Rats - Rats as Pets - Pet Rat

Rats make sweet pets. They are excellent beginner pets for children. Especially, kids during the stage where they need a trusted friend. Young children should be supervised around the rat. Rats are a good choice as a pet if you live in an apartment where you can't have a dog, cat, or even a skunk. Have you had a pet rat? Learn about the pet rat and how to care for rats as pets.

View the Beauty of Birth from a Safe Distance

One other thing we have found the Panasonic Network Camera useful, is watching an animal’s birthing process or after an injury recovery process. The images are clear it works great with cable broadband. A friend bought one and had a bit of a setup problem for internet viewing with DSL. This is one of Panasonic’s strong points is customer service. They had it figured out in no time. There has been no problem with setup on any of our computers. Between the camera, the computer, and router, everything has setup by its self. So far, every web browser we have tried has worked fine. My husband likes Foxfire and he had no problem at all setting the camera up. If you have any setup problem call Panasonic. Another feature I use and love is the eight shooting positions that can be set up in advance and you can use your cell phone or PDA to control the camera’s movements. The Panasonic Network Camera has changed our lives to the better. Plus, my friend that breeds parrots, is going to set up a camera during the hatching process and also let me watch him hand feed the bird. At that time, we can get the images up on Exotic Pets BellaOnline’s, so that we can all enjoy the miracle. Read the full review! Safety and Miracles - Panasonic Network Camera

Earth Day - How Have Humans Impacted the Earth?

Do you have any idea how close we are to our own destruction? We may survive, at least the people willing to work extremely hard, don’t mind extreme discomfort, because we won’t be surviving with oil, or the automobile, tractors, and the zillion of other things that comes from oil; petroleum products. Not just creature comforts would be gone, but we would be back to living with extreme hardships. The seven billion people on earth won’t all survive, in fact only a very small percentage. Go to your kitchen and open just one cupboard. I will do the same. I opened the cupboard that has rice, wheat, cereals, and other like products. Let’s think about the simple product wheat, how much oil did it take to get that wheat into our cupboard? Also, what is the product in cardboard or plastic? Cardboard is made from trees, and uses oil, plastic is made from oil. First of all, the farmer gets up in the morning, puts on his or her clothing (takes oil to make and transport clothing), he or she eats breakfast (takes oil to produce and transport his breakfast). He then heads to his pickup truck, which is filled with petroleum. Each tire is made from oil; a car tire takes seven gallons, more for a pickup truck. Then you add the fossil fuel it takes to transport the tires, transport all the other materials that go into a tire. Each tire ends up using a barrel of oil; how many gallons of oil in a barrel - 42 gallons. Look at plastic parts, all plastic parts are made from fossil fuels. He stops at the barn to get his tractor. Look at those huge tires! How much petroleum product could be in those massive tires? Again, many other components on the tractor made from oil. He stops and fills up the tank with fuel, obviously from oil. Earth Day - How Have Humans Impacted the Earth?

Animal Stories - Free Range or Caged - Exotic Pets

Should an exotic pet be allowed to roam free or should it be caged? What is your opinion. I think that rats should fly, raccoon's shouldn't called the police, skunks do climb contrary to popular belief and rabbits just don't fluff well in the dryer. Read and tell you story or opinions!

Mongoose - Mongoose as a Pet

They are mainly known for their ability to kill snakes. This ability became widely known through the short story Rikki-Tikki-Tavi from the Jungle Book written by British Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling in 1894. The story was also made into a short television cartoon show for children and made into a movie. The gray mongoose was the subject behind the Rikki-Tikki-Tavi story.


The mongoose looks like a weasel or ferret but is not related to these species of the mustelid family. Nor are mongooses part of the mustelid family. The meerkat is part of the mongoose family. The mongoose family is Herpestidae. Herpestidae are divided into two subclasses Herpestinae and Galidiinae.

The mongooses from Madagascar are from the subfamily Galidiinae. The rest of the mongoose genus are of the subclass Herpestinae and are from Southern Europe to Asia and many places in-between.
