    My latest video. Well, you need to have all the information required about your pets in an Excel spreadsheet (for example when you need to feed them, when they last shed their skin, how many rats remained in the freezer after the last feeding, etc). Hope u like it, have fun!

    I used to use an excel spreadsheet when I was being anal about keeping all sorts of records. If anyone is interested I can have a look when I get home and share it on here (if this forum still allows posting files)

    If you happen to lose one or more of your notebooks or they get destroyed by accident, you'll wish you had it on the computer and backed up on the Cloud. Just a thought hahaha :) :) :)

    There are many apps out there for this, just do a search for freeware/shareware on reptile keeping.

    There's an app called "reptile scan" it is apparently the best app for tracking I have not tried it though, it is expensive at $38.99 but I guess if your a breeder it would be well worth it.

    I have downloaded "Reptile Help & Care Planner". Pretty basic, but you can enter last dates for feed, substrate change, water change and shed.
    Have only just downloaded, so not sure how it will go but looks ok.
    I has a field for "Feed every ____ days" so assume it will give a reminder.

    Is that planner an app? I'm looking for one that is accessible on mobile that's why Excel is not an option for me.
