  1. Snakes
    I've always known that most snakes will clear up before a molt after eyes blue and body dulls. However I was wondering if anyone here knows the science behind why/how this happens. It would seem the eyes would turn even more cloudy the looser the scale gets from the eye. Same with the body.

    Hi all, I have an adult Mexican Red Knee. She needs a clean viv and I have one prepared ready for her. I'm aware, though, that she last moulted around this time last year (it was early May, if I remember correctly). She's slow, she's off her food and she's got a very big bum. When is the...

    Hi all, my LP sling who's about 1-1.5cm molted 22 September, he's now sealed himself in his burrow just like he did before his Last molt. Is it normal for a small sling to molt twice in a month? Or would there be any other reason he's sealed himself in? Cheers

    My B Smithi started molting last night and today its flipped round and it's still got its carapace and opisthosoma still attached. Its legs are fine and I believe its spinnerets look ok. At the moment the spider is in the same place and not doing anything. At this point I just have some...
