Hey everyone, I just got back to from the vet. Guapo has Lyme disease.
From what I recall, I believe he has had it for quite some time. He will be on month course of treatment and we will see with another blood test how it goes. Has anyone here had a dog with
Lyme disease before? Any special diets or things you can recommend to help I would greatly appreciate as I have been having a hard time finding the right info online and even my vet has never seen a dog with it before so she didn't know exactly what advice to
The Chinese Water Deer has movable teeth!
The tusks are loosely rooted in the socket.
A band of tissue within the gum (red}, loops around the tooth at its base, and
pulls it forward into combat position.
Tasmanian devils devastate penguin population on Australian island
A project to preserve endangered Tasmanian devils on a small island has backfired after the predators killed seabirds in large numbers, a conservation group says.
small number of devils were shipped to Maria Island east of Tasmania, Australia, in 2012.
The move aimed to protect the mammals from a deadly facial cancer that had driven them towards extinction.
The devils have recovered since, but the island project has come at a cost.
The introduction of the devils to the island has had "a catastrophic impact on one or more bird species', according to BirdLife Tasmania, a local conservation organisation.
Citing a government survey, BirdLife Tasmania said a population of little penguins that numbered 3,000 breeding pairs in 2012 had disappeared from the island.
"Losing 3,000 pairs of penguins from an island that is a national park that should be a refuge for this species basically is a major blow," said Dr Eric Woehler, a researcher for the group.
Dr Woehler said the outcome was no surprise given what research shows about the introduction of mammals to oceanic islands.
In 2011, a report by the Tasmanian Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and
Environment suggested the introduction of devils would have "a negative impact on little penguin and shearwater colonies on Maria Island'.
Last year, a paper published in the Biological Conservation journal said the devils had
"eliminated" a colony of shearwater, a species of sea bird.
"it's very clear that the devils have had a catastrophic ecological impact on the bird fauna on
Maria Island," Dr Woehler said.
Hello everyone. This is George. George is an Xbox 360 controller that has been with me for over 10 years now. He has been my one loyal controller and has been my daily gamepad that I used everyday. Today I tried to turn him on, and the green light stopped flashing. I tried with different batteries, same result. It has dawned to me that George's duty has been served and is no longer operational. I just wanna take this moment to thank him, for being there everytime I raged. Thank you
George, for helping me create so many memories with different games and people. May you be with your own kind now.
