How to Care for a Pet Gerbil

A gerbil makes a great “starter pet” for a child. Gerbils are friendly, fun to watch, quiet, and clean little guys whose cages don’t get smelly as fast as some animals’. Step 1: Set up home Keep your gerbil in a large wire cage or 20-gallon glass aquarium, away from direct sunlight and drafts. Tip Gerbils are very social animals, so why not get two? A pair of male gerbils will live together happily if they’re introduced at an early age. A pair of females will get along great. Male and female gerbils should live together only if you’re prepared for the consequences. Step 2: Line cage Line your gerbil’s cage with bedding—hay, aspen shavings, or recycled shredded paper are best. Gerbils love to dig and burrow, so make their bedding several inches deep. Tip Never line your gerbil’s cage with cedar or pine shavings; these contain chemicals that could harm your pet. Step 3: Feed gerbil Feed your gerbil 'gerbil mix,' which is specially formulated for his needs and is available at pet stores. As a treat, give your gerbil small amounts of fresh vegetables and greens. Try small pieces of lettuce, broccoli, and carrots. Tip Keep your pet’s home clean by removing uneaten fresh food daily. Step 4: Fill water bottle Every day, fill your gerbil’s bottle with fresh, clean water. Step 5: Use chew toys Gerbils’ teeth grow continuously throughout their lives, so they need hard stuff to chew on and wear their teeth down. Give your gerbil plenty of untreated wood to chew—or even the occasional dog biscuit. Step 6: Offer hiding places Gerbils love lots of hiding places to play in and to sleep in. Try shoeboxes, overturned flowerpots, and cardboard tubes. Step 7: Exercise your gerbil Put a large exercise wheel or two in your gerbil’s cage and make sure he can get at them easily. Even rodents need to work out! Step 8: Let the gerbil out Get your gerbil used to you by handling him every day and letting him run around in a safe, enclosed area. Tip Never pick your gerbil up by the tail. The skin is very delicate, and might slip right off! Step 9: Close the cage When you put your gerbil back in his cage, make sure the door is locked. The little guys love to escape! Step 10: Enjoy Enjoy yourself. With just a little care, gerbils return a ton of fun for you and your family. Did You Know? Gerbils communicate with each other by thumping their feet.

How to Take Care of Water Turtles

Take care of your reptile companions by keeping them happy with the right space, the right food, and regular maintenance. Step 1: Choose a suitable container Choose a suitable container for your turtles. You can use a glass aquarium, plastic container, stock watering tank, or an outdoor pond. Tip The combined surface area of all of your turtles' upper shells should not exceed 25 percent of the container's floor area. Keep in mind that turtles grow over their life spans, and that you may need to upgrade the container. Step 2: Find a suitable location Place the container in a location where the turtles will get 2 to 4 hours of sunlight each day. Step 3: Maintain a suitable temperature Maintain the container at a temperature that causes the turtles to eat well but doesn't cause them to be overactive. Turtles are most comfortable between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Step 4: Feed the turtles Feed the turtles in the water, 3 or 4 times a week. Most turtles eat three-quarters meat and one-quarter vegetable-matter. Step 5: Change the water frequently Change the water in the container frequently. Be sure to change it completely -- a partial change will not be adequate. Keep your turtles content, and you'll have a pet that will be with you for years to come. Did You Know? The life expectancy of the red-eared slider turtle -- a common pet aquatic turtle -- is 50 to 70 years.

