    Hi! I've been lurking for a while but finally felt that I needed to get some advice. A little over two weeks ago (26 Jan), I got an Ophistreptus guineensis millipede, along with two other species (an A. gigas and a Spirostreptidae sp. 8) that I brought home. I've been monitoring the humidity...

    Hello, my leopard gecko is only 5 months old. Few days ago she started to have problems with her back legs, basically they don't seem to support her when she walks and they bend in all directions. So I did some reasearch and most people suggested it was MBD so I gave her some calci worms hoping...

    Hello! I picked up another baby gecko today, his owner told me he had a clutch hatch and this baby came out completely blind and he wasn't sure if he could care for it since it was having trouble eating. I got the little guy and he's very fiesty, he seems an ok size for a hatchling but he's...

    So we have three turtles, they are all roughly about a year old now. But what really worries me is that they are not all the same size. I am worried my smaller turtle is not getting enough as the biggest one is taking all of the smallest one's food. Also just today, I noticed the biggest one was...

    I went on holiday for a week and came back to find my adult ball pythons' mouth was open. Upon closer inspection I noticed that its glottis was blocked with a thick creamy white substance, almost rubber like. I managed to squeeze it out but I'm worried wether this problem will return in the...

    Hello, I've got a gorgeous Iberian spur thighed who's now just over a year old. Normally she can't get enough of her food and is stomping about her enclosure for most of the day. I went away last weekend and had my mum look after her. Since I've been back, she seems very subdued. She's always...

    Hi, I have a russian tortoise he is two years old. I've noticed this past week he's been very lethargic, I have to move him to his basking light every morning, he has been eating fine then goes back to his hide for the rest of the day.

    Hello there I have a 2 year old male horsefield and I just noticed that today he was leaning up with his head resting on the side making subtle clicking sounds or some may say gulps, his mouth was closed and I don't think he had just eaten, is this ok?

    hey guys my beardy has what I think is the hiccups. he'll be laying on his log and he will have strong hiccups, to the extant where his body jumps. I was just wondering if this is normal or if anyone else has experienced it. I have looked into RI and I don't think that is the case. He is...

    My Andean milksnake has been acting really stangely this past week... he's been constantly roaming around his cage, which he rarely does, as if he is hungry, but I fed him twice this week which I have never done before so he shouldn't be hungry.. he has clean water and a clean cage too so I...
