    I was tending my crested gecko's substrate today and noticed a tiny light brown microfauna I don't think I have seen before. The enclosure has been doing well for over a year with dwarf white isopods and springtails, and no new animals have come into the house for months. I know the pictures...

    I've had my two giant african land snails for around eight months, and for the first six months everything was fine. I keep them on coir substrate, cleaned and changed their tank regularly and they grew and seemed happy. Two months ago I decided I wanted to try and set up an eco-setup, and did...

    Hi guys, I bought a baby RT boa from Doncaster reptile show but I've noticed this week, she was staying in her water bowl all the time. I thought it was maybe the temps/humidity or just her settling in but last night I checked the water bowl and there was dead mites in there. Really...

    I've had this girl for just over 2 weeks. Took her out today and found something odd with her eye. I didn't see it until looking back at the pictures, I got her out and tried to clean it with a wet paper towel. It looked a little better. Is it mites or substrate? https://imgur.com/gallery/r7AqGnX

    OK, so last year my snake went through a pushing against the glass really hard phase and he ended up getting a large sore spot on his nose and his face was pushed in slightly from it. He hasn't been glass pushing for a while but started again last week and his nose is already slightly red again...

    Okay, so I’m low-key freaking out because today was the day set for when I’d planned to clean out my snake (yr and a half old ball python) and everything was going okay until when I was shovelling her substrate from her vivarium and I saw these tiny minute creatures crawling around. My first...

    Do you guys have any tips on telling the difference between dirt and mites on a snake? my snake is currently living on aspen bedding, but she was previously on coconut fiber, I switched for aesthetic purposes and because she likes to burrow, and so there was still a fair amount of it left in the...

    I was changing soil for my L2 Allomyrina dichotoma grubs and saw that they are mites-infested. The mites are small white stuff that cluster on the head capsule and grooves of the grub's body. I am experimenting by isolating 2 grubs into a container with dry moss, some white-rotted wood flakes...

    I got my ball python, Pi, late May I believe. I have a vivarium that is the equivalent of a 40 gallon breeder tank in floor space, and it is naturalistic/bioactive, but I don't know how well that is going. I have this dish of clean water in there for her, dechlorinated and everything obviously...

    I've had my eye on a beautiful adolescent fire skink from my local pet store for a couple weeks now, and I'm really tempted to get him. I make weekly trips as it is to get bugs for my tarantula and mice for my snakes so I see him all the time. Here's the problem: last time I was there, I noticed...

    I have an adult Red Tail Boa. I've had her for a few months and just recently discovered that she has mites. She must have had them since I got her from the previous owner as I don't own any other pets. She's been soaking in her water bowl a lot and I spotted a mite while looking at her one day...

    Hi, i'm making this post for a friend. She has recently bought a royal python for her little girl. She bough the snake from a reptile/pet shop, when she bought him the snake was fairly pale and it's scales were raised a little, but the shop keeper said that the snake was probably just...

    I cant seem to get rid of the mites on my albino boa. I have tried mite sprays and the vet gave me ivermectin spray. Nothing seems to work. He is in a glass aquarium now with nothing in it. Any tricks or things I can try.
