Hmm.. Not totally sure... Well pigs and goats are herbivores, I think survival is pretty much covered for them. Cats can become feral, but they only survive in our cities from garbage, with the rare exception.
Animals are all different- for example it will take a dog pack several generations to revert to pariah state. It's quite fascinating, a pack of any group of dogs, will pretty quickly revert to a medium sized, light brown animal.

Shaina I wouldn't do it. By that age the meat is really nasty. We had old hen, she was about 3 years, I couldn't even chew the meat. Chickens usually slaughter at 2-3 months. The pigs we buy are usually only a few months old as well.

OK, that explains everything! Most vets are a little and that's not an insult, I love vets but

Lol, working with them, yes they are. Though honestly I find the techs are little more nutty.
I work with 2 vets though- one is all cheery, does his surgeries fast (but very well mind you). The other is slower and takes her time, she actually sits down to do surgery. She also does holistics, herbal medicine, acupuncture, and chiropractic stuff for animals. They're both so different but I couldn't tell you which one was better. o-o

Techs are like hospital nurses, they think they know more than the doctors

I don't like birds. I saw the Hitchcock movie and now they freak me out.

Okay seriously though, parrots freak me the heck out. Those huge powerful beaks are just intimidating.

Cockatoos are noisy, annoying, dirty and can hurt you.

They can also be the sweetest, funniest, loveiest things but only about 10% of the time

Large birds belong in the wild.

Honestly I blame the craziness on the number of animals you gotta put down for no reason other than money. It's the start of the second week and we've already euthanized a dog and bird that could have been saved. :/

Big parrots scare me, but that's why I want to learn more about them. Toucans are probably the best large bird, extremely lovable of everyone, not just one person like most parrots. Plus, they can't even break the skin with those huge beaks. Among other things.

I used to really want one, until I start researching more. Seems like they are pretty loud and can be too high energetic. I probably won't be able to provide a big enough space for them to be happy :\ I'll just stay with my adorable eskimo dog & enjoy pic of fennec fox on internet :)

I <3 bettafishes!



Wouldn't it be awesome to breed betta for your main job? :)

Good on ya for that choice.
They do look like they'd be pretty hyper. And definitely not child safe.
