Yet another land snail, though a different species, found in our basement.

Stanley, an albino burmese python. Though gentle natured and very beautiful, Burmese pythons can grow to 15-20ft in length, require massive housing and expensive diets at adulthood, and are extremely difficult to (responsibly) place in new homes. They should thus only be owned by individuals who can provide lifetime care - which goes for any pet, but especially these already maligned snakes.

I think just about every dog owner of a restricted breed has made one of these by now. Harley Quinn is a 7 month old catahoula leopard dog mix, and her breed (plus mixes thereof) are sometimes included in breed-specific legislation. BSL discriminates against dogs and dog owners on the basis of breed regardless of individual temperament and owner responsibility - and it’s ineffective. Nowhere that BSL has been passed has there been a significant, sustained reduction in bites. It kills dogs and devastates owners while absolutely failing to protect public safety, so don’t be suckered by the media and politicians who would have you believe otherwise. We are Lennox… and we vote.

A sub-adult axolotl (horrid image quality to boot!). These unique amphibians retain larval traits after reproductive maturity - know as neoteny - and though common in captivity due to their popularity in medical research on limb regeneration are nearing extinction in the wild.
