so recently I've been thinking about getting my first snake but cant decide what would be suitable for me.
I really love royal pythons for multiple reasons and would have this down as my first choice, but have been told not so great for a beginner snake. I study animals at college and...
As per title really, I was wondering what peoples opinions were for feeding the snakes I have as sometimes one or two will still seem hungry after feeding while others seem happy to skip meals and refuse to eat periodically.
As I'm housebound and don't have a large enough freezer to buy in...
Hi, I have just had a bit of a heated debate with someone on a Facebook group at out wether keeping reptiles is expensive or not. Unfortunately I could only get some much of my opinion across before my post was deleted, but it has made me think about wether it is expensive or not.
My partner bought a 3 month old boa a couple of weeks back, it was delivered to us by the seller in a rub with very few air holes, the water bowl had tipped over, and the snake had been in the wet container for about an hour long journey.
We quickly transferred it into a new, dry rub with...
I'm quite new at this forum thing so forgive me if I have posted this in the wrong area.
I have had a leopard gecko for around five years now and have always wanted reptiles and thought I would go bigger when ready. I have a partner who keeps snakes so between us we are getting...
Hi, I am serious considering getting a couple of whites tree frogs.
What are people opinions and experience with this species :)
Also how many would people say is an acceptable social group size.
Thanks in advance
Hello guys, My first post has arrived! :)
I currently have two freshwater turtle. 1 YBS and 1 Mississipi Map, both bought within a week of each other around 3-4 months ago and currently both are about 2 inches (maybe a little less) in size. So still quite small, and the nipping doesnt hurt...
I am looking to get a new viv for my bearded dragon. She is currently in a 3ft x2ft x2ft (the one she came rescued in) and she is just over 14 inches long. I already think she looks too big for her viv and I've only had her 5 days!
I get paid in 3 weeks so am looking then to get a new viv but...
It's my birthday in a couple of weeks and wifey is going to get me a snake:2thumb:
I already have a King, a Corn ,and a Garter, so I want something different.
Nothing that is going to get bigger than 6/7 ft.
So what are your suggestions/opinions and why?
I'm getting stressed and i'm sure it's probably me over thinking it and worrying to much about the snake.
But i'm movin my boa into a new enclosure since the first time i had him and i'm not sure what i should have in it?
I got it and it has the green carpet like material, should i...
No, he's not a normal. He was purchased as a morph; just want to see what the general consensus is on him - if you'd guess what he is from a picture or not? And what you're thoughts are on him.
I don't have a decent light box so was trying different back grounds to get his true...
I am personally not a fan of morphs at all and i dont like the idea of "manufacturing" a morph of that species.
In my opinion the standard Leopard Gecko or Bearded Dragon for example are so much more stunning and beautiful.
What are other peoples opinions?
Can you please give me YOUR opinions from your PERSONAL experiences with a pet shop/reptile store? either here or abroad (but do say which it was), you don't have to name names, though if a particularly good shop, im sure the names wouldn't hurt :)
Can be bullet pointed or quick sentences...
Right so I've heard some bad excuses for not liking snakes, but how pitiful is this?
I understand some people don't like them for various reasons but because "they don't have any fur on them, they don't run around and because they are just there" is the stupidest one yet. Basically what she is...
Hey guys. I was just wondering what the overall feel was on peoples favourite T genus? Its a really tough one for me as i really love my Pokies. Love em love em love em! Having said that i reckon i'd have to go with the Baboons overall just because of the variety involved. The thing i love about...
I have placed this post today to ask people from the forum, in the lizard section for their opinions.
I basically want to set a business up in the selling of mesh cages for the arboreal species (geckos/chameleons etc.)
I have 7 geckos myself and have recently purchased cages that were a...
First of all this isnt intended to cause issues but more or opinions.
My local reptile/pet shop have a large show enclosure holding 5 carpet pythons of various types most im told are coastalXjungle.
They are in a approx 8foot by8foot by 8foot ish room it has to plants in the corner skulls on...
I have a corn snake at present. She's absoloutley lovely and recently I went to my favourite pet store. Japanese Koi company and I held a boa. I fell in love.
Don't get me wrong though I will NEVER get rid of my corn snake I love her too much. But is it a bg leap from caring for...
