    Inclusion body disease

    I took in a rescue king snake last week that the owners didn't want anymore. They told me he was only fed sporadically, and was very hungry whenever offered food. They also sent me records from his last vet visit, where the vet noted that he had neurological issues (he would bite his tail, had...

    How to adopt a tortoise from a rescue

    Thanks for posting this! I manage a website for a rescue and this is a pet peeve of mine! Another big one is "Call me if you get any [insert species here]." I'm really not interested in being a secretary. If you want a very busy volunteer with a full-time job and lots of animals to care for and...

    Kenyan sand boa

    I think she's squeezing out between the panes of glass (not sure though), so a lock may not help. She's escaped twice from that kind of cage, so I'm not risking it again.

    Kenyan sand boa

    This is Snickers, my sand boa. S/he ended up at the rescue I work with about a year ago and I snapped her up. Snickers is an escape artist, but so far the Exo Terra tank seems to be foiling her plans. (I've discovered that anything with sliding doors is a no-go.) I took this picture around...

    Glad you found him! They are very good at hiding, especially the little ones.

    Lost crested!!!

    Oh no! Try putting the food in his enclosure same as always and leaving the door open. Hopefully when he gets hungry he will go to the spot he always gets fed in. I hope you find him!

    Two sulcatas, poor conditions

    Poor babies. There was a user named Kristina (I think) that runs a rescue in Michigan. I don't know if she's been on lately, but you could try PMing her.

    Philodendron toxic to tree frogs?

    Not true, since frogs don't eat plants. I've had philodendron in with my tree frogs since I've had them (~2yrs). The leaves are nice and wide, so it makes a great place for them to sleep.

    Yellowfoot tortoise pair in Indiana

    They are no longer available. And if I'm understanding you correctly, you want another tortoise to put in with your box turtle? It's a very bad idea to mix species. Best to let your boxie rule her castle by herself; she may not want to share anyway.

    Wild lizard very hurt

    Most vets will take care of wild animals for free. If you take it in they can euthanize it humanely.

    Crested gecko lighting??

    What are your temps? Cresties do very well at room temperature, so I've never needed anything to heat mine. You need to be very careful if you are heating them, because temperatures above 80 can be deadly. That said, I do have regular light bulbs on my terrariums, but those are for the plants...

    Cabin-fever Aquisitions! & lighting question.

    I would say no to the coil bulb, just to be safe. I'm not sure if they need UV and how much. I would recommend dusting their food with calcium + vitamin D either way.
