. Trial by fire, guarding the baby birds, but also handing them a future. Soaring the blue compliments each feather to the ones that are gifted with flight. Those unlucky make life upon the earth catching fish or whatever delicious something that is nearby. A penguin doesn't think of flight but survives within its environment leaking information on the young penguins. The ostrich proceeds to appear hilarious while they search for food. Land or air a bird can still be a bird laying fruitful eggs or placing them on dirt. An egg is a form of life growing ready to be pinkish, brownish, or blackish. Birds are beauty within a world of toxic gases and poisons. Negatives could be they shat on your car before work or attack you when agitated. Birds choose to be themselves without guessing otherwise. They fly above us singing bird songs of joyous freedom. That might be the reason for people wanting to take flight. Flying appears to be freedom without bounds holding someone down. A bird is a bird, birds do bird things and maybe humans could appreciate them often.

    9 Superpowers Your Cat Has

    When you get right down to brass tacks, it's sort of a miracle that humans made our way to the top of the food chain. Humans are squishy, maladaptive, prone to illogical behavior, and we tend to try and change the rest of the world to fit our beliefs rather than simply accepting what is, and how it works. Between opposable thumbs, fire, and guns, though, we've cemented our place at the head of the natural pecking order. We've even subjugated cats who, if we could simply irradiate one and receive some sort of DNA transfer through a bite, could turn us into predators the like of which hasn't been seen since the latest round of Republican debates.

    Should Some Vegans Not Own Pets?

    First off, I would like to start off by saying this isn't a knock on the veganism lifestyle. I actually admire the fact that people are sticking to what they believe in and acting on their beliefs by changing their lifestyle. When I first heard of the term vegan, all I knew about it was the dietary restrictions. Of course not all vegans are the same. Everyone has a different reason for being vegan but for the most part its about eating food with no animal products.

    Dogs are a very social animal, so it’s not surprising to see that the relationship with man grew stronger over the years. The closeness with a higher being like man means they look up to us for guidance, and learn what is expected of them in any situation. The onus is on us, to properly educate them on the right way to behave in society. Dog training courses and socialization training experts advise that the earlier you train your dog, the better and more willing they are to respond.

    Gaboon Viper

    Gaboon Viper

    The Gaboon Viper, or Bitis Gabonica, comes from the rainforests and savannas of Sub-Saharan Africa and is one of the fastest striking snakes. They also have the longest fangs of any venomous snakes with fangs that are 2 inches long. Gaboon Vipers are considered to produce the most venom out of all the venomous snakes; a single adult has enough venom to inject lethal doses into 30 individual men. These snakes have enormous venom glands which produces the lethal amount of venom. Although a bite from a Gaboon Viper is rare because of their unaggressive nature; the Gaboon Viper normally does not bite unless they are stepped on and sometimes even then they may not bite. These snakes, like most venomous snakes, can lash out when scared.
