    I ended up with an AFT in a very short amount of time (he came from a situation where he was housed with other male AFTs with no heating/food/water/hides), so I have had to buy everything I can pretty quickly. But his enclosure doesn't seem warm enough, so I'm not sure what to do, and what's...

    I know Royals can be fairly lazy but my female just doesn't move! As some of you may have read recently I have had a few issues with finding the right heating for her. She hadn't moved from her cool hide since I installed a red heat lamp even though I slowly adjusted temps! I settled on the fact...

    I know, I know, everyone has gone over the temperature issue billions of times already. Basically, I can't get to grips with the temps in our bearded dragons vivarium. I know what they are meant to be, but getting them is a whole different thing. If you can't be bothered reading this essay...

    Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me? I set everything up for my gecko vivarium on Wednesday and was hoping to go and buy one this weekend! I've read that you should leave it 48 hours for the temperatures to sort themselves out, BUT after two days the temperatures in my vivarium aren't correct...

    Am now the happy owner of a rather beautiful leo being my first reptile pet. Having moved him yesterday which took a couple of hours in the car and got him setup in his new home I have a few new owner type questions. I placed the mealworms in a small amount of Arkvits but should I also be...

    Hi. I have a ball python. I fed her maybe 2 weeks ago, but she has not pooped in many more weeks than that. I understand that this is usually normal for ball pythons, but several things have gone wrong. Her enclosure has been rather cold lately, but she hasn't been on the warm side much because...

    Ok so I have just got a baby corn snake and viv from someone. My problem is the only way of heating the viv is with the heat lamp but it has no thermostat and I cant get a stat and mat for a few days. I dont want to leave the lamp on all the time its really hot after just 15 minutes but I dont...

    We have a little Mourning gecko who seems to have a cold (I didn't even know they could get colds!). She is sneezing, has trouble swallowing, is bubbling liquid from her nose and sometimes her mouth. She has tried to eat little mealworms, but coughs them back up. Is there anything we can...

    Hi all, i have a 9 month old leucy who WILL NOT stay warm.....he favours the cold end of the viv which is about 65 degrees and when i tried turning up the heat in the whole viv he gets stressed and tries to escape :gasp: He has a heat mat that covers 1/3 of the floor space, a hide, a toilet...

    Of the big, heavier bodied snakes, are there any species that are more tolerant of cooler temperatures? Can't think of any off the top of my head. Although for slender species I'd assume the likes of North American/European rats etc.?

    Hi guys My yellow slider turtle hasn't appeared for a couple of weeks, he lives outside in the pond however there has been a sudden drop in the temperature recently do you think he has died? If so would he float to the top of the water? If not is there any recommendations for what I should do...

    Hey, I've noticed the past couple mornings when I get up, Rose's web is limp and lifeless yet when I go bed it is stiff and strong. Is this because of the cold nights and slight damp in the substrate? Their is also condensation in the talk in the morning but soon goes when radiators come on. Is...

    Does anyone know how reptiles will cope? Normally good brumation spots may be too cold over in the states at the moment, will there be a massive drop in wild species when it is SO much colder than "normal winter"

    hi guys, I was just wondering how long a common boa can survive at room temperature???? My ahs heater has just packed up so I've gotta send it back to microclimate for repair. It's only just over a year old! He's cool to the touch and appears to be ok (doesn't appear to have phased him to...

    Hi Guys, So I have an exo terra vivarium for my crested gecko, and he has a 40w ceramic bulb in the exo terra porcelain clamp lamp, hung above the mesh (and just resting upon it) from a light bracket. I keep the pulse stat at around 24-25c, and usually the ceramic is good at keeping it at that...

    Hello im very very new to the reptile world, and am very interested in keeping a Crested gecko. originally I wanted a leo but the live feed has put me off (and the missus) so I was told by the local reptile store that cresties are a good alternative and easier to maintain. However I have...

    I'm getting worried. My 3 year old female bearded dragon is actively seeking out the coolest area in her viv and then lying there until she is too cold to move, and I have to lift her back into her basking area. The temps, (digital thermometers) cool end 26*C, hot end 37*C, basking area 42*C...

    Hey Guys, Ive been reading parts of these forums for ages but never joined until today :-) When I originally adopted my beardies they were on sand and not kept under good UV light and have infra for heat - the temps are correct and the heat stays on all night as my home seems to be quite cold...

    Hey there everyone! Me and Hannah are a little confused, we've housed Jörmungandr in a RUB since we went to collect him, in that time we've happily maintained his temperatures and tried to keep things around 28-29oC. Today we've kind of hit a wall. This morning the little guy did an all...
