  1. Reptile & Amphibian Discussion
    Keeping reptiles isn't horribly expensive in most cases (though it can be, sometimes), but considering how many of us are tightening our belts in this economy, why pay more for 'name brand' reptile supplies, when you can get the same things (or better) for much less money? Here's a list of...

  8. Degu Discussion
    I was searching for some chin. Dust bath and found that there are SO many kinds! I was wondering what your opinion was on dust baths. Also, what do you put your dust bath in?
