  1. Spiders and Inverts
    Hello, I am wondering what is the best invert for someone who loves insects and reptiles but still is uncomfortable handing most. I have 2 ghost preying mantis and 4 orchid mantis on the way because mantis don't bother me but other inverts do such as cockroaches etc and especially those...

    Okay, So I picked up my beardie about 5 days ago. I specifically went to a reptile shop, not just a regular pet store as i'd heard so many bad things about them. My beardie is approx 10 weeks old, living in a 4x2x2 foot tank. The chap in the store set up all the lighting for me, so I don't...

    Hello! I recently bought a blue tongue skink from someone who basically ignored her and refused to spend any money on her to make her happy. She's had her for 1 year and never provided her with the stuff she needed. When I visited her home, the skink was in a large tank. The substrate she used...

    I have a young blue iguana and I have noticed at night when it turns to go to sleep, it will ocassionally through different times of the night- get scared and run off before even fully awake. It happens every couple days. Kinda like a puppy who kicks its legs during its sleep, but instead an...

    Hello, I'm having some concerns regarding my new leopard gecko. I got her three weeks ago. I should mention that she is approximately one year old. The first two weeks she was very active despite of her being scared. She would come out every evening and lay in the warm sand. She would eat the...

    :blush::blush::blush: Ok, my gecko just tried to turn around in his log hide and got stuck (clearly I need to invest in new hides) and started doing the squeaky/high-pitched quack noise they make when they feel they're under threat. So I ran over and helped him out, and noticed this like...

    Hey all, So I just had a thought. My Beardie (1yr 2 months old, Male) is terrified of the sky (as a lot of Beardies, so I have read, tend to be). I know this is likely due to watching for predators. So, I have a desert aquarium background in my Viv, which is about 35 - 40% sky (top half). He...

    Hello! Sorry in advance for the wall of text. I was hoping you guys could help me with a problem I'm having. I have had my CWD for 3 years now (he was about a year old when I got him) and he's always been very calm. He's always let me pick him up, carry him around, and pet him with no...

    My wife has always been terrified of snakes, to the point it took me months to convince her to let me get my Dumerils boa. Had him a month now and she has gone from not being able to even go in the same room as a snake to regularly holding my little lad to today feeding him! Surprisingly...

    Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place... I got my leopard gecko, Atlas, 4 days ago and although I love him to bits he has been causing me nothing but stress and worry ever since. I have no experience with reptiles and although I read a lot about how to care for leopard geckos before I...

    I had my Beardie out in my mums room for a run as there's no where for him to hide or hurt himself in there, this is a regular thing so the room is not unfamiliar surroundings to him. I went to get him in as he must have been cooling down, picked him up and he was breathing weirdly as if he was...
