    He is a very fat gecko, not obese, but he's chunky enough to be healthy; his tail is fat too. And he loves being handled, pet, let explore, and stuff like that. He's a very healthy lizard on the outside, but he's VERY inactive when he's in his tank (P.S. He is not actually a he but it's hard not...

    Hi guys, I am relatively new to this message board but i needed to post about this. I've had my red eyed tree frogs (3) for around 2 years now with no problems at all but recently one of my frogs has been acting extremely weird. He is often awake for 3 hours extra than my other frogs before...

    Hello, I wrote a very long and detailed post in here a few days ago and it has disappeared. I really need some advice about the frequency of the dosage of Zolcal-D for my Savannah who has started suffering with rear end/pelvic weakness due to MBD. I don't want to give him a toxic dose but...

    Hi all, So my partner and I got a bearded dragon approximately 6 months ago, and when we got him we did notice a small black bump on his long toe, but didn't think much of it at the time. Fast forward to the present, whilst the black spot hasn't grown much if any - the rest of his leg and...

    Hi Guys, I purchased a baby Crested Gecko from my local reptile pet shop (i know please don't hate me) around a month and a half ago. I cannot tell the gender of it yet but as default i always refer to it as a male. Basically, for the first few weeks of me owning him it was a dream. He would...

    I got a razorback a few weeks ago and added him to my (partly filled) aquarium where two common musk turtles seemed to thrive. The shell of the razorback was (and is) about an inch long and the common musk turtles are about twice the size. They all got along fine and the razorback could step on...

    What types of small animals don't get sick often? I was considering getting rats or ferrets (after more research) but I was told they get sick a lot.

    Hello! I'm new here so I apologise if I'm posting this in the wrong place. My bearded dradon Erroll has unfortunately been off his food for the last few weeks. Apart from this he has been pretty much asymptomatic apart from an occasional head tremor. I took him to the vet two weeks ago and...

    I apologize in advance for the long read. My dragon has a soft lump on the inside of his mouth way near the back of his jaw. I have included a picture. The black thing is dried blood that I could remove with a q-tip,but I thought it better not to be in his mouth any more than I have to. The...

    Hi, I have 2 musk turtles with one sick one. He has a red (half head sized) bubble on his right side of the neck. The bubble goes away by breathing in (the whole neck goes inward just as normal), when he is getting air, but the bubble comes back after half a minute under water. It's the third...

    Hi! I have had my little water dragon, Mira, for about 6 weeks now. I feel like he is a boy but it is way too early to tell for sure. His humidity is anywhere from 75-90 during the day, and 65-80 during the night time. The cooler end of the terrarium is 76 or so, with a warm end of 81 and a...

    This is the third website I have tried, PLEASE somebody help me. He jumped out of his tank last week. I had treated him for fungus on his feet. I put him back in the tank. A couple days later, I see this instead of the scar he had there. Help. Please. Caudata and 4chan don't give a shit...

    My one year old female chameleon was doing great until last Thursday, it's as if she got very sick overnight. We just adopted her from a coworker in January. She hasn't eaten any crickets since last week and won't drink water. Her eyes are sunken in, she's very weak and won't grip the branches...

    Hi all, My Cali King is showing some real weird signs i haven't seen him do before. He is constantly moving around his vivarium and hasn't eaten in month and a half. I've checked him and i can see these really weird red marks. Anyone have any idea what they are and if its connected to him not...

    I recently purchased two green anoles. Both seemed to be in healthy condition but then one developed one had a noticeable bump on its back. It is very dark and doesn’t change color when my anole changes color. I was hoping with regular care it would go away but it has only gotten worse and the...

The move took place 4 months ago and since then, she is constantly under her 'shelf' (in the warm side of the tank), unless I physically take her out and put...
