    Hi, I am a uni student looking into getting a corn snake or a rosy boa. I have never done this before and wanted to know whether it would be a good idea to get a snake now or wait a bit for when I have settled down. I do move around quite a bit and I am planning to go on holidays for a week or...

    Alright so long story short, I now know why people don't like hex tanks when compared to normal rectangular tanks. After I re-homed my angels I considered trying a crayfish or maybe a couple of African Clawed frogs but I think I want to give reptiles a shot. My tank dimensions are: 21" height...

This is the rest, please give opinions or tell me if it looks good to go ahead...

    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...

  9. Rehoming Classifieds
    Good Evening Everyone, I am looking to re-home my beloved Bearded Dragon. I am soon to be moving out and money is going to be very tight. It's not something I want to do, but don't want him to be suffering because of my finances. I have had him for 5 years, when I brought him at just a few...
  10. Newbie Advice
    I am looking to rehome a bearded dragon in the near future have done lots of googling and think I am nearly there with the general set up, have also spoken to a few pet shops with general care etc but it seems that there are a lot of conflicting views on not only set ups but care. Have gone for...
  11. Lizards
    Hi, I am thinking about getting a lizard and I have done quite a lot of research but I have some questions for owners. How much more time to bearded dragons take to care for than a leopard gecko? At the moment I am leaning towards a beardie but how often do you need to feed them and what is...
  12. Spiders and Inverts
    Hi all! I was thinking about trying to breed one of the most interesting arachnid species in Britain, Megabunus diadema. Have a look at it on google, it looks so cool! On top of that it's parthanogenic, so it should be a really fun species to breed! As its a native Brit, I was planning on...
  13. Newbie Advice
    Hi all, I'm (hopefully) going to be a first time reptile keeper. I'm attracted to bearded dragons because I understand they're diurnal, amenable to being handled and generally a good pet. The negative is the size they obtain - I would prefer it if they were smaller, but hey ho. I'm not going to...

    So I joined this site a little while ago after stalking through the topics. I started doing work experience at a Pets at Home store which got me to have some proper experience in caring for reptiles and almost immediately I fell in love with the corn snakes and was determined to get one at some...

  16. Amphibians
    Hey, I've been wanting to keep poison dart frogs for some time now but am only used to dealing with dry habitat animals. Mainly bearded dragons and Leo's and a few snake species. My main question is how difficult is it to maintain the humidity levels within the terrarium? I was thinking on...
  17. Amphibians
    I'm currently using my 90x45x45cm Exo Terra Viv for my beardie but im upgrading him to a wooden one and I was hoping I could get some frogs to go in there after it's been cleaned out. At first I wanted some poison frogs as they climb a little bit but aren't just standard terrestrial frogs but...
