Rajah is doing a weird summertime brumation, I think somehow the big move confused him because it’s colder and been raining a lot, not sure but definitely brumating. I dragged the unwilling out today for a bath. Still semi chonky despite not eating in weeks I don’t think he’s lost a single millimeter of roundness, lol.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from the pumpkin king! Rajah got unceremoniously “bathroomed” today in his tub and had his tank cleaned for Christmas! (Hence the side eye) He’s got a special treat for later involving big hornworms!
It’s always a whole process to get Rajah to drink water (not for lack of trying on his part) but today it was really a brain cell not detected moment as I tried various dishes of various shapes and sizes and finger wiggling and his tongue was always slightly out of reach of the water until finally we made contact lol and he had a nice long drink. All of this was rather unwelcome attention as Rajah has been brumating for a while now and I dragged him out to make sure he stays hydrated.
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
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?
