    Which species?

    In general, pay attention to day/night temps and day lengths in the areas specific to the species you keep.

    Snake ranch vol1 I don’t even know if it’s in stock at shops any more, I was given it


    I’m still trying to make sense of what the little rodent symbols mean (what 4 orange means compared to 2 orange) hahaha


    I would recommend getting it if you can aswell as mike swans book on keeping and breeding

    Does that mean you feed them the amounts shown than nothing for 3 months than start again when do you introduce the male to her and the months where no food is that when you drop temps at night time

    What about months for cooling down are roughly the same and when do you put both together
