Re: Please ID Spider

I once read that the true black widow is only found from Capetown northwards along the west coast, and that the black ones we do find elsewhere is just a really dark brown. don't know Latin names for spiders, but I'd say brown button or false button.

Re: Mobile APP - Growth Tracker

I could probably build something like that in a spreadsheet on excel, but not sure if your mobile would work that well to open it. PM me youremail addy if you're interested and I'll see what I can do, no charge.

Re: Etiquette, Legalities and Science

It's only sad that FS has almost no support in this regard. A few years ago when applying for a permit to keep indigenous geckos the response I got was, "I'm not making a two hour drive to inspect a few geckos", just go ahead and keep them. Any pointers on where or whom to apply to fora ca...

So this means technically a private individual is not allowed to remove, say a snake, from a neighbor's house?

Re: New Kenyan Sand Boa Issues

For me normal children's play sand works great and in my experience the prefer belly heat to heat from above. I have two Exo-terra snake caves, the ones with solid bottoms. During shed cycles I just keep the sand in one of the two moist and they shed beautifully.
