Happy Tails AKA Megan Arriola
(Had her own thread here: >>612216 Due to lack of content she has been merged back into this thread.)
- Has over 100 animals.
-Keeps her animals in a small room with way under minimum enclosure sizes.
- Advises not to listen to veterinary advice, like not spaying and neutering rabbits.
- Backyard breeds dogs, purposefully mixed two breeds together and justified it by saying they're designer and "these breeds are really in right now".
- Breeds a potentially harmful gene (merle) into her dogs
- Uses aerosol products and paints her nails in the same room as her birds.
- Feeds her animals mostly fruits and vegetables without proper supplementation.
- Her bird almost died due to poor diet (vet literally put it on seed because it was too thin from bad diet).
- Had her snake and bird out on her body during livestream.
- Some of her cages have exposed wire and splotchy/peeling paint.
- Charges an OUTRAGEOUS amount for 'consultation' when she has 0 credentials and can't even say she does her own research for her own animals.

Brian Barczyk
-Hoards, breeds, and a lot of reptiles, that are often bad quality and sick.
- Keep them on little plastic containers, justifying it with saying 'they like it that way'.
- Inbreeds and shows little concern for genetics outside of producing colour morphs that will sell for $$$.
- Bullies costumers if they dare to call him out for the shitty conditions his animals have when they arrived.
- Both Tyler Rugge and Taylor Nicole Dean have made collabs with him.
- Got kicked out of playlist for bringing in a baby gator and snake to scare/prank people with.

Emzotic
-Complains about lolcow and similar sites, describing them as predators waiting for petubers to slip up. Which is ironic because after bizarre selfposting she was outed as being a frequent user of this site. She criticized the care of several petubers, including herself. See this post for a full explanation and her post history: >>624638
- Throws a lot of subtle shade at other pet youtubers despite pretending to be 'friends' with them all.
– Moved to America to live with hoarder BYB boyfriend Danny.
- Won't show habitats for most of her and Danny's animals, keeping the exact number of animals a secret. Some examples of enclosures not shown include; Snapping turtle, snakes, and (unseen) monitor lizards.
- Thought she could cycle a fish tank with old water, put two betta together to 'breed' despite clearly knowing nothing about breeding and conditioning the fish.
- Keeps her doves in the bare minimum of cages, also keeps them next to ferrets and has let them land on the ferret cage before.
- Was paid off to set up an awful Bearded dragon enclosure including substrate that can cause impaction.
- Says that she is not planning on getting anymore animals but still continues to get them

-Gives animals away and continues to get more.
-Keeps his rattlesnake in an enclosure without a lock.
-Has snakes in too small enclosures.
-He lets his tegu free roam in his reptile room without supervision. On one occasion his tegu ate an escaped western hognose snake. Recently took the tegu to the vet because he thought that he ate an escaped ball python. Good news he didn't eat the snake. Bad news, the snake is still missing and it ate one of his quail.

Maddie Smith
-Hoards animals, and at one time had over 50. Recently downsized to 30 in order to move in with Tyler Rugge.
-Justifies her hoarding by saying all her animals are taken to the vet.
-Back Yard Bred her rats, but claims she is no longer breeding. She ended up with sick baby rats.
-Recently got two doves; one got sick and died. She blamed the breeder and 'genetic' illness despite environmental being much more likely. Subsequently she got another bird from a 'better breeder' to replace it, didn't quarantine properly and that bird is now also very sick.
- Is a 'wildlife rehabber'; although is listed as 'social media adviser' on their poorly made site. Charity was also only registered in Ohio in September 2017.
-In her December 2017, “Meet My Pets” video she said her rabbit died from a viral infection; Coccidia. Coccidia is a parasite the is spread from improper hand washing.

- Keeps most of her animals in filthy conditions.

- Keeps parrots. Has actively lost her parrot Hope numerous times on camera.
- Flies her Parrot Hope in public parks around dogs and as such has been chased by dogs and accosted by dog owners more than once.
- Doesn't train her parrot to fly back to her on a signal, merely screams randomly.
- Has had Hope both chase native birds and be chased by native birds during her free flying, resulting in Hope being lost at least twice from this.

I worry about this new bird Carolin got. Not many breeders will sell an unweaned Hyacinth. They can be very sensitive and may end up getting sick. Also, she probably should have taken it out of the cage to feed it so it wouldn't bang its wings on stuff in the cage.

Do we have a running count on Cataleahs animals?! Coz she claims they’ve more than doubled in the last year. This is my best guess on the count I attempted to keep while watching the video:
18x ‘geckos’ (crested/leopard?) + ~17 babies? (hard to keep count)
3x gargoyle geckos+ baby
1x chahoua gecko
1x Mossy Leaftail gecko (2x died, temp spike)
2x Lechianas gecko +baby
2x Vieillard’s chameleon gecko +baby
1x lines leaf tail gecko
2x cat gecko
1x Sarasinorum gecko
5(?) Saint Isabelle frogs
1x ball python
1x abronia greminia lizard
1x smooth knobtail gecko
7x hognose snake
2x milk snakes
1x speckled king snake
2x tarantula
1x other bug??
2x mice + 5(?) babies (feeders)
1x cat
2x dogs
3x sugar gliders +baby
5x parakeets
2x finches
2x goldfish
7x chicks
7x rabbits
2x turkeys
17x chickens
4x doves
1x pigeon

= ~133??
(I don’t know much about reptiles/inverts so have just parroted the names she used)

-Constantly talks about geckos probably going to bite her, but persists on getting them out, including one in shed (surely you’re not supposed to handle them when they’re in shed??)
-talks about ‘favourite’ animals on channel but lets be honest who can keep up
-I can’t get over how she literally just breeds ALL her animals. Like most people will specialist with one species or even TYPE but she’s currently breeding sugar gliders, geckos/lizards, snakes, birds and mice.
-‘rehomed’ tropical tank

Also, for non bird-people, Hyacinths are the largest parrot kept as pets, and are ENDANGERED. I am extremely unhappy that this irresponsible woman will be owning a species that could be impacted by her carelessness.

It was a heart attack due to a fright in the middle of the night. Not uncommon in birds honestly. They can easily be startled by unusual sounds and should they hit toys or perches and get tangled they can stress really bad. Not WK but I firmly believe it was an accident

>>736345

Raw is the best however what she does is not the right way. There are many methods of raw feeding but her method is far from correct. She should be providing bone with all her meals, she doesn't give the chihuahua bone because of "poor dental health" but that is why you provide ground bone. She also gives them a lot of oats and rice which provide them no nutritional value and are just fillers. Whole squashes for veggies? Why not leafy greens ground in. She doesn't weigh any of the bowls so it's hard to tell if dogs are getting more or less food. She's giving them too much egg and not with the shell, egg shell should be ground and put in with the egg for a complete protein. Her diets look like she just throws in whatever is in her fridge or on sale at the store at the time

It's a bit shitty to rehome your pets when you should be committed to keeping them for their entire life, but at the same time I wish the rest of the petfest lot would take the hint and do whats best for their animals, even if that means rehoming them because they have too many.

I'm honestly wondering how her channel is going to move forward from this. Unless pets die (even more than already) to free up time and space, can she get more pets when she's just rehomed a bunch? Surely after doing something like this it pretty much means you can't and won't be bringing in any new animals for a while? I can imagine the backlash if she does.

No. 737240

A couple things bothered me about her video. I’ve had cresties and gargoyles lay eggs every season. None of them have died from it, not even after several clutches. And to not notice egg-laying behavior is concerning. And like 3-4 ads on a ten minute video… nice. It was weird how she threw in that jab about “I didn’t have to tell you” like what? Where does that animosity come from? Overall I’m sure she made the right decision tho because she didn’t seem to have time to even check her geckos enough to see multiple clutches of eggs.

No. 737603

See, now I do have some respect for Pickles. Unlike other pettubers that fucking neglect their animals to death (cough TND cough), Pickles realized that she couldn't properly care for certain animals and instead of trying to save face and keep them and pretend like everything was fine until they inevitably died from improper care, she did the responsible thing and gave them to someone who could give them the proper care (presumably, at least…). I usually am of the mind that pets are for life, but I also believe that that ideology shouldn't be followed at the expense of the pet's health or happiness. She realized she was in over her head…even if she did try to play it off like she wasn't. We know she bit off more than she could chew…why else would she rehome the pets if she wasn't overwhelmed?

I do wonder about the hamsters….for both of them to die on the same day, that just seems like too much of a coincidence. I'm thinking it was something in the water or in their food.

No. 737662

>>737603
Did she buy/rescue anyone of these animals during the time she’s had her channel? Or did she have them before. Sounds like she tried to keep up with her buddies in her group and realised she couldn’t deal with it. Crested geckos and gargoyles are easy to care for. Wtf was she doing?!

How does everyone here feel about Brian Barcyzk? I swear every damn video of his he either gets a new rare animal or an animal is on the loose or some other clickbaity stuff.

