“My Reptile Won’t Eat!” and Other Issues Found When it’s Cold!

  There are a lot of comments and posts about ornery snakes that just won’t eat, bearded dragons that do nothing but sleep sleep sleep and some critters that go through a completely catatonic state! Most of this is due to WINTER! Some animals will go through a month (sometimes up to 6 months) of downtime this time of year. It can be prevented (with most species) with proper habitat maintenance. Some keepers induce this state for breeding purposes. This is called Brumation. Before we get down and dirty with the facts of brumation and reptile hibernation… lets do a basic rundown of reptiles! Reptiles are Ectothermic… this means that … Continue reading

Their diet consists of hay and hay based pellets. dried fruit can be added as a treat and fresh veggies. Too much of either though can give your pup the runs.

There’s An Assassin Amongst Us!

The Assassin Snail (Clea helena), also known as the Snail Eating Snail, is a breath of fresh air in our freshwater aquariums. These guys occur naturally in Southeast Asia. They eat decaying protein, acting as a small cleaner as well as ‘assassinating’ the annoying Trumpet snails that often over run your tanks from seemingly nowhere. These guys don’t over breed like the Trumpets. 4-5 of the Assassins in your tank will have a 20-30 gallon tank clear of an infestation in about 2 months!
