    So I have been doing a lot of research on Chinese Water Dragons and I just found out that they hibernate! What can I do to prepare for when they hibernate and what should I do when they are in Hibernation? And do they also hibernate in humid places? -Thanks!

    I know some people recommend brumation for corn snakes, I have my corn over a year now and never tried it yet, mainly due to the fact I have no where to place him with ideal brumation temps. Currently my corn snakes cool side temps are between 18-20C, I heat with a ceramic heater and have a...

    Winter will be coming in NYC in about 2 months. Here, the temperature can go below freeing. My apartment has great ventilation- we have plenty of windows. However, even when the windows are closed closed, this doesn't really let us trap too much heat. We don't really have a consistent central...

    This will be my first winter with my snakes, and I am worried about the winter and this house gets always very very cold. I have two babies (BRB and BCI) that I am not worried about them too much, as they are very well insulated and I have already a plan to keep the temps ok if the outside temp...

    I've been monitoring the temperatures in my crestie setup and have noticed the heatmat I have will probably wont be suitable for winter. I'm moving back into student housing come September and I can predict the house wont retain its heat very well either. Whats the most energy efficient means...

    Hope someone can shed some light on this for me. Cleaning my boa out the other day and I found what can be described as a pale, snotty substance. It was only a small amount and have found none since. Also this is the first winter he has gone off his food and will just sit under the heat in a big...

    Hi all, This is the first winter I've owned a royal python, and I just had a few queries. Her feeding has been fantastic since I got her in March (as a baby), only rarely missing a feed because of a shed. However, over the past month her feeding had become very sporadic, only eating once a...

    Okay, so I live in a non-central heated flat with horrid old, expensive storage heaters as my main source of heat. There are 2 electric radiators hanging around but they are pretty pathetic at doing anything (bless 'em they try). My question is - whilst I will have an UTH for the hot side of...

    Hello im very very new to the reptile world, and am very interested in keeping a Crested gecko. originally I wanted a leo but the live feed has put me off (and the missus) so I was told by the local reptile store that cresties are a good alternative and easier to maintain. However I have...

    This winter is set to be the longest, coldest, hardest winter we've had for a long time. Usually over the winter my heat mats go back in for all of mine, but now that mine are going into a stack, and Rex is in his big viv I've decided to go for ceramics. They are in the only room of the house...

    Hello In October I'm on holiday for 2 weeks so my nan and grandad are having Lewis (my horsfield) while I'm away. I've only had him 2 months so not gone through a winter with him yet, but we were concerned on how cold it would be in October. For a tortoise that's not hibernating through...

    Probably nothing, but I thought I'd pop a post up all the same in case someone was able to help. I have a three year lrian Jaya who's been off her food since November and am wondering if it is normal for females to go off their food during during this time of year. From what I've read...
