Maybe Coming Back   - Tue, 22 Feb 2011 20:22:43 GMT

I just wanted to take a minute. To say that I am considering using . What little time BT allows for the free accounts. To do a short segment once a week. I think that the short show may make it easier to cover certain topics. So I'm going to give it a whirl maybe. I'll try and keep the listeners posted on what I decide to do. I just wanted to say that I miss all the listeners and I look forward to maybe getting back in touch with some of you guys. I may even go premium for a couple months and try it. Never can tell what I may decide. So keep a check on us.

Common Name: Amazon tree boa

Other Common Names: common tree boa, garden tree boa, ATB

Scientific Name: Corallus hortulanus (Full Taxonomy)

Group: Boa


Origin and or Range:

Found in South America in southern Colombia east of the Andes, southern Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, Amazonian Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Trinidad & Tobago and Bolivia. The type locality given is "America." Relative Size: Average Arboreal 5 TO 6 Foot range and very slinder bodys (as compared to other snakes)

Average Lifespan 15 to 20+?? year(s)

Activity level:

Nocturnal and arboreal species, As nocturnal reptiles, Amazon Tree Boas are inactive during the day. Amazon Tree Boas are aggressive and very alert animals.

their constant heightened level of alertness, they are prone to striking and biting..


(Note: from my experience with these if you have to handle this snake best time to do so is during the day time hours the snake is groggy and kinda out if it and less likely to strike compared to doing it at night when there fully alert and waiting for prey to pass in front of them.)


Description:

Adults grow to an average of 5 and 6.5 feet in length. Temperament depends on the individual. Some are very docile when handled, whereas others are more aggressive and pure EVIL!! .

very thin body and a large, triangular-shaped head with long, sharp teeth and large, bulging eyes. colors from black, brown, or gray, to literally any shade of red, orange, yellow, or any color in between. Some totally patternless, while others may be speckled, banded, or saddled with rhomboid or chevron shapes. Some reds will have yellow patterns, some yellows red or orange patterns.

'garden phase' refers to boas with drab coloration, mostly brown or olive, with varied patterning, while the 'colored phase' refers to animals with combinations of red, orange, and yellow coloring.

Vivarium/Caging :
Amazon Tree Boas require a habitat with very high humidity. So, they need a terrarium that can retain humidity. However, the habitat must also allow for adequate ventilation to help prevent fungal and bacterial growth, which can lead to illness. A glass terrarium or aquarium with a partially screened cover works well for this species. Accustomed to life in the trees, these arboreal animals also require a lot of vertical space with plenty of levels and places to climb and perch.

Perches like branches, vines or other plants should be criss-crossed to form forks in which the snakes can lie. Wooden dowels, driftwood and other pieces of wood with nooks or flat surfaces also work well with Amazon Tree Boas (I have used real live small to medium ficuss trees and they work very well help retain humdity and are naturalistic decor) .

Due to their aggressive behavior, Amazon Tree Boas should be housed separately or in 1.1 mating pairs. minimum of 24 inches X 36 X 24 for a breeding pair, although it is probably a good idea to get something a little larger so that you can work around them when feeding etc

Humidity/Hydration:
Humidity is very important for all reptiles, Relatively high cage humidity should be provided these boas. Live plants can add beauty to a cage and also help elevate humidity. Baby Amazon tree boas can be maintained in a 5 to 10 gallon capacity terrarium. Adults should have a terrarium of at least a 20 gallon capacity and a 30 to 50 gallon size is probably better.

A temperature gradient of 75 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit should be provided. Although they do not always climb, horizontal perches of about the same diameter as the snakes body and climbing space should be provided. Amazon tree boas will usually choose a forked branch on which to coil. When the snakes are in elevated positions they usually anchor themselves with their prehensile tail.

**Dehydration can result in regurgitation or refusal to eat.** (helpful tip: i used a plastic realistic water croc drill a hole at a angle with a power drill install a fish tank pump air hose thru the hole with a air stone on it and connect it to the air pump its self this will help maintain humidity.

Promote the snake to come down and drink sence dehydration with them is a problem and it also seemed it helped them to poop better from the bubbles massaging there who ha i use this same tach tic with all lizards as well and it works very well)

Shedding/Temperature/Climate:
Amazon Boa's will normally shed without difficulty so long as the humidity is kept at an optimal level.
80-85 F by day, 75-78 F by night. It is recommended to mist the enclosure at least twice daily, bringing the humidity up to 80-90% or higher.

Food/Prey:
In captivity, they can thrive on pre-killed rodents, such as mice and rats of proper size. Prey should be no wider than the widest part of the snake's body adults once every 10-14 days. Feed Juveniles once every 5-7 days. In nature, Amazon Tree Boas feed on small mammals, birds, and the occasional lizard.

Reproduction:
Live birth , Ovoviviparous Producing an average of between 1 and 12 young at a time, sometimes even more. Litters exceeding these numbers are extremely rare.


Summery:
A majority of the Amazon Tree boas today are imported from Colombia and Suriname. While being easer to care for than Emerald Tree Boas, Amazon Tree Boas are still a minority in captive collections due to their behavior, amount of care needed, and lack of color compared to Emerald Tree Boas. Imported and wild-caught animals are often irritable, under stress, and take a long time to settle into a captive environment.

They can be difficult feeders preferring small reptiles, frogs, and birds as prey. A captive raised specimen that is already feeding on mice is the better choice. In a nut shell . Despite their unfriendly disposition, Amazon Tree boas are beautiful display animal for the advanced keeper even in the simplest of cages. They are often sitting in direct view and rarely seek out a secluded hiding are once adjusted to their home.

Common Name:Haitian Boa

Other Common Names: Haitian Slender Boa AND Hispanic Tree Boa

Scientific Name: : Epicrates gracilis (Full Taxonomy)

Group: Boa


Distribution
The Haitian Boa is a fairly large snake native to the West Indies. While wild-caught specimens are usually moderately aggressive, they can become quite docile with regular handling. Unfortunately, it is difficult to feed young captive born Haitian Boas and, as a result, they are not commonly available

The Haitian Boa usually lives in damp, wooded regions. They are nocturnal, meaning they are active at night. During the daytime, they rarely move and when they do, they move very slowly. Mature Haitian Boas feed primarily on rodents and birds. The juvenile snakes feed only on small lizards. They are primarily arboreal, spending most of their time in trees. Haitian Boas will, when frightened, emit a foul smelling musk from their anal glands. While wild-caught Haitian Boas are usually somewhat aggressive and nervous when first caught, they can become quite docile once they are accustomed to their surroundings and used to being handled.


Averaging between six and seven feet, the Haitian Boa is a large snake. Some specimens have been recorded at nine feet or more. They have slender, agile bodies that are well suited for climbing trees. Their skin is usually tan or grey with dark brown blotches that are often edged in black. The blotches are sometimes in a chain pattern. The head exhibits a dark line directly behind the eye.

Handling :
When it comes to handling your glades most are if all WC so most will come ready to take aim while other are calmer. After you work with them a bit they calm right down. But each snake is different some might never change from trying to take your face of every chance they get to some can be the calmest snake you own.

The Haitian Boa is found on the island of Hispaniola in the West Indies. It is a subspecies of the Bahama Boa, which also includes snakes from Cat Island, Ragged Islands, Margaret Cay, Andros and the Berry Islands.

Specific Care Information :
Relative Care Ease: Average Haitian Boas are large snakes that require a large, tall enclosure. They should be provided with branches to climb on. Temperature and humidity levels should tropical.

Juveniles are notoriously difficult to feed in captivity. Some hobbyists suggest raising humidity in order to promote feeding. Breeding and Propagation: Relative Breeding Ease: Average While Haitian Boas have been bred in captivity, it is not common. Mating is more likely when more than one male is present.

