  1. Spiders and Inverts
    My AGTM is currently in a large flat exo faunarium, which is fine for her but with all the vents it's a bit annoying for viewing, and the lid a bit flimsy.

    Hi, I have had my male leopard gecko for about 4 years now, and I am doing a custom tank build where there will be two levels; one is a bunch of tunnels and the other level is a surface level. It is a 20 Gallon Long, but with the new tunnels it will have a lot more surface area. Because of this...

    Hi there, do you guys think that an indoor small animal cage like the ones used for rabbit s and guinea pigs could be suitable or adapted to be used for blue tounged skinks? I'm talking about the plastic kind with mostly plastic tops apart from some mesh or wire at the very top for heating...

    I have done plenty of reading and decided I am going to go ahead with the argus my local pet shop has had one in for ages and the poor little guy is in way too small of a viv and never gets handled mainly because I don't think they dare get him out, so as a result he gets very little exercise...

    Right so I was wondering what everyone's routines for their BDs vitamins are? Since we want to make sure we aren't giving him too much of something and not enough of something else. For the time we have had our Toothless (2 months - I know, shameful) we have just been giving him Pure Calicum...
