    Looking to rehome my ivory boy in the hopes that he can be happier and healthier. He hatched August 2019 and came to me in June 2020 already only 200g. Now I’ve had my other royals for for a couple of years now but I have faced new challenges with him and he’s just not happy. He has been on...

    I picked up a corn snake this weekend from someone who couldn't keep her anymore, and aside from being underweight and small for her age (she is CB 2018 clutch) she also appears to have some faeces stuck to her vent. At first I thought nothing of it but after closer inspection this morning the...

    I'm going to be taking in a BP that's almost a year old, and she's never been able to eat on her own. Her previous owner had been assist feeding her live rat pinkies her entire life. While I do have experience with snakes, I could also use some advice if anyone has it. She's 112 grams(!) and...

    I have recently been given two bearded dragons that are underweight but are very willing to eat. The problem is one of them eats and then regurgitates his food pretty much right after, is this because he hasn't had food for a while and has ate too much or something else? They both seem pretty...

    Hello, my name is Sarah, and this is my new corn snake Popcorn. She's about three years old, and I took her because my friend could no longer care for her. I'm unclear about her previous set up, but I know she got 2 large mice every 10 days. All I know is that my friend said Popcorn was too much...

    I picked up my leopard gecko a week and a half ago, and I've just weighed her today and she is 30g. When we first got her she wouldn't eat at all, now she eats but can be a bit clumsy with her food, she will strike for crickets and miss and give up, even when she is offered live food on...

    Hi there, A few years ago my last bearded dragon died, I had him since he was a baby and he was always a chunky healthy cheeky chap. I was very fond of him. So when I heard someone in my neighborhood (I didn't personally know them but these things get passed along the grapevine) was looking to...

    I recently rescued an adult bullsnake that was abandoned in someone's apartment for who knows how long. I got him in January, and he was incredibly underweight. His spine stuck out 1/4", and you could literally see all his ribs down his body. However, he eats like a champ, and I started feeding...

    Hi guys. I was hoping to get some advice if possible. Four weeks ago I bought an adult male Corn snake, a Carolina, very pretty boy. He's about 4.5 ft long, so I'm guessing he's at least 4-5 years old. He went straight into blue before he was due a feed and didn't eat for three weeks all told...

    I have a young bearded dragon, had him since about August, but he wasn't eating at the pet shop he was at, so is quite small for his age. I think he is almost a year old, but could be older. Are there any suggestions on how to fatten him up? Any insects that are especially good for young...

    Hi everyone new here so thanks in advance for any help. My sister in law has given me her daughters 2 bearded dragons to look after while they are on holiday. I have had many exotic animals before but never bearded dragons. The male bearded dragon is bullying the female and basically keeping...

    I recently took in an unwanted chameleon who was bought from a pet shop in Leeds to make profit off but the guy couldn't sell her due to her being a bit deformed. She has MBD so he was planning on freezing her to feed his piraña my sister refused to let him and thats how i've ended up with her...

    Hi everyone, I've not posted for a long time but today the sadest little beardy in the most terrible condition was passed my way and I want to ask you all for your advice. First the back story... He has lived in the science department of an SEN school for (we guess) his whole life. A recent...

    So I posted one week ago as I derped and tried to feed him when I got him as the original owner said so... :bash::bash: Since then I've left him completely alone with only minimal handling and water changes, no feed. In one check of him, I found mites with which I have bought Callington mite...

    Someone on Tumblr posted this image of their royal, with the comment 'My poor snakey baby is all cloudy and wrinkley, gonna have his first shed' I could easily be wrong, but those don't look like wrinkles, and if they are, they seem far TOO wrinkley for just a snake in shed. They almost look...

    Sebastian is a Jan '11 hatch - making him around 22 months old, and i was told by a friend + local pet shop that he is too small for his age and too underweight. I tried to measure him again just now and he is around 28 inches (Hard to straighten him out!). I weigh him on digital kitchen...
