Re: The Fall of the Online Reptile Forum?

The reason less people, including myself are using this forum is because it's stuck in 2007. I have asked numerous times that the admin install the Tapatalk plugin, so that this forum can go mobile. Installing Tapatalk is free for the forum owner and I see NO reason not to do it, unless you want you...

Re: Install Tapatalk plugin please

Still no Tapatalk support? :( Feels like 2007 here, because it's the only forum I know that is not on Tapatalk.

Good luck surviving the mobile age without mobile support.

Re: Treatment for cut on ball python

The ball python shed this morning, so here is my final update photo. It's been just over 3 months since the injury and I think in another year it will be almost impossible to notice the scar.

Re: Treatment for cut on ball python

Next week it will be 3 months since the ball python was cut, but I decided to remove the sutures today because I want the next shed (estimated 1-2 weeks away) to be without anything in the way. Here is a picture I've taken and it looks pretty good. This is a very closeup photo and from a distance it...

Re: 3G Routers and internet access

I may have a Linksys WRT54G3G and Huawei PCMCIA 3G modem that I can give you. I will look for it tonight and check if it's still working. I think I might have removed the pigtail, but I'll check and make sure.

Re: 3G Routers and internet access

I have quite allot of experience with 3G routers and the best possible option you can go for is building your own with a Mikrotik 411UAHR router board + Sierra Wireless MC8705 LTE modem. Mine uses 5x antennas, 3x for WiFi (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) and 2x for 3G and it's incredibly reliable. If you don't min...

Re: Bull frogs and permits?

Mr Venom: You have a point and I guess there is no easy solution to the many things causing the wild Bull frog numbers to decline. Maybe the requirement for a permits is not a bad thing, but if it was easier to obtain a permit I'm sure more people like us will keep them and also breed them in captiv...

Re: Bull frogs and permits?

I really think it's pointless to require permits for keeping bull frogs. I understand that they need protection, but protect them where they need it and the pet trade is of very little threat to these guys. It breaks my heart to see the thousands killed on roads in Viljoenskoon after every rainstorm...

Re: Bull frogs and permits?

Poor little obese bull frog. I'm sure it's illegal to keep these without permit, but have you seen the thousands ending up as road kill or the locals making soup from them. A couple in captivity is not nearly as destructive to the wild population as the above mentioned problems. Don't report the guy...

Re: Difference ways of herping

Souds good. So there may be some hoper for the natures and for the animals. All wildlife in Africa is at risk and even most nature reserves are not doing a very good job at protecting their animals. Especially rhinos are targeted and they will be extinct soon. I live on a farm in SA and many specie...

Re: Difference ways of herping

I think you are one of those foreigners that think everyone in Africa lives in a place that looks like this: http://www.colinpatersonjones.co.za/gallery3/var/albums/120911CPJed-2771.jpg In reality Africa looks like this, so there is not much left for us to construct vivariums with: http://allysonsco...

Re: Treatment for cut on ball python

Huge congrats, and well done! Did you ever track down those antibiotics, or did you skip them in the end? Just curious for future reference. I only managed to get some Baytril from a vet 80km away and she only sold me enough for one injection. A full vial is pretty expensive and very few vets in my...
