Gears Keep Turning

1/61 »

My reptile and photography blog. Mostly reptiles though.
I am female, 22 years old, and have an addiction to reptiles and video games.

Added more substrate to Kryll’s kritter keeper and it was very slightly damp but she wants nothing to do with it until it dries xD She’s sitting on her cork bark and is so grumpy

faunprints Ask me stuff:
Hi there! May I ask where you purchased Myrrah from? I'm looking into buying a tarantula in the upcoming weeks and I'm trying to research quality places to buy from :)

I actually bought her from a reptile store in Denver. They really hike up their prices though.

Online places that are good to buy from:

Honestly haven’t bought from Ken yet, but my P. regalis and OBT are from netbug and my GBB is from Jamie :3 highly recommend both of them.

Jeremy being Jeremy. He’s such a food whore. He jumped out of the cage twice while I was gone and my mom had to catch him.

man. I am GOING to get to the bottom of why Tiberius is not acting the way a beardie should. Her diet is right, so are her temps/uvb, she gets plenty of insects. Just don’t know why she’s always dark and lethargic :/

Thinking the vets didn’t do a proper fecal test the last time. Going to read up and hopefully be able to use a microscope and maybe attempt one myself.

Every time I see an enormous T. blondi I just think “… how is that real” and then I think how cool it would be to own one but then realize my parents would throw me out of the house if I came home with a GIGANTIC spider

THIS is why I am switching to aquarium sealant. GE Silicon II is crap now and it’s making me angry. Comes RIGHT off plastic and glass. It holds for a little bit but this cage is not even three months old and the seal came right off. The door came right off too while I was gone and I had to ask mom to make a poster board door with duct tape.

Silicon II used to actually work

ugghghghgsjhdkjsdhdadflkshfads

going to have to spend like, an hour or two getting it all off, recutting everything, making a new door, re sealing everything, and waiting for it to cure 100% before putting Myrrah back in. But I can’t do that for another 4 days or so since she just molted.

I lied about going to bed have some Tarantula iphone photos.

Hoffman the P. regalis is HUGE after his molt. Myrrah Molted.

Kryll is settling in and had her first roach. I’ll either add more eco earth to that current cage or set her up with a 10g in a few days. I think she might be a bit small for a 10g right now though.

Myrrah’s cage door came completely off and the bottom is coming off as well. I have a piece of poster board duct taped to the front of the cage right now. I can’t bother her for a few more days though since she just molted. NEVER USE GE SILICON II. IT DOES NOT HOLD WORTH SHIT ANYMORE. Prepare to have your animals escape or get injured if you use it! The most it should be used for is maybe a clear brushed coat over something you painted. Do NOT use it to hold up decorations, ledges, or for cage doors, for the safety of your animals. I’m going to be trying DAP 100% silicon or I’ll buy some aquarium sealant tomorrow.

I’m home, everyone is alive and well. Myrrah molted, Kaylee shed, and looks like Jacinto is going to molt soon. Kryll ate her first roach, she kept touching it with her feet, but was clearly interested but it’d run away before she could decide to eat it so I had to crunch its head and she finally ate it. Baird and Hoffman ate, Hoffman is HUGE wow almost as big as Skorge! Skorge still won’t take food :/

Artyom is a little hoggie pile and Worm is getting bigger every shed.

Mice ate their babies again little shits. Pretty sure it was the male I had. Culled him and I’m going to get a new male tomorrow.

WHAT IS ALL THIS WHITE BULLSHIT. I DON’T WANT SNOW. JUNCTION WAS GREEN AND HAPPY AND WARM AND FLOWERS EVERYWHERE

NOT. THIS. [angry gesture outside at the snow]

I’ll take some photos of everyone tomorrow <3

Saw a homeless lady with 3 pit bulls. Bought her some dog food, sunscreen, and food for her and talked with her for half an hour. Super nice lady. Sweet dogs, she rescued all of them and almost all her resources go to them.
I feel good today
It’s so odd to me to see a lot of homeless. Laramie has almost no homeless so it’s kind of a shock for me to see so many here in Junction.