No. 737742

>>737662
I think she got addicted to the purchasing of pets and keeping up with other pettubers. It wasn't so long ago that the only pets she had were her two dogs and her hamsters. Then she bought her first reptile (a leopard gecko, I believe) and after that she just kept going and used the same excuse as all the other pettubers–"I have the money and time so it's okay that I just bought 5 animals in a week. It's totally not hoarding."

She got overwhelmed and that's probably how she missed some obvious stuff like her reptiles laying eggs. When you've got 10+ pets that require your time and care, things get overlooked. Hence why no sane person should have that many pets unless they own some kind of sanctuary and have help.

No. 737822

Did anyone see this video? This is Brian Barczyk’s son (and Brian was the one who bought him the turkey). The turkey looks and sounds miserable. Someone in the comments mentioned they need constant 100°F heat for the first week of life, which is most likely why it kept pressing itself against him.

No. 737837

>>737742
I agree it was to keep up, she openly admits yeah the biggest pet youtubers are the ones with tons of pets making tons of content.
In her one video she does say pretty much, "if you do only have a few pets though some channels do really great just focusing on one animal," but it gives the vibe she even has to acknowledge yeah more pets, more views. I feel like it was a fairly recent video if anyone wants to check it out.
I think Pickles is a good example though, when you collect pets eventually real life will hit, as it always does. Those are living mouths to feed.
I can't say I hate her for rehoming them though.

No. 737884

>>737837
Yeah she said once she got her first reptile she gained a lot more views.
Some channels have had a similar amount of animals for a long time and are really good with their animals. Sounds like she didn’t have time to interact with hers.

Brian is terrible. Hate the guy. Seems like only uneducated kids watch his channel, because he spews bullshit. He also lets his animals get used in pranks like jake paul.

I wasn't trying to WK, that's why I went into such detail about how she even admitted more pets more views, and I said "if you want to watch it," because some people want to see for themselves, but you don't have to as I quoted it. I stopped liking her after she defended Taylor.
I just can't hate her for rehoming before more animals die. Some pet youtubers who have all these pets should maybe look into rehoming before they start getting serial deaths too.
Also why I said she's a great example. Having tons of pets is fun when you can feed them and deal with them. But life happens, if you are barely making it and taking care of them when that happens, it'll show.

No. 738793

You should hate her for being an arrogant ass and continue to add pets only to rehome them when people were questioning the quantity and pace she was acquiring more. Suddenly she’s overwhelmed? I don’t buy that excuse. Sorry

No. 738817

>>738793
Serial buying pets to keep up with other youtubers, yes I can hate her for that. Defending Taylor, then being friends with her, yes I can hate her for that.
But rehoming them after she clearly can't keep them and she's had 4 die, no I can't hate her for not continuing to "care" for them.
Like I said even if you can barely keep them all okay, life happens. These are living creatures who don't deserve it, so if they went to people without 20 animals, good.
As an isolated thing, it's not the worst thing she's done. Yeah I agree she followed the arrogance of everyone else, hence why I said she's a good example. Everything is fine and they can do it, or else they wouldn't do it, until they can't and they have half of them die and they get rid of the rest.
It'll happen to them all eventually, maybe they'll learn. Hopefully she won't continue to collect pets, but who knows.

Well, she did recently announce the death of her blood python who always had shed problems. Seems like she can't have any animal shed properly.
Speaking of the blood pythons death, has that been discussed yet? It appears she hung onto that information for about a year before announcing his death. I mentioned the lack of appearances from that snake a few threads back, and she announced that he was dead a week or two ago.

Instead they had to film themselves donating because they are so generous and need the world to know how great they are.
I'm sorry. I get salty when people have to show everyone that they donated.

Maybe that's why Maddie jumped on the TND drama. Needing that ad revenue to pay rent.

Camelsandfriends is a complete retard. Her "wolf" Lorne she used to own was an upper mid content wolfdog— about 75% wolf. She bought him from a breeder, and a contact of mine owns one of his relatives. She has no clue how to handle wolfdogs and provoked Lorne to the point of him attacking her one time, then played this off as him being dangerous and aggressive. Everyone in the wolfdog community hates her because she's inexperienced, attacks other owners, and is an embarrassment.

She got rid of Lorne recently. Thank God. I only hope he's with a responsible owner now. She takes okay care of her camels but that's it. Had to re-home a hornbill once too, I believe her mink died prematurely as well.

I just watched Tyler Rugge's video of his Rabbit Room Tour and it's the most depressing thing I've ever fucking seen lol. Just a big bunny penned into one half of a spare room, seems isolated from the rest of the house, has no hides or ramps or anything to climb on. He has a couple of old blankets on the floor, a litter tray with food in it, and some bird toys clipped to the wire of the cage that he showed no interest in. Kinda obvious in the video that Tyler's interest in that rabbit is minimal at best. It's just laying there, completely disinterested in life. It has nothing to interact with or exercise its instincts with. Even his "fans" in the comments section said it. I usually don't pay attention to Tyler but that fucking got to me lol.

SimplyBetta is a tool. I actually caught her when she was just starting her channel & I remember her ordering an absolutely absurd number of show bettas at the same time while also showing off her "new fish room" which was an emptied out tiny bathroom. After that it was just unboxing after unboxing. I had no idea how she thought she was going to keep them all in there. It just really struck me that she had the idea to become a "pet YouTuber" one day & just ordered thousands of dollars worth of animals and turned on the camera. She made no mention of having bettas before this. You would think that if she already enjoyed fish keeping, she would have had a few fish she could show off that she got before starting her channel.

He started to poop white film, his Kok deflated, and he started acting listless. IMO Joey did a lot to help him (He says he spent over $1,000 on Frank's treatment) and he ended up passing away because of his stomach and bad genes. I don't think you should buy rescue fish, but I loved Frank sm and I'm really torn about it.

No. 745922

>>745921
Stomach and bad genes… eh… 2 years is still a really shit run for a fish that should live 10-15.

Honestly it looked like Frank had some kind of parasite that was ignored. Then only treated when he was too far gone already / internal damage etc. You can see he has the start of dropsy in some of the later clips.

No. 745929

>>745922
>>745921
Dropsy and pooping a white film are some of the most common signs of internal parasites in fish. It doesn’t surprise me considering the amount of fish he owns. By the time Dropsy is visible, it is usually too late to save the fish. I don’t really watch his channel regularly, I’ve only seen a couple of his videos so I can’t really say if it was negligence or if his symptoms appeared suddenly.

No. 745932

>>745929
King of DIY has too many fish imho. His aquariums require a lot of upkeep that he unlikely has time for.

Frank is not his favourite fish and it's likely he was mostly ignored until the problem became very obvious. I do believe he tried to treat Frank… but I do think this is another case whereby the /amount/ of animals someone owns, negatively effects their care.

No. 745942

He said he treated for both parasites and bacteria, and looked for abnormalities under the microscope. And, since flowerhorns are hybrids, I'd say giving an exact lifespan is probably a bit frivolous. I'm inclined to believe his explanation, as he seemed very forthright and honest about the situation. It's quite possible that Franks' bad genes did really shorten his life.

No. 745948

>>745942
You're aware there are different parasites and many many different strains of bacteria that respond well/less well to a variety of treatments.

Skin scrapings can also only show you so much, they would not be effective for internal parasites or bacterial infections.

Flowerhorns have been around long enough that folks also know they live longer than 2 years on average.

No. 746094

I don't know much about fish honestly, don't even want them because of the ridiculous work load. But I do watch a lot of fish youtubers and DIY King seems to be the best at what he does. His husbandry seems to be the most on point, unlike someone like Catch 'em All who just snatches big, already thriving fish from the wild and toss them into overcrowded pool ponds to live out a miserable life or disappear and "Go off to live with a friend"

Gotta give DIY props for the clean tanks and basically building a house next to his house for the hobby. Like someone else said, he doesn't seem all that attached to his fish but seems to care more about the hobby as a whole. But all fish youtubers seem like that to me, hard to love a pet you can't touch I guess.

I feel like he did everything he could for Frank though, according to a quick google search dropsy(didn't know what dropsy was) could could also be a sign of bacterial infection or liver dysfunction as well as parasites. I guess its hard to tell though, since theres not really a market for fish vets.

No. 746110

>>745948
Yes, obviously I am aware of that. I'm saying he did what he could with what was available to him. Like he said in the video, most vets don't do much of anything for fish. And he didn't just look at skin scrapings, he said he looked at feces too. What else do you want him to do? Flowerhorns have only been around since the 90s. Throwing together two (or more, as is the case for the flowerhorn) different species and expecting the genetics of their offspring to be stable in that amount of time is ridiculous. You can't use average lifespans as a true indicator for how long a flowerhorn will live as easily as you could with a naturally occurring cichlid, for instance. The fact that Frank had visible problems, like his short body, is enough for me to believe his genetic makeup may have cut his life short. Of course parasites or other infections are still possible, but I believe the King of DIY did his best to find and treat anything abnormal.

