I had a gorgeous female ball python name Autumn. She was only 6 months old and died of internal parasites but she was an AMAZING snake... everyone loved her and she was the best pet ive ever had... The signs that i didnt notice before she died were being somewhat limp... and weak seeming, her rectum wouldnt close all the way, and i could feel things moving inside her so i took her to the emergency vet clinic and it was too late... she died that night... but she never stopped feeding, she ate untill the day before she died... she was too weak to strike at it... she just let me drop it into her mouth.. i thought she was just becoming use to eating frozen thawed.... it was sooo sad. If u notice unusual things happening with your snake take it to the doctor right away, thats my advice... even if they arent known symptoms of a illness...

I have a baby gecko and he is very fun to watch. Expecially when it`s time for him to eat. I like his little tail shake. These geckos are awesome and I recommend people get one if you are searching for a lizard.

I have recently purchased a leopard gecko, and she is very friendly. Those looking for a hardy reptile pet that doesn't cost too much or isn't too hard to care for, you should definitely get one of these. I've only had mine about a month and she already perches on my should without a care. I think a leopard gecko is the perfect animal for those who want a unique pet that they can show off to their friends, which is exactly what I do. :)

If your leopard Tortoise is eating well and not having regular bowel movements you need to be soaking them. You should soak your Leopard Tortoise twice a week for good digestion and growth. A shallow area which is luke warm with water, do not overfill the soaking area. Water should be a little over the bottom of the tortoises carapace. The water stimulates their system and rejuvenates them. You should have a healthy bowell movement within a half an hour. Growth of your Tortoise and appetite will also increase. Make sure to dry Tortoise off after soaking it and place in basking area. If you want to really perk up your Tortoise, apply vitaman E on the entire Tortoise and rub in with your fingers. This keeps their shells beautiful and healthy. It also relieves any discomforts they are having from shedding of their skin.

Hello! My boyfriend and I have had a bearded dragon, Spike, for about 6 months now. He is such a wonderful pet! Even though they aren't fluffy like a dog or a cat, Spike gives me kisses and loves attention. Anyways, bearded dragons are a great pet, and fairly rare too. I've had too many conversations that have the other person asking "Whats a bearded dragon look like?"

Hi my name is Anthony. I had a rose hair tarantula and it was so cool. I would always scare my mom and friends with it. That was funny. i was sad when I got rid of it. I had to get rid of it because my grades went down but I plan on getting another one.

i own a male ball python that is around 12 months old. so far it has proved to be a fantastic pet which is very docile and does not seem to mind being handled. it has however bitten me twice but these were not serious or very painful!

I have kept a red-knee for obout a year. I bought her when she was about the size of the top of a coke can, now she is about the size of a coaster. She has shed atleast five times, once i walked in on her in the process, i left the room to not disturb her and came back later after she was finished. Another time i walked in on her and out of the corner of my eye noticed her move strangly, this is because she had just flipped back over from molting!! Her entire legs were pink like crab meat and as soft as noodles!! her legs werent straight at all, she looked like a land octopus. Anyway, keeping her has been exactly like the care sheet said it would be, i guess you could say she has proved every part of it correct. I keep her in a 20 gallon. She has a unique anxious temperment.
