    Hey everyone, I am about to be a first time snake owner (Eastern Chain Kingsnake), I've been doing tons of research before actually purchasing the snake, and have set up a bioactive terrarium (courtesy of The Bio Dude). Not long after I finished setting up the bioactive terrarium, I noticed a...

    I've had my 11 month old male African Fat Tail just over 5 weeks now, and since getting him, he's been off. I was told by countless people it was; "Stress, just leave him alone to settle." So leave him alone I did, and within the first days of the second week, he'd come out of his shell big...

    Hello, I am new to the forum and looking for a little advice... We have recently got two hatchling leopard Geckos (Both Males Apollo & Kalaka), we were told by the breeder that we could house them together for a little while as they were babies so when we brought them home we did. They both...

    Hi, i'm making this post for a friend. She has recently bought a royal python for her little girl. She bough the snake from a reptile/pet shop, when she bought him the snake was fairly pale and it's scales were raised a little, but the shop keeper said that the snake was probably just...

    I have a bioactive viv which currently houses my anoles but I'm hoping to move them to another viv and use the one they are currently in for a day gecko of some sort. My question is, how do I make sure the Day Geckos don't pick up any parasites the anoles have? The anoles are WC do probably...

    I got a juvenile water snake about a week and a half ago that I haven't handled too much since then. I just recently noticed little lumps on her body turning up scales. I'm very worried this is blister disease, but I'm not sure how she would have gotten it. There are also small scabs on her so...

    Hi all, 4 days ago, i bought myself a rankins dragon, she is doing well, she is pretty active but she eats almost nothing. About 1 mealworm or cricket/day. I gave him some apple today and she eats that as well, but she just takes 1 bite and then stops eating. I am almost certain she has some...

    Just wondering if the species (Steinernema feltiae) are safe for in my frog terrariums? I have fungus gnats and I have read these are the best way to deal with them. Any thoughts?

    My female bearded dragon sadly passed away on Friday after falling ill only a week before, she had been passing blood in her poo, before that everything was fine and she done the perfect poos. I had never taken my bearded dragons to a vet as I couldn't find a reptile vet. I was delighted when I...

    Hello, I am a new user to the forum (first post) and am also relatively new to snakes. I bought my first snake (corn snake) around 4/5 month ago and have never had any problems or worries. However, when cleaning the viv out yesterday I noticed two or three tiny bugs. They were quite hard to see...

    Ok, I apologise if this has been covered recently but I couldn't find the info I was looking for. So I suspect (possibly) that one of my rankins has an unhealthy parasite load or similar going on (I'll be testing soon enough). If I'm correct I will be removing all substrate and the majority of...

    Hello, i'm getting the Anthelmintic the vet recommended tomorrow. But i'd really like to know what this is. Because he got no idea. Pinworms? This came out after i gave a betadin bath to the (adult) leopard gecko. Looks like it was good since it helped her to expel these bastards. She stopped...

    Anybody got any experience in treating high coccidia counts in bearded dragons? My beardie is undergoing a series of vet trips at the moment for some trouble with his tail that's either caused by a fracture cutting off blood flow or some stuck shed he had for a while a few months ago from when...

    So recently I got a 4 month old juvenile bearded dragon which turned out he was absolutely riddled with worms, coccidia and flagellates. We did out best to treat him but by the time we got him hospitalised (6 days after purchase) he had already had too much damaged to his organs and didn't make...

    Hi Guys, So I made a posts a few days ago about beardy being terrible with eating (see: http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/forums/lizards/1007901-bearded-dragon-not-eating-not.html#post11662161). Two nights ago I realised his breathing was laboured, so one £500-600 vet bill later, we found out...

    Hi guys, Just got back from a weekend away and found these little things in my MBK's bowl and one or two dotted about the viv. I've seen one or two of them before but thought nothing of it, but a lot seem to have accumulated in his bowl over the last few days... Anybody have any ideas what they...

    I take my animals to 2 different herp vets. At one of the vets it takes a min. of 12 hours to perform a fecal float, the other vet can do it in minutes, both check for the same things (so they say). Some of the reptile shows in my area can do a fecal float at the show in about 10 minutes...

    Hi, i have a 5 month old leopard gecko. I have been feeding him primarily small dubia roaches and meal worms. A couple of days ago he threw up some partly digested mealworms and he hadn't been pooing as regular. Although this morning he had done a relatively sizable poo. His temps are warm...
