- 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.
- Recently got a puppy.

- 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 his tegu to the

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

Maria's Zoo

- Smokes weed in the same room as her pets and defended Taylor Nicole Dean when she smoked around her geckos. Claims the smoke doesn't linger.
- Claims to be a rat expert after one semester on them in school.
- “Rescued” rats from the feeder bin. One turned out to be pregnant and had two babies. Maria had them out playing with them shortly after they were born. One baby
died. Mom and babies were kept in a glass aquarium. Recently moved mom and surviving baby back into the cage with the other rat.
- Constantly begs for money on social media to pay for her animal hoard, but has money for hair dye, make-up, video games, and other frivolous things.
- Claims she cannot keep a job due to her mental health but that it doesn't stop her from taking care of her animals.

Brady, you are an idiot and an enabler. Anyone who gives this much money expects something in return

No. 831658

Thank you for the thread anon! I’ve found Maria to really embody a few of the problematic pettuber behaviors.

Hey, at least she finally bought her rats a decent cage with the money.

No. 831659

Does not make the means she got it right no matter what good it did. The idea is that if she cannot provide the means to care for them properly on her own, she should not have them. She can’t keep begging for money over every little thing.

No. 831661

Oh trust me I hate how pettubers rely on their, often young, fan base for money. I am glad the poor animals have a better enclosure, but she took a page from Taylor’s book, and “rescued” some feeders to pat herself on the back.

No. 831662

Definitely shouldn’t go without and be stuck in an improper housing situation but the way she went about it was wrong. Even if she can’t get a job and needs them to “help her depression” she should do what’s best for them. They aren’t toys. They’re living beings that deserve better than she can provide.

No. 831670

Emma sampson should have been added to the top header. Along with some other pettubers in the last thread (ie taylor crane, paul cuffaro, nick and paul..etc). The information there is outdated and almost invalid and some people are almost never topics of conversation anymore like maddie smith

She needs to go inpatient somewhere or at least get this taken care of. Yikes

No. 831926

She just went to the hospital last week for help, they clearly didn’t find her in need of inpatient, usually you have to be threatening suicide or self harming for them to make you go inpatient. But shes been talking about waiting for a call from the hospital she went to so maybe she’s on a waiting list for something?

In Emzotic's latest video about her puppy's diet, she showed her kitchen area and there are at least two decent-sized tanks (seemingly fish tanks) on the goddamn kitchen counters. Is there a single area of this woman's house that isn't loaded with animals? The cellar is apparently full of animals we know nothing about, and every other room she ever shows is stocked floor to ceiling. I virtually cannot imagine how only she and her creepy husband give all these animals and their enclosures the attention they need. They really disturb me.
They clearly have a lot of money though. This raw food plan her puppy is on is $13 a DAY (so close to $400 a month?), and I'm sure that doesn't even include shipping, which has to be expensive because it's next-day and packed with ice packs.

I hope Maria gets help, I really do. I also know with mental health problems it can be tempting to turn to animals for emptional support. However it is very clear she is not in any state to be caring for the number of animals she currently has.

I really don’t get how she mistakes genuine concern for a challenge. Like no matter what she does in life, having a million pets to take care of would just make it impossible for her to have that job she keeps whining about not getting. She’s just going in circles with it and enabling herself to stay where she’s at.

Whats she going to breed him with? Her feeder rats?

No. 832339


Maria I know you read here: don’t even think about it.
Do you know the genetic background of your Marten rat? What female are you planning on breeding him with, because none of your current females have genetics you should be breeding and you’re certainly not in a position to be getting anymore rats.
Having a large enough cage for your current rats finally, please just focus on them, instead of getting more rats to fill a cage you couldn’t afford to buy yourself. Breeding to ‘sell’ the babies and make a profit is not the right reason to breed, nor is breeding just so your friend can have rats, please direct her to other rats she can adopt instead. Breeding is difficult and you’ve already experienced that first hand losing a baby, it can get a lot worse than that. It can and is costly, time consuming and you need a lot more than a single critter nation to do it properly, so please just don’t - focus on your current rats and giving them a good life before bringing any others into the world.

Keep playing along, Maria. We think it’s funny anyway

No. 832871

I feel like if she was really studying veterinary medicine she would use the correct terms. Also veterinary medicine is as it sounds - the study of medicine for animals. You are not taught about husbandry because that is not a vets job. This girl is so deluded and uneducated it's actually sad.

