    I've often thought of this in the past so thought I would put it out to the masses to get your opinions. Do you think that snakes which are usually nocturnal in the wild can change their natural instincts, because of being fed during the day time, and become diurnal...will they learn that food...

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas how to record video of nocturnal reps in their viv? Ideally this would record straight to my laptop and equipment should cost under £30 (although this is not set in stone as I am completely unaware of the appropriate price for my...

    Hi, just a quick question. I'm usually in the tortoise section, so know nothing about furry things. My manager recently got a APH, which she loves. The only thing is, she gets up really early (3-4am) and will sit in the dark and silence for hours so not to disturb the APH. I thought this...

    I have family in Australia and they are fascinated by the fact that we keep Australian "wildlife" species here as pets. They were curious to know if many gecko species are kept commonly over here? And now my interest is piqued too! They also said that all their gecko species are nocturnal - is...

  18. Newbie Advice
    Hi there, Sorry for all the new threads I'm posting, but I thought advice here might be helpful not only for me, but other newbies.
