I know it is rare but I have read isolated reports of two males being kept in huge tanks interesting right another myth is a well cared for Betta lives 2-3 years actually a well cared for Betta lives 6-8 years and even read of people having there's for 10 years with varied diet good excerise like net chasing and decor.

Yeah..that was one of the most absurd stories I heard. I was looking at the ball pythons in our store and a man walked up and asked if the two were from the same snake. I asked what he meant and he said that's how he heard snakes reproduce.

WELP.

- a raw beef diet is good for a dogs digestive system. (my Vet told me this!)

- if a betta has a filter, it only needs a water change once a month

- some dogs are completely hypo-allergenic

-milk is a good treat for cats

- hermit crabs dont require much maitenance, space, or equipment

- small dogs dont need to be walked

5G - 1 betta: orange dalmatian VT male "Ty"
29G - 1 orange fantail goldfish "Goldeen"

-Red claw (fiddler) crabs can live in an aquarium without land. >_<

While they do need some amount of water to successfully molt and whatnot, fiddlers need a space to get out of the water once and a while and rest if they don't want to be submerged.

But that is extraordinarily rare, like a 9 foot human. Even a boa over ten feet is rare to be honest. Unless we are talking about the dinosaur snake, the titanoboa, which was a different snake entirely.

And the laying out measuring you thing...There are so many things wrong with that. A snake can't eat something as long as it's body is. So you can't be eaten by a six foot snake. It wouldn't try to measure out to see if it was as long as you so it could eat you..And what animal in the wild would ever just wait patiently as a snake measured itself out to eat it... It's just downright silly!
I didnt make the research, scientists did

What exactly are you talking about? "Huge" can mean different things to different people. Some people will tell you my 3 foot ball python is huge, and others will tell you a 27 foot reticulated python is huge.

You can go near it and measure it if you need specifics ;).

Its been years and years (more than a decade i think) since i read a textbook about their behavior, i wanted to adopt one at a time so i got big on books about them. When i learned the size they get i dropped the idea.

If you give me some time (5 days) i might be able to dig out the book and give more details.
