My favorite thing about my snakes shedding is when I get perfect face pieces.

Look at the notes on this ohmygoood. Was not expecting this to be such a popular photo haha

I went to check on this little jerkface this morning expecting a nice shiny newly shed snake and didn’t see him in his usual spots.  So I pulled back the paper towels and my heart stopped for a moment because he was lying belly up in a perfect little loosely coiled death spiral.  I kinda just stared at him a second and then poked him to make sure, and that’s when I realized he was just sleeping upside down.  He scooched his coils up and looked at me and then went back to sleep so I grabbed the camera.

Ah I love your leopard gecko updates so much! I used to have one but I had to rehome her because my grandparents' new cat got far too interested in her which led to a small injury. So now I get to live vicariously through your bbies. <3

Aww thanks man! So sorry to hear you had to let your little one go, I’m sure that was rough D: (One of my leos actually survived a cat attack, lost half of her tail though).

I’ll make a point of sharing more pictures of them! I know my snakes have been really hogging the limelight lately haha. Now that I have my mom’s nicer camera i feel like the leos would be perfect for adorable gifsets.

Gecko problem hopefully averted????

So this lady has decided to start laying tons of slugs because I guess she&#8217;s just really excited about making babies. However, with this recent batch she suddenly started going down hill and I was getting really worried that maybe she was egg bound or something. I found one slug several weeks ago, but she just kept getting skinnier and losing more weight since then. Until the other day, boom finally! The second slug! So she&#8217;s all cleared out now, buuuut as you can tell, still really skinny. So fingers crossed now that she&#8217;ll start eating again.

I’ve caved and gone the way of the google doc to track things with my reptiles, way easier to edit than paper. But now I’m trapped in own self inflicted data entry hell haha. 5+ years of feeding records oh boy here we go…

Hello there. I was wondering given you have gotten more success than I with dubia roaches if you wouldn't mind sharing what you do for them. I've had my adults since Febuary of this year and still haven't seen babies. I had to go and buy some more medium size ones to raise up as well as mix in my leos diet. Any help would be appreciated. Like house, food, ect.. thank you! :D

Yeah definitely!

One of the biggest things for roaches is warmth, they’re much more active and breed more readily at warmer temperatures. I don’t have exact degrees handy (I’m sure someone out there does) but if they’re seeming a little sluggish maybe adding a heating pad to the bottom of their enclosure, or somehow finding a warmer zone for them might help. I know I’m really going to run into that issue now that I’m back in Colorado since we keep our house pretty darn cold in the winter.

For housing I use some big, tall, solid colored plastic tubs with air holes punched in the top. They get lots of egg crates inside to run around on as well. I like to think they enjoy the total darkness and are more eager to do they’re thing without worrying about predators. Dubias are pretty skittish as far as feeder roaches go.

For food I feed them several things. I use my mealworm gutload to give them some grains (a mixture of whole oats, powdered milk, baby rice cereal, wheat germ, nuts, unsweetened coconut, and some other things) and a bit of cat food for protein (although I’m trying to find a better protein option). They also get tons of veggies and fruit, they love carrots, apples, squash, oranges, bananas are a favorite. I’ve also given them yam and sweet potato skins, green beans, peas, lettuce, broccoli, pretty much anything that seems like it would be delicious and healthy. Hell I’ve even just tossed in slices of whole grain bread and they think that’s AMAZING.

So that’s basically the big three: warmth, security, and lots of good food. Here’s hoping your guys start getting jiggy and giving you babies soon!

We ALMOST walked out with the Leopard BCI! Also I thought it was cute that the shadow of the label showed up on the ivory!
