Add the electronic ballast to the inside and the snake likes the heat. Will check on the make and model and let you know Ryuu, over the long weekend...

Re: new legislation on invasive species

If we thought that the reptile industry got the short end of the stick check out the pigeon farmers / racers. Pigeons got banned on the 1st of August. This means that the SPCA must enforce / report any activity of this sport. It would appear that the role players did not take an active approach to t...

Re: Pet Medical Aid

The last time I enquired about medical insurance for pets they only covered cats & dogs. But the catch was no routine medical checks and no injections. Only accidental injury was covered, like your dog got hit by a car in the street or your dog was attacked by another dog. Only then will they co...
