  1. Snakes
    My 7 month old ball python has cloudy eyes with very small dents. Not as drastic as some pictures I have seen but still very worrisome since I have never had this problem before. He is due for a shed now, but could it be a humidity issue? he eats every week like clockwork and stays in his almost...

    Hey everyone, so I am wanting to move my snakes from vivs into a rack due to lack of space and the potential for getting more royals in the future.

    So sorry if this question has been asked before; it didn't come up in any of my searches: I bought a baby ball python from a vivarium a little less than a month ago and at that time they told me to feed her hoppers.