The snakes mate in winter and early spring. Haitian Boas give birth to live young, usually about six months after mating. They usually have around 15 babies, but some have upwards of around 40. Still births and infertility are common problems. Feeding the captive offspring is usually the biggest challenge as they will only eat small lizards.

Common Name: Yellow Anaconda

Scientific Name: Eunectes notaeus

Group: Boidae


Distribution:
The yellow anaconda is found in southern South America in eastern Bolivia, Southern Brazil, Paraguay, and northeastern Argentina.

Description:
Yellow anacondas tend to be a more aggressive species, but CBB specimens can settle down quite nicely with the proper handling. Their background color can vary from bright yellow, golden-tan, or a greenish-yellow with black or brown blotches and some streaks and blotches on their sides. Males average at about 6 to 8 feet and females average at about 10 to12 feet, Neonates are approximately 16-24inc Unlike most snakes Yellow Anacondas usually strike from the side instead of straight on. If properly cared for yellow anacondas can live 10-30 years in captivity.

Enclosure:
I strongly urge you not to use an aquarium with a screen top due to the difficulty in keeping the humidity and temperatures up. If you do decide to use a screen top, make sure that you cover 75% of the lid with plastic or a towel to help hold in the temps and humidity. For neonates I recommend using shoebox or sweater box Rubbermaid totes


Too big of a cage for a neonate will stress it out and may make it difficult to keep it healthy. For adult males I recommend having at least a 48x24x24 cage, and for a female a 72x30x18 cage. Remember floor space is more important then height with this species.


It is up to you if you put a water dish big enough for it to soak, if you do, you need to make sure that you change the water every couple of days. Anacondas will defecate in their water and if not change on a regular basic can cause scale infections and water blisters. If you decide not to give them a water dish to soak in you must make sure that you keep the humidity levels up a little higher during shed to ensure a proper shed.

There are many different types of substrate that can be used. I prefer newspaper because it s easy to change, but you can also use paper towels, cypress mulch, and many others. Cypress mulch is great for holding humidity but remember too much humidity is just as bad as not having enough. Make sure that you never use any substrate containing Cedar as this is deadly to reptiles. It is important to use a hide with this species to help reduce stress.

Temperature/Humidity:
Yellow anacondas should be provided a basking temperature of 90-92 F. with an ambient temperature of 81-83 F. Make sure you monitor your temperatures, NEVER guess


Yellow anacondas are more tolerant to lower levels of humidity then greens, but it is still essential to provide the proper humidity levels. This species requires the humidity to be at 60%, there are a few ways you can do this. One way to keep the humidity up is to use cypress mulch and mist it as needed, make sure you watch out that there is no mold in the cage, if you spot mold it is essential to clean it out as soon as possible. A second way of giving the animal humidity is to create a humid hide, this is done by getting a plastic container, with damp sphagnum moss, and cut a hold in the side or on the top to give the animal access to it. Keep in mind, Humidity is not how wet the cage is but how much water vapor is in the air, a soggy and wet cage can lead to bacterial, fungal, an repertory infections, and other health related issues, and even death if not treated properly.

Feeding:
For neonates and juvenile anacondas you should feed 1 appropriately sized meal (no bigger then the thickest part of the snake) once every 7 days. Some picky eaters might require mice, or day old chicks or quail. Adults can be fed once every 10-14 days. Larger specimens can eat rabbits or guinea pigs. It is strongly advised to feed F/T (Frozen/Thawed) prey instead of live. If you must feed live, NEVER leave the prey item with the snake unsupervised. Anacondas have slow metabolisms so you must not handle the snake after eating for at least 48-72 hours minimum.


Comments:
Yellow anacondas can be very rewarding for the experienced keeper with basic knowledge of animal husbandry and experience with larger species, or can be a complete nightmare with some w/c specimens if not kept properly

Origin and or Range:
Found in South America deep in the rain forest and in the Amazon Basin region of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, northern Bolivia, Brazil, and from Venezuela to Suriname and the Guiana's within the so-called Northern Shield.
The type locality given is "Americae." The 'Basin' variant', as the name suggests, is only found along the basin of the Amazon River,
in southern Suriname, southern Guiana, southern Venezuela to Colombia, Peru and Brazil and in the surrounding jungles of the Amazon River.
Larger Than Average Arboreal 5 TO 7 FOOT RANGE (as compared to other snakes) Average Lifespan: 10-15+?? year(s)

Activity level:

Nocturnal and arboreal species, it spends its days in a characteristic

coil over a tree branch with its head perched at the centre. At night, it will remain coiled on its branch, but extends its head downwards, curled as if about to strike. It will hold still in this position, waiting for prey to approach directly below. Prey is grasped with the long frontal teeth, pulled in and constricted to asphyxiation.
Note: from my experience with these if you have to handle this snake best time to do so is during the day time hours the snake is groggy and kinda out if it and less likely to strike compared to doing it at night when there fully alert and waiting for prey to pass in front of them.

Animal Description:
Adults grow to average of 6 feet in length. They have highly developed front teeth that are likely proportionately larger than those of any other non-venomous snake.
The color pattern typically consists of an emerald green ground color with a white irregular interrupted zigzag stripe or so-called 'lightning bolts' down the back and a yellow belly.
The bright coloration and markings are very distinctive among South American snakes (C. caninus appears very similar to the green tree python, Morelia viridis, from Southeast Asia and Australia.
Only very distantly related, this is an example of convergent evolution. Physical differences include the head scalation and the location of the heat pits around the mouth.)

Vivarium/Caging :
Since the Emerald Boa is a highly arboreal snake, a suitable vivarium needs height and sturdy branches/perches for the snake to climb on. They have a very slow metabolism, and will spend long periods wrapped around a single branch. Therefore a very large enclosure is not required. A 36" cube style is ideal, and the key to successfully keeping and breeding these snakes is simplicity - use a simple substrate or paper towels, no hide box (since these boas will coil around a branch rather than hide) and a large bowl of water to keep the humidity up.

Humidity.
Humidity is very important for all reptiles, but especially so for the Emerald Tree Boa. During the day, humidity should be close to 70-80%+ and during night close to 45-60%. The emerald's aquarium should be kept humid enough during all cycles of its life, ensuring proper health.

These boas are prone to dehydration, and allowing the humidity to drop below 50% for extended periods. Can cause serious health issues and even death. During the mating cycle, it is recommended to increase the daily humidity, to 70-90% and the night one towards 55%.
The night time humidity levels are to be kept low, because that allows the vivarium to dry, minimizing possible bacterial infections.

Helpful tip: i used a plastic realistic water croc drill a hole at a angle with a power drill install a fish tank pump air hose thru the hole with a air stone on it and connect it to the air pump its self this will help maintain humidity and promote the snake to come down and drink sence dehydration with them is a problem and it also seemed it helped them to poop better from the bubbles massaging there who ha i use this same tachtic with all lizards as well and it works very well.

Shedding Period:
Emeralds will normally shed without difficulty so long as the humidity is kept at an optimal level.

Temperature/Climate:
When it comes to temperature, there are three cycles that you actually should take under consideration. The one is the maintenance cycle, which begins six days after the feeding and lasts until the next time you will feed the emerald. The temperature in this case should range between 72F and 84F.

The second cycle is the feeding cycle. The average temperature of this cycle should be also around 82F. In any case, the temperature should not rise above 90F before and after the feeding time. The third and last cycle, is the mating cycle.

. During the breeding and reproduction time, the temperature should be at 86F during the day and close to 70F during night. This cycle lasts for 12 weeks. After this, it should be back to normal maintenance cycle.

