    Hi guys, I've just become the owner of an amelanistic corn snake.

    Hi, I'm looking to get an Iguana soon and one of the things I seem to have the most trouble with at the moment is their diet. I want to make absolutely sure I'm not harming him in any way with what I am offering him/her. So far, the consensus seems to be, vegetables only. Absolutely no live...

    My boy Loki is getting bigger and more restless, and his tank is getting pretty small, so I hope to make him a home out of a RUB (or equivalent) soon. I'm thinking a 30 gallon bin, he's a royal and he's just over 2ft now and about 8 months old. He's quite active and definitely seems bored with...
