Gave her liquid food and a little bit of olive oil today. Let me know any other tips to help her poop! Basking spot is 95-102 throughout the day. Her body isn’t used to digesting this often.

Today is day 6 no poop.

Great job on rescuing this baby ! Like others have said, they can still grow to a much larger size. What and how much has she been eating ? She will go soon no doubt but you can get some canned pumpkin [ no spices added ] or baby food squash and ad a drop of olive oil to any of those things. She'll have a surprise for you soon. :poop:

I have noticed that Bodie got in her hide about 2 hours before bedtime. I peaked in there today at 4:30pm and she had her head down and eyes closed like she was trying to sleep already. I would adjust her down to a 10hr schedule but I’m worried about triggering brumation. These months might be her last change to eat and grow and I’m worried that triggering brumation could stunt that. At the same time I feel bad keeping the lights on when she wants to go to bed. She’s currently on a 12hr schedule.

Sounds good. How many insects had she been eating daily since you've had her ?
After she pooped I switched her back onto dubia roaches, either lots of tiny ones (maybe 15-20?) or 4-5 larger (for her) ones. The more frequently she starts pooping I’ll increase her protein. Just trying to get a sense of how much she can eat still. Her little belly gets pretty full looking fairly easily.

I’m getting more dubias that will be the perfect medium size for her.

O.K sounds good . Keep her on the 12 hour light schedule, she can nap if she wants to and then still have a full nights sleep with no lights.

Bodie had her first vet visit today!

She was such a good girl and even pooped on the way there, so I was able to give them a sample! Doc recommended her a new calcium powder that has a safe level of vitamin D (low level) and new gut-loading food for her roaches.

He also stressed that she should have some more variety with her insects. I usually rely on salads to offer variety but I think this is also a good idea. However, silkworms are one of my favorites to give and I cannot find the website I used to order them on! Someone on here recommended it because dubiaroaches.com is always out of stock. Please lmk if you know a good place to get them and also let me know your favorite insects to feed so I can offer variety. I won’t do crickets or mealworms. The ones I’m familiar already with are dubias, silkworms, BSFLs, and hornworms.

Worried about these spots on her front hands. More photos attached.

Could this be skin cancer? 😰

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?
