  2. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    OK, so I have a pair of yellow sliders which I've had for some 5-6 years now and keep in a Vision 260 tank (260 litres) with an Eheim II external pump. When they were smaller I had a pair of turtle docks for them to sun themselves on, UV light (10 hours a day on a timer) and all seemed well...

    My albino cornsnake is about two years old now and normally sheds, eats and poops regularly but it has been months since he's last shed and I'm starting to get a little worried about him. He is still active but has his quiet moments but during this last month he has started to go really pale and...
  8. Lizards
    Today I had one of my two Leopard Geckos, Amber at the vets today. This was because both of her eyes had been cloudy and kept shut for around a dozen days since we got back from holiday. At the appointment, it was clear that the cloudy parts were shed skin etc. However, on one of the eyes, all...
  9. Snakes
    Hi all I don't know if anyone's done this but I was wondering what royal/ball python morphs have breeding problems. I nearly bought a female desert unknowingly that they don't ever lay fertile eggs or die when bred, which got me thinking, what other morphs have problems?

    Hi, sorry we are new users so forgive us if a little ropey! Calling all expert help for our smallest AFT. Basically 2 weeks ago we brought 2 AFTs one supposedly a male (although we're not 100% sure) & a female. The people we adopted them off didn't really seem as if they knew what they were...
  14. Lizard Care Sheets
    My gecko has a lump near the base of one of her back legs. I had noticed a sore a couple weeks ago and I researched until I came across someone saying it could've been from the Repti Carpet I had, so I switched the substrate to the coco fiber and completely cleaned the tank. Just today I saw...

    I've had him for 2 months already, he is 3 months old and about 25 cm long. Up to 2 days ago, feeding time was like christmas for him and he crawled up my arm to grab crickets (dusted). He ate anywhere between 6 and 20 a day depending on their size. I haven't really fed him anything else because...

    Hi all, I've got a bit of a health concern with my Honduran milk snake [unsexed, but think possibly female]. There are a few pieces, not sure if they're connected: 1) The first thing we noticed was a small lump just past half way down the body. It feels like there may be something sharp...

    My corn snake shed about 5 days ago, and I noticed that there was about an inch left on her tail. Two days later I put her in a moist tub (loo roll) and most of it came off but there was still about half an inch left. Earlier today I put her in a moist tub again for the whole day and she still...
