    Hey guys, I have a question that seems to be a common one, save for this circumstance. My corn snake went into blue and out of blue just fine and she normally sheds within a week of going out of blue. This time, I have been searching for her shed for about a month and I haven’t found it. She...

    I have been doing a lot of research on Chinese Water Dragons and I've heard a lot about other reptiles having really smelly waste, like the Bearded Dragon. I'm wondering if anyone who has owned a Chinese Water Dragon has experienced their Dragon having smelly waste or they give off a smell in...

    I've seen people with stunted Alligator pets, and people with dwarf caimans, and I've heard people say that you can't have gator pets, but dwarf caimans are fine. Why is that?

    Making a bioactive enclosure is definitely something I plan on doing sometime soon, but there are a couple of questions I have about it in the long run. First, say you have a healthy reptile living in a bioactive setup that grows old and eventually dies of old age. What then? Can you reuse the...

    Hi, I'm completely new to owning reptiles and up to this point I have only owned rodents and dogs. To make a long story short, a small chameleon at the pet store stole my heart today and I really want to purchase him, but I have never owned a reptile before and I'm terrified I may kill him. I've...

    So I have just taken in a long tailed lizard I got her from a friend who was taking horrendous care of her, she was not getting proper light, wasn't misted, hardly fed and only fed mealworms and used the container as the bowl wood shavings and everything. So I took her in and created a better...

    My six month old snake is calm and curious when I get her out, but when I put her back in her viv she starts rushing around and often tries to climb out the sides. This frantic behaviour is completely to odds with her calm, relaxed behaviour when being handled. Any ideas as to what’s...

    So I have a few questions for you all if you don't mind... So onto the first. I just installed my heating setup for a king snake, ceramic bulb 150W. Have been tweaking the temps and noticed that a lot of heat is transferring through the top. I meant to get a reflector with it but forgot. Do...

    Just wanted an advice and opinion of experienced keepers who have worked with any snakes who eats other snakes. Usually we feed this snakes by the other snakes and the most of them died some time ago. Is it matter for what reason it been died or not? If dead snake died because of stomatitis...

I am not new to animal keeping: I have three leopard geckos; two mantids; numerous tropical...

    Hi guys, I'm currently at college studying a science course and have been given a task to conduct my own research into a subject of my choosing. Of course, I picked a reptile research project! I've decided to do a study on why colour-changing reptiles change colour - what are they responding...

    Hi, I have a 7 month old ball python (we have been told he is male from the breeder, but i do not know if this has been confirmed or not) who is currently 288 grams in weight. I know that there is no definitive exact number weight that he should be, just like how each human has a different...

    So, I am not trying to open a can of worms on this one. I am genuinely interested. Too often in our hobby, people do stuff, because they were told to do so by someone else, and it becomes an absolute rule and our animals will die without doing it, even though people who don't do it, have happy...

    Hello all, I have two ackies I need sexing. One appears to have become a lot more dominant than the other and has grown to almost twice the size despite attempting to powerfeed the smaller of the two more than the larger. They rarely scrap / have any legitimate issues with one another aside...
