    Another rescue for us...

    Update on Medusa (aka, Skinny Minnie): Well, it appears that we still have a ways to go with this girl. After eating like a champ on Monday, she ate less on Tuesday, barely anything on Wednesday, and nothing yet so far today... On the upside, she has been enjoying her baths and the staining...

    Aw, thanks. Very much hoping to see this girl thrive. She still has a ways to go; second poop revealed barely a urate, and a hard, dry one at that. Will keep hydrating and sticking with plant-based food until I'm confident her kidneys are in working order. Then we'll start small and more...

    BP Rescue

    Yesterday we adopted/rescued a female BP, the same age as our male: four years. However, little Squeak is about the size of a four MONTH old (similar to the size of our Drake when we got him). Squeak's spine is prominent, but not overly so, and she appears to have a small "bump" just beneath her...

    These photos better capture her malnourishment issues... She's just about five years old, hatched around the same time as "the princess" here: The difference is rather stunning, though MuMu is more robust than some. ;)

    What I learned about our new girl today: she is crazy photogenic! Also, that one day of good care can actually make a difference. Yesterday, she came to us dull, wrinkled, and sunken-eyed. After one day, her color has brightened, her wrinkles have subsided a bit, and her eyes look more...

    Update: She downed her dish of kale and tangerine bits this morning, and is now eating some squash--slightly cooked. She is happy to be eating and willingly heads to the dish when I place it in the viv. Frankly, it's a bit of an amusement for us to see a beardie feeding herself veggies as our...

    Many thanks, Dragonlover! I appreciate the advice on feeding protein. I was planning to hold off a few days at least to get her hydrated, but I'm thinking I'll hold off a bit longer than that, as per your advice. What should I be looking for in terms of protein readiness? On the upside: she...

    What do you do? The kid down the street, whom we know hasn't been taking proper care of his dragon for five years running, stops by and asks if we/my son would like to adopt her... ...for years, we've wanted to get our hands on this poor girl who, thanks to our badgering years ago, has at...

    Cloudy has his first boo boo

    Wow, honey... who knew? So far, I've been just dabbing it with warm water and a touch of soap on a cotton ball. But I wanted to treat with something before he snuggles in for the night. I don't have any honey in the house at present, so I'll have to use some antibiotic ointment. Many thanks...

    Cloudy has his first boo boo

    Hey all, It's been ages since I've been on the boards and I'm in need of some input. Five-year-old Cloudy, who is graying everwhere in preperating for a shed, somehow scaped his chin and peeled off a bit of shed off before it's time. I believe he's managed to knock off a scale given the touch...

    Dusting

    If you're concerned about them not getting enough calcium dust, you can always sprinkle a little on top of the greens as well. :)

    Thoughts of keeping more than one beardie...

    *cross posted on Spike's ER thread* Hey all! Things continue to look up for Spike. :) The lowdown: He is stronger now, holding up his head and body a lot more. He's had three normal, textbook poops! So relieved! (Oh how we love to discuss poop around here! lol) His appetite is great...

    Advice for our new adoptee

    *cross posted on my thread in general discussion* :) Spike is still continuing on the upswing. ReptiSuns should be arriving today, but thankfully we've had plenty of real sun this week, so lots of UVB to go around for both dragons. Spike's eye is open more and more of the time, and while it's...

    Thoughts of keeping more than one beardie...

    Thanks, Brandon. :) He is definitely "out of proportion" but he is so darn cute... weak still, but hopefully the new diet and husbandry will remedy that and who knows? Maybe he'll actually grow into his head someday?! At 3-4 years old I'm not sure if that's even possible, but we'll try to make...

    Advice for our new adoptee

    Butter received today. Planning to feed in the am. :) His tail base IS good, and that was very encouraging, despite the other issues. I'm hoping that the new diet and husbandry will help with the low weight, and who knows, he might even grow into his head someday? He is definitely weak, doesn't...

    Thanks, Michael! Well... as promised, pics of our dear boy: In the viv (good eye side) -- black beard all day yesterday, but not so much today! Top view -- little boy for 3-4 years old, eh? My name is Spike, and my head is too big for my body. *sigh* (I noticed he prefers to have it...
