    Need to re-home my leopard

    What I'm thinking of doing is putting him in a cleaned out bill millers cup (that was used for sides) with some shredded newspaper. Holes poked in the lid. Then place that inside the fitted styrofoam box. Fill any gaps with shredded newspaper. Then place a piece of cardboard over it with a 40...

    Does anyone know how much shipping typically is overnight? I'm seeing $100. That can't be right, is it?

    Nearly yearling leopard enclosure

    Hi all. So I have an issue on my hands. I hope I don't get attacked for this one. I have a sweet baby leopard. He (nearly sure it's a he) will be a year in July. This past year, I have had a great enclosure set up for him. He's been in a clear container with a lid and a hole cut into it with...

    TBMI

    Hey all. Haven't been around here in awhile. App looks great. Hope all is well. Phoenix is doing well. Growing steadily. He's at about 9-10cm. Or 3&1/2-4in. I'm trying to find the article for the TBMI someone sent me a few months (maybe closer to a year by now) ago. I have searched a few threads...

    Hey all. Haven't updated y'all in a while about Phoenix. I've had him now for about 4 months now. He's doubled his size so far. I think I also maybe see some new growth coming in but I'm not entirely sure. I don't really know how to look at that. Can anyone tell? Here are some measurements...
