This is definitely a really interesting topic to me, and I’ll try to answer to the best of my ability. Keep in mind that I’m coming at this from a psychology/biology background, not an anthropological one- I’d love to hear people from that field weigh in on the topic.
I’d also like to note that some of the things in this article aren’t based on scientific research but my own observations and opinion.
My reply got pretty long so I put it behind a cut, but here’s what I go over:
- Why people keep animals, and the types of relationships people have with animals
- Domestic vs tamed animals
- Conditions that allow humans to keep pets
- Animal-animal relationships that resemble human pet keeping

Just had that total flashback moment to this:
Wouldn’t be shocked at all to see birds flying around her and singing.
UfYH was apparently discussed on The American Conservative.
I’ll summarize if you don’t want to give them pageviews: There’s a lot of hand-wringing about how parents don’t teach their kids important things anymore, a bunch of the same tired old nonsense about Millenials being helpless and…
My father and grandfather are living proof that some people have always needed a kick in the butt to keep things clean, and I’m definitely not a Millennial either.
Since some people need things to be more complicated than necessary, I have taken the time to write some terms and conditions.

"Anthology", "project", "book", and other such terms are in reference to the publication in question.
Holy shit dude asking for a fucking contract is not “more complicated than necessary” in the publishing business, IT’S STANDARD FUCKING PRACTICE. There are shitlords out there who cheat the fuck out of their writers, and it happens often enough that a publisher or printer not using contracts is major, major red flag. You should’ve been on your knees THANKING that person for calling you out and making you get your shit together so you don’t come across as yet another fucking scammer, not being snarky.
Where are the Siberian Wolves with half-formed eyes, teeth, and noses Darwinists? Huh? None, that’s where.

I’m doing a research paper for school about introducing beginners to owning a pet reptile!
If you have or had reptiles as pets, I could use your help!!
There are only a few questions, and not all of them are even required. Mostly I need ball-park amounts on how much you bought your pet for and what the cost of their enclosures were. Of course, any and all information you have is appreciated and helpful!
If you’ve never had a reptile for a pet, but know friends who do, signal boosts are extremely appreciated!
My adult male green iguana was free but his cage was about $1,500 if I recall correctly. I got it from Cages By Design http://www.cagesbydesign.com/t-Reptile-Cages.aspx
Green iguanas are big animals, and require big cages.
