    Hello. I don't post often, I lurk a fair bit but I'm getting on with things with my snakes and things are going well. Maybe too well for my oldest snake. She's an April 2012 hatchling, well adult now. She's never refused a feed. I weighed her today and she's 516g. She's not D shaped she's round...

    whats the ideal weight of an asian bullfrog? I can't seem to find it online and I worry my girl might be overweight. Even though it says that they are meant to be big. I worry if I am doing more harm than good by cutting down the number of crickets that she gets.

    OK, so i have had houdini my leopard gecko for around 7 months and he is around 1 year and 2 months old. Maybe im being paranoid here but i think he might be overweight because the leopard geckos in the pet shops and that i see online tend to be skinnier than him. I also think that he is a...

    I need to dig out my scales and weigh this girl. She's about 18" long snout to tail, and she's nice and chunky all over, but her belly looks rather chubby. It kind of hangs and drags on the floor, so I'm thinking she may be a bit overweight on looking at her. Thing is, I've not seen an...

    Hey all, recently I noticed that my crestie has big bulges on her neck, which I haven't seen on pictures of other cresties, and began to wonder if she was just getting fat. Picture of the bulges: She is fully grown at 21cm long, and weighs 50g. Any help would be really appreciated.

    Howdy lizard people. I got a new tokay today and named her porky, bet you can't guess why! Just thought I'd introduce her to you. She's apparently 18 months old and 112g with fat rolls and a double chin! It also looks as if she lost her tail not too long ago. However it's not all bad, she's...

    was just thinking the other day about how breeding any snakes that are too small/don't weigh enough is dangerous, can cause many problems for obvious reasons..does breeding an overweight snake also have risks? just curious

  13. Breeding
    I took ownership of this 5' 5" corn a few months ago from a friend of mine who had taken her off a lady who had been overfeeding her. I am wanting to breed her but have some concerns. As you can see by her hips she's quite portly. My main worry is her becoming egg bound due to this excess...
