Hey guys! Hope you all had a great Xmas and New Year. Unfortunately just before Christmas lost my female Chilean rose hair, 12 years old! Not going to lie I was a little bit upset! We treated her like a pet and she was always there! I know it sounds sad but it was emotional! I love all animals...
It was a while ago when I noticed that my leopard gecko, Cleo, was loosing weight rapidly, as well as lumps forming on her joints. She was diagnosed with gout, arthritis and suspected kidney problems. She went through three days of steroid and calcium injections and we fed her with liquids...
Today my male Australian water dragon died. I have had him nearly 8 years, I'm absolutely gutted, he were my pride and joy... I had him from a youngster when he were the size of my hand to now ( he were nearly 3ft long!) i'm guessing it may be old age, dunno... just really gutted. I don't get...
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...
Just joined the forum. I saw these brilliant animal portraits (that were actually affordable) in N. London and I was wondering is that 'weird' to do?
Would love to have an oil painting of ol' Ghangis!
Ok, so last week when I was on holiday I found out that my 5 year old beardie died from gallstones in his bladder so now I have a 4 foot vivarium with everything required for a beardie. I really liked having a lizard and its a shame I lost him so I have decided I would like to get a new lizard...

I was going through my old pictures and found one of my very first snake
Talk about a flashback
He was an albino Burmese python
His name was Ricardo
He now resides with another reptile friend of mine
Just wondering if anyone else has pictures of there first snake, lizard, or any pet really
Today, Ziggy my Green Iguana, was put to sleep.
After Surgery, amputation, daily care and medication he was still getting worse. He was too good for this world and will be remembered forever as a fighter.
