  1. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hello, Im a recent owner of 2 baby musk turtles. One of them (not sure if male or female) looks like it has swollen arms and legs but I’m not sure if it’s normal. My turtle has started basking in the evenings but that might just be because he/she has just learnt how to. In the mornings it...

    I have a newly rescued ball python, had her for about a week now. Her belly scales have always seemed to be slightly loose/raised since I got her, but no discoloration or anything so decided to just keep on eye on her. Her enclosure before I got her had several shedded skins, water bowl was...

    I recently became a leopard gecko owner. I know that they should be kept between 28-30 degrees. When my heat Mat is off, the tank sits around 24/26 naturally, so I turn it off at night, however when I turn it on the heat rises in there quickly. I will turn it on and come back to check in say 15...

    Hello I'm new to snake keeping and I just had a question for everyone who knows better than me( I'd assume everyone🤣) Without any morph I'm fairly happy with the differences however I have a morph and now I can't decipher which boa I have. I will attach picture/pictures. Also as a little game...

    Hello! I'm new to the platform I signed up for in hopes I could find some advice. I've had my Corn snake for around 6 years now, originally got her as a baby from an abusive past owner who I used to live with. She had bad care and was eventually lost for around four months when she was just a...
  9. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    So I rescued a turtle with both her front legs, one of back legs is missing a foot, the other leg is completely gone. I built her an enclosure and she seems to love it, but I think she may be gravid? She hasn’t been eating the last few days. Thursday she stayed in her water all day, Friday she...

    I want to adopt a leopard gecko, so I've been doing some research. I'm still new to all the care so I want to do more extensive research before I keep one. I'm really against just buying animals on impulse!!! So.. My question Is it safe to keep a leopard gecko under my bed if there's enough...

    Help identifying what's going on please, and thank you lol. One of this year's kenyan sand boa babies has a scale missing on its head, is otherwise normal. It was born that way, and has not changed after its first shed. Is there any chance this is a scaleless head gene? Its definitely not an...

    (First post here! Not in the UK but this forum looks active) I have a gargoyle gecko who just turned 1yo on the 19th. And this past year has been so tough. I bought the lizard from what seemed to be a reputable and knowledgeable breeder and the gecko was about 2 months old and weighed 4 grams...

    Hello, It's my first time posting on this forum, so I apologise if there's anything wrong with this post. I'm getting progressively worried with my pet California King Snake, 10 years of age, 5ft 5inch. He has a long standing issue of eating himself (roughly two years), with no known cause...

    I have one Crested Gecko and for a while I've just been handfeeding him(?), but he's going on a year old now, and I don't think I'd be able to provide sufficient food through only handfeeding. He's quite jumpy and It's really hard to get him to eat without freaking him out, and I'm worried he'll...

    Be kind please! Hi, I have a Rough Green Snake who's about 10 months old and I've had him since October 2020. He's CP and I got him from a reptile shop- they kept him in a tiny tupperware box in the dark and when feeding they'd hold him, he'd open his mouth in a threatened way and they shove...
