    As it says in the title. Any information on caring for and breeding the oita salamander (Hynobius Dunni). I've seen the PDF by Henk Wallays but since it is almost 20 years old I was thinking maybe something might have changed. Also can they live outside in the British climate since I know they...

    Hello, me and my partner have several kinds reptiles. We are having a discussion about how often to change their water. I mean they should be changed every day as we use tap water. I mean stagnant water in 25-30c will produce algaes pretty fast which is not good for the reptiles. Do anyone...

    Hi all, another leachie question, appreciate any response. I love my crested geckos, but the desire to try something new arose and I've decided to branch out into leachianus geckos. After a fair lot of research, I've noticed that leachie care seems to be similar, if not exactly the same as...
