Re: Help temps?

putting a fan into each cage will increase the airflow through the cage, but if the temperature of the circulating air is high you'll just create a warm breeze as opposed to a cool one, and those fans dont move that much air, in a large cage you probably wont even notice it. you can buy small stand-...

Re: Help temps?

try hanging white net curtains, they reflect a bit of hea tback through the window, which should be opened. also large pot plants also create micro-climates but i'm not sure how many you'd need in your room.

Re: Albino Hedgehog/tenrec!

I am currently working in Sudan on the same project as your uncle, and i can gurantee you that the Sudanese government will not allow the animal to be exported under any circumstances. trying to get it out of the country will result in a massive fine and a lengthy jail term, and a sudanese prison is...

Re: Black button spiders & baboon spiders wanted (Eastern Cape)

Re: Preserving?

I have used ants in the garden to strip carcasses, but with something like a small lizard they may carry off parts that you would like to keep. you can always try taking a peice of flat slate or concrete, putting a flower pot upside down on it with the carcass inside that and check on it in about 2 ...

Re: Ticks on tortoises ...

this is a bit of a late reply, but i have had very good results using normal dog dip (Bayer Bacdip - Pick n Pay) on tortoises that had more ticks than scales. Mix the dip as you would for a dog, and turning the tortoise upside down, pour the solution in around the legs. it penetrates pretty well, an...

Re: Legal species for new viv

I have previously kept a number of leaf-folding, water lilly and painted reed frogs in the same vivarium. they all do well together being of more or less the same size (they wont eat each other), but you need to keep them well fed to keep them happy. they will take anything from drosophila, mozzies,...
