    Be kind please! Hi, I have a Rough Green Snake who's about 10 months old and I've had him since October 2020. He's CP and I got him from a reptile shop- they kept him in a tiny tupperware box in the dark and when feeding they'd hold him, he'd open his mouth in a threatened way and they shove...

    Have had my lovely beardy now for a few weeks, and 'thought' was making progress as handled him daily for the first couple of weeks, and he was 'generally' fairly calm, occasionally a bit skittish, but would sit in your hand and let you stroke his head as he 'dozed'. He's been shedding, and...

    So I've had my CWD for four weeks now. I left him about 3 days to settle in, but then started to get him out. He was very settled and would let me stroke him for a while, and then pick him up and he would happily stay on my shoulder for a while. I also introduced him to everybody in the family...

    Hi, I already have a 3 yr old male beardie and I've just re-homed a 12 month old female beardie (from a friend who IMHO didn't really look after it properly in the first place!) We've had her for just over a week and her traits couldn't be more different to my 3 yr old. • She's very skittish...