She’s got photos in scrubs tagged at her college. She needs to stop tagging her locations. I looked it up they have a vet tech major. Also her male rats came from her school so she’s in some veterinary field.

No. 832901

Even as a vet tech, she should have a handle on basic animal care and what she doesn’t know she could literally google or ask someone who knows what they’re talking about. In 2019, finding information isn’t hard

No. 832934

There is a big difference between studying veterinary medicine and studying to become a veterinary technician. She obviously knows that and that is why she is so vague - so people think she is studying to become a veterinarian. Irresponsible imo. Again, vet rechs don't learn about husbandry and what they do learn is very vague and often outdated. Spending a whole semester on rat husbandry is an outright lie. I studied Animal Care in college and we would never spend that much time focused on a single animal because then we'd have no time to cover other course material. She just makes shit up to suit her narrative, much like TND. Trash.

No. 832944

Does she have any self-awareness? Complaining about having no friends and not having time for a job while sitting on her computer refreshing this website all day…hot damn.

You're right honestly. Think about how much validation she gets even knowing people think about her at all. All the people we talk about in this thread think they're goddamn celebrities because they're being noticed, when really we only care about their poor animals and them receiving the care they deserve.

No. 832955

The thing is half of this Maria stuff isn't as much about her animals as it is about her not having money and being ill. I understand that it relates to her animal care but there's only so many posts you need before you get the idea imo.

No. 832957

lol, but Em is not that creepy. Maybe danny

No. 832960

It’s the same thing with TND and Jonny and all the other things surrounding it. People still give that as much attention as it needs in order for them to be held accountable, as Maria should be also. Her actions do impact her pets and if she wants to be slandered around the Internet as a poor caretaker and an all around not good person then she can definitely continue to say things that make people believe that. She wants attention she can have it, because it only hurts her in the end

Remember when she made someone feel bad about asking for money to help pay for their sick dog's medical bills, and said they shouldn't have pets if they can't afford it? And now she's literally BEGGING for money for pets she shouldn't even have, because she can't afford it lol what a hypocrite.

Honestly it amazes me that her rat pup is still alive after losing the first one, and that her crested geckos have their tails, aren’t they notorious for dropping them over the tiniest stressor? Didn’t TND say her friend touched hers and hers just popped off? Not to WK because she’s obviously a straight up mess, but she has to be doing something right, right? Most breeders I’ve seen can’t even keep half their geckos tails before they ship them out.

The survival of the solo kitten is credit to the maternal instincts of the doe. It isn’t an example of Maria’s understanding or credibility - that she thinks this experience and access to a lab bred dumbo male is all she needs to start her own rattery is ignorant at best.

Regardless of her specific major - she’s studying the field of veterinary and should fucking do better.

She should really practice what she preaches because she’s the one who jumped on Jessica, who didn’t even say anything to or about her specifically. She involves herself in other people’s conflicts and then gets mad when it doesn’t go the way she wants it to. Like no one needed your help there Maria.

skeptical about how much of the interest in her is real considering she was caught self posting screenshots in the last thread and its obvious by how much she inserts herself into drama that shes a massive attention whore. shes a literal nobody. 300 subscribers on youtube and ‘30k’ on instagram but most of her photos don’t get more than 200 likes? could be wrong but it feels extremely fishy that all of a sudden there is so much interest in this person that next to no one has ever heard of.

No I don’t think so, she wouldn’t be that obvious, the one time she was caught it was a slip up from a screenshot. Her family seems there for her just fine she was posting about going to the park with her mom. Just feels like someone trying to stir the pot.

I came across this thinking I could add to it because there’s so much about Maria that you guys don’t even know. You could look into it, it’s been a thing for a while now. Her cousin says she has over 50 fake accounts of Maria blocked on instagram. This is one of the screenshots that was attached to the Facebook post

So trust me, no one is sending her money except herself unless they're for puss pics.

Maybe I was mistaken, but I thought this thread was about pettubers. This Maria girl has less than 400 followers on youtube, and I could barely find her youtube or twitter just searching with the search bars. While her animal care is bad, she's not exactly influencing anyone with it. The fact that she even grabbed anyone's attention at all is astounding.