Food/Prey:
The baby emerald tree boa needs one prey item of a suitable size (no larger than the girth of the snake) every fourteen days. Neonate boas need one full defecation after every feed.
As an adult, the Emerald Boa needs one feed every twenty one to twenty eight days. The adult boas need in this case one full defecation for every two to three meals. The size of prey offered should be on the small size, certainly smaller than the girth of the snake. Once the small animal is given to the snake, you shouldn't be able to notice something more than a slight enlargement in the body of the boa. Over feeding with large prey, or too many meals will cause obesity and digestive problems which this species is especially prone to and problematic regurgation in emerald tree boas if humidity, temperature, and approprite prey size are not met

Reproduction:
Live birth , Ovoviviparous Producing an average of between 6 and 14 young at a time, sometimes even more. Litters exceeding these numbers are extremely rare. Newly born neonate's gradually go through an ontogenetic color change over a period of 10 to 12 months, turning to full

The black rat snake or Elaphe obsoleta obsoleta is also known as the pilot black snake, black snake or chicken snake. It prefers heavily wooded areas it has an excellent climbing ability it will climb more than 30ft for a meal they also are very good swimmers but they only swim if they have to. There are no know subspecies of black rat snakes.





Description:
The black rat snake is a big snake they can get over 8ft an have a greater then a mans forearm. Their colour is black an with a white belly but some can get fully black. The record is 101 inches making the largest North America rat snake and one of the longest snakes in North America.

Behavior:
Black rat snakes as babies are very sigh snakes they will run when you touch them some are nippy some will musical on ya or both loll but they calm down after a while of handling. When they get bigger they tend to mellow out like a corn snake but they but not all tame down so be prepared if your does not.


care:
Caring for a black snake is like caring for a corn snake or any other NA rat snake they a need 30gal as the smallest you can go bigger is always better a 3ft tube will hold one well. As for the babies a 5.5gal to 10gal holds babies fine a shoe box size tube works well to.Jivs will do fine in a 10gal or tube of similar size. Feeding them is easy babies eat pinkies

Jivs will eat fuzzes, hoppers to small mice as adults they will eat small rats an up.


Breeding black rats is the same as with corn snakes you have to bur-mate them for 2 to 3 months usually December through February then slowly bring the temps back up they have to be at least 3ft an 150 grams if not wait till next year to breed or you might have problems. After she the male have bred she will lay 5 to 30 eggs deepening on her size. The eggs should hatch in 6 to 8 weeks when they hatch set them up in there cage an after their first shed they will eat new-born pinkie mice. Black rat snakes also come in a few morphs as albino, hypo, brindle, white-sided and calico cow sucker.

Distribution :
Blood Pythons are an Indonesian species that is found in palm plantations, tropical forests, and marshes in the Malaysian Peninsula, Eastern Sumatra, and Surrounding Islands.

Description:
Blood Pythons are very robust snakes. Males average 4-5 Ft and females average 4 - 6 ft but larger specimens up to 9 has been recorded but is uncommon. Their pattern and markings can vary a great deal with blotched markings, with their coloration varying from gold, yellow, brown, all the way to bright red. Wild-Caught bloods can be quite aggressive and nervous but a CBB animal tends to settle down and be quite docile with constant gentle handling and can be quite fun to handle. Blood Pythons can live 25+ years in captivity if cared for properly.

Enclosure:
Hatchling and juvenile Bloods seem to do better in smaller enclosures, they feel more secure. A small blood in a large enclosure can stress out the animal and be overwhelming for it. I recommend using rubbermaids or satellite totes, just make sure to have proper ventilation and a secure lid. For an adult Blood I recommend having at least a 4x2x2 cage, floor space is more important then height so always choose a wider cage then a higher one. I strongly recommend not using any screened enclosures due to the fact that its extremely difficult to maintain the proper humidity. Which ever method you decide to use to house your Blood Python, make sure that you give it the right thermal gradient with a hot end and a cool end.

There are several different substrates that are acceptable, I prefer newspaper or paper towels because its very easy to maintain, however cypress is great for holding humidity. Don't forget though that too much humidity is just as bad as too little.

Hides are important with this species, especially as hatchling and juveniles. I recommend having one tight hide on the hot end and one on the cool end.

A water dish big enough for the blood to soak in is preferred, the blood will take advantage of it sooner or later. You should always make sure that you provide fresh clean water at all times.

Temperature/Humidity:
Blood pythons should be provided a basking temperature of 86 F (not always necessary) with an ambient temperature of 80-82 F. The ambient temperature should never go under 75 F.

For juveniles and hatchlings I like to give my bloods 70-75% humidity, and for my adults I prefer 65-70% humidity. It may be needed to raise the humidity during shed cycles. A few good ways to raise humidity is by misting and providing a humidity hide, which is a hide with a moist towel or paper towel in it to increase the humidity inside the hide but make sure if using this method to keep the towel clean by replacing it regularly.

Dont confuse humidity by being wet, humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air. It is extremely vital that you get the temperatures and humidity right for this species, use hygrometers, thermometers, and a thermostat or rheostat to control and monitor the humidity level and temperature.

Feeding:
Hatchlings and juveniles should be fed one appropriate size rodent (no bigger then the snakes widest point) once weekly. Adults should only be fed once every 2 weeks. It is very important to watch your bloods weight, they are very prone to obesity due to their slow metabolisms and strong feeding responses. It is preferred that you only feed F/T or P/K rodents, live can injure or even kill a snake, so it is very important to reframe from feeding live when possible. If you have to feed live make sure you are there and paying attention incase it goes wrong. Never leave a live rodent in the cage unattended.

Comments:
Blood Pythons are a great and exciting snake for the experience keeper with a basic understanding of husbandry. With proper care these animals will thrive but if not kept properly can be very frustrating and difficult to keep healthy and alive. Its going to be exciting to see what new morphs will come out in the future

Description:
Dumeril's boas (Boa dumerili, formerly Acrantophis dumerili) are a medium sized boid with an average length of 4-6 feet with rare individuals attaining maximum lengths of 7-9 feet. They are a heavy bodied ground dwelling species and can easily weigh up to 20 pounds. Dumeril's boas have docile temperaments, can be easily handled, and tend to be very reluctant to bite. They can be easily sexed visually due to the fact that males have obvious cloacal spurs which are absent from females.




Distribution:
Dumeril's boas are found on the islands of Madagascar and Reunion located off the southeastern coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean. In Madagascar, they inhabit semi-arid habitats in the southwestern regions of the country.

They share some of the northern parts of their range with the Madagascan ground boa and may even interbreed with them in the wild where their natural ranges overlap. They are a CITES appendix I animal and their status in the wild is classified as vulnerable by the IUCN which mean that they are threatened with extinction mainly due to habitat destruction and human encroachment. Although captive bred specimens are readily obtainable from reputable breeders.


Taxonomy:
The Dumeril's boa was once thought to be a subspecies of the Madagascan ground boa and was known as Acrantophis madagascariensis dumerili until it was acknowledged as a species in its own right. Dumeril's boas and Madagascan ground boas were once in their own genus of Acrantophis but have more recently been reclassified into the Boa genus.

However, many proponents of these two species do not agree with the recent classification and continue to use the scientific names of Acrantophis dumerili and Acrantophis madagascariensis for the Dumeril's boa and Madagascan ground boa respectively.

Enclosure:
A 4 foot long by 2 foot wide enclosure is more than adequate for the average size adult Dumeril's boa. Neonates can be kept in 10-20 gallon long glass tanks. I find that like most snakes Dumeril's boas don't appreciate the finer points of cage decorating. Decorative plants and vines invariably end up getting trampled over and trashed. A basic hide or two and a water bowl are all that's necessary.

Substrate:
80-85 F by day, 75-78 F by night. It is recommended to mist the enclosure at least twice daily, bringing the humidity up to 80-90% or higher.

