    Hi everyone, I understand that Royal pythons tend to have feeding problems, so when I got my female royal seven weeks ago at the beginning of November (she was about a month at that time), I thought I will let her settle in for some time before I start stressing out about her not wanting to...

    My normal Royal Python is now almost 1 year old and for the past 2 months his tongue started getting black. Before it was all nice and pink. Then tips of the tongue started getting black and now almost half of it is black (or dark colour, could be purple, very hard to see exactly). Is this...

    Hi all, I bought this girl a few months back privately while she was in blue. She wasn't being kept at the correct humidity ( way to dry in with a ball python) and took 10days to shed. At this point I noticed her eyes looked odd, like they were very dialated. It's not her pupils tho, if you...

    One of my hatchlings started to shed yesterday morning. It's been 24 hours and its still only got the shed off its head. It's keeps rubbing against the side of its tub, water and the hide but doesn't seem to be getting any further with it. Do I need to do anything to help it?

    So I have returned from uni while someone was looking after the dragons, and I came back to one of my 2 juvenile mountain horned dragons looking a bit weird. The base of the spine is raised, as is shown in the pictures, compared to the other. both of them together (bottom one is the dragon in...

    Hi there, I have a Royal Python, he's about 3/4 years old and I've had him just over a year. Everything I got came with him, the wooden vivarium, the heater, the thermostats, the thermometers and hydrometers, heat guard etc. Recently I've been having trouble with the heating with the...

    Hi guys, I'm relatively new or even very new to fish my usual haunt is phibs ,reps, and inverts. But my girlfriend had a small aquarium which she's brought to the new house and I've recently upgraded it to a larger tank. I've planted it up pretty heavily, and first noticed the odd snail. Which I...

  14. Spiders and Inverts
    About a month ago or so I got some milliepedes, my rainbow ones doing fine, but the giant African millipede has tiny dots covering the majority of it for the last week or so, along with tiny mite like bugs now which if I can get the picture up, they don't show on there. What can I do to get rid...

    Hi Guys, My snake has been ill with an abscess in her tail, she has had 2 weeks oral baytril and is now on a different antibiotic injection every 3 days. She hasn't been eating well and I am assuming she is feeling pretty run down but now she has developed problems with her ventral scales as...

    Hello everybody :) I guess the title is pretty self explanatory - one of my corn snakes has had a strange lump for a couple of weeks now, which seems to have gotten larger since his last feed. Since it's grown I've temporarily postponed his feeding but as far as I can see it hasn't gotten...

    So i got my first red tail boa the other day. She's maybe a little bit over a year old. Shes been burrowing herself completely underneath the substrate and doesnt seem to come out. My setup for now until she gets bigger is the zilla critter cage 40g you can get at petco. Two bags of the forest...

    I know, I know, everyone has gone over the temperature issue billions of times already. Basically, I can't get to grips with the temps in our bearded dragons vivarium. I know what they are meant to be, but getting them is a whole different thing. If you can't be bothered reading this essay...

    Hello all, first post so bare with me! I have some concerns about my corns health and so far am struggling to diagnose it. His names Joey, he's roughly 4.5ft I'd say and about 14 years old.
