    Hey everyone! I have a Royal Python and a Corn Snake - the royal in a 4'x2'x2' viv and the corn in a 4' viv but slightly shorter and less deep. At the moment I have 2 hides in there for them both, at either end of the vivs, some bits of wood on the floor for them to slither over, and a fake...

    Hi there! Bit of an odd question. So, I have an adult BTS I'm desperate to entertain. Although I take her out when I come home, I'm worried that she doesn't get a whole lot of enrichment while I'm at work. As such, I'm always looking for new ways to make her life a little more interesting...

    I am always trying new things to keep my animals happy and stimulated. With my dogs it has always been easy. They are eager to train, play, go places, and learn new things. We have built agility equipment, trained them to use a treadmill (a blessing on cold midwestern days), and more. However...

    Discuss the above, maybe pass ideas around. So as I'm the OP, I'll start off with my Argus Monitor 'Pumba' Got this Robin Nest from work. My idea being that he would have to search hi and low for anything that was a treat for him. I use the nest to hide Quail eggs. Twice a month 2 will go...

    Hi, Just wondering if anybody has kept hatchlings in (full adult sized) large vivariums? It seems to be generally accepted that hatchlings need to be kept in small spaces to feel secure or they won't feed.... However, if lots hiding places and cover are provided (allowing the snake to at...

    Alright guys and girls I've got a 5 month old crestie and I'm going to move the little critter into a new glass viv in a month or so. First question, is there any things that people have found are really good for crested geckos and their habitat?? Anything that is really well used by them or...

    Hi Everyone, After seeing many designs that people have made themselves using poly and grout, I have became curious to make one myself, however I am somewhat lacking the expertise. I was wondering whether anyone knew where I could get them custom made for a reasonable price? I would like...

    So Sebby loves climbing on the thermostat probe wire and while that exploring is good for him, it moves the probe which sets off the thermostat temperature alarm. You may have noticed that your snake also loves to climb things in the enclosure and likes to investigate new things. I wanted to get...

    Hi all, we would like to put some branches into our corn snake vivs. One is 36x18x18 and the other is 36x21x18. The artificial ones seem very small and very expensive, so what natural (native) trees are suitable and how would we prepare them for use? Look forward to any advice.

    With my only pets being rats, i have to try and keep them busy by providing various things with them to play with and to get them thinking. Whilst at my boyfriends (who has a bearded dragon) it got me thinking about if they need enrichment. I know that mammals have a much larger brain in...

    How many people give their cornsnakes lots of stuff to climb on, or keep them in a vertical viv (more height than floor space)? I've been to 2 animal collections at colleges, and they kept their corns in vertical vivs, with lots of branches to climb on and not a lot of floor space. The first...
