crypto

  1. Lizards
    Hi, I wrote here a few months ago about the issues my leo was having, but mainly because she was having shedding problems that I hadn't ever seen before, nor could I find anything similar at all. I can't definitively say it's to do with her crypto because it's so different. Basically, she is a 2...

    Hi everyone just need a little advice. 6 months ago my mack snow leopard gecko passed away and she had signs of crypto. From the moment I bought her she didn't seem quite right compared to my other young geckos she was in a 2ft vivexotic vivarium with the usual set up 3 hides heat mat with stat...

    Hi everyone, First of all I've had a poorly gecko for some time. My partner caught me suggesting it may be crypto due to the symptoms shown. Since then, due to having a 3 month old baby in our flat she's convinced he can catch it and potentially die from it. I've had a look on the net and...

    I re homed a leopard gecko with MBD a couple of weeks ago, she is doing very well and has bulked up a bit and has a good appetite. I have 10 geckos in total, 7 different species and today I found this in with my 2 Moorish geckos. I can't tell if its undigested poo or regurge. It smells like poo...

    Hi, I just went to do the snake feed and I found my 4 yr old cornsnake dead. I have recently had a confirmed death from crypto in a snake I got recently aquired :( This snake hadn't been showing any signs of ill health and on examination I have found that there is a green patch on the ventral...

    I've been told by my vet that it can, but all other sources do not confirm this. Does anyone know if this has been tested or proven to be effective? (Sorry if this has been asked already)

    Well, outside of IBD (which is mostly a boa/python thing, I think), I've had the worst happen. A snake that I bought at a pet store a year ago, and that went through a 3 month quarantine, popped with Crypto. Here in the states at least we have no really accurate tests for crypto, and you can...

    First off- in interest of full disclosure, they have tested positive for crypto, have been treated, and are doing well. They are 2 very beautiful females: one candy cane and one phantom. Both are about a year an a half old, and before they were exposed to crypto, never had any other problems...

    I have been going through absolute hell in my snake collection because of Cryptosporidium, a protozoan more often associated with lizards. I figured this may be helpful for all snake owners, because there is not enough awareness of this disease in snakes. Crypto is generally under- diagnosed and...
