  1. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi! I’m a new tortoise Mam, I rescued an 8 year old male horsfield tortoise a month ago. He’s healthy, happy and eats, poops and pees well. The previous owners didn’t know much about him or what to do with him so I’ve changed his substrate to sterilised top soil, put him on a fresh diet (he was...
  2. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    We have two Yellow Belled Sliders (Yurtle and Mack) who have been living happily together for over five years, and have been moved to a bigger tank (220l) with a floating island (cork bark). Whilst Mack has always been the more dominant of the two, he's never really done anything more than push...
  3. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi, So I have a Hermann's tortoise that is roughly 5 years old, and he has gotten into the habit of going after shoes and feet - he bites my dogs feet, my dad's, everyones'. It doesn't hurt, but it really pisses off my family, so I was wondering if there was any way to "train" him or make him...

    Hi, Really need some advice on some behavioural issues i'm having with my 11 y/o royal python. She's been absolutely fine and sweet as can be the whole time i have had her (since she was a hatchling). However, recently (in the last 2 months) she displays very aggressive behaviour whenever I...

    Hi, I've hibernated my corn snakes for the first time this year. Now the heat and lights are back on and they've had their first small meal. I've always fed my corns in a tub outside their viv. When I fed them the male was fine, but my female got really defensive when I tried to pick her up...

    This photo was a completely accidental one, I went into his viv yesterday and went to take a photo of him, but just as I hit the button he flew straight at me, knocked the camera out of my hand, and surprisingly I managed to survive that one miraculously, and avoided the wrath of his teeth so...

    Please help. Over a month ago I was sold two Rankins Dragons who are both the same size and opposite sexes. The store owner said they were fully grown and he would only sell them together as they'd been with each other all their lives. I don't know if they really get on though. The male is...

    I have a two bearded dragons. One male, one female. Recently, the male has been eating the female's tail and back feet. Open wounds and everything. We have been treating the wounds, but it seems rather redundant since he continues to bite at her feet and tail. What does this mean, and what...

    I'v not seen these behaviours in before, only recently i'm a multi dragon owner, i used to only have the male Shrek. One reason why i will never let him meet them unless there is something between them, I thought he'd kill them, was just wondering if he was in that state of mind or was it...

    So I have a bit of a dilemma on my hands, about 2 years ago my boyfriend at the time and I bought a male common boa from a rescue. He came to us in an utter state (covered in mites and underweight) and always had a bit of an attitude problem which was to be expected all things considered! My...

    Hi, yesterday I rehomed an approx 18 month, male royal from a rescue centre. He was originally surrendered by a store due to being aggressive through a complete lack of handling whatsoever to the point he would strike at the glass pr his viv when people went past him. The rescue had him approx 4...

    Hi My Columbian boa constrictor has become very aggressive in the last month. Nothing has changed in her schedule. She's approx 15 months old, and has been one of the tamest snakes I've ever had up until now. She feeds on large mice, and is approx 2 1/2 foot. Her bowel movements are regular, so...

    We got our 3 cresties almost 3 months ago when they were a few weeks old. They have been together since birth and currently live together in a 45 by 45 by 60 vivarium. There are currently a couple of things that indicate that all may not be well between them. One of them (Sarabi) is noticeably...
  15. Other Pets and Exotics
    So about a month ago I got 2 rats. A plain, brown one, Freyja, who has settled in fine and is doing splendidly. She lets us pet her and she's fine. However, the other one we got, Nixie, is a white and grey rat with dark red eyes, so we think she may be slightly blind, or have sight difficulties...

    Hi guys Since my last post re: my aggressive Cali King I have taken advice and changed things... however it continues to get worse :-( I feed him every 5 days and handle him on days 3-5. I need to get him a new Viv as he's now the same length as the width + depth of his current Viv. He's...

    About a year ago I rehomed two adult beardies, previous owner had had them 4+ years and kept them together but couldn't manage any more so I took them under the condition that I wasn't allowed to seperate them. She thought they were male and female, but no eggs have ever been produced. When she...
  18. Spiders and Inverts
    I was watching some dude talking about his pokies on YouTube and he said that they have a tendency to charge him and bite. I looked at some other vids and another chap said that his t would rush out it's hide and bite (and that it actually bit him doing this. Ran up his arm apapparently). Also...

    Soooo.... The AWD has turned into an aggressive little buggar.. Which is the reason why (I'm guessing) he was basically dumped on the door step. Now I've taken the real hands off approach, not really knowing anything about this boy, and wanting him to settle in. He's now a tail whipping...

    I am a first time owner, I recently bought a Western Collared Lizard. He was pretty non-aggressive when I first got him, but lately last week or so has begun biting and sometimes hisses. I've had him about a month now, and I believe the store said he was bought from a breeder. I've checked...