Food/Prey:
In captivity, they can thrive on pre-killed rodents, such as mice and rats of proper size. Prey should be no wider than the widest part of the snake's body adults once every 10-14 days. Feed Juveniles once every 5-7 days. In nature, Amazon Tree Boas feed on small mammals, birds, and the occasional lizard.

Temperature/Humidity:
Dumeril's prefer lower temps than the average red-tailed boa. Their enclosures should have a hot side with temps around 85-88 degrees Fahrenheit and a cool side of 75-80 degrees. In my experience Dumeril's will spend the majority of their time on the cool end of their enclosures and periodically bask on the warm end especially at night as they are a nocturnal species.



Heat can be provided using heat lamps, pads, tape, or radiant heat panels (my personal preference). Humidity should be kept in the mid-range at around 50%. Misting the enclosure may be necessary especially during the winter months when ambient household humidity usually drops.

When in shed Dumeril's boas benefit from a slight increase in humidity and may even make use of a humid hide created by placing moist sphagnum moss inside of a hide.

Feeding:
All snakes are carnivores. Dumeril's boas should be fed a diet consisting of appropriately sized rodents. I highly recommend feeding frozen/thawed rodents or pre-killed prey items. While neonates can be fed fuzzy mice I recommend switching them to rats as soon as possible to avoid problems converting them to rats further down the road.

These animals are ambush predators and may be shy eaters. Stubborn feeders may need to be fed in a small dark enclosure and sometimes a frozen/thawed rodent may have to be left in their enclosure with them over night. Young snakes should be fed every 7-10 days and larger juveniles and adults should be fed about every 14-20 days as they seem to be fairly lazy animals with a slower metabolism and a tendency to become overweight.

Breeding:
In their natural habitat in Madagascar, Dumeril's boas are said to reach sexual maturity at about 18 months of age. In captivity, they can be successfully bred at around 4-5 years of age. Many breeders will keep a breeding pair together all year long.

Dumeril's boas are ovoviviparous meaning that the embryos develop within eggs that are held inside the females' bodies until they give birth to live young. To facilitate breeding the Dumeril's boas should be subjected to a cooling period to simulate natural seasonal changes in late October to early November.

Temperatures should be allowed to reach 80 degrees in the daytime and heat sources should be turned off at night and enclosure lighting should be reduced to 6-8 hours per day. Breeding will take place during this time and temperatures can be gradually raised back to normal in two months time in late January to early February.

An ovulating female will have a noticeable bump in her belly. A gravid female must be kept warm with a basking spot. The gestation period for Dumeril's boas typically lasts 6-8 months but can last as long as nine months. While some snakes will go off food for the duration of the pregnancy, the female Dumeril's boa may be offered a smaller than average meal every 15-20 days.

Prior to giving birth the female will have a pre-birth shed and birth can take place as soon as 1 day following shedding to 2 or 3 weeks. The male should be removed from the enclosure after the female has shed as aggression from the male has been observed by some keepers during this time. A typical litter consists of 6-12 babies each measuring 16-19 inches in length.

Neonatal care
Baby Dumeril's boas should be removed from the birthing enclosure as soon as they absorb their egg sacs. Dumeril's boas have even been known to shed and take food on the same day they are born. Neonates can be housed individually in plastic shoebox style racks or 10-20 gallon tanks.

They should be maintained at the same captive conditions as adults in regards to temperature and humidity. They will typically shed within 7-10 days after birth and feeding of an appropriately sized food item can be attempted. Shy feeders may need to be left alone in a darkened enclosure with a food item overnight.

Morphs:
As far as I am aware there are no known morphs of Dumeril's boas widely available but I have heard that hypomelanistic individuals are currently being bred in the United States and Europe. Also, in Germany a line of T+ albinos (also known as Caramels) are being developed. There are also breeders selectively breeding for color to produce high red animals

Dumeril's boas are great animals to work with and have many aficionados amongst reptile keepers due to their beautiful markings, calm temperament, and medium size.

Description:
The everglades rat snake is noth american rat found only in south florida and the everglades.They are in the NA rat snake family along with the black rat,yellow rat and texes rat snake Due to the draining of the glades and planting of Casaurinatrees everglades rats began moving more north and yellow rats starting coming down south.The two sub species interbreed alot.Due to this finding true orange - red color everglades is very hard



Caging/set up :
When it comes to caging your everglades they get between 3 to 5ft so a 40gal wood be perfect for a single glades or a pair have a water bowl big enough for the snake to soak his/her body in if they want to soak due to going into shed.you can use aspen and wood cips and eco earth as bedding but news paper is the cheaps and easyer if you want.You can also keep them in rack systems and rubber made tubs if you don't want a tank.

Temperature/Humidity:
For the hot spot 88 to 90 and the cool side in the low 80s.As for humidity 50 to 60% wood be fine.

Handling :
When it comes to handling your glades most are if all WC so most will come ready to take aim while other are calmer.after you work with them abit they calm right down.But each snake is different some might never change from trying to take your face of every chance they get to some can be the calmest snake you own.

Breeding :
ou can breed them the same as corn snakes they wil lay any were between 5 to 30 eggs which take about 55-60 days to hatch.When they first hatch they might only want lizards to eat but can be switched over to rodents pretty easy.

Comments:
everglades make great pets its not a snake most people have there are some morphs of everglades out there.But i like the normal everglades better.They a good snake for someone wanting a rat snake or a snake natural beauty.

Carpet pythons (Morelia spilota) are quickly becoming a popular snake in the hobby with many subspecies and morphs to choose from. Here we will discuss the three most popular subspecies that are commonly kept in the US coastal carpet pythons (Morelia spilota mcdowelli), jungle carpet pythons (Morelia spilota cheynei), and Irian Jaya or West Papuan carpet pythons (Morelia spilota harrisoni). Coastal carpet pythons and jungle carpet pythons are Australian in origin where they can still be commonly found in the wild. Coastals come from the areas of eastern Queensland and northeastern New South Wales while jungles can be found in northeastern Queensland. Irian Jayas come from the Merauke region of Papua New Guinea and also along the northern coast of Australia.



Temperament :
All subspecies of carpet pythons are similar in temperament. Most are nippy as babies and typically grow out of this behavior by the time they reach a year old with regular handling from a calm and patient keeper. Some keepers may feel the necessity to use a hook when removing carpet pythons from their enclosures. Hook training is not a bad idea considering their adult size especially that of coastal carpet pythons.

Size:
Coastals are the largest of the group averaging lengths of 7-9 feet with extremely large females growing to an excess of 10 feet or more. Jungles average 5-7 feet with some individuals reaching 9 foot lengths. Irian Jayas are the smallest of the three reaching a maximum length of 6 feet but averaging only 4-5 feet.

Feeding:
arpet pythons tend to have voracious appetites and feeding is typically not a problem. In my experience I have never had one refuse a meal. However, some keepers will experience an issue with converting them from mice to rats. My best advice is to start them feeding on rats as soon as possible and in the case of a stubborn feeder scenting with mice.

Enclosures:
Hatchlings and juveniles can be kept in simple 10 or 20 gallon glass tanks or similarly sized plastic enclosures. Once they reach about four feet in length a 36''x24''x18'' would be perfect. Larger adults that are six foot plus will need an enclosure that is at least 48''x24''x18''. Carpet pythons are semi-arboreal and will enjoy having cage furnishings that allow them to climb. I use 2-3 naturalistic bamboo poles (some keepers use PVC pipe) mounted on varying levels for this purpose, it is also possible to install a shelf in some enclosures for the snake to use as a perch. An appropriately sized hide should be provided (carpet pythons can commonly be seen perching atop their hides) and a bowl of fresh water should always be available.

