    Hi all, this is my first post here and I have a very odd question... Please bear with me! I have a 2.5 year old royal python who is very healthy and happy, albeit a bit of an escape artist. On her last 2 feeds I have noticed she is not striking directly at the rat, but towards nothing in mid...

    Hi, I've been rescuing damaged/unwanted turtles for a while now, but I'm having some trouble with a recent rescue. He's completely blind, which is fine, I have a couple of blind/half blind turtles that manage just fine. The only thing is I haven't been able to get him to eat yet. I've tried...

    Okay so I've had my leopard gecko now for 10 years and never had any problems with her until very recently. I don't know whether these two instances could be linked but she suddenly started loosing weight although she was eating very well. I took her to the vets who prescribed a treatment for...

    So last year I bought my Albino Leopard Gecko, Barrels, from Petsmart on November 24. He's (I do believe it's a boy) grown so much (went from being smaller than a toilet paper roll now is longer than one). His tail is fat and he's my spoiled baby. But these past few weeks I've been worried. A...

    My female beardie only has one eye. Her eyesight in the other eye has been brilliant up until a few months ago, but now she has little to no vision in her good eye at all. She can't see to catch hoppers, so I've tried with morios, waxies, holding down dubia's to no avail. I think she's feeding...

    Hello, I have recently got my first leopard gecko a couple of days ago and am worried about his vision. He is a five month old male and was purchased from my local Pets at Home store. Since Wednesday he has settled into his new home well and seems to be happy. This morning he started eating...

    I was wondering if a few of you lovely people would like to help myself & my gorgeous doggie Dillian the Dane, and his best mates. We have entered a photo competition for the very first time & need some extra support by voting for our entry. Dillian was born blind & is pretty remarkable as...

    I've recently found out that my leopard gecko is partially blind due to its morph. I am extremely worried for her and don't know how to feed her and generally make her happy. Any help on those or any other matter that might help will be greatly apreciated. Thank you.

    My Gecko went throuh a shed the other week and still had some skin attached to her head, I immediatley gave her a bath to get rid of the skin, she seemed fine after that, then a couple days later her right eye lid more shut than usual and seemed slightly shrivelled, I gave her another bath to...

    My corn snake tends to miss the mouse and bite himself occasionally. I understand that snakes senses rely on smell and taste rather than sight but how much do they use their sight? Last week he got himself pretty bad and bled and although in the grand scheme of things they are tiny wounds if I...

However when she sees food she seems to pause and then strike and misses the target when it's still, she gets it eventually, but she doesn't seem to see...
