    Almost Lost Her, I Think.

    So earlier this year my neighbors red footed tortoise, Nina, was developing soft shell. I know she wasn't mine, but I go over my neighbors house a lot. She is a cute little thing and I love reptiles. So when I held her I started noticing the shell was semi-waxy, or how shall I...

    Ours Is Called Sparky

    Sparky is an Eastern Blue Tongue.  He is soooo sweet, and such a cutie!  I love him.  We got him for our son's seventh birthday, but really he is more Mom and Dad's pet than the kiddos.  Our two year old is adorable with him.  She loves him to death...

    Perfect Pet For Me

    I had a bearded dragon, Draca, about 4 years ago but I ended up having to get rid of her because I moved. I loved her and always said I was eventually going to get another one. About 3 months ago, I got a baby beardie. He (she? idk yet, still a baby) was smaller than Draca...

    Skittles the Skink

    I have a Skink (a snake-like lizard) named Skittles. The group logo is actually a Blue Tongued Skink but Skittles is a Schneider Skink which, in my opinion, are much prettier but not as funny. I've had her a little over two years and the things I've learned from her are...

    Clyde

    Clyde is my leopard gecko. We aren't sure of his exact age, but he's probably about 2 years old. When I got him, he was accompanied by a female. They were a mated pair, so I found it fitting to name them Bonnie and Clyde. But Bonnie is now dead, she was shedding, which for those...
