    ENDANGERED SILVER BACK KILLED, WHO'S AT FAULT

    Opening up Facebook currently is like being slapped in the face by distasteful Harambe memes and tons of social networkers who have suddenly obtained zoology degrees. The mother is at fault and should rightly be incarcerated and prosecuted for negligence. People go to jail for child abuse for...

    Custom Prosthetic Shell

    From my understanding most UV absorption occurs in the skin of reptiles. I would be more concerned with how the prosthetic shell would affect temperature regulation.

    POST SALE RESPONSIBILITY

    I think anyone selling live animals has a moral obligation to that animals safety and well-being, but this is more pre-sale than post-sale. When I sell any animal, I evaluate whoever is contacting me. If I feel they won't make a suitable home for any living animal (plenty of these), I turn them...

    Why not breed a mini?

    Unless you focus on a species that has an exceptionally quick reproduction rate (new generations within 2 years) it wouldn't just be a multi-generational commitment of the tortoise, it would be a multigenerational commitment for an entire family. If you were attempting to produce a mini of a...

    Multiple flaws with the "For Sale" forums

    The most recent post I made in the for sale section was locked allowing no further replies. Even I, the OP, am unable to reply to my own thread. Since I am unable to even edit it, this has serious complications in updating quantity. In my most recent thread, many of the animals are already sold...

    Easy, No tools. No cutting pen!

    I might have to look into this stuff...Never seen it before. Not lacking in construction skill but it would be seriously convenient for temporary pens that you can just disassemble and store afterwards.

    Anything Different Between Torts That Hibernate And

    I assume you are referring to the fact that during hibernation they wouldn't receive UVB, and wondering how they can go on like this and come out of it without negative affects to their health? No expert here, but I'd chalk it up to the fact that they are functioning at a much slower metabolic...

    Anti-Pick Up Lines.
