    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...

    I popped into the local pet store yesterday, just for some basic supplies for my current ones, and saw a gorgeous little woma for sale. The only problem is it's very aggressive. This really surprised me, as I've always heard that breed to be extremely docile. I talked to one of the workers, who...

    For sale is my 100% het albino Female Common Boa Constrictor. She is CB12 with beautiful markings. She has been confirmed as female by 2 independent reptile shops as I wanted to be sure. Reason for sale - the title pretty much sais it all. She can be so gentle at times but for no warning or...

    I have rescued a 6 yr old spotted python from an abusive situation. A man brought this snake into the veterinary office I work at, he said the snake was ill. As proud snake owner I was ecstatic, we do not see very many snakes at our clinic. However, this snake looked awful, he is about 3 1/2 ft...

    I have mentioned this before about the torts, but now their behaviour has changed slightly. Male and female Testudo graeca spur thighed, 7 yrs old. They live happily together on their table. When it is nice weather they go in the garden. This is when the naughty behaviour starts! It all...

    Hi all, I've had various royals and corns over my childhood (I'm 14) and I've never experienced this.. My 4/5' female corn which I rescued from gumtree about a month ago has turned aggressive. Well aggressive isn't really the right word, when I first got her she was very shy but loved to be...

    Hi, I have a 5 month old female royal python. It took me 3 weeks to get her to feed, she then fed for 2 weeks. When I offered her the 3rd feed she became aggressive and didn't want it. 2 weeks later, & she has become very aggresive, striking at me if I go near her. I wear gardening gloves but...

    Hello I have recently bought a baby corn and she was very docile until she started her first full shed, she all of a sudden became very defensive and almost scared when I try to handle her. Any tips you can give to help me? Thanks Zendu

    Hi guys, i haven't posted any pics of my snakes yet, so i thought i'd start by posting some of my new addition; my psycho blood - Kahn, only had him a week or so, he's calmed down a lot already, couldn't even get close to him at first. He'd strike at you even if you were 3 ft away, but i bit...

    One of the greatest joys of the hobby for me seems to be working with difficult snakes - the vicious, grumpy, unsociable and downright evil - but I'm a lot better at it than I expected. I've taken on several 'project' snakes that musked and bit, but they all soon chilled out and while I...

    I know there are a few families of spider on the DWA list, that are obviously thought to be "dangerous", but I was just curious about Ts in the hobby (that you don't need a license to keep) that are also thought to be "dangerous". I know Ts aren't really that dangerous, you just need not to be...

    I understand that it was most likely, totally unintentional for her to do this, BUT! I really didn't know how to handle the situation. Every Sunday night I feed my Red Tail Boa. I feed frozen food, and she generally doesn't even strike. She just kind of bites and swallows her food. Tonight...

    Heya I was in Greece last summer and came across this aggressive little bugger. He's only about 10 inches long but was super grumpy choosing to hiss and strike over running away. Naturally I kept my distance. I'm wandering what kind of snake it is? Many thanks, Jacob

    Hey, so I have posted here before. This time I'm going to try and be more succinct. Recently, I have moved my CWD into an AX48 VIV, decked it out beautifully, live plants, water pool, the works. Temps/Humidity are all fine etc. After being in there for about a month now, he has begun to...

    I asked this on another forum but I am dubious as to whether I'll get a reply there, so I thought I'd post it here as well. Since I'm pretty new here a bit of an intro; I'm a Yankee living in Colorado, USA. I'm familiar with royal pythons and have a very mellow one who has only bit me once...
