    So, over the course of the last couple of weeks i've noticed my Beardie's claws have started to curl and he's gradually gotten more lethargic as a result. I keep his nails to what i've been told is an appropriate length by trimming regularly and yet still it's getting worse. Any thoughts?

    Hi everybody. I'm looking for some advice about my corn snake as I'm worried he is sick please. I could do with sharing these images so you know what I mean.

    I've had Sid for about a year now from a friend. He's about 12 years old at the moment with a shell span of about 10inches. Still a juvenile. He's shedding at the moment so I expect him to be moody and as predicted he's refused to eat which is apparently normal for him for a few weeks. I first...