I think the problem is Joey has too many fish now… I've watched him for a long time. His gallery has had him amassing fish at an exponential rate.

It's the same story for pettubers… the more animals they have, the more their care slips.

I honestly think while he might have tried to save Frank, he simply didn't catch it in time because he had so many other animals to deal with. It was obvious it was something internal when he was just giving Frank clean water changes… who knows how long this had been going on before he spotted a lack of appetite too…

Then there's the shadiness of Frank dying in October and us only finding out now. Why not blog his treatment? Let your audience go through that with you? If you have nothing to hide and this took place over months that's what most pet owners would do.

Instead he pulled a Taylor: It's the breeders fault, it's genetics, I did everything I could, he wasn't going to live long anyway, honestly it's because I did so well he lived as long as he did etc. etc. etc.

im not saying frank would have lived if joey had done this or that but hes lying about the vet thing and he knows it. another thing that pisses me off is he let poor frank slowly die even though he knew there was no hope and frank was obviously suffering, the last kind thing we have to give our pets is a fast and painless death. its every keepers responsibility. letting animals waste away is cruel.

There are so many kids and teens in the comments asking for advice or saying that they want to get a bird too. It makes me so sad to think about all the animals that are bought because of these pettubers, who are neglected or will soon be abandoned or rehomed when these kids inevitably loose interest or go off to college. Birds are especially prone to this because of how long they live.

she honestly knows nothing about how birds bond. I doubt those birds will ever actually breed so I don't think we'll have to worry about that. Only thing is if they don't get along and she shoves them in the same cage they could severely hurt each other, especially during breeding season.

I don’t know a lot about bunnies, so maybe some bunny anons can fill me in, but why is it that pettubers don’t seem too concerned about finding their bun a companion? If bunnies do need companions as much as I think they do, then wouldn’t that be the number one concern immediately? Is it possible to have a happy, healthy bun without a companion, or are these pettubers (mostly Tyler) just lying to themselves?

Also, in regards to Mango, I don’t think it was “just a heart-attack.” I’ve owned birds for years and done my own research, and I’ve never seen any scientific evidence backing the fact that “birds just get spooked sometimes and die.” Please correct me if you do have scientific support for that.

Typically when a bird has a heart attack it’s because that bird was already predisposed to having a heart attack (poor diet, poor genes, heart blockage, etc.) When you take a bird in for a necropsy, the vet usually won’t be able to tell you how that bird died. Merely cutting the bird open will only be able to tell them how it MAY have died (if you got the bird in quickly enough after freezing it, at least). The only way to determine exactly how a bird died is by sending a sample in to have scientific testing done, which is extremely expensive. Tyler’s vet most likely told him that it seemed like it could have been a heart attack, and he may not have had any further testing done.

That said, I do NOT think that Mango’s death was Tyler’s fault. Even if Mango was predisposed to a heart attack because of his genetics or heart problems that Tyler wasn’t aware of, that isn’t Tyler’s fault. Birds are extremely fragile creatures who often don’t display any noticeable signs of illness until it’s too late. I feel terrible for Tyler because I know he loved that bird, and seeing a bird owner lose their parrot regardless of the circumstances hits me hard. I can’t imagine waking up one day to find one of my babies dead, but I know that it’s inevitable. We aren’t perfect, and animals do pass.

I think a lot of the companion thing is down to time and space.
Time - Literally will take up to months to introduce two bunnies together if they didn't already know each other, and they should be around the same size which means you can't just buy whatever you see. I don't think a lot of these petubers would be willing to put the time and the energy in.
Space - As we have seen, a lot of their enclosures are already small. Throw another rabbit in there and you will have more people complaining because it is so obvious. I don't think any of them would be willing to expand their enclosures tbh.

As for happiness, I think socialising with them nearly 24/7 will mean they're happy little things, as it would happen with any social animal. However, they live in groups in the wild so all you're doing is taking away the opportunity for natural behaviour, and i highly doubt they get much 'floor' space so these animals are living shit lives.

I agree with a lot of these things. I think AfroHerpkeeper specifically has fixed a lot of his problems. Tegu no longer roams due to concerns over him not receiving proper basking. Rattlesnake cage has a lock I'm p sure also. The Ball Python escape should not have happened, but at least it was found. That was an easily avoidable mistake and criticism is 100% due, I mean it's a BP just lock the enclosure and you're good. Also his Job correlates directly to his hobby, so I don't see the issue there. Overall not perfect, but I would overall say better than Taylor Nicole Dean, Happy Tails (Fuck Happy Tails I fucking hate them not just as an owner but as person), Brian B, etc. who really only try to sensationalize with their animals.

Sorry for sounding like a defensive fan, but a lot of afroherpkeeper stuff is being fixed or has been fixed, his tegu doesn't free roam anymore because of the eaten snake problem (in a growtent), his snake's enclosures are slowly being fixed, and his ball python has been found.

I watched a couple of his videos and he's TRASH. He has FOUR turtles in a tiny outdoor pond that isn't more than 30 gallons.

Well first off any female bird will lay eggs no matter if there is a mate or not (like a chicken) therefor the nest building could just be that. The regurgitating can be normal if the person is very bonded to the bird, it's kinda seen as a present. The exception is that she's only had her a couple days if I'm correct, so that kind of behavior seems strange.
Didn't she say she wasn't gonna breed them now?

Please do not compare parrots to chickens breeding wise. Sorry to be a dick but you don’t seem to be right person to share information of exotic birds.

Sexual behaviour is not healthy for bird-human relationships. It frustrates the bird because it can’t fulfil its natural nesting behaviour with human. That causes problems with attachment.

The original IG comment is on point. You should never let your bird perfom sexual actions to you or encourage that behaviour. That’s why it is important to parrot owners to educate themselves about parrot’s mating habits. We may not always recognize the warning signs.

all I was comparing chickens to parrots was that they both lay eggs whether they are fertile or not, I wasn't saying that their breeding behavior was similar in any way. but if I'm seen as someone who doesn't know what they're talking about by just stating the simple fact that most birds lay eggs then my whole life has been a lie.
Don't get me wrong I wasn't defending her at all in that the bird was acting like her hand was a chick and she just went along with it. I was simply implying that it is fairly normal for some parrots to do this. Although I did forget to mention that it shouldn't be encouraged in any way which I definitely agree with.

First pettuber I immediately hated. Her monitor care makes me so angry. That poor savannah is morbidly obese and she made a whole video telling her fans that force taming and breaking the will of an animal is acceptable. Can't speak much on her other animals because I stopped watching her as soon as I saw that mess.

Because Emma is a Taylor wannabe with no integrity. Anything to get popular on YouTube, it's actually kind of tragic. How can she say she cares about animals when she literally defends Taylor's every move.

She's not a pet youtuber, but her choice of getting guinea pigs has definitely influenced more people than a lot of these pet youtubers. I actually even got a guinea pig after she did years ago. Now she only has one guinea pig all alone, and she never takes him out of his cage for floor time or for attention. Poor guy is probably so lonely and bored. She should just rehome him already so that he can have a better life.

No. 750640

But equally with older rodents if you suddenly rehome the stress of a new home can be bad, and you shouldn’t just give up on a pet because it’s on its own, you should give it attention and make sure it’s happy and healthy. Pets aren’t disposable, you don’t just rehome them because they’re on their own.

As much as it's a difficult desision, if you have an elderly guinea pig and are not wanting to get more/cannot find another elderly guinea pig to pair together. I do think that's a rare circumstance where it's better to rehome the animal to someone who maybe has other piggies I don't think it's fair to kee him alone they're such social wee things.

These kids really disgust me, as an avid Reptile Enthusiast myself I hope they all get blown out of the water by a new wave of mature, professional hobbyists who actually have something to offer. I really do not pay much mind to the whole Pettube ordeal, a while back I came across a few of their channels, which are now just flooded with pathetic emotional videos all trying to defend one another's care choices. They are really a prime example of that socially awkward clique in High School, who all do whatever it takes to have the spotlight. They are all fake, they have all bashed Brian Barcyzk for his Snake Racks and care in general, however Maddie and Emma both posted sob stories about why Taylor Nicole Dean's Racks/care are completely justifiable, yet they all try to draw negative attention to other people to keep it off themselves. AND they all were extremely quick to be buddy buddy with Brian when they got the opportunity to go to the Reptarium (which they obviously knew would get them views if they vlogged the trip) They will really do whatever it takes to get those views, even if it means being two-faced toward fellow Hobbyists and constantly LYING…. I am grateful that their true colors are being shown, much too many people are still blind to whats really going on, and still supporting them. These are privileged, wealthy kids who woke up one day and saw potential in being involved with the Pet Community, they did not have to work for any of this, it was all handed to them regardless of their qualifications, which are clearly jack fucking squat. None of them have enough experience to sit down in front of a camera and think they can properly "teach" thousands of people, it is EXTREMELY transparent that they are the ones with the learning to do. All of their Care Videos are pretty much word for word right from the animal's Wikipedia page, it does not appear any of them have knowledge that reflects long-term experience with animals.

