    Retic to be Euthanised

    Thanks for the link, I talked to the owner on the phone, and I'm most likely adopting her, as long as the owner can find a way to ship her to me. I told him a few options for shipping, and I'm hoping it works out. He seemed nice on the phone, and has experience with reptiles. He said that he...

    Retic to be Euthanised

    Can you please link me to the thread? I would definitely be interested in adopting it, and willing to treat the mites, and bring it to the vet. I know a good vet in my area. Thanks

    how many algae wafers should i feed my pleco

    I wouldn't feed him any one thing, alone. A variety is better. You can try giving them microwaved/steamed spinach, zucchini, and most other types of vegetation. I used to feed my bristlenose plecostomuses a variety of things, but remove them before they rot.

    Repeat Offender, any ideas?

    Get a latching storage bin. Some brands make 28 quart sizes. They are cheap, light, and escape proof. Even possessed California king snakes can't escape from them.

    Spider ID Please

    There are thousands of species of orb weavers. I was trying to find the specific species of this one. I eventually found out that it was an Araneus Bicentenarius.

    Want to get over my fear!

    Yes, about 3-5 feet. Males stay at the smaller end. You could also use a latching storage bin. They are cheaper, lighter, less likely to break, and easier to clean.

    Sub-section for "What morph am I?"

    I think that is a good idea. It seems like all of the threads in that section are either pictures from breeders, or asking for morph identification.

    There is no chance of a ball python Python Regius eating a cat.

    Check out this little pretty.

    They are some kind of Thamnophis, the first looks like it could be a T. Brachystoma. The second looks like T. Sirtalis.

    Want to get over my fear!

    It was probably a California kingsnake that bit and would not let go. Was it black and white banded? You are not very likely to have a ball python bite, and hold on. The worst problem you will probably have with getting one would be getting it to eat. Sometimes the hatchlings only want live...