ANYWAYS, good ol' "animal educator" Emzotic got another kookaburra. She did make a big effort in the video to say she doesn't endorse them as pets, but her whole act of "we're getting this animal for education purposes" is really starting to grind my gears.

If she’s enough for bigger pettubers to notice like Emzotic and TND who both follow her on twitter and insta then it’s enough for me to hold her to her shitty pet keeping.

Also emzotic needs to release a list of her animals already this is crazy, her house has to reek from everything she has hoarded in there for “work”

didn’t watch the last 5 mins but basically her chameleon had gout that was misdiagnosed as a bone infection. vets gave the wrong medication which ended up making it worse. she was driving every other day for an hour just to get him injected meds bc she wasn’t comfortable doing it on her own since he was very small. he had an open sore on his tail which they ended up just amputating 2 inches off the end of his tail without her consent, which later healed and then spontaneously reopened. she took him to the vet and had him euthanized.

sad as fuck. no idea who she is as i don’t follow this thread but it must be so frustrating to get the wrong diagnosis and wrong treatment for something that could’ve been potentially helped. poor dude sounds like he suffered a lot from their mistake

No. 834660

samefag from above but i should mention she didn’t just willy nilly have him killed off or anything like that after the amputation. she started giving the proper meds, and heavily adjusted his enclosure to accommodate his handicaps, but it was too late and some gruesome shit happened (the tail wound randomly reopening and his swollen leg skin cracked open) and was definitely in shit tons of pain. had to be the only humane option at that point.

No. 834855


That is genuinely heartbreaking. All too often vets will misdiagnose or provide the wrong treatment. A vet injected my ferret with Baytril even though it is caustic and should be used orally only, I was so pissed but the vet was reported and held accountable. Emma should do the same; report the vet because that is atrocious malpractice. Poor George.

No. 834879

I came here just for this after I saw her video which I didn't watch because honestly I just can't stand her lately.

Considering the 'rescue' was all about how he will be kept alone and whatever it's a bit… eh. Like I highly doubt she's taking birds from one educational visit to the next cause that seems like a lot of stress, even with rotations.

Was the vet a specialist in exotics? I find often that a lot of the 'general' vets are pretty shit at caring anything beyond your typical house pet. Obviously I understand that not everyone has to an exotic vet but it seems like this went on for a bit so she had some time to reach out to the nearest specialist vet.

Is she going to breed them like she bred her doves?

Did you know that some free flyers starve their birds to gain full control over them?

This is a malicious practice and a crime against birds. It’s very common in the free flight community. Just no one talks about it.
My book is the first of its kind and it talks about the dirty little secrets that people do to have full control over birds.
It’s outrageous and shocking.
My book will change the free flight community and will help a whole new young generation to rise up and fly birds safely and stop clipping them.

If you read my book you will know that I learn free flying via skype for $300.

Now with my book you can learn free flying for only $9.99 and don’t need anyone to teach you.

You are your own birds trainer and I am giving you all the knowledge you need to know HOW TO TRAIN YOUR PARROT without starving them or abusing them!

The receipt in my book is love, trust, bond and practice, practice, practice.

I finally watched Carolin von Petzholdt and I know nothing about pet birds, even I could see her dumb ass was doing shit wrong but more so then that, being a first time viewer, after seeing her name here a lot.

I understand why dumbasses (like myself) can stumble across her videos and think, "Oh this nice lady" especially if you click on an live stream when she's in her house.
she seems so nice, thankfully I know she abuses her birds and is an idiot, but it's easy to come into these youtubers thinking, "oh my god, they are so nice and informed they love their animals"

I felt the same about Emzotics, then I learned everything about her bizarre self posting, how she seemed to be very insecure about being in her 30's, her cringy "look how better Em looks then Taylor".
You learn QUICKLY in these threads that so many of these people aren't what they seem.

No. 835767

She said he’s “prescribed” but yeah the vest is a bit much it’s such a pass off for a service dog vest, that’s what people assume when they see vests on a dog. Why do people take ESAs as such a joke. She just wanted a dog she could take to conventions and show off she couldn’t even rescue a dog she BOUGHT one. There are puppies in rescues out there she could’ve rescued from if a puppy fit best.

I genuinely think Marlene is trying to stay on her good side so she can change Carolins practices from the inside out. But it's getting out of hand - the stupid twat is now accusing an entire community of people of starving their birds in order to push sales so she can make money. Accusations that are, frankly, completely false and unfounded. Can't she get into legal trouble for that? Especially considering it clearly includes Bird Tricks who are running a business. Libel?

