  1. Lizards
    Hello! I have recently started to want a lizard and I'm strongly considering a Beardie! I previously had 2 Chinese water dragon/ baby iguanas that I was aware of ( Got them from petsmart which I now know is a huge NO!) Anyway, at the time I was 12 and I had no clue what I was doing even though I...
  2. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi guys! I'm considering getting a couple mice. I've had bearded dragons, dogs, cats, and hammies so I have a few questions about general mouse care. The first thing, my residence does not have very good insulation and no heat at the moment except a space heater. Temps are pretty nippy and I'm...
  3. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Hi! I recently got a fancy mouse, not from a breeder but from petsmart, a few months ago.. I have fed him oxbow since I got him, which based off all of my research is a very hi quality food. In the last couple days he has gotten so fat.. I really don't know why. Anything that you think...

    My husband and I WILL BE THE PROUD OWNER OF 3 (2 MALE, 1 FEMALE) DUMBO RATS! I'm so excited for the babies! They are 3 1/2 weeks old and are still tiny! What do you guys think: Is $20 a fair price for a baby dumbo that has already been vet checked and come with a note from the vet?

  8. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    So.... Yesterday (Tues) I bought two male Winter White Russian dwarf hamsters. They came from PetSmart and are brothers from the same litter. I'm unsure of their age, though. I have them in a 10 gallon fish tank instead of a cage (I just preferred this idea) so they have a lot of space. They...

  12. Guinea Pig Discussion
    I brought home two adult guinea pigs from a local Petco about a week ago. I've been feeding them regularly and spending a lot of time near their cage talking to them, so they had been warming up to me. However, when I fed them this morning, they were acting very skittish towards me, similar to...
