    Snake problems?

    That is a good point. I did make a similar mistake once before with a fuzzy mouse when my garter snake, who gets one as a monthly treat, was being picky. I learned the hard way. Eeew.

    Snake problems?

    Thanks Enn49! That's good to know. Semi brumation was what I was starting to expect anyway and I'm relieved to hear they can go a lot longer than I thought without food and otherwise she's a picture of health. I'll go ahead and put her cave on the warm side and then maybe either give her a week...

    Snake problems?

    Hey guys! So I have a quick question for fellow snake keepers and I'm sure it's a very common problem. Cinder, my still new gray banded kingsnake who I got in May 2019 hasn't eaten in a few weeks despite my best efforts. The only information I could find about how long kingsnakes can go without...

    Anyone else with snakes? Curious about handling between feedings.

    Thanks Enn49! In that case waiting two days before handling like I've been doing definitely seems appropriate! I usually feed the kingsnake on Fridays but I actually have been mixing it up a little and trying Saturday and Sunday on occasion. Also that is a great idea for the garter snake! I'm...

    Anyone else with snakes? Curious about handling between feedings.

    What's up guys? I'm asking here because I'm already a member and I haven't found the right snake in general forum yet. Most are mostly species specific or don't have a lot of active members. There's something I've been wondering that maybe some of you fellow snake keepers can answer. I have two...

    Tarantula bites

    I figured as much. He's really more of a hair kicker when he's in a bad mood. He seems happier when I'm around as of late though so I'll take that as a good sign. I love your murinus too! Beautiful!

    Tarantula bites

    I'd expect nothing less of the orange bitey thing! Yeouch that looked like it stung! Better run that under some cold water quick!

    Tarantula bites

    I've certainly heard they can leave you with a painful bite. Those gigantic birdeater fangs could do a lot of damage for sure!

    Tarantula bites

    Hey guys! You could say this a morbid curiosity but I also just want to be prepared just in case and know what to expect. I have two tarantulas right now, a mexican fire-leg I've had for around 4 years and a mexican red knee who I've had for about 3 years and I haven't been bitten once or really...

    Some awesome new additions!

    Two updates guys! The first one is that unfortunately Yuma the common collared lizard passed away suddenly on the 5th. He had a random accident on the 5th where I found that for some inexplicable reason that had never been an issue before he tried to swallow a big clump of substrate and I guess...

    Some awesome new additions!

    That's a good idea! I plan to get one first opportunity! I especially like the fact they can handle multiple tanks.

    Some awesome new additions!

    I've heard great things about the mistking system! I plan to get one and then get another chameleon! I had a monsoon system. The peace of junk got the floor wet and only did its' job for a couple days before it paid no attention to the timer and sprayed nonstop and then later wouldn't turn on at...

    Some awesome new additions!

    Thanks ilovebrachys! She is incredibly gentle and doesn't mind me picking her up at all! She's also getting much more confident! She still hides most of the time but now you'll see her maybe 3/10 times you look in the tank! For the first week or so she would only come out briefly around 10:00 at...
