    I just upgraded my yearling Suriname BC from an Exo Terra Large Low with, I know, repti-carpet, to a brand new 6' Boaphile with Reptile Prime Coconut Fiber (not the fine). I moved her into her new home last night. She immediately burrowed under the substrate - the first time she has ever been...

    Hey all, I've been trying to get some specific advice for a specific lizard species on substrate. However, for reasons, the conversation always gets de-railed by unrelated opinion disputes due to the particular lizard species in question XD So I'm trying rephrasing the question : Without...

    I've decided to change up the substrate I'm housing my snakes on. They are currently happy on a mix of Humus/Cocofibre with a sprinkling of small size Orchid Bark. It allows plenty of burrowing and helps boost humidity just a bit around shedding. Plus it smells divine and looks pretty good. But...

    Hi all, So, amongst the various advice out there, many people iterate over and over again that Bosc monitors need to dig. A while ago, I bought a new tank with a foot of substrate. He does not dig. I've tried increasing the % of sand, or dropping it (substrate is Coir / Yellow Sand mix - no...

    So i got my first red tail boa the other day. She's maybe a little bit over a year old. Shes been burrowing herself completely underneath the substrate and doesnt seem to come out. My setup for now until she gets bigger is the zilla critter cage 40g you can get at petco. Two bags of the forest...

    Hello!! So, my last post a few weeks ago i mentioned my little dude was digging in the corners and not getting very far.. Temps are fine, uv fine, diet fine and water intake fine. Current substrate is 6inches of pure top soil, watered evrryday. I put it down to him being new the fact that he...

    Hi All I'm after some advice as to why our bosc wont burrow? She is about 3 years old, we've had her since she was supposedly 12 weeks old, we think she more like a year old. I would say she is about 3.5 foot and approx 5kilo now (weighed at vets last week). She is housed in a 8Lx4Hx3W wooden...

    Ello! 4 slings, 3 in tiny deli pots they came in, one in a humous tub. Gave them all a dead mealworm each yesterday- the G. pulchripes dragged it down into its rather impressive uber-burrow yesterday. So my question is- if a sling takes its food down below, how the hell do I get the...

    Hello there :) I have a young baby Pine Snake called Bane, he's about 2ft long atm, and about 3-4 months old. I have noticed that he likes to burrow, but I was wondering if there was any way I could encourage him to burrow more? He tends to wedge himself inbetween the lip in the door of the viv...

    I've got a chile rose juvenile which has burrowed and walled herself in (say its female, no idea though). I thought to myself they sometimes do this when due to shed but am getting worried as shes been in there for almost 3 weeks now. Should I be worried?
  12. Spiders and Inverts
    Ok another question from me . i've seen these clips on youtube of people making burrows in substrate by holding a pipe in place then pouring in the substrate and packing in down around the pipe then gently removing the pipe some of these burrows seemed quite deep isnt that risky incase it...

    My pain in the behind missus has got a cobalt blue sling but it was delivered in a 2" high pot with no air holes (which I added) & 1/4" of substrate. For a burrowing species its total rubbish. I asked a local sweet shop if they had any of those tall sweet jars spare & got told 'no'. I'm fresh...

    Now I've seen my corn burrow before but this is too awesome not to post! And one from the front, sorry about the glass reflection he's having a look out the window! :P
  16. Spiders and Inverts
    So I was thinking about burrowing spiders and people talking about how little they see their burrowing T, so I was wondering if anybody has tried using the Ant Farm model with a tall and wide glass/acrylic vivarium which is only the depth of the spider itself (and a little more for...
  17. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    How far do torts usually search and explore away from their burrow to find food, and how long do they typically do this for, in nice natural green conditions? I've noticed when feeding vista will get up and walk off, and i think she eats more if im not around so much when she does, so i...