Temperature/Humidity:
As with all reptiles, carpet python enclosures should have a hot side and a cool side which will allow the snakes to thermoregulate. The cool end of their enclosures should range between 75-80 degrees while the hot side should range from 85-90 degrees. Radiant heat panels or heat lamps mounted on top of their enclosures work well since these semi-arboreal creatures will bask under the heat. Carpet pythons do not require extremely high humidity and keeping the humidity around 50-65 percent is more than adequate. Humidity can be maintained by misting once or twice a day.

Substrates:
Carpet pythons can be kept on a variety of substrates but it would be best to keep them on something that will hold some humidity. I recommend choosing cypress mulch or shredded newspaper, both of which hold humidity well and make cleaning relatively easy.

Breeding:
The most important factor before breeding snakes is making sure that both animals are healthy and of appropriate age and size. To be considered breeding age, carpet pythons should be at least three years old (although males have been bred as young as 18 months old) while some breeders prefer to wait until the female is in her fourth year.

Some breeders will prep their carpet pythons for breeding by “cooling” them for a period of time. Cooling simulates the natural climate change they would experience during winter before the spring breeding season. During the cooling period carpet pythons should experience regular daytime temperatures but heating can be turned off at night to allow for temperatures to drop into the range of 70-80 degrees. During the cooling period it is possible to periodically introduce the male into the female's enclosure. When the male is ready to breed, he will spur the female's back and if she is receptive copulation will typically occur within twenty-four hours.

The couple can then be left together for a few days until they no longer show an interest in each other. If the female has been successfully bred, she will then start to show signs of ovulation and the last third of her body will appear to swell. A few weeks after ovulation, the female will have her pre-lay shed which signals another 3-4 weeks until the eggs are laid. Once the female has shed a nest box should be placed inside her enclosure. A 15 quart plastic container with a large hole cut in the lid and filled with sphagnum moss works well. The female should remain undisturbed while she is laying until she is finished and coils around the eggs.

Removal of the eggs from the female can be tricky as the mother may be protective of her eggs, it is recommended that gloves be worn by the keeper to defend against a bad bite. The eggs should then be placed inside an egg box filled with moist perlite which is then placed inside a ready incubator that is set to maintain temperatures at 87-88 degrees. After approximately 55-60 days of incubation the eggs will be ready to hatch and baby pythons will cut through the eggs with their egg tooth. Once the babies have pipped they will stay within the egg for a couple of days while they finish absorbing their yolk sacs and will eventually leave the egg.

Keeping and breeding carpet pythons can be a very rewarding experience as these animals are highly intelligent and personable. As more information becomes available in the care of this species and with the large amount of subspecies and morphs to work with the popularity of these pythons will only continue to rise.

Common Name: Nile Monitor

Scientific Name: Varanus niloticus

Group: Monitor


Origin and or Range:

Nile Monitor range all over Africa mainly forest areas like Lake Manyara they also swim more than most monitor so their also found on river banks a fully grown Nile monitor can reach up to 6 feet in length.

They have powerful jaws and very sharp claws which they use their sharp claws and power full jaws for climbing/digging & defence they also have a very powerful tail which is also use as defence.

Their claw and teeth are used to tear up their pray items, they also have a strong sense of smell which is used to hunt for pray items such as fish,snail,large insects,frogs.crocodiles eggs,snakes,birds & even small mammals..


Female Nile monitors in the wild use termites mound for nests the termite’s mounds keep a steady temperature & a high humidity. The female Nile would claw her way into the mound in some cases it may take the female Nile several days to complete the nest by to time the female laid her eggs the termites would have repair their mound

Which makes it ideal for retaining a steady temperatures and humidity for the development of the Nile monitors eggs.


Female Nile monitors in captivity dig a deep nesting chamber in moist earth she can lay large clutches more than 15 eggs are normally laid but clutches of 50 have been recorded in the wild

The eggs may take the better part of a year to incubate, the hatchings emerging from their termite mound when the summer rains soften the exterior somewhat.


Vivarium/Caging:

As hatchings Nile monitors will be very nervous of their surroundings so it’s very important to provide plenty of hiding spaces within their enclosures, Hatchings should be started in a 4ft /2ft enclosure so they are not stressed out. Adult Nile monitor should be provided minimum of 8ft/4ft enclosure.



Humidity/temperature/lighting
It very important to reach the right humidity and temperature you should keep your enclosure on the hot side around 90/95 degrees F on the cool side should not go any lower than 70 degrees F with a basking of 120/130 degrees F.

Enclosures should keep the humidity levels around 50/70 per cent. You can acheive this by the substrate you use also with a large water bowl big enough for your Nile to soak in.

Its best to use UVB lighting for you Nile allow it written a lot that it not necessary but I would use a 10 per cent UVB bulb or tube.



Substrate
You can use Eco earth/Orchid and Forest Bark or a mix of play sand and top soil which they will be able to barrow down into it .

Diet
Its not always possible to provide your Nile with it natural diet but as hatching they should be keep on a diet of crickets/roaches but you can also offer boil eggs as a treat (in the wild they would eat crocodiles eggs ) you can also offer rat pup as a treat, (be careful not to overfeed them which could lead to your Nile getting fatty liver disease) also you can give your Nile giant land snails.


As adult Niles you can provide them with large roaches,chicks,rats,mice,snails,eggs,beef,fish. always remember to dust with vitamin's (Calcium with vitamin D)

Description:
Most species are diurnal ground-foraging omnivores, feeding on a wide variety of insects, gastropods, flowers, fruits and berries they are relatively large lizards , light-bodied, short-limbed, broad with a distinct head and dull teeth. As suggested by these common names, a prominent characteristic is a large blue tongue that can be bared as a bluff-warning to potential enemies.(The Merauke and the Indonesian can be very difficult to identify separately)


Vivarium/Caging :
Adult skinks should be kept in a cage that is at least 36 x 18. You should also provide some type of hiding place to help your skink feel more secure. substrates such as cyress mulch, aspen Shavings, Newspaper, Indoor/Outdoor Carpeting can be used (we our self use cyress mulch for our bluey's)

Humidity:
for bedding is bark or some type of mulch. This type of substrate holds moisture very well, allowing a higher humidity.

Shedding Period:
unlike snakes skinks shed in pieces and not one whole shed chunk will normally shed without difficulty so long as the humidity is kept at an optimal level. Dry shed is the result of low humidity and dry skin can cause the loss of toes if it is not removed. .

Temperature/Climate:
Blue tongue skinks love heat and require temperatures under the heat light to range from 90-95 degrees and night time temperatures can range from 75-80 degrees. Proper temperature allows the blue tongue skink to properly digest food and the immune system to function normally. Blue tongue skinks require 10-14 hours a day of UVB light. This light enables the skink to produce vitamin D3. The vitamin D produced by UVB metabolizes the calcium in the lizards’ diet.

Food/Prey:
omnivorous (eating both plant and animal matter) feeding on mice, rats, snails, hard-boiled eggs, crickets, super worms, night crawlers, beef heart, fruits and vegetables. ex: apples, bananas, strawberries, figs, peaches, mango, papaya, cantaloupe, grapes, blackberries, blueberries, collard greens, mustard greens, red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, dandelion greens, hibiscus leaves and flowers, green onions, spinach spinach should be sparingly to much is bad for them , green beans, zucchini, and frozen mixed vegetables with out corn. ill post a toxic food link with this for other to read diet consisting of 60% plant material and 40% animal protein will provide a healthy mix.

Reproduction:
Live birth , All are viviparous, Blue tongue skinks give birth to live young and can have between 1 to 7 but up to 25 babies in rare cases (and depending on species and/or sub-species). The gestation period for blue tongue skinks is 90-150 days. With proper care blue tongue skinks do well in captivity

Summery:
these are very fun and rewarding to have and watch like bearded dragons they can learn who there keepers are and most will come rite up to there owners when food is being offered and will eat right from your hand and will tolerate short periods of handling and inter-actions with there keepers and they enjoy LARGE water dishes to swim and soak in mainly for shed cycles we also recommend a air bubbler too to promote drinking and proper hydration

Merauke and the Kei Island, although actual subspecies, are also sometimes associated under the Indonesian label, especially by people with an untrained eye. You may very likely find a Merauke or a Kei Island in a pet shop being sold as an Indonesian.