7 Cool Facts about Bearded Dragons | Pet Reptiles

Let other people have cats and dogs! Jungle Bob is here to show you that owning a pet reptile or amphibian is not as crazy as you might think. In this video, he tells you seven cool facts about bearded dragons. When we think of the continent of Australia, we think of unusual animals right away, from kangaroos to platypuses to wallabies. They're all over there in Australia, it seems. But there are some that are not that unusual, just fantastic creatures. And one of them is the Pogona Vitticeps, the Bearded Dragon. There's a number of different species in Australia, but the popular one is the dragon you see in front of you here, that has dominated the pet world now for the last 20 to 25 years. In their native Australia, they're inquisitive creatures that easily inhabit areas where people are. They like to climb fence posts and look out to see what's going on. Males will dominate a territory and have multiple females as mates. And they're prolific breeders. They have up to 20 eggs at a time and they dominate the landscape they come from. They're quick when they have to be to escape predators. They're extremely fast runners. For the most part, they're kind of sit there and look out and see what's going on animals in the wild. They're very fun and animated to watch. They'll eat a variety of things from insects to greens to small pieces of meat, such as rodents. Bearded Dragons are largely protected now in their native Australia. They're no longer exported, which is very good. Thank you, Australia, for allowing us to have some of them. But because of their prolific nature, they are no longer hunted there and they're free to multiply and grow in Australia without any danger of being threatened by the pet trade or by confiscation. The Bearded Dragon gets his name, as you can see, the big male here is going to get a little territorial. First he gets up on his front limbs. And if he gets really agitated with the smaller one in front of him, he'll do two things. First, he'll start bobbing his head up and down to say, "I'm the biggest dragon in this area, so back off." And if that doesn't work, he actually throws out his throat. It turns black and he puffs it out. It looks like a big black beard. And that's where the animal gets his name. The Bearded Dragon will do that every time an animal is reintroduced into its area. If he wants to threaten it, he will throw that beard out. Sometimes in captivity they don't bother doing it anymore because they're so docile by nature and he knows this other dragon, so he's not really doing it at this moment. But two males together, one will dominate the other. He'll say, "I'm the biggest dragon here." If the other one is of equal size and equal temperament, they will fight. If not, the smaller one actually submits. And what they do is take their arm and they move it ever so slowly in a counter clockwise direction and the larger dragon will understand that that's like a person saying, "Don't hit me." He puts his hands up and says, "I don't want to fight." So, they work things out together in nature. In nature, of course, they can disappear and run in different areas. In a captive environment, they have to have that submissive language going back and forth between them in order to avoid fights in captivity. The Bearded Dragon, an Australian treasure for sure.

How to Handle a Tarantula | Pet Tarantulas

When it comes to handling a tarantula, the word that pops into my mind is gently. Right? Although they're these hideous creatures that everybody's afraid of, they are extremely fragile. Their exoskeleton is thin in certain areas, particularly in the abdomen. The legs, in particular, again, they're not pliable at all and the least little bit of pressure could actually break them. So gentle is the word. People sometimes say, 'Jungle Bob, you're so rough with your animals.' But when I'm picking up a tarantula like the Palomino Blond I know is not going to bite me, I simply cup the animal and put my hands underneath his legs. And this way he's cradled. I'm not smashing down on him. That would be a fatal event for the tarantula. So that's how you could easily pick up a tarantula like this. Even though his fangs are right against my fingers, I know he's not an aggressive species and have to worry about that. Certainly, if he's walking along, the best way to pick him up is to coax him. By putting your hand in front of him, give him a little nudge on his abdomen and he will just gently walk where you want him to go. That's more maneuvering than it is handling him for sure. And lastly, if a tarantula's got a good enough size it's fairly simple to, again, this is his abdomen and this is the head thorax, between the middle legs, like right between the two sides of his legs, you can gently grab his head thorax area and pick him up. That's not harming him any. You're in between legs two and three, if you will, on one side and two and three on the other side. And pick him up by grasping the body. That's the sturdiest part of the tarantula and that doesn't bother him at all. Now again, handling tarantulas. They're a species that like to flick their hairs off that I don't like to pick up at all. Because even though you can pick them up gently enough they're going to be kicking the legs on their abdomen. You're going to have a mess on your face. Tarantula hair all over the place. Why bother? I coax them along. I push them along. I usually don't pick them up in that method. Nor do I want to cup them because their hairs come off of there. Agonizingly irritating. So know your species, again. But if you want to pick him up, those are the methods to do so without harming the animal, which the most important thing. And without getting bitten, which is a pretty good idea too.

Do Tarantulas Make Good Pets? | Pet Tarantulas

Man 1: Tarantulas are probably one of the most easy going, easiest pets you could possibly keep. If you could get over the fact that it's a spider, and many people don't like that arachnophobia is rampant, but it's really more of an education situation and once you realize how simple a tarantula is to keep and how hand-able some of the species are it becomes a most excellent pet. For our society being in smaller and smaller homes and apartments, this is ideal because a ten gallon tank is pretty much a large enough tank for any type of tarantula to keep for a long period of time. If you get a nice female tarantula, you can get one that lives for twenty to twenty five years. A very low investment in your time, low investment to purchase, some of these animals run to thirty dollars for an animal of twenty five years you can get an awful lot of enjoyment out of them. So what's the best place to get them? What's the best type of tarantula? There are wild caught ones and they predominate in the pet world. There are captive hatched ones those are tarantulas that the tarantula mother was taken from the wild and had babies in captivity so their not totally wild not totally domesticated kind of in betweeners. And then there are tarantulas that come from breeders that have multi generation lived in this country are free of parasites free of diseases and have been handled if you will from birth. That's probably the best way to go. A captive hatched baby tarantula we call it a spiderling or a sling they are a teeny tiny things some times an eighth of an inch wide and are very very very fragile How do you keep them? Well you keep them in a very small container. We use to keep them in little test tube vials in the old days. Now there is a number of enclosures you can actually have to keep the spiderling in. You gotta keep the moist ones moist if they are from that environment and the humid ones humidified but you have to really find a place where you can find the proper size prey. That's the probably the most important thing to keep in the baby spider. Little spider, little tiny insects. Most pet stores don't carry things like that. You're going to have to figure that out. We have solutions for that at Jungle Bobs in the terms of spring tails, little tiny isopod type animals that a baby spider can handle. They grow very quickly and it's very awarding to see a spider to grow from a little sling all the way up to an adult tarantula. And if you're lucky and get a female you've got a companion for the next decade or two.

