• Is dried soaked cat food bad for my tortoises?

    Best answer: It entirely depends on what species you own. Redfoots, for example, are omnivores and require some animal protein in their diet. It should not be fed to the herbivorous species like Russians, Greeks, Sulcatas or Leopards on a regular basis but a small amount once a year will not cause any damage. It is the... show more

It is the sustained use that can lead to kidney damage and other problems.

    Even the herbivorous species will consume animal protein that they occasionally encounter in the wild

    So this isn't much of a concern its more of a confused. My LEOPARD gecko (note: leopard gecko, not crestie) can climb up any surface! I have been able to see him climb up glass walls of him vivarium (which if you haven't noticed, Is smooth and doesn't have anywhere for a leopard gecko to grip their claws on) and I'm very confused because this isn't normal for a leopard gecko. I mean I'm not concerned or anything I'm very impressed. I just have never heard of a leopard gecko able to do this before. I'm very proud to have him. Has anyone here ever heard of a leopard gecko able to do this? or is this the first time? either way, I'm very impressed by his ability to climb

  • Does your pet have any bizarre fears/discomforts with anything?

    My snake, Mr. Gacy, he is lovely, is very fond of coiling up on my stomach, but won't do it if I have a belt on. He will not go near a belt, on a human or just like laying around anywhere. I don't know why. He just won't. He's very displeased by their existence.

  • Do I need a cover/lid on my bearded dragon enclosure?

    Best answer: 1. They can jump, if they want to.
    2. Cats, being cats. . .

  • Can you feed a snake raw chicken?

    Best answer: Definitely not. Ball pythons are known to be finicky eaters. They will only eat rodents. Most ball pythons will eat frozen/thawed mice though. You should look for a well established ball python that has proven to eat frozen mice readily. Baby ball pythons will often refuse to eat frozen and only want to eat live... show more
    Best answer: Definitely not. Ball pythons are known to be finicky eaters. They will only eat rodents. Most ball pythons will eat frozen/thawed mice though. You should look for a well established ball python that has proven to eat frozen mice readily. Baby ball pythons will often refuse to eat frozen and only want to eat live mice. So a juvenile or adult would be better than a hatchling. Just be aware that sometimes even a ball python that has been eating frozen thawed mice for a while may suddenly decide to be a picky eater. In that case you will have to try several different techniques to get it to eat which can include splitting the head open on a f/t mouse, feeding freshly killed mice, feeding live mice, etc. so you have to be fairly comfortable with it. The only snakes that have been known to eat raw meat like that are big adult snakes like retics and burms. And even those snakes should still have whole prey to get full nutrition.

  • Would you keep an 8ft python as a pet?

    Best answer: I wouldn't keep one in the first place, but I'm glad they didn't have the snake killed, it was only doing what pythons do. Not sure about the man's mum still keeping it though.

    I found this lizard on one of the leaves and have cared for it since. I left a tiny piece of a pear and kiwi and left some water drops on the leaves. The lizard has done better since. Its color changes from green to brown sometimes, but it's usually green. I haven't touched it because I don't want to stress it. I feel bad 'cause I don't know if I should keep it or give it to a pet store willing to take it. Does anyone know the species of lizard in the photo? Thank you

    I know some dogs and cats can tell if their owner is sad by trying to comfort them. But can Turtles? I have a red eared slider and recently I ve been having major stress. Today I broke down and cried. My turtle was in their tank looking in my direction and suddenly started aggressively swimming towards me, flapping and flailing in the water with their head sticking high above the surface and being perfectly afloat. I ve never seen them move their arms that fast. They definitely weren t drowning or anything. I stopped crying for a while. When I started crying again, my turtle started doing it again. I wasn t crying loudly either. So is my turtle trying to come to me or get my attention so it can have a extra snack?
