    Hi all, I was hoping someone could offer advice. My Cali King recently developed some discolouration on his tail. He is ten years old and nothing like this has happened before. I made sure to give his tank a really could clean and disinfect. The discolouration didn't improve so I bought some...

    My juvenile corn snake shed sometime overnight, and today when I pulled him out I noticed a patch of odd-looking scales. They appear kind of waxy and discolored compared to the rest of him. I looked him over and didn't see any other patches on his sides or belly, so I'm assuming it's not scale...

    Hello! I am really new to keeping snakes and my hognose snake has some scale issues recently. I noticed her skin/scale folding when she curves. She didn't have this when she was younger. Some scales even look folded and have lines to them even when she is straightened out. If I try to touch the...

    Hello! I'm new here, and I just got my snake(California Kingsnake) a few months ago. She is young, and I would like to start weighing her! What sort of scale should I use? I was thinking one of those kitchen scales would work because they measure so accurately, but most of them are pretty small...

    Anyone seen this before? Vet isn't concerned. Its hard and about the size of my finger nail (the lump, that is!) It doesn't seem to bother him and he's functioning in all departments.

    I've noticed some different colours on Ludwik's belly, the first half is fine with black and white scales. Towards the back end though, the colours arent as distinctive and he appears milky from certain angles. Last shed was a week ago and it was clean. Is this something to worry about?

    My approximately 20 month old male Chinese water dragon has developed a "missing" scale on the upper lip of his mouth. It is my suspicion (and my vet's) that it is damage from banging his face into a glass cage. It seems to get better at times, and then get worse. Here is a picture. CWD face...

The Merauke has been off her food so today I decided to probe to ensure the sex. Can anyone tell me the scale counts for probing male and female on this species. I have owned...
  15. Planted Vivariums
    I have a problem with scale insects in my planted viv, particularly on my birds nest ferns, they love it! Anyone know any tips or tricks on removing them permanently? I really don't want to keep having to remove them individually as it's so time consuming. The worst leaves I've tended to just...

    Got a lovely little male for sale CB11 and is nice and chunky, sadly at the moment he is being a fussy feeder(which rough scales are famous for) but has eaten a few times for me when I leave the fuzzy in overnight so with some perserverance he would probably start to feed regularly. Other than...
