Hello,

That is good news she has taken water & some food from you. I agree, go slowly on the
feeding of the critical care formula & feeding live insects right now isn't necessary until she
gets quite a bit better.
Are you able to keep her a little warmer overight right now? We are all pulling for her, keep
us posted on how she is doing.

Wow, it sounds like she's taking in a good amount of hydration ! Be very careful of a heat mat though, is she in contact with it or is it under the tank ?

yeah she is trying her best and so am I - her heatmap is underneath her sand so not in direct contact but it only heats up to a certain heat then knocks off

Hello!

That is good to hear you have a heat mat for her so she can stay warm. I hope the food is helping
her out & that she is able to digest it easily. Please keep us posted on her.

Hi - she seems quite a fair bit more alert and her beard isn't as dark now which is a good sign. Her movement and weight are still a concern however it has only been two days so hopefully over a longer period of time we see an improvement in those. I deffintley think she is more alert now though.

Hello,

Oh bless her, I know this for sure, she definitely knows how much you love her! She is getting to live
her life out as fully as possible, with you. Hopefully she is feeling better!

Thank you both can't tell you how much of a help you have been up until this point! I really appreciate it! Her name is Magnet, she often just gets Mags or Maggie though. 🤣

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
