    Hi Guys I found a Horsefield Tortoise about 18 months ago and have looked after him ever since.

    Hello! I'm new here, and I just got my snake(California Kingsnake) a few months ago. She is young, and I would like to start weighing her! What sort of scale should I use?

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and I've had a beardie for about six weeks now. He's about 9/10 months old as we were told. I'm concerned that he appears to have lost weight and is maybe too skinny. He is 17 inches in length (1 inch bigger than when I got him) but seems to look quite thin when he...
