    Hello all, Apologies if I'm on the wrong forum, I'm new to this site. I recently adopted my brother's Nelson Milksnake after he could no longer care for them in college.

    I have a greenhouse that measures about 8x6x6 (feet) that I can heat throughout winter and I'm curious about housing a mangrove monitor in it. Specific care information would be greatly appreciated as I can't really find good info that seems up to date. I know a bit about general care for...

    I'm looking for some advice on some young crested geckos I have. I bought what I thought was a male crestie early 2018 and by mid-late 2018 found eggs in her enclosure. I have four young cresties that have hatched, the first having hatched in late September. They all seem to not be growing...
  8. Other Pets and Exotics
    I'd maybe be interested in owning a ferret in a year or 2. Do they need yearly vaccines in the UK? Do males need to be neutered? Do different genders have different tempers? I've seen harnesses and leashes at the pet store for them, can you walk them on these or would it be unsafe? If they...

    Hi, I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have any tips or advice on keeping a blind Budwing Mantis. My boyfriend only bought her a couple of weeks ago and when she arrived she was a lot more timid than he expected. When I took her out of the viv to check her over, she showed no signs of...
