The Twenty-First Century Fox FAQ
The world on the twenty-first century is a civilized one, governed by law and custom, but with the predator/prey relationship between species an accepted part of life. Predators are expected to curb their appetites around their herbivorous co-workers (Smelly Johnson takes pride in fostering this attitude at the Skunkworks). However, Nature still rules. A fox can take down a rabbit if provoked. Jenny thinks it's funny that Jack would have a friend who's a mouse.

They do, from time to time, but in small ways. The death of the late Graham Chapman has prevented them from doing anything larger ever again. In 1998 they gathered together onstage at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado, to answer questions posed by Robert Klein in front of an audience of industry professionals [like the cast of "Cheers"] who nevertheless seemed starstruck to see them.

Diclectin® for the management of nausea and vomiting of ...
Diclectin® is a delayed release tablet. If we split or alter the coating, we don't know what will happen with its stability and absorption. We can expect alteration in pharmacokinetics if this coating is destroyed. No stability data is available on crushed or split tablets. Therefore, as the manufacturer, we recommend that Diclectin® tablets be administered as whole.
Healthy ball pythons will shed their skin several times a year. This is not due so much to growth, but just to the fact that the old skin needs to be replaced. They usually have some trouble shedding in one piece. You can help your ball python shed by placing them in a large container of water, lukewarm to warm for a few hours at a time. A rock placed in the tank can also help them to "rub" off the dead skin.

A good rule of thumb is to feed the snake a food item that is the same size or close to the snake's diameter. Feed an item that is too large and the snake will often regurgitate it. Snakes will also regurgitate if they do not have a warm area or if they are handled too soon after they eat.

They broke up constantly. I mean that in terms of constantly making each other laugh, and also in terms of splitting apart. John Cleese officially left the group in 1973, but came back soon after. The last real thing they ever did as a group was in 1983, with the film "Monty Python's the Meaning of Life."

With the proper caging and environmental conditions, they are one of the easier species to maintain. It is important to keep Green Tree Pythons within a certain temperature range. They also require much higher humidity level than many other species. It is a good idea to mist the animals at least once every other day to provide another source of drinking water. See Care & Maintenance. (From this point on Green Tree Pythons will be referred to as Chondros)
MassWildlife - Black Bear Problem FAQs
Black bears are capable of killing various livestock and poultry, including sheep, goats, swine, cattle, rabbits, turkeys, and chickens. Sheep accounted for most (90%) losses in Virginia but in Alberta cattle (mostly calves) comprised 81% of losses. Livestock depredations are comparatively uncommon in Massachusetts; 100% of livestock owners surveyed in 1990 indicated that damage was "low" or "moderate" with losses <$1000 per year.
Honey badgers are reputed to go for the scrotum when attacking large animals. The first published record of this behaviour was a circumstantial account by Stevenson- Hamilton (1947) where a badger reportedly castrated an adult Buffalo. Other animals alleged to have been emasculated by honey badgers include wildebeest, waterbuck, kudu, zebra and man. This has also been reported by other African tribes, but no direct evidence exists to support this behaviour.
Boa Constrictor Store - Frequently Asked Questions
The boa ingests the meal whole, usually staring at the head. The boas use their tongue, which is not poisonous or harmful in any way, to locate the part of the meal to be ingested first. The tongue also functions to help the boa detect potential preys' scent and to know the temperature of its surroundings. The boa's jaws are loosely attached to the rest of the skull. This allows the mouth to be stretched, somewhat like a sock, over the head of its prey.

Lions hunt opportunistically and will eat anything from aardvark to zebra and birds to elephants. However, there does seem to be some cultural transmission of hunting skills. Some prides have learned to be particularly effective at bring down giraffes while others have not acquired that skill. In our study area we have only one pride that kills baboons, though baboons are present in all pride territories.
Some medicines need to be stopped before surgery, and we will go over these. Some medicines will need to be changed, so have a complete list of your medications available. We will work with your primary care doctor to determine when you should restart some medications and in what form. You probably will not need to restart medications for cholesterol or lipids after these surgeries, and we want these stopped at least a week before surgery (Lipitor, Pravachol, etc.).
Generally, no. Sometimes crushing a tablet and sprinkling the powder on apple sauce or some other food helps those who have difficulty swallowing tablets. The only exception to this is if the supplement is enteric coated to allow it remain intact in the stomach and break down in the small intestine.
