    Hi all, My pet female Giant Asian Mantis, Koda, died a while back and the thought that it might have been my own fault has been haunting me for months. I remember that she was around 6-8 months old living in around a 12 cm- 20 cm high tank with a chunk of wood and some coco fibre at the bottom...

    Hi all, not sure if anyone will be able to help and shed any light on this. I fed both my snakes the weekend (Corn Snake, Seb & Hognose, Spaghet), Seb took his mouse fine as usual but Spag has always been a fussy one so he took a while as usual, trying to eat it from the feet the first time and...

    Hi! A bit of a glum first post from me here but we recently lost our leopard gecko, Sobek, to cryptosporidium. She was a lovely, silly girl and brought so much joy to the family. Needless to say we've learned our lesson about the big C, but shockingly Sobek was able to survive a remarkably long...

    Hey everyone, first time posting here, but was just hoping that doing so would help me to deal with things. Earlier in the week my beautiful pet corn snake Sinuous died quite suddenly and unexpectedly. He was fine at night and was his usual self, came down in the morning and he had passed...

    Just found out my little buddy died today (my first invert). I went on holiday and left my pede with the local reptile shop for boarding. When I went to take him to the shop before I left he was a little paler than usual and had been spending more time in his cave. They said they'll keep...

    Hi all, First time posting here, unfortunately on a sad occasion. My female gecko has just died at the grand old age of 20. She's been together with a male in the same vivarium (had them from birth) for her entire life. I'm wondering if anyone knows if geckos have any kind of notion of...

    We have had a pair of cresties for 8 years, bought from a reputable pet shop when they were a few months old. They have been separated (by a barrier ina single viv) since we discovered - the hard way - that they were male and female. The female has always been small, slim and a picky eater but...

    I have sad news. Well, for myself at least. My six month old Butter Ball Python died yesterday. It was really sudden and weird because she was doing really well. She ate well, shed her skin well and was an active little thing. I've only had her for about two months. The temps were good, she had...

    Hi guys, It is with sadness I post today. My gorgeous girlie Squish passed away very suddenly today. I know you won't have any definative answers and the only way to get them is to have a PM but wondering if any of you may have any idea what happened. I have had Squish since Oct 2012 (she was...

I have set them up in a large plastic box, 84L thing, with a 47inch heat mat going round and covering just over half the inside so...

    Hello all, My son's horsefield, Gil, aged three, appears dead. For the past week he's eaten little, but he's been drinking and bathing. Last autumn he went through a week or so of minimal eating. I've just been to check on him and he was where I left him at 7am this morning. Completely...

    Hi, Okay, so as you can see from my title - 2 of my Corn snakes have died within the past two months. I have been looking after snakes for the past 6/7 years... I own(ed) 7 Corns - 2 male, 2 female and 3 undetermined. The 3 unsexed are the children of two of my corns which I bred 2 years ago...
  13. Breeding
    I'm looking for some data on "in ovo" mortality of late-stage snake embryos, and was hoping people here might be able to help, as I haven't been able to find any studies on it. In your experiences, roughly what proportion of eggs would you say fail to hatch when the embryo is in the last third...

    Have a lot of surplus equipment left over after housing all hatchling snakes this year, thought I'd try something different and have read up on roaches which seem a good bet. Ideally looking for hissing roaches, dominos, death heads or headlights but other suggestions welcome! Postage only as...
  15. Invert Classifieds
    Hi forum I haven't posted here for a while. I am looking for a website that sells moths & butterflies (larvae and pupae preferred but eggs are okay as well) The website which I used to order from was wwb.co.uk but I have recently come into some trouble and the prices just keep getting more...

    Whilst minding my own business this afternoon I spotted a cat stalking a solitary magpie. What happened next I found quite amazing. The beat up magpie flew to a tree nearby in a dazed fashion and out of nowhere came a squadron of magpies, about a dozen. Once formed into an attacking formation...