True for the pettube clique. But there are some good channels like snake discovery, serpa design, tikis geckos, leopard gecko, clints reptiles, mike tytula, etc. They’re all quite specific about their animals and care and go in depth. The general pet tubers gain a variety of animals to appeal to a broader audience and seem to know shit all about the care.

No. 751082

Whats sad is that all of the mistakes that these fuck tards make are at the expense of an innocent animal, who some people would DIE to have and care for. I would do anything to have the budget these kids have to take care of animals, I honestly don't know how they manage to FUCK UP with the amount of money handed to them to invest in the proper equipment to maintain Exotic Animals, especially Taylor. I know people who take care of TWICE as many animals on not even HALF the budget these motherfuckers get and they have 0 issues making sure every individual is cared for properly. There is no excuse, Pettube.

No. 751091

i would like to ask someone more experienced in reptiles than i am, how do you feel about people herping. i personally don't think it is bad as long as it is oberving but i start having problems when they actually manhandle the animal. it seems like unnecessary stress. and seen as though stress lowers their immune system making them more susceptible to diseases, it is also risky

No. 751096

>>751091

Herping is an excellent activity for Reptile lovers to engage in responsibly. Sadly some people set the wrong example, therefor leading others in to believing it is okay to go out and manhandle a wild snake while its musking everywhere, just for a video thumbnail. Herping was established as an activity for us to go out in to Nature and get up close and personal with Reptiles/Amphibians while keeping it safe and humane, a practice which some people have thrown under the bus just to get a video published.

"it is always better not to touch any Reptile or Amphibian you find in the wild. not only does handling cause the animal stress, but you could also be potentially contaminating the animal and therefor its environment with you're own bacteria which it is not used to."

I can't say that I have screenshots to share with you since most of the evidence I am standing behind is from video footage, however some statements that have been made in Emma's, as well as Maddie and Tyler's videos are without a doubt directed toward Brian Barczyk wether they said his name or not. Emma is a part of Reptile Keepers Against Brian Barczyk on Facebook.

Fact of the matter is they all have no problem playing a part in demeaning someone else's way of life, but all feel attacked when someone calls out them or their friend. They can spread the hate but they can't take the hate. Not saying Brian is someone that should be looked up to, like the comment above me stated, he has donated animals to be used in numerous David Dobrik vlogs where the animals were used to prank people in an inhumane setting/fashion. I don't think any of these people deserve to be uploading videos everyday and receive income for them, people are funding animal abuse on a daily basis by watching these videos.

I really love Snake Discovery's care in general. Snake people always seem to have an insane amount of snakes though, I guess because they don't eat much and don't eat often they're just easier to take care of? Her enclosures are really neat though and her snakes(thats she's shown) are really healthy looking.

I don't agree with her keeping an alligator in such a small space though, I get that her growth is stunted and she'll stay smallish forever but it just doesn't look like a very enriching environment I guess. Rex can't even swim in that tiny pool and can't even turn around without bumping into anything.

My biggest concern is the snake feeding, she's literally handling the snake while it's eating.
I'm all for education about reptiles but they already have so many feeding videos that there's not much point to handling them, also the snake wasn't even hiding so… it's all a bit pointless?

The other thing I never really liked about Snake Discovery is the fact that they 'rescue' a lot of animals that are wild or have a questionable quality of life - that snake for example, while it's nice that they're making sure he's fed, will he be okay in the future?

The other big thing is obviously the rack system they have going on with the majority of their animals.

handling a snake while feeding it or it shedding its not inherently bad. its just the stress it may cause can lead to the snake regurgitating or having bad sheds. she mentions that the snakes that ae being held are those who go to programs meaning that the do it frequently and are used to it. snake racks are also not bad if done correctly. and she shares information on how to minimise/solve a problem why is that bad? i d be more concerned that she breed scaleless snakes which are more susceptible to burns and scratches and thus normalises this trend

Why is no one talking about the fact that carolin keeps Hope in a dog crate. Her ‘new’ cage for the hyacinth is no where near big enough for a bird of that size. I’d be interested in seeing what the cages of her other birds look like. Wouldn’t be surprised if they’re in dog crates too.

No. 755139

>>755083

Hope can hardly sit up and his tail sticks out the other end. He spends more time in that crate then she will admit and you can see him stuck in it in the background of many of her hyacinth or beginnings of her videos.

Her hyacinth cages are what a normal African grey, Amazon, cockatoo cage size should be. Her Amazon's and lorikeet are in conure/cockatiel sized cages and I'm pretty sure they rarely get to leave considering she spends all her time with the macaws now. She used to free fly the other birds but they have been tossed aside and trapped in their cages since the macaws.

Her house is cramped, there is no room in her bird room for 1 macaw let alone all 6 of her birds and to have multiple out at the same time can be dangerous and chaotic. Therefore it means many of them are trapped in tiny boring cages for hours possibly days at a time. Since the hyacinth are the new star of the show you can bet she's not going to bother with the rest anytime soon

Her bird "room" is the entryway between her back door and the kitchen and is open to the kitchen. She keeps Love and Fluffy in her bedroom. Cap from >>749088.

In b4 she gets evicted for Fluffy's screaming. Will it draw the attention of her landlords to find out just how many birds she has? I wonder if her city has a pet limit.

Today she posted a pic of Destiny supposedly from the Christmas Eve free fly, no doubt in response to all the negative comments.

Hunting outside designated areas or off season results in an automatic revoke.
Both her and this guy on facebook are missing the point, that dude is breaking the fucking law and instead of going on about "hunting is bad m'kay" take the fact he was hunting where he wasn't meant to be and he was hunting shit he was not meant to to the fucking police.

Her turtle care is horrible, she gives her turtles way less than the minimum amount of water they need. She has a video where she diy's their enclosures but she uses MAX 55 gallon plastic containers (she just says the biggest they had at home Depot) which will only work for her smaller male turtles, since they need minimum 10 gallons of water per inch of shell. Therefore, her female full grown turtles should have at least 125 gallons of water. She gives them less than half of that. She also has a tank where she keeps two different kinds of snapping turtles together. I don't know much about snapping turtles, but you shouldn't keep two dangerous turtles that close to each other. (You shouldn't house ANY two aquatic turtles together if you don't have enough room to let them have their own territories. That's how I ended up having to rescue a RES with only ONE foot left.) I can't imagine what those snapping turtles could do to each other.

Steff J is a hoarder. She has far too many cats and dogs. None of them get good food, pretty garbage at best. It's unlikely they get proper walks or interaction as well. She keeps a duck indoors wearing a diaper 24/7 which is extremely unhealthy for ducks. She fails to show her enclosures fully but I have seen snippets in the background and they are pretty minimum.

Ants Canada at it again.

Quick rundown of this mess:

- Prematurely digs up pupating beetles because his fans told him to. A commenter on the video pointed out that they appear to have not finished hardening when he did that, and the legs were bowing in because they weren't hard enough to support the beetles yet, and that that might affect them going forward.
- Spreading misinformation about the mycorrhizal fungi growth in one of the beetles enclosures and acting like it was extremely dangerous to the health of the animal. He has a lot of bioactive enclosures, so he frankly should have known what it was and how beneficial it is to animal enclosures and ecosystems. If he didn't that means he straight up doesn't do much research. But given the fact that he keeps the beetle in the fungi infested enclosure means that he probably did know, and was just fear mongering for the drama of it.
- Several of the beetles are covered in mites. He claims this is normal for beetles, and I don't know enough about them to confirm or deny this but a commenter on the video said it was no good for the beetles.
- Plans on pitting the males against each other for a future video?! He claims he plans on doing it in a controlled way so that none of them get hurt but regardless, he cannot guarantee nothing will happen, and even if it goes smoothly, he is still introducing these animals he claims to love to an unnecessary, stressful situation under the guise of having them experience natural behaviours. Normally this is a good thing to do but not at the expense of their health, you don't dehydrate your animals so that they can experience the the natural event of a drought? Also because some of those beetles have mites, putting them into a stressful situation will make them more vulnerable to any ill effects those mites have on them.

I am honestly appalled.
Especially for a channel built on ant care. You'd think he's be more sensitive to other athropods than the average person. Sounds like he wants to make this a yearly event too.

Carolin absolutely engineers dangerous situations for clicks. Here is Fluffy on her kitchen counter playing with a cat toy ball in a ceramic bowl half full of food. Carolin keeps filming as Fluffy pushes the bowl closer and closer to the edge until it falls. She catches it but food goes flying in all directions.

I agree. If you don't have the space for an animal, you shouldn't have it as a pet.

Someone who lives in the top floor of a tower block, shouldn't keep a horse in their apartment. That's obvious. But the same is true for birds who need a decent amount of space and toys and specialised conditions (no air pollutants etc).

Her blogs are all plagiarized, she likely wrote her own Wikipedia page and everything else about her that exists online, and the crime is falsely accusing someone of a crime. (It would likely just be a civil action, but it could potentially be a misdemeanor depending on the context and the state’s laws).

