    A little problem with Rover

    Hey all. So I've been noticing that Rover doesnt eat the food *by itself*. What I mean is that Rover rarely ever goes towards the food bowl and start eating, it's not due to its lack of appetite, as I anticipated, as when I put it near the food bowl, it starts devouring all the food in the food...

    Sigh... Human psychology, a thing that is simple yet complicated at the same time.

    Spider in enclosure?

    Hey all, it's been a long time since I last posted. So anyway, I just noticed some spider webbing in a corner of the enclosure. I'm not sure whether I should address it or not. I think the reason it decides to settle in the enclosure is due to the upcoming winter and there are fruit flies in the...

    But is it normal for it to pass out "liquid" urates?

    What in the world is this?!

    This fluid just came out of Rover. I have no idea what this is. Theres no way this is semen as Rover is only a year old. Could this be liquid urate or something? I'm really concerned. Any idea what this actually is?

    Haven't pooped for 4 days

    Ok... so Rover finally pooped in the soak today, and man... that's a lot of manure he released out. I forgot to take a picture but I can tell you that the manure almost filled the water surface in the container that is 8 times of Rover's size, talking about absurdity. So he's been holding in the...

    Haven't pooped for 4 days

    Is it somehow related to the time it is soaked. I usually dont come back home until its 5 in the afternoon, and it's usually asleep as this time.

    Haven't pooped for 4 days

    Rover haven't pooper for 4 days straight. I dial it in warm water of about 30c everyday for at least an hour. Today I even soak it for 2 hours, but no poop came out. I'm worried. Is there something I can give it to eat to improve this situation? Or anything else? Thanks in advance.

    The Repile Museum in HK

    I am at Osaka for a trip and visited their reptile (and amphibian) museum there. Here are some pics. Do you think it has better conditions for the animals than those in hk reptile museum? (The last pic is pancake torts)
