    Yeah I know, and don't get me started on penguins

    Lol I think we could say that about a lot of animals really...

    I think the only animals that should be allowed to travel away from their natural habitat are smaller sea animals, because the temperature of the water can be adjusted to their normal living conditions.

    It doesn't work for bigger sea animals like Dolphins....

    It makes me sad because I wonder about how they get the bigger animals over hear, I'm sure they are given drugs to make the more manageable for the capture and journey, and that is just sad

    They are gorgeous aren't they?

    Have you seen this?



    Omg SOOO CUTE! Aw he wanted a cuddle so much :giggle::giggle:

    I have always had a fear of Rottweilers because my old neighbours used to have one, and when I went around (when I was young) they would always lock the garden door. I think it just caused me to associate feelings of fear with them. I'm sure your Rottweiler was lovely though
    That video is aDorABLE! He was so desperate :laugh: — yeah, a lot of people have that predisposed fear thing with Rottweilers, which is understandable I guess they can look pretty fierce! But she was the kindest animal I ever knew, she died last year unfortunately but she had this thing where… if one of our cats were distressed she'd put them in her bed and cuddle with them all night it was so cute

    I'm sorry to hear that May she forever rest in peace.

    Put them in her bed and cuddle them all night? That is just adorable!!! :heart::cry2:

    I've never had a cat or a dog but I did have baby parrots a couple of years ago, they were gorgeous. We put them in the garden and they flew away after a little while, but they were just so adorable It was a boy and a girl (we called the boy 'Hari' and the girl 'bo'...so....'Haribo' ).

    I can't wait to have my own place one day so that I can get a dog or a cat, maybe even a parrot (African Grey parrot because they are adorable)

    just pointing out that there are more tigers kept in basements as pets in america than the total population in the wild..

    don't mean to be negative and i adore you OP but seriously these are wild animals that need protecting in their natural environment. Same with slow lorises, they are dying out because people want them as cute pets and rip their teeth out

    :/

    Wild animals really ought to be in the wild. Especially large ones. Particularly large predators