I find it so ironic that these PetTubers always say "don't get a pet unless you can afford vet bills!!!" yet they are always the first to start crowd funding for vet bills they can't afford cos they have 50 other animals to feed. At least Emma had some integrity and admitted to monetizing her videos in order to pay off the vet bills. Why can't other PetTubers do the same thing?

If you go back, Maddie also set a go fund me when she tried to breed her birds and the baby was very sick. Only she was complaining about being unable to afford a $500 vet bill. At least Tyler puts out content.

She could have just as easily adopted a puppy from a shelter and trained it. Or fostered a shelter dog to get an idea of it’s behavior. She has so many animals already that she’s definitely neglecting for the new puppy. She has ferrets, a bunny, two skunks, doves, grinchy and two kookaburras. Do you really think ALL those animals get hours outside their enclosure daily?

No. 837205

I understand that she has a ton of animals and we don't actually know how many she has. But that's the thing, she needs a dog that isn't going to have issues from the get go because it's a risk. She even explains it in her video (towards the end) that she has 3 children in her home and doesn't want any surprises, so getting a breeder that has puppies socialised from a reasonable age to young children is great.

Could be that the shelter dog has behavioral problems or they learned how much of a risk shelter dogs can be so they're going the breeder route now.

No. 838274

There's no service animal registry, at least in the United States. Legally they're just defined as a dog (or miniature horse) that's been trained to perform at least one task to assist a disabled person.
Any registry of service animals (or emotional support animals) is a scam.
I'm sure she's just using the dog for attention+clout but it would probably be hard to get her on any legal charges for that.

No. 838308

It's not illegal unless she's asked by a proprietor if he's a service dog and she says yes. Any dog can wear a vest. You can say any dog is working.

No. 838444

Right? Mutts don’t look as “professional” and “trainable” as a purebred trophy dog, and are more likely to be questioned so I’m sure this was part of her decision in buying over adopting.

No. 838447

See, I agree with her decision to shop when it came to her kids/other animals and the lack of experience which would make it harder for her to manage existing issues. The problem comes if you basically just want a toy to drag around and show off which is what this looks like. At that point you did just want a designer pet.

No. 838468

She isn’t claiming her dog is a service animal. She’s using the dog as an ESA - Emotional Support Animal. They are two completely different things. There is no registry for ESAs, you just must have a “prescription” letter from a certified mental health professional and they absolutely can wear vests when “working”. The only privileges an ESA gets is being able to fly with their owner and landlords not being able to discriminate, unlike service animals that perform specific tasks for different disabilities and can go pretty every where.

It's sort of ironic she's calling others petty and essentially unprofessional for 'bashing' them when she swept her own little drama here under the rug as quickly as possible.

As for 'bashing' I think that's harsh from her. People seemed to be more aware of how her language could have an effect on uneducated people than she did and when they did try to explain it a bit more her reply seemed a bit sarcastic.

Everyone's the bad guy but Emozotic, because she said sorry that means everyone needs to move on and not remember how crazy she acted.

The reason people bring it up is because em's so judgy, whiny, always making herself the victim or the savior.What she did says a lot about her character period. She may be on another site.

She acts like she's perfect.

A lot of hot keepers don't like him because he free handles his venomous snakes. Even if he tells viewers not to copy him, it's setting a bad example and poses an unnecessary risk that can affect the entire hobby if an accident happens and he's killed by his snakes. Responsible hot keepers don't free handle and kiss their cobras.

Also, in one video somewhere he showed that he had a quarantine rack for a new hot (I think it was a cobra?) set up in his kitchen. Just a regular plastic rack, in the non-snake-proofed kitchen with a dog walking around. Super dangerous and possibly illegal, I'm not sure what Florida's regulations are but I know in some places that would not be permitted. The rest of his snake room is perfectly safe and up to code.

No. 838877


Depending on the training method you use, it is good to keep pups on harnesses/leads while going through training. It makes corrective training much easier and also helps de-sensetize them to having a lead/collar/harness on, which prevents them from associating those things with walks/vet trips etc.

