    I bought my first T a couple of weeks ago, a Brazilian Black, as after all the research this was one of the 'best beginners' and a local shop had them in stock. I know this is such a newbie question but... after having it a week it had covered the entrance to it's burrow. It never accepted...

    Well I suppose all t owners have to experience it at some time, but it still sucks when you lose a t. I have 5 P. metallicas from the same sac, which I have been growing on. They all moulted last week on various days.However, b1 moulted on Thursday and when I checked them this morning, b1 was in...

    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...

    Hi guys and girls I have only been keeping t's since the beginning of the year so bear with me if this seems like a silly thing to ask. I have had an m.balfouri for several months, and I actually saw the little bugger at 5 this morning for the first time since about march (and I'm not ashamed...

    I've just had a B. smithi moult and there seems to be something still attached to it's abdomen. It moulted fin and the moult is intact, the only difference between this moult and other moults I had is that the B. smithi didn't split the sides of the abdomen in the normal way. It has only split...

    After unboxing my new delivery of 11 T's, I thought it was about time to start feeding all of my others. I was down to my last 5 and noticed that my Golden knee has flipped. Now she never showed any sign of going into moult but there she is :2thumb: My main concern is where she has chosen to...

    My genic shed about a week ago and instead of coming out with a nice oval shaped arse, it looks like an hourglass shape going in at the sides. This normal? cheers x

    So I have had my dragon Critter for two years now. Every time he moults it has never been for more than a few days, a week at the most. His moult he is currently in has been going on for at least 3 weeks. Is there anything wrong or is he just having a randomly long moult?

    Hi all, Those of you who've seen me on here before will know that I've got Ford, a CB10 male Royal Python. He's an inquisitive fellow, often coming out of his vivarium for a wander around the flat. We've had Ford for about 12 weeks now, he's feeding fine (one jumbo mouse per week) but refused...

    I've got a chile rose juvenile which has burrowed and walled herself in (say its female, no idea though). I thought to myself they sometimes do this when due to shed but am getting worried as shes been in there for almost 3 weeks now. Should I be worried?

    Hello, I bought me a little ghost mantis online last week, he arrived on the tuesday. On the website it was stated as an L3-L4. It ate a fly on the day he arrived and a small moth during the night, watching him catch his fly and nibble it's head off was awesome :D. but after that i had three...

    My slings have moulted in their web-hide thingies. Do burrowing spiders moult in their burrows? If so, how do you get the moult out? Thanks.
