Excuse my ignorance, but is fur production worse for animals than meat production? I would have thought that there would be similar regulations for the two.

Not quite the same - Denmark incidentally is number one in Europe when it comes to fur https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kopenhagen_Fur.
Slaughtering is different in the fur industry - gassing, electrocution, poisoning or anyway to preserve the pelts but kill the animal. It's not usually quick or "humane".

Such a beautiful animal, if you give her/him a few more carrots or apples for me I won't mind. :)

Fancy 2-tone squirrel

31 May 2018 19:16

We've got a 2-tone squirrel in our area - I don't recall ever seeing one like it before. Any idea about how common they are?

See photo here - http://www.pronetisp.net/~jkosta/2_Tone_Squirrel_cropped.jpg

Sorry I couldn't get a better picture ...

Hmmm... never seen one of these before, it almost looks like a bunny with a squirrel tail.

It might just be some kind of a hybrid, maybe someone else here might know?

Looks pretty squirrely to me.











And I don't think a squirrel-bunny hybrid is actually biologically possible.

I wasn't really suggesting a bunny could breed with a squirrel biologically, I merely said the picture looked like a bunny with a squirrel tail. Apologies if I wasn't being clear enough, as we all know this can happen very easily over the interwebs.

Right, moving on to some other type of animal now...

I've been wanting to clean out my little "Zen" pond in the back of the yard for a while now because the water is just filthy, however, this rather large frog keeps on preventing me from doing it. Anyone know what kind of frog this is and what her/his natural "living habit" is?

Don't let him give you a 'line' about getting kissed !

Maybe just mention to him about his large and tasty looking legs ...

Probably a good thing squirrels and bunnies can't interbreed. Coz that would be too cute!

Are you a-livin' in a ghost town?

That's Madness! Or at least one of the specials. I guess it is caught up in the rat race. It won't be a major news story on my radio, more of a three minute hero.

I've got a message for you, Rudy: perhaps it can't stand up for falling down, or maybe it had too much too young.

I don't want you to feel too much pressure, but on the other hand don't do nothing.

If you decide to name it after a South African president, please don't keep it as a pet, or you will face calls to free Nelson Mandela.

Well, here he is again, staring at me... he makes the funniest sound when he's out of the water and you walk up on him, he'll go "baah!", and then ploop, back into the water he jumps.

He seems to reside in the pond year-round, so that is why I haven't been able to clean it. I don't want to disturb his residence.