Maria chimed in. I thought it was important since she played victim so hard when all the drama came out. Wonder what made her forgive Em? Also I’m curious why they had to derail the original topic of Ems trophy dog, because I personally don’t care about her past drama at this point while I’m here watching her make service dogs look bad. She might not claim directly he’s a service dog but that’s what people think when you tell them your dog is working when it’s not, you take it everywhere like a toy, and slap a vest on it. It’s offensive to those out there that actually need service dogs, and pay for highly trained dogs.

Why do they keep acting like everybody has to forgive Emzotics just because she sent out some letters? Em said some really shitty things about these people, she's not entitled to their forgiveness.

I was enjoying how little Maria posts there were since she got caught self posting. Maria probably forgave her because she’s also obsessed with lol cow.

Maria was one of Ems targets, she has every right to forgive her as everyone else does not to. Maria’s position was different though as a fan and not a friend of hers so I can see why she would forgive Em quicker than everyone else. She’s getting attention from Em, positive attention, and I’m sure Emzotic knows this and is using it to her advantage. I’m sure she’s the only one to actually forgive her since no other pettuber has really spoken about it or her since.

Anyone else watch AHK’s new “house tour” he posted on IG?

The former reptile room is overcrowded and wouldn’t be big enough for more than one person to comfortably get around in. It seems hazardous, it’s wall-to-wall enclosures. He has no room to upgrade any animals even if he wanted to, although his hoard is spilling over to his entire house now.

Some things I noticed:
1. His vision cage stack has several water bowls with low water and algae growing, these snakes have not gotten fresh water for a LONG time.

2. His Quaker parrot cage is barren and looks filthy. Why don’t these birds have more perches/toys? I went back to watch his older parrot vid and there is such a stark and sad contrast between now and then. What the hell happened? Did he use their enrichment for other animal enclosures and never give them anything new? Did he not replace things they chewed up? It’s inexcusable and cruel to keep intelligent parrots in such a grossly under-stimulating cage.

3. Wire wheel for his short tailed opossum. In the comments he says it’s “on the list” of things to get, yet another example of acquiring animals without being fully prepared. Wheels are not even expensive. And he plans on breeding them?
4. These are more nitpick but a snapping turtle in what can’t be more than a 110quart storage bin with no shelter/hiding spots and a shipping box full of what appears to be insects, including a vinegaroon in the kind of plastic cup you sell animals in at expos. Is it alive? Why is it not in an enclosure?

Lol other than sit and a couple parlor tricks, that dog is not trained at all. Every other post from Em is about him chewing up or biting things he’s not suppose to. You would think she would have a handle on that with all the free-roaming animals and kids around, not to mention how much of an “experienced dog trainer” Em used to be. That dog is going to attack something before it’s full grown.

No. 840016


Did you break your neck reaching that far? Puppies chew on things and it is something they will do, regardless of training, until they grow out of it. An otherwise obedient, well trained puppy is not at risk of attacking someone just because they chew on things they're not supposed to.

No. 840070

Leave it/drop it should be one of the first commands for a primitive breed dog in a house full of free-roaming prey animals. It’s not about puppies behaving badly- it’s the lack of training Emzotic is obviously not doing, and the risk it’s posing for her other animals and now the public with her claiming it’s an emotional support animal.

Iirc he said that he breeds spiders and just makes sure the parents he breeds don't have a lot of wobble, so of course if he's making money off them then he's gonna be for breeding them.
Another thing that really threw me off and made me doubt him is his fire skink video, he claims in the video that they can be great beginner pets but like.. they're not? I have one and everyone who has one/wants one should know before they get one that they're burying skinks and can be very skittish so you will most likely never see them, unless you're able to work with them and even then it's a crapshoot. I only get to handle my girl once a month when I have to dig through the enclosure to find her, otherwise you only see them when you tong feed them-if they're not too shy for that. I just think he sometimes just states the best parts of a reptile (Calm, friendly, won't bite, etc.) And doesn't explain that not every one of that type of reptile is like that?? I think it's kind of irresponsible bc someone will watch a video and be like woah! I want a fire skink or whatever and then get one and they literally never ever see it bc that's just how they are??

yeah that's another thing, i feel like he kind of overrates/only states the good about certain reptiles even though there'll be another species that almost everyone knows is actually easier to care for or more calm etc and he'll give that one a lower rating. if it was just presented as his opinion there'd be no issue but he presents it as a 100% accurate simple fact.

I'm not that opposed to scaleless snakes as long as they don't have any issues like the spider ball, for example.

