Hey guys, being in Darwin I have a great opportunity to see some rare or not very commonly kept captive reptiles.

Hi all. As I've stated I'm a new owner to a olive python(I know there not a small snake), I know a bit about snakes as a friend of mine has a few of them that I'm always playing with and asking him questions about. But my problem is I have an olive that's around 6 months old and doesn't eat by...

I've had my new 4/5 month old beardie for a week now and yesterday and today he has been off his food and sleeping seemingly 24/7. Sometimes if I disturb him he goes into a sporadic state of looking around really fast (sometimes tripping himself over) and being generally agitated. He was...
It's that time of year again for the 4th annual Gold Coast Reptile Expo .

Hi, I've been browsing here for a while but only joined up yesterday.

Just wondering for those who keep feed records.
Say you've gone to one pet shop/breeder but for whatever reason had to switch to another.
When you make a purchase/keep a feed record... Do you go by the label on the Rat or the weight?
I'm asking this because I've recently done a switch from one...
Evolution Of Aversion: Why Even Children Are Fearful Of Snakes
was browsing around today and found this, it's an article about how the fear of snakes, spiders etc, may have evolved over time. The fear arose as a way for early humans to detect snakes easier.

Hey all, well, i've decided to start constructing my hatchies full enclosure now so it'll be ready by the time he's big enough to move in.
I'm thinking of going for a 1200mm(L)x 1200mm(H)x 900mm(D) enclosure. Is that too big? Would 600mm (D) be fine?
I'm trying to work out heating arrangements...
Was just looking through the current species list for Nsw reptile keepers licences and saw the Olive pythons are on R1 companion, now i dont know about you but i thought that a python that can grow upto 13-foot would have to be altleast on R2 or R3, so that it being on R1 would mean that a...

I posted about my male carpet losing weight, not eating and having runny poos.
Well twice now I've found this in his poops.
He's been away from the girls about three weeks now and one laid a clutch others gravid. So could it be a sperm plug? It didn't seem like one.
Or do you think its a...
