 PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

Welcome


There is a TON of information on this website regarding uromastyx.

Please utilize the ‘search’ command at the top of the forum for commonly asked questions and answers before posting.

You can search through current posts as well as archive posts going back several years. Use a keyword and try several searches. For example, if you are wondering about the white buildup on your uromastyx nose, type in words such as ‘white buildup’ and search the active uromastyx forum. You will see multiple posts that address this issue. If you would like additional reading, do the same thing under the uromastyx ‘archives’. If you wish even further reading on the subject, use different keywords e.g. white nose ect.

If you cannot find the information you are looking for, do not understand or have questions about the things you are reading, or see conflicting information and would like additional opinions on the subject, then start a thread with a title that accurately describes your situation. Example: “New uromastyx hasn’t eaten for 10 days”

When posting about a possible health and/or behavioral concern such as a decrease or lack of appetite, an animal that hides or basks a lot, a uromastyx that is losing weight or is thin, injuries, skin conditions..... try to include as many of the following answers as possible in your post:

1) How long have you owned the animal

2) Dimensions of the enclosure you are using. Measure it- do not guess or give gallon size

3) Species (if known), length, and weight of the animal

4) Listing of all animals kept in the enclosure referred to in the post

5) Basking spot temperature and how that temperature was measured

6) Temperature throughout the rest of the enclosure (warm and cool areas) and how these temperatures were measured e.g. digital thermometer, stick on dial thermometer. Provide the nighttime temperatures as well.

7) Acknowledge whether you are using a UVB bulb and if so, the brand, age of bulb, and distance from the bulb to the uromastyx

8) Diet items being fed and how often each item is fed

9) List of the supplements being used, how much is used, and how often the supplement is used

10) Type of substrate (cage bottom material). If this is sand, state whether it is calcium sand

11) Describe your animal’s daily routine. When it exits the hide, when it retreats for the night, how long it is usually out throughout the day, is it active during this time, how much time does it spend sitting on the basking spot….

12) Describe your animal’s appetite.

13) Describe any unusual behaviors you are seeing or any recent changes in behavior. Also note whether any recent modifications have been made to this animal’s environment. e.g new enclosure, move to another room, new heat bulb....

14) Describe how often this animal is handled and the type of handling.

15) State whether the animal has been to a vet, when that was, and whether the animal was diagnosed with a medical condition. Also state whether the uromastyx has ever had a fecal check. If so states when the fecal check was done, what was found, and if medication was prescribed.

Photos of the animal and/or issue can be extremely helpful.

The more questions that you provide answers to, the quicker and more accurate the return answers/replies will be.

1) How long have you owned the animal
Almost A Year With Pheobes And About 6 Months With Bowzer II
2) Dimensions of the enclosure you are using. Measure it- do not guess or give gallon size
36X12X15 (They Are Out Very Often Running Around The Living room
3) Species (if known), length, and weight of the animal
Mali Uro
4) Listing of all animals kept in the enclosure referred to in the post
2 Mali Uros
5) Basking spot temperature and how that temperature was measured
90-100 Degrees Measured With An Exoterra Thermometer
6) Temperature throughout the rest of the enclosure (warm and cool areas) and how these temperatures were measured e.g. digital thermometer, stick on dial thermometer. Provide the nighttime temperatures as well.
Around 70-80 Day/Night
7) Acknowledge whether you are using a UVB bulb and if so, the brand, age of bulb, and distance from the bulb to the uromastyx
I’m Not Sure What Brand Of Bulb But I Have 2 Of Them And They’re About 15" From The Uros
8) Diet items being fed and how often each item is fed
Dandelion Greens Regularly, Peas (Pheobes Goes Crazy For Them) Carrot Peelings, Kale Occasionally. Some Apple Once In Awhile Tried Kiwi But They Didn’t Seem To Take To It.
9) List of the supplements being used, how much is used, and how often the supplement is used
Actually To Say The Truth The Only Time I Had Any Sort Of Supplements Was With The Celci Sand, I Haven’t Had One Problem With Either Uro.
10) Type of substrate (cage bottom material). If this is sand, state whether it is calcium sand
Budgie/Finch Seed
11) Describe your animal’s daily routine. When it exits the hide, when it retreats for the night, how long it is usually out throughout the day, is it active during this time, how much time does it spend sitting on the basking spot….
Exits Hide Around 10:30am And Basks For A Few Hours, Then I Usually Take Them Out For About Half An Hour. And Around 11 ish They’re Ready To Go Back To Sleep. In The Summertime They’re Out Alot, Usually For A Couple Hours Every Few Days Running Around On The Grass.
12) Describe your animal’s appetite.
I Would Think They Eat Normally. But If There’s Peas In Their Dish They’ll Chow Them All Down As Fast As Possible.
13) Describe any unusual behaviors you are seeing or any recent changes in behavior. Also note whether any recent modifications have been made to this animal’s environment. e.g new enclosure, move to another room, new heat bulb....
None
14) Describe how often this animal is handled and the type of handling.
Pheobes Usually Sits On My Shoulder Or In My Hoodie When I’m Wearing It. Bowzer’s Still Young Yet So He’s All Over The Place.
15) State whether the animal has been to a vet, when that was, and whether the animal was diagnosed with a medical condition. Also state whether the uromastyx has ever had a fecal check. If so states when the fecal check was done, what was found, and if medication was prescribed.
No Problems As Of Yet. Probably Due For A Checkup Though Just To Make Sure.

Urokeeper is being cleaver! I have asked Doug to delete both of mine, but if I find out that Urokeeper has copied and posted any more of my posts to another forum, I will report him to Doug.

I was not being cleaver, I posted the "read before posting" in another website to help Uromastyx not to "steal" a post. I just want to help people any way I can and this questionaire is a great way to do this. I took one questionaire (read before posting) and put it on a site to better the lives of these animals and I never once copied and pasted anyone’s personal posts.

I never knew people just wanted one post. I will refrain from bumping up Sahells mom’s "read before posting" anymore and I appologize if I am doing anything wrong in bumping this questionnaire to the top. In the future I will only bump the 1 up. I don’t think it is a crime to post somthing that will only do good for other forum/groups. I should have and will give credit to RZ in the future and have given RZ credit when I re-posted it. why have 3 posts if nobody can respond to the other 2... I mean what is the point of creating 3 and then scolding sombody (that has no idea your wishes) for bumping up a thread to help out around the forum.