No. 848832

Scaleless snakes generally need a lot of help shedding and can be easily injured by rough objects in their terrarium. They need increased humidity to help with their shedding issues and overall moisture bc they dry out so quick, but too humid and they can get respiratory issues just like a normal snake. I'm not exactly stoked that people are continuing to breed them, I personally feel they have just as many issues as spider tbh. People have been down this road with beardies before, "silkybacks" are the same way.

No. 848842

I feel like any unusual mutation like this can't be good in reptiles/snakes since look how bad it's going for cats and dogs. It doesn't take much irresponsible breeding and pet tubers seem especially good at only fueling their personal whims

Do you have a reference for this because when I was looking into many places stated that scientist studied whether they needed more moisture and it was determined they didn't and that they didn't loose moisture any faster then normal snakes. It is an older study and it possibly could be flawed or outdated.

I am quite curious about scaleless snakes mainly because I've not found many people who talk about their experience with them.

rats don’t have a smell if you spot clean daily, like you should. I don’t want to spam with screen shots, but it’s really odd. maria is always retweeting taylors posts. she always is kissing taylors ass, saying taylor is free to dm her. I wouldn’t be surprised if this girl makes taylor a little uncomfortable. she is kinda a crazy fan who is trying to be a “I have depression and anxiety because it’s trendy” pettuber. I doubt taylor wants such a copy cat in the community. It annoys me that she lights incense and (tinfoiling) probably smoke weed about her rats. why does she talk about going to the dispensary so much ? she want to have the druggy appearance just like taylor. I just hope she stops breeding her rats, and takes better care of them. also stop exploiting all the weirdo guys in her instagram comments, that send her money. Maria is always taking photo with her tongue out, my tinfoil is it’s because she like all the creepy comments she gets on them. I wish pettubers would stop have “illnesses” that they clearly don’t have. Most people with those conditions don’t constantly tweet about it. Most people with anxiety have anxiety about people finding out their condition. especially social anxiety, and a few pettuber claim to have. Sorry for annoyed rant

yea i know. every animal works with reinforcement and punishment (not necessarily by the owner).

Pretty sure this might be Maria from a another device. Because how is this not about her animals lol ?

Yes people can be mad about you be high around your animals. I’m all for smoking a joint after a hard day at work. But I do not support handling baby rats, hedgehogs, reptiles hatchling, etc when your high af. People do stupid stuff high all the time, why even risk it ? And vaping still is NOT okay around animals. They can’t make that choice if you vape around them or not.

Also I love how she assumes I am broke, because I don’t value my phone brand or phone in general. Sorry that owning the next iPhone from a big company is not on my goal ? If you can all it that ? If even funny coming from someone who lives with their parents, can’t afford college, and owns animal that they can’t feed. Fuck she asks for money from strangers to feed her animal, pay for her medical card. At least I don’t ask for handouts. Fun fact medical cards areeeee not even expensive. ($50-$75) even if it was a medical issue, why wouldn’t her parents pay for it right away ? Alssooooo why does she need the thc ? Why doesn’t she just get cbd if it’s just for medical purposes. Then she would not be putting any baby animals at risk, because cbd just helps with pain and doesn’t get you high. I know cause I use it.

He can get away with using a powerfilter if he adds some plants or something to baffle the current. Better than the opposite of thinking they don't need filters like a betta. But no matter what filter he sticks with, he needs to add plants (real or fake I don't care, just get some) and a bigger hide. They can get just up to or just shy of a foot long.
If he's still only feeding it bloodworms it's not the best but not really the worst either. Ideally you'd give a mix of bloodworms and earthworms. Only giving one or the other isn't unheard of, though, some lotls can be picky eaters. Mine absolutely refuses bloodworms and only wants earthworms. It's like a kid that doesn't want vegetables.

i swear to god every pettuber has their head up their ass. i just started watching this person's videos (WinslowThaDragon i mean) and her best friend who is apparently even learning professionally about fish in college was talking about bettas and she said bettas only live 6 MONTHS or 2 years MAXIMUM ever, and so people naturally corrected her friend in the comments and her level of snarky, overly defensive responses turned me off a lot lol. she got pissed and said "well she's my best friend so i don't want to hear anyone say anything about her and she doesn't study bettas so.. whatever" to multiple people. if she doesn't know anything, why is she saying totally false stuff? i like some of her videos though. but i literally cannot find a single pettuber who just simply owns and discusses animals without either being negligent, borderline abusive, or psychotic/rude/overly defensive and spreading misinformation.

