    So I just got a leopard gecko under a week ago, and he is my first ever pet. I got him from my sister's friend, who has had him for 10-15 years and according to my sister has not taken the best or most attentive care. I did not have a lot of notice before getting him and didn't have very much...

    Just looking for some advice really. I have a female leopard gecko who is about 9 months old, and I stupidly tried to introduce another female gecko into her terrarium about 6 days ago. It went terribly as she just attacked the new gecko straight away and I had to pull the new one out of there...

    My male leopard gecko (Max) has been constipated for just over a week, so every day I've given him a shallow warm 'bath' to help. Yesterday we had a breakthrough and Max was able to pass a small amount of excrement but something else came out and I'm not entirely sure what it was. The only way...
  7. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    I took my tortoise to the vets because he wasn't very active. It wasn't a respiratory infection because he was still eating. Well only when we fed him off out hand anyway. He just wasn't moving much and stopped going to his food and just being lazy like he had no go in him. So I took him to...

    We got our baby bearded dragon 2 weeks ago and he was settling in well, he didnt mind us stroking him or picking him up to give him a bath and has been eating fine. the past few days he has turned himself black, really spotty belly and if hiding all the time, he is also really jumpy when we go...

    Some of you have read my posts recently about my boys and the troubles I've been having, well in some respects things have gone from bad to worse. My 7 year old, Inca, is now lovely, happy and settled, and great to ride. My 3 year old is now the problem. Had Diego since he was about 4-5 months...

    I have a bearded dragon, Arnie and he's been behaving really weirdly these past few weeks. He spends every day running around his vivarium with a black neck. I've checked his food, temperature, water and everything is fine. I've tried to handle him at least once a day but he seems really...

    Hi, i'm new to this forum and would just like an opinion from other beardie keepers. Yesterday i collected a pair of 2 year old beardies, they had to travel 2.5hrs in the car - they were in seperate travel boxes. They have been put back into their original viv, and the setup and temperature are...

    Hi, My female leopard gecko is refusing ALL food and in my opinion is getting thinner. She isn't a big eater anyway but since she has met my male gecko she has stopped eating and I think she is stressed out because he bit her twice. There are no marks on her and they are NOT kept together. I...

    Hi, A couple of weeks ago my leopard gecko had an operation to remove a tumour from her abdomen (see previous post). She was doing great until today when she shed her skin and has pulled out the top two of her stitches. She has lost a fair amount of blood and was still picking at the wound. I...

    My little G.pulcheripes keeps climbing s/he is in a ferrero rocher pot and was fine before just used to sit in his/her little film cartridge, feeds fine in there too but does'nt want to eat now either, is this pre-moult behaviour or is s/he stressed?

    Hi, Is my Uro unhappy? I installed a thermosocket+Reflector in his viv around the Ceramic heater last Sunday (because I wanted to stop the ceiling wood getting so hot). This has resulted obviously in the heat being more localized, but the thermoms indicate temps are good: ambient cool 29C(84F)...

    I just got a leopard gecko today, and pretty much as soon as I got it out of its tub it started to climb the mesh of the enclosure. I'm using newspaper as a substrate - could it be to do with that? I don't want to move the little guy because he's probably a bit stressed. Should I just leave him?

    Hi, I have recently upgraded my bearded dragon's viv, it is bigger (just over 3ft) and all glass pretty much whereas my old one was about 2ft and was typically beech panels with sliding glass doors at the front. Seeing as this new vivarium was bigger, I have put it on my large window sill...

    Hi. I have a baby beardie and she's 6 and a half inches long including her tail. However my baby beardie always has a grey patterned belly even when she's been sitting in her basking spot for a while. Her beautiful orange colour also goes dull on her upperside. I was wondering if all baby...

    I've had my two desert iguanas now for three months and I'm a little puzzled about their activeness. Or in-activeness to be correct. They get up about 7.30 in the morning and after noon they're usually back in the hiding. Is this normal? When they are awake, they seem to be ok. They bask and...

    My Juvie P.irminia (about 4.5inches) is constantly pacing the tank, climbing the sides, hanging upside down on the lid etc. I'm worried that she is stressed about something and can't put my finger on it. Temp at the moment is 26.7, humidity is at 75%, 2" inches of dryish coco fibre substrate in...