3 Best Tarantula Breeds for Beginners | Pet Tarantulas

People ask me all the time, "Jungle Bob, what's the best tarantula for my kid? He wants to get a really cool pet, and I want to get him a tarantula because it's a wow type of an animal to own." And it's a tough question to answer sometimes, because there's a lot of choices. But if I have to choose, here's the three I'd go for most of the time. Number one is the Chilean rose hair tarantula. And my criteria, being a father as well as a pet store owner, is that I really don't want anybody to get bitten. You never know what's going to happen from a tarantula bite, because people who are allergic to bee stings can have a hard time with it, and wasp stings. But tarantula venom isn't something that is deadly, so to speak, but if you are allergic to it you could go into anaphylactic shock if you are bitten by a tarantula and it doesn't do well in your system. So let's pick a species, therefore, for a beginner, that is reluctant to bite. Number one on my list, again, the rose hair tarantula. Number two, if you're looking for a desert species that is also very, very calm, would be the palomino blonde. This is an American tarantula found in the deserts of Texas and the Southwest, kind of plodding, kind of slow-moving, not the most exciting tarantula maybe, just like the rose hair. They don't do much, but they're not going to flee from you, and they're certainly not going to bite you for any special reason. They're very, very docile creatures to deal with. So I think that's a good criteria for a beginner. In terms of keeping, ten-gallon tank, desert, a little more humid environment when it comes to the rose hair. And they eat very, very infrequently. A couple of crickets once a week or some kind of an insect item, and they're good to go. All tarantulas need fresh water at all times. But you don't want to put a bowl in like you do for your cat or your dog. You want to do a shallow dish, and we usually put a sponge or some type of moisture holding instrument that the tarantula more can suck on than he will drink. You don't want to give them a bowl. They can potentially drown in a bowl of water. So that's pretty straightforward and pretty simple. If you're looking to turn that up a notch, you want to go to the very, very beginner animal to the next step, phase two maybe, let's look at arboreal tarantula like the pink toe from Trinidad. They are easily handled, easy to keep, small cage. Rather than a ten-gallon cage which is more vertical, you want one that's got some height because it's a tree-dwelling creature. The reason he's a secondary animal and a little more difficult to keep in these but still in the beginner class is because pink toes can be extremely quick. You can hold them, interface with them, but when he gets nervous, he darts, and he darts fast. So that makes him a little less of a beginner, but still in the beginner category for sure. The rose hair, the palomino blonde, or the pink toe would be my three readily available, inexpensive beginner tarantulas. Good luck.

How to Clean the Terrarium | Pet Tarantulas

Tarantulas are such popular pets because the maintenance on them is really, really minimal. Their defecation's so small. It's a little ball that accumulates at the bottom. And you pretty much can sift it, you pick it up, you can push it off to the corner, pick it up on a spoon. That's about it. Keeping a tarantula that's from a humidity loving environment, you got to mist it down a lot. Sometimes you mist it too much, the substrate can get a bit tarnished. It can get a bit moldy. You just spot pick it with your hand and take it out. Very rarely do you have to break down the whole tank like you would a fish tank. You just spot pick. You spot clean here and there and you're okay on the floor where the substrate is. Right? Pick out little things. Arboreal tarantulas are different. Arboreal tarantulas will climb on the glass. And occasionally they will do their business on the side of the glass and you'll get streaks of defecation. So you have to go in there and wash that out. If you're a good enough keeper you can just reach in and do it while the tarantula's in. I prefer to remove the tarantula in a plastic cup with a lid. Take the tarantula out. Put him on the side. Then you can take all the plants out, take the wood out, soak them in hot water and soap, rinse them out really good, disinfect everything, change the substrate bottom and do a quick overhaul. We're talking a very small tank it takes very little time. And I have tarantulas. Sometimes we don't have to overhaul the tank for six months before we have to worry about it. If you do your spot picking you're fine. So that's pretty straight forward. When you're using the cleaner, we don't use anything like Clorox. If you do you have to really rinse, rinse, rinse. I use a mild soap and water and then rinse off with a rag. If I take the whole tank down I bring it right to the sink and just rinse it all out. And that is a clean terrarium, ready to go. So just be a little diligent in taking care of the floor by taking out the defecation and a tarantula is one of the cleanest terrariums out there.

