    Excited to be part of this group

    May I ask, is the Oct Expo you are intending to attend the Tinley NARBC in Tinley Park, IL? If so I live in the area and have attended from it's inception.

    Weird "biting" behavior

    The behavior is commonly seen in king snakes and I like to call it "Tasting". It isn't really aggressive but more like an inquisitive poke and nibble to see if you're edible. lol When I see the behavior coming, I gently redirect the animal's head/attention. Now for the why all the sudden part...

    Upgrading from 10 gal to 36x24x18 for 8 month old cornsnake. Will this work for lights?

    Try not to over think. Corns need very little to thrive; a heat source, clean water, food, light, a place to hide and room to move around in order to thermoregulate and exercise. They are mostly nocturnal, so UVA/UVB doesn't really play into a "needs" category and can add a lot of expense to the...

    Old Snake with Adhesion

    What "exactly" did the vet speculate the lump was caused by? Is it an infection, a burn, a benign growth, a tumor, etc.? When it "broke" did pus weep/ooze out? What was the cream the vet gave you? Did the vet offer antibiotics, oral or injectable? I agree with the approach the reptile shop owner...

    SpiritSerpents 2024 pairings

    I raise chickens and quail and occasionally one of the older ladies will lay a rubbery/unshelled egg. Chronic soft shelled eggs are usually a calcium deficiency in birds but the occasional one is probably a hiccup in the shelling process. That said, I was curious as to their viability so I've...

    Care of the Breeding Female

    Eggs left outside the lay box is normal for some snakes. In my experience these eggs are usually infertile. Occasionally you get a snake that just didn't read the manual and lays none of her clutch in the lay box but rather scattered throughout the enclosure or, worse yet, in her water bowl...

    Corn snake acting different than usual

    You didn't say if you have other corn snakes. If you do and any of them are female, you could be looking at breeding behavior. Males go on seek and copulate missions this time of year, frequently in response to pheromones wafting in the air. As long as nothing else in his environment has changed...
