    Over the weekend I rehomed a 12 month old male crestie which I have been told was only ever fed live food for it wouldn't take repashy. I can understand the repashy bit for on placing a little blob on his nose he showed an active dislike of it when he did lick some! However, after 2 days of...

    hi guys, I am well aware that royals go off food and that temps / habitat play a big part in their eating regime etc. However, this is slightly different. I went to Hamm and bought 7 royals (various morphs). I went through the usual questions i.e. sex (asking them to prove it), weight...

    Hi guys, hope you're enjoying the lush weather :mf_dribble: Just a quick question.. Both my royals are turning their nose up to rats.. So if I were to keep feeding them mice what size/ how many would you recommend? My female is just over 800g and nearly 2 years old, and my male is 9 months old...

    Right, so we all know how fussy royals can be. I just want some opinions... The first time I fed my BP boy, I had defrosted his Mouse with my other's rat... and he ate no problems. I covered the viv because I was planning on being up for a while... Next time I feed him... nothing. Mouse...

    my bearded dragon had not eaten in 4 days, i tryied crickets and locusts as well as its usual veg and still was not really intrested. the only live feed he has never turned down is meal worms (before you say yes i know not a staple) but after not eating for 4 days i hate to give it something to...

    Pretty much said it all in the title really, only thing I can think of that would have made a difference is that the rat was defrosted in the same water as a bunny, either way she is looking nice and fat and contented and I am chuffed and quite relieved, hopefully she will continue to enjoy...

Hope weighed 20g, both eyes were sealed shut, she didn't eat and was covered in scars. I had to feed her baby food to...