Fluffy is frustrated and doesn't seem to be getting the attention or stimulation she wants from Carolin. She's spending time with her sure but I don't think she really plays with her birds.

You can give birds all these toys but sometimes they'll want to just play with you. The situations are different (and I'm still somewhat new to owning a larger bird species that isn't budgies) but my sun conure does something similar to this. He'll fling things around and/or nip at me until I start wrestling with him or flinging his toys around for him to chase or wrestle till he eentually calms down and goes to preening/eating.

There's also the possibility that Fluffy just isn't happy with what she has, more toys to shred, foraging toys or stuff that makes loud noises when she hits it might be what she wants.

She’s more dangerous than you might think. Not only is her pet care horrid, but she markets herself as a bird expert and sells books on freeflight, along with lessons and in person sessions, on her website. I can easily see a naive bird owner being wrapped into something like this and losing their bird based on her advice. You’d be surprised how big the freeflight scene has gotten and how many “trainers” end up costing people their beloved pets.

She tried to become an actress/director, and now that she’s realized it won’t happen for her, she’s trying to turn her birds into a business.

13:30 For 27 years Fluffy's owner put her in a small cage in a dark closet under the stairs to put her to sleep when she acted out.

14:50 She almost sold her and had 30 responses from people "willing to pay the price for Glory".

She says she knows that Fluffy loves her and that she is like a "troubled child from an abusive home" that just needs love and attention.

dysecdysis (Incomplete/improper shedding) is often the result of poor husbandry and or improper nutrition. Other causes may be: external (mites) and internal (worms) parasites, infections, trauma, dermatitis, malnutrition, over-handling and in improper lighting, temperature or humidity. it can also indicate a more serious problem requiring veterinarian care.
it is important for the snake to shed for them to grow.
if a snake does have an improper shed there are really 2 ways of dealing with it. "bathing" it (soaking it in lukewarm-warm water, shallow enough for the snake to not drown, and always attending it) or by letting it crawl trough layers of cloths (a pillow case most often that not) that are soaked in lukewarm-warm water so as not to shock the animal with the temperature difference
the second is prefered if the snake has patches of shed on it while the first in worse sheds.
never ever peel the patches of skin even if the sbake has had a bad shed. you pull the still attached to the scales shed, violently and can damage the snakes scales and wound it which can lead to infection or irriation.
emzotic is doing it correctly even though soaking is stressfull she is not actively putting it in danger, the other clips are an example of what you should never do. so she is right to lash on them for slandering her with out any correct reason

That pisses me off as a ferret owner. Senior ferrets often fall ill to common diseases like isulinoma, adrenal, lymphoma, as well as heart and liver disease. The nature of some of these diseases can be scary. A “perfectly fine ferret” can crash one day and need immediate medical attention. Not to mention they need rabies and distemper vaccines yearly. Is she going to travel out of state to give them the vet care that they need? If her ferret comes down with an illness and yes it can happy very fast and aggressively how is she supposed to get them to a vet quickly? Ferrets love to gonoutside on leashes and while i would not recommend a public park because of children and dogs, your yard (assuming you do not use pesticides) is a great place to let them out for a dig in the garden. This is way too risky and she has lost my respect for sharing thi online to influence others.

Not true.

https://cvma.net/resources/animals-medicine-diseases/veterinary-care-of-illegal-wildlife/ferrets/

But a legislative bill that took effect January 1, 2003 authorizes a veterinarian to possess any prohibited animal for the purpose of providing veterinary care. The veterinarian may possess “the animals only for the period of time that, in his or her judgment, veterinary care and treatment are necessary.”

This bill removed the cloud of uncertainty that bothered many veterinarians when they treated these animals. It has never been illegal for a veterinarian to treat these animals, but there was a question about “possession” when the animals were hospitalized. Now there is no doubt that veterinarians can treat and hospitalize these animals when necessary without fear of being cited for possession of an illegal species.

The bill also made it clear that veterinarians do not have any obligation to report knowledge of these animals being possessed illegally by the owner. The regulations state: “No veterinarian, registered veterinary technician, or unregistered assistant working under the supervision of a veterinarian, has a duty to advise law enforcement if he or she becomes aware that one or more of the animals is possessed in the state.”

I know this isn't what this thread is for but I just don't know where else there is a group of animal lovers so thought I'd give it a shot! Sorry if this is against the rules or anything I couldn't find the rules link?

I have a 2 year old mouse who's gotten a tumour (I've readerched its sadly extreamly common in mice this old) she's eating/drinking/running around/isn't acting different. She doesn't shy away from being touched/doesn't bite so I don't think she is in any pain. I've given her an extra deep beding (carefresh) and took away her high climbing toys/small tunnels anything she could hurt herself on but is there anything else I should do?

Is it best to leave her/let her live out her last wee while in peace and let her pass on in sleep, or is it best to go to the vet and put her down? I really do not think she's in any kind of pain and she's still running on her wheel all night

And Dusty, you are such a fucking idiot. One of the biggest attention whores I've ever seen and you seem like an actual incel with how happy you get whenever a woman disagrees with you and you can "really show her" with your "superior education". Get a fucking reality check, you've started studying to become a vet tech like half a year ago; you don't know anything and saying that your job is basically the same as a vets is insulting towards any vets that have studied for years.
You hide behind your happy and teasing facade and how you're just having fun but anyone with 2 brain cells that they can still rub together can see that you're just thriving off the attention. If you truly can't see what a gross person you are then I feel sorry for you. Stop riding TNDs dick and protecting people like Jonny Craig by saying innocent until proven guilty. Luckily, you fit right in with the Pettuber community because almost none of them know what the actual fuck they are talking about, not even your idol and crush Emzotic. So you've got that going for you, except that you will never fit in there because you are a fucking creep. So stop embarrassing yourself by constantly talking about Emzotic and TND when the former only acknowledged you for MONEY and the latter would probably take one look at you and scoff.

Anyone notice the rift in Emma Sampsons leachianus video? Besides the fact she repeats that leachies get huge 100 times or that they're the same as cresties (news flash they arent). She said her gecko was 9 grams. She also said she's had him for awhile and he's been in quarantine (minimum 4 weeks). So either she bought a hatchling leachie from an incredibly irresponsible breeder, it gained no weight for a whole month or she straight up lied about quarantine to seem like a good pet owner. She also had no idea how locality was Pine Island x Moro she called it Isle E. She's also keeping the tiny baby in a 12x18 which is far too large.

So basically she lies about quarantine, didn't properly research leachie care (cause they're not crested geckos) and didn't even take the time to learn what locale hers was. Looks like the clone is becoming the queen

It bugs me because HT has so much more potential than Taylor.

She thrusts Love's face into Angel's personal space. "Love, do you forgive Angel? Can you say I forgive you? Love? Can you say I forgive you?" as she slowly moves him closer to Angel.

Love attacks Angel and Angel lunges for his eye. She blames Angel, shakes her finger at him, and tells him he's been a bad boy and is going to "time out".

I saw the pictures and thought it was a rescue she couldn't afford but tried to take in, but apparently it's a bird she bred? It's beyond stupid. If you can't afford to take care of the animals you do have, why would you breed even more birds?

All of her animals are cared for correctly and she actually learns from her mistakes unlike most of the other people discussed in this thread. When she went on hiatus for health reasons she rehomed almost all of her animals so they could be taken care of properly.

No. 774549

>>774540

But how is that cared for correctly? 2 solitary animals kept in too small of cage, with half the number of hides that 2 geckos should have, improper heating, and improper lighting? All of the out pet youtubers on this list that have geckos have kept them way better than this. And her excuse when it died after like a year was that it was just bad breeding. Same excuse she gave when all her discus died.

It’s definitely from fighting. Syrian hamsters will often kill each other if put together, they are solitary animals. That’s why you don’t keep them together, unless you’re a sociopath using them for bloodsport like this guy.
I’d say the hamster is lucky to be alive but it would have been better off dead. It will likely die a slow and painful death from infection.

Simply Betta only got bettas in the first place because she wanted to start a YouTube channel and sell fish. She spent a crazy amount of money acquiring as many fish as possible in a small amount of time and almost immediately started selling them online for stupid prices. Go on her website right now and see the poor form and color on her $50-$70 fish. She sells bettas with wierdly shaped heads, plakat with terribly scalloped fin edges for imported show prices.

It actually does not. You can quarantine all new animals together. But when you introduce a new animal to the quarantine room with existing animals, the minimum two months of quarantine restarts regardless of how long the other animals have been in there. Make sure you know what you're talking about before you say stuff like that. Quarantine doesn't require multiple separate rooms. The best quarantine is actually just a separate building, but one separate room with no shared equipment between established animals and quarantine animals for minimum two months, preferably longer, is a proper quarantine.

Most reptile keepers, even the most well respected only have one quarantine area. It's pretty common among the entire hobby. You just have to restart the animals quarantine process if you introduce a new one in the room.

