This blog follows Pretzel, the Western Hognose, as he journeys through life traversing treacherous fluffy blankets, burrowing deep into cavernous pockets, and climbing towering branches! Read More...

A desperate (and somewhat twisty) escape from the stinky noodle time-out box!
This is Pretzel in his “stinky noodle time-out box” which we use to contain a stinky noodle after he makes a stinky poop.
(He doesn’t like it when the lid comes off, which is why he’s looking so put out.)
The silly doof moved all of his substrate away from the edge of his tank and then attempted to burrow in what was left…  Well done, Pretzel.  You are truly the master of camouflage.
(Sorry for awful quality, the only camera to hand was on my tablet.)
Pretzel’s new viv is very nearly ready for him to move into!

After much kerfuffle, my dad kindly put together Pretzel’s new house today!  All that remains now is to buy some aquarium silicone to seal it, and a new heat mat to fit in the heat mat holder, so hopefully it should be completely ready by the end of the week!  

It’s considerably taller than expected, but at least he can finally make use of all the tank furniture that is too big for his current tank (poor, poor, forgotten Skully).  And I intend to buy a load of decorations over the coming months - maybe I’ll make a snake wishlist to work through!

But yes, very happy this is finally happening as Pretzel can be quite active, and although he hasn’t completely outgrown his current tank I know he’ll appreciate the extra space.

I’ll take some pictures of his new viv later when it’s in place!


Let’s play “What does google think your animal looks like?”
I also like to think of this game as “What is google smoking?”
The game is simple! Pick your favourite animal’s photo, set up a google image search ( press the camera, either upload an image or paste the url of the image if you have it uploaded somewhere and select ‘visually similar images’)
Pick your favourite/the closest example from the first page and reblog this with both photos attached.
Anyone can play and it doesn’t have to be a reptile!
Google thinks our blue tongue skink Artemis looks like…

Oh my gosh, this is an excellent idea that I cannot resist…

Google thinks Pretzel looks like…

A leopard print bathrobe!
(Google also thinks he resembles an anime girl, but then it’s no secret that Pretzel is kawaii as heck.)
