it been 4 or 5 days since her meal. temps at night are 74, daytime temps range 78-83.

Keep it 83-85 all the time.

how common is crypto?

Very common,unfortunately

how many of you dealt with this disease and what was your outcome?

Lots of us sadly, and currently the freezer is the only known cure.

how contagious is it?

VERY HIGHLY is an understatement.

i have the emerald in a gorgeous habitat sys. custom enclosure. it is a cabinet system with heat panels and it has 6 individual cubicals, it stands 6ft high 4ft wide with each cubical measuring 24x24x24. THE REASON FOR DESCRIBING THIS IS THAT I HAVE GREEN TREES IN THE OTHER 5 CUBICALS HOW EASILY CAN THEY CATCH CRYPTO WITH THE SET UP I HAVE, THEY ARE NOT IN CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER BUT YET IM DRIVING MYSELF CRAZY THINKING ABOUT IT????!!!!

STRICT ISOLATION IMMEDIATELY! Sanitize every cage and anything used on or for the the animals.


the emmy is wormed ect. and when the rat was in her stomach her coils were alot looser than before she ate it, do y'all think the meal may have been to big? i tried a mouse the night before the rat and she didnt even look at it. the is my 1st emmy and compared to the green trees this snake is making me feel like a dumbass. please let me hear what you guys think.-Darren Leavitt

Contact whomever you got it from and DEMAND a full refund if they wont give it to you. This not something that will just go away if it is crypto. Sounds like someone dumped another problem animal off on you.
