Is his mouth ok? He had some purée on it. Also, he’s shedding there. I just notice some black around it, but I think it has always been there. Also, how can I clean his face. I got most of the food off. But, I’m struggling to get it off closer to his eyes. I was using a q-tip, but he tries to eat it. He tries to eat a toothbrush as well. He gets really mad about paper towels and baths as well. I think he’s been getting stressed, so i wanted to do it in the least stressful way possible. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Maybe try some solid foods like collard, turnip or mustard greens as they are less messy. Feeding him puree will always be messy and cleaning around the eyes is very difficult. Why do you feed her puree?

I feed purée on the mustard greens. Because she gets picky with the greens without a little bit on them.

You can try to get him used to eating it without the puree. He might no from the start but remember they can go a long time without food and he will it if he's really hungry.

Other than that....Q-tip and just be carefull and distract him with something.
Luis likes belly rubs. He'll stop moving around and I can scrub him of without any complains. But he likes being dried off with a towel also, maybe that's worth a try...

Ok, thank you! I’m going to definitely try less purees because his appetite has been good. She is just still on and off with the greens when they are plain. She gets mad whenever she sees a towel. But, I think I can try distracting her somehow. That’s kinda how I got most of it off.

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

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?
