Like A Weed!!
So, Thomas Patrick Phillips has been home with me for officially three weeks now. I was going to wait a month before getting too excited, but it seems I'm doing something right, as this little guy is growing like a weed! He's eating bugs like it's his job! He's even munching at salads (after sitting in them for a while, or course), especially if I wiggle the squash in front of him so he thinks it's worms...
Here he is the first night I brought him home, December 8th, at 24 grams... Already showing that mischievous personality, it seems... ("It's bed time, get that light out of my face, crazy lady!") [Click image to enlarge]
(Working on a shed on his whole head and abdomen, poor thing)
And here he is last night, December 30th, at 50 grams!! (Now working on a shed for all his appendages, guy can't catch a break!) [Click image to enlarge]
Haven't measured his length, but he's definitely gonna be a big'un. Might have to open up the rest of his tank soon!
And, just because, here's his 'come hither' look... [Click image to enlarge]
"Helloooooo, Lady Lizards!"
Happy New Year, Everyone!!
