    So, I am a first time dragon owner but not a stranger to reptiles, nor the care required and behavior of the notoriously feisty yet lazy little dragons:') So I didn't think twice when taking one in from a woman who could not afford entirely correct set up and could no longer keep him. He is a...

    I am getting mega confused on where everything goes in the vivarium when you set it up. Do I put the uv light directly in the middle or to one side? How far away do I place the basking lamp is in the corner ok? When I try to look online different websites give me different answers. Some have...

    Hey guys! Had a royal python for around 9 years now and always believed him to be male. But recently he's had a sudden growth spurt, even though we didnt change how much we feed him, only making the portion bigger according to how much he grew. So hes around 4 foot now and wondering if he's a...

    This morning I went to clean out my viv and found a hard, white sack that looks to be an unfertilised egg. What confuses me is that I was told both of my corn snakes were male! I must say though I have caught them "getting it on" in the past but I chalked it up to prison rules or dominance or...

    Hi, So I'm building a small royal grow out rack. I have all the electrics, thermostats etc for that so was just ordering the wood. It turns out there is going to be a fair bit of wastage on the melamine sheets because of the sizes ( 78 x 61cm on one sheet and 159 x 61 cm on another ) Should...

    Ok so basically I'm very confused over how to actually fix a ceramic heat lamps in place to a vivarium and I don't know anything really about the products that hold them in place etc. So it would be nice if people could recommend some equipment to use to secure the bulb and explain how to secure...
