A global citizen science platform to discover, share and identify wildlife
Hi Josj, we use the pets category to differentiate companion animals from wild ones. Those in our homes are different than those in zoo's that supply information about the species for conservation purposes. If we accept this spotting as wild, the data we collect would be invalidated. There are a lot of community members that have domestic pets that are found in the wild that use the Pet category. I truly hope you understand! :)
The pet category is for domesticated companions, not simple captive specimens. Think of it as the way you would categorize a captive bactrian camel as a pet. It's a captive wild animal.
Thank you Josh, please go ahead and mention that in the notes and change the category to Pets. :)
My bad, this is indeed a captive specimen. I forgot to mention that.
It would be uncommon to have this species in Connecticut. Their farthest range to the north is said to be North Carolina. If this is indeed your pet, please move this spotting to the Pets category. Thank you
Come on, Josh- we both know that Slinky is your pet.
