Help!

I have 3 firebelly toads and I know spring time is mating season and lately they’ve been up all night long attempting to mate or mating. They hardly ever make noise except when they “hug” one another and due to their mating, the won’t stop croaking! I keep my toads in my room because my mom is squeamish about them and the croaking keeps me up all night! I haven’t gotten a full nights rest in weeks, does anyone know how I can get them to stop?
Message me if anyone has ideas!

While the hustle of life moves around us, I choose to sit and watch the stars over my favorite mountain. Take a moment and enjoy the earth - the natural beauty and complexity. Happy Earth Day.

1. Those tigers look thin.

2. Zoos are fucking stupid.

3. Capturing wild animals and using them for human entertainment is a super shitty thing to do.

4. This is not cool.

This is abuse and horrible.  Zoos are prisons.

Some zoos only take old animals to where they are given an easy life. Their maintenance is funded by people coming into the zoo.

Those tigers are not thin.

"Zoos are fucking stupid" wow such science you sold me

They weren’t captured for this purpose, they probably weren’t captured at all, it’s called rescuing. 

This is cool.

This is not abuse, it’s actually exercise if you think about it.

Zoos are not prisons. Zoos allow us to rescue animals, research them, and protect them from hunters and the dangers that we, as humans, impose on them.

I’m so done with all the shit about zoos on my fucking dash. 

Zoos literally save animals every day so why don’t you do your freaking research.

This comment is perfect^

Animals come to zoos as a result of 

  • being born captive
  • getting injured in the wild and rescued to live a healthy life in captivity
  • being rescued from black market dealers, private collectors, or the like who decide that they can no longer care for the animals or who had been illegally keeping the animals
  • being in a breeding program to increase their numbers because the animal is endangered in the wild

If you knew anything about tigers at all, you’d know that they are endangered in the wild due to poaching and hunting. It is of utmost importance that their numbers increase, or they will go extinct within the next fifty years. I don’t know what zoo this is so I don’t know their reputation, but the tigers look healthy, and this tug-of-war is good for them because some animals get stressed in zoos when they are bored. This isn’t solely to entertain zoo guests, it is to give the tigers something fun to do.

Zoos do not snatch animals from the wild without a good reason. If you want to protest animal captivity, go to SeaWorld and protest the orcas being kept there, they are far too large to belong in such cramped spaces and they are solely kept for entertainment.

Thank you and good day.

ALSO ITS NOT LIKE THEY’RE FORCING THE TIGERS TO GRAB THE ROPE, THE TIGER WANTS TO PLAY

THANK YOU, YOU LOVELY PEOPLE. I work at a Zoo and the animals I see are always so happy! They are not upset and we have recently had a lot of babies be born there and it is amazing. We just celebrated a baby elephant’s (I sadly forget her name) 2nd birthday. All they want to do is play and they are not made to do anything. There are some animals that aren’t even out all of the time because if it hits a certain temperature they are not allowed out so they don’t get sick. They are all so cared for. People need to get their facts together. There are some places, yes, like seaworld, that are terrible, but most Zoos are not like that at all. And honestly, the best place I have seen is Animal Kingdom.

I love the second picture where all the tigers are crowding around like “Hey. it’s my turn now!”

Nice things to whisper when hugging someone