Holy shit, I quit coming to this thread after that stupid Maria chick got outed self posting multiple times because it was beyond obvious every post was her, even before that. I just skimmed through this thread thinking it would have gotten better but somehow it has devolved into nothing BUT her. No one gives a flying fuck about this girl, no one cares about her tracing her own rat pictures, no one cares about her stupid family drama, no one cares about anything to do with her. Honestly is there any way we could just implement a ban anytime she's brought up? It's clear no one cares except her and that she wants nothing more than for us to talk about her so she can feel relevant. She's some loser with no followers who thrives off this shit, she doesn't even have a reach.

No. 856924

There was already a ban implemented for her self posting, the newer posts aren’t from her, at least not the ones that show the old iPhone OS, tinfoil is the family drama was her cousin, some of us saw her bald selfie before she deleted it. She left as soon as she got called out. It’s fine to focus on marias animal care because its atrocious and she shouldn’t have as many animals as she has for someone without a job. And she’s irresponsibly breeding rats and lying about it. There’s no way her marten is not the father of that litter.

She's been posted here before but I don't think this video's been put up.

No. 858822

So I've been reading online about snake morphs/breeding and I found that a lot of breeders won't breed rat and corn snakes together. i tried to google this to but I couldn't find much so - why are rat/corn scaleless snakes (as those bred by Snake Discovery) okay?

No. 858833

I'm pretty sure rat/corn are a naturally occurring hybrid.
Many breeders are against hybridizing any species. Honestly I don't think its black and white issue. There ares some species that do fine as hybrids and some that do awful.
The real question is whether the hybrids can live long healthy lives and reproduce without complication. Which considering snake discovery is breeding rat/corn hybrids together and not breeding a rat snake to corn snake, I think its safe to say they can at least reproduce properly.

Whether you want to support that practice is up to you, I haven't seen any actual proof yet that there is an issue with it. Though I'm always open for someone to present that proof.

No. 858984


I was subscribed to her for less than a month lol. I really like watching dog grooming. But then I realized she was kind of mean to a lot of the animals she worked on. I would be upset if my groomer was like that. And all she does is shave the animals! Like I get that she's a veteran and she's probably used to buzz cuts but there's more styles than shaven, woman. Also she does not take criticism well at all, very "I can do no wrong" attitude

No. 859472

She has a video of shaving a cat too but from what I saw it could have probably just been brushed out. Usually shaving cats or heavily matted dogs is really the last resort when all else fails - unless obviously requested by the owner.

What a mess.

No. 859550

Yeah I remember that video, I felt so sorry for the cat. It 100% could have been brushed out. To be honest, most of the matting she points out is just impacted undercoat and could be brushed out pretty easily.

Yeah I used to watch her too, before I quickly realised her attitude and practice were terrible. I honestly don't think she knows how to do anything but a 'shave' on an animal. Like there are plenty of good groomers out there who will trim fur (out of dogs eyes etc.) without shaving the whole animal. She also often uses her clients as an excuse "Well they don't want to brush their dog". Sure but that doesn't make shaving the animal the best option… maybe teach them how to brush the dog? Set up regular grooming appointments with them?

More examples of bloody or marked up ears, also did she ever take the one rat with the eye problem to the vet or is she continuing to claim it’s just half blind? I’m amazed someone even wanted these babies from her, terrible genetics, their ears are all tattered or bloody. And this girls in school to be a vet tech!? Yikes.

No. 860766

It could easily be the early signs of mange mites on their ears although some of it looks more like porphyrin staining to me.

Rats tears and nasal mucus is red because of porphyrin. In situations where rats are not cleaning themselves properly you can see staining on their fur and ears. This can happen in older rats or rats kept in dirty conditions.

Rats will also fight and scrap with one another and the ears is a favourite target for getting tugged on and bitten. So some of that could be scabs.

I've taken in rats from all sorts of conditions and you'd be surprised at how much a little bath cleans up their fur and ears if they've been kept in dirty cages.

From these photos I would lean heavily towards staining and small play wounds. And would clean and separate the rats into groups accordingly (to avoid any one rat being bullied too much) to avoid any further injury… not that I think she'll do that.

