Crocs are kinda like snakes. If they eat something big they won't have to eat for a long time.

the amount of fucks a crocodile gives is related to how long it has been since it's eaten
that croc probably just ate, so it probably has absolutely zero fucks to give

This thread is dedicated to all animals of the reptilia and amphibia families. Topics include, but are not limited to: geckos, snakes of all kinds, frogs, salamanders, newts, turtles, tortoises, and much more. Before asking a question, do a search on the internet to see if it has been answered
Classifieds for finding breeders and products:

Most forums will have a "for sale" section on them, so look for that, especially if you have a specific herp you want. Craigslist can also be a good source for cheap aquariums, and make sure to check for any reptile expos that occur in your area.

When asking a question, make sure to include these details:
>Type and size of animal
>Enclosure dimensions
>Humidity and temperature
>Type of substrate
>The decor you use

pretty much all animals produce some kind of odor, its just on you to keep up with cleaning
But as far as beardies go just clean the poop and urates out and dont let food stay in there long enough to rot (If you are going to use crickets as a staple for its live food they definitely smell when in large numbers and smell even wose when they die)

>the pattern threw me off.
Same. Some of them looked sort of close but not quite right. The shape of their head goes against everything I have learned about venomous snakes in the US. I didn't learn the venomous ones by the shape of their head, mind you, but they all have a distinct shape.

Dearest /an/,

Maybe this topic is more appropriate for the Aquairum general, but regardless: do anyone of you fine Anons have any experience making self-contained environments or 'ecospheres' within jars? I've been watching tons of Life in Jars vids on Youtube and.. I've got a creek and I've got a fairly large pickle jar, so it sounds like an interesting do-able little side project.

Advice? Tips? Reading or further watching material?
If I'm going to play GOD, I'd rather the denizens of my world not all suffocate, starve, or otherwise die in a barren glass-framed world.

Why? What is with all the karens in society taking over and turning shit into the dark ages? Pet foods evolve over time to be less dangerous and more healthy. There is literally no good reason to feed cats raw meat. You're just unnecessarily risking disease because you saw a facebook post.

Westerners switched to dry and canned food for pets during ww2. The food didnt perish as easy, plus families could have the fresh food to themselves that way.

Its stuck around out of convenience.
Go release a cat/dog into the wild, if they form a grain farming community and build factory that proccesses kibble then I would hold my hands up and say that foods natural and best for them.

Oh, horticultural-grade charcoal is usually the culture medium for raising springtails. I got mine (temperate) in a jar full of wet charcoal chunks with about an inch of water in the bottom. Add food and they'll keep going just fine. They feed on molds and so they're good for keeping around as clean-up for just about any enclosure that's kept moderately damp.

I figured, unfortunately. I'm glad they're protected so they won't be bothered in their native habitat, but I also wish there was a captive population in the trade so that anyone who wants a puppy-sized cricket can have one in their home.

This photo is far from stellar but the second I moved the stick this fellow was on, s/he took off running around. They don't really have much in the way of a head but you can see the antennae at least. After they have time to properly settle in and start to come out on their own I'll probably get some actually decent photos with the macro lens instead of whatever I could snap in the heat of the moment.

They're a very fun, very little species. I hope they propogate well and I wind up with tons of them.
