Hi. New here but had tortoises and terrapins ages.
Anyway i have a male spurthigh tortoise approx 13 year old.

Everyone seems to ask about clipping but no one seems to ask about how long they should be before clipping. I've googled around for a fair bit but can't find any advice.
I've never clipped his nails and he seems happy and they don't seem overly long so this is in some respects of academic...
Hey guys, how do you take measurements of weight and length of your snakes??? Our CRB just will not stop moving! Although he has stopped trying to kill us, which is nice :P But he's just so inquisitive, he wants to climb up the bed, or the door, or our arms, it's just impossible to get him to...
How do you guys measure your snakes?
I'm having a lot of trouble trying to keep records of my snakes growth. They're just too damn wriggly.
The best I have at the moment is measuring their sheds which I know is not accurate as they stretch.
I have a flexible measuring tape but I'm useless at...
I'm looking to get my first Crested Gecko in April, and am currently shopping around for the required set up and accessories :)
If I got a Gecko that was a few months old, would a 30x30x45 Exo Terra Suffice? If it did, how long would it last?
Or should I invest in a 60x45x45 Exo Terra and let...
My Darwin is around about two years old, maybe a couple of months more. I know every snake is different, but if you could have a guess what would the average weight and length for that age be? What's good for breeding?
Hi guys, I created a chart a while back that Ive been using. You can use it all year around and can keep records of monthly weight/length data of up to 7 snakes. You can always print off as many as you need if your collection goes over 7 but im not expecting this to be a huge hit anyway just...
Hey guys, my girlfriend has a spare 4x2x2 Vivarium and has always wanted a boa, i believe the maximum length snake to put into that vivarium would be 6foot. So my question is, Which Boa's could be housed in that vivarium?
I was just curious about the length and weight of my Horsfield Tortoise, I think I read somewhere about some sort of graph/ratio sort of thing to measure your tortoise too, I was just wondering if someone had the link or graph for it?
My guy is 10.1cm in length, and weighs 264 grams...

How big is your Bearded Dragon? Mine is currently 8 months old and sitting just a smidge under 21 inches (snout to tail tip) is this normal :blush:
Anyway how big is yours and what age is it? Lets try and get an average :2thumb:
I've looked in the "Sticky's" for info on relative length/age/weight but couldn't seem to find anything so I was just wondering if anyone could offer any info on what sort of weights/lengths my corn should be for her (guessing its a she!) age?!
We were told she was 10 weeks old when we got her...
