    I just got my first ball python Friday. He is in a 25-30 gal tank with a screen lid that has a cover. He had really gross dry mulch when I got him. Humidity was at 10. I went and got coconut fiber because our house stays around 65 (two AC Units) and dry. He has several hides. Went from a very...

    Hi everyone, This is my enclosure for my baby male western hognose snake, it is 1m x 0.45cm. I've put a mix of soil and sand, about 4" thick. I'm waiting to get a larger cage cover for the basking lamp, there is also a heat mat with a thermostat on the left side for night time. (I don't get my...

    While shopping for expanding foam I found what i think is an absolute bargain. What do you think. Exo terra nano/mini terrariums are small glass boxes for £35-£60 and they still rust and leak sometimes. This is a graveyard candle holder from Wilkos. Its a solid piece of glass and metal with a...

    I've been using the deep heat projectors for a while and I'm using roof slate under the lamp. I'm wanting to get a proper slate rock like the kind people have in there garden. I'm really struggling to find some. I've been to b&q and all my local garden centres. I've checked ebay etc, and local...

    So that's the setup, least in its current status. I'll likely add some driftwood possibly some more rocks. Might move a thing around here and there. I'm sure everyone knows how that goes. Its a 75 gallon, 48 x 18 x 21 tank. Lid I'm working on currently plus the height of the heat lamp...

    I bought a juvenile CWD yesterday, and my roommate and I did a bunch of research, got him (we're calling it a boy but he's too young to have defined marks yet) a tank we assumed was a good size and everything to go in it. Today I quickly realized it was just too small for him, he was jumping and...

    Evening all, I am making a new tank for my poison dart frogs and it is my first time making the background myself. I want to do artificial rocks. I have already done the sculpting part from stryofam. My question is about sealant. It needs to be waterproof as I am including a small waterfall...

    I am building a terrarium (no animals, just plants) and I want to incorporate a small waterfall feature. I have seen many videos on YouTube doing tutorials but I am really struggling to find the right equipment. Swells do a little waterfall kit but the reviews are not great. Could anyone...

    Hey all, I'm after a bit of advice. I have 2 female and 2 male Leopard geckos, all of which are housed separately. My two ladies don't get on and I'm no looking to breed. I've been thinking about building a conjoined vivarium, because right now they're all housed in different sized tanks and...

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows what the substrate composition is like for Ackie monitors in nature. I really want to get it as close as possible it seems I need substrate that allows for tunnels to hold shape, stay humid but also be breathable? If anyone could help point to some info on...

    I’ve been wondering if I could do this for a week now, and now I’ve came to ask about this subject. I want my gecko to feel in the wild, and not trapped up in a cage. My gecko at the moment is in this habitat.. 20g Long Fake Plants Log Hides, and a Desert Hide Sand Substrate on Cool, and Moist...

    Hi All I currently have a spare ExoTerra 45x45x30 which was used for my cornie when he was smaller. I don't want to get rid of the viv so looking for something to go in it. I've got my eyes on a really nice year old leopard gecko so was wondering if this would be suitable as a temporary house...

    Hello. This is a bit of a random question. After a while of searching i haven't heard of many other reptiles that live in a bearded dragons natural habitat, aside from the Thorny Devil and the Woma python. Does anyone know of any? Just to clarify and to make sure nobody gets concerned, this...

    Is it ok to install a heatlamp sideways in a viv as per the attahced photo? I will be getting him a taller viv at some point but I wondered if this would suffice for now. Thanks Snake Viv by Jason Sykes, on Flickr

    Thanks all for letting me be a part of the forum. Never cared for a reptile before my WD. We have various other animals with my wife being a trusty of an animal charity. However I saw this lady in the pet shop and bought her instantly. I left her with the pet shop for 4 weeks to give me...
  19. Snakes
    I'm hoping to attract some snakes to my garden, as we see them very rarely here and I'm interested in photographing them. It seems that sheets of tin are the best bet, but with the temperature fluctuating between 28 and 38C (I live in the south of France), surely the snakes don't want to get any...
