    Hello! I'm hoping to get a bit of advice from already active frog enthusiasts in the community. In the next couple of months I'll be starting my very first dart frog enclosure. I already have an empty exo terra tank that I'm really looking forward to turning into a fully bio-active jungle...

    So I just recently got a normal male baby ball python from lllreptiles yesterday and have been reading up on some sicknesses that can occur. My ball has some scales on top of his head that are a little discolored almost like he has a stuck shed. Also Iv'e read up on mouth rot and no one has...

    I'm aware a lot of these questions have no doubt been answered a million times before (I've made the best effort to scour the forum and web and found a general agreed answer to most) I still have a couple I'm not sure of. I've done a good few artificial set ups and I've always wanted to do...

    Hey guys, I'm in the process of building a wooden vivarium for a fire skink that I plan to get in the near future. I've got most of it planned out, except for a few small details such as this one: I'm planning on using gloss enamel latex as a finish. Does anyone use this or something like it...
  8. Amphibians
    I've finally finished education, got a job, and my house extension is nearly done. So I can now start rebuilding the varied and awesome collection I had before Uni :2thumb: The species that caught my eye are the Italian Alpine newt (I. a. apuanus) They look simply stunning, especially the males...

    This here is Mork and Mindy. A male and a female Rankin's Dragon which I brought the other week. My questions come from a slight lack of knowledge and first experience in keeping any reptile. These two were sold to me together by the shop because the keeper said that they'd been together all...

    Hi, I don't know if there is any one on here that has Duprasi's but I am looking in to getting some and I am struggling with their care a bit. The two care sheets I have read have been a bit confusing and both say different things. So I have a few questions - Are they ok to keep together? What...

    Hi guys! I just got a little crested gecko yesterday and have a few questions about behaviour to clear up. How long can it take before I can expect to see him be active in front of people? Right now he completely freezes anytime anyone comes into his room (the floorboards are extremely loud, so...

    I have owned alot of lizards in my time, now I have three bearded dragons (soon to build the collection back up hopefully) and as we are all aware, beardies live in hot deserts. So why do I hear breaders say put your dragons eggs on damp vermiculite? Surly in the wild they dont require any...
  13. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    I'm in the process of sorting out vivs for boxies and have a couple of questions. I've done a fair bit of reading up but it's nice to chat with keepers too. What substrate do you use? I wondered about using coir as it retains the moisture which would help with the humidity. What sort of UV...

  15. Newbie Advice
    Hi all! I've recently been looking into getting myself a snake! Out of all snakes, I very much like the pueblan milk snake and I think that will be my choice. They also don't grow very big, which is a big plus for me. So a few newbie questions I must ask, I like to do research and ask some...

  17. Newbie Advice
    Hey guys, I'm a complete novice when it comes to reptiles so please be nice ^^ I've always thought snakes were cute, and I've had a casual interest ('It'd be cool to have a snake') since I was about 15 but I became friends with a couple of people who have snakes and bearded dragons in the last...

    I have a pair of young Brooks Kingsnake whom I wish to breed next year. I have so far kept them apart as the male is still slightly larger than the female, and I don't want any accidents! How do I tell if they are ready to breed? I have had a lot of experience and practice at breeding corn...
