    My spur thighed tortoise has recently become very inactive, he’s been out in the garden the past week because we’ve had such hot weather, running around and eating lots. The weather got cooler so he’s had to be in his tortoise table, since then he’s spent every day under the lamp sleeping and...

    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 had my gecko for a while. It's been eating regularly, gaining weight, being active, and everything else a regular gecko does. But suddenly, I come back home and I take it out for a little fresh air. When I usually do this, he loves it and runs around. But when I take him out, he just...

    Hi there I'm a little worried about my Horsfield (who we think is roughly 2 years old). He's kept indoors in an open topped table with a combined heat/UV lamp and plenty of deep substrate. His diet is a mixture of greens - dandelion, kale, basil, etc. His lamp is on a timer and up until about a...

    Sparky, my Hermann, likes to climb and get into whatever he can. However, he keeps trying to climb the base of the side of the cage, especially the corners? Also, at night, he just stops and sleeps in the middle of nowhere, in the open – and he really zonks out! Am I doing something wrong or...

    I'm a little worried about Queenie, my three toed Box Turtle I adopted her in November as her old owner had to rehome her due to his rambunctious kiddies. She's been very inactive, which I put down to the weather and hibernation. She's still sleeping most of the time (I say most as she might...

    For the past week my horsfield has stopped eating and spends 95% buried and asleep. She (I am only guessing as she is just over a year old) lives in a tortoise table on a substrate of topsoil. She has a basking lamp that also emits UV. She does spend quite a bit of time outside when I am at home...

    Hey Lewis (my Horsfield) seems to be sleeping a lot in the day, not ALL day but a bit more than normal, would this be due to the cold weather? It's bloody freezing at the moment, he still sleeps in his pot every night but in the morning he'll get up, eat then dig a little hole under his heat...
