    Interesting thoughts on vet care / ethics of life

    Came across this, this morning and found it got me thinking some. Thought it might do the same for others, regardless of where you draw your personal line on how far to go with veterinary care for your animals. Maybe unlike many who have come into the hobby in the last decade or two, I...

    gutloading vs dusting vs vitabugs + calciworms, your thoughts?

    Hadn't seen this before. 90 day feeding trial near the end of the video with groups of bearded dragon hatchlings fed dusted insects vs vitabugs + calciworms vs gutloaded only insects. Wasn't aware that vitabugs were sort of designed to be used alongside calciworms (calciworms 2x per week...

    18mth adult ambilobe m or f ?

    Here is a strange one! I bought this girl at the end of 2013 as a small juvenile from a forum member. Sold as a female ambilobe. This chameleon is built like a female- in person s/he is really wide abdominally like a female, never grew to male size, but is largish female sized. No evidence of...

    USFWS restrictions on snakes should worry us all

    At first glance USFWS new restrictions on large snakes don't appear to effect many of us. Most of us (myself included- although I do have a pair of boas that I keep around for educational presentations that came super-close to being restricted this time around along with retics and anacondas) do...

    Yay!- my first thamnobates breeding

    The first of the thamnobates I got earlier this year started breeding a few days ago. I waited 20 years to get some, after reading Bert Langerwerf's write-up about them in the BHS. So these are special for me. Sadly my pics of the event are kind of crap. The camera on my phone is all I had and...

    Subcutaneous worm on eyelid

    I recently acquired 3 freshly imported wild caught ambilobe panther chameleon males. I'm on day 7 of cleaning them up and they have done well overall. Nice steady weight gains. One is so fat and healthy that he looks almost captive bred- except for the subcutaneous worms that I have pulled from...

    Interesting black cricket breeding

    So, late this summer (mid september) I collected a few of the big black crickets that live beneath things in our yard to see if I could breed them the same way as house crickets. The reason being, this local species of cricket is several times the mass of the domestic crickets, and according to...

    Couple of problems with plants

    Hi Guys, Over many years, I keep buying plants for the chams only to see them die off within a couple of years from scale. Anyone know a safe way to rid the plants of this pest without harming the lizards? Or a way to rid them of the pest and then return them to the lizard after a safe while...

    starting an isopod culture

    Hey guys. Fall will soon be here, so I am collecting native field crickets and isopods to start cultures before weather makes them unavailable. When starting with isopods, can I get away with a big jar with crumbled damp paper towels for a substrate until babies appear? Seems like this would...

    What are your best results for roaches' heat tape temperature?

    Hey guys. So, I've had roaches for about a dozen years now, but never had heated shelves until about a month ago to keep them on. I always just relied on my building temperatures and got lots of roaches certain times of year and reduced the population other times. After a month on heat tape...

    What are you guys who use the flexwatt style heat tape under your roach bins doing for a thermostat? I'm building shelves today for this. In the past I just kept the roaches ambient room temp but I want to heat them up and get lots of breeding going this time around. I don't have the...
