Zeus

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Zeus is a 5 year old male corn snake that came into our care after his owner sadly passed away. He is a just over 4.5ft in length and is quite a chunk!  Zeus has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and is in wonderful condition. 

When Zeus arrived, he was a feisty boy that wasn’t used to being handled and wasn’t happy when you entered his vivarium. Fast forward a few weeks and Zeus is a totally different snake! We can clean his viv with no issues and he’s happy and inquisitive when handled.  He does love to explore his vivarium and is often found burrowing in the aspen or moving in between the branches so a large viv with lots of enrichment is a must to keep him entertained! 

Zeus is a strong willed snake and due to his size he would be better suited to someone with experience of snakes, that will continue to handle him on a regular basis. Zeus will require a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm x a height of 40cm and a 40cm, which will allow him to fully stretch out. He will require a thermal gradient of 28-30°C at the warm end and 20-24°C at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat. Ideally, a 2-7% UV bulb must also be provided.

If you are interested in adopting Zeus or would like more information about him, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

Tango

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Tango has been in our care since the end of Janaury 2018! We think she keeps being overlooked because of her colour but we think she is beautiful. Tango originally came into our care from a multi-animal household where the animals were all in poor, cramped conditions and sadly their needs were not being met.

Tango has been examined by an exotic specialist vet and has been given a clean bill of health and is now looking for a new home. The first thing you notice about Tango is her vibrant blood orange colouring, she is a gorgeous snake. She can be a little bit excitable at feeding times but she’s still young (approx 2 years old)and has definitely calmed with regular handling and a good feeding routine. She eats and sheds with no issues. Tango loves climbing up the branches and leaves in her vivarium and can usually be found curled up in her humid hide.

She will eventually require a vivarium with length of 120cm x height of 40cm x width of 40cm, which will allow her to fully stretch out. She is currently living in a vivarium half this length as young snakes can often become stressed in an environment which is too big for them. She will require a thermal gradient of 28-30°c at the warm end and 20-24°c at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat. Ideally, a 2-7% UV bulb should also be provided.

If you are interested in adopting Tango or would like more information about her, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

Athena

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Athena is a 3 year old female corn snake who was picked up by an inspector after being abandoned in a property. Athena was found hiding under a rug and had been without proper care for around six weeks!

Athena is quite a strong willed snake and she’s not overly keen on being handled.  She does love to explore her vivarium and is often found burrowing in the aspen or moving between hides. Athena would benefit from regular handling to help her to rebuild her trust in people. We think an experienced owner would suit her best.

Athena will require a vivarium with a length of 120cm x a height of 40cm and a 40cm, which will allow her to fully stretch out. She will require a thermal gradient of 28-30°C at the warm end and 20-24°C at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat. Ideally, a 2-7% UV bulb must also be provided.

If you are interested in adopting Athena or would like more information about her, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

 

Babs

RESERVED

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Barbara, or Babs as she is known to her pals, is a lovely adult female bearded dragon that came into our care after being found stray and taken to a local pet shop. Unfortunately, all attempts to trace her owners were unsuccessful so she is now looking for a new home. She has had a full health check by an exotic specialist vets, including a faecal test for internal parasites and other than being a little (ok, a lot!) on the chunky side, she is in good health.  

It is quite obvious that larger than life Babs loves her grub! Her eyes light up when she sees an insect coming her way and she will hop off her log to snap it up but she is not so keen when we bring out her greens. She often sits by her bowl waiting for something more exciting than veg to come along. Barbara spends most of her days as all dragons do, basking in the rays and wondering when her next meal will arrive. She is happy to be handled and is becoming more inquisitive as the days pass. She is going to make a wonderful addition to the right family.  

Barbara will require a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm, 60cm height and 60cm depth will be required. There needs to be a thermal gradient of 38-42 at the warm end and 22-26 at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat and a 10-12% UV bulb must also be provided. 

If you are interested in adopting Babs or would like more information about her, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk

 

 

Stitch

Location: RSPCA Adoption Centre, Stockport Pets At Home

Stitch is a lovely adult beardie that came into our care after being picked up as a stray by a member of the public. They took her to a local vet but they had no facilities for exotic animals and contacted the RSPCA. The first thing you notice about Stitch is the fact she’s missing her tail! Once moved to an exotic specialist vet, Stitch was diagnosed with a necrotic tail and as a result she required surgery to amputate the dead tissue and prevent further infection. She has also been treated for internal parasites whilst in our care.

Fast forward a few months and Stitch is as good as new! Her stump has practically healed and her recovery has been fantastic so she’s now waiting for a forever home to come her way. Stitch has two loves in life; her food and her water bowl! She loves nothing more than jumping into her bowl and splashing around or chasing the food around her viv. She eats really well, both her veg and her live food, and often sits by her bowl waiting for us to give her a little bit extra!

She is happy to be handled and is a really inquisitive dragon. Stitch is going to make a wonderful addition to the right family. Stitch will require a vivarium with a minimum length of 120cm, 60cm height and 60cm depth will be required. There needs to be a thermal gradient of 38-42 at the warm end and 22-26 at the cool end. Temperatures must be controlled using a thermostat and a 10-12% UV bulb must also be provided. 

If you are interested in adopting Stitch or would like more information about her, please call 0161 480 4754 or email  stockport-adoption-centre@rspca.org.uk
