    Hi all, On my dog walk today as we walked into a small copse of trees, I found a tiny little toadlet right on top of a big mound of dirt. Whenever I find little critters I always pick them up briefly to look at them, but instead of putting it right back, realised there was something incredibly...

    Hi, I have a nearly 3 year old Carolina corn snake. I think he’s male but I’m not sure. I had him out for some handling and to clean his tank, and noticed 3 scab type things. One on his tail, under his cloaca and two on the underside of his stomach. I’m attaching some pictures but they aren’t...

    Hello everyone, A few hours ago, I was out digging in my yard for yardwork. We spotted a toad that looked healthy at first, but when I picked it up to relocate it, I found both its back legs are significantly damaged. It still moves fairly well and its main body/vital organ area all look...

    Hey, I'm new to this forum and I wanted to see if anyone can help me out with my lizard. His name is Sully, and he's a 4 month old Merauke blue tongue skink. Earlier today he came out of his cave after I replaced his food bowl. He ate some of his food, and a little bit after that, he was rubbing...

    Hey all, So two weeks ago my little chap managed to get a small cut on his nose. I'm still not certain how, I suspect he simply missed whilst jumping again... But in any case; I made sure it stayed clean and even dabbed on a tiny bit of honey once or twice for good measure and he seems to be...

    Hey all, so I recently upgraded to a large Aluminum screen cage for my frilled dragon, but I quickly had to take him out of it because he keeps rubbing his face on the screen and it is causing him to bleed and wound his snout, and it wont heal because he keeps doing it. So now he is back in his...

    Hello, This is my first time posting on here. My friend has a neon tree dragon and part of one of his back legs is very swollen and black. His foot and toes on that leg look dead. It started out as a little bump on his foot and now it’s this. This lizard is VERY skittish and we do not know...

    I noticed last night that one of my leopard geckos has a strange blueish-pink mark on her knee. It doesn't feel rough or textured or anything, just the same as the rest of her skin, so if I didn't know better I'd say it looked like a bruise? But what do you think, should I be worried? (Also I...

    My bearded dragon has recently shed and it looks like he has a damaged/missing scale? No one messed about with him whilst he was shedding so it couldn't be that. I do have other pets (cats and dogs) but whenever he is out of his enclosure I have been with him so the other pets wouldn't have a...

    Hello, about 6 days ago when getting out my 1 and a half year old corn snake she leaned while I was picking her up for her daily holding time and got a small scratch on her neck, I immediately gently put her back down and closed up her habitat and called my local vet, she told me to not worry if...

    My leopard gecko females got into a fight while I was gone at work yesterday and one of them has a pretty nasty injury on her toe. It looks like all the skin was pulled off the end of her toe and it appears to be bent at a strange angle at the injury site. She did bleed a little too. I went...

    Ok I'm a complete newbie at reptiles and before you guys slate me over this let me explain. I work in a garden centre with an adjoining pet shop. They got in some leopard geckos, two look healthy but one if thought looked awful, very odd looking. So me being the sad soul took pity and took her...

    I just bought a Carolina corn snake from someone who said she had a small injury around her neck that was due to her trying to escape. However it happened, I would like to know if there was anything I could do to help her. He assured me she is shedding and feeding fine, just wanted to know if...

    One of my E. murinus flipped early this evening, and has just completed moulting successfully - I was worried about this one, she is a cracking big specimen, so I'm chuffed to bits! One of her fangs was permanently fully extended, and she was unable to retract it, she also had a missing leg...

    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...
