I have an Abyssinian female around 3 years old, her past owner's didn't treat her well. I have had her for a while now and think we have bonded. I would really like to train her to come when I call her name but I don't know how, any tips?:-)

    I live in LA and it's hard for me to find an Abyssinian guinea pig. Any ideas where I can possibly get one?

Hi, I live in Oswego county, NY... my 9 yo son and I just found a painted turtle in our back yard! I believe it is a female because she had dug up a spot in the yard! She sat at the spot for like 30 minutes then pushed the dirt back in and walked away! Just wondering if she did lay eggs how long will it be before we see babies.... We would like to watch for them! I am going to mark the spot so they won't mow there! Any help would be great!

    Should be about ten weeks. For the babies to arrive. If she did lay eggs, are you close to water? They usually lay their eggs near a body of water. Have a best time watching them when they hatch, it's a good experience. I own one eastern painted turtle. His name is Gamera after the Monterrey movie turtle. We found him as a baby. Smaller than a quarter he was. Very excited my son was. Have fun but if you handle them remember to wash your hands. The babies can carry some germs not good for us. They are ok to handle just wash afterwards.. have a camera ready to capture the moment, and have fun.

We've had our Chilean Rose Hair for about a year now. She just had her first molt. When we got her she looked a bit rough, had a bald spot on her abdomen and was very tentative. Now she has a lovely web nest, eats voraciously and since her molt looks more beautiful than ever. She has entertained children at my kid's school and was quite a good sport about it. Very docile animal despite her rather large fangs. Keeping her well-fed has its advantages. I must say, she seems quite content to be left alone and handled sporadically, but shows no aggression when handled. Yes, after her molt she has been more energetic. Her leg span and body size cover the palm of my hand so I would say she is at about three inches in size! I cannot imagine what she will be like at 6 inches. That will be an utterly MASSIVE tarantula! I look forward to seeing it though.

Hi all alex lovers! My query is, I bought a male alex of 9 months as claimed by the shopkeeper .. & since I don't have any idea based on his size... I can't figure out whether the shop owner told me the truth about his age! His length is approximately 14inches. & I was also told that as he grows older he will have a ring around his neck. Did he correctly tell me his age? Also it's been 2 days. He is eating fine.. A bit docile & inactive ( just sits picturesque for the major time) but biting good..looks ok from his outside.. And yet hasn't even chirped any sound (maybe once in these 2 days)! Is it because he is adjusting? Or is it something else? Please Help My Veteran alex lovers! :(

I just lost my little buddy ( Hoss ) three weeks ago. He was very smart and never barked. He didn't care for people much, but he loved other dogs. He was eleven years old. I miss him very very much!

Picasso Triggers are great fish to keep. i have a picasso and a bluethroat trigger in my saltwater reef (yes, i have soft corals, anemones, and polyps with them) and they are doing great! they never bother any of the other fish or corals, and always come to greet you at the front of the tank. they are very herdy, and should mention that i am a kid, and this is the first saltwater tank i set up. they are great, and i would recommend them to anyone who wants a smart, hardy, and peaceful saltwater fish.

    Who says you can't keep triggers together. I have two Picassos, an Undulate, a Clown, a Nigger and an Indian Trigger in my tank. They all live happily together without any issues. At one stage one of my tangs had an issue with my clown trigger but I took the tang out for a week and this resolved the issue.

I recently took in a friends ball python they could no longer take care of, she said he hadn't eaten in 3 months so the day I got him I went to a reptile store. They gave me a feeder mouse but a few days passed and he refused to eat, it's been almost a month he has not shed or eaten. He hardly comes out of his rock so I checked on him, pulled him out and noticed his eyes are cloudy, what is this, what can I do?

    Cloudy eyes normally indicate that the snake is coming into shed. Caution should be taken when handling snakes in shed because it's vision is minimal and this can cause stress and anxiety. In some cases cloudy eyes can be a sign of ill or abnormal health.

Our 13 month old ball python, Sue Ellen, has been very healthy. However, this month she had a hard time shedding (mostly from the head area) and I realize that she needs more humidity. Now I notice that her underbelly is getting concave at times, and edges curl in towards the center. She always eats well and seems otherwise healthy. What does this mean? Is it an indication of something that is wrong? She also had a bowel movement this week that smelled very rank, which has never happened before. She also seems to stare into space a lot more than she used to, instead of going into her hide where it is warm or crawling around. I took some photos and a short video, so perhaps you know if there is someone I could send it to who can tell if this is something wrong.
