    Hi, I've hibernated my two corns for the first time this year as I plan on breeding them. I stopped feeding them mid November then on started lowering the temps in December. I weighed both snakes on the 07/12/14, female: 527g, male 693g. I've kept an eye on them and checked on them periodically...

    Just went to check on my girlfriends Beardie and he was under his log appearing to be dead... I tried moving him and everything but nothing happened.. He eventually opened his eyes. He looks very lethargic and lifeless. He was a rescue lizard which we got a few weeks ago but he has been fine and...

    I've only had my western hognose for a few months, and she's a full grown seven year old female. She's never gone into brumation before with any of her previous owners but it's something I would like to do with her. Would it be safe for her, considering she's never done it before and taking...

    Hi everyone I have a 2 year old beardy who, since I moved house last Saturday, has stopped eating (only eating the occasional wax worm) and sleeping in his cold end a lot? He has been through phases like this before but this seems to be the longest. We have also moved house before and I...

    My female Rankins dragon seems to be brumating, we only found out she was female last Monday and since then all she's done is sleep. She did sleep alot before, probably for the last month or so, but even more so now. I realise this is normal behaviour and when we got her health checked they...

    Hi all looking for a little advice here. Firstly I will start with her stats so to speak she is adult but age is unknown I would estimate around 3 years tho. Her weight is 77g. I have had her for about a year and a half to two years and she is a very healthy, happy leo. Eats like a little piggy...

    Hi, I just wondered if I should be worried about my beardy. I have read that beardies should be slowy down a bit now, but my beardy is actually getting more active and eating perfectly (about 20ish a day). She is shedding at the moment, and for the first time I have had a beardy shedding, I...

    Hi all. Last Sunday my beardie didn't eat a thing, and hasn't eaten all week until today, when she ate a few greens. I've offered her crickets every day still but she's not interested. She sleeps a lot more that she used to, in the hot end and mostly on her basking spot, and even when she's...

    Hi all, my beardie has been brumating for a couple of months now - will he wake himself up or do I have to do it? He currently sleeps in a wooden house in the cooler end of his viv and apart from shifting position every now and again, doesn't do much! He regulary keeps an eye open to see what's...
  13. Breeding
    Though I've owned snakes for nearly 14years, I am new to breeding and want to start as soon as possible. I do have some concerns however, as the female I wish to breed is a California king. Most of you I'm sure, are aware of the King's cannibalistic tendancies so can understand why I want to...
