    New Pro-Line Cage Builds for Pythons

    Hi all,


    I wanted to share some photos of one of the projects I've been working on this summer. The kids needed some home upgrades and I'm a big fan of naturalistic displays when possible. I...

    Re: Anti-Amphibian Legislation in US

    They will definitely try. Probably most frogs, too. Anti-pet groups like the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) will do everything they can do ban herps as pets in general. The snake...

    Anti-Amphibian Legislation in US

    All - I have posted these warnings in the past when seeking aid to oppose Anti-Snake legislation. Although Salamanders are of interest here, it is important to stay in the loop and take action when...

    Outdoor Python Pics

    Hi all,

    First, I apologize for my absence on the forum lately. I'm trying to slowly get back into the swing of things, but my research is consuming a lot of time. I've had to temporarily eliminate...
  7. Re: Question: Parasitic Larvae & Protozoa and Disinfecting/Sanitizing?

    I think the product Cruncy Frog posted should be good. Quaternary ammonia is my favorite as well. Much less corrosive than other cleaners and does a good job of eradicating many pathogens. We use...

    Re: Giant Cockroaches

    I have a few large-ish species... Most I would consider on the smaller to mid-range end.

    Here's one of my Peppered Roaches (A. tesselata). The same as Matthew mentioned earlier:...
  10. Re: Coccidistat, Crickets, Anti-inflammatories, Etc...

    I wouldn't feed anything medicated, personally. The Coccidiostats in the medicated poultry diet are concentrated in such a way to be an effective treatment for chickens. As a result, the feed might...

    Re: Live locusts for sale in US

    What you describe sounds a lot like the desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria), but it might be another species. They are commonly cultured in other parts of the world, but as Matthew said they are...

    Re: The American Cockroach as a feeder???

    You could probably order lab-reared or captive cultured American Roaches... They would be just fine to feed. Roaches seem to have little variation in nutritional content, even from vastly diverged...

    Re: I love bugs...

    You wouldn't be able to culture bee flies, unfortunately. The larvae are parasitoids of other insects, that is, they are parasites that ultimately kill their host. You'd need to rear the specific...

    I love bugs, too. Especially insects =) And isopods are super cute!

    To culture: I enjoy culturing cockroaches like Matthew. I've thinned the collection down to 6 species. Always enjoyed breeding...

    Re: avocado for roaches

    Roaches will be fine with it, but the frog's sake, I'd err on the side of caution and say no.

    My gut feeling says that it would be fine... But due to the potential toxicity of avocados to birds, I...

    1) Are you positive they are fruit flies, and not phorid flies? The latter are usually called 'scuttle flies' because they usually scurry around quite a bit before taking flight. Fruit flies won't...