This is personally why I have two rooms, so that if I know I'm bringing a new one home, I move the one that's already started, so I don't have to extend that ones quarantine.

but what's "correct" is entirely an opinion between every keeper.

The chances of Emma getting another ball python or crested gecko are low so obviously a rainbow boa would be perfect since they're "trending" right now. So isopods and a boa would be a much better shipping deal for most people dont you think? She's also on some crazy animal purchasing spree that's outdoing even queen Taylor herself so it would be weird for her to not get another pet

Taylor Crane was just added to the petfest list. She has some pretty terrible pet care and promotes terrible things for her pets. God this is so awful.

To be honest the rate she's been getting birds lately is rather concerning but I do hope she does actually find homes for Nelly and Monty and Isis' owner gets back on their feet.

Not to whiteknight, and she definitely should be adopting, but that's part of the reason you go to breeders. Purebreds have health problems because of generations of inbreeding, but it's a much bigger problem in dogs bought from pet stores. She should be adopting a dog from a shelter, and I'm mutts are definitely typically healthidr because you're breeding out health problems, but at least she didn't find a dog at a pet store and buy it. With the dog and the multitude of other animals she won't disclose the amount of, though, we're definitely in hoarder territory.

No. 794310

I do think she should probably adopt but since she decided to shop she's at least doing it right.

No. 797747

I mean getting a dog probably isn't the best idea with her other pets but I have dogs and other animals and they all manage just fine. My dogs don't have a super strong prey drive and I've trained them and always supervise them but everyone is safe and healthy living together.

Also unpopular opinion but there's nothing wrong with going to a responsible breeder if you're looking for something specific in a dog. Temperament is very much genetic, it's definitely not just how you raise them that matters. Adopting a dog of unknown family history and unknown breed is taking a big chance because if the dog turns out not to fit in with the other animals she would have to get rid of it.

Also hybrid vigor is largely a myth and most dogs in shelters are from backyard breeders and strays which are often highly inbred. I got my former street dog genetically tested and she came back with a 34% inbreeding coefficient.That is Extremely high, much higher than you'd find from any responsible breeder. Good/reponsible breeders breed to improve their breed including health. So the whole health adoption argument is highly problematic.

Alright guys, following up on my previous conspiracy theory about Emzotic getting an Eurasier.
I've got too much time and googled around so I was almost sure that she got a dog from Heartland Eurasiers. These guys just announced their latest litter.

→ born on April 3rd, just like Emzotics puppy.
→ pictures fit to what she showed her viewers
→ Its a G litter. She stated that she currently needs to think of an "official" name that starts with G to match the litter.

Pretty sure the one with the green collar is hers.

Dog breeding nerd here to hopefully give some useful information. I did a bit of looking into the breeder and breed, here’s what I found.

Now, almost every breed has a national organization that defines breed standards and health testing. The United States Eurasier Club has Heartland listed as one of 7 trusted Eurasier breeders in the U.S. https://www.useurasierclub.org/2009/breeders/breeders.html

I tried to verify that the breeder is active in their health testing by going to the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals website. They host a database that allows breeders to submit all testing done on a dog. However, Eurasiers are not one of the breeds that are eligible for the database. There may be a private database, but I couldn’t find it.

So basically, while it appears that the breeder she chose is reputable, I couldn’t verify it myself as far as health testing.

Now, I don’t like Emzotic, but I have to hand it to her, it appears she did her research and picked a good breeder.

It’s not an ideal size but in his defense, he acknowledges this and claims these are temporary enclosures. They have multiple hides, bioactive soil, leaf litter etc. As temporary enclosures, these aren’t that bad.

My main gripe with AHK currently is that he hasn’t seen a vet for one of his rescues with a swollen face (which he thinks may be an abscessed tooth) “because it hasn’t gotten any worse,” bitch are you kidding, get to a vet!!!

It’s a well known fact that reptiles hide illness and may not show obvious signs of decline until it’s too late. He mentions that she’s only eaten once since the last update in February, and he’s trying to get her to eat more… well, she’d probably be more likely to eat if you took care of whatever’s causing her face to swell, huh.

Haven’t seen anyone mention this so I figure I would, which is: Pet Tubers not knowing how to use a fucking thermostat.

The recent “reptile room disaster” Emma Lynne posted a good example.

She’s using a CHEAP brand of thermostat on her wooden exoterra “rack” which is downright foolish and just asking for disaster. If you have this many animals, you cannot skimp out on a quality thermostat.

These cheap-o brands should only be used with single low wattage heat pads, and should only be used one enclosure at a time—which even then are prone to malfunction—and she has what looks to be an 8” wide and 6’ long strip of heat tape heating 3 enclosures per row. It’s unclear how many rows are being heated by this one thermostat. I hope it’s only one, but the inkbirds have two outlets so I wouldn’t be surprised if more.

These stats have no fail safe should anything malfunction, either, which is why using them for more than one animal is stupid. If it fails, you could end up with a pretty massive death count. Even with GOOD stats malfunctions happen, I cannot wrap my mind around risking the lives of this many animals at once by going the cheaper route.

A while back Reptilian Garden posted a video addressing issues with her “gecko condominium” where she openly admits she had no idea her thermostats even had probes/didn’t know how to use them and had to constantly manually adjust the temperatures, which is so baffling. Again, using a cheap brand. She admits it was stupid of her but I can’t get over what a huge oversight that is when you have as many animals as she does.

Why do these pet tubers not stop and think hey, maybe before buying more animals you should understand how to use the technology essential to their survival?

Yes it’s hard being in front of an audience and having mistakes on display for others to criticize, and yes mistakes DO happen, but consider… not speaking from a place of guidance or expertise until you understand the very basics…?

Am I crazy for being bothered by this? God DAMN

>>799881
That sucks. Haven’t seen the video but I hope he stops acquiring animals now that he can’t seem to prioritize upgrades or vet care when needed. Wishful thinking on my part probably.

No. 799929

Those Inkbird thermostats are actually pretty fucking fantastic & they really aren't that cheap. Agreed it should be 1x per enclosure but how are they shit? It is my 3rd thermostat for my Pacman frog and is the only one so far that has actually worked consistently.

No. 799937

>>799929
I hope you are trolling cuz yes, they are cheap. Warning, long post incoming, but I’ll explain.

They are $29.99 on amazon which is where most people get them. Compared to the Herpstat 1 at ~$115, it’s no contest what’s more affordable, but the price of a quality thermostat should be a drop in the bucket when someone is spending hundreds on new animals every month.

Fun fact about inkbirds, they are mass produced in China unlabeled, and then bought wholesale with the “inkbird” brand name attached. Same goes for Jumpstart.

Can they work? Yes. I’m not saying they’re rubbish, I use jumpstart thermostats on quarantine enclosures or in a pinch. Should they be relied on for the long-term…? Personally, I wouldn’t recommend it, at least not without backup.

And again, should not be used for multiple enclosures or racks- which is the main issue here. If you want to have a lot of enclosures on the same thermostat, you MUST invest in something like a Herpstat or VE. The attitude that it’s not necessary and that “the cheap ones work just as well” is foolish when it comes to that much heat and electricity.

Quality thermostats like Herpstat or Vivarium Electronics have a safety shut-off relay, so in case of failure, power will be cut. Some models have audible alarm systems, and higher end ones use proportional heat to precisely control output vs the basic on/off functionality of inkbirds, which has been linked to shorting out heat tape more quickly as well. The proportional stats are not fool proof, but they have much less of a failure rate- not to mention, come with warranty and replacement parts/fuses if needed.

These cheap brands have no fail-safe features (or unreliable ones) are often inaccurate (or become uncalibrated randomly) and DO fail, and sadly many animals have perished this way. I thankfully haven’t experienced this but witnessed plenty of tragic stories of racks overheating or what have you.

I wouldn’t hate on anyone with a few pets for using one, though. I have higher expectations for someone with 30+ or more and seemingly rapidly acquiring animals without an end in sight- if animal caretaking is what you center your life around and have built your entire career/image around, I think it’s your responsibility to go the extra mile on matters like this because people will emulate you, and this trend of young kids/adults skimping costs to get more animals NOW instead of proper setup/equipment FIRST is so troubling- like legit how long until someone’s house freakin’ catches on fire?

Sorry for several long posts- these thoughts have been boiling for a while. Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

If an animal with a physical ailment doesn't make it to the top of your animal to-do list, you have too many animals.

This is inexcusable. It would be better to just admit being in over his head, make a plan to get Saturn to a vet ASAP or find someone who can.

He’s not a vet no matter how many animals he has, and with how many have died in his care (do we have a death count on AHK yet?) he’s being blatantly neglectful. He doesn’t have the training or expertise to accurately assess the situation.

In the same post he talks about a fish that passed due to past ignorance (attached) so get a clue and stop acting like you got everything handled my dude!

