    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.

    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

    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...

    Fire-leg and red knee sizes and maturity?

    Hiya guys! I thought I should upload some pictures because of something I've been wondering about size and age ever since I got these two that I thought you might be able to help me figure out. This is mostly for October, my brachypelma boehmei who is a probable male and many of you have already...

    Cool new face for my cousin

    Hi here guys! I thought I'd show you something I'm very happy for my cousin for. She's as crazy about terrariums as I am and today we went to a nearby reptile expo to enjoy the variety and maybe find a new addition or two by some luck. It was really great, there are a whole bunch of things I...

    New lizard!

    Hiya guys! I just thought I'd share some great news! I've been pretty lucky lately in finding specific animals I'm looking for and I just posted about my new giant Asian mantis who I have since named Lee (long story.) Now I got an email a couple days ago that a species of lizard I've been...

    New face in the crowd.

    Hiya guys! It's sure been a while since I've been on the forum and both of my tarantulas as well as the rest of the animals are doing just fine. I'm absolutely stoked about my new addition as I just branched off from arachnids and went deeper into the arthropod category. I went to a reptile expo...

    Can tarantulas eat earthworms?

    I was just curious as to whether or not tarantulas can eat earthworms, more specifically can ALL of them eat them since I know some tropical species like them. I've decided I'm not even going to attempt it until I know for sure it's safe. I always have some nightcrawlers on hand for some of my...

    Change in personality

    So Habanero, the newer of my two tarantulas, a little 3 inch male brachyeplema smithi, seems to have not been like himself lately. Neither of my tarantulas are aggressive but even still he's is/was by far the more gentle of the two and behaved in much the highly praised manner typical of his...

    Anybody kept snakes? I need a question answered

    Hey guys! I've been trying to join snake forums ever since I got my garter snake roughly a month ago and I've been encountering so many registration and technical problems that I might as well have never joined at all.

    Hey Everybody! I'm in the market for about a 3 inch leg span preferably male mexican red knee tarantula (brachypelma smithi) Most of the places online where I would normally order one are either out of stock or selling slings or animals closer to 2 inches at this time. If anybody has one they...

    I'm curious about the history of tarantula keeping

    Hey everybody! I have to say that since raising reptiles, amphibians, arachnids, insects and other terrarium animals is one of my greatest passions that I am naturally curious about how it all started. I mean people, especially kids have been catching and trying to keep small animals pretty much...

This guy just arrived today and is a common garter snake or Thamophis Sirtalis. I've named him "Apophis" after the Egyptian serpent diety and right...
