    Blatta lateralis vs Blaptica dubia

    Good morning all, I was wondering about switching from B. dubia, which I currently have an abundance of, to B. lateralis. I know the care and feeding of both species is similar, with the exception of dubia needing a higher protein diet. I was wondering who has used both in the past and what...

    Blue Tongue Skink

    Actually that's my wife. If you want to go the dog food route, you have to use all natural, preservative free dog food. We use the Blue Buffalo Wilderness stuff. It's the blue can with a wolf on it. Then we add greens like kale, collard greens, and a tiny (like one teaspoon full) of fruit. The...

    Hi all, I am looking at possible animals to diversify my little collection. I was wondering what the temperment is like, are they tolerant of handling, are thy very flighty, etc? I'm not looking into husbandry, as I can find that on caresheets, just personal experiences. Thanks

    Lesson learned

    Tokay geckos can/will use tools, ie a piece of pvc pipe as a megaphone in the middle of the night... I just gave Galactus some new pvc pipe vertical hides over the weekend. Last night, he stuck his head in the top and called, quite loudly might I add. The combination of his naturally loud call...

    Leos and cancer

    We wanted to get this information out there because cancer is extremely rare in leopard geckos. This is a record for people who may run into similar circumstances. I will recount the story as best I can. We obtained a breeding pair of "midnight" blizzards (not a proven morph) that were at least...