It’s the same self-assured denial that almost every pettuber has. You are not experts, you are not veterinarians, you are not herpetologists. You’re a joe-shmoe with a lot of pets and a lot of impressionable viewers looking up to you. Take some damn responsibility and stop with the excuses and stop acting experienced beyond your capabilities.

It’s a necessary tool but it’s nothing to write home about like yeah, congrats you check the surface temps daily (supposedly, I doubt it lol) but that will hardly help in case of a power issue or stat failure.

Hope y’all got fire extinguishers too, cuz even professional zoological facilities are not impervious to fires. But wait, nevermind, instead of buying one how about another $500 snake.

One thing I also noticed odd about Emma's heating set up is that she is using a singular thermostat for a whole row of enclosures, including her rainbow boa. Rainbow boas need significantly cooler temperatures then most of her other snakes in that room so if he was on the same tape and thermostat that would mean he would have been sharing the same high temperatures. His tank was also the one burning and I also doubt it was due to water leakage

No. 800462

Care to explain that? I know that rainbow boas need less heat - but if not the water what would have caused it to burn up? (Right where the crack ect is).

I'm trying to learn about racking systems and how to do the heating to avoid this kind of trouble myself so learning all I can!

Water touching or sitting on the tape itself will just evaporate. You can try it at home. Only when water touches the electrical outlet or equipment would it pose a hazard but that would be strip wide. Because it was in that isolated area it was more likely due to too much heat + not enough ventilation + wood surface. I've been using heat tape on racking systems for 10 years and this has never occurred to me or anyone I know

No. 800797

So, because there was a 'wet' (damp set up) on top of it, and not enough ventilation (between the tank and the tape) it caused the burn? Am I understanding (Sorry English isn't my first language)

Would simply lifting the tank have fixed this? Or would a wire rack have a safer set up?

So many issues with that video.
That monitor is overweight. I'd speculate it's due to a diet of mostly rodents and not enough leaner protein sources. I don't care what she says she feeds him, the condition he is in says otherwise.
The humidity in his enclosure can't be high enough, his shed looks terrible. It's flaking off in tiny little pieces and that's not normal.
He has hella weird toes, so I'd also speculate insufficient lighting or supplementing in his diet.
He clearly hasn't been taken out of his enclosure very much otherwise he wouldn't have been so shellshocked going out there vs how confident he is in his enclosure. That's a huge problem because these reptiles are so intelligent they really need a lot of enrichment and stimulation, and time out of their cage.
Also her saying he's "territorial" in his enclosure has me thinking he is cage aggressive which could also be due to not interacting with him enough.
And yeah… he didn't go in the water himself. Not even once. There wasn't a single clip of him going in the water, just short clips of him frantically swimming for dry land.
If girl wants to use that atrium for enrichment she needs to actually put stuff in it. Some plants, tall and short, for cover & climbing opportunities would be a good start. You can't just toss your reptile in an empty ass atrium and be like "wOw EnRiChMeNt"
Seriously every new video she uploads is just full of problems. Girl needs to stop.

Her rabbits are fed an incomplete diet. She feeds a medium variety of veg a day and no pellets, but nowhere near enough veg to cover all the vitamins and minerals that pellets cover on a daily basis. She feeds pellets a couple times a week and the mix has nuts, seeds and other junk in it. Nuts and seeds are too high in protein for rabbits and are also potential choking hazards. It also seems she feeds carrot & banana daily/most days.

She said she doesn't properly understand supplementation for reptiles which is really concerning considering how many reptiles she has.

She is "soon" going to upgrade her chameleons enclosure because he keeps climbing the screen and falling so he needs glass. He has already ripped out nearly all of his nails. Why did she not fix this before he ripped out so many nails? Was she waiting for him to have a serious fall & injure himself?!

Her rats are separate due to hormonal aggression. They will need neutered.

She refills hamster food dishes before they are empty which encourages selective eating. Sshe even mentions that they like to pick their fav bits so she keeps them topped up so "they have the best".

Her rat chunk doesn't look too healthy. His eyes look watery and there is porphyrin weeping out which is a sign of stress or illness.

This chick knows NOTHING! I am so shocked at how little she knows yet she thinks she is so incredibly knowledgeable. Almost all of her animals have some sort of issue going on, she obviously has so many that they are just not getting the care and attention they need.

Kristen Lee Animal is becoming as problematic as TND.

No. 800976

>>800962

Agreed. I used to almost like her before this video. Her rabbits are eating too many of the wrong types of greens- they should mostly be getting lettuces or greens low in oxalates. Her diet now is probably causing bladder sludge and other urinary problems. And that pellet mix is probably the grossest I've ever seen. She judged the previous owner for having plain pellet mixes, when that's actually the best kind.

On top of that, it's idiotic that she's keeping her beardies on ground walnut shells. It's pretty much the worst substrate to keep them on and is much worse than sand because of the large grain size. Bearded dragons do not live on sand in the wild, yet her excuse was that it helps them to exhibit natural behaviors? And beardies should have salads every day, not every other.

And finally, she has two leopard geckos in one tank. This girl needs to get it together. I understand when teenagers make these kinds of mistakes, but she's a grown woman with a big audience.

She's convinced it might help with his skin condition. She said the hamster was tested negative for mites and her vet has no clue whats wrong with it. from the sound of it, she now thinks its just old age and she's using some "household items" to try and make it better. Besides the daily alcohol-lysterine-bath she also mentions using different oils on the fur. You should NEVER bath a hamster, not even with clean water. Their fur and skin is sensitive, so you should just provide an area with fine chinchilla sand/dust. They'll "bath" there and be totally fine. The lack of a sandbath might be the reason why the fur is this bad in the first place.

I know a lot about hamster care, and this is even worse than the standard american care (which to be frank is also often extremely bad due to lack of education and availability of products).
The food is wrong, theres not enough bedding, she's using different "decorations" that might be hurtful or poisonous if the hamsters chew on them (the dark wood, the plastic plants, the printed cardboard). I'm also seeing other things such as some entries for hide-outs being too small for syrians (they might hurt themselves when trying to access the houses with stuffed cheeks as they'll be too big then.)

This is painful to watch. Hamsters might live for a short time, but they're still living beings who deserve better.

Degloving as a defense is 100% a thing, and rats display this behavior. It's unfortunate, but rats induce degloving in some instances and it is a natural defense against predators. No, it isn't like a lizard dropping their tail, but they do it in nature when a predator grabs them by their tail to escape. There are other ways degloving injuries can happen, but some mammals like rats and mice can induce it themselves.

So about that afroherpkeeper.

>can’t afford to take rescued ball python with facial abscess to the vet

>has too many animals to list in undersized enclosures and had been promising upgrades for months
>basically promises upgrades with every upload but keeps acquiring animals
>drops $600+ on a trio of rare and delicate aquatic snakes that have advanced husbandry requirements

As of four days ago he took in an injured eastern hognose snake, which is receiving vet care, and supposedly he finally took Saturn the rescued ball python to the vet as well, but no updates on her.

It really bothers me that he got these marine snakes. Not only are they expensive, wild caught, difficult to keep in captivity (two have fungal infections likely due to the stress of shipping) but he has SO many animals in need of upgrades, more attention, better enclosures, etc, but he set that aside to get a species just because (in his own words) he thinks “they’re cool.” No other reason. He can’t be pressed to go to the vet for a ball python but willingly and openly drops $600 on these WC animals.

You shouldn’t get a highly advanced and rare species when your “entry level” species aren’t receiving the most basic care they deserve, such as a routine vet visit for a visible health issue. You shouldn’t be taking in rescues if you’re not financially secure enough to treat them, complain about living too far from a vet, or unable to give your pets the upgrades you’ve been promising for months going on a year.

We can debate if other pettubers can be considered animal hoarders, but AfroHerpKeeper is 100% a hoarder. Not being able to afford basic medical care for his animals while spending money on new ones constantly. Keeping hundreds of animals and allowing them to die of neglect. Letting their bodies literally rot until they are infested because he so rarely checks on them. Not providing the most basic care. His home must smell awful, like excrement and decay. This guy isn’t like other pettubers, buying animals for views and clout. He has a serious mental condition, an impulse to collect that he can’t control.

The saddest part is that nothing can be done. Hoarders rarely get help without intervention, and I doubt it will come.
Animal control is not equipped to deal with reptiles, most humane societies and such can’t provide for them whatsoever. They just house them and give whatever basic care they know and are willing to do until a rescue or foster takes them, or they’re euthanized. Can you imagine them trying to deal with a reptile hoarder? It’s so far out of their league- heck, it’s so far out of anyone’s league! I don’t think there is a single organization on earth that has the both legal rights and knowledge to deal with a reptile hoarding case.

Honestly the ‘best’ realistic option would be animal control being forced to step in due to eviction or something, and them taking all the animals and euthanizing them because again, animal control doesn’t have the resources to do anything else.

I’m glad he at least got his snakes to the vet, I guess he did have the money after all.

Ok, so for one, he is completely right in stating that he is just one guy from Texas. And that is why he shouldn’t be taking on more animals than he can handle.

