Yeah, I had a cat who wanted me to give him milk when I was getting something out of the fridge. I didn't give him any. But I reached down to pet him and he maniacally tore into my arm in a rage. I was bleeding like crazy, still got scars from it.

Would hate to imagine something like that happening if you had a bigger cat like what tiddy posted.

@gigantes you're right cheetahs are bigger on average...servals can get really big though...











they can get large enough to where they resemble a cheetah...they are just very slender cats so they don't weigh much

well, cheetahs are bigger, period. about 3-4x the weight and around 2x the length. using the word "average" is very misleading. it's not even close on average.


meh sorry i'm kind of an animal nut.

nothing...I looked into pet caracals as well but IIRC they are even more difficult and can not be trained to use a litter box, and their piss smells ungodly awful from what I read...

I had a salt water coral tank for a around 5 years, and those are fckin awesome although expensive and a lot of work. I ended up giving it all away to a fish store because I was just burnt out on taking care of it. I want to do that again though down the road, and I plan on getting an octopus tank this time which has to be specially made because octopus are so genius at escaping and are often found on the floor next to the tank of owners who don't know better.

ah, that's awesome. too bad the rep system is down.

i used to keep a medium salt water tank, and know what you mean.

i love molluscs / cephalopods, so the octopus idea sounds really cool. imagine all the little intelligence experiments you could run, as well as just watching their daily tricks and stuff...

Not an octopus but a squid has a story about getting out of the tank i love. In an aquarium, there was a person who cleaned the tank and one day the squid got too close and the guy hit it with the pole. The squid went after the guy and he actually had to be saved by another diver.

Squid got moved to another smaller tank sometime a few years later. More than 10 years after the initial incident the person returned to the aquarium and walked by the tank, where the squid was on the floor, trying to get at the person. He got out of the tank somehow to attack his enemy he remembered.

Those things fascinate me.
