Hello, we live with our Sulcata here in California. We bought our Sulcata for $l00 when it was 1 week old, now it is 1 year and 2 months old. Its name is Mohammed, we call it "MO". MO is very smart and comes to us when we call his name. He loves to be petted and recognizes his meal of fresh, crisp Romaine. We have not started his calcium, which we intend to sprinkle on his Romaine. We hope to add other desireable greens to his diet soon. He is self-disciplined as he will do his daily 'duty' only during his time in his swimming pool we have provided, which makes it easy to keep his roaming area clean. MO is a very happy and content tortoise! We enjoy him very much!

My girls found our tarantula in our front yard. I do not like spiders, but i think of ours so different. Ours is an adult male I think. He has long legs, black with a coffee colored middle, a dark brown butt, two hooks on his butt, and two small hooks on the front legs. We live in northeast oklahoma. I hope he lives long but i have read that they do not.

I'm so fascinated with this gentle baby. It started as a b-day gift for my son. I call her 'spikey'! She is such a joy, when it's play-time for her you'd see her wanting to be picked up like a baby in a playpen. All she wants is to walk and get a little excercise or to be held for comfort & reassurance. By the way, they do have a good memory and remembers things, too.

I have a male Granite Ball/Royal python. I've owned many reptiles before but I think ball Pythons have to be the best. They are easy to care for as long as you have time to regularly handle them. TIPS: NO HEAT ROCKS NO NEWSPAPER

I have 23 of these in a 75 gallon terrarium. They are so amazing, especially under a black light.

My room mate in college had a leopard gecko and he was awesome. If you ever put them on the ground though, they may run away and hide. That's what his did and it hid under our dresser for hours just eating crickets that had escaped. one of the things that is really cool is how they are nocturnal. Whenever we went to sleep he would make noises trying to eat crikets. One really weird thing was his tail he would shake it before he caught the crickets, he looked like some one shaking a pop bottle to spray some one.

I'm planning on getting a RGS from the pet store i work at. I have a 20 gallon tall tank, 1x24x18 for those of you who don't know the dementions. I will also be getting a 75 or 100 watt basking spot light and a UVA light bulb. I will probably go with either a mulch or terra fibre substrate with vines and plants for climbing. I might get some live plants since i will be getting the UVA light, makes sense.

Most of this info is correct, except they do not hibernate; hatching is not as easy as they say. They go into diapause, a halt in development, and hatching could be 5-8 months. My oldest was 8 months. He's 10 months old now and growing fast. Never toss an egg no matter how long it's incubated unless you're 100% it's bad.
They are more aquatic than was most articles say. My group is kept in two Waterland tubs and often hang out in the water. They need water deep enough to cover their shell and substrate deep enough that they can dig and hide. Fake foliage will help them hide as well.
