I've bought an Exo Terra large tall enclosure to modify into a display for a green tree python. I've replaced the mesh with a piece of acrylic with a heat panel attached. Some people are iffy on whether this is a suitable enclosure, if it will stay warm enough (it's in a heated room, which is...
Im looking into a more naturalistic looking home for my green tree. Im currently really struggling to find what soil/bedding I should use that wont mess with my animal. Ive been to Bunnings, but it seems to me also every potting mix contains fertilizer?
Hi - I am just wondering if anyone has been asked by NSW Office of Environment (National Parks) to prove from the seller that the python that your are purchasing is from Australia?
This is what the email said:
I refer to your application to import a green python (Morelia viridis) from...

Ever since seeing my first snake, I've been hooked.
I was lucky enough to get my first snake a year ago, and a couple months ago I got a little Woma Python.
And I'm rather pleased to say that I've finally gotten my own R1 reptile license (my mother holds the current license for my two current...
I want to ask you folks from Australia what your all around favorite Aussie python is and why. I would love to own another animal here though I doubt my wife will agree.
As of now I have a select few snakes that have peaked my interest that include an Olive, a Bredli and a Brisbane, locality...
I'm interested in any species of Australian snake that may feed on invertebrates, it is for a small art project! :D
Preferably if it is fairly common within that species... but species that may do so on occasion are fine!
Thanks in advance!
Just wondering - in conversation with Waterrat a couple of weeks ago, he mentioned that NSW was only allowing the import of Aussie GTPs into this state now, and I saw somewhere else a similar condition being applied in departmental correspondence. Does anyone know when this restriction came into...
So with our move fast approaching, I realise Popeye will soon need a new tank. And I must admit the idea of a bioactive/semi bioactive tank seems quite attractive. I'm looking for any plant that is low maintenance and can live in low light levels. So far, dwarf cordylines seem a good...
What is everyone's experiences with birth defects in reptiles? How does it happen? Is it a genetic issue or perhaps something to do with the environment during incubation? If a lizard or snake were born with kinked or curly tails would it effect the reptile's health and life, and would it be...
Hiya everyone :)
Boots (my albino darwin carpet python) wasnt originally mine but the ex owner (my ex) was a **** owner whod throw her around, so i took her. So i dont know much about snakes, so sorry if this is a stupid advice request.
Shes refusing to eat, this is the first time shes ever...
I have started doing some leather work recently, seen some youtube clips with people using exotic leather for inlays and such. It got me thinking about giving it a go myself with some cane toads and possibly my pet snakes when they pass away. Has anyone tanned than own reptile leather?
I don't know about the other states, but here in Victoria you need an advanced license to own one, which I find strange considering they don't appear to be rare or difficult snakes, and with some of the other larger more dangerous reptiles you can own on a basic license it's very unusual to me...
This is a basic question with multiple answers but I would like to ask it as I'm stressing about it...
so im building a 2 enclosures (4x2x2) for some adult Darwins and the only bit I'm stuck on and concerned about how i should go about heating..
The climate were I live it can be anywhere from...

Hey again guys!
I just wanted to give a review of our latest purchase, a thermostat!
As you all probably agree, it's a very, very, valuable and practical thing to own for both your herps safety, and peace of mind, but unfortunately they can be extremely expensive and complex.
We bought this...
Constantly there is threads popping up with people asking whats the best reptile to get first.. In my opinion you should get what you want.. Do your research and be prepared with what the future may hold. If you want a GTP get one or if you want a Perentie get one lol maybe the Perentie comment...
What have you been bitten by?

Geckos/pygopods: Christinus marmoratus, once
So I might be moving to Tumut in future, and if we do move, I'll be able to get a new snake. Which one is my question, I'm looking for something different, and olives do impress and interest me. Do you think they would suit me as a second snake? Size isn't an issue, my family is always...
I agree with @BredliFreak for the Delmas, and I personally would love to see some more Pygopus. The common scaly-foot, especially with the variety of colours it can be, is gorgeous and would make a very interesting animal to own ("thrives on banana in captivity" -Cogger 2014). Also think...
Hi I'm looking at buying my first Green Tree Python next month at the Melbourne reptile expo. I know he will be happy in a small container for his first year but I want to be prepared ahead of time. My questions is do people still house them in melamine enclosures even with the high humidity? Do...
I have just acquired a spotted python hatchling and am keeping him in a small enclosure with some basic furniture until he is a bit bigger.
When I do upgrade him I would like to have him in an enclosure with some live plants. Can anyone here give me any pointers around what plants might...

I'm in the process of getting my display up and running and it has an aquatic theme in it. I've been looking at water filters/pumps and noticed that pond pumps are cheaper and claim to have crystal clear water and aquarium pumps are double the price. My question is do aquarium pumps provide...

Hi there, been a long time since I've posted on these forums but I'm in need of some advice.
I have a 4 year old gammon ranges carpet python who has had a history of health issues. About two years ago he suffered a reasonably serious bacterial infection, which he was able to recover from with...
Found this half an hour ago on my street with "Free to good home" stuck to it.
Instantly saw potential, so claimed it, as a very good lady friend will be getting her own Variegata soon and will need a home for it.
Going to test out some ideas for mounting easily removable vertical branches...

So i am considering getting a green tree python, the only problem is i dont have much room at home so im thinking i can put an enclosure in my office, its boring in here and a good display animal would be awesome.. my only concern is the heat in summer.. i live in Brisbane... and the only...
Diamond-python has very kindly taken time out of his week to design some mock ups of the new APS logos. Needless to say, I am overly impressed and very grateful for the excellent designs he has sent through and I am sure you will be impressed too.
On that note, could you guys have a...
I saw this young female GTP at the Castle Hill Expo in 2008 and it immediately caught my eye. I asked the owner if it's for sale .... it wasn't, so I asked if I could have any of her progeny should he breed from her and the owner agreed. We know how long-term promises often go but this time...
