  1. Re: A forum branch specifically for "emergency care"

    I never said I was upset. That wasn't something I forgot to include. That was because I wasn't.

    We were discussing things. And yes, I ended it by pointing out that you and I could go around...
  2. Re: A forum branch specifically for "emergency care"

    I'm aware they'd have to set it up that way, that's what I described above.

    Not sure how that will be splitting folk off in a general sense, obviously it needs to in a specific way, as it's a...

    Re: Tiny white bugs in soil

    I am under the impression that springtails prefer moist environments? This enclosure is rather dry now.

    Also that if you spray springtails they will spring. I tried that test and they didn't, the...
  5. A forum branch specifically for "emergency care"

    That is I'm requesting a set of sub forums where people can specifically post asking for help with sick or injured herps. That way such posts don't get lost in the shuffle as it were and folk...

    Re: caring for a toad....Help!

    Ugh. I see this was posted 2weeks ago. Is your toad still alive? If so how is he doing and did you get any help? This might be something for a vet to take a look at

    Re: Injured Toad - how can I care for it?

    In this case the link provided above is great, but also for a case like this photos would be really helpful so that folk can help you identify Oswald and actually see the injury

    Tiny white bugs in soil

    So, this morning I noticed tiny white bugs swarming a dead cricket in Lydia's old house, which has become her dining room, essentially. They're the shape of a grain of rice but incredibly smaller.

  10. Re: Strange substance/ growth on Pac-Man frog?

    Very agreed on the vet, that is going to require them to properly identify and treat. It looks like a freaking larva in the photos, but it could be any number of things.

    Re: Plant ID please

    It wasn't labelled at the garden shop? I don't recognise it personally, but I imagine your best bet is to go back to them. They'd need to know what it is when they purchased it for resale. There's a...

    Re: Why did my toad die?

    Stress could definitely have been a factor, but could you provide more information about their set up and behaviour?

    That is, seemed fine doesn't tell us much.

    Do they only get fruit flies?...
