Callum Lake, a boy diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, finds dinosaurs intriguing. Because of this interest, his mom got him a pet gecko, reports Stuart Greer of Macclesfield Express.
The kid’s condition makes the social aspects of his life difficult to cope with. Having a pet lizard has helped develop his ability to speak and make friends. When he is feeling anxious, the animal offers a distraction, away from his emotions.
Callum states that one of his favorite things to do with Spike (the gecko), is feeding it in the morning.
Having a pet snake can be very exciting. It is recommended to do plenty of research prior to purchasing a snake as a pet, as mentioned in an article from Gloucester Times.
Not all snakes are created equal. Cornsnakes, ball pythons and kingsnakes make better pets for beginners; while boa constrictors and carpet pythons are suitable for experts. There are several requirements to adhere to when taking care of a snake. A proper diet and comfortable environment should be considered for the well-being of the animal.
Reptiles in general carry a number of bacteria; therefore, hygiene is essential when handling the pet. Contrary to popular belief, snakebites are not as common as people think. More humans die from dog bites each year compared to pet snakes.
How do you keep a pet hamster entertained? By turning its cage into a mini ninja house.
A lucky pet hamster from Japan was blessed with a fully functional ninja house. The replica even includes escape routes and hidden platforms. Tea sets, tables and cabinets all set the mood of a real working headquarters for hamster ninjas. The pet owner designed the makeshift home and took the time to make sure the place is cozy as well.
The same furry animal appears in another video where it eats a baby corn on a cob in an aggressive fashion.
If pets could talk, what would they say? More specifically, what does a guinea pig have to say about being a pet? Pets Add Life interviewed a guinea pig to find out.
The guinea pig participant spoke incredibly fast throughout the interview. It mentioned that a turtle would make a suitable companion because it is encased in a shell. Guinea pigs are fond of numbers, as counting is one of its hobbies. Unfortunately, it can only count up to the number three.
The interviewee also likes to chew on toilet paper, but has no one to blame it on.
A fast talking guinea pig answers questions about daily life, being a pet and wanting a turtle as a friend.
Once the bond is set, nothing can separate an individual from his or her pet. For Jordan Gregory, all he thinks about is his pet Guinea pig.
Jordan left his home to go to college. Unfortunately, he had to leave his pet Guinea pig behind as well. His teammates are confused about his relationship with his pet, but find it reassuring that the bond keeps Jordan motivated.
Jordan mentioned that before he parts with his Guinea pig, he spoils her with carrots. The two will soon be reunited, when Jordan returns home for vacation.
Guinea pigs are prone to suffer from loneliness when spending too much time in a cage. There are several ways to keep a guinea pig entertained, reports Shannon Cauthen of Small Animal Channel.
Toys are a great way to help guinea pigs stay active. Empty toilet roll tubes, cardboard boxes and brown paper bags with timothy hay are examples of items that guinea pigs enjoy. When in doubt, it is recommended to purchase toys from a pet store that are specifically made for the furry pet.
For added variety, it is also advisable to change the toys on a regular basis to prevent the Guinea pig from getting bored.
Perhaps, he mistakenly believes it is the entrance to his home or a tunnel leading to a bounty of food. Regardless, a chubby, determined hamster continually attempts to fit into a cardboard tube. It is readily apparent (except to the hamster) that he needs a large tube or to go on a diet. Nonetheless, his persistence makes for an amusing video.
Without the use of mirrors or even a magical wand, a little “hamster Houdini” named Smoke performs an amazing magical trick. Watch the food disappear quicker than you can say “abracadabra!”
Not knowing when his next dining experience will be, the adorable hamster takes full advantage of the carrot and sunflower seed banquet laid before him. While it is not so amazing that the hamster takes a liking to carrots and sunflower seeds, it is incredible the amount of food the little guy is able to stuff in his checks. He stretches the limits (and his cheeks) as to how much he can make disappear.
