    I've seen a lot of people using plain old tap water for their snakes drinking bowls, mainly on Youtube, however i have always been told this is dangerous because of chemicals in the water. Other people use filtered tap water, with one of those filter thingys, and so i can see how that is more...

    Hey guys, Just a quick question which many people may have asked in the past.. Looking at getting a Panther Chameleon (can't wait!), despite the bad reviews I have read on some forums and sites, I've just purchased the Exo Terra RS400 Monsoon. Now, when I get my little Chameleon, I want the...

    We are new to snakes and have two young corns, I change their water everyday and put it on the cool side but I have never seen either drink without me assisting them! Unless they wait until 3am I don't get it. So I pick them up and show them the water and they drink whilst I hold them but...

    Today I finally got a empty water spray bottle so I misted Flare's vivarium. She came out right away and wandered about drinking water out of her substrate (Orchid bark) and from the condensation from the glass and walls. She then went to her water bowl and started taking a gulp, then lifting...

    Hia I fed my beardie some slices of strawberry and he was sitting there licking away eating little bits at a time drooling away :2thumb: must have really liked them. I found it really interesting as i have tried feeding him them before and he wouldn't even acknowledge them. So yeah, afterwards...

    Right it my sound silly, but I'm curious! My Royal took a mouse last night (First meal in 6 weeks so Thank god for that!) Then shortly after I saw him with his mouth just in the water bowl, first time I've seen this and it made me wonder how they drink Do they drink the same as us, like...

    Really a quick query as i know they dont drink often and i have probably not seen Gary do this before as hes more active at night when i turn the front room lights off. I've only ever seen him drink from the water bowl once since i have got him a week ago so how often should he be drinking...

    After the loss of our first chameleon, Stryder due to a severe prolapse, we've finally gotten a new one, Petrie. He's not very old, maybe a month or more, and so far everything is fine, but we rarely see him drink. We spray him everyday and he sometimes drinks off the walls, though it doesn't...

    just wanted to point out if no one knew. on his videos the bottles he uses to get his snakes to drink from are exactly identicle to tattoo wash bottles and you can get them off ebay for about 3-4 quid. its quite interesting to watch them drink too

    Hi, I have a Hermanns tortoise and he doesnt seem to drink very often, I find it a bit of a struggle to get him to actually drink from his water bowl! Any ideas on how to encourage him? I think he gets enough water through his food and I have tried wetting it a little just for a bit extra water...

    Is anyone else amazed at how much snakes can drink in one go?! Just changed my adult corns water bowl she's come straight out and drunk so much it needs refilling :gasp: and she's going back for more now :lol2: She's drinking out of a guinea pig food bowl so it's not exactly a small bowl either...

    We've had our agama a few days, he doesn't have a water bowl and we've been advised not to give him one. He does have a shallow rock pool with little steps down and we spray his viv with a spray bottle every day. His previous owners said that he drinks from the pool but we haven't seen him do...
