  1. Snakes
    I have a 44 gallon viv and I'm not sure what I'd like to put in it, I've only considered putting a snake in it now. By no means is the viv. ready to be inhabited, so I have plenty of time to research what ever species may be suggested. I'm looking for a smaller breed, as I would rather not have...

  3. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    Recently this has come up and trying to be polite I didn't want to take over someone else's thread to discuss it. Funny thing is I never thought this would come up on a forum of mice\rat lovers but hey stranger things have happened! First off let me say I am not in ANY way against snakes or...

  6. Turtles & Tortoises
    my friend has good intentions, but just doesn't seem to think things through.

She's been keeping the little guy in a bowl (a large food bowl) with a rock in the center so...

  8. Lizards
    I have had this iguana for just about a week. I woke up the other morning, went to his tank, and found that he has a terrible-looking lump on his lower back. It looks twisted and he cannot seem to move one leg very well. I have taken very good care of him so far. I don't know if he fell off...
  9. Turtles & Tortoises
    Does anyone know anything about a alligator snapping turtle? I have looked at several websites and all of them have said it was safe to keep red ear sliders and them together. I also called the local zoo and they said as long as there wasnt a huge size difference it would be fine. I just...

    After water changes Big Red is always especially active so I took a few pictures. They are really bad but oh well. Moving his stuff back to where it was, lol: Checking to make sure nothing else was moved: I have to get him a bigger shell soon as he's molted a few times and is probably...

    Last night I got a new hamster. I guess I missed having a little rodent :). He's a male (or at least that's what I was told...I'll be checking him myself when he's used to me) and I ended up getting him from a petstore. I usually rescue so I feel kinda bad but there aren't any hamsters around...
