    Hi, I have been keeping stickies for over a year now with six types at the moment. I spray them twice a day. I was wondering if putting a tub of vermiculite would benefit them more as I see some people do. Thanks.

    I was just wondering if you could use vermiculite as a substrate for Tree frogs? I use it for my tarantulas, and I thought that as it holds moisture, deters fungus + mould, and is used for many other animals in similar environments that it might be okay to use? I'm not entirely sure which is why...

    I have filled a 20ml syringe with the vermiculite i had in my incubator. I pushed down the syringe from 20ml mark to the 6ml mark. In the process five small droplets of water came out. Im not a weak person, so I'm sure i got all of the water out. Any advice would be appreciated :D Thanks :)

    Hi guys. As I've posted on here before, I'm sure my female corn is gravid and she has been amazingly active since she last shed 2 weeks ago. If she is gravid, she's about due to lay. The concern I have now is that she has hardly moved for the last 24 hours. She's in the vermiculite box and...
