Unique Pet #2: Tarantulas

While the thought of keeping a spider as a pet may churn some people's stomachs, tarantulas are very low maintenance pets.

Unique Pets #7: Lizards

Unique Pets #9: Snakes

Unique Pets #10: Hermit Crabs

Hermit crabs are fun to watch as they move from one shell to the next. You can also throw in other items, such as miniature football helmets, and they will carry those around as their shells as well. Hermit crabs are relatively easy to care for and inexpensive to purchase.

 


How Do You Buy Ants?

Purchasing the perfect kind of ant farm is an essential step in the establishment of an ant farm and there are different types of ant farms to suit the various species of ants. For example, some ants build large anthills, while the anthills of other species of ants are almost non-existent.

There are also ant farms to suit. Some ant farms are like very slim fish tanks. These are appropriate for any of the subterranean ant species. However, there are also ant farms that are shaped like giant eggs but with a flat bottom. The conical top allows ants to build an anthill.

Some ant farm manufacturers include ants in the package, but others do not. If you have set up your ant farm and filled it with earth or sand, the next step is to get your ants. But how do you buy ants?

Well, there are ant dealers. That astounds most people. There are honestly people who specialize in the sale of ant colonies for ant farms. You can locate one of these on the Internet. Try to use the nearest ant dealer to you in order to save the ants trauma from long-distance travel. It is worth using a dependable ant dealer, because you will have more likelihood of receiving ants that will live long enough to establish an active, vivacious colony.

Before choosing an ant dealer, verify the dealer's past reputation. Search for testimonials and also look for complaints. You can do this by typing the firm's name and the word 'complaints' into Google. Any difficulties with the dealer should become evident quite quickly

Unfortunately, sometimes people receive dead ants even from trustworthy dealers, the issue is how the ant dealer deals with the problem.

The best companies will pledge that you receive your ants alive. These are the preferable ant dealers to do business with. Very often the conditions of the business deal are that if the ants are dead on arrival, they should be returned to the dealer, who will then issue a replacement colony.

Or possibly the firm will offer you a voluntary insurance that the ants will be delivered alive or be replaced free of charge. If he does, it is worth taking the insurance up, if you can not find a dealer with a free guarantee

Some ant dealers have shipping policies and to be honest, they all should have them. One of the most common stipulations is that they will not send the ants if the prevalent temperature is above 25c (80f) or below freezing.

Remember, that if your ants arrive on a cold day, they could not be dead or dying, they may just be languid because it is cold. It is quite common for cold-blooded creatures such as ants to become semi-dormant when the temperature drops below a certain level. To confirm whether this is their difficulty, allow them to warm up slowly in the warmth of a typical living room. If they do not 'come back to life' after fifteen minutes in a warm room, you have a dispute.

 


The Spitting Cobras

The spitting cobra is one of the most peculiar species of snake as it not only has a deadly bite but it also sprays venom into the eyes of prey and aggressors alike. Contact with the eyes can be very painful and even blinding, therefore, if you accidentally get cobra snake venom in your eyes, wash them out immediately so as to prevent permanent damage to the tissue.

The King Cobra, Ophiophagus hannah, also distinguishes itself in this large family of snakes (elapids) by the fact that it feeds almost entirely on other snakes with mice and small birds also falling prey to its venom.

The King Cobra is also unique because of its size - it can reach 5.85m (almost 20 feet) in length, which makes it the longest poisonous snake in the world. The latest discovery of a new species of cobra was made in 2003 when it was identified by London Zoo as part of an illegal shipment of exotic pets.

Going by DNA reports, this new species of snake is similar to the red spitting cobra but differs in genes. It apparently originates from an area between Sudan and Egypt and it has been named the 'Nubian Spitting Cobra'.

Though highly dangerous when it is threatened cobras will not attack if you leave them alone, although the spit is very accurate for about two meters. Compared to the strike of a rattlesnake, the cobra is fairly slow in its attack and furthermore, many bites prove to be blank, that is without venom.

According to a study conducted on Malaysian cobra snake victims only 55% of the bites involved venom release and the same statistics indicate a mortality rate of 10% for people bitten, since the toxins injected into the blood of the prey destroy the nerves (neurotoxin) , which induces respiratory failure half an hour after being bitten, giving you 30 minutes to get help.

The colouration is variable from light green-grey to black, while juveniles are yellow and black banded. This snake can find a habitat all over south-eastern Asia.
