    Hello, my gecko is about 6 months old, and i started feeding him myself so he can work for his food. I was using tweezers i usually do when feeding him, and when he bit the crickets on the tweezers, i believe he got the tweezers stuck in his mouth. I was finally able to get the tweezers tip...

    Got a little question. I came into possession of a Hal. BTS with the very tip of its tail necrotic (like not even an inch) and while transporting it home, it fell off (which I think is good). It bled a bit so I dabbed it with a paper towel until it clotted and have been spraying Vetricine on it...

    My albino spider was in great condition yesterday and when I checked on her today her head is scratched and very red. It appears she has scratched the scales off the top of her head. She is stored in a 28q rack with a divider. She is on one half and two hatchlings are on the other side. I was...

    Hello all! A few days ago I had discovered a brown anole lizard clinging onto the inside of my AC unit outside after hearing a loud noise inside. It sounded like a rock was being bounced around in there. I saw the lizard and fished him out to take him inside. His leg was cut up pretty badly and...

    Hi All, I have a little question (maybe 2?) about my chameleon. He is a Panther Chameleon and is roughly 6.5 - 7 years old. I've owned him for 6 of those years and I can't remember if he was 6 months or a year old when I got him. He is also my first Chameleon too. This year has not...

    i've had my florida king snake for almost a month now and we know that the previous owners were not good to her as she was underfed and not handled enough etc. recently i noticed one of the scales on her underbelly near her tail was sticking up a bit with white (flesh i assume) underneath so i...

    Hi everyone, This is my first post, but unfortunately it is not on good terms. :sad: I own two bearded dragons, Coco, who is now 9, and Spike who is 5. This afternoon, I checked on my lizards as I always do, and found poor Spike in a terrible state. Crickets seemed to have attacked him and he...

    I just posted about identifing this frog and I think I have nailed it down to a southern leopard frog. My problem now is he seems very swollen around his belly and under his jaw. At first I thought just might be from his metamorphosis from tadpole to frog but it is not going away. Also the back...

    I found a young magpie earlier today that looks as though it's been hit by a car. One of its wings is broken and flapping rather uselessly. I've strapped it up with vet-wrap to stop it dangling but he/she is not overly impressed with my nursing skills. The SSPCA have said they'll only pts...

    Hello, I am a 24 years old girl living in Norway, and I am in desperate need of advice and help from you! You see... This morning I found a injured slow worm in our garden, the nabours cats must have gotten to it cause it has several puncture wounds. I first thought it was dead but it moved...

    So it seems that my five year old son accidentally squished the foot of a swinhoe's tree lizard when he shifted a box in the living room of our family's vacation home in Hualien, on the east coast of Taiwan. I can't just leave the poor thing to fend for itself. It can walk when I touch it, but...

He seems to be fine accept for his front left leg which has a small gash and he doesnt seem to be able to use...

    This gal was dumped in front of my work today in a box with some random weeds thrown in it for 'food'. She has a badly injured right rear leg; no obvious breaks on x-rays so I'm worrying it's an infection. There's a ton of fluid built up under the skin there and she can barely move it and it...

    My boyfriend and I just got a baby Nile Monitor the other day from a reptile convention. We have bearded dragon already and he has raised a monitor before. We checked him out and at the time he seemed fine. We brought him home and he went into his hide and didn't come out for over a day until we...

    Hello All, This is our first snake, a California Kingsnake. He is about two years old and was given to us (by someone who I believe caught him wild) one month ago. He shed the night before we got him. He eats live mice -- we tried switching him to frozen but he wasn't having it. At all. We...

    This is stumpy frog. On the 15th one of the neighbour’s cats got him and chewed off his back legs. I managed to get the cats off him and using help given and my experience he is now healing up well. He is regrowning muscle and the flaps of skin have fused back on to his legs I did look after a...