Most (not all) Indonesian blue tongued skinks (and Irian Jaya) you see in a pet store are wild caught imports. Private breeders are best. Apart from all that, the Indonesian can come in MANY different colors including green, orange, red, gray and even yellow! Almost all Indonesians have nearly solid black legs.

Compatibility:
make a good beginner pet. They do require specialized lighting however. (as compared to other lizards)

The bearded dragon pogona genus contains seven species,which are as follow Eastern bearded dragon( Pogona barbata) Lawson's dragon (Pogona henrylawsoni) Small-scaled bearded dragon (Pogona microlepidota) Western bearded dragon (Pogona minor) Mitchell's Bearded Dragon (Pogona minor mitchelli) Nullarbor (banded) beaded dragon (Pogona nullarbor) Central (or Inland) Bearded Dragon (Pogona vitticeps) Bearded Dragon Which is a species of agmid lizard. there natral habit are arid,rocky semi-desert regions and dry open woodlands of Australia




They come in many different colours brown,reddish-brown,red,grey,yellow, white, orange,green .

The Central (or Inland) Bearded Dragon (Pogona vitticeps) Eastern bearded dragon Can get up to 2 feet in length the female is narmal smaller than the maleThe Lawson's dragon (Pogona henrylawsoni) Also called Rankin's Dragon, Dumpy Dragon, Dwarf Bearded Dragon,Black Soil Bearded Dragon Which is one of the smaller species 10 inches in length

The Small-scaled bearded dragon (Pogona microlepidota) also know as Kimberley bearded dragon which gets as big as 18 inches in length western bearded dragon is dwarf bearded dragon which get around a foot in length it has a longer tail and legs Nullarbor (banded) beaded dragon these can get up to 14inc in lengthMitchell's Bearded Dragon (Pogona minor mitchelli) can get up to 18inc in length

The bearded dragon is one of the best starter pets being they are very easy to care for They communicate to each other by color displays arm waving and also head bobbing a bearded dragon is not what you call a social reptile but they in the wild they gather in groups in feeding or basking areas

A dominant bearded dragon would demonstrate its superiority by inflating its beard or head bobbing , the challenger would signal a submission by waving one of its forearms in slow circle,s.

Several different head bobbing gesture are used The male would violently bob there heads just before or to signal to a mate Slow motion bowing is used by female as a submission to a male thats she ready to mate The male would only wave to show a submission In the wild the female would dig a shallow nest to lay her eggs she then buries them and they are left unattended they hatch around 60 to 80 day ofter being layed depending on temperature

A female Bearded dragon can lay around 11 to 30 eggs In captivity you would Vermiculite, The Vermiculite should be moist enough that the soil sticks to your fingers but not so wet that water comes out when you squeeze it (ratio of about 4:1 Vermiculite/water). make depression with your thumb for the eggs to rest in. The eggs should not be covered with the vermiculite. The incubator should be in a room with a constant temperature. Incubating temperatures are very important. It should be between 82-86 degrees F. I like to stay on the lower end of that scale. Cooler will just slow the hatch time, hotter will kill the embryosThe humidity within the incubator should be between 60-80% Don't allow condensation on the eggs The average incubation time is 55-75 days. 90 days is also not uncommon

Hatching process.
Hatching process may take 24 to 48 hours ,Do not try to help the hatch-lings out of the eggs because that would probably Kill them . The eggs may begin to deflate (do not confuse this with symptom,s of insufficient humidity). This is a signal that the hatch-lings due to hatch, During this time you may see that the eggs may appear to sweat with small droplets of moisture on the eggs surface .

hatch-ling have a small egg tooth on the tip of their snout and they use this to slice open the egg a small slit will appear then followed by emergence of the hatch-ling nose and head,hatch-ling may rest up to a day with only their heads out .

you must allow the hatch-ling to emerge on their own ,Never pull or force a hatch-ling out of it,s egg .hatch-ling,s may take between 24 to 48 hours to fully emerge out of the egg Babies should remain in the incubator for 24 hours after completely emerging , This will allow time for the hatch-ling to adjust to our atmosphere and it also avoid temperature shock and may stimulate any remaining babies to hatch out.

Most hatch-ling will emerge within a day or two of each over ,in some cases a few days may pass between the hatching from first to last hatch-ling ,just try to be patient, and allow at least a week before assuming that any hatch-ling are dead within the egg.

Sexing
It's very simple to find out if you have a male or a female bearded dragon the males have a larger broader heads the tail are usually thicker at the base and a male will have two bumps on the underside of the base of their tails by the vent..



A female will have smaller head more slender and tapered the female will have one bump or no bumb on the undersite of the tail by the vent.

Diet
Hatch-ling's you must be very careful not to feed to large pray items this could cause impaction and may lead to death So only use very small crickets lucusts and as a treat you may and to give the Hatch-ling' a boast you can offer wax worms as they grow you can up the size of pray

as they reach sub adult start using pray items like roaches mill worms butter worms and even as a treat or to fatten up a female whom just layied a clutch of eggs you can give them pinky mic

A bearded dragon must also have Leaf type vegetation But you must avoid giving the iceberg lettuce you may offer them thing like Romaine Lettuce,Kale, Collard greens, Chicory,Carrots, Squash,Dandelion greens.

they also can be offered some Fruits like Strawberries,Apricots,Mango, Melon, Blackberries, Raspberries, Blueberries,Peaches, Cantelope,Apples,Pears, Grapes. but avoid giving them Tomatoes,Lemons,Oranges or any acidic fruits As a must with every Lizard you must dust all food items with calcium powder every other feed

Vivarium/Enclosure
Hatch ling's should start of with a 2ft or 3ft enclosure then as they grow you would move up to 4ft you can even go as large as a 6ft enclosure for a adult bearded dragon you must only house a female and a male together never add two males as this will result in them fighting which may lead to death.

he enclosure must have a good hiding spots And basking spots for the bearded dragon , you must provide a water dish at the cool side ,its is a fact that most water will come from the pray items also from the veg.. but you can spray water into the bearded dragons mouth but you must be careful not to get the enclosure humidity up to high as they are classed as a desert reptile.

humidity should be keep t around 30% to 50% the less the better you may every so often bath your bearded dragon in warm water to help with shedding or to help with bowel movements or to free any impaction, for the hatch ling's substrate you should use paper Towels. For sub adult or adults you can use Sand, wood chippings, (not bark) news paper, brown parcel paper (rapping Paper) do NOT use cedar shavings, gravel, kitty litter crushed corn cob,or any type of soil ( potting soil ,top soil etc..)

Temperature/lighting
With most reptiles you would need to have a desert 10% UVB tube or bulb which would need changing every 6 months depending on the make of tube or bulb during the day temperature's of your enclosure should be keep t on the hot side around 78-88F on the cool side should be no lower than 70F with a basking of about 95-100F at night you would need drop your temps down to about 70F the temp' should be controlled by a good habistat

The Tiger Salamander is a species of mole salamander. They are the largest species salamander in North America. They can live up to 25 years if kept properly. The largest being the Eastern Tiger Salamander reaching lengths of up to 14 inches but more typically 6-8 inches. There are different species of Tiger Salamanders such as the Barred Tiger Salamander, The California Tiger Salamander, and The Plateau Tiger Salamander.

