    Hi people, I made an account here since I don't really know what to do with this issue anymore and I can't find many relatable stories. I bought my hognose 1.5 year ago as a baby. He was the most docile of the other three available snakes and he stayed like that for a while. +- 6 months ago he...

    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...

    New to the forum, so let me know if this is the wrong place for this. My blue tongued skink seemed to be agitated by his back right foot. He began to snap at it, and before I could stop him he bit his smallest toe off. I can't find much information about this behavior online, so I thought I'd...

    Hello, Thursday 29 March I obtained a Hognose snake from a local rescue centre. It is about 20inches long and I weighed it at around 68g. I held it in the rescue centre and it was super chill and friendly - no hissing, bluffing or anything. They didn't know the sex but for convenience I'll say...

    My 5 year old corn snake has been put on a course of antibiotics for pneumonia. I have been giving the injections at home and I noticed around 40 minutes after giving the injection she started biting around the site of injection. I immediately intervened and phoned the vet. They said not to be...

    I have a male razorback and a male common musk turtle, the razorback has always been slightly bigger of the two. I have had them for almost 4 years now and just recently the razorback has been biting the common musk. He bites the back of his shell by the tail and doesn't let go. The common musk...

    Do you have any advice on handling my Common Boa, please? He's just turned 3 years old and he "runs" away every time I go to pick him up and he's bitten me nearly every time also. It's more of a warning nip than a proper bite but it does draw blood. Last weekend he bit me on my face...

    Hello! I am a first time reptile owner, and I have owned my ball python for a little under a year. She's an absolute sweetheart, and from how I've seen her react to both myself and other people, very comfortable with me. I have seen multiple pet owners state that it's best to be bitten by a...

    I've had my two yellow bellied sliders for over 6 years now. First got them when they were around 1/2 years old. Because they were in such a bad condition when I got them I took them to our local exotic vet to make sure all was well. The vet sexed them as females and they were fine. They've...

    Hi, My male ackie has been acting very strange recently, he is always on the move and rubbing his face up against the glass. All he usually likes to do is bask and eat. He has also taken to biting the females neck recently which he has never done before either. They have been together all their...

    I've had my albino rosy for almost 3 years. In November I required complete reconstructive surgery on my ankle for the second time. 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 have ran into an issue with my boa. I have a 9 year old male Surinam Redtail that I raised from a baby. He is just a little over 6 ft. He has also been very gentle and has had pretty regular or at least predictable feeding schedule. A few months ago I also acquired a female redtail which is...
