    Is this not a male Russian?

    Male or female? 0.1.0 Dachshund 0.0.1 Redfoot 1.0.0 Greek [hr] Can't seem to upload a pic on here I guess. Any Instagram users want to verify that this is a male. It's a video of a Russian on user "thebridgetsofar" and it's hands down a male no questions asked but the vet apparently said its...

    Think about getting a few bearded dragons

    I definitely wouldn't recommend a chameleon. It depends on the type of pet you're looking for. Do you want one that you can handle often or one that you only handle seldomly. Beardies and Leo's are good of you want something to handle on a regular basis but crested geckos and chameleons...

    Think about getting a few bearded dragons

    Making their food is much more convenient to me then buying crickets every few days or breeding feeders. 0.1.0 Dachshund 0.0.1 Redfoot 1.0.0 Greek

    Think about getting a few bearded dragons

    Crested geckos require no lighting or heating in most conditions and only require live food seldomly as treats. Their only maintenance is misting and a new bowl of CGD. 0.1.0 Dachshund 0.0.1 Redfoot 1.0.0 Greek

    How big is the tortoise? I cannot imagine a 7-8 year old Redfoot living comfortably in a 4ft cage. 0.1.0 Dachshund 0.0.1 Redfoot 1.0.0 Greek

    Think about getting a few bearded dragons

    I was babysitting a bearded dragon a few months ago. He rarely pooped in his cage because he was soaked every morning, and poop was just flushed down the sink which he soaks in. Poop in the cage didn't smell too bad since it was a juvenile. 0.1.0 Dachshund 0.0.1 Redfoot 1.0.0 Greek [hr] If you...

    Anyone else here tired of being deleted or fluffed?

    Yes they should be prepared for hostile debates and arguments. This. Is. The. Internet. I don't know what candy land some people are living in when they are surprised or offended by what anyone says on the Internet. Half the time, the people being offended a) are actually wrong and b) aren't...

    Anyone else here tired of being deleted or fluffed?

    This is the only forum I belong to that "fluffs and removes" material. In my opinion, you accept all risks of posting on the forum when you chose to do so. This is the Internet. People should be prepared for arguing, hostile debates. The censorship or removal of things should only be removed, in...

    Plywood only as substrate - (and how to clean?)

    I think it is only fair to mimic their natural habitats as best as possible, and a flat floor is definitely not a part of any tortoises natural environment. 0.1.0 Dachshund 0.0.1 Redfoot 1.0.0 Greek [hr] Also, I don't see how a tortoise could successfully make a nest and lay eggs with a hard...

    Survey(ish): To use artificial UVB or not. THAT is the question.

    I only use artificial UVB during the winter for my Redfoot. The rest of the year my tortoise gets natural sunlight a few hours every day. 0.1.0 Dachshund 0.0.1 Redfoot 1.0.0 Greek

    Tropical fixture light???

    When I googled it and saw the fixtures online all the descriptions says 25. I was thinking it was a typo and was suppose to be 2.5. If you get the same type of fixture I would still remove the plastic. 0.1.0 Dachshund 0.0.1 Redfoot 1.0.0 Greek

    Tropical fixture light???

    I am not sure whether or not it is the appropriate UVB output, although I've used 5.0 for my red foot so 25 seems high, but those fixtures have a plastic cover over the bulbs that seem counterproductive and will probably filter out some of the UVB. I would suggest removing the plastic if you do...

    Set my quit date!

    I quit using the vapes also. I still vape occasionally but I don't smoke anymore. If you have been smoking for a long time it's a good idea to wean yourself off the nicotine and vapes give you that option with different nicotine levels. 0.1.0 Dachshund 0.0.1 Redfoot 1.0.0 Greek
