    My leopard gecko of three years has recently stopped eating shortly after shedding; she normally does perfectly fine with shedding but we had recently moved her into our living room so she wasn’t isolated in our bedroom. I had noticed she was having trouble shedding around her head so I had...

    I have a 8 month old male Veiled/Yemen chameleon who’s had a sudden turn. Over the past couple of days, he has been closing his eyes. I have washed them with saline and then thought about a vitamin A deficiency, which would have made sense as he was shedding during his last vitamin day so...

    Hello! I’ve had a red eyed tree frog for about a month and a half and his name is Cujo. I need some pretty urgent help regarding some weird behaviors. Cujo was always a really dark green color compared to other frogs I’ve seen and he’s never called (I don’t know how to sex the frogs, I just know...

    So I have just taken in a long tailed lizard I got her from a friend who was taking horrendous care of her, she was not getting proper light, wasn't misted, hardly fed and only fed mealworms and used the container as the bowl wood shavings and everything. So I took her in and created a better...

    My turtle started shedding scutes. I did some research as soon as I got home and saw it. It says if the scutes are whole pieces, and not broken, then it is normal shedding. It also says if the scutes are translucent, its healthy. But it also says you SHOULDN'T see any red or exposed bone or...

    Hi, last month i was picking up some mice for one of my snakes at petsmart, and they had a ball python on sale. I know it was a bad idea, giving big corps money and all, but his cage didnt even have a hide and his humidity was very low and he looked very agitated. I had to get him out and to a...

    Hello, Recently I put a plant into my aquarium where just a single gecko has been living. The gecko has been mounting the plant as if it were a female. The problem is the plant has a couple sharp points on it and it seems to have punctured his Tiny Gecko's Wang hole which sent a small...

    As of Wednesday, I'd noticed something wrong with my bearded dragon--it seemed as though he was suffering from cloacal prolapse. His situation has worsened over the past few days and I fear that he is in critical condition. Today I tried treating his problem by giving him a sugar bath, cleaning...

    He's being extremely restless and moving around as if he's trying to shed. He hasn't shed for a while, but he normally sheds very regularly. He's about 6 years old. He is definitely not shedding, but the skin on some of his scales is hanging off, mostly all in a straight line down his body, but...
