    Hi everyone, I have an Arizona mountain kingsnake, her name is Peep and she is my first snake. She isn't probed so not 100% on sex but recently I have noticed the skin just above her eyes becoming almost crusty and flakey looking? (pic inserted below where this is visible) Upon further...

    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!

    Hello, I am fairly new to this forum and I am seeking an answer to my question. I have bought this corn snake, Tusk, about a week ago and I notice that on the body of him there are red marks as if a specific scale was coming off. I would attach pictures but I do not know how to. I fed him and...

    Hi there, newbie here I took in a corn snake from less than ideal conditions last week (a week ago today infact). He had no controlled humidity with a tiny 6" square heatmat (in a 4ft viv), no substrate and no thermostat, the guy said he had never had a complete shed (he had bred him, used to...

    Hey, I was just cleaning out my corn snakes home and saying hi to him when i noticed a small odd patch on his scales. One patch looks like a stuck scale shed (excuse me possibly sounding dumb but I don't know how else to describe it...) along with a couple of discoloured looking scales around...

    Wel, a couple of weeks ago my 2 and 1/2 year old corn snake got stuck a hole in the top of his favourite coconut hide. It was very stressful for him (and me and my mum) during this process. In the end we got him out by snipping away his coconut, much to his dismay (he's had that coconut ever...

    I was looking for some advice on the behaviour of the snakes scales. Do they change position or pattern? If so what would be a likely time span for this? Below is an example, is this the same snake? (False water cobra) would this happen over four months? Any thoughts or insight would be...

    Hello! I am a fairly new reptile owner, as I rescued/adopted a reticulated python several months ago. Overall, he has been happy and healthy, and I have done my best to keep his environment clean, humid and heated. However, a few nights ago I noticed the scales on the frontal area of his head...

    Afternoon everyone, I've noticed that my corn (about 2 years old) has a few dry scales on him. It looks like a few bits of his skin are dry and have lifted slightly. I think it might be set up and humidity related. Here's the setup: The heat mat covers 1/3 of the viv on the RHS, thermostat...

    Hi all, i found this on Bane whilst doing my checks on him this morning, it doesnt seem to be painful as he lets me look at it. Ive wiped it down with wet tissue to get any mud off (as he has peat in his viviarium) however i am slightly worried it could be scale rot? He has been really active...

    Sorry for my complete ignorance. Really new to snake keeping and want to ensure I give the best possible care I can. My new snake has some white scales on her body. They appear in around the same place across the length of her body. Is this something I should be concerned about or is this just...

    My bearded dragon has recently shed and it looks like he has a damaged/missing scale? No one messed about with him whilst he was shedding so it couldn't be that. I do have other pets (cats and dogs) but whenever he is out of his enclosure I have been with him so the other pets wouldn't have a...
  14. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi, i have a horsefield tortoise who is about a year old. Ive noticed the past few days hes been losing scales on his back legs, is this normal? He doesnt seem injured, is still active and eating and drinking. Any help is appreciated

    Hi Guys, My snake has been ill with an abscess in her tail, she has had 2 weeks oral baytril and is now on a different antibiotic injection every 3 days. She hasn't been eating well and I am assuming she is feeling pretty run down but now she has developed problems with her ventral scales as...

    I own an female adult corn who seems to have a sort of dry, flaky type of scale on her head near her 'neck'. I keep her in a large VivExotic vivarium, the temperature is 80F and I use aspen shavings for the substrate. She seems to be very healthy, taking a large mouse once a week. The flaky...

    Hi! I'm in the mood to share with you some snaps of my Albino Bairds Ratsnake whom I have appropriately named "Diablo". I hope you like the pictures! Despite its evil nature I fell in love with the beautiful orange sand colouration at first sight and took it home the very same day. I believe...

    I bought this boa a couple of years back and i've always wondered about his belly marks, i have another two boas and his are completely different from the two, he has a orange spotty belly with most orange patches, i know i will not be able to know for sure without knowing what the parents were...

    He finished shedding a couple of days ago and today I realised he doesn't have any scales on the inside of his right ankle! His left ankle has scales. Is he ok? Should I go see the vet? The missing scales might not have been due to the shedding (i have no idea). He seems active enough though...

    Hi all, had a bit of a weird morning so far; I weigh may snakes weekly, partly out of interest and partly to keep an eye out. In any case, when I weighed the corn I noted that he had apparently lost a substantial amount of weight; going from 239g to 191g! I was of course very concerned because I...
