Forgot to note that he enjoyed his annual trip to the lake in northern MN earlier this month. He swam a little bit, but didn't have a ton of interest this year. He did go out on a short paddleboard ride and seemed to enjoy that. Otherwise he was pretty low key and roamed around the cabin and spent some time outside basking on the porch and the dock.

Another long break between posts here. Darwin is still doing well. He skipped his usual brumation period this fall and was alert and active the whole time, which is great. He settled right in to his new house and still loves looking out the sliding glass door to the balcony and basking by it. He was spending the last week asleep in his tank, but woke up yesterday and was awake again today. Ate his whole salad yesterday so his appetite is still up, to an extent. Took out a few black soldier flies too. He might be slowing down or just having a short break, not sure yet. Weighed him at 590g (!) last week, which is the highest he's weighed so far. I take that as a good sign. I was able to get a local source for hornworms and BSFL for Christmas which was nice. Don't have to rely on shipping during the cold season. Coming up on his 7th birthday/6th adoption day in a couple of weeks =).

I'm so glad to hear he's still doing well. I don't have beardies anymore but I was thinking about you and Darwin not too long ago.
