    Hi, I'm a new snake keeper and I purchased my first snake which was a western hognose who arrived for me on the 14th. I know I have only had her for a short time but since I've had her I haven't seen her poop once for me yet. Is this normal? She is a good eater; her records show she...

    Evening, Some advice please. 2nd weekly check on the tortoise (male, 14 years) during hibernation and noticed he has pooped and almost certainly urinated. I know the urination isn't a good sign so he's been taken out of the fridge and his hibernation ended. A couple of questions on what...

    Hi there, so literally just a few moments ago, my Anery Corn Snake did a massive poo in my arms, which sprayed across the room, all over the floor... I am a new owner to him (since Monday 5th September) and so this is a bit of a concern to me. The poo itself was a bit runny, hence the extreme...

    Hi All, So recently our bearded dragon (Tyrone) has not been able to poo properly (still poos but tiny). Took him to the vet's (on the 5th) and he said that Tyrone has a mild impaction (on X-ray it looked small) but he's seen worse and we got prescribed liquid food and baths daily . We...

    I got my Boa on the 31st of Jan. I fed him that Sunday and every Sunday since. He poo'd on the 3rd and has not poo'd since despite having been fed two large mice since his last defecation. Is this normal behaviour for a boa? he is about 3 and a half feet long and the pet shop I bought him from...

    How often should the substrate be replaced in a tarantula's enclosure? Also what colour is tarantula poo? I was away for a few days and my B.Smithi's water bowl had gone dry, there was a white substrate which kinda reminded me of snake urates, was this tarantula excretion?

    I look after one for my friend while he is away on business. He hasn't pooed yesterday or today but the day before yesterday he did a very large poo. He is fed mostly crickets and locusts as a treat. He had some wax worms yesterday too. He also has access to salad leaves and water.

    Strange question - but what colour should musk turtle poop be? Tonight I took my babies out to do a bit of a water change and clean up and they both pooped in the bowl I put them in. One poop was dark brown as expected, but the other was a beige colour. They both get the same food, (still...

    Hi, I have had my beardie Boris for just over 3 years now (he is 3 and a half). He has always pooed in his viv, but over the last couple of weeks he has been pooing on our carpet. I don't know why he has started doing this, before if he was out running around he would get back in the viv to...

    Hi guys , over the last 3 weeks my corn snake has been pooping nearly everyday and is really active ! The poo looks normal and he is eating fine. I was thinking he was active maybe because of breeding season but that wouldn't explain the pooping ? He started this behaviour after coming out of a...

    Hello, I'm not sure if this has been covered already... Apologies if it has. I own 2 Spur Thigh tortoises - 1 Male and we aren't sure about the other yet. They have their own separate heated enclosures. We believe they are about 2 years old. We feed them a diet of leaves (mainly rocket...

    Hey, My female crestie of around 4 years old has given me a bit of a scare, I had her out tonight and as she sometimes does she needed a poop, off she goes, she seemed to struggle a bit getting it out, and when she wiped her bum a bit of blood came out! The poop was quite firm, could she be...

    Hey everyone. I haven't been here for YEARS, literally. I've back to ask for help. I have 2 Cuban Iguana that like together, they are very friendly and love coming out of the viv. Only thing, 2 seconds after coming out.... Poo, the male is the worst but the female does it too. It wouldn't be...

    Hey! I bought a Young Royal Python a few weeks ago. He's very small (approx 100-150g) and about 7-8 weeks old. I bought him at Kempton on a Sunday, he'd eaten the Friday before and I've fed him fluffs the last 2 Fridays..... No problems eating at all, But he's not been to toilet yet! Should I...

    Ok, here is another of my bizarro questions. On one of the branches of driftwood in the viv I have what appears to be while streaks a couple of inches long by half an inch or less width in total (picture to follow). My question is, will this be frog poop or do I have some weird fungus growing on...
