    That's cool do you like your turtle? My dad found one while he was digging for weeds and it's soooo sweet and cute what do you feed your turtle:D- age 13
  • Jeannie - 2014-08-20
    I live in northern california and just picked up a Florida box turtle someone found walking in the road. I had a 3 toe box turtle my friend found in the road. I had it for about 6 months and decided to get it a friend. First I had a 6 foot long planter made into a fancy pen. The second day in its new home it disappeared. I put up signs called the shelter but never found it. I'm glad to have another turtle but would love to get my "peanut" back. Does anyone know if it is legal to have a Florida box turtle in california?

I was just given an adult pink toe. Read up on it but I'm not seeing anywhere if its poisonous? I am assuming not? Anyways I have a heated aquarium its all set up with dirt and her nest up in the corner. My questions are: How do I go about handling it for the 1st time? I'm kinda scared but sooo intrigued! How can you tell how old she is?

    Handle her. She will be fine. I was scared at first, but I now have to refrain from kissing her! Bond with her, learn from her, don't be afraid of her... Does your family dog or cat have HUGE teeth? Why is it that you are not afraid of them? Experience is the answer. Hold her and learn.
  • Simon- grant - 2014-08-11
    My gf got me a t for my 18, birthday and I was just wondering should the heat pad be buried in the sand in the tank or just places under the tank
  • Jeremy - 2014-08-19
    To answer your question kathy, ALL spiders have venom including tarantulas. For most species including yours it doesn't amount to much more than a bee sting... unless you develop an alergic reaction. As for handling, Id be a hypocrite to tell you not to. Pink toes are usually not quick to aggression ( although this varies on the individual) the species is VERY "flighty"... very quick. If you're hesitant on handling it in any way, Id suggest you start with a slower species. If the first time you go to handle your tarantula and it takes off up your arm and into your hair, there may be panic, and you may end up injuring or losing your tarantula. .. or both. Be careful. Start small. Have help from someone that has experience. As for the tank warmer.... definitely goes on the ouside of the tank.... be careful with tank warmers... tarantulas typically do well between 72-82 degrees. With this in mind HEAT kills them quicker than COOL. Monitor this carefully.
  • Jeremy Mische - 2014-08-19
    ...on another note simon-grant, i notice youre using "sand" as substrate. .. You should really REALLY consider switching to something more appropriate like coconut husk, sterile soil, vermiculite... the sand isn't going to adequately regulate humidity, and combined with your heat pad you stand a good chance of frying your tarantula. ..

hi ive just got a corn snake snow from my son for my birthday I fed it on sunday when can I handle it cos I tried today Tuesday is that too soon as she keeps trying to bite me (not that it would hurt me ) but would like to handle it any advice

  • Clarice Brough - 2013-06-05
    NIce picture:) Well, the rule of thumb is to not handle them for 48 to 72 hours after feeding, depending on the size of the prey. Basically if you can still see a lump, then wait longer. Biting is from one of two things, either there is food around or the snake is feeling threatened. I would guess the second one. It's in a brand new environment, is young (babies tend to bite more than adults), and doesn't really know you yet. So be patient and gentle and you should be fine.
  • Clarice Brough - 2013-06-06
    These are even better pictures to see your beautiful snow corn snake. And yeah, it sounds like he's still a bit nervous. But they adapt pretty quickly, as you are finding out:)
  • Tony Osty Wilds - 2013-06-06
    Thanxs for that I got to handle it last night it tryed to bite me but I waited until she tunred around . Once in my hand it was ok , it was squeezing my fingers quit hard is this normal or was it it felt threatened
  • Callum Ryan - 2014-08-19
    The squeezing is normal they are just trying to hold on. Think about it like you're a tree for them and that your fingers and other body parts and like branches so they just want to feel safe. :)

So I just got a chilean rose tarantula a while back. Love her very much! She is still kinda small. She recently has stopped eating completely. I left a cricket in her pin to make sure of this and she hasn't touched it in about 4 to 5 days now. She is also webbing A LOT! I don't really know what's wrong with her. She is usually active and gentle but has recently only tried climbing out, stays in corners, and is very moody. Can anyone tell me what might be wrong.

If I was you I would start from tadpole stage because then he will be adapted to your enclosure .i have several different species I raised from tadpole in my seventy five gallon tank and I have live plant life cedar water we'll its and ecosystem all in itself but I don't even need a top cuz that's were they started out they call it home and won't leave I have a five inch in diameter PVC tube going out Side with a special UVB light sent out side so bugs just fly right in every night it's beautiful if I could post a pic I would so start fresh and that would be the best bet for the frog no stress cuz it don't know better

My male bearded dragon will not eat and is rolling over and over. He has one nasal plugged and I cannot open it seems to be having spasms. Not walking. I bathe him anyway to help him go to the bathroom and keep him hydrated. His labs are normal, does not have parasites. The vet wants to do extras and scans. I cannot afford this. Do you have any idea what could be wrong. What is there natural I can do to help him.

    It sounds like your beardie is well cared for. It it may be some sort of physical problem so I can understand why your vet wants to do more extensive testing. I have seen similar problems with frogs with spinal or nervous system disorders. Hope you can find a solution.
  • Bill Lassiter - 2014-08-18
    Hi Barbara, I am sorry to hear about your beardie. It sounds like bad MBD which comes from lack of calcium and/or lack of proper UVB rays. You should replace your UVA/UVB lights every 6 months with linear type bulb called Zoomed ReptiSun 10.0 and give him calcium three times a week. Right now I would bring him to the vet for calcium shots. 0

I've been keeping spiders for about 13 years now, and I've had my goliath for just over a year. She about 3 years old with a leg span of about 8 inches, so another few years and she would have reached full sized. I strongly agree with gary, beginners should not start with a goliath. As impressive as they may be they can be a handful, as they are very sensitive to cage conditions, ie humidity and temperature, and they one of the most active spiders I've come across.
Although they can be agressive they're not the most agressive I've kept. If I open my goliath's cage she usually crawls into the corner and I'm able to move around the tank freely. The most agreesive I've come across is the thailand black, it's short haired and short tempered! I've almost been bitten quite a few times while trying to sort out a thailands tank. They will bite anything, leaves, pens containers, even had it killing locust just because they were in it's way, not to feed!

    Re my bird eating spider

    I have my day time temp at 82F

    and my night time temp at 70F.

    Is this right? I have a wooden viv 2 foot by 2 foot
    with a 50W infrared bulb by Exo Terra.

    And I keep it relatively humid not excessive she just huddles in the corner of the tank and sleeps in the day am I doing things right?

    Tarantulas will should 'hairs' from their abdomen when they are stressed, it is a defense mechanism and signals that they are uncomfortable.
  • TC Brown - 2014-08-16
    I've a had my pink toe for a little while now. I've noticed that when she is handled a lot she starts to leave a few web strands. I think she does it instinctually. Like as a life line. I also noticed that when she just around one or two people she more chill. But when passed around. (You know how kids get), her hairs seem to stiffen and instead of shooting the hairs she lays down and rubs her abdomen on you. It doesnt hurt but it itches until you move her back to her cage and brush off the hairs. She very fun and agile like described she jumped a few times from my shirt to hand. Neat creature. I say handle it til she's tired and then put her away. Its a cool pet and isn't likely to bite. I let her chill on my shirt everyday.