Their color consist of yellow, black, and gray blotches. They have thick bodies and necks and there legs are very sturdy. There eyes are large and lidded. Adult Tiger Salamanders are rarely seen because they are in deep burrows most of there lives. They Occasionally come out to feed when it has rained and to breed in ponds. Tiger Salamanders Rarely go in water. They however are very good swimmers and breed in water.




Enclosure
Tiger Salamanders should be kept in a minimum of a 10 gallon aquarium. Remember Bigger is better. Storage Boxes are also very good. Just remember to put plenty of holes for ventilation so you wont have mold growing! Make sure you have a big enough water bowl so that they can fully submerge and swim in. Always have a hide or two in your enclosure, That's a must! Tiger Salamander Larvae should be kept in clean and filtered water. They can be kept in any kind of aquarium as long as it is big enough.




Substrate/Setup
Tiger Salamanders need a substrate that they can dig and burrow in. They also need it very moist so the best kind of substrate is the kind that can hold humidity very good. You can use any kind of natural clean dirt or Eco Earth. But what I have found that works the best for me is Sphagnum Moss. Make Sure it is pretty deep too. As I said earlier they must have a large enough water bowl so they can swim in. Also have a few hides big enough so they can fit there whole body in and be comfortable.

Temperature/Humidity
Tiger Salamanders are very tough and adaptive when it comes to temperature and humidity but the best temp is to keep them at 65 - 75 Fahrenheit. Humidity should be over 70% if kept to low Tiger Salamanders will form a cocoon like shell to keep moist.

Diet Now the funnest part when it comes to keeping Tiger Salamanders is feeding them and watching them eat. They are very aggressive eaters and will try anything that comes near there mouth. They even run at you to get there food, Its pretty funny!

Tiger Salamanders will eat pretty much anything. But Earthworms, Crickets, Grasshoppers are the best bugs. Or anything that is soft and wont hurt them. When Your Tiger Salamander is big enough it will surely enjoy a baby mouse. But don't feed mice too much because they can make your salamander Obese and unhealthy. Feed your Tiger Salamanders 2-3 times per week. Handling
Handling Tiger Salamanders is defiantly a bad idea. They are not poisonous but the salt and oil on your hand is very bad for your Salamander's skin. Only handle when your moving them and try to get your hands wet. You will most likely get bit by your Tiger Salamander a few times or more. But Its pretty funny and they don't have teeth but there bites feel like sandpaper and they have little bite pressure.

Hibernation
Tiger Salamanders will go into hibernation in the winter if it does not receive any food and is cool. But your Tiger Salamander will be fine without hibernation.

Larvae Care/Metamorphosis
Larvae are very common in bait shops. You may be able to find them at pet stores also. But most of them are starved and very unhealthy. A lot of them will have missing gills or even limbs from other larvae. You want a larvae that has nice girth to it so no indention in the stomach and make sure there are no open wounds or bruises. Make sure it is swimming very well and has good balance.

It is recommended that one Larvae should have at least 5 gallons. Overcrowding can cause bad growth and stress through aggressive interactions. The enclosure should be as wide and long as possible instead of narrow and tall to ensure the larva has enough floor space. They need to also have a good hide. Housing different size larvae together is a bad idea because they are very cannibalistic.Larval salamanders can be fed on redworms, earthworms, appropriately sized crickets, waxworms, guppies and minnows (not goldfish), and other available properly sized feeders.

Salamander Larvae metamorphism will occur when you start to notice shortening and absorption of the gills, the rounding and thickening of the tail, and the forming of adult coloration. The enclosure now should have a little land spot for it. Either tilting the cage or placing an item such as a flat rock in it. Salamanders digestive track does not change very much and they will most likely take food during metamorphosis. Adult coloration can take weeks to even months to fully develop. Once the salamander has gone through full metamorphism is should be placed in an adult setup.

Breeding/Sexing
Tiger Salamanders are fairly easy to sex. Males Usually will be longer,not always bigger but most of the time longer. Males will have a big bulge where there vent is while females lack the bulge.Breeding Tiger Salamanders is nearly impossible to breed in captivity unless your have a Large outdoor terrarium and a pond, as well as a lot of time.

Tiger Salamanders are very Fun, Easy, and Cheap pets to have. They are very cool and beautiful. One of the best pets you can have in my opinion. Thanks For Reading My Care-sheet!

Lasiodora parahybana a.k.a. Salmon pink birdeating tarantula is a very large species of tarantula one of the largest in the world It rivals the goliath birdeater in size reaching an adult leg span of 10 inches. If it were not for there size and semi aggressive nature they would be the perfect beginner species of tarantula.




Origin:
These tarantulas originate from the tropical rainforests of Brazil.

Caging:
The spiderlings can be kept in a deli cup or small vile, and as they grow so must the cage as with any animal. They will eventually require a 20 gallon long or similar size enclosure. And please house then individually. I also use some kind of hide like a piece of cork bark and i also have a little fake tree in the cage also just for decor. For a substrate you can use fertilizer and pestaside free topsoil or ground coconut husk.

Temperature and humidity:
You will want to keep these big beasts warm around 80-85 degrees, to achieve these temps you can either put them in a warn thermostat controlled room or use an under tank heater I would shy away from overhead lights being that they will dry things up to quickly and tarantulas naturally shy away from bright lights. And being that they are from rainforests you will want to keep there humidity up in the 80 percent range you can achieve this by misting about every three to four days. Remember you want it humid not swampy.

Feeding:
They will accept pretty much any live bug that you can find. They very rarely don't take a meal unless they are getting ready for a molt. And you can either keep a small dish of fresh water in the cage at all times after the legspan reaches 2 inches. I rely on the misting to keep them hydrated they will drink the droplets of water.

Handling and temperment:
Handling any large tarantula is not advisable simply for the fact that if they get spooked and you drop it, it will most likely die from the fall. I would't say this is an overly aggressive species they just aren't as placid as some of your beginner species. If you can get over the thought of possibly getting nailed by a 10 inch spider and possibly needing stitches then by all means go for it. Growth: This is a very fast growing species of tarantula.

Natural history:
Pandinus imperator is one of the largest scorpion species in the world growing to around 6-8 inches in total length. They come from the tropical forests of western Africa. Where they spend most of there day hiding under the moist leaf litter near human development. Most of the animals you find in the U.S. pet trade are now captive bred though some are imported from scorpion "ranches" in Togo and Benin. Pandinus imperator is a Cities 2 animal due to large collection and exportation in the 90's.




Housing:
Housing these scorpions in a decent sized kritter keeper is fine. Most people house adults in a 10 gallon aquarium. 20 gallon aquarium for a group. The most important part of the enclosure in my opinion is a tight fitting lid. Some small scorpions will climb the thin bead of aquarium sealant in the corners of the aquarium.

Substrate:
What I have found works best as a substrate for these scorpions is coconut husk fiber. It hold humidity very well which is important for this species. But you can also use a fertilizer free top soil and sand mixture. About 4-8 inches works best as this species enjoys burrowing.

Temperature and humidity:
Two very important aspects of your scorpions health and well being. Temperatures should range between 75-85 degrees. Scorpions can survive cooler temperatures but it is not safe to keep them for long periods of time below this. *Note: Hot temperatures are more dangerous to scorpions than cooler temperatures. This species comes from a humid part of Africa so in there cages it should be around 85% at all times. You can achieve this by misting them every other day and by keeping a wide mouthed water dish in the enclosure in with them at all times.

Feeding:
Most scorpions are opportunistic predators and these ones are no different. They will feed on crickets, roaches, mealworms, and superworms. I have found that most of them prefer certain prey items so try different ones and see which your scorpion enjoys best.

Cage decor:
Most scorpions will just destroy and dig up any kind of plants so I wouldn't use them but to each there own if you don't mind fixing them all the time. The only decor I will use is hides. I prefer half clay flower pots buried a little bit in the substrate. Growth and Venom:
This species is a fast growing species that usually grows up to around 6-8 inches. The venom on a scale of 1-10 is rated a 1 they are usually compared to that of a bee sting.

