    Male red aggression

    Hi Dylan, yes, he is massive. He did brumate for about 2 months, and came out with an appetite. He will only charge me out of his enclosure at this point. He came screaming across the room and instinctually, I jumped on the table. . Hard not to flinch when you have a tank coming at you. I think...

    Male red aggression

    My 1 year old male has been charging at me today out side of his enclosure. Could this be just teen aggression? He has not done this before, and has been friendly. He is about 10 lbs is so.

    Should I turn down the temp for hibernation or just leave it normal?

    I shouldn’t be concerned about them coming out from time to time basking then going back in their hide? I just few as though I am missing something or not doing it right. I only had my female last year, and she didn’t go into brumation.

    Should I turn down the temp for hibernation or just leave it normal?

    I picked up a juvenile Male Red. I got him 2 weeks ago. I unboxed him, let him settle in then when into brumation. I check on him, and make sure there is water in his enclosure. He is housed with my 2’ female. Temp on the cool side is 74, and about 110 on the basking side about 12” away from...

    Substrate depth

    hello all, I am having a custom enclosure built. I am wondering what depth of substrate is recommended? Brutus is a little over 20”, and likes to burrow down on the cooler side of her temp enclosure. Basically I am wondering how deep I should make the bottom of the enclosure?

    HELP PLEASE. (won't eat)

    Molly, mine threw up also. Could have been the food. I would feed light and just watch for a few days. Rodney feeds a mixed medley of meat, papaya, mango, avocado, and a monkey mix or something like that.

    Throwing up

    Update from the throwing up. I fed her small pieces of chicken leg, bone and marrow this am. Nothing in the enclosure when I returned home this evening. I will continue to watch her closely. Any idea what can cause the vomiting?

    Throwing up

    Thank you ! I will give that a shot tomorrow. I have never fed her wet dog food and she is not the biggest fan of gizzards. I have some chicken legs that I can cut up bone and all.

    Throwing up

    I have a female B and W. I fed her raw prawns with shell and some papaya this am. I can home from work, and noticed that she had thrown them back up. Any ideas people? I plan on keeping an eye on her and if it persists I will to take her to her vet. Mike
