Allowed already contain not only because of their usefulness. Many of the Pets we have sheltered only for their beauty and charm. In addition, the breeders bring a lot of showy rocks to make our life more beautiful.
However, sometimes they are clearly behind the curve, and new hybrids cause rather a feeling of disgust than affection.
We introduce you to seven animals of different breeds, whose appearance was very controversial.
Budapest Mongolian Thurman
This breed of pigeons outwardly looks like a fish-telescope or amphibian. Especially creepy look unfledged Chicks are Budapest tumblers. However, these birds acquired a reputation of being great flyers and are highly appreciated among professionals.
For those who are crazy about cats, but at the same time likes to amuse himself a vampire movie, brought a special breed of werewolves. This breed is called Lika (Lykoi) and resembles an intermediate link of evolution, in which cats are descended from bats.
Likoi and although in appearance seem to be sick and bald, actually it’s quite healthy animals. However, to get offspring from such drakulat unlikely to succeed, because the breed is still young and is genetically unstable. Continue reading
Rotifers (Rotatoria) — the smallest of multicellular animals, together with the ciliates are part of the so-called “living dust”. Their sizes vary from 0.04 to 2 mm. Its name rotifers received for the presence of a rotary machine consisting of two beaters of the cilia on the anterior part of the body. The movement of the cilia creates a whirlpool through which small food organisms are sent to the mouth. Simultaneously with this apparatus, many forms of rotifers is swimming. Rotifers are less mobile than the infusoria, which makes them more desirable starter feed for larvae of the vast majority of fish. Small size, high proliferation rate, as well as the possibility of sustaining a culture in pure form do rotifers are very easy targets for rearing of juvenile fishes. The most commonly cultivated of the saltwater rotifer Brachionus plicatilis, because its the easiest to maintain in pure culture. This small rotifers — 100— 300 microns. The average weight of 1 million rotifers — 1.5 g Eat phytoplankton, bacteria, yeast. Males live for 2-3 days, females up to 2 weeks. Sexually Mature in 1-1. 5 days. Actionsee females reproduce by parthenogenesis, laying (2N) eggs. Misticheskie — give eggs, of which face males (N), or participate in pairing, putting resting (2N) eggs. The eggs are heavier than water. Rotifers coltivirus capacity 3-100 l, reaching a density of 100-300 individuals per 1 ml. Desirable very weak purge and side lighting. Culture enters stationary strength for 5-7 days.
The technology is extremely simple: take a piece of yeast the size of a large pea and fingers rubbed at the Bank of rotifers. Once the water clears up (for me it’s usually 2-3 day) add the next portion. I feed her fresh yeast or dry. Rotifer does not like strong aeration, if we use a very weak blow. I don’t use at all, then all culture is concentrated in the upper layer. The system itself is organized in the following way: on the windowsill is a three-liter Continue reading
In nature only a few survive to extreme old age, due to objective reasons.
But even in captivity, the turtles on the strength make it to the middle of that age, as if completely absent of external hazards. How long can a slider turtle live in a terrarium? How can I prolong their life?
How to determine the age of red-turtle?
Sell slider turtles at an early age, when the carapace reaches a length of not more than 7 cm At the time of purchase it is better to give preference to younger ones because they are easier to survive, and will live longer.
Over the years, the turtle can grow up to 30 cm . that will require a larger terrarium and resettlement of a few turtles from each other. Therefore it is better to know in advance what the potential growth is of this or that individual and which “house” it is better to buy.
To determine the age in two ways:
By measuring the length of the shell, taking into account the annual growth of a turtle on 2-3 cm; Continue reading
