I’m actually really happy more and more people are discovering how awesome BRBs are. I’ve had Hydra for less than 6 months and still say he’s the best snake purchase I’ve ever made.

Join the rainbow army. Do it. Join us.

So true, I concur.

Beards must be dreaming about food bc he’s opening and closing his mouth like he’s chewing. And even drooled on my face.

Hm.. Is he wheezing at all? If he’s drooling that kind of points to a respiratory infection..

Just something to watch for.

It is a common misconception that snakes will constrict you if you hold them. What they are actually doing is ensuring you cannot escape when they poop in your hand

As many of you know, I recently rescued a pair of bearded dragons. They have been kept together for I assume a while, but I’ve heard from many sources that keeping bearded dragons together is not a good thing to do.

The owner said that they ‘love being with each other’, but I see Hubert, the…

Geez, full grown beardies together is really not okay :/ It’s like the same concept of keeping them on sand; it’s all good until something physically happens. Whether they attack each other and need antibiotics, surgery and possibly lose limbs, or he continuously breeds her.. It’s just not a good situation :/

So yes! Separation is the best option you can take. Remember these are solitary animals in the wild.

Can a large/full grown corn snake (~5 ft. Not 100% sure about weight right now) eat a small rat?

Setting one up for my problem feeder (Monty the BP) but I don’t want to waste an entire rat if he doesn’t eat it. :/

The…

Yeah, for sure! That’s definitely another viable guideline floating around in the community. I just prefer the percentages because I’m more of a math person, everyone has their own cup of tea.

Lol I know the feeling. My old ball python would attempt to eat a rabbit of she could. Any more questions feel free to inbox me! I love talking snakes.

hey herpetology community, my male ball python has become more aggressive in the recent weeks, i’ve been told because of the local temperature drop (which has been severe and has dropped his regular temp in his tank by 5 degrees to 77ish during the day to 70 at night) that he may be getting ready…

Just make sure you have the humidity at 55-60%, and an under tank heater keeping a hot spot of about 87-90 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature drop could very well be the culprit.

We had to go to the vet because SOMEBODY has been refusing to eat for quite some time… she seems to be doing better with some food in her tummy. Hopefully I’ll be able to get her to eat on her own soon so we won’t have to take another trip to the vet.

Hey there, it could be that stuck shed making the little guy stress and not eat! I would suggest making sure his humidity is around 55-60% and give him a few soaks to get it off (: Also if he isn’t eating, you want to limit handling to a bare minimum until he does.

Wow, not cool dude. Reptiles have very primitive lungs and are prone to respiratory infections as it is, without things like this. Please do not put your reptiles at risk for a photo, nor by smoking in the same vicinity as them.
