    Eggs? Parasites? Help?

    Heya! I have a quick wee question; I've found little white things in clumps on the sides of my GGB's enclosure. I would write them off as eggs if it wasn't for the fact that my GGB is a juvenile and they're not in an eggsac. If someone could help me identify what I'm looking at, I'd be super...

    Hello, I have a mature male Salmon Pink, he’s been with me for a while now and he’s my first T. He had his ultimate molt a little while ago now, I would say 3 months, maybe. And I’ve noticed he barely eats, which is normal as I understand male T’s stop or slow down eating after maturity...
