    So I have 2 whites tree frogs around a year maybe a year and half old. I feed them predominantly brown crickets. They have grown a lot since I got them around 8-9 months ago. One is and has always been larger than the other and has a bigger appetite. They seem to get along well though. The...

    Heya, So, back when I got Cookie (my axanthic royal python), it took me some time to finally get him to eat. But thanks to all of you guys (thanks again), I got him to eat and he's been a devouring monster since. I upgraded him to weaned rats 2 weeks ago. Was very happy that that went with 0...

    Hello guys! I would like to ask for your thoughts on the weight of my leopard gecko and if he is a little obese. If so, how many crickets/worms for average feeding? I also recently got another leopard gecko and she seems to be more energetic and better at hunting. He completly ignores the...

    I have one Crested Gecko and for a while I've just been handfeeding him(?), but he's going on a year old now, and I don't think I'd be able to provide sufficient food through only handfeeding. He's quite jumpy and It's really hard to get him to eat without freaking him out, and I'm worried he'll...

    My male rosy has refused a meal since November and is starting to get skinny. I believe he is trying to find a mate, as it is spring, he shed 2 weeks ago after a short brumation. I increased his tank on the warm end from 80 to 87 (f) after recommendations and added more hides. The humidity is at...

    Hi, apologies for any errors I have never posted before. I've had a baby black house snake for about 4 months now, not sure his exact age but he was pretty tiny when i got him and I'd say he's now just off a foot in length (shoelace size width). He's currently in a a small plastic tub which...

    Hello, We have a YBS that is around 7 years old. Seems healthy and active enough, and has always eaten pretty much whatever we throw in there. We tried to keep it mainly to leafy green vegetables, supplemented with pellets, but often put in other fruit and veg. Pretty much everything was eaten...

    I am a new reptile owner, and I recently (2 days ago) picked up a juvenile bearded dragon from petco. I am unsure of exactly what to feed it, how much to feed it, and how frequently. Since yesterday evening, I have fed it a full container of dusted crickets, and around 12 or so dusted mealworms...

Breeder I got him off was feeding him on small locusts and mealworms. Also bought a few wax worms today just as treat though. Was just wondering...

    My Dasypeltis Gansi hasn't eaten in about two months, and I'm a bit worried for her. Anyone have any tips on how to convince her to eat? Or should I just syringe feed her? She refuses the button quail eggs I offer her, and I don't have any smaller eggs available anywhere.

    The button quail eggs I ordered for my dasypeltis gansi should arrive in about two days, but just in case she doesn't eat them, I want to know if anybody has any tips on how to convince egg eaters to eat.

    Hi, Got our new Leopard Gecko on Saturday, and I'm going to follow the breeders feeding pattern, which means tonight will be my first attempt at feeding. The breeder used kitchen roll as a substrate so she could loose feed mealworms. I'm using eco earth so can't loose feed. My eventual plan is...
