There has been no change to anything apart from about 3 years when I moved and got a new viv. Otherwise feeding routine and has been the same. Has always been on vinyl. Cleaned...

    Hey all, It's great to be back after several years away from the forum. I now have a reptile again which is a hypo translucent leatherback beardie called Al. Male and currently 14 weeks old. Naturally he has been shedding well and also eating well on locust crickets lettuce etc. However over...

    Hi there! I have a question. My brother has a habit of saving toads from the road in front of our house. He feeds them, and then he sets them free again. Now, recently he caught a specimen that seems to be ill. It has a red/dark brownish swollen tongue, moisture underneath its eyes, and it’s...

    A couple of days ago I noticed my corn snake has a bit of swelling about 3 inches from the vent/anus. I've checked today and it looks worse. It's fairly soft and he doesn't seem to be in pain or bothered when I touch it. I was told he was male but in truth I have no idea. He wouldn't feed last...

    Hi, I noticed today that my Plumed Basilisk, Oakie, has a swollen leg. Whilst inspecting it, he doesn't seem to feel pain from it, however, he uses the leg but it is much less dominant than his other. It feels quite firm where it is swollen and it is dramatically different from his other leg...

    I found a small lump of what looked like bloody tissue in my male leopard geckos vivarium so I had a closer look at him and his two hemipenal bulges are very swollen and one side is really red and looks open, I've been watching him for a while now and he won't seem to settle and now and then...

    I'm pretty sure my 20 year old corn is constipated. He's very swollen for about 15cm until his bum and he's been like this for 2/3 weeks. He is also not eating. He hasn't eaten for about a month. I've been bathing him in lukewarm water but he really doesn't like it so I only do it for a few...

    I have a male European green toad (Bufo viridis) that I bought as an adult at the end of 2008. Recently our toads have been more active and I noticed this poor chap was sitting with what looked like a swollen tongue protruding from his mouth. I removed him to a sterile faunarium using damp...

    Hello all, In the last month or so Teicho has developed a gunky left eye, causing him to barely open it at all. We have been back and forth to John Chitty in Andover with various courses of eyedrops and it seems to be getting better slowly. However, while applying the eye drops just now I...

    Hiya I never normally come in this section of the forum, but last weekend I was camping in Gilwell Park in Essex, and something bit me. Initially I decided it was a spider bite, I didn't see the biter but I had a small blood spot on my ring finger, and it was fairly itchy. Today (3 days...

    Hello, My musk turtle (stinkpot) is not right; It hasn't eaten in 2 weeks. Yesterday I noticed it had swollen. (where its limbs meet the shell) and the skin has turned to a light grey colour. Tank temp, 26 Celsius. Water Normal levels. I think its a male, I'd estimate him about 18 months. I...

    So, I found some old threads that seem to be from people having the same issue with corn snakes, but no one ever seems to know why it happens or how serious it is. My 1 and 3/4 year old male corn was fed a medium mouse, which he's been getting for a while now, on Sunday afternoon. After leaving...

    My skink has a swollen eye. I plan on taking him to the vet tomorrow but want your opinions. His tank has a 95 end and 80 end with hides. It was too dry. I removed his bedding in favor of reptile carpet until this passes. I've made a lot of changes to his enclosure. He's about a year old I...

    Hi everyone, I've had these two geckos for a couple of weeks now and in the last day or so, Phoenix (The one in picture held up) has shed her skin (Both 4 months old but was told they were both female, this may not be true!), she had nothing to eat yesterday which I thought was fine and today...

    Hi, in the last six months 2 of my snakes have managed to injury their heads. The injuries seem to pop up over night and I can't for the life of me figure out how they did it, or what could have caused them. The injuries don't seem to put them off their food and touching the injured areas...

    Hi, my RT sometimes gets swollen eyes which he rubs with his feet and goes in and out his shell as though something is irritating them. There is no discharge and they usually only stay swollen for a couple of minutes. The substrate is tortoise life which I keep moist. I know a lot of people...
