  1. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    I want to move my sulcatas outside. I want to build a shed for the night/ shelter 10'x8' and let them wander round the garden during the day. The garden is large, enclosed with a strong concrete fence the tortoises are 22 and 15 years old ad quote large. It's secure from humans and animals. The...

    Hello, I’m new to keeping snakes. I have a (roughly) 4 year old Corn Snake which I got from a rescue centre about 4 months ago. I’ve had no problem with feeding, handling etc, and have had one successful full shed. He’s going into a new shed I think, and I’ve just gone quite close to the...

    hi all, Can I ask for some help? Anyone that knows where to get (buy) some skin shed from an Inland taipan, potentially from a zoo or similar, that for sure is real?

    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...

    We have had a leopard gecko for 2 months - since he was 2 months so he's now 4 months. He has grown quite a bit and now he has gone off his food and gone very pale - we're pretty sure he is going to shed. This is the first time since we got him - is it his first time ever or will he have shed...

    Hi there, I've recently moved in with the misses who doesn't want any pets in the house, we have a garage/shed thing that with minor work would be draft free and secure. However it wouldn't be feasible to run power out to it, therefore anything out there would be unheated and only getting...

    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...

    So I'm a little worried about my Cali King right now. Since his last feed on Saturday I haven't seen him out at all since and he's usually pretty active. I tried looking in his hide and it kind of looked like his eyes had gone milky and his skin looked a little, umm, old? I couldn't really get a...

    Hi! I'm witnessing my new frog yawning a lot and scratching himself. He looks very wet/shiny. I googled and I think he's shedding? It normal for him to look very wet? How long does the shedding process usually take? Will he eat the shed? Is he actually shedding or is something wrong? How do...

    We’ve been having our boiler in the house replaced and I’ve been using a fan heater to keep the bug room warm while there’s no other heating. It’s been dragging on for two weeks now and I’ve been really concerned that the cold and temperature fluctuations were going to cause harm. So I went to...

    I've always known that most snakes will clear up before a molt after eyes blue and body dulls. However I was wondering if anyone here knows the science behind why/how this happens. It would seem the eyes would turn even more cloudy the looser the scale gets from the eye. Same with the body.

    Hi, I just had a few questions because I'm a pretty new snake owner and I'm starting to get worried about my cornsnake, Cheerio. I got him about a month and a half ago, and I think he's about 4-5 months old, but I'm not sure (got him from someone who wasn't a great owner). I've never had...

    Hi folks I have had my CRB Yawn for about two weeks now. I tried to feed him after a week and he refused the meal. On closer inspection it appeared that his eyes were milky and his scales weren't as 'rainbow' as they were at first. For the past day or two his eyes have seemed blacker, if Yawn...

    I found around 4-5 of my snakes scales having a very light brown colouration and one with some of the scale already ebbing away. I have read that it is good to soak the snake in a betadine solution bath (along with ointment) and I do intend to do so as I have already bought the materials. Now...

    I've had my baby KSB since Feb 10th. He had been eating F/T pinkies, from what I had been told every 10 days or so. Feb 16 he shed. I did attempt to feed on the 18h with no success (I figured he was just NOT digging it sooo soon after a shed anyway) but we were leaving for a week vacation and...

    Hey all, basically I bought a "dwarf" male boa a few weeks ago, I was told he is 5 years old (and 5.5ft)and in the old owners diary he shed on the 17th November. He was in blue the last week, his eyes cleared today so I'm guessing he will shed in the next couple of days!? So that's about 3...

    Hi All, I've had my snake Rufus for about a month now, and he's a 2 month old corn snake. He's my first ever snake and so far seems to be doing fine. At the beginning he was a bit timid but seems to be absolutely great with handling now and hardly flinches (this may be because I'm a lot less...

One has shed well, is back to a lovely green and eating again, the other has had a partial shed, tail end and head, but not shed her main...
