    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...

    I've had my baby pacman for almost a week now and he's eaten almost everyday but i haven't seen any poop yet. Tonight i gave his sides a gentle squeeze and he felt soft and squishy, not hard like he's impacted. Then i tried to give him a warm bath but he panicked. I feel terrible, I shouldn't...

    Hi all, Got his first trip to the vets booked as we got a free one when we purchased. Noticed these red pin pricks in his urate today and I'm really worried about it. Should I be prepared for bad news or is it something potentially simple like a parasite which we will have caught early? Have...

    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?

    Hi guys, I just bought a young 3 month old beardie from a small reptile store, and got him home today. About 3 hours after we put him in his viv, he started to shake his head from side to side and open his mouth, he did this for about 10 seconds and then began to bob it up and down for another...

As well as this, I'm very new to the reptile world, I got my first leopard gecko on Thursday after falling in love with the leo at college where I study animal...

    Hello, I just recently acquired a green pacman frog (cranwelli). I noticed his poop looks like it has some grayish membrane on it, but most pictures I have seen of poop for these frogs is brownish to black. He is eating normally and going poop regularly. The only picture I can find on the...

    A while back my daughter rehomed a bearded dragon (more like saved as the owner was going to sell the tank and dump the dragon in the woods). She was in a tank with the incorrect set up. The UV light was hanging mid way down the back of the tank. The basking light was sat in the middle. She had...

    Hi guys This morning I checked in on my Leos and one of them had done what appears to be a very large white poop. I was thinking it could possibly be skin as one of them shed last night, but I am unsure and wanted to ask other people who may know more than me. Normally, I haven't noticed poop...

    Hi My Bearded Dragon, Luigi, was spayed about 3 months ago. She has been fine and has healed really well. The only problem is that since the spay she is not pooping regularly. It's been 8 days now which is the longest time (she's been going about every 5 days). Took her to the vet last week and...

    My snake tried to poop on my dress, but I was next to a table which had a box of tissues on it so I let him poop on that. Anyway, I just had to throw away half a box of tissues. He hasn't tried to poop on me before, also he'd pooped since he was last feed. I don't know why he tried to make me...

    Hey guys, I have a six month old common boa which I haven't had very long and have only fed him twice but he is yet to poop after 2 weeks and I'm starting to get worried. I have tried bathing him twice now but I think the issue might be hydration as i have not even seen him drink yet. Help!

    Ok, I made an account, just so I could ask this question. I've seen a few posts, but I thought I'd post one specific to my Stormy. I've had him a week and he hasn't pooped once in that time. Here are the specifics I've seen people usually ask about. He's a three year old Leopard Gecko. He was...