Arabian Horse, Horse Care and Horse Facts About The Arabian Horses

The Arabian, one of the oldest breed of horse, and is also the purest breed of horse. They have existed for at least 4,500 years. The Arabian horse is known to have been in existence since the time of Muhammad. It is also believed to have been developed by the nomadic Bedouin's in the desert belt of Africa, extending from the Atlantic Ocean to the Arabian Desert, for 2,500 years prior to that. As Islamic influence spread so did the Arabian horse, to be bred all over the Middle East and North Africa. With the Moorish invasion of Spain in the 7th century it was introduced to Europe. The Arabian horses have a beautiful and unique appearance. They are generally small in stature but readily recognized by their dished face and fine features. As they were bred in different parts of the world various breeds emerged including the Polish Arabian, the Shagya Arabian in Hungary, and the Egyptian Arabian. The Arabian blood contributed to the development of many other fine breeds as well, such as the Lipizzaner and the Thoroughbred, and it is still used to improve and refine other breeds. In early times they were renowned for their incredible endurance and courage. Today Arabians are known for their "people-oriented" nature and loving disposition, which makes them great pleasure horses and pets. They are also known to be very intelligent. They are quick to learn and willing to please.

Friesian horse - Video Learning - WizScience.com

The "Friesian" is a horse breed originating in Friesland, in the Netherlands. Although the breed's conformation resembles that of a light draft horse, Friesians are graceful and nimble for their size. It is believed that during the Middle Ages, ancestors of Friesian horses were in great demand as war horses throughout continental Europe. Through the Early Middle Ages and High Middle Ages, their size enabled them to carry a knight in armor. In the Late Middle Ages, heavier, draft type animals were needed. Though the breed nearly became extinct on more than one occasion, the modern day Friesian horse is growing in numbers and popularity, used both in harness and under saddle. Most recently, the breed is being introduced to the field of dressage. In English, the word indicating origin from the Friesland region is typically spelled "Frisian". However, the alternative spelling with an "e" is used for Holstein Friesian cattle. During much of the history of the "Friesch Paarden Stamboek" breed registry, most breeders of the horses also were breeders of dairy cattle and the same spelling was also used for both animals, particularly by English-language breeding societies and registries. The Friesian breed is most often recognized by its black coat color, however, color alone is not the only distinguishing characteristic; Friesians are occasionally chestnut as some bloodlines do carry the "red" gene. Friesians rarely have white markings of any kind; most registries allow only a small star on the forehead for purebred registration. To be accepted as breeding stock by the FPS studbook , a stallion must pass a rigorous approval process.

Read Out Loud | Rocco Staino Reads WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?

http://kidlit.tv KidLit TV’s Read Out Loud series is perfect for parents, teachers, and librarians. Use these readings for nap time, story time, bedtime … anytime! StoryMakers host Rocco Staino isn't only great at interviewing award-winning kid lit creators. He's great at reading books aloud too! Don't let the suit and bowtie fool you; Rocco can get pretty silly, especially when he's reading Dr. Seuss's What Pet Should I Get? What Pet Should I Get? was once buried treasure. In late 2013, Seuss's wife Audrey and his assistant Claudia Prescott found an incomplete story titled, The Pet Shop, with 16 drawings and text. The story followed a brother and sister as they explored their options for purchasing a pet. If the duo from What Pet Should I Get? seem familiar it's because you've seen Jay and Kay in Dr. Seuss's One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Dr. Seuss's​ What Pet Should I Get? was posthumously published in 2015. Written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss Published by Random House Books for Young Readers This previously never-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss about making up one's mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure. What happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can't choose just one. The tale captures a classic childhood moment, choosing a pet and uses it to illuminate a life lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it. Told in Dr. Seuss's signature rhyming style, this is a must-have for Seuss fans and book collectors, and a perfect choice for the holidays, birthdays, and happy occasions of all kinds. An Editor's Note at the end discusses Dr. Seuss's pets, his creative process, and the discovery of the manuscript and illustrations for What Pet Should I Get?

Lesson 5: Media have social and political implications

Level: Grade 6-8 Author: MediaSmarts has partnered with Concerned Children’s Advertisers to develop a suite of videos on each of the media literacy key concepts. Duration: 45-90 minutes Overview In this lesson, students watch a video introducing the media literacy key concept that media have social and political implications. They discuss the idea of explicit messages in media products and then, after watching the video “It’s Not Easy Being Green,” discuss the idea that media products may have less obvious implicit messages. Students apply this analysis to another media product familiar to the class and then, in an optional final task, identify how a favourite media product has influenced them.
