    Hey all, I had to leave home for about 3 days and when I returned my yearling Granite Jag Carpet Python had dug through her cypress mulch substrate and squeezed through the small opening to get behind the foam background of her Exo Terra. I am not sure whether she was back there by choice or...

    Hi Guys, Hope you are well, I have a Pastel Orange Ghost Ball Python who is 2 years old who is currently not feeding and is extremely active and not spending much time in his hides. I understand mating season is generally around January and can trigger this kind of behaviour but he has now...

    I was wondering if anyone could help? I got my adult beardie in feb and she has always been very chilled out but today for some reason, she is running all around her viv, jumping of of things and digging/clawing at the sides of the viv, when I took her out she was doing the same. The...

    Hi all, I have had my gargoyle gecko for about a year and a half now and she is around a year and 8 months old. For the last few weeks she has been digging every night in the same place. I know that females can lay infertile eggs but there are never any eggs. She has dug before but not as...

    Hi All Our beardie Daisy has started constantly digging at her substrate, Zoo Med Repti Fresh. This seemed to coincide with the clocks going back and the weather cooling off. Hoped it would die off after a week or so from what I read, we also put a box of sand in there and she happily dug in...

    Hello, my female ~6 month old beardy has been scratching around inside her hide and clearly wants to dig around a bit, so I'd like to provide something. I've seen digboxes with flax seeds or alfalfa pellets but I think she wants to dig where she sleeps? So I'm wondering what would be good to...

    I wondered if anybody could shed some light on why my 9 week old beardie is digging. All the viv temps are fine and dandy, beardie is eating well and does not appear to be stressed and allows handling. Any help would be appreciated...I have had to learn so much in a week after my first night...

    Hey guys So my bearded dragon has been digging alot recently. I've only noticed it on the night before she goes to sleep but I have notice in the other corner she has been digging. Must of been during the day as well. Is this a sign she is gravid? Are there any other signs I should look for?

    Okay, so I know I'm likely to get a lot of conflicting opinions on this, since it appears to be a topic of much debate... But would it be feasible to keep a bearded dragon on lino, with perhaps a box of something like oatbran or scrap paper to allow for natural digging behaviours? I'm assuming...

    Hey all! So recently my tortoise (horsefield), has been doing some strange behaviour. He's digging in the corner of his table, which is close to the basking area and tends to just sleep there. Im certain he's not digging because he's cold, as he has a cool side to go to (18-20oC average) I...

    Hello all, My bearded dragon is about 2.5 years old. She was kept wood chips for the first couple of years of her life however I read that this was bad in case she ate any so replaced this with sand 6-8 months ago. She has been fine on this however the last few days she has been frantically...

    This may be a long post, so thank-you in advance for reading. My female veiled chammy has been gravid for a while, will still eat a hopper once every day or two days, and doesn't seem to be dehydrated, the weird thing is that at the back of her body, just in front of her hind legs it appears to...

    HI, I bought myself 2 Ackies the other week and I think that they are awesome. I have been feeding them 1 pinkie a week and a mixture of other insects throughout the week. However I am concerned about one of them as I have no idea whether its eating or not. I hardly see it out as it digs itself...

    As far as I know Chile Roses are meant to just be happy in a tank, but not mine, she has a nice sized tank, a plant pot for a hide and some cork bark to climb on and web. Instead she has dug right under all the substrate, and all the way under to the underside of the plant pot. I do not mind...

    Hello all, I have just adopted a 1 year old female beardie and she has started digging in the corners of her viv, I can't tell if she wants to lay or if she is just being a dragon and doing her thing. I use reptile carpet for substrate but thought about using sand or something else for her to...
