    Hi guys, I haven't been here for so long, but I've had such a health scare with my girl Ember recently that just got partially solved, hopefully (assuming there's no complications!), as when I lifted up her hide scared I might find a dead snake (a constant anxiety at the moment with her strange...

    Hi, I've scowered the Internet and can't find much on this, wondering if any one can help? I've had midi for about 3 months when I first got her she was skittish but eating fine.

    I've been collecting different species of snakes for a couple of years now, the last of which is the European rat snake. He's still very young and I've been told he was a good eater, but no matter what i try i just can't get him to eat anything. I've been weighing him weekly to make sure he...

    I have a female corn snake that is a little less than 2 years old. She has eaten consistently her whole life but has been refusing food for several weeks now. When I offer a mouse, she seems somewhat interested for a few seconds, but then just ignores it. Even though she is refusing this, I...

When they arrived with me, they were sick and I immediately took them to the vets, they had an RI. For almost 2 months they had to have injections every other day as well as vet visits. She...

    Hi all, I've made a post about this before, regarding my Crested Gecko Larry. I got him in October and he weighed around 22-23 grams. Since then he's never eaten by himself, and will only eat live food when offered. I've given and tried all the regular suggestions of starving him, feeding him...

    I have just purchased two Indonesian Whites Tree Frogs and placed them in my ExoTerra 18x18x18 two days ago. They are super small and maybe a couple weeks/month old. The problem is, however, that they have not wanted to eat any of the crickets I put near them, they don’t go into the water bowl...

    Hey all, My post didn't get any response the other week but I know I'm not the only one who has dealt with a lizard with liver disease so I would really appreciate some thoughts. My leo has now not eaten of his own accord for a good 3 weeks - last time I bought wax worms (the only thing he...

    This is a follow-up thread from my previous one explaining how I got the turtle and to identify it, I am pretty certain it is a Florida Cooter. He refuses to eat mealworms or turtle sticks. The problem is not due to the temperatures though, as the basking temps are 91-94f and water temp is at...
