    So this is probably me being ocd, but I noticed the tip of my ball python’s tail was looking a little white/pearly? I don’t know if I’m just overreacting but I was worried that it may be retained shed/ scarring/scar tissue? Her last shed looked complete but she always sits on it so it was a bit...

    Hi there. I've been working on a bioactive settup for my new snake that's arriving soon but I'm having trouble hitting that 55% sweet spot for BPs. I can get it up to about 50 or so but it drops really quickly. I'm using a Vivexotic Repti-Home Vivarium - Medium, with a ceramic heating bulb...

When they arrived with me, they were sick and I immediately took them to the vets, they had an RI. For almost 2 months they had to have injections every other day as well as vet visits. She...

    Hi All, I know this is a common question from people and more often than not we come to the conclusion the snake is a normal but i thought id ask for feedback nonetheless.
