Hornworm through the hole https://imgur.com/gallery/YnUD9Yt

Devlyn has gotten some wonderful hornworm treats. One worm a day, just like last time she woke up from brumation. Something tasty and spring-like. She has had 4 dubia roaches since waking. She started eating for salad with some vigor.

I also saw Devlyn spooked something awful yesterday! I have no idea what scared her.

Came home over lunch break because Devlyn was glass surfing. She was obviously excited and wanted to run around. I let her out then went to make tea. Had my back to her when I heard the most frantic running sounds. It wasn't a normal I'm a running dragon sounds. If that makes sense, it didn't sound right. Then had to crawl on the floor looking for her only to see she had ran underneath her enclosure along the wall. Full black beard like I've never seen before, arms and legs tucked underneath her as if she was scared of being torn limb from limb so she had to hide her limbs.

I don't know what spooked her! My cat was napping on a chair, first thing I checked once I knew Devlyn was safe because I know it's always a possibility, but the cat who was not even in the same room. There is a window. Maybe she saw something? My husband was also napping so he was down. No TV or radio on. It was as quiet as can be. I was standing stirring tea which she sees and hears all the time. I wish I could ask her what happened. Been looking her over to see if any injury happened, no signs of injury. I'll never know.

Devlyn has her annual vet check up today. She is going in with my spouse. It's too bad I can't be with her. I couldn't be with her anyway because of the drop off / pick up nature of the vet.

I am strangely excited to get new blood work ups done for her. It will be her 3rd blood tests and the 1st time I truly haven't been concerned about anything.

Also have Nationwide Pet insurance so that will be exciting to report on!

Devlyn on her way to the vet with my spouse. We do have a lid it was just off so she could enjoy the view.

On the way back with me! I was able to pick her up over my lunch break

I tried to take a pretty Devlyn picture and she purposefully darkened her lady lipstick. How rude!

Submitted first claim to Nationwide for her $235.30 bill. Physical exam and Chemistries. Won't have the chemistry results until next week. I'm so excited! The vet was very happy with her physical exam.

The vet wrote a lovely note:

Devlyn is healthy on her examination today. She has increased in weight to 412 grams from her previous visit at which time she weighed 370 grams in Feb 2020. She is at a good weight today, keep up the great work with her diet and husbandry!

We will call with lab results next week once they become available.

Thank you for allowing us to care for Devlyn, she is a sweet girl!

Dr. Langer


My husband got more over the phone when dropping her off. Apparently Devlyn was a bit fiesty but calmed down after a short time with the vet. Too bad I missed her being sassy with the vet.

Everything in from testing. Calcium was high. I have been using calcium without D3 since her last test. I definitely won't get any new Ca+D3 containers. I will be decreasing calcium supplement to twice a week. Up to three times. I was giving her calcium on some of her meals and she got hornworms after waking. Maybe she is hoarding calcium for eggs? But then I would think her blood calcium would decrease. A little concerning. Overall the vet thought she looked great with her body, ears, eyes, muscles, scales.

Fun climbing the house plants and "basking" in the real sun. Since I know her calcium is good she can indulge in the real sun for awhile

Devlyn has been CLIMBING on the plants. My phone decided to make that all caps. It knows the story.

So Devlyn is climbing over plants which I am happy for. They are for her and me. She decided to try climbing a cactus and dumped the cactus all over herself. It's a little cactus and both plants and Devlyn appear okay. I have 1 cactus. Of course she decided to try climbing it

Ok so TODAY of all days Devlyn decided to be a good girl and eat her salad. Radicchio, Arugula, Tuscan Kale, and Parsley with multivitamin powder, Bene-bac, and flower topper.

I was letting the apocalypse get me down in February with less variety. Dang apocalypse....

Barely any left in her dish which was full early

Soon Devlyn and I are going to have more instagram followers than my sister. Which will be the first time I've ever outgamed her at anything. Oh yeah. Devlyn wins!

No patience, hornworm now https://imgur.com/gallery/EfwakRb

Devlyn surprised me with the jump. This is funnier than if I had been able to get a "good shot" feeding her. She gobbled that hornworm and stuck the landing. Strong good girl

Ok so it was delayed a bit, but I finally got Devlyn's new enclosure. Some of the trim was damaged. The damaged bit of trim disappeared into another dimension and cannot be found (like seriously, we can't find it, where would wood go?!).

Anyway. Devlyn won't move into her new house right away. I figure I can take the next 1-2 weeks between setting it up and testing the new thermostat to show her the new place and let her get some of her scent on it. Then after 2 weeks it would be nice to move her old house...somewhere. I have no plan for her old house.

The heating will be a 120 watt Vivarium Electronics heat panel. The thermostat is same brand VE-300x2. Arcadia T5 14 % UVB with reflector. I might need to add Arcadia LED lights strip to add more brightness to the enclosure.
