Maya's Feeding Time

It's always hard for me to get him a photo of him eating his greens.

I handfeed him daily, dandylion greens, zuchinni squash, alfalfa powder, spirulina, milk thistle, black cherry powder, calcium powder without D3; Monday-Friday and Sunday through Friday and with D3 on Saturdays, Multivitamin every 3-4 days, Moringa powder, bee pollen and spring water. Crunchy veggies, too.

He does have liquid calcium and liquid multivitamin in case he decides he has had enough of his powders. He hasn't turned his head up at them yet. So that's a good thing.

Another improvement I have noted is that he's starting to use his front legs a little more. He will climb up on my head, arm wave, head bob, and crawl up to my face and scratch my face with his hand. (I don't use claws or paws.) He's climbing more, up and down his basking spot. Climbing on his perch and sitting there. Sometimes, I help him back on his UVB perch because he can't pull himself up yet. Little by little. I think I need to create a perch where his hammock is so perhaps he can walk across and plop himself down on his basking UVB spot. (Both UVB and Heat lamp are side by side.)

Another improvement is that he is looking at his greens now. But won't eat on his own yet.

I hope he continues to improve. Every now and then, he has some set backs where he doesn't use his front legs and the other day, his limbs were swollen. I gave him some Serrapeptase the next couple of days. He's feeling good.
The only thing I forgot to mention is that he has no interest in bugs.

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?
