    Hi there! I work at a Wildlife Sanctuary, where we care for animals that are non-releasable or cannot be further taken care of by their owners. Recently, we have gained a Argentine Black and White Tegu. She was fed only protein, and she does not like anything other than protein sources. When...

    Hi guys, So, as the title mentions, my python went haywire on me today behind the glass, as I walked by. She struck about 5-6 times against the glass, really hard, scooping a motherload of lignocel along the way. (For the people who know viperkeeper on youtube, he would've called her a toad...

    So my other half wouldn't let me get anymore snakes until I bought her a royal, she loves their cute and dumpy looks, and their general chill attitude. So around 3/4 weeks ago we became the owners of a cb15 hatchling. Problem is, he's a moody bugger! We've let him settle in with a tea towel...

    So I was packing some inverts I sold today and the usually calm Chilobrachys Huahini I sold decided to flip out, just missed my finger and went on an obstacle course around my furniture lol, but I was wondering, seeing as I've never actually been tagged by a T before, how bad is a bite from one...

    First of all I had a little incident today. I let my 19 month old beardie "Dougie" out for a while and he managed to get under the TV unit. Without thinking, I pulled it out slightly and leaned over to pick him up but as you can imagine he felt threatened and went completely flat and had black...

    I purchased a baby Nile, roughly a foot and a half and the petstore couldn't give me a time frame of how old he is so I'm assuming he's wild caught. I've had him/her for a few weeks now and he's starting to settle in and I was wondering, have I gotten that 1 in a million that just isn't super...

    hey guys, just looking for some advice, I have a boa, just coming up to 2 years old, he has always been the most docile snake and just recently he's getting more aggressive. I don't think he is angry, I think its just a feeding response. Its only ever when we have mice out for feeding or in...

    Hi, I have a 2 year old male corn snake that has suddenly become quite aggressive. He has always been a bit dodgy since he got hurt at my old school but he seems to have got worse recently. I have checked his setup and everything is fine. The only thing I can think of is that he is still hungry...

Knowing how the recovery process would be, I asked a very close family friend to care for him/her for me (I still have yet to probe). When I she dropped him off to...

    I've got an adult male crestie who was always friendly enough even though he was a little bit skittish. He'd let me pick him off the glass in his viv an hold him but lately he's been ridiculously skittish, something that I attributed to possibly not handling him enough so the last fortnight or...
