Pets are a way to enjoy perfect relaxation with nature, in the comfort of our homes.
A pet is an animal almost of any kind kept for companionship and enjoyment in and around a household. Popular pets are noted for their loyalty, characteristics, attractive appearance, or for their sounds (birds). Keeping pets also relieve stress to those who enjoy having animals.
History shows us that in the Roman Empire, the first fish to be kept indoors was the sea barbell. Keeping of fish in an aquarium became a very popular hobby and spread quickly throughout the world. An aquarium is a holding tank of some sort consisting of at least one transparent side in which water-dwelling plants or animals are kept. Normally build out of glass, acrylic or plastic. The typical hobbyist aquarium includes a filtration system, an artificial lighting system, and a heater and some sort of air supply. You will find fish from fresh water to salt water in average homes today. But some of most beauty fullest fish are the discus fish with it round shape and bright colors. There is a huge amount of aquarium supplies in the online shop for you tropical fish.
Dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) is a domesticated form of the all popular wolf, whom is a member of the Canidae family. Dogs are pack animals but you can keep only one. “Dogs are man’s best friend”, I believe any pet can be your best friend. The majority of dog owners describe their dog as part of the family. Dogs have worked with humans as: herding livestock, hunting, rodent control, guarding, helping fishermen, guiding a blind person over crossings, and pulling loads, rescuing trapped people, finding lost people and even helping the police fight crime. The dog brain is dominated by an olfactory cortex and combining that with 125 to 220 million smell-sensitive receptors giving the dog an excellent sense of smell. Dogs can discriminate odors at concentrations nearly 100 million times lower than humans can. The dog also uses the wetness on his nose to determine the direction of the wind that is carrying the smell.
Dogs are mostly kept to protect a property but they do tend to be mans best friends. They are very hard workers in the combating of crime and even saving lives or living with a blind person. Dogs love their owners if they are properly cared for, and would even die for them without thinking about it (man’s best friend). Dogs come in all sizes and forms so make a right pick when you decide on getting a dog.
Other very nice pets are cats because of their loving nature (also known as Felis silvestris catus). Cats have been with humans as far back as 9,000 years (7000 BC), and are currently the most popular pet in the world. Cats were seen as gods in Egypt. They have excellent night vision and can function in almost total darkness; they also have excellent hearing and can detect an extremely broad range of frequencies that is not hearable for the human ear. Cats keep your home clean of rodents and most of the time they will bring you the catch. Please note not to take the catch from the cat or be harsh on them. They want you to approve and thank them! If you don’t like it when your cat catch the bird rather use a bell. But please keep in mind that it is the cat’s nature to catch smaller animals and that it is probably the one of the reasons you got a cat. Cats purr at +- 26 cycles per second, the same frequency as an idling diesel engine. Cat hearings frequencies go up to about 65 kHz, humans only go up to 20 kHz. And a cat sense of smell is about 14 times better than that of humans.
There is nothing like waking in the morning with nature singing. It beats the bed alarm any day. Pet birds do come in a very large variety but some of the most common bird is: parrots, budgies, cocotte’s just to name a view. Birds are kept from small cages in a living room to huge cages in the back yard. So please read a lot about your pet animals before you get any bird. Bird can even be tamed and will sit on your shoulder, go to the mall with you and even learn a view words. So I would say a pet bird is one of the most popular pets in the world. You can get about any and all supplies for them at most local pet shops. Parrots are also known as psittacines. Characteristic features of parrots include a strong curved bill, bright and wide variety of colors, an upright stance, strong legs, and clawed zygodactyls feet.
Hamsters are great pets for young children and easy to care for. They fall more in rodent category and for that reason should you always keep a hamster or mice cage closed. There is nothing worse than your kid’s pet hamster or mice lose in the house. It will destroy your property and I will never be able to put out a trap or poison for my kids pet. How will you tell him that tom the house hold cat ate he’s hamster. Hamsters are rodents belonging to the subfamily Cricetinae. Their diet contains a variety of foods, including dried food, berries, nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables. Hamsters are generally solitary animals and may even fight to the death if put more than one in a cage, but the dwarf hamster may get along with another hamster of the same species. The Syrian or Golden Hamster also known as Mesocricetus auratus is the most common hamster that is kept as a pet.
Snake do make lovely pets but they are not as play full as a dog or cat, they don’t sing nice songs in the morning and I sure don’t want to wake up will a snake in or on my bed. But they are very interesting animals and there really are beautiful snakes in this world. I have kept snakes in my home a view times. Among the common pet snakes are corn snake. Corn snake also known as Elaphe guttata, or red rat snake, is a North American species of rat snake that kill their prey by use of constriction. Their peaceful nature, and reluctance to bite a human and even there size of about 1.2–1.8 meters (3.9–5.9 ft), there attractive pattern on their body’s and comparatively simple care make them popular pet snakes. In the captivity they may live as long as 23 years. Another snake is a python but they tend to be some of the world largest snakes so be prepared for huge cages and bit feedings.
Now the spider department really gets a bit freaky for me. You get a lot of spiders kept as pets but the most common one it the Tarantulas. Tarantulas comprise a group of hairy and large spiders. They belonging mainly to the family Theraphosidae, of which about 900 species have been identified and growing. The name ‘tarantula’ comes from the town of Taranto (Southern Italy) and was originally used to identify an unrelated species of European Wolf spider. Here in South Africa and the rest of Africa mostly, theraphosids are frequently referred to as Baboon spiders. Other names they are called throughout the world are: earth tigers, bird-eating spiders, barking spiders, whistling spiders.