"I'm a vet tech major therefore I have more knowledge and insight than anyone who could possibly be criticizing me on the internet" I'm a psychology major but that doesn't mean I'm a hub of knowledge that can spew any theory or research or whatever off the top of my head or have the right to give anyone advice on mental illness or be immune to criticism of how I understand things I'm taught in my courses. Like being a vet tech major kind of means nothing. A different example would be one of my good friends, he's in school right now getting a Ph.D in quantitative biology(herpetology being his main focus) and has spent the past almost decade doing published academic research on lizards, one image he came up with himself is now the cover for a respected biology research journal. If I asked him how to set up an enclosure and properly care for a lizard, even one he's written pages of research about, he wouldn't know where to start. The point is that being a vet tech major and using that as some sort of leverage to escape criticism is absolute bullshit and anyone in higher education would see right through that pathetic excuse to avoid critique.(blog)

No. 864781

I think the problem we're facing with discussing other channels is the fact that some of us don't watch them or know enough. If we could agree on good summaries of why they're bad, what they have done and linking videos with a description/timestamp or something it would just be a bit easier?

For example, with stuff like AfroHerpKeeper it's pretty clear there's very few people that follow him or know about the species he owns so the conversation there is a bit dead even if it really does seem like a bad hoarding case.

i really hate when people argue the whole 'they're eating and they're moving so it's fine!'. At the end of the day, their behaviour isn't normal for a snake and while they may not show 'obvious' signs of stress, it doesn't mean much. Also the whole 'I have seen no evidence of that' is so bs. You have a sample of one maybe two snakes that are a few years old, and even if you did see evidence you wouldn't exactly report on it.

All in all, I think the whole spider question falls to morals more than ethics because there's so much conflicting information (probably due to how newly 'updated' the hobby is) that won't come into agreement for a while.

I tried to find a wildlife sanctuary for her to go too and also I called animal control and humane society. Both agencies wanted to kill the poor peacock that we named Flair. No wildlife sanctuaries are currently taking in new birds. A day later we brought flair to an avian vet to look at her wounds and broken wing and for her to get medical treatment and antibiotics.
This sweet girl is a fighter and she’s determined to live! We found maggots eating on Flair and we needed to act fast and get these bugs out of her wounds. So today we are flushing her wounds and re-bandaging her.

Wait wtf, is she going to keep it in her tiny apartment?

I agree anon, I don't even think it's her and "maybe 2 anons" like someone else said, I'd guess that it's literally just her. I think I've suggested this before but maybe we should just outright ban any mention of her, because normally when she's outed she lays low for a bit then is back at it full throttle. So banning obviously isn't making a difference. There should just be a thread for all the self posters kek, because I'd hate to give this loser the satisfaction of her own thread. This used to be such a nice thread compared to the others, now it's just all some nobody squirming for attention. I'll try posting to meta too.

Maria's selfposting, collected. and this is only what's been marked so far in this thread.
Motion to ignore?

Maybe it's because I was only half paying attention, but all of his points didn't make any sense to me. Snakes aren't domestic animals nor are they autistic. The video is pretty pointless

Shut up Maria. Get a fuckin job and a credit card you dumbass.

Also >>865651.
I say ignore too, this attention whore is going to end up purposely killing an animal just so she gets a post or two written about her. You know you're a nobody when you get outed self posting 6 separate times and no one even cares.

No. 866210

Don't employers google you in US/wherever she is? If one of them stumbled onto her Twitter where she basically admits to giving her animals shit care and being an attention whore, I don't think they would be too impressed either.

I’m really disappointed because I like a lot of his videos highlighting specific species- but it seems he’s been moving away from that format as of late.

Anyone know if there’s a new TND thread yet?(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)

did anybody notice how severely over grown Tyler Rugge’s macaw’s beak is in his house tour video? He used to have three birds which I don’t understand how he was able to give them the appropriate amount of attention with his 50+ pets.

I want to tweet it at him and ask just to hear his pathetic excuse. Overgrown peaks are VERY preventable. The cages have barely any enrichment. Just because the birds are allowed to sit on top of their cages and not locked inside doesn’t mean they are being mentally stimulated. He owns arguably the smartest bird (African Grey). The amount of attention they need is insane (very doable, but it’s a lot of dedication). How does he keep Gypsy intellectually satisfied with his hoarding issue?
