    I got my first leopard gecko back in December, but I'm worried that he has lost interest in food and isn't gaining any weight. He didn't start eating properly for almost a fortnight after coming home, but then was eating 5-10 mealworms every night when I handfed him. However, after a couple of...

    I had a lot of trouble getting my corn snake to eat when I first got him, tried various techniques but nothing worked, I finally tried Tuna scenting and placing the snake in a small container with the mouse and this worked, since then it's still the only way he'll take food from me. I have him...

    so I got Wyrm, the male Saharan sand boa, from a reptile expo on August 25th, 2019 At the time of posting this, it's almost been two months and he hasn't eaten at all. He pooped when I first got him, about 8/27, so he had eaten before. I've tried: leaving him in a deli cup with a f/t (both...

    Hello. I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I purchased a juvenile black roughneck monitor about a month or so ago. The monitor was very friendly and active in the store and had a good weight. I built an enclosure that's 2 m x 1+ m x 2.2 m (WxDxH) with a basking shelf (about 54 degrees)...

    We are in a bit of misunderstanding with our female leopard gecko who isn’t eating like she used to. My brother, who takes care of the gecko says that these past few months are their natural breeding months and they slow down considerably when offered food, but I don’t know if that is true or...

    I recently adopted a 2-year-old female leopard gecko on Friday. The previous owner told me that she ate the day before. When I received her she was in a rinky dinky 10-gallon terrarium with 1 hide and ground walnuts as a substrate. The next day I bought a 20-gallon terrarium that has 2 hides and...

    My leopard gecko, Godzilla, is obsessed with calcium. He absolutely loves it, his eyes get huge when he sees a cricket or mealworm dusted in it. He has also numerous times licked excess calcium off my fingers and will lick it off the bottom of his tank. He has always been inconsistent with his...

Basically, I have a 7y/o female cornsnake who for the past 2 months refuses to go to the warm end of her tank and won't eat. A bit of background - I rehomed this corn in July...

    I'm new here when it comes to posting on the forums, but have been through hundreds of posts looking for answers when I first started to care for terrapins.

    I got a Leo about 5 days ago, she hasn't pooped and only eats if I literally hold the food against her snout. However I was told she was tame and could be handled as soon as I got her, I've come to realise that I shouldn't have been handling her, I'm going to leave her to properly settle and not...
