    My Cali King has developed some discolouration patches on the end of his tail. The scales do not look very healthy :( He is 10, hasn’t had any issues like this before. The viv is regularly cleaned and disinfected etc. Any ideas what this could be, and what I can do to help? Much appreciated!

    Hi. I have a ball python. I fed her maybe 2 weeks ago, but she has not pooped in many more weeks than that. I understand that this is usually normal for ball pythons, but several things have gone wrong. Her enclosure has been rather cold lately, but she hasn't been on the warm side much because...

    Hi all, I haven't been very active as of late (make that the past 3 or 4 years) on the forum. Anyway, after a long break from the hobby I've just picked up a lovely JCP and upon getting her home she appears to have some red marks on her belly. I almost 100% sure it's not scale rot, the scales...

    hey guys, I bought a leopard gecko about 1 1/2 months ago and he still hasn't eaten? I try him every single day but he just won't eat. I noticed that he had like a lump on the top of his mouth and it is black in between his gums. So I done a little research and I think it's mouth rot :( what...

    I was wondering if anyone can help me, i was recently given a supposed 18month male horsfield tortoise - i think that he might be a female though, please see photos.

Her belly has gone bright pink (it's normally salmon tinged anyway but it's really pinky) and her scales look tight. The heat mat is on the bottom of the tank under newspaper and has been for...
