    To Ship or Not to Ship

    In July I will be moving from MA to TX. I have two leopard geckos and one mali uromastyx that will be moving with me. I'm trying to decide whether or not I should ship them or bring them in the car. My reservations about the car is that it's going to be at least 3 days. However, I'll have...

    My mom wants me to "entertain the thought of getting rid of one set of lizards". She doesn't like having "all the tanks". There's 2 fish tanks, which I may combine plus one comes to school with me, my gecko tank, and my uro tank. That's it. And the herps usually leave for a whole semester at...

    I've got a ten gallon tank that I recently refurnished. Natural colored stones, one large piece of driftwood, and large orange rock. Currently it's housing a male betta, 2 pygmy corydoras, a honey gourami, and a dwarf gourami. The betta displayed some territorial behavior at first, flaring...

It was a crazy trip and they didn't get into an incubator till midnight (11 hours after being laid) and the incubator I have is a ghetto thing I built in my dorm room, but so far...

    You Couldn't Wait 2 weeks

    Today, 2 weeks before I finish school and go get my critters, my female uro decides it's a great time to start laying eggs. She's done this before with zero complications, all the eggs were infertile, but I feel bad for freaking out the girl watching them and that I can't be there to make sure...

    Critters and College

    I am having the hardest time figuring out what to do with my critters while I'm at school. The first girl who watched them got pregnant. Tried a guy from a local petstore, that didn't end well. The critters were miserable, wouldn't eat, and their lights kept getting moved around. Then I had...

    Uromastyx X-Rays

    Here's a couple X-rays of my female mali uromastyx from a while back. All the eggs were infertile, but guess how many she had in her when this was taken. She had laid 2 the day before the x-rays were taken.

    Anyone know someone/somewhere that boards reptiles near Exeter, NH. I had mine with someone who's knowledgable and who I thought would do a good job. I visited today and my leos are severely underweight and probably dehydrated. I need to get them out of there asap. They can come for a few...

    Eastern Red Spotted Newts!

    The past few years I haven't seen too many of the little guys. This year is much better. I've seen quite a few this past month or so, I saw 5 today alone.

    Need a Temporary Home

    RIP Ferdinand

    Today Ferdinand the betta was lost to dropsy. I feel awful. Maybe he would have lived if I had caught it earlier, if I had been able to get him the medication. He was my little buddy and I let him down.

    I've been keeping my uros's temps up and feeding them normally to avoid brumation. When I cam back from the mall today there were 4 infertile eggs in the tank. Two buried, one half buried, and the other in the food bowl. I know they were infertile but I still feel bad, especially cause one...

    Tail loss

    How common is tail loss in cresties? I feel like I've seen a few without tails, much more than leos.

    How are they as a first snake? I'm looking for something small and I was thinking a sand boa or a Cali King. I've handled both and liked them.

    Small snake?

    Ok, I like snakes but as I had pet rats the idea of them as feeders bothers me a bit. Are there any snakes that are fine with just mice?
