    Hi, I'm very new to the reptile life and could use some advice. I recently came across a very cute juvenile corn snake that I fell in love with but comes with a little problem. He has a small depression on his head. (The breeder called it a birth defect) To me it just looks like his head is a...

    Hey, all, I'm a fairly experienced reptile keeper, and earlier this year became the owner of a captive bred Weber's Sailfin lizard, now about 7 months old. I've been working with her and developing a relationship, which has not been easy thanks to the usual Sailfin flightiness. However, we've...
  4. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi, So about two weeks ago I got my first Tortoise, a young Hermann. I’ve joined here really to make sure I’m taking care of him properly as I’m finding it more stressful than I realised as I can’t read him. I worry he’s not eating enough, not drinking enough etc. I started doing more research...

    So I need some advice.. I got a red-eyed tree frog 2 days ago and he's been sleeping on the wall of the terrarium the whole time. I'm assuming he's acclimating to the new space but I'm still a little worried because I'm not quite sure if this is normal. He's been out in the open just hanging...

    Hello! I am planning some vivariums for my ball python and a future boa (either hog island or dumerils, I haven’t decided!), and I need some advice on the building materials. I’ve decided on 12mm OSB board with liquid rubber as a sealant, these will be bioactive so it needs to hold water. I’d...

    Hi, I've bought myself a 'Horned Mountain Dragon' yesterday. He has a Terrarium measured 45x45x95; he seems very healthy, he's been eating and drinking -- so to my judgement he has adjusted well within the first night! I have a Mister on it's way in order to keep him hydrated and to keep...

    Hi there, I ordered a leopard gecko with fedex priority overnight shipping which was guaranteed for delivery today, but it's looking very likely that it won't come today, I called fedex and they said for some reason it didn't get on a plane last night and that it might not come until tomorrow...
  11. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hello, We have noticed some changes in our horsefield tortoise shell since he has woken up. As you can see the suture lines are very deep and he has high peaks on his shell. Is this pyramiding? He receives all the relevant vitamins and supplements required to avoid this. Thank you for your help!

    Hey all, So I'm picking up my first Boa tomorrow and have decided on a Sonoran Dwarf Boa from a local breeder, we have chosen a male as the breeder recommended him, as he is the least aggressive as he's had a lot of time spent on him as the breeder was originally planning on keeping him. I have...

    Hello all, First time posting here. I recently acquired 2 western painted turtle juveniles around 10 months old (were a fair bit larger than the hatchlings).They're currently being kept outside and look to be doing well. However I immediately notice a personality difference between the two, one...

    Hi. I have a young ball python. I think she's just around over one year old. She's two to three feet and normally has an amazing apatite. But for the last few months, she's refused to eat. I don't know what's wrong. Her skin is rough but she won't shed. So maybe that's it? I've tried soaking her...

    Hey Guys, I'm moving to paris with my crested gecko and was wondering how I can get there. I've seen that the coaches don't allow pets onboard, and nor does eurostar. Are there any alternatives other than flying? I've also read that I just need to have a document signed by the vets that says...

    I've had my eye on a beautiful adolescent fire skink from my local pet store for a couple weeks now, and I'm really tempted to get him. I make weekly trips as it is to get bugs for my tarantula and mice for my snakes so I see him all the time. Here's the problem: last time I was there, I noticed...
