    Hi guys I’m new to owning reptiles. I bought an adorable baby ackie as my first reptile a week ago and I could really use some tips on “taming” the little guy or at least making him comfortable with my presence. By default he’s already very confident for a baby , he eats the first few crickets...

    Hi, I’m currently in the aquarium hobby, and have been for 3 years, but sadly my aquariums are getting too heavy for my furniture (only 30ltrs!) and that means I’m likely gonna have to take them down and rehome my shrimps and snails. So I want to try reptile keeping instead! I’m thinking of...
