  • What do mites look like?

    I found a little hard brownish-red bug floating in my girls water today. Its still alive but my camera cant get a good pix of it. Im concerned she has mites. If she does do I need to take her to the vet or is it something you can just fix?

        Thanks. From what you have told me or rather given me to read, I am almost positive what I found was not a mite. Its way to big!! It looked like a little beetle, about 3mm in length. Not sure where it cam from but her cage will get a complete cleaning tonight.

            No, its not a tick. Im still not sure what it is. It seems to have wings so it could have flown in while her cage was open. I looked her over really well and she seems fine ;D. Im going to take the bug to LLL reptiles next time I go get crickets for my beardie and see if they know what it is. Ill let you all know when I find out. Thanks for all the help guys
