    Just today I switched my leopard geckos tank from reptile carpet to eco earth. She's my first reptile, and under a year old, so having read everything about impaction as a beginner I was too nervous to not go with the safest option. It's been a couple months now and I've learned a lot and...

    this is quite complicated to get right - In the warmer times , my heat lamp (on stat) is barely on , just heats for a bit in morning . So I swapped for lower bulb , a bit better but still, fact it not on much means not much of a hot spot and variance I don't like having to swap bulbs because...

    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...

    I have my leopard gecko on both a heat mat and a deep heat projector. We upgraded to a deep heat projector and didn’t think there would be any harm in having both. Do you think this okay or should we remove the heat mat?

    Im currently heating my kenyan with 150 Wat Ceramic heat emitter but im looking to improve things. So as I was going though my reptile supplies not in use I realized I could potentially make a much better set up, my plan was ditching the ceramic as her primary heat source and switching to a 20...

    Hey all, Im planning on upgrading my corn to a 6x2x2 vivarium in the future, question is will one heat source be enough? I was reading the leopard gecko page on face book and they recommend a heat source on both sides of an enclosure for anything 5x2x2 or above, was wondering will this apply to...

    It's my first BRB and the first time building an enclosure. He is currently in an 45 x 45 x 30 glass viv which just doesn't cut it - I want over head heating and less visibility on the sides so he has more privacy. My plan originally was just to go all-in and build a 4 x 2 x 2 or 3 x 2 x 2. I...

    Hello! I thought I would share these two videos I posted last week. I am slowly attempting to improve the care for the animals I keep.

I got him from someone else, and there are a few problems with the terrarium and set-up I was given along with him (Dealing with heating and substrate).
