    Oak silkmoth as feeders? (Antheraea pernyi)

    I bought some oak silkmoth cocoons today, in hope of hatching out some pretty moths. Are oak silkworms/moths suitable as feeders for chameleons? I know they mostly feed on oak and that oak is high in tannins so I'm not sure. I'd be interested to know if they can feed on other plants & if that...

    Ferdy Skunk is home!

    Thought I'd start a fresh thread :) We brought Ferdy home on Monday. As predicted, being hand-reared has made him very tame & he's settled very quickly. At first he would cry when I put him to bed but now he doesn't mind. He is litter trained but has had a couple of accidents, wooden...

    getting a skunk!

    I'm hoping to get a skunk. I've chosen a kit from a litter but sadly, mum ran out of milk so they are being hand-reared. It's touch & go for them, but I'm really routing for the fella!

    Riker- oustalets

    This is Riker, my oustalet's boy. When I was told he would grow big, I didn't appreciate how big! He's still not full grown at 400g. He eats about 20 feeders per day & becomes most upset if I try him on every other day feeds. He's a gentle giant- very shy, doesn't like handling & just about...

    Pickles the hedgehog- grumpy but so cute!

    I took my hedgehog's exercise wheel out to clean & didn't shut the cage properly. I left the wheel drip-drying in the bathroom.

    Happy birthday Neelix x

    I don't know his exact hatch-date but I know it was around this time last year. I got him in may. Neelix has taught me almost everything I know about chameleons.