He is trying to make himself seem like the victim who is being attacked over past mistakes. But many of his mistakes are very much current, and he is most definitely not the victim here. His animals are the victims. They are the victims of his hoarding that he has deluded himself into believing that it’s not. He is not a rescuer or an educator. Someone who truly cares for their animals does not keep animals in piss poor conditions because they can’t afford any better, because they can’t control their impulse to buy more.

And I sure hope that this public shaming has a mental impact on him. I hope it allows him to break from his delusions and realize that he’s a hoarder and needs help. No one is doing this because they like to make fun of others. We are doing it because we don’t like seeing animals suffer at the hands of a delusional teenager.

This really rubs me the wrong way. Just because we are depleting native habitats & species are in danger, does not give anyone the right to HOARD vast amounts of animals & deny them the care they need. He doesn't deserve a pat on the back for finally providing his animals with basic care (i.e veterinary treatment).

He is painting himself as the victim when the real victims here are snakes that are suffering from illness, kept in tiny 5 gal enclosures and his other animals that barely have their basic needs met.

This dude needs to slow down. What he's doing is not sustainable and I would argue he has gotten worse than TND - both in his victim complex & animal collecting tendencies.

If you love animals, give them the care they need so they can not only survive, but truly thrive. If you love them, give them enough space and enrichment so they feel safe & secure but can still move. If you love them, treat your feeders better so they can be happier & healthier before giving up their lives for your reptiles. If you love animals, help more with conservation & education - collecting hundreds of animals in improper conditions is NOT conservation or education. It is hoarding.

To add to that, it’s actually extremely common for animal hoarders to believe that they are doing a good thing and rescuing animals, when in reality they are just putting them into another bad situation. That’s part of what makes me think AfroHerpKeeper is a full blown hoarder, that delusion is so common in animal hoarders.

Does it even have a water bowl that doesn’t have substrate in it? Or a hide? How does this even provide enough room to thermoregulate? This would be ok for about a week but knowing AFK’s track record this snake will be in this tiny enclosure for months to come while he continues to bust himself with other animals and make excuses as to how this somehow covers “everything it needs.”

Also note how he compares it to the last enclosure it was in, as if that makes this ok just because it’s better in comparison. Newsflash, if you’re rescueing animals you should be striving for excellent care, not just being slightly better in comparison to HORRIBLE care

>>803092
I have almost a bad feeling he’s going to give into a lot more collecting impulses as a result of being criticized.

It’s true. I think AHK has potential but it’s going to be wasted on his compulsion to collect animals rather than his actual goals of conservation awareness and education. Does he do public outreach with his “embassador” animals? Does he even have time with how huge his collection has become?

If people want to help the situation tact and compassion is going to be necessary. He needs a dose of reality and raising awareness and ensuring he has to actually deal with the consequences of his actions will deliver that, but I also anticipate his hoarding to get worse before it gets better. He needs the pressure to clean up his act and know he can’t keep running from his problems with more animals. If he already has depression/anxiety issues he’s much more likely to develop a hoarding disorder and it’s something to take seriously.

I know lolcow is not a place for people to want to approach things compassionately but I think most people engaged in this thread actually care about animals and aren’t just in it for the milk.

Pic is of his pet room less than one year ago, where a human could comfortably walk in, and now, where it’s so jammed full of tanks and tubs it’d be hard to navigate. There’s no room for upgrades for the animals that need it. And of course this isn’t even all of it, his collection seems to be extending to the rest of his house and garage.

I love this fucking call for sympathy for Afroherpkeeper when no one gives a rat's ass about compassion for other pettubers' mental illness on here. Is it because… he's a guy? It's always 'this bitch'etc talking about the women. So stop fucking WKing Dan. I used to be a fan and appreciate him being open about his mistakes but he is also kinda full of himself.

It makes zero sense anyway, no-one can tell whether lolcow talking about him would have any effect or no. and he's already a hoarder?

It's because he's the only pettuber on this thread who shows signs of having a serious mental health issue related to his animal care. It doesn't excuse any of his actions, and no one is excusing it. And where the fuck did you get the idea that we feel bad for him because he's a guy??? If that's the case we should all be fawning over Tyler Ruggie, The King of DIY, and Brian what's-his-name. No one is white knighting, you moldy cucumber.

Not everyone is here purely to sling shit and call people bitches n cunts. This thread is frequented by a lot of anons who want to help animals involved somehow or spread awareness about how seriously bad this has gotten. Some kind of strategical approach is necessary when it comes to actual hoarders, AHK’s death rate far exceeds anyone else that I know of.

Yep, us not talking about it and spreading some sort of awareness/pressure is just shoving the issue under the rug. Happened with TND, people started to give shit only after the conversation moved from gossip sites to Twitter.

I'm not saying we should move to Twitter or wherever else, but simply forgetting he exists because 'hur dur he's a hoarder' is not the way to go around this at all.

Us shitty anons have no influence on the dude either way, if he's a hoarder actual professionals need to interfere.

Oh okay. Maybe on this thread but TND was so fucked up she's literally a drug addict. But she's an annoying bitch right? So we can drag her and not Dan? I know this isn't her thread and I'm not here to WK her. Just trying to point out why should we be so nice to him?

I think you're misunderstanding. As far as I can tell, no one here wants to be nice to him. It's not "Oh the poor bby has a mental illness we shouldn't be mean to him uwu" It's "This guy has a serious mental illness and it is causing his animals to suffer, what is the best way to go about dealing with this?" I've commented a lot on the situation and frankly I think he's an awful person who would rather indulge his delusions than wake up and treat his animals properly.

Great news! Marlene is getting ANOTHER baby bird, after a tearful video where she justifies it by talking about how she “deserves” a baby bird after rescuing so many.

Kind of fucked up how the desire for clicks feeds into the mental process behind animal hoarding

Brian got an albino savannah monitor hatchling, claimed it was one of the rarest lizards in the world and then posted that it died 2 days later. This has to be some sort of record.

While I'm no fan of Brian's… Hatchling reptiles are incredibly fragile. And the monitor didn't settle in at all. Babies do die all the time and failure to thrives do happen.

I wouldn't be surprised if the stress of the flight killed the animal. Which of course is the fault of the buyer (brian) and the seller. As the animal wasn't ready to be shipped like that.

That said - it happens. I don't like Brian, at all. I don't like how he keeps 98% of his animals, but this is REALLY nitpicky… and honestly sometimes these animals just aren't meant to make it. (Having raised and hatched geckos before - you can be doing everything right and still have one pass away. It freaking sucks… but it does happen.)

Hatchlings ARE incredibly fragile, that's why he should have let the poor thing put on more size. Lori even asked him how established the monitor was before he bought it, and he insisted it was big enough to ship. Lo and behold, it wasn't.

I've been following Marlene for a bit, it seems she has gone off the deep-end and started hoarding birds and other animals after losing her bird Picasso.

It's like she's doing it out of guilt moreso than a deep desire to have more birds. She got the kitten and another bird (Blue) for similar reasons, and a now a baby bird stating that it reminds her of Picasso. She needs to work through her guilt rather than continuously get new birds to justify the "wrong" she felt she did to Picasso.

She's not a bad pet owner though and does love and treat her parrots well.

I have no doubt that Marlene has the experience, time and money for the birds she gathers. I do think she has certain birds which are not meant for the style of care she provides, and that her followers have blown so much smoke up her arse that she genuinely believes she is the BEST home who DESERVES these animals and they DESERVE to live with her because no one else would provide the level of care and attention she does.

Hopefully this baby moustache parakeet will be the last addition for a while. I just want her to calm down/actually process her grief over losing Picasso instead of getting birds to fill the void.

Yeah I agree she’s a good parrot owner overall, she just needs to dramatically slow down parrot acquisition.

I’m worried that as this channel becomes more of a real job for Marlene that she feels the need to acquire birds/make drama to keep the $$$ coming.

I'm not disagreeing. But with the way hatchling reptiles are - there is always a chance. And frankly - if he hadn't been willing to buy it then and ship it then there is a possibility that the vendor would have sold it to someone else.

I had a similar issue with a vendor for cresties. She shipped the animal at 3 grams ( across Canada) and because of the mutation of the gecko it was highly sought after (and hadn't been seen in my area/or any of the shows I frequented for sale yet).

I wanted that mutation in my collection - the price was right, the only knock I had was that she was selling it at 3g and wanted it out (weather permitting but it was spring at the time so no worries).

It worked. I still have that animal. they settled in and ate immediately. But I've also lost a snake and a lizard to literally 20 mins of travel and them not settling into the environment (even if it was racking or a naturalistic cage).

Hatchlings are hard man… and a lot of people will not hold an animal until they are larger. One could say that you shouldn't purchase from those people, but sometimes (like in my case or I'm assuming Brians) it may be the only opportunity you had at getting that specific animal.

And again. I do not like Brian. At all. I don't like his care, I don't like his cages ect. But hatchlings are unpredictable.
