    when to start feeding again?

    Hey everyone, I was wondering when brumation 'ends' and I start feeding my pythons again? It's their first year of brumation and i've been reading a couple different times for when it should end. Some say start of September, others say mid, or even October. It's pretty cold here in Melbourne...

    Cage Pacing

    hey everyone, it's my first time brumating my reptiles, and it's been a learning curve so far. I've dropped the heat, in time not temperature, and taken away about 2 hours of lighting for everyone. But I don't know if they are actually 'brumating' or not, I say this because both my Diamond...

    Should I Brumate?

As opposed to the 24/7 heat pad he had in his last. After I moved him in he fasted for 2 months, and refused to bask, only coming...

    Jungle Not Eating In New Enclosure

    hey everyone, I'm having an issue with my jungle not having any interest in food, by that I mean despite doing all my normal tricks to get him to eat, he isn't having any of it. He is sometimes out and about around 9pm or so, an hour or two after the lighting/heating goes off, so I took that...

    Today was a rare sunny day, but it was still rather chilly. Somehow the Netted Dragons knew this and this morning after almost two months of brumating they were waiting on their basking rock for me to turn the lights on.

    Jungle not striking?

    My Jungle has always been kind of a finicky eater, but lately he has been refusing to strike at the rat. He will sometimes nip it if I annoy him enough with it but he won't grab a hold of it. As of now I'll put it in a coil and he'll constrict, later he will eat it when the room is quiet. Any...
