She is very friendly, definitely female as laid eggs before I got her. Likes to wander around the living room when the dogs are locked out, likes a bath, sits...

    I have posted this on another forum and may post it on another since I am trying to gather a lot of opinions about this situation. I want to preface this by saying that I am not naming the breeders yet, after this is all over depending on the outcome I will ask them if it is okay to name them...

    I have a LARGE tropical fish house. It is humid, warm and seems to be the perfect environment for reptiles. I am considering the options of adding a few free roaming reptiles in there. What would your thoughts be please? I would love chameleons. I know that they are territorial but they would...

    (TLDR: I have 5 leopard geckos. One died from gout yesterday. How do I prevent this from ever happening again to my other geckos? What am I doing wrong with their care?) It is with great sadness that I write this thread, as one of my beloved leopard geckos Albion passed away yesterday. I had...

He hasn't been glass pushing for a while but started again last week and his nose is already slightly red again...

    Hello, I am looking to be a first time owner of a lizard. I have space and time to collect the supplies, vivarium, and then eventually the lizard itself. I am ideally looking to buy a lizard that is handleable, ideally eats veg, and sleeps in the night, but I don't mind feeding live prey. I...

    I bought a 40w red light for my 10 gallon tank, but that never reached 80-85 degrees (which is what my corn snake should have), so then I bought a light with a dimmer and a 60w ceramic bulb and that made the tank even colder. Now I have both lamps going, but they still aren't heating the tank up...

    I have recently decided I wanted to start breeding lizards but am having trouble deciding between bearded dragons or leopard geckos. I do plan on selling the babies but profit is not a priority, however I do wish to at least stay in or around the green and not go too far into the red. That being...