Curved horn baboon tarantula
Natural history:
Ceratogyrus bechuanicus is from Botswana Africa. It is an aggressive burrowing species that max out at about 5 to 6 inches




Housing:
The housing for this species is rather simple. First off you will need a nice tall enclosure with some air holes in the lid, screw on lids are preferred. You will want to fill the enclosure almost full just leave enough space under the lid so the tarantula can move around unrestricted should it decide to surface. You can use vials for small specimens and tall deli cups for bigger ones.

Substrate:
For substrate I feel that a mixture of coconut husk fiber with a little moss mixed in works best. I allows the tarantula an easy substrate to dig in and holds humidity well. Temperature and humidity:
With this species you will want to keep the temps between 75 and 80 degrees. As far as humidity goes you will want to keep it around 65% and 70%.

Feeding:
This tarantula eats all your normal feeder insect i.e. crickets, roaches, mealworms, and superworms. All you will need to do is drop the food item near the opening of the burrow and the tarantula will tackle the food item if it is hungry.water.

Cage decor:
I wouldn't use any decor for this species. It wont be used as this species rarely leaves its burrow

Growth:
This species reaches 5 to 6 inches as an adult. They seem to grow at a medium pas.

Tanzanian Giant Tail-less Whip Scorpion
Natural history:
This species comes from Tanzania and Kenya. They are a harmless species of arachnid they have no fangs or stinger also they lack any kind of venom. And they only grow to an adult size of about 8 inches. They are very skittish and don't usually bite so they can be handled just remember they are fast and skittish.




Housing:
I keep mine in a deli cup type of container with a screw on lid and air holes. You will want to increase the container size accordingly as they grow.

Substrate:
Nothing works better in my opinion than a layer of coconut husk fiber on the bottom and then but some pieces of moss over that. The moss should only cover about half of the bottom. I use the moss as a moisture thing I only mist the moss. Temperature and humidity:
You will want to keep this species at around 80-85 degrees. With about 80% humidity, Just mist the moss every couple of days and you should be fine

Feeding:
These babies will eat pretty much anything you put in front of them. But they are very picky about there prey size, more so than any other invertebrate I have ever kept. So you will want to start babies on pin head or small crickets and small roaches and increase prey size as the animal grows. You want to feed them about 2-3 pin head crickets about twice a week.

Cage decor:
You will want to keep verticle pieces of cork bark, I use pieces of broken flower pot. They are arboreal so things to climb on are more important to this species than floor s Growth:
This species grows at a medium pace and they reach 8 inches as adults

Written by Justin on Wed May 11, 2011
Orange Baboon Tarantula
Natural history:
This is a very fast and defensive species that comes from Kenya and Mombasa Africa. Where they live in there silk tunnels under ground. That grows to about 4-5 inches as an adult




Housing:
I keep mine in a old plastic pretzel container with a screw on lid. But a 5 gallon aquarium would work great for this species also. I have also heard that this species can be kept communally if you would like to goes this route. Just remember with more specimens means you will need more space. And make sure you have a tight fitting lid.

Substrate:
I keep this species on about 5 inches of coconut husk fiber and mix in a little peat moss to help with humidity a bit. Temperature and humidity:
You will want to keep this species in around the 70-85 degree mark as far a temps go. This species is really good at adapting to different humidity levels so humidity should be kept between 40% - 70% they seem to enjoy it more on the drier side. A open water dish filled with water will add to your humidity quite well and you shouldn't need much more than that. You can mist them every once and a while if you wish.

Feeding:
This tarantula will take all of the normal feeder insect fair with no problem.

Cage decor:
Cage decor is pretty much up to the keeper. I use a piece of cork bark and it has webbed everything as well as dug itself a little burrow to retreat to when it wants to. But just remember any decor you use will most likely be webbed like crazy. Growth:
This species grows at a medium rate of growth and gets to be around 5-6 inches as an adult.

rusty thick tail scorpion
Natural history:
This species is from savannah-like areas in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Cameroon, and Congo(Zaire) Africa. It can be found under leaf litter, under rocks, or under bark. Although it does occur in drier habitats it need some for of humidity to survive. This species occurs in two natural color morphs regular and chocolate. The regular color phase starts out as a bright orange and fades into a duller orange as it ages. The chocolate phase is just a regular brown scorpion




Housing:
You can keep adults in a 10-20 gallon aquarium. I keep mine in plastic containers with air holes melted in the lid. This species can be kept communally as adults, young of this species is very cannibalistic.

Substrate:
I keep this species on 2-3 inches of coconut husk fiber with a little moss in one of the corners to help aid in humidity. Depth of the substrate doesn't have to be deep for this species as they don't do a lot of digging.

Temperature and Humidity:
This species can be kept comfortably between 75-85 degrees. And around 60-75% humidity.

Feeding:
This species will take any of the normal feeder insect fair. They are also really fun to watch eat because they have no problem with taking on prey larger than themselves. And they sting it repeatedly until its dead and then consumes its food.

Cage decor:
As far as cage decor goes you will need to keep some sort of vertical surface in the enclosure it does good for there molting process. They enjoy climbing they will also use hides to hide under when they don't want to be seen or bothered.

Growth:
This species grows at a medium pace to an adult size of about 4 inches. On a scale of 1-10 there venom is rated a 2 slightly stronger than a Pandinus imperator. But the sting hurts like hell or so I've heard.

Chilean rose tarantula
Natural history:
This species is native to the scrub lands of Chile, Bolivia, and Argentina. Thise species comes in some different colors, ranging from dark brown/grey to a bright/dull red with pink setae. And a brown colored carapace with a range of pink frosted setae. They also live in shallow burrows in there native land.




Housing:
I keep mine in a sterilite box a little bit bigger than a standard shoe box with air holes melted in it using a soldering iron.

Substrate:
I use a slight mix or coconut husk fiber mixed with peat moss, about 2-3 inches deep. Temperature and humidity:
You can keep this species around 75-85 degrees without a problem. You will want to keep the humidity around 75%.

Feeding:
They will usually accept all the normal feeder insect fair. But from my experience they prefer crickets or cockroaches. Feed according to size of your tarantula.

Cage decor:
Cage decor for this species is really simple. All you really need is a nice hide made from a flower pot or whatever you have around that your tarantula can fit in. And the second this you will need is a water dish. *Note: I wouldn't use a water dish for slings, just mist the sides of the enclosure and they should drink it from there.

Growth:
This species is a really slow grower in the tarantula world. But after it gets to adult it will be around 4-5 inches.

florida bark scorpion
Natural history:
This species is native to Florida and the Caribbean, it is found in tropical forests under rocks and bark. This species has been introduced to many other countries such as Africa and South America. In those areas it also lives within houses, under debris, and under wood piles.




Housing:
A minimum cage for adults is a 3 gallon tank. I keep my little ones in a small deli cup type of enclosure with a screw on lid. Vertical space seems to be more important than floor space with this species. This species can be kept communally with no problem as long as there is plenty of hiding places and food.

Substrate:
You will need about 3 inches of substrate. I prefer to use coconut husk fiber. Temperature and Humidity: This species can be kept between 80-90 degrees. And keep them at 75% humidity.

Feeding:
This species will take all of the normal feeder insect fair. They are really voracious eaters.

Cage decor:
As far as cage decor goes you will need some vertical surfaces for this species to climb on. Such as cork bark or I use broken flower pot pieces.

Growth:
This species grows at a medium rate of speed and it reaches an adult size of around 4 inches. The sting is said to be very painful. If you get this species from Florida one a 1-10 scale the venom is rated a 2. But if you get it from the Caribbean or Latin America the venom is supposedly stronger.
