    Hello everyone! Proud owner of a Yellow Ackie. About 4 years old now. Due to unfortunate personal circumstances, I had to leave the UK in early December, and couldn't bring my dear lizard with me. I had to leave him with someone, and didn't get my Monitor back until the beginning of February...

    Hello! I recently bought a green anole (juvenile) and and he has been living with me for about a month. I am concerned that his almost constant state of displaying a brown color is signifying of health or stress problem. When I first got him he was green, and would vary normally between shades...

    I saved a green anole that had gotten inside from my uncle's housecats, she'd been traumatized but I've been using a heating pad and providing water and a humid environment for her so she is now bright green and much more lively, but she is not eating. I went to Petsmart and got her the...

    So we brought Cheetoh home last night (Tangerine Gecko) and just wanted to check, how long would it normally be before they decide to eat.. It was all home and in by 2pm and the guy at the shop said it had been fed this morning (to be fair, when i picked it up, there were several hoppers in the...

    I queried this a long time ago but it's just something I wanted to raise again as I'm met with varying opinions. I've got a vivarium that's W1150mm x D610mm x H500mm and will soon be receiving a corn snake which hatched in June. The breeder suggested that rather than putting him in my vivarium...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and need some reassurance. I got a 3 month old hognose on friday (29/04/17) and I just want to know if he's happy. He burrows a lot and just pokes his little head out of the aspen to look around but sometimes he completely hides himself. I thought it might be...

    Hi, I recently got a 2 year old Herman, my first tortoise :) after months of research and putting together a good setup we took the plunge and picked him up about four days ago. At the moment he is not very active at all and burys down into his substrate for nearly all of the day. I have been...

    I am new to chams (though I feel I've done the proper research). I got my first cham in 3 days ago. He is a 2 month old veiled. When I first took him out, he was fine in my hand. Bright green. He got stressed so I immediately put him in his enclosure. Since then, when I am around, he is...

    Hi, I've been researching crocodile skinks for a few days now, but couldn't find anything out about their stress levels other than they're very shy of their owners at first and play dead if really upset, like a hoggie. Anyone have any ideas on this? I don't want to get one in the distant future...

    Hello :-) I recently got a male bearded dragon from a lady who could no longer keep him due to being pregnant. She says he's 3 years old and has always been friendly, never known to be aggressive. He came with a tank and all of the things that I needed for him...although, on the first night...

    So i was round my friends house today, and he gave his 4 month old royal some oral injections (I'm not quite sure what for). Anyway, the snake seemed to be really stressed during the ordeal and squirmed a lot during the process as if she hated it. Now i was just wondering would she know, that...

    Am now the happy owner of a rather beautiful leo being my first reptile pet. Having moved him yesterday which took a couple of hours in the car and got him setup in his new home I have a few new owner type questions. I placed the mealworms in a small amount of Arkvits but should I also be...

    Stress is something of a very variable topic in itself but the term stress is used alot both by professionals and hobbyists as we see every day on this forum. So when talking about stress, what kind of stress are we talking about? How does stress harm that particular individal an animal. It...

    Hiya all. I'm going to be moving my A. Versicolor juvenile into a new larger enclosure. So i was just wondering the best way to go about this. Can i just put her in the new enclosure, or does she have to go in with her old web? I heard that if i put her in without her Web she could die of...

    Hello, I was wondering how everyone sets up their viv/rubs for breeding, as in the container in which they actually copulate in. I have my two corns together now and it'd be interesting to compare eachother's setups and see what works best, also it'd be helpful to know the least stressful way...

    Hi all, I am lucky to have had my wee Karl since September 2012. He's an amazing beardie, so gentle and fun. Now we're thinking of adopting a crested gecko (not in the same tank obviously), but I'm a bit worried of Karl's reaction. He his very used to his routine and to be the centre of...

    Hello, I've got a six month old little Iberian spur-thighed. She's doing really well, though I haven't hibernate her this year because I only got her a few months ago and the breeder recommended waiting until next winter before hibernating. One thing I'm not sure of- from time to time she does...

    So yesterday i had a day off from work, thinking i would have a nice little break, relax and play some Black Ops and watch some Supernatural - Oh how wrong i was!!! I noticed my pygmy chameleon enclosure was leaking, now firstly you might be thinking why on earth have you got that much water in...

    Hi, I've noticed my beardy has this pattern on her belly. Is this a stress mark or is it something else? It's worth baring in mind that due to the time the viv is warming up from 'Night mode' so about 35C at the moment.
